Hippy Fiasco Rides Again

Nathan Moore is making history.

Nathan Moore and Chad GalacticHis “Hippy Fiasco Rides Again” tour of northern California was organized within about 36 hours, via iPhone and old-fashioned hotel-room telephone, hosted by fans and friends in towns from Chico to Santa Cruz. Nathan and his tour manager, Chad Galactic, are on a mission to not only recoup expenses from a festival gig that didn’t turn out as expected, but to establish a new standard for “totally fan-driven” touring.

Here’s the official tour kickoff video. “We’ve got Petaluma.” Indeed.

I’m just home from the Sebastopol show, an intimate backyard concert with a bunch of neighbors I’d never met, all of whom came together to support Nathan’s latest venture. It was a casual show, completely appropriate for the venue. Nathan asked, “When do you think we should start?” Chad answered, “After this cigarette.” And so it goes.

Upcoming dates:

  • Thursday, July 29: McNears, 21 Petaluma Blvd N, Petaluma CA 8:00
  • Friday, July 30: Connecticut Yankee, San Francisco CA, 10:00 $10
  • Sunday, August 1: A semi private party at the Compound in Oakland, call hot line for details, Doors 4:00, Music 6:00, $10 Donation.
