Hi from Valerie Kuehne and the Wasps Nests tour day 4 of 28. I’m sitting in the beautiful house of the curator of this evening’s show in Kansas City, on my first day ever in this city. Our tour from New York to Tijuana and back has gotten off to a great start – check out the full itinerary at right and read on for more.
First off, if you live in Wichita, Oklahoma City, Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, El Paso, Tucson, Phoenix, San Diego, Tijuana, LA, Oakland, Bakersfield, Las Vegas, Flagstaff, Albuquerque, Denver, Omaha, Des Moines, Chicago, Toledo, Pittsburgh, or Brooklyn, we are headed your way, so please check details on the shows page!
Second, some things on the tour I’m particularly excited about: I’m stoked that we’ll be playing a show every day we’re on the road! I’m looking forward to smashing a Trump piñata tomorrow on Inauguration Day at our show in Wichita. I’m looking forward to playing for the second year in a row on the 10-hour Oh My Ears music marathon in Phoenix. It’s my first time playing in Kansas City, Wichita, Oklahoma City, San Antonio, El Paso, Bakersfield, Las Vegas, Albuquerque, Denver, Omaha, or Des Moines, or for that matter anywhere in the states of Kansas, Nebraska, and Iowa, so that’s cool. I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of old friends! And finally, I booked the majority of these shows myself, so I’m excited about meeting all the people I’ve been talking to for months but haven’t met yet!
That’s all for now, it’s time to sleep! Big day in Wichita tomorrow. Keep an eye out down the line for another show with Bill Steely at Rockwood Music Hall in New York and a new project with thingNY at Harvestworks – more on that soon.
