Darwins Finches Live & Escatones 2011 US Tour Begins: From Texas to Michigan

Here is why it is okay to let your 6yr old child do mushrooms and dance to surf rock: Darwins Finches embark on a journey from Galveston, Texas to Michigan playing 15 shows with the Escatones. We first met Darwins Finches after they played a benefit show for Hurricane Ike. It also turned out that most of the band had also just lost their home by the beach in Galveston due to that Hurricane, but that hasn’t stopped them one bit from becoming one of Houston’s favorite bands to see for 2011. (The child may or may have not been on mushrooms, but he definitely felt the music.)

Footage is from Darwins Finches 2011 Tour Kickoff show at Fitzgeralds. Darwins Finches will be on Tour from July 1st to July 23rd playing shows acrross Texas to Michigan with the Escatones.
