Dirty Revival at Treefort Music Fest 2017

We are thrilled to be part of the first round of artists announced for Treefort Music Fest 2017! 

Known for their support of independent artists around the Northwest Treefort has been a band goal for a couple years now. Not just because of the local exposure bands get from playing these more intimate festivals, but because the community, the music, the positive vibe and the general good feelings associated with this particular event are directly in line with what Dirty Revival wants to do. We want to make friends, we want to make music and play it for our friends and we want to surround ourselves with good people and make special moments to remember forever. Treefort, you're our huckleberry... rolls right off the tongue. 

 

COLD, DIRTY WINTER PART ONE: THE WEST

We have secured the final dates for our December tour and I can already feel the anticipation beginning to rise.  This is cathartic for many reasons, but mostly, California has proven to be a magical place for us.  It could be the sun, the food, the beautiful people (yeah, we see you), the summer festivals (Oh the festivals!!) but in reflecting on those individual things, it feels as though I'm missing something.  

It's impossible to capture the reflection of the sky in Lake Tahoe as the sun slips behind the mountains. I don't think I can explain how the stars look, hovering over the tops of the pine trees, or how the fog gently hugs the coastline and bridge foundations, sliding over the hills until it eventually covers everything until only the shining peaks of buildings show.  How do you pay tribute to the kind hearts and amazing personalities we have encountered? How do you celebrate the diversity, the inclusion, the sense of family that so many are willing to provide? And how are you supposed to discuss any of it without sounding like a pot smoking tree hugger? Whatever, call me a tree hugger.  I'll take it. As many of us were not so gently reminded last week, there are far worse things to be.  Jokes aside and considering what is happening in this country right now, I keep remembering all the wonderful people I encountered and all the love I felt and I am comforted in my belief that the world is basically good. 

Needless to say, California, we miss you.  We could use dose of your 'goodness' and in exchange we promise to bring that sweet, hot, melodic fire we have been perfecting since we've last seen you. 

Deal? Word. 

LET'S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS! (to defeat the huns...sorry I can't help it) 

We will be arriving in San Francisco with a day to kill (that loosely translates to 'get in some solid hang time with our buds in Midtown Social and Smoked Out Soul) before we hit the Elbo Room on Thursday with Baby and the Luvies. We have been extremely fortunate to work with some great San Francisco acts (see above), this group is no exception. Wow.

Friday we head to Grass Valley Center for the arts to link up with  Joy And Madness.  I'm not sure I can adequately express how excited I am for this. A Joyous Revival, indeed! We connected at Worldfest and we were brought together again at Guitarfish, sparks flew. Some things just pair nicely together, this is one of those times.  I am so looking forward to playing with this excellent group of people. 

These guys make me smile a lot :) 

Saturday sees us in Healdsburg, back at Bergamot Alley. They have all the wine! We have all the music! These things seem to go hand and hand. 

Sunday we hop over to Reno to play The Saint, and although it isn't quite confirmed, I have high hopes of at least one of our buds from The Sextones. We shall see!  Monday we swing by the Mt. Shasta Vets Club, they live stream their shows! Tune in and see how we do out there on the road. 

Next up, Wednesday the 14th, we will head down to Chico, a place where I, apparently, get into all of the trouble. Maybe I will tell you about it someday as long as "you" aren't my mother. Anyways, we are stoked to be playing The Big Room at Sierra Nevada. I've heard great things about this venue! Thursday we head to Redding to play The Dip, it's a free show so NO EXCUSES :) 

Friday we reconnect with Joy and Madness at Harlow's. This is our second to last show on this run, forecast shows a high chance of PARTAY with a high chance of RAGING. I'm just the messenger.  

Saturday we end our run at the Crystal Bay Club, if you are around to see the Gift of Gab the night before, stick around for another day! 

Have I mentioned that we are freaking excited? Tell your friends to tell their friends. 

Evvnflo Wins Music Expo SF Remix Contest

We couldn't be more proud of our guitarist, MC, main dude and major goofball Evan (evvnflo) Simko for taking home first place in the Music Expo SF remix contest, reimagining funky soul band Con Brio's smooth track 'No Limits'.  The track showcases evvnflo's production capabilities as well as featuring prolific PDX MC Elton Cray. Listen to the track and tell us what you think!
