RM Tour Diary #238: No place like Kansas!
Howdy Redheads, Red Molly is fresh off a lovely Kansas weekend. Normally 105 degrees with 2000% humidity, the weather was lovely this weekend being only in the mid-90's, and thus we return home happy as clams.
Friday's show in Newton was at a larger venue this year- the Fox Theater, an old movie theater downtown. We had a nearly sold-out show and fans were feisty and appreciative. We like that. Saturday we headed to Garden City for our fourth appearance at the Tumbleweed Festival. Two days of turkey legs, dinosaur skeletons and actual monkeys wooping at our show... it's fun to play a festival at a zoo
Russ Tidwell has done a great job of carrying on this festival after founder Willis Pracht. We met up with out buddy John McCutcheon - whose performances transport - and asked him if he'd kindly dump a bucket of ice on Red Molly in the name of ALS research. We didn't have to ask him twice!
Catch us next in Boston, CT and NY.
Molly, Abbie & Laurie
