5 Years, 260 Tuesdays – 8 more to go …

Dear family,

We are coming upon 5 years, 260 Tuesdays at Underground Nomads, with 8 more Tuesdays to go.

“WHAT???” Keep Reading …

We are excited to be celebrating 5 years, And to announce that we are still here, and will continuing to do shows after our last Tuesday. Underground Nomads is going nowhere … Wait, that’s not true. We are going Everywhere!

We already have some plans in the works to bring Underground Nomads to some different locations in the Bay Area and beyond. We have already done shows in Malaga, Spain and Portland, Oregon, and have plans in the works for shows in Oakland and Seattle. We’ll even come back to F8 on occasion because it is and always will be our home.
