UK Pics, Finnish Tour TBA

First and foremost, the opening of the Illegaard live music season on October 11th was a blast - thanks to all who attended!

The first show of Roundabout's January 2013 Finnish tour has been announced: Wednesday, January 23rd @ Shipyard Club (Nosturi) in Helsinki, with MOduo. More dates and band combinations TBA soon!

Here's three pics from the Sept. 27th show @ Liverpool's legendary Lomax club, where bands like Radiohead, Muse, Oasis and Coldplay used to play - photos by Frank Hedges:


And here's a few from the Roots & Fusion session at Quarry Bank Mill - photos by Jason Powell:


Last but not least, the "Electric Dixieland" EP is #17 on the French Blues Radios' airplay chart - that takes quite a few spins, so merci beaucoup! :)
