Shows, playing them

to get warmed up for what will surely be an onslaught of live appearances after the release of the new Be Still Please album we're happy to report a few pre-release live dates, and even happier to report that we're opening for the incomparable M.Ward on these shows. Portastatic will be a duo for these, with myself and Margaret White making all the noise:

Sept 18 Charlottesville VA, Satellite Ballroom
w/ M.Ward
Sept 19 Carrboro NC, Cat's Cradle
w/ M. Ward & Lambchop (!! "strong triple bill" as JJ Jackson use to say)
Sept 20 Nashville TN, The Belcourt Theatre
w/ M. Ward
Sept 22 Denton TX, Hailey's
w/ M. Ward
Sept 23 Austin TX, The Parish Room
w/ M. Ward

this trip includes one town i've never personally seen, Denton, TX, and a couple of my favorite venues to play (the Cradle, and The Parish Room). The Belcourt sounds too classy for our types, and i have no idea what Charlottesville will be like if it doesn't involve sushi.

see you there!
