WELCOME TO THE DUBS IN 2013
IT'S FINALLY HERE!
...and now it's on SUPER SALE. For a limited time get the new album
"9" for $9.99 (plus only $3 shipping and handling)
one more weekend to go before we get back at what we're best at,
Seems almost strange to us to be off for more
then a week but it was fun to be home for Thanksgiving and get together
with family. Soon we will be back to work sending 2013 on its
way with a bang! Only a handful of shows left now. Dec 14th in Ventura,
CA at the Bombay Grill. It's been a while since we played Ventura (the
closest we got was the Ojai house show this summer) but it's a place we
have loved ever since the days of Nick's venue above the antique store.
It's a Saturday night so prepare for madness.
In contrast to that show
will be the acoustic show we play on Sunday Dec 15th at Muldoons in
Newport Beach at 2pm. These shows, though small, have become a little
legendary in the OC area. Very relaxed and intimate atmosphere and the
only show of its kind we do these days.
Then Monday Dec 16th (yes a Monday) it's Hollywood at the infamous
Viper room. This is a GREAT room to see us in. Big sound system but up
close and personal venue. It's hard to believe that it all started for us
in Los Angeles yet we are so spread out these days we never seem to play
there anymore. We picked a Monday night so all those folks in the
service industry that have followed us for years could come and enjoy
there night off being entertained for a change. It won't be a late start
so even if you are working on Tuesday you can be home by midnight. Really
looking forward to rocking the Viper again.
Then it's one more for
the road, the big one, the farewell to 2013, the "hasta la vista baby" to
another year. This time New Years Eve is in the "club of all clubs to
see the Dubs" The LITTLE BEAR in Evergreen, Colorado. Anyone who has seen
us play there will tell you, it's the place. Multiple sets and genuinely
brilliant craic will be had on Dec 31st. Get your tix now as this one
always sells out in advance.
The Young Dubs have a new mini documentary made by our good friend
Doug is responsible for the "day in the life of the
Dubs" St Paddys day video seen below but here he has really outdone
himself. He tirelessly followed us through the writing, recording and
performing of WE THE MIGHTY over several months and has now made it
available to all of you. If you ever wondered about this process, here
it is! Big thank you to Doug.

The Pledge drive is over. Thank you all. Now blast the
new album "9" from the hilltops!
Still a few new shows to add to the end of the 2013 calendar. Keep
an eye out for your town on the Tour Page
It's here. The new album was released to Pledgers and Fans. We also
played our first of many record release parties across the country. This
first one was at the ROXY in LOS ANGELES on JULY 12th Many more to
Although the year is looking pretty full already we are
still adding a few more dates. Look for us in OR, WA and beyond. Danish
tour to be announced soon also.
THE IRELAND TRIP, MARCH 2014 It's selling fast, only 20 spots left.
is set for late March 2014.
This time we are trying something brand new to include those of you who
have never made it because of the lenght / cost of the trip. We realize
that 10 days is a long tome for some people to get away and can also be
cost prohibitive. So we are changing things up a bit. This time there
will be a 7 day option with an available 3 day extension. All the shows
will take place within the 7 day tour and the extension will be for
those who want to spend a little more time chillin out in a few Castles!
We are working out all the details right now with our friends at Hammond
tours but we feel this will open up the trip to far more of you without
cutting the trip short for those who love the full 10 days.
are planning on returning to some of our favorite spots in the South of
Ireland on this one. Killarney and Kinsale being two. Of course Dublin
will be included too!!! CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE DETAILS.
