Summer gigs start this weekend!

This summer we have a super limited tour schedule- and by that we mean three shows. Don’t sleep on any of these dates! It all kicks off this weekend at The Anchor in Kingston NY. But to make it up to you, we’re doing a special treat: We’ll be playing our new album live. Want a taste of new jams? See you this July!
