Finn Riggins Summer Tour (in progress)

Posted By on Tue, Jul 6, 2010 at 11:45 PM

although we've technically been home from "tour" since May 15th, some of you may have noticed that we've been keeping plenty busy still on weekends around the region... tis the nature of our summer tour... a little more home mixed in the middle of it all, but still lots of time on the road... which is awesome, on both fronts... and it's been a blast being back running around the West.

took a little break from reporting about our recent adventures, but thought i'd drop in as we just got back from a really really fun weekend down to the Bay Area to celebrate some freedom at the 5th Annual El Rio Big Time Freedom Fest in San Francisco... which was epic once again. this year we played with Sands feat. Neil John Thompson of Low Red Land as well as our new friends Slow Trucks. show kicked off with an incredible set from fellow Boisean WITH CHILD. we were blessed with Elijah's presence on this whole trip. it was a blast having him along. he's a huge inspiration. i don't have a lot of photos from this trip, but i do have some from our blissful day at the beach near Fort Funston in San Francisco. it lived up to it's name.
