Juniper Rising Tour Diary: Swirling Whirling SXSW Energy

After our set at Trailer Space Records, Diana and I took a walk and lay down in the grass on the edge of a graveyard to soak up sun and decompress.

While talking, we saw the two beautiful girls of BirdCloud, from Nashville, walking by with  their instruments. (Wow I love that band!) I hollered to them and they said they were walking to their next gig, which I excitedly went to. They were amazing live! I felt so lucky to have seen them. Swirling whirling energies of Southby made it happen.

Juniper Rising Tour Diary: AUSTIN!!! SXSW

Rolled up to Trailer Space Records to many friendly Burger Records faces. We caught a great Visions and Enjoy set before us. Super fun playing in the record store, continued to hang and meet more rad bands!

Austin was all we expected and more! We soaked up some much needed sunshine and musical community love :)

Juniper Rising Tour Diary: Tulsa!

We arrived at the SoundPony in Tulsa which is the coolest! They had great hot dogs and tons of cycling ephemera lining the walls, and Ms. Pacman! The show was opened by Swimming who were awesome! They are our new band-friends and were a blast to meet and hang out with. One of the bartenders at the venue was kind enough to offer his home for us to stay at that which we nicknamed Tulsa Palace. Thanks Nick! We slept like babies and got cleaned up so we’d look presentable the next day for our ride to Texas :)

Juniper Rising Tour Diary: Nashville Vignette

While rain pattered softly on the ground outside the Coyote Ranch house show in Nashville, the night was agreeably warm and a group of us were huddled under the wooden porch between sets. Present was the lovely musician Kelly Anderson with T. Rust, swaying on a porch swing, the hospitable and awesome Mac J who booked the show, his Dirty Dreams bandmate Reed who felt like an old friend, and the four of us from Juniper Rising.

Ducking the rain under that porch while chatting and smoking with those good folks of Nashville… well, I’ve never felt so cool :)

Juniper Rising Tour Diary: Pensive Tour Moment

Drifting into a nap in back of the van while riding through Smoky Mountains. Late afternoon sun is low and intense, flashing between mountain shadows and warming my face. Hear the murmur of Andrew and Ben chatting in the front, Diana gazing out the window. How lovely a moment :)

Juniper Rising Tour Diary: Greensboro, North Carolina

Yesterday we played Greensboro, North Carolina which was extra special for two reasons. Holly is from NC and the show was being thrown by her childhood friend whose band “R Father” also played! The other bands playing were “the Critters” ( heavy power pop), and the “Drag Sounds” ( garage vibes).

The show was in the dining room of HellRaiser Haus, whose name is a little deceiving because it is a beautiful big house with fireplace, wonderful couches, and three adorable dogs. We felt like teenagers crashing a parents house.

We are headed to Nashville now which we are super excited for and are playing another house show at “Coyote Ranch”!

Driving into warmer and warmer weather. Woohoo!
