Fall shows and hiatus

Hey folks,
We’re going to celebrate 10 years of Backyard Tire Fire in the fall with some BIG SHOWS (below)…and then we’re going to take a break. An indefinite hiatus, if you will. Everything is cool, we all just have lots of other things going in our lives right now. We want to thank people like Nick Curry and Geoff Harrison for their hard work and resolve. Thanks to our loved ones for dealing with the constant touring. And to the people that listened to the songs and supported us, and fed us and gave us places to sleep.
Rock & Roll,
Final BTF Performances:
October 14th – Chicago Street Pub - Info
November 11th – Castle Theater – Bloomington, IL – Info
November 18th – Double Door – Chicago, IL – BUY TICKETS
November 23rd – Chord on Blues – St. Charles, IL – Info

    Y’all are breakin’ my heart. Haven’t been able to make it to y’all’s parts but, kept prayin’ maybe I’d see ya at Voodoo, Jazz Fest, Wanee, Hang Out Fest… what ever, just something reasonable for the cats that have MAD love for y’all down in So Flo. I’m expressing my deep disappointment in BYTF news but, seriously hope all is well and hope maybe someday to see you live!!! Gonna make a concerted effort and see what I can swing to make the last show but, things are kinda sketchy for me too.

    I love y’all and wish the very best!
    Weepin’ & snifflin’,

    A Hiatus? Now? This is leaving me somewhat speechless since your most recent album is SO GOOD. I was lucky enough to read about you on a Los Lobos message board otherwise I wouldn’t have had a chance to get to know your music at all over here in Germany. I’ve tried to spread the word about BTF, too, on other forums, but all you seem to read everywhere on the boards is viral marketing from the majors. I’m not a promo agency so they just drowned me out of the mix. Yet, I can only hope you sold a few albums more from what I did write.

    However, may you enjoy your hiatus. And please come back one day for the sake of the songs. They are so good, they deserve to be heard.

    Thank you for the music.
