Why vegan?

Came across this little piece of tour footage we posted while on the road, and I figured it might not hurt to give it some attention again.

A Little Help From My Friends?

So, I thought it may help if I posted the tour schedule here in case you have suggestions for the spaces we currently have yet to figure out. We're looking for venues that are capable of holding a great music show, and if they happen to be veg*-friendly that is a definite plus.
