Remember a while back when Mates of State were going to play at the Canal Club, but had to cancel the gig because they got the chance to perform on David Letterman? And remember when I threw a little tantrum when they canceled? Well, my little outburst made its way through the internets and managed to get the attention of Mates of State’s promoters, who assured me that they would return to Richmond. Mates of State themselves even tweeted at me (I know, right??) and promised to come back, although I may have inadvertently made Kori Gardner upset with me (whoops). For the record, I was VERY happy they got to perform on Letterman (and they were of course, incredible), but was very bummed that they had to cancel.
I must have made such an impression, that I was alerted by multiple members of Mates of State’s promoters that the band will be heading back out on the road in February and will play the Canal Club on Feb. 20.
Hopefully, no other talk shows will book them on this date.
