UPDATE #2: Bad news everyone. The weather tomorrow is looking iffy once again so we've cancelled the free set & signing down in Brooklyn tomorrow. We're going to try to find another time to do it when we don't have to worry about snow storms and blizzards. Thank you to everyone who spread the word and planned on attending.

UPDATE: The Monday February 2nd set & signing at Rough Trade NYC has been moved to Monday February 9th on account of the weather. 

Chad will be kicking off The Horse Comanche release week in Brooklyn, NY on Monday February 2nd with a free performance and signing at Rough Trade NYC. It's open to all ages, kicks off at 6:30PM and everyone who purchases a copy of The Horse Comanche at the show will get a free silk screened poster (while supplies last).

Then it's up to Portsmouth, NH on Friday February 6th for an in-store set and signing at Bull Moose. Bull Moose will also have limited edition screened posters (while supplies last).

New Tour & More

Thanks so much for coming to the fall 2014 tour dates! The van reached 250K miles and I'd never seen the onboard thermometer get as low as it was when we left the stuffed (but somehow real) horse Comanche, in Kansas and headed to Colorado. It got to negative 19 while recording the album in Chicago last winter, but we topped that as we left Lawrence for Boulder.

Now we're gearing up for the late winter tour by prepping a couple new songs and hoping that Willie doesn't get injured in the New Hampshire pond hockey tournament. Tickets for these shows are on sale now:

February 24 - Providence, RI @ The Met (Tickets | Info)
February 25 - Portland, ME @ Port City (Tickets | Info)
February 26 - Burlington, VT @ Higher Ground (Tickets | Info)
February 27 - Rochester, NY @ Water Street (Tickets | Info)
February 28 - Toronto, ON @ Lee’s Palace (Tickets | Info)
March 1 - Cleveland, OH @ Beachland Ballroom (Tickets | Info)
March 3 - Columbus, OH @ The Basement (Tickets | Info)
March 4 - Cincinnati, OH @ 20th Century Theatre (Tickets | Info)
March 5 - Nashville, TN @ 3rd & Lindsley (Tickets | Info)
March 6 - Atlanta, GA @ Vinyl (Tickets | Info)
March 7 - Carroboro, NC @ Cat's Cradle Back Room (Tickets | Info)

I'll also be returning to the House of Blues in Boston on January 31st to play a solo set opening for Dr. Dog. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Most of the shows are in cities that I visited on the living room tour so I've been reminiscing about those nights and all the people who welcomed me in like a member of the family - thanks for that!

On a sad note, I just heard the crushing news that my Zimbabwean friend Elias's son died yesterday. Manuel, I'm so sorry you're gone. You were such a kind soul.

I was glad to see the solidarity in Paris the other day -- I hope for less pain in the world or less violence that causes the pain and that we all try to understand one another.

See you soon - peace and justice,
