“Wow. Chicago was fantastic. After a leisurely dinner at Revolution Brewery with Stacy and Wiebe, it was decided that we would play Wiebe’s living room. Perfect. Stace made a few phone calls, those friends made a few calls and boosh, an audience. They were privy to a bit of history. Weedghost play two songs? Last night we did. Thanks to Stace and Brian for hooking us up, thanks to Zach for coming down and thanks to all who showed up. We had a blast! Off to Sheboygan!”

Regarding Sunday night’s set at The Shire in Yellow Springs Weedghost says “Awesome set in the barn. Some bluegrass, courtesy of Blue Moon Soup. Beers, dogs eating the shit out of any moth they can catch, beers…and we sold $20 worth of merch. True to form, a couple bunch of beers in, I gave away another $30 worth of stuff. Modelo in a can could solve some of the worlds problems….”
More photos and updates after the break! Show at Wiebe’s house tonight, Chicago! Continue reading “Weedghost Tour Update: Yellow Springs to Chicago”
We plan to continue to update the site with the on-the-road exploits of Weedghost as they trek across the upper Midwest. The boys should be on right about now at The Shire in Yellow Springs and then its off to Chicago. Andrew sent along the following communication:
“The trunk is packed, the obscene amount of merch is (almost) done and it’s off to the Shire in Yellow Springs for the second show of tour. Weedghost uber-fan Randy is joining us tonight, all but assuring good times. Beer stop!”
“The Shire is awesome. Tucked away outside of Yellow Springs, it’s like driving into another world. A calm, relaxing 18 pack of Modelo in cans world. We’re on in about an hour. Tonight’s the night, the official Weedghost 2010 tour riff gets busted out. Bet you’re glad you’re not here, huh?”
Stay tuned for more…
Weedghost and Aquabear go way back, well all the way back actually. These guys played our first showcase at The Wire in 2005 and have played every Aquabear County Fair and numerous other shows, comps and everything else over the years. They are launching an “awesome six day, three show disc golf journey across the flat, shitty paved roads of the Midwest.” according to Andrew Lampela. And they’ll be providing Aquabear with all sorts of pictures, writings, text messages, postcards, carrier pigeons, and more. Check back for updates as they head to Yellow Springs, Chicago, and Sheboygan! After the break below is the first one… and if you are in Southwest Ohio you can see Weedghost play in Yellow Springs at the most wonderful Shire.
