ERIN TOBEY & FULL SUN on Southeast/East Coast tour this week!

If you live between the Gulf Of Mexico and New England, go see Erin Tobey and Full Sun on tour from May 16-25!

Erin Tobey is one of my favorite songwriters in underground music, in addition to being an amazing visual artist and one of my favorite human beings. Over the years she's been a part of Abe Froman, Mt. Gigantic, Pink Razors, Fat Shadow, and sometimes Tammar. She'll have a series of new screenprints available on tour, and is recording a much-anticipated second solo album this year.

Full Sun is the solo endeavor of Jeff Grant (also of The Sands, Fat Shadow, Pink Razors, and Stop It!!), and will be touring as a two-people-and-a-hologram band-- not to be missed! He's got a new cassette and a brand-new 7" for this tour.
