DIY Dispatch Tour 2022 

Tour.

First show of 2022!  

We're excited to kick off the new year on the hallowed ground that is the stage of the 7th St. Entry! Friday, January 7th.  Finally getting around to a make up show with Partial Traces and happy to have Extraterrestrials and Big Salt on the bill, as well. Both bands' most recent records are great and this should be a fun crossover night with Best New Bands happening in the mainroom. Think of this as a "best kinda new bands made up of kinda old bands." 18+ Proof of vaccination required.

We'll be adding them to the store soon and they will be available at the White Squirrel Bar on November 13. Full band show with We Are The Willows (solo sets).

Bad Penny single out August 13 

The label wanted a single. I thought about some things I had heard over the years and came up with the hook. Recorded the vocals in the upstairs bathroom and resisted writing a bridge. Available on Bandcamp and all the streaming spots August 13.
