One of my goals with Ashagal was to not remain stagnant. We love playing our favorite places, to our long time fans and friends. But it is also the goal of any band, especially one which does not fit in any typical niche, to move forward and see new things, places, and people. I (John) have always had the internal plan of playing at least one new venue a year. Preferably also expanding our geographic range.
We just had a wonderful run at Philadelphia Renaissance Faire - one day of truly medieval weather aside. Those of you who saw us there heard a few new surprises in our set. Plus of course managed to get a hold of our new ep. Initial reports indicate we did a good job on that. Thanks!
We will return to several pagan pride days in the fall and look forward to seeing all of our friends.
But the next months will see us at some interesting and new to us venues. Of course we will be at Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, and are excited to debut this act there. In July we will for the first time play Dragon Thrones, a sophisticated live action roleplay/interactive theater event set in a fantasy realm similar to Game of Thrones. You may even get to see John in another role... But soon, we will play our friend WIlliam’s new Meadery - Meduseld in Lancaster, PA. Named after the Golden Hall of King Theoden of Rohan, how could we pass that up?
We hopefully aren’t done yet. We’ve had discussion of other several new and exciting venues that may occur this year or next. Keep Reading.
