Field Report (nee Conrad Plymouth) SXSW and national tour… Holy Crap!

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

Howdy folks.

I hope what appears to be spring is finding all of you happy and healthy. It’s been a busy couple of months around here with a lot of musical projects going on plus a great chance to see a ton of Minnesota friends in St. Paul. Thanks to everyone who came out for the Turf Club and Battle of the Jug Band shows. It was really very fun.

So Field Report, the band I play with in Milwaukee (which used to be called Conrad Plymouth (the band, not the city)), is finally done mixing the album we recorded at April Base in Fall Creek, WI this winter. We’ll be making our debut as Field Report at South by Southwest in Austin, TX on March 15. We’ve got a number of performances at SXSW then head back home for Milwaukee. After that, we start up a national tour supporting Megafaun in Chicago on March 21. I’ll be playing with the band for all of the Midwest dates, mountain states, Pacific Northwest, and California. Here’s a full tour listing…
