Hey Y'all!! Kat Fountain here, bringing you some tales from the road. We headed out from West Virginia about five weeks ago with our brand new van thanks to all of the Kickstarter donations. Let me tell you, that ride is P-I-M-P. We're talking AC, tinted windows, enough seating for the whole band & co. and just an overall jubilance that we can't even begin to describe.
After doing a show in North Carolina and Alabama we headed down to our favorite city, New Orleans. You can play music and drink on the street, eat the best food, and meet the most interesting people. If you haven't been, GO!! Right now!! Well…maybe not RIGHT now since it's about 100 degrees, but that city will give you one of the best experiences of your life. Just remember: Frenchman street, not Bourbon street. That way you can skip the drunken tourists and instead listen to the local music and get a real feel for the city.
Another highlight of the trip was our participation in one of the most infamous invite-only festivals, Road to Rich's in Ramah, NM. It's all about the high lonesome desert with enough great music and food to go around, you'll forget that there was ever a moment in your life that you felt unsatisfied. There is a strict rule: no freaking hand drums!! Ever!! It's all about the late-night picking circles, and Rich aims to keep it that way. One of the best parts was after the festival when we all hung out and watched the AMAZING solar eclipse. Please check out our photo gallery for some images from the event.
And now, my friends, we find ourselves in Wichita Falls, TX after doing three radio spots to promote our show tomorrow night at the Iron Horse Pub. If you didn't know already, it's the best venue in this crazy cow-town! Last time we played here people couldn't get enough, and we're ready to bring them another show that they won't forget.
After Texas, we'll be heading back to West Virginia for a whole string of shows via Eureka Springs, Arkansas so stay tuned to see if we are heading to a town near you! This is my first blog entry, but there are more to come. Heck, I might even throw in some stories that I will later regret posting. Thanks for reading, and keep listening to that mountain music. Because…lets face it….pop music really kinda sucks.
