We're heading back to that little basement in South Oakland, this time in support of a roots country/white soul band from Columbus, Ohio called Steamboat. We love playing basement gigs, probably more than bars or anything else, and the Aviary is a great one. It's a more intimate kind of venue, right up in the faces of the people there listening; a place where no matter your sound, it is presented directly to the people. Whether they like it or not.
There is an intensity in that, one that can't be found anywhere with a sound man and seating and lights. So we're really excited to be back and playing with some great bands including Legs Like Tree Trunks, who are opening for Ke$ha (go figure that one out), at Bigelow Bash this year, and of course, Sleepy V, our lovely hosts as always. We hope you can make it, and that you bring along a case of PBR too, because what's a South Oakland house party without a whole fuck-ton of everyone's favorite piss-in-a-can?
