Loch Lomond Tour Diary: Hot Sauce and Laundry in Germany

Loch Lomond in Germany

words by Dave Depper


Ah, Germany. My favorite country in Europe. A bustling, thoroughly modern, blindingly precise land full of beautiful landscape, friendly people, and great food. And of course, the Autobahn, where you can drive just as fast as your little heart desires.

Our first show here was at a club called Cafe Steinbruch, in Duisberg, a pleasant town in the mi...   More

Almost everything is bigger in California.

We pulled into Santa Barbara to play the Mercury Lounge.  Think Regal Beagle of Three's Company fame.

Loch Lomond Tour Diary: SWEET THUNDER! (Bellingham, WA to Seattle, WA)


Two shows in, and it’s already clear how rocking this new lineup is. MusicfestNW was the perfect way to build up momentum for our two-week West Coast tour. Recording with Larry Crane at the Ace Hotel and playing our T.L.E. show at Rontoms sparked a good fire to light our way. Unfortunately, Jade couldn’t come out on our little jaunt, so we’re like a three-legged dog pulling some new tricks. ...   More
