POZ Road Blog: Sundials (Update I)

Sundials are out on tour with The Sidekicks and Dowsing. We have the band set for a new PropertyOfZack Road Blog feature. Read their first update below!

The Sidekicks US Headlining Tour With Sundials, Dowsing

Hello, beautiful people of the internet.
 
Carl from Sundials here. We’re currently somewhere in eastern Oregon on the way from Boise to Seattle, where the west coast portion of our tour with The Sidekicks and Dowsing will begin. Let’s get you all up to date on the goings-on so far:
 
Day One: Lansing MI 
Last Wednesday, Cory and I flew from Richmond to Columbus. Steve from The Sidekicks picked us up and gave us a place to stay. The next morning we had some coffee and breakfast and sauntered over to Shout Out Loud Prints to collect t-shirts for the tour and load The Sidekicks gear. Once we were all loaded up we hit the road for Mac’s Bar in Lansing, where we met Dowsing (who had Harris, our guitar player, in tow) for the first show.
 
Little American Champ opened the show and then we all did our thing. Danielle, who is on tour with The Sidekicks, turned 25 at midnight. To celebrate I shot a bow and arrow at a watermelon and Harris sliced one in half with a broadsword. Happy birthday, Danielle. After we’d had our fill of medieval weaponry and cheap beer, we packed up our things and rode to Chicago with Dowsing.
 
Day Two: Chicago, IL
We woke up bright and early to get in line for Chicago’s most legendary sausage shop, Hot Doug’s. If you’ve never enjoyed a Chicago-style dog at 10:30 AM, you just don’t know what you’re missing.
 
Our show that night was at The Township. We played with two other fantastic touring bands: All Dogs and Baby Ghosts. They were both amazing and really helped make this a special evening. We were even surprised by a visit from our old friend Sam North, who released our first album on CD through his label, Traffic Street Records. Sam gave a shit about our band from the start, and it was a real treat to get to catch up with him.

How you know Frameworks stayed at your place: four empty pizza boxes, two empty cases of beer, greasy GameCube controllers and a dang sword on my living room floor. <3

Here&#8217;s a reminder for anyone who missed it:
When we started this label we never imagined that we&#8217;d be one day announcing our own &#8220;label&#8221; tour. At the end of the day, it&#8217;s just a tour (albeit a really good one), but yeah, it feels nice to say. With that said, this fall will see our ~first ever~ Topshelf Records tour featuring A Great Big Pile of Leaves, Diamond Youth, Prawn &amp; Field Mouse. Dates and info are below (click any date for tickets):
09.16.2014 - The Barbary, Philadelphia, PA
09.17.2014 - Metro Gallery, Baltimore, MD
09.19.2014 - The Backbooth, Orlando, FL
09.20.2014 - Epic Problem, Tampa, FL
09.21.2014 - The Masquerade, Atlanta, GA
09.23.2014 - The End, Nashville, TN
09.24.2014 - The Firebird, St. Louios, MO
09.26.2014 - Beat Kitchen, Chicago, IL
09.27.2014 - Pike Room, Pontiac, MI
09.28.2014 - The Smiling Moose, Pittsburgh, PA
