It has been a while since I last checked in with y’all; Real Live Tigers' southeastern U.S. tour with the Cocker Spaniels has kept me busy! If you’re in St. Augustine, Savannah, Atlanta, Charleston or Charlotte, please consider attending our remaining shows.
I have some bad news to report: due to unforeseen circumstances, Chris Lopez has canceled his August tour. He’s still part of the Happy Nomad Booking roster, though, and I look forward to booking another tour for him at a more opportune time.
Fortunately, I also have better news to report: HNB has two new additions to its roster! They are as follows:
1) Lake Charles, LA duo When the Word Was Sound, whose lengthy instrumentals pair lush layers of synthesizer with loose yet forceful drumming. If you like early Seefeel, you’ll dig this band. I’ll be booking regional “long weekends” for them over the new few months.
2) New Orleans, LA producer AF THE NAYSAYER, whose beats sit comfortably within the continuum that connects A Tribe Called Quest’s “Low End Theory” album with the Los Angeles weekly hip-hop/electronic showcase of the same name. I’ll be helping him book a U.S. tour with equally worthy producers Prism House and Slomile Swift through the eastern seaboard in September.
As always, I’ll keep you updated as these itineraries are confirmed. In the meantime, please spread the word about HNB and its artists, and don’t hesitate to contact me about anything involved HNB and its mission.
