Hurrah! It’s the start of the USA & Canada Tape Deck Heart Tour. We kicked things off in Cleveland last night with a crazy good crowd and a fun show. Having The Smith Street Band and Koo Koo Kanga Roo with us is a pleasure (get down early, they’re both amazing). Cahir is playing guitar for me, and all is going swimmingly.
Something I wanted to mention: we have a tour flag! We did one of these in the UK a while back and it was a great success. This time around, some people have organized it themselves, which is super awesome. Above is a photo of me and them and the flag (and our bus) yesterday at the start of the tour. The game works like this: the flag has to get to every show on the tour without my help, just with people going to the shows making friends and so on. The flag has a Facebook page and a twitter; it also has a book you can sign and leave messages in with it. If you’re coming to more than one show, get involved!
Anyhoo. See you at a show sometime soon!
