We weren't able to make SXSW this year so we participated in CXCW (Couch by Couchwest) where "the beer is cheaper and the only hipster is you." Musicians, bands, and carousers alike submit videos as part of an online music festival featuring acts from all over the country. Musicians are encouraged to show themselves playing anywhere but on a stage. So, we found our way to a rooftop in Boulder, CO just as the sun was setting behind those stately flatirons. Here is our brand new tune "Medicine".
We are beyond fired up to be heading to Kansas City today for the 26th annual Folk Alliance International. There are so many great friends to catch up with, so many new friends to make, and so much music to be made over the next five days. Amazing artists will be flowing into Kansas City from around the country and around the world and we are honored to count ourselves among them.
Monocle Band will be performing as a trio in KC (Monica, Bill, & Ben) and, as you can see here, we've got a weekend chock full of private showcases in front of us. These rooms are will absolutely be going off with amazing sounds all weekend. Come hang and pick if you're in Kansas City!
If you haven't heard of Folk Alliance, it's really a great organization. These folks are doing the good work of keeping roots music vibrant in the 21st century. Check 'em out here!
Every picture tells a story. We are filled with gratitude for the opportunities we had, the people we met, the friends we made and the time spent doing what we love! Here's to 2013!
