Wishing everyone peace and love this time of year… our world surely needs more of both right now. The Rivergods won’t be doing our annual holiday show this year, but for good reason… we are busy prepping some new music for 2015! January will bring a brand new Good Sponge Sampler, which we’ll have a track on, and there will be more music from us sometime after! It’s all in progress — more on all of it as it evolves — as always, though, you can find the latest Rivergods’ news, photos, etc. on our Facebook page.
Happy New Year, and we’ll see you in 2015!
Thanksgiving Eve (Wednesday, Nov. 26) we’ll be back at one of New London’s best-established watering holes, The Bulkeley House. Your friends coming home for the holidays? Join us upstairs. 8pm, no cover… alright! More info here.
We had another great show at the Old Orchard Farm Barn on Saturday, Oct. 11. Thanks to everyone who came out… it was a rockin’ full house! In case you missed it, here’s a few videos from the night:
‘Chasing Manhattan (Live 10/11/14)’
‘Tangled Up in Blue (Live 10/11/14)’ w/guest Rocky Aikens
Back at the barn! The Rivergods return to Old Orchard Farm Saturday, Oct. 11 for what promises to be an autumn classic. 7:30pm… we’ll be bringing new material and serving up some of our favorites, too! The Old Orchard Farm barn is one of our favorite listening rooms in the region, and we’re sure their fall cider is going to be a-maz-ing! BYOB/Potluck, $10 per person. More info here.
