It’s a been a while! A lot has happened. Slo-Mo was even called a “cult hero” in Rolling Stone. I kid you not: Read the Roger Harvey entry. To be sure, I’m not sure this “cult” status is based on his fine musicianship … or something more sinister! You decide.
Anyway, John Train plays its first gig since the pandemic on Friday, July 2nd at Sunflower Park which is located at 1725 N. 5th Street in North Philly. Doors at 6PM. Show: 7-9PM. Two sets. I’ve been down to this spot to see a show. It’s lovely. There is limited seating which will be on a first come first serve basis. It is suggested that you bring a blanket – if you do not get one of the picnic table seats, there is ample space to spread out, have a picnic, and enjoy your favorite folk-rock band (that’s us!). Admission is $10, part of which goes to Sunflower and its community programming.
If you hadn’t heard, our dear friend and former Fergie’s bartender Niall Murphy opened a bar called Sutton’s which is right across the street from Sunflower. They have great food and beverages. You could even bring take-out from there to the park. Check ‘em out!
Finally, John Train has been working on a new record called Cowboy Dreams: John Train “Live” at Belmont Stables. We’ve got a little preview of it over at our Bandcamp page.
