Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Low Volts & The Hi-Watts are prepping for a whirlwind seven days of motorcycles, locomotives and of course, heavy rock n' roll! The first stop is in Sturgis, South Dakota on August 9th to play a showcase at the Legendary Buffalo Chip at midnight. The following morning will consist of motorcycle rides through the Black Hills to visit Mount Rushmore and explore the beautiful scenery and rich history of the area. After a flat track motorcycle race on the Chip campgrounds, LV & The HW take the main stage at 7pm for a sunset show with Reverend Horton Heat and Mothership!
After all the camping gear is wrapped up, the LV lightning strikes down in Durango, Colorado to perform on The Durango Blues Train! August 12th & 13th the train gets loaded up with six bands, all performing on different cars at the same time as the century old, coal fired steam-powered locomotive twists and rocks through the San Juan National Forest and sheer cliffsides above the Animas River!
It's one helluva road trip and a few thousand miles that directly feed the songs and stories that Low Volts has been known to deliver. Choose your adventure and enjoy the ride!
