Bad news bears and good news bears
When stopping by the Tullycraft blog today, I was greeted by some very saddening news. It seems that Tullycraft have decided to throw in the live show towel! Noooooooooo! Now, as much as I can understand their reasons, I'm still quite broken up about this because I've never had the opportunity to see them live. They are still going to be playing a final show at this year's San Francisco Popfest, but I simply don't have the mean$$$ to make it across the country this Summer. I guess there's always YouTube :( Fortunately they will still be recording music – had I read that they were 100% done for good I just don't know how I would have coped.
These will be Tullycraft's last two shows:
Saturday, April 4 at The Crocodile (Seattle, WA)
Tullycraft w/ "Awesome", BOAT, iji
Saturday, May 23 at The Richshaw Stop (San Francisco, CA)
Tullycraft w/ My Teenage Stride, Northern Portrait, The Magic Bullets, The Smittens
In other less-sad news, One Happy Island are touring en route to SXSW! and they're playing in Baltimore this very Friday the 13th! Scary! If you happen to live in or around Baltimore, MD like myself, you would do very well to not miss this!
