NEXT SHOW: Sat 7/16 Downtown Des Moines Skatepark Fundraiser Featuring PGHM!

Hi guys. We’re very excited to announce that we’ll be playing in Des Moines on Saturday, July 16th at The Des Moines Social Club. We were asked to be a part of this fundraising event for the new skate park in downtown Des Moines. As former skaters, we were thrilled to take part in the show. There have been talks of plans for this skate park for over 15 years, and now it looks like things are really in motion to make it happen. This is a great cause, and worth supporting. It will be an all day festival featuring about 25 musical acts, as well as several other artist displays, food trucks, etc. The lineup is listed above, and you can click the photo or here to view the Facebook event page. Looking forward to this jam! Let’s raise a bunch of money for the park!

‘Real is a Joke’ Tour UPDATE..

What’s up everybody. Just thought I’d post quick about how the tour is going. We’re just over halfway through, with 10 of the 18 shows under our belt. Heading to St. Louis here shortly to continue on at Cicero’s tonight. So far, everything has been pretty good. We’ve been having a lot of fun, making a little money, and I really can’t complain at all. Things have exceeded my expectations on this tour, and I think it’s already safe to say its the most successful run we’ve had to date. Even the shows with small turnouts have been fun, and have had some sort of positive impact on us. It’s been a blast to see a lot of familiar faces, as well as many new ones enjoying the music and vibing out with us. We’ve sold more merch than I expected to. We’ve had some bigger crowds than i thought we would in several cities. I’m just very appreciative of everybody that has been involved with booking, performing, supporting, etc. Special Shoutout to all the homies at the Free Clinic in Kalamazoo, MI. That has been my favorite show of the tour, and honestly one of my favorite shows I’ve ever played. Great atmosphere, and very supportive and involved crowd. I’ve been enjoying every city though, and am pumped for the rest. Hometown show in Des Moines THIS Saturday, the 21st! I think that will be a good one. I will update once the tour is through with tour footage, photos, stories, etc. Thanks so much to everyone rockin’ with us! On we go!
