genders summer tour 2

We will be hitting the road for a very brief string of dates this July with Athens’ shredders New Madrid. They are excellent and we couldn’t be happier to be playing shows with them. The dates are all listed above, but if that crazy 80s font on the poster is too tough to read they are as follows:

7/24 Denver, CO @ UMS Festival (venue to be announced)

7/25 Salt Lake City, UT @ The Loading Dock

7/26 Boise, ID @ Neurolux

7/31 Seattle, WA @ Sunset Tavern

8/1 Portland, OR @ Doug Fir

Almost as soon as we get back from this mini tour we head to Jackpot! studios to record an EP to tape with Larry Crane. We can’t wait. We are all so proud of the new tunes. After that we will be back on the road for all of September. check back for those dates as they shall be announced shortly.

Until next time.

Peace, love, sand Bobby Sherman,

Genders

Home Again

We have triumphantly returned home! We are all getting used to our home lives again, day jobs, and the freezing Portland weather. Our Crystal Ballroom show opening for Alt-J was super excellent! Playing big venues all tour really prepared us for such a big crowd…Turns out over 6 weeks of playing almost every night on the road makes you play really well. Who would have thought?

Tour was more than we bargained for, good and bad! As many of you already heard, we totaled our tour van the first week of tour by hitting a deer in central Illinois. Luckily we were all completely unharmed, just shook up, confused and wondering how we were going to keep touring for 5 more weeks. We essentially had to start over on the road… a total nightmare for a bit. I had a lot of quality phone time with our insurance company, which I could have done without, but we were able to get them to extend our rental coverage to a full 30 days. Thanks to Banana Stand Media for setting up a donation page for us (immediately after hearing the news) and our friends and families being insaneeely generous–we had enough money to cover the last week of our rental vehicle. It was really humbling and heart warming to know that people back home believed in us and wanted us to keep going…so thank you all again so much.

The shows were a great success and we had so much fun with our new pals Slam Dunk and Built to Spill…we are looking forward to hanging with them again for their string of shows at The Mission Theater at the end of December.

Next up is our CD release show… TOMORROW! We are going to be playing our entire album beginning to end and having special secret musicians join us to play it as close to the recordings as possible. It’s going to be a special evening, indeed.

We have been getting great press for it here are links to what some folks around Portland had to say:

OREGONIAN
PORTLAND MERCURY
WILLAMETTE WEEK
PORTLAND DELI

ALSO: Forgot to mention that we did a Daytrotter session while on tour and now it is UP! Check it out here.

A lot has happened since I last updated….more news soon.

Frozenly yours,
M.M.M

Tour Updates

Hi again, friends. We are scrambling to prepare for tour, as of late. Pulling out our hair for the best possible reason. The album is shaping up nicely, thanks to Michael Deresh of Lamplight Studios,  and looks to be in the mastering process this coming week. WE CAN’T WAIT FOR YOU TO HEAR IT!

Still in search of a van…believe it or not, there are a LOT of wackos out there on Craigslist. We have a couple leads, though.

Booking is almost complete, an updated list of shows resides below… still in need of housing after many of the dates, so if you are willing and able to host 4 nice young(ish) people, please contact us @ genderspdx@gmail.com! We will be forever indebted to you and can probably hook you up with 1-2 guest list spots for that night’s show !

I will update soon to confirm the TBA dates!

Anxiously Yours,
M.M.M.

While this news is exciting, it leaves us with some logistics to figure out…

We need a van! Holy cow! Please consider coming out to some shows and buying some merch? Additionally, we will be getting a fundraiser show together for the end of the summer, we hope you can join us and help us make it out on the road!

Also if you live in any of the cities we will be visiting, we make great houseguests. ;)

Stay tuned!
