A devastating day for civil rights in American & Lithuania Tour

I find it impossible not to voice my support for women's right to choose.

Today has been absolutely devastating and a huge step backwards for civil rights in our country. 

I have been a proud feminist all my life and offer my whole-hearted support to all women.

We gotta get out there and vote and get these rights back. But it's not going to be easy. 

PLEASE VOTE your conscience.

In band news, Dutch & I have been working on a project with a couple friends the last couple months.

And we are going on the road with them to Lithuania to play several shows there.

It's gonna be quite a hoot. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, here is the info...

Chesne & the Chuckleheads featuring Dutch Lithuania Tour Dates July 2022

7/5: Šnekutis - Vilnius, Lithuania

7/7: Seklyčia prie uosio - Panevėžys, Lithuania
