Tumbledown’s two-dozen-show, monthlong tour to and from the South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin Texas came to a close this week as the band returned to Bremerton March 31.

We catch up on the 900-some-mile drive across the desert from San Antonio to Arizona and the band’s West Coast conquests in their latest and last NXSW Tour Diary. And the band will be catching up with everyone at a homecoming show w/ The New Old Stock and Handlebar Mustangs at 9 p.m. April 2 @ Winterland, 1220 Sylvan Way in Bremerton. The show is 21+, $5 cover.

Then next week, Tumbledown tumbles back onto the road for another North By Southwest Tour — this time for their first few shows south of the border, April 7-17.

Mike Herrera’s Tumbledown — the Bremerton-based pop-punkabilly/country western-y side project of the bassist and lead singer of MxPx — is winging it’s way through the American midwest, onto the Lone Star State, across the desert and back up the West Coast on a month-long tour to-and-from the South By Southwest music mecca in Austin, Texas this month.

We feature Tumbledown in our latest print edition, dedicated to The Touring Musician — [see that here] — and we’ll be following the band vicariously through a short series of gonzo tour diaries, photos and ephemera in Tumbledown’s NXSW Tour Diaries.

Meet one of the most impressive bands from the Kitsap Peninsula: The New Old Stock.

You might not be able to tell from that picture above. Drummer Harley Trotland says it doesn’t quite do the band’s face rippin’ blues justice. Not quite “go-getting enough,” he said.

And he’s right. See them live (maybe tonight, 9 p.m. Jan. 30 @ The Hi-Fideltity Lounge, 2711 Sixth St. in Bremerton) and you’ll know what he’s talking about. Continue reading
