As an alternative to a conventional tour, the band Chasing Shade will embark today (7/22) on a tour coinciding with RAGBRAI). The band will be self-contained, transporting all of their instruments via bicycle trailers and generating sustainable power from active solar panels on their trailers. This tour will include impromptu shows during the ride in addition to nightly shows at overnight stops. The goal of the tour is to promote the harmony of cycling, music, and the environment.
Chasing Shade is an indie-beach-blues duo from Iowa City. Following the release of their debut album “pen to paper” they have toured extensively including two Colorado tours and a trip to Austin, Texas, during South by Southwest (SXSW).
