The Road to BFD 2013


We get paid to look at our own band name floating above our heads.

Good morning, Internet people.

RB here, bringing you the good word from the PA universe. As you may know, we’ll be performing at Live 105’s BFD 2013 on May 19, so we’re filling up the calendar for May leading up to the day with shows across California.

After many requests on social media, we are finally returning to San Luis Obispo on May 2. We’re supporting Briertone at SLO Brew with Fialta, and the notoriously groovy GoldBoot. 7:30pm show time/all ages. 

You can purchase $10 advance tickets here or pay $12 at the door.

We’ll be stopping by Boo Boo Records to do some record shopping before the show, so check our Twitter updates for the time and come hang out with us! 

The next night on May 3 we head back to Kuppajoe in Fresno. GoldBoot will be coming with us to this gig in case you miss the SLO show. More bands to be announced. 7:30pm show time/all ages. More information can be found here. 

We finish the weekend on May 4 with a show at AMPLYFi in Hollywood. We’re supporting The Brobecks, with Wetwood Smokes also on the bill. 5:30pm doors, 6pm set time/all ages. Venue information can be found here. 

This show is already sold out, but we do have a limited number of tickets available for Picture Atlantic fans. Send us an email with the subject line “Hollywood” for more information on how to purchase tickets. 

We were honored to be asked to perform at Popscene on May 9 with the brehs Finish Ticket and Little Daylight from Brooklyn. This show is 18+, starts at 9:00pm and $10 tickets are only available at the door. Come dance to as many tracks as I can convince Aaron Axelsen to spin in between incredible live sets.

On May 10 we return to Santa Cruz at The Crepe Place to support The Huxtables. Kepi Ghoulie are also performing. 9pm show. Venue information can be found here. 

May 18, the night before BFD, we finish up the run at Trinity Gold Media Studios in Napa. The lineup is TBA but we’ll update you shortly. 7:30pm/all ages. Directions and venue info can be found here. 

Finally, on May 19, we will be performing at Live 105’s BFD 2013 at Shoreline Ampitheater in Mountain View. The day begins at 11am. We perform on the local stage around 4pm, official set time pending.

The lineup includes DJ Shadow, Crystal Method, Rin Tin Tiger, Finish Ticket, Tumbleweed Wanderers, Passion Pit, Of Monsters and Men, Silversun Pickups and many more. 

Tickets can be found here, but check Live for info on how to win a pair. 

I’m incredibly excited for BFD 2013 and I’ll be posting an entire update about the show next week.


So there you have it. All of our May dates thus far. We will most likely be adding additional shows to this tour, so if you live in a city we aren’t playing and want to see us, send us a tweet, email, Facebook comment or come to my house and tell me in person. I’ll wear a suit and we can discuss Sean E’s hair.
