ROCK


The Easthills just completed their 2013 “Death Of A Salesman” summer tour this past weekend.  They rounded out the summer with a five day run supporting Fastball (“The Way,” “Outta My Head”).

Since the release of their debut album in April the band has played across the Midwest in Chicago, Nashville, Dayton, Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Louisville and beyond. Dates have included multiple support slots with the likes of the Georgia Satellites, a night with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Ian McLagan (The Faces) and slots on major summer festivals including Wicker Park Fest (also featured Meat Puppets, Ted Leo & the Pharmacists), WARMfest (also featured Big Head Todd, G. Love, Red Wanting Blue), Three Rivers Festival and more. The Easthills also held their own record release show in April to a packed house in Indy.

The Easthills do have a few encore shows planned for the remainder of 2013 including a Friday, November 8 show at The Vogue in Indy serving as direct support for Here Come the Mummies and also a special appearance on Friday, November 22 as part of Tonic Ball at Radio Radio, also in Indianapolis. Tonic Ball is a benefit for Second Helpings. There may be a couple more shows sprinkled in here and there, so check back often.

And, we do have some cool new music related items in the pipeline as well…….but, more on that later.

Thanks to everyone (family, fans, friends, press, promoters, venues, bands, and that one dude in the baseball cap)  for an amazing ride so far and for supporting The Easthills!

Onward & Upward…….

Tonic Ball will take place on Friday, November 22 in three venues in the Fountain Square area in Indy: Fountain Square Theater, White Rabbit Cabaret and Radio Radio. The Easthills will perform at Radio Radio. Each venue will feature many bands performing songs by the Grateful Dead (in Fountain Square), The Pixies (in White Rabbit Cabaret) and Tom Petty (in Radio Radio). The Easthills will perform two Tom Petty songs and one or two originals.

Tonic Ball began as a grassroots fundraising event in 2002, when a small group of do-gooders decided they wanted to put on a show to raise money for a good cause. The event has since become an annual tradition and one of the most highly anticipated events on the Indianapolis music calendar. Each year it’s gotten bigger and raised more money for Second Helpings.

All in all, thousands of fans have experienced a series of superb shows featuring memorable performances by some of the area’s top rock, pop, country, folk, jazz, and blues artists. Most important, Tonic Ball has raised over $100,000 to support Second Helpings. It’s an amazing example of what can happen when people work together and play together for a great cause.
