MSJ: When are the Thickets playing in my town? Do they tour other countries besides Canada?
We are always working on finding ways to tour more. We have gone on two three-week long tours in the past 2 years, but only in Canada. It is difficult and expensive to get across borders. We are always open to doing tours in the US or abroad but it is a question of finding shows or strings of shows which will pay for our food, lodging, air fair, and leave us with enough to pay any bills that have been piling up while we are on tour. That is no easy task, but if you book clubs or know someone who books clubs in your town, have them contact our booking agent James MacLean at (416-598-3330 ext 305). Otherwise, if you just want to be put on our emailing list for shows and news, email and make that request.
