We´re excited to share the news of the upcoming Slow Motion Cowboys, The B-Stars and Indianna Hale show at Rickshaw Stop on Thursday, April 21st!
My ode to Pete of Slow Motion Cowboys: Pete Fields is one of my favorite people, one of the best songwriters in the Bay Area, and he is one of my oldest friends in SF. Slow Motion Cowboys was a side project when I met Pete back in 2004, a band he started in college in Olympia and occasionally revisited after returning to SF. It's been incredible to watch them grow as a musical entity. When I first moved to SF, I went to tons of Trainwreck Riders shows (a country/punk band that Pete also is in). He's got the music community thing down, and as an SF native, his songs really bring out the spirit of this city, and his new album addresses some of those changes many of us our mourning, but in the most authentic way. I'm grateful he's stuck around and continues to make art despite challenging times.
Now Slow Motion Cowboys are bringing it to the next level and are on the brink of releasing a new album, In Exile/ On the Mesa. After all these years, I am honored to be working on their big album release show, with help from my friend and collaborator, Joe Deakins, through Seaweed Sway.
Joe made an excellent radio mix of Slow Motion Cowboys, The B-Stars, and Indianna Hale. Here it is:
We also planned it to fall right around Pete's birthday, so this is a double-celebration, if anyone's keeping track. Pete's real birthday is Friday (tax day ahhh). - Jessie Woletz, Seaweed Sway
