Todd Slaying in Kansas City

We’re two days in and just arrived in Tulsa, OK. Our first night was spent playing some music for a very enthusiastic, though small, crowd in Madison and last night in Kansas City was a little bit of a Ghost Town. Regardless, we’ve dubbed this the No Bull Shit tour (hash tag #NoBullShitTour on Twitter) based on some words Todd said at the end of our two night weekend at the Artists Quarter in Saint Paul during which we released our second album as A Love Electric. Todd went on the mic and laid it all out there. “No Bull Shit in this band,” he said, “No Bullshit.” (more…)

With Kansas City under our belts, and a super sweet visit with Todd’s Grandmother on our way out, A Love Electric hit the road around noon to head to Columbia. Our show is KC was inspired, to say the least, and luckily we got the whole second set recorded on Greg’s Zoom. (more…)

Great stage, sound and people over there in Des Moines, IA. We had a small but enthusiastic crowd, and we got to hang out on the town with some locals after the show.

We woke up this morning, had some made to order omelets, Schutte and Clouser argued over who has the nicer skinny jeans, and then we hit the road. We’re now on our way to the storied city of jazz and blues, Kansas City. I personally feel honored to be playing this music in the city where the great Charlie Parker developed as a young jazz musician.

We hit the Record Bar tonight at 8p. We fully expect to be inspired by the ghosts that will surround us. It will be a memorable show.
