Perfumeman 2012 USA/Canada Tour

Music as adventure & abuse

This tour was organized entirely by me, and the whole time I babysat my perpetually drunk and abusive bandmate/boyfriend. The venues’ hospitality was mixed; but I am forever grateful for the kindness of the DIY spaces, strangers who offered food and shelter, and local bands who played with us. Special thanks to Otis of Ohama, Raye of Columbia, the bartender in Waitsfield, and Dustin of Guelph. My sincere apologies to Molly of Raleigh.
