It’s an important night: Chester Bay will release a new album. 9Tomorrows will play new music. The Hounds of Finn bring their eclectic set of Irish-American rock. Mikel Wright and the Wrongs play an incredible jam show to close the night. Mr Botzy of CCW will MC all night! This show could very well sell out.

Winter Happenings / Wild & Free
Lots of things happening over this 2013 winter. We are playing a few shows, writing new material, and spending hours in studio to make this new material come to life.
One noteworthy day for us us December 28th. That day we will be playing at Bayside from the usual 9pm-1am. However, before that show, we will be playing a benefit show at the Wild & Free fundraiser to fight the poaching of animals in Africa around 8pm. Definitely want to come show your support and donate, or participate in the silent auctions happening all night! We encourage you to donate at any time online.
Other shows this winter include Bunkers on February 2nd, as well as others likely to be announced down the road. Stay tuned!
If you’ve visited our Facebook page in the last couple months you’ll recognize this, but you’re going to start seeing it more frequently. Cassie Oakes (who also designed all previous artwork) created this and we’ve really fallen in love with it.
The Solid Love Tour is finishing up its east coast leg, which can only mean one thing… We are coming home! I know everyone has been waiting for us to play another show back home with all the sounds and experience we’ve gathered. That reality is coming to be on July 21st at the Dakota Jazz Club. We are playing a late night show there and we are urging all our fans to come out and see us for our official homecoming show for the summer!
Our show schedule continues the following weekend in Wisconsin. We are playing a show with Irie Sol on Saturday and headlining the Harbor Bar Reggae Festival on Sunday! Anyone from WI who has not seen us yet will want to make one of these incredible shows.
9T / Harmony House
We had so much fun on the tour, we made a lot of memories, we met so many new fans, and made some great connections. Our best memory will be working so closely with the Harmony House band and crew. We managed to snag a shot with a few of them and the entire 9Tomorrows crew on the ferry from Hyannis to Nantucket. We will miss them but hope to see them all again soon!
One of our biggest dreams has suddenly come true — we are going on tour with the incredible Beres Hammond–The Solid Love Tour 2012–this summer from the end of May through the end of June. We will be hitting the east coast and parts of Canada. The midwest remains to be seen — we are hoping for the best. We are thrilled and honored to be touring with such a powerful force in the reggae world!
In support of the tour, we will be making a live performance on KARE 11 (MSP TV) on Thursday, May 31st around 11:40AM. Be sure to catch the interview with us. Afterwards, we’ll play a song or two for all the viewers.
We have a long summer of shows and appearances — our tour won’t last forever. We will keep everyone up to date on our travels, our upcoming shows, and any appearances we make. Follow us on Twitter for the fastest updates, and Facebook for any big announcements. We are playing new music at all our shows–a good reason to come see us this summer. Cheers!
