Railroad Earth Announces New Year's Eve 2005 Run
New Jersey-based national touring act Railroad Earth has announced it will play a three-night run of shows in late December leading up to New Year's Eve. The shows in Northern Virginia and Pennsylvania will follow a series of concerts with Honkytonk Homeslice (Billy Nershi, String Cheese Incident) and come weeks before the release of the band's first live album, due out on SCI Fidelity Records in January 2006.
Railroad Earth's New Year's Eve run includes a stop at the State Theatre in Falls Church, VA on Dec. 29 and a two-night stand at the Theatre of the Living Arts (TLA) in Philadelphia on Dec. 30-31. This holiday mini-tour is a first for the sextet. In the past, the band has rung in the New Year with a performance near its headquarters in New Jersey, and the band's management is pleased with the schedule of performances. "The band thoroughly enjoys performing at both the State Theatre and the TLA," said management. "We couldn't be happier about returning to these venues for another successful run of shows."
