Read Scott McCaughey’s summary of The Baseball Project’s Cactus League tour 2011 below:
The Baseball Project completed its Cactus League tour with a nice homecoming show (for me, anyway!) at the very cool Bunk Bar in Portland OR. We had great times bringing the four-seamed-fastball rock to Georgia, New Orleans, SXSW, Phoenix, Tucson, California and the Northwest. We survived a desolate van breakdown thanks to the Randy Mantooth of modern rescue, Howe Gelb, and our intrepid tour manager John Hill. There were lots of extra-curricular activities like sitting in with pals Kevn Kinney, Robyn Hitchcock, and Roy Loney along the way, and numerous appearances at ballparks and on radio and TV. Check out our acoustic spot for Extra TV and keep an eye out for the TV broadcast any day now. And keep an eye on thebaseballproject.net for more upcoming dates throughout the spring and summer.
