Me and Tribe One are embarking on our inaugural Comic Store Tour! In support of my new album, The Middle of Nowhere, we are hitting the Middle US and Midwest (appropriate right?). I’ve been doing shows at Comic Stores for the past two years, and they are among some of my favorite shows to do. I get to talk about comics with comic fans, we get to have a kind of intimate, personal show, and we always finish with enough time to go have dinner or something. And the bathrooms are way nicer than a lot of venues, y’know?
I try to do this kind of thing to focus on local communities. To give fans a free or affordable (all shows are free, or at most $5 at the door) option to see a live show, without having to go to a club, bar or venue that a lot of fans may not be the most comfortable going to. To have the kind of time and environment to really talk to fans, hang out, and well, we also just like comic stores. No surprise there.
I want to bring this to every other region of the country (West Coast, East Coast, LA & FL, Mountain Region), so it’s really important that we get the word out. That stores see the value in bringing events like this to your community. It’s an uphill battle to get stores that may not already be fans or into what I do, to book shows like this. So please, help us get word out. The “info” links above are facebook events. Join them, and help us promote the shows. I promise you, we will do our best to make it all worth it.
See you guys on the road!
