John will be joining McSweeney’s contributor, author and humorist John Moe, John Munson of The New Standards and John Hodgman (expert) for the final show of MPR's WITS at the Fitzgerald Theater in Minnesota on Friday, June 18th, 8:00 p.m. If you can't make it to the show, you can watch the live video here.
Although big rock shows can convey a sense of excitement that is hard to beat, hearing music in an intimate setting may ultimately be even more exciting. The power of songs stripped to their essence. In an atmosphere that makes for storytelling. Few people master this art better than John Roderick and you can experience this first-hand at Seattle's The Triple Door this summer.
The Triple Door will host John Roderick shows on July 8th, August 14th and September 30th.

It is no secret that The Long Winters are proud members of the Seattle music scene. Therefore we are happy to help promote a show at the Crocodile Cafe, where on Wednesday May 26, veteran Seattle band The Newton Girls will play a not-to-miss gig.
The Newton Girls, previously known as The Snow Glinter, will be showcasing some new material, along with songs that have proven their strength over the years. The Long Winters are excited to attend this show, before taking off to rock Oregon and Sasquatch! Festival. Say hi if you see us!
This year's Sasquatch! festival should not be missed. The last weekend of May offers 3 days of great music at the spectacular Gorge Theater in George, WA, and on Sunday 30 May The Long Winters are set to appear.
The amazing line-up of the festival has attracted the attention of many music fans, and the festival has already sold out. But fret not, there are chances to see The Long Winters at some rather more intimate venues as well.
Because individually the band members have worked out all winter to be fit for the Sasquatch! extravaganza - but to make sure they are also up for it as a team, they will be doing some warm-up shows in Oregon. Two have been announced so far, more may be added. Check out the site's Shows page for all the details on these first band shows since the Fall of 2009!
