Oh, Johnathan Rice. It isn’t enough that you’re Jenny Lewis’ doe-eyed boyfriend, she helped you make your 2nd record 3 times better than your first, or you inexplicably got the gig as Roy Orbison in Walk the Line. Now you have to go touring my hood with former Beachwood Sparks member and current competent + producer Farmer Dave Scher on what is so obviously a NorCal burn cruise with Vetiver’s Andy Cabic in tow.
Laurel Canyon got boring, no? If weed and Rilo Kiley didn’t give me anxiety attacks, I’d be jealous, but guess what? I’m not! Okay, just a little…
Rice, Scher, Andy Cabic (Vetiver), and Jonathan Wilson launched their Emerald Triangle Tour tonight in Santa Barbara and they have four more gigs to go before their bowls are totes cashed. Here are the rest of their dates “in celebration and support of California’s burgeoning Green Rush and Fall Harvest, and hoping to provide a once in a blue moon musical experience for friends and fans alike.”
Nov. 2 – The Independent – SF, CA
Nov. 4 – Nevada Theater – Nevada City, CA
Nov. 6 – MPP Fundraiser – Sonoma, CA
Nov. 7 – Caspar Inn – Caspar/Mendocino, CA
Yeah, there’s nothing like a Marijuana Policy Project fundraiser with “friends and fans alike” to wash those worries away. After all, Dylan-esque press conferences with porn stars can be very stressful.
