Toronto & Burlington sound doable, I'll see what's what.

I'm still hoping for New England/Tri-State dates, though!

Sorry Sara, nothing going on in your neighbourhood. :(
Contact your local venues/booking agency's and tell them about us, otherwise they will never know.
It's people like you that get us gigs :)

Sara said...

I've done all that and more.

Actually, if any gigs in Montreal pop up, that I might consider!

Keep us posted!
