Tyler also leaving Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (after Saturday’s free show in Times Square)
Just writing to let you know that Saturday's show is going to be my last one with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.
I am very proud of what this band has accomplished over the past eight years, and I will miss playing with such talented musicians. I wish Alec, Sean and Lee the best of luck with whatever CYHSY does in the future. I wish Robbie the best of luck with his musical and horticultural endeavors. As for me, I am currently in the process of forming a presidential exploratory committee for 2016.
I hope to see you on Saturday. Expect an epic bass solo.
Robbie, who also plays in Radical Dads, also just announced his departure from the band, who have a tour scheduled with Edward Sharpe.
Radical Dads have two shows coming up: July 14 at Charter Oak Cultural Center in Hartford, CT, and July 15 at Big Snow Buffalo Lodge in Brooklyn (with Disco Doom, Grass is Green, and Ovlov).
The free CBGB Festival show in Times Square (Stages on Broadway at 46th Street & 51st Street) happens Saturday (7/7) from Noon to 6pm with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, The Hold Steady, Duff McKagan's Loaded, Superchunk, Glint, Upper West, and Zulu Wave.
