You've only got three more days to pick up some classic State Radio t-shirts (for only $2.50 each) before they're gone forever: http://chadwickstokes.merchline.com
We've teamed up with the folks at Merchline to launch a brand new State Radio / Chadwick Stokes web store. Cheaper shipping, faster turn time, bigger product shots and all sorts of other goodness: http://bit.ly/CSSRstore
In honor of the fact that it's way too cold, we're having a hoodie sale in the State Radio store: https://www.districtlines.com/StateRadio
Chad is heading to Chicago later this week to record his new album with Brian Deck and Sam Beam. He couldn't have done it without the support of the patrons who pre-ordered the album, added few bucks to the tip jar or bought a living room ticket. We'll be closing the patron store on January 1st so you've only got a few more hours to lock in your copy. Everyone who pre-orders will get their name in the liner notes, access to album demos, a patron-only webcast concert and a few other goodies that we're cooking up for the new year.
Tickets for the Chad's European living room concerts just went on sale! Here are the cities and dates: March 14 - London, UK March 15 - Paris, FR March 16 - Cologne, Germany March 17 - Hamburg, Germany March 18 - Berlin, Germany March 20 - Vienna, Austria March 21 - Hebertshausen, Germany (near Munich) March 22 - Zurich, Switzerland Everyone who purchases a ticket will receive a copy of Chad's new album next year, their name in the liner notes and access to album demos and a winter webcast from Chad's house. All proceeds from the tour will fund the making of Chad's new album.
Chad is hitting the road in 2014 for another LIVING ROOM TOUR and we need hosts! This tour will hit 9 new cities in the US and 8 cities in Europe! The sets will include new songs and stories as well as some of your favorite DISPATCH and State Radio tunes. Here are the dates and cities: February 13 - Toronto February 14 - Rochester, NY February 15 - Pittsburgh, PA February 16 - Columbus, OH February 21 - Indianapolis, IN February 22 - St. Louis, MO February 23 - Nashville, TN February 28 - Long Island, NY March 1 - Providence, RI March 14 - London, UK March 15 - Paris, FR March 16 - Cologne, Germany March 17 - Hamburg, Germany March 18 - Berlin, Germany March 20 - Vienna, Austria March 21 - Munich, Germany March 22 - Zurich, Switzerland If you live near one of those cities and can host at least 30-50 fans at your home or apartment (indoor only), please e-mail [email protected] with the following info: - Include the date and city that you'd like to host in the subject line. - Your name, age, phone #, and address. - Tell us a bit about your space: Is it a house, large apartment, loft space, etc? Do you own or rent? How many people can you host? What is the parking situation? We love backyard parties, but it's going to be cold in February and March so we can only accept submissions for indoor spaces. - Include photos of the space. They don't need to be anything fancy, a few cell phone pictures will do. WHAT WILL HOSTING A CONCERT ENTAIL? - Concerts will start around 8PM and run until 10PM. Fans will arrive at 7PM and Chad and a Calling All Crows volunteer will arrive around 7:30PM. Expect everything to wrap around 11PM. - Tickets will only be sold online so you won't have to collect any money. However, you will need to check names at the door. We won't post your address anywhere on the internet. Ticket buyers will be notified of the address via e-mail two weeks before the concert. - Fans will be allowed to film and tape the shows. - Chad will need your help selling a small assortment of merchandise. A Calling All Crows volunteer will be on site to chat with attendees about their work. - Chad won't be using any amplification, just his acoustic guitar and his voice. It would be great if you could provide him with a stool to sit on and a quiet room to get ready and store his things.
Chadwick is doing a webcast tomorrow night at 8PM EDT from his very own living room! It'll be an evening of songs and stories, just like the living room tour. The webcast is a thank you for everyone who pre-ordered the new album or attended a living room concert. Use your patron page password and tune in here: www.chadwickstokes.com/patrons P.S. You still have time to pre-order (http://bit.ly/ChadwickPRE) the album and "attend" the webcast. P.P.S. We'll be archiving it for everyone who can't watch live.
State Radio Fans, After a great run playing with Mike "Maddog" Najarian over the last seven years, sadly we are parting ways. If he's as talented of a financial planner as he is a drummer than I'm sure he'll have a great career. We've had a blast: many adventures and pranks, logged in countless late-night miles as the years sped by, slept in many motel beds together and got to see some amazing places in this world. I really appreciate how he was always up for talking to people no matter what the hour or situation and how he rallied for service with the crows. above all, he drummed his ass off every night and it was an honor to share the stage with him and feel that mac truck energy coming from the kit. Like Bonham and then Grohl, Mike's drumming is ferocious but still retains soul and feel. It was great having him in State Radio for these years. We'll keep you in the loop as SR moves forward. Check out Mike's new website (www.facebook.com/najarianfinancial) and stay in touch with him on Twitter (@StateRadioDrums). Best of luck to Maddog and his future adventures, Chad
