DIY Touring: Claiming tiny victories & avoiding soul crushers

pop upIt's been a strange couple years. Since moving back from Vietnam & hitting the road permanently, I've had my van stolen in Detroit, puked on myself + shit my pants all while driving a rental car around the world in lonely isolation. But it hasn't been all a bummer fest. During these tours I've hung out with countless local legends, played over 500 quality shows and met a few of my musical heroes including Butch Vig, Jeff Tweedy, Chuck Ragan, & Sean Bonnette of Andrew Jackson Jihad. On 7 May in Amsterdam, I'll tell the tales and help fellow musicians avoid the darker side of touring at PopUp Music Conference.ragantweeedy4
