Lotus Winter Tour

LOTUS ANNOUNCES WINTER 2009 TOUR

Lotus
Lotus hits the road this winter for a run of shows in the country's southeastern states with Orchard Lounge supporting (2/13 - 2/21). The tour comes on the heels of a huge year for Lotus, one that offered widespread exposure for their new album Hammerstrike and massive growth for the band.

The band's 2008 successes, including a coveted cover story in Pollstar Magazine and sold out shows from coast to coast, haven't distracted these humble musicians with Mennonite roots. As their relentless tour schedule proves, Lotus is ready to work. Their winter tour dates are as follows:

Tour Dates
February 13 Recher Theatre Towson, MD
February 14 Recher Theatre Towson, MD
February 15 The Lantern Blacksburg Blacksburg, VA
February 17 V Club Huntington, WV
February 18 THE DAME Lexington, KY
February 19 Minglewood Hall Memphis, TN
February 20 The Valarium Knoxville, TN
February 21 Masquerade - Heaven Room Atlanta , GA
March 6 Langerado Music Festival Miami, FL

Spring tour dates will be announced soon.

If you take the time to actually read the article, it does in fact mention the specific dates orchard lounge is opening for. It does however fail to discuss the awesomeness of Orchard Lounge.

Lotus needs to Embark on the Tour of tours, the creme de la creme of the 2009 tours... Hit up the midwest,southeast,northwest,south west, northeast... shit even hit Alaska and Hawaii, you could even give some canadian love and end 2009 with your European tour..... We as a country need lotus. and sadly somehow lotus needs all of us.

The Valarium is the new Blue Cats. BC shut down and moved to the bigger Valarium. It used to be called Electric Ballroom and is behind the Fort neighborhood. Pretty cool place bringing some great shows (Bisco 1-31!!) ...if you can find it

I thought Bisco was hittin the Tabby on 1/31. I want to hit TN and GA but the sts9 nye run stole all my monies. Lotus was fire in Jacksonville, I may have to hit em up in GA. Anyone catch Lotus late night at Camp? Zelda = joygasm.

this is one of the first times ive seen an article without any hate on the band in a long time. Im very impressed and pleased. Lotus should be honored. they are very deserving of a hateless article.

WV should be a great show! Lots of dancing room! Also, another visit to Lexington, KY and The Dame?! That show is gonna sell out or be just about there.

Lotus! Lotus!
