Well we have just finished the tour! Sorry I haven’t written more, but things got hectic with a couple of medical emergencies, one of which landed our backline technician, Mark Dyde, in the hospital in Rome. He is doing well though and now is back home.
High points of this tour included opening for Bob Dylan (again!) in Finland and sharing a bill with Joan As Police Woman and Cat Power in Rome! That night was a lot of fun, as you can see here! It was also great adding Doug Yowell to the bill.
