Here’s to Going Dutch
It’s been a few weeks, but LiS have been busy. We’ve been to Montauk to see if the Stones were right about the Memory Motel, we bought a pony trailer, got lost in Home Depot, and narrowly escaped a cougar attack.
We are also happy to announce that the first episode of Live From the Dutch, featuring Love in Stockholm launched last week, courtesy of Thrift Store Sneakers. It features an interview with Charlie and intimate unplugged performances of some of our tunes. It also features the brand new song “Drugstore”, so be sure to check it out. Those of you who follow us on Twitter or Facebook have known about this for days. Literally, days.
Johnny D’s and Campfires
It’s been over a month since we performed in the Boston area, and we’re really excited for our show this Friday at Johnny D’s Uptown in Davis Square. We’re playing with our friends Melodeego, and it’s going to be a great night of good time music. We’re also planning a special tribute in honor of Bob Dylan‘s 70th Birthday, so you don’t want to miss it. Be sure to RSVP.
We’re also making our Wormtown debut this weekend at the Strange Creek Campout in Deerfield, MA. We’re playing on Sunday morning in the woods, so we’re either staying up all night or playing in our PJs. We’ll be hanging out on Saturday night too, complete with acoustic guitars and bloodshot eyes, so we hope to see you there. For tickets email Derek at firstname.lastname@example.org. Oh yeah, and look for the candy canes…
Back to Bishop’s
It’s been a couple months since our last visit to sunny Northampton, but we’re coming back this Saturday to rock our favorite third floor bar in town, Bishop’s Lounge. The last two times we’ve played there we’ve ended up in the middle of bachelorette parties, so we’re expecting more of the same. We’ll be playing all night, or at least until the bar closes, so come out and grab yourself a Blackberry Brown.
Empire State of Dave Carroll
We’re coming back to D.C.’s homeland next weekend for our first show at the famed Arlene’s Grocery in Manhattan. We’re playing with the powerfully soulful heylady and Chicago alt-rockers Molehill. Make sure you come out early, we’re playing at 8:30 sharp. The show is on Friday, May 6th, and you can RSVP right here.
The next night we’re heading upstate to Ithaca, NY for our first festival of the season. We’re playing the main stage of People’s Fest III on Saturday night at 9:00 PM, right before fellow massholes The Brew. It’s going to be a good time, and the festival’s going for three days, so make sure to grab some tickets and bring your tent.
New songs, more tour dates, and a chance to win some free LiS crap are all on the horizon. We’ll keep you posted…
LiS returns to Cambridge and sends their CD to the bargain bin
This Friday, April 8th, we make our first trip back to the Middle East Upstairs since Halloween, when we rocked a sold out show with Turkuaz and Hey Mama. We thought about dressing up like zombies and playing a bunch of Turkuaz songs, but we’ll save that for next year. This time we’re going big again, with Northampton dub-stars The Alchemystics and Philadelphia soul singer Nicky Egan. We’ve got a few tricks up our sleeve for this one, so make sure you RSVP.

Festivals and Farmland: summer tour dates announced
Boston’s early days of spring still have the bite of winter, but before we know it, summer will be here again. Instead of sitting there stuck to your couch, check out our tour calendar for a show near you. We’re making our first ever journey to the midwest, playing a bunch of music festivals, and making our first trip back to Block Island since we slept in an unfinished foundation in a stranger’s back yard. A sample of our tour dates can be found to the right. For the complete list, go to www.loveinstockholm.com and there’s more to come, so stay tuned…
It’s been a good 2011 so far for Love in Stockholm, having spent most of the winter playing ski areas in Vermont, where it turns out the snow is a lot prettier. We just hit up Northampton last weekend with the killer band The Alchemystics, and we’re coming right back this Friday for a show at Bishop’s Lounge.
But this week, it’s all about Boston. We’re having our 2011 Boston debut at the brand new, soon to be legendary Brighton Music Hall (formerly Harpers Ferry) with the already legendary Rustic Overtones this Saturday, right here in Allston. We’ve also got the killin Connecticut boys Bronze Radio Return filling out the bill, so this show is not to be missed. Tickets are going fast, so make sure to click here to buy them before they sell out, and don’t forget to spread the word on the Facebook.
In other news, A King’s Ransom is now in heavy rotation on dozens of college radio stations around the US, and even Canada! Thanks to everyone who played the record on the air or requested it at their school. We’re blowing up baby.
Stay tuned for more shows in ski country, New York City, and a Mardi Gras show you don’t want to miss….
Grey clouds are becoming a staple of the Boston skyline as it looks like we’re getting yet another snow storm this week. It makes for a nice excuse to stay inside and write music all day, but it’s not too friendly for our now weekly trips to Vermont…yet we’re doing it again.
First of all, a big thanks to everyone who braved the cold in Burlington on Saturday. It dropped below 0 that night, and we still had a packed house at Red Square. Alex forgot his boots there and surprisingly still has most of his toes. We’re also excited to announce our triumphant return to Nectar’s on Mardi Gras weekend, March 5th to be exact. We’ve heard that Burlington goes big for Fat Tuesday, so we’re going to see if it lives up to the hype. Stay tuned…
As for this weekend, we’re heading back to Vermont to play Tuckernuck Shoals this Saturday, January 29th in Ludlow, right down the street from Okemo Mountain Resort. We’re playing all night, so hopefully we’ll see you there. If you have extra boots, Alex will love you forever.
