LoveBomb Go-Go Marching Band of Portland is about to head out on their first full-length tour! As of this post, weve already begun the big Adven-chaaah. Nebuchadnezzar is going south for two full days of driving to our first venue, The CIA (California Institute of Abnormarts), where we perform on Saturday night, March 21st.
From there we head due west to Tempe, Arizona, where we’ll rock two street sets for that city’s Live Music initiative—one in the Mill Creek district and one at Arizona State University.
On Monday, the 23rd, we are performing in the heart of Albuquerque’s Old Town, in the historic Plaza beginning at 5:00 PM. That’s just a precursor to our other New Mexico gigs, which happen on the return trip!
Next we are NOLA-bound for two shows: on the 25th at the newly re-opened Mag’s 940 and on the 26th at the Allways Lounge, along with local band, Panorama Jazz Band of New Orleans—both in the Merigny district.
And then it’s back east and through the grand state of Texas to Austin. Austin’s motto should sound familiar to our friends in our hometown of Portland. It’s “Keep Austin Weird!” Yeah, we think we’re gonna like it there.
And another reason to love Austin is Honk!TX! We’ll be surrounded by marching bands and community street bands from all over the country, and even as far away as England! This year marks the festivals first overseas performers, Perhaps Contraption, from London!
Next is Galveston, Texas, where we will play at Drunken Monkeyz for a fabulous Sunday Funday Bash on March 29th!
Then we're back in New Mexico on March 31st! We start out in Santa Fe at The Candyman, where we'll do a live outdoor show with Santa Fe band, Partizani. Then we head to Albuquerque for a big show, again with Partizani, at the historic El Rey Theater.
Gigs are still being added to our schedule, so stay posted for updates on our Shows page.
We are counting on all of you to tell your friends in our tour cities all about LoveBomb Go-Go so that they can come and watch us play!
