Spherical Productions Summer News!!!

West 100 tour for SP

Hello Folks,

Spherical Productions has been really busy as of lately, and I thought I would give you
all a heads up on some of the tours coming up, and other news, so here it is…

First off, I want you all to know that Kirby got an audition for the TV show ‘The Voice’,
and so he will be in New York between July 20-25, hoping to get himself a slot on this
prime time TV show in the Fall .. good luck Kirby!!!

I am proud to say since 2002, Spherical Productions has booked 100 tours, and who
better than for the longest running artist on SP, Wax Mannequin, as part of his up-
coming Annual Western Canadian Tour … also, Wax and CA Smith both got accepted
to perform at Supercrawl on Sept 14/15, so that is also AWESOME!!

Blind Mule has just finished their debut self/titled EP, and are touring for 10 days
to the Brandon Folk Festival and back, doing a soft launch of this EP on tour, with
a limited edition of 100 copies available, and they have just launched their official
website for the first time, and here it is, so check it out .. www.blindmule.ca

Spherical has always been about tours in the summer, and this summer, SP has
selectively freelanced out 2 tours for 2 great artists, they are Jenny Omnichord
(Weewerk) and Terra Lightfoot (Sonic Unyon), and for the fall, SP is also working
on a tour for The Donefors … and gonna be working together with a great jamband
called Must Stash Hat for some shows in the fall..

NLFB pic

Hey folks,

After working with Paul Loewenberg, the AD at the Northern Lights
Festival Boreal and booker at the Townehouse in Sudbury for many
years, and becoming friends along the way, didn’t mean it was easy
to get Lindy into the NLFB festival .. but after Paul checked him out
at the OCFF this past October, and 4 years of SP pushing Lindy on Paul,
he was convinced that Lindy should perform at the NLFB 2012 from July
6-8, 2012, so remember, persistence and hard work is the key to success.

that Wax Mannequin and Corwin Fox have now been confirmed to play the
3rd annual Mom Festival this summer from Aug 24-26, 2012.
