So, it’s been a wild ride. The Bachelorettes have cut an album, gone on tour, married Senryu, screenprinted tees, knitted wristbands, wrote songs about Jackson, and loved every minute of it. On June 10, we played our last show ever.
We have been so lucky to have William Patrick Butler as our official band photographer. He documented this show as well as so many other on his great blog, Scenes Around Jackson. One time we wrote a song for Patrick. It went something like this: “Ooh-wee-ooh. Thank you Patrick. Ooh-wee-ooh. You’re fantastic.” We still mean every word.
The show opened with a great set by Lizzie Wright Super Spaceship.
Lizzie recently returned from a tour with our pal Peter Squires and all her tour knowledge paid off as the set flowed smoothly and impressed everyone. She played a number of songs off her debut EP, November Tree.
We were so happy that our husBand, Senryu, could come all the way from Knoxville to play our last show with us. As usual, our men brought their costumes, energy, and theatrics.
Even as The Bachelorettes’ time draws to a close, Special Passenger Records has big plans for the coming year. Stay tuned for new releases from Dee Bird, Lizzie Wright Super Space Ship, and Dubb Nubb! And, never forget, you will always be our special passengers.
