Points North Live Dates!

September 16, 2012
19 Broadway
Broadway Boulevard
Fairfax, CA
9 PM

Late breaking news! Some of you might know that our good friends the Travis Larson Band have been touring with our Magna Carta label mate and ridiculously good guitarist Dave Martone - who you might have seen, say, opening for Joe Satriani, or heard on Joe's record, or in Guitar Player Magazine, or...oh hell, his web site speaks for itself, here's links for both of them:

Anyway, we really wanted to see if we could play a show with them while they were in the neighborhood, and we just worked something out - on Sunday 9/16, we'll be putting on a FREE show at 19 Broadway in Fairfax. We haven't played the North Bay in a while either, so we're really excited. The show starts at 9 PM SHARP with a set from Dave, followed IMMEDIATELY by us, and then Travis Larson, and we'll close with a bit of musical mayhem at the end of the night!

We do know it's a Sunday, but we hope you'll all be as excited as we are about the lineup and brave the late hour on a school night...hope to see everyone there!

With thanks to Mike Beard and Man Down Productions, we'll be headed down to San Jose as direct support (once again) for the legendary Michael Schenker Group.

Michael is featuring Robin MacAuley on vocals, and if you saw the last tour you know it's the best MSG lineup and set in quite some time.

And opening the show will be our friends from Spiralarms, who are supporting their great new record.
