The Valley Downs to open for legendary Shoes on Saturday, July 19th

This just landed in my inbox a few minutes ago. Sadly, I am in SoCal this weekend and not in Evanston, Il or I would definitely be @ Space for sure! 

Hi Kids!

Just a reminder, we are playing with Shoes in an WXRT show this Saturday 7/19/14 at Space in Evanston.  It's early, all ages and sure to be a great time.

This is almost a year-to-the-date of our 2013 Shoes show at space. If you missed that one, now's your chance. If you were there last year, you know that Space is simply one of the best music rooms in the country and what a special night that truly was.

The tables are all sold out, but there are still some general admission seats available You can learn all about the bands, the venue and how to buy advance tickets (delivered directly to your email or held for will-call) at http://evanstonspace.com/shows/?event_id=4188014 

We are thrilled to have the chance to once again play with our all-time favorites, Shoes. If you check out shoeswire.com you can listen/hear/read all the latest about one of rock's most important bands and see why publications like Billboard, Rolling Stone, LA Times, Goldmine (and countless others) herald Shoes as critic's darlings.  Or you can read about their run-ins with rock history in their recently released biography http://www.amazon.com/Boys-Dont-Lie-History-Shoes/dp/0615403948 (strongly recommend reading about their meeting with Gene Simmons of KISS!). Their latest release, Ignition, made several Top 10 lists and supporting performances included stops in NYC, Ravinia, a pre-release tour of Japan and a series of shows at SXSW.

The Valley Downs will also be debuting our latest new song The Prettiest Girl In Salem and will have a limited number of CD singles of our song Prison (Ain't No Fun For A Girl) at the show. We are wrapping up mixes on the full length release right now.

We hope you can make it out for this special show and want to once again thank Shoes, WXRT and Space for having us part of what promises to be another very memorable evening.

Happy Summer!
