California we love you so.
We’re headed your way with special guest Daniel Rodriguez (of Elephant Revival) the day after Thanksgiving -
11/24 Moe's Alley, Santa Cruz
11/29 The Siren, Morro Bay
It’s too early to talk about healing, but if you want to do some forgetting, or get some loving, come find us. We got you. Anyone affected by the fires, who would like to come but is not in a position to buy tickets, message us. We’ll take care of it. Partial proceeds of all these shows and our merch sales will go to benefit two great relief organizations: The North Valley Community Foundation’s Camp Fire Evacuation Relief Fund -https://www.nvcf.org/fund/camp-fire-evacuation-relief-fund/
After California we’re Great Lake bound - with our hearts set on our return to Chicago and a special acoustic show at Space on December 5th- also wsg Daniel Rodriguez. You all know our history there. There isn’t a better listening venue in the country.
Tickets are getting scarce, so please - old friends - grab some now. We need a reunion in the worst way. We’ll head up to Minneapolis and play 2 shows in Wisconsin before we wrap the tour up for this year.
The New Year will take us all over the map starting mid January in Mexico at a wonderful festival put on by the fabulous Cordovas band - called Tropico de Cancer in Todos Santos, a benefit for the fire fighting Bomberos- Po’Girl will also be playing a special set (our first official show together since 2012!) and the brilliant Awna Teixeira will be playing solo as well… We’ll be in excellent company - the whole line-up is fantastic.
We’ll make stops at AMA UK Festival in London, and at Celtic Connections in Glasgow. And in February -we’ll be showcasing at Folk Alliance International in my (Alli) beautiful hometown, Montreal. We’ll also be taking part in some very special collaborations TBA soon…
Flux, demolition, erosion, conflagration… things fall apart, blow up, burn. We’ve been getting slammed with that truth a lot lately. But not our hearts. Not our love.
Let’s keep it tight, and let the church roll on!
Thankful for all of you and the goodness you radiate into the world,
Love and Revelation
Birds of Chicago
