07/07/24: Phew! We are beat after playing Outer Roominations yesterday, but it was so worth it to see people dance! It was such a great event that we were honored to play at. Maybe, we can play again next year! If you have not heard of this awesome art-festival and missed it, click here to be updated on future events!

We have been playing show in our community with local acts, KMRO and Blub, and touring acts, TSUGA and Hayes. We have had so much fun at these shows and even got to record music with TSUGA while he was in town at Sunroom Recording. It is great to be able to work with such great people and share our music with people in Humboldt County! To find the music acts I've mentioned, click on their names!

This week, we will be getting in the van to take Hermit Crab on the road for the first time! We are so excited to be sharing our music with other communities. Click here to see if we are playing in a town near you!

Here is a photo of the saxophone set-up while recording with TSUGA at Sunroom Recording and a photo of our gear we had to walk down the hill at Outer Roominations. Thank you to everyone who has supported Hermit Crab, including the audience and bands we have played with! I'll make sure to give an update when we are done with our out-of-town shows. -Trash Panda
