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!

– Our next 2 local KC appearances will both be at the legendary: Davey’s Uptown:
July 25th we are a proud be taking part in one of our favorite regular KC institutions Weirdo Wednesdays.
August 18th we’re back at Davey’s with a very “Electric” bill including: Drew Black & The Dirty Electric and The Electric Lungs.

SUMMER SUN TOUR FLICKR SET

Schwervon! Summer Sun Tour 2012: Philly, Baltimore, Roanoke

Chevy
This is Chevy. She lives with our friend Liv on a farm in upstate NY. We stayed with her after out show in Kingston, NY. This is actually the second dog named Chevy that we’ve met on tour this year. They were both extremely sweet.

The Great IndoorsOur buddy Barrett, from Ghostlight, pulled off our last minute Philly house show with flying colors. Thanks for the peeps that came out.

Rock Fuel
The following day we had a great 4th of July backyard show with our old Baltimore pals The Degenerettes and Silence Kid. Special thanks to Rahne and Kristen for putting the night together and Troy for opening up his house for such a lovely party.

Nan on the stairs.The next portion of our tour will be known in the history books as the “Rash Days.” For some mysterious reason, after the Baltimore show, Nan came down with an extreme case of heat rash. She seems really itchy and pretty miserable. Like the ultimate rock Goddess that she is, she still managed to kill it for our Roanoke, VA show last night with The Bastards Of Fate . Our movement towards the South combined with several days of extreme heat already are not making things easy.

Roanoke Flyer
Doug from TBOF was nice enough to make us pancakes this morning! It was great to share a bill with them in our favorite place in Roanoke: Bazaar Consignments. By the way, any friends in the DC area should check out The Bastards Of Fate at The Galaxy Hut in Arlington this Sunday. Cool place! Really cool band!
Watch your cakes!
