We are a little more than one week away from embarking on our first national tour – the 2012 Midwest Missile Tour!!! We can’t wait to bring our American Fiddle Rock to the rest of the country! This week we are going to break down the tour and tell you all a little bit about where we will be playing in August:
THURSDAY, AUGUST 2 – LAS VEGAS, NV – MCMULLAN’S
We will be kicking off the tour in Las Vegas at McMullan’s Irish Pub, a very cool pub on Tropicana near The Orleans (home of the Las Vegas Wranglers Hockey Club). This will be our first show as Lexington Field, but back in the day “Fiffin Market” played there a couple times and always had st! It seemed like a good way to start the tour off in style, plus we will be returning to McMullan’s on Friday, September 14.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 3 – SALT LAKE CITY, UT – PIPER DOWN PUB
On to Utah we go! We wake up and make the trek through the desert to Salt Lake City, home of the Utah Jazz! The Piper Down Pub was one of the first shows we booked when we set off to map out this tour. It looks like a pretty happening place to be on a Friday night.
SATURDAY, AUGUST 4 – DENVER, CO – SCRUFFY MURPHY’S
Through the Rocky Mountains, a pretty long drive will lead us to Denver. I first heard of Scruffy Murphy’s through PaddyRock.com (saw an ad on the site) and then noticed The Mighty Regis played there earlier this year on tour. Well, we just had to see what all the hoopla was all about! We also will to share the stage with Colorado Celtic Rockers Delilah’s Revenge, a rad band from Boulder. They also were recently named Band of the Month on CELTIC -FOLK-PUNK blog site, and we can’t wait to share the stage with them!
SUNDAY, AUGUST 5 – LINCOLN, NE – DUFFY’S TAVERN
Sunday is a busy day for us. Not only are we driving the entire state of Nebraska, we are playing not one but TWO shows at Duffy’s Tavern. The first show will be All-Ages at 5 pm and we get to play with Lincoln locals On Approach and an acoustic set by A Summer Better Than Yours. Then at 9, in comes the 21+ crowd to rock out with us, Lincoln rockers All My Friends Are Dinosaurs & Dude Won’t Die. Then one of the highlights of the tour, one of my best friends, Josh and his band Hoo Doo Buzzards will open the show! He is coming from Grand Island, NE to play a show with us. It will be good times in the cornhusker state!
MONDAY, AUGUST 6 – KANSAS CITY, MO – THE RIOT ROOM
Step one: Have some killer BBQ for dinner! Step two: Play one of Kansas City’s most popular music venues the Kansas City’s very own folk rockers Flannigan’s Right Hook & Three Dollar Band. Step Three: Have some drinks and party cause we have an off day on Tuesday!
