WaterFinder Tour

After putting together
WaterFinder's first release, The Third Road, we hit the road and played four shows spread out comfortably over about a week and a half. Our first show was in Northampton, Massachusetts, where we played a house show along with two phenomenal musicians, Tom Kovacevic (kind of like if Roy Harper played the oud - amazing!) and Micah Blue Smaldone (beautiful avant folk); we then continued on to Portland, Maine, where we played at a wonderful new art space called Apohadion with Dark-Urrru, a magical musical collaboration including members of Big Blood and Brother Oak, and once again with Tom Kovacevic, much to our delight! We then said our fond goodbyes to our dear friends in Maine and headed westward for a couple more shows: one in Louisville, Kentucky, where we played a house show with power trio Captain Ron Today (which includes the drumming talent of another dear friend of ours, Jeff Komara) and one final show in Bloomington, Indiana, at a new venue called The Bishop where we shared a bill with two awesome locals, Drekka (electronic/folk/noise) and Os (power duo, heavy dark soundscapes). It was a great experience full of impressive, genuine displays of beautifully crafted music, and we feel fortunate to have shared the stage with so many talented folks and friends. We're back home in Pittsburgh now, creating more of what we love: music.
