Two Gallants: First Show In 2 Years


Two Gallants by Charlie Villyard
Two Gallants (Adam Haworth Stephens and Tyson Vogel) will play their first live show since leaving off at the Fillmore on Dec 26, 2008. During the break, Adam released We Live on Cliffs (Saddle Creek) and Tyson released Devotionals (Alive Records). The band’s live reunion will take place Saturday, April 23, at San Francisco’s Bottom of the Hill. Tickets go on sale Saturday, February 26, here.

As has been reported, Adam was also involved in a near fatal van accident returning from tour last fall. He suffered severe nerve damage, a dislocated shoulder, and a broken rib. Fortunately, with an intense physical therapy schedule he will be able to play again.

The upcoming Two Gallants show is $15, all ages, and openers are TBA. A personal note from the band was posted this week at

Hello again

Dear dear old friends, fans, family. It has been too long. We are writing to announce that after over two years apart, we, two gallants, are once again one. Not that we were ever not one. But we have strayed quite a distance from the comforting light of the home fires. We have walked the dim lit alleys each with its requisite border of silhouetted doors. Watched the illusory trail of e-missives sent into the night. Necks in a permanent crick from askance browsings of online dating site profiles. But oh the hollow feeling to wake with the scent of a stranger upon the lips and the ineffable sense of longing for the way things used to be.

Two years ago we had become so caught up in the motions of it all that we no longer knew quite what we were doing and why we were doing it. Cogs in the machine. Dust in the wind. But there’s nothing like a well earned absence to make the heart grow fond of itself once more. We hope that you can find it in your hearts to understand. We know that some of you have been asking when we’d be back at it again. If you didn’t receive a reply from us its only because we didn’t have one. Until now.

Please join us if you can in our dearly beloved hometown of San Francisco on April 23rd, 2011 at the Bottom of the Hill. Your presence will be extremely welcomed. For those of you who have been with us for a while and those of you who intend to, we appreciate your patience and your continued interest in the music we make.

Adam & Tyson
2GS biatch.
