Schwervon! Summer Sun Tour 2012: Memphis, Springfield, Home

Our return to Memphis was a rocking good time though Friday the 13th bit me in the ass a bit this year. I managed to break a personal record of 3 strings during our set. Luckily, Nan brought the raps and the dance moves and the vibe barely skipped a beat. We shared the bill with Asheville, NC natives Albatross Party and local rockers Bombay Alleys. The vibe of the Buccaneer did us right (could be our new home in Memphis).  We crashed very comfortably that evening as well with Ryan from Bombay Alleys along with his fiancée Jenna and two cats (pictured below).

Our final show of the tour was in Springfield, MO at one of the coolest basements we’ve ever played called The Danger Room. Three locals shared the bill with us. The nights starter was a relentless stoner/screamo duo Chris Gnarly, nice guys. After that were “Danger Room” house pop rock band: The First Teenager Ever.  And after us was, our host Jason’s band, the wall of sound emostastic Flawless. It was a good old fashioned Saturday night Summer house party. I couldn’t think of a better way to end the tour.

Protected by Dragons (Liv's Farm)THANKS to everyone who came out and supported us!!!  It was quite a trip. This was our best US tour to date. We had a great time making new friends and reconnecting with old ones. We’ll be hitting the road in the states one more time before touring in Europe in the fall. We’re especially excited to announce that we’ll be opening forThe Vaselines again on August 30th in Brooklyn, NY at The Bell House. Stay tuned for more headlining shows around this date!
