On August 31, one of our favorite music websites, Daytrotter, is bringing their Barnstormer tour to the Conrad Botzum Farmstead Barn. Bands performing include White Rabbits, Doug Paisley, Wildlife, Princeton, and Hacienda. You can buy tickets over here.
We also have two pairs of tickets to give out to Donewaiting readers. To enter, send a blank e-mail titled “Daytrotter” to firstname.lastname@example.org. Winners will be chosen on August 25.
We all have our favorite venues to see shows, whether they are inside or outdoors. With this tour, you get a really unique setting which takes the experience to the next level. As you know, I moved back home and live in Brooklyn now, and I gotta admit I am pretty jealous that I won’t be able to attend this show.
Full press release after the jump.
For the first time ever, Daytrotter’s Barnstormer tour is leaving the Midwest. We’re going to start our week on the East Coast, bringing the fifth installment of this run of dates to places where you can almost smell the Atlantic from the old barns we’ll be setting up in. Ask any of the seasoned Barnstormers and they’ll tell you that these are nights that you won’t soon forget. These shows will take place in Amish country, near Woodstock, in the hometown of the Black Keys, close to the Big House and they’ll occur in some of the most amazing settings imaginable — horse barns housed on the property of a former insane asylum, barns on hundreds of acres of scenic land, barns that were formerly used to make cider in and even a barn where it’s believed that cults worship. The barns alone are worth the price of admission, but the music is doubly good here as we build on the Barnstormer reputation that has brought acts like Dawes, Sondre Lerche, Local Natives, The Walkmen, Delta Spirt, Ra Ra Riot, Hellogoodbye, The Romany Rye, Suckers, Nathaniel Rateliff, Young Man, Guards, Snowblink, Paleo, Justin Townes Earle, Hands, ARMS, Mike & The Moonpies, Brooks Strause, Jonny Corndawg, Catfish Haven, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin and more into the hay lofts.
