After many, many months of hunting, researching, listening, reading, following clever recommendations and sneaking around small venues, I compiled a list of over 100 extraordinary musicians from all over the country. Seven of those artists crept to the top of the list as the best fit for Fool’s Road. As I finalize travel arrangements and coordinate schedules with each of them, I will be updating this line-up. In the meantime, here is the tentative schedule:
August 24th—31st | New York City, Pearl & The Beard
September 4th—11th | Chicago, My My My
September 17th—24th | Fort Collins, You Me & Apollo
September 28th—October 5th | Seattle, Rose Windows
October 15th—22nd | San Francisco, Hahn
October 27th—November 3rd | Austin, Shakey Graves
Early 2013, TBA
If you happen to be familiar with any of these cities and can recommend great shooting locations, gear rental connections or just good places to sit and relax after 8 intensive days of production, let us know. Any advice is welcome.
Between the production cities, I’ll be stopping in various spots across the country to edit, rest, plan & write. Most of these places will creep onto the list along the way.
