Hit The Road, Wasp!

24 Feb

To quote great Australian songwriter Don Walker, “I measure my position to the obstacles we crossed, the territory covered and the parties that we lost. Those were the days.”

Here is a small selection of photos from 10 different countries and 5 different tours, both solo and with Sean M. Whelan & The Mime Set, Water Music, Remarkable Shipwrecks and Lady Danger.

I think the photos show that, more than the shows themselves, touring is about the people you’re with, the fun you make and the amount of crap you have to carry.

Tour Booking – Grrrr

7 Mar

Ah, tour booking! Tedium. Begging. A necessary evil. It’s what most self-managed musicians bitch about the most.

So, one of the dates on the Water Music/Wasp Summer Summer Tour (summer summer? noo….) has been moved. Now I have to re-contact venues in two countries and shift the other dates I’m asking for. It also puts out the band we’re playing with as I’m booking them shows in Germany and they have to get the time off to play.

On the bright side, I still have the gig. That’s awesome. It’s going to be fun, and it gives me an extra week’s leeway in booking. More time to pick up the phone and send identical emails (making sure I change the venue name each time…). Now I need to find gigs for the suddenly empty week. where shall we go? Finland?
