Here’s a throwback to recording ”To Be Loved” on a hot summer’s day. That song is on our album “Follow Me Under,” which is now one year old 🎂 🎊 We’ve got three big Bay Area shows to celebrate this anniversary, and the first one’s tonight in Fairfax. 🗻9/27 @perisfairfax 🧂10/12 @henhousebrewing Freshtival 🎱10/25 @ivyroom, Albany
One year ago today, we released this bad lady. You can find it online, on vinyl, and at all of our shows. Come celebrate with us at Peri’s Bar in Fairfax on Friday, September 27th. Album Artwork by @codyblockerstudio

To everyone back home for cheering us on, making do in our absence and allowing us to make this tour happen. We seriously couldn’t have done it without you. We’ve released a new video for “Dry Me Out,” and are planning some really fun shows for the fall. Stay tuned. ❤️ VG
Last show of our European tour is tonight at #DeMelkbusDordrecht. This has been one of the most amazing experiences for us as musicians, and we’ve met so many amazing people. California, we’ll see you soon.
Update #4: we’re currently sitting in traffic (à la the @joanandtherivers song Street Meat) en route to Gedinne in Belgium, so we thought it best to share with you some happenings from on the road. Tübingen, Unna, Leeuwarden, Meppel, and Den Haag - read about it on our website vangoatband.com
Great times in Meppel last night at @muziekcafeclouso. Tonight we play @wildroosterfestival in Den Haag, 8pm showtime 🐓
Update #3: Hello! We’ve posted a another piece about our European tour on our website. Leipzig, Viechtach, and Livigno. Link to read it o’er there in that bio there ↖️ 🐕 💿 🏥 🌲 🏞
Goedemorgen from Meppel! Tübingen was a wild time, and we met such wonderful people at Tortuga in Unna. We’re headed to Leeuwarden in the Netherlands tonight, then back here tomorrow!
Last night we played a surreal and amazing show, at a 587 year old infirmary that was recently converted into a concert venue. Tonight, we‘re at Marcos Pub in Livigno, in the Italian alps. #vangoateuropeantour2019

The last few days have been wild. Thanks to the good people of Liège for having us, and to everyone at Heuvelzicht in Essen for the wonderful reception. We have just arrived in Denmark after a long drive - up next it’s an outdoor concert at Amfischenen in Odense tonight! 📸 François Wauters
Thank you Liége! So happy to have been here to celebrate the August 15th festival. Now it’s time for us to ride to Hessen, in north. #exercise #fitness #workhardplayhard
Sunday afternoon at @lokaal_42 in Helmond in the Netherlands was an awesome time. And Monday night was packed at @muziekkaffee_titanic in Belgium. Thanks so much everyone for coming out and to all our gracious hosts. Up next, we're playing a free concert in Liege, Belgium.

Two days in, and Belgium has been magical. So magical in fact, that we have been transformed. Tonight we head to Bottelare, a village just south of Ghent, for a festival gig. Thanks @jakes_place_westerlo, Cafe Pallieter, and @rootstownbookings for all the hospitality so far; we’re having a blast. Feeling a bit gnomesick...
