Is there a recommended site to buy tickets through? Doomtree.net doesn't have them listed under their shows, and ticketmaster only has four of the dates listed, and ticketmaster sucks balls anyway, as we all know.

Seems to be a lot of butt eating and ball sucking going on in the end of this thread... Call the venue of the show you want to hit up and try and get tickets directly through them if you can. Most venues seem to have traffic court type operating hours but it'll save you tons of money in the long run.

I'll be DJing at the Portland show, plus my homie Danté LaSalle from Detroit, with whom I recently finished a substantial project, will be opening as he'll be in town at the time.

If you're out here, come say what up doe.

One of the more amazing musically-related things I've ever read:

Doomtree's Cecil Otter finds his voice apart from the rap pack
Sage Francis' label picks up Otter's 2008 release, Rebel Yellow
By Kathryn Savage
Published on June 09, 2009 at 11:32am

"Five years ago, Kyle Smith, known throughout the Twin Cities as Doomtree's MC/producer Cecil Otter, started working on a solo album. Walking through lonely Minneapolis streets, working odd jobs, eavesdropping on coffee-shop flirtations and strangers' punch lines, he slowly compiled the words and beats that would become 2008's Rebel Yellow. But before the album with the hypnotic wordplay could receive well-deserved praise, before Smith could perform his latest in front of swaying, front-row fans—two and a half years before, to be exact—his computer killed his baby.

"I had [Rebel Yellow] finished and I lost all the files for it, all the beats I made—everything on the computer," Smith explains. Roughly 16 record samples went into each beat. "I didn't get any of the beats back, so I had to re-create it all from scratch."

While most people would get drunk, buy an external hard drive, and say fuck it, Smith kept making beats. For Smith, recreating Rebel Yellow from scratch distilled the essence of the album. "It was kind of a blessing in disguise, because it gave me a chance to renew my idea of what I wanted to do with music," he says. "I always try to go somewhere different. I want to write very true songs—true to myself. Like, more romantic, very epic music."

The rest of it's here:

Just got home from this. WOW, if this comes anywhere near you, don't second guess it. This is a show not to be missed! Talked to Cecil briefly before the show, he's hoping his next album will drop within the next 6 months and new Sims and Dessa should be around the same time too. Lots of new stuff in the set. DO NOT MISS THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, I was at the same show!
Definitely a killer performance, plus it was the first time I really got to hang out with any of them despite seeing 4 or 5 doomtree related shows.
