Hey everybody. We’re excited to say that we’ll be playing our third annual Raindance festival this year, Sunday afternoon at the beautiful Hornings Hideout. This festivals’ proceeds go to Breast Cancer so it’s really a party for a purpose, and at $50 for a weekend of amazing music on an amazing stage and some gorgeous camping it really should be a fantastic time.
Tonight, from 7-10pm Left Coast Country will be playing at the Kennedy School. This is an all ages event, which is great for us because not all that often can families bring the kids out. If y’all haven’t been to the Kennedy School before, it’s a pretty sweet place so get there a little early and walk around, go into the old classrooms, janitor closets, the boiler room, courtyards, etc. Hope to see everyone out.
Now that Festival/Wedding season is coming to an end we’re incredibly excited to announce that we will be headed back to Colorado in early-mid November and looping around to the Bay Area in California on our way back up to Oregon.
We’re also proud to announce that we have started on our third album which is going to be a full length LP displaying many yet to be debut songs we’ve been tirelessly working on perfecting for y’all. We’re super excited to share them with you, so make it out for our upcoming in-town shows. The album will be coming out early to mid spring, we’ll be sure to let you know.
We’ve covered a lot of ground, played for a bunch of amazing people at some fantastic venues, and gained some incredible fans along the way.
We’re excited to announce that we will be playing the Pre-NWSS Party at the Goodfoot with Windy Hill, Gypsy Moon, and Four on the Floor. The show is Wednesday August 8th at 9pm and goes all night. This tradition starts off the weekend’s festivities so be sure to make it out for a good night and some great fun.
