    A message from the Kirsten Thien News and Bluesletter

    May 2012 promises to be an exciting month for The Kirsten Thien Band. I hope that if you’re somewhere between Washington, DC and Washington State that I’ll see you (or your representative :) at a show. There are so very many firsts this month, and many of them feel pretty weighty to me as I pack to leave tomorrow for the entire month. Here are a few:

    • The worldwide premier of Treat ‘im Like a Man in collaboration with rapper and current Georgetown student Tate Tucker. We’ll perform our collaborative version of the song, sandwiched between the man that wrote Afternoon Delight and Country Roads (Bill Danoff) and the rocker that worked with Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham on Magnet and Steel and Hot Summer Nights (Walter Egan). The entire show is stocked with talent! If you are within 4 hours of DC, don’t miss this show! This Friday and Saturday – May 4th and 5th in Washington, DC on the campus of Georgetown University. Get tix.
    • The first Kirsten Thien Band Cross Country USA Tour! We start on May 9th in Wisconsin and we’ll play shows all the way out to the West Coast. Do you know someone in Seattle or Portland? Will you tell them to come see us on May 16th or 17th!?
    • The first time hanging with the legendary Commander Cody. We’re playing on Sunday, May 20th at the Sunbanks Rhythm and Blues Festival in Electric City, Washington. Ay ay, Sir!
    • Our first show in Chicago…ever. Oh…and no pressure, it’s at Buddy Guy’s Legends club. The same “Acoustic Lunch” set that Buddy stopped in at last week to sit in with the artist. Yes, I checked his sched, and he appears to be in town that day.
    •  My first time ever on the the cover of a magazine. Ok…that’s in June technically, but they’ve unveiled the cover and it’s all over the internet. If you want a preview you can see it here at Blues Matters Magazine.
    The full schedule is below and always at: If you have friends or family near any of our upcoming shows please spread the word. It takes only a minute and it means the world to us! Here, I’ll make it easy. Go here Like us on Facebook  or send our webpage straight to one friend right now!
