There has been big, big news in the world of Elephant Revival since the last time I wrote about them.

This is an exciting time to be a E.R. fan! Here’s a quick recap of what’s new:

A new CD, Break in the Clouds, has been released since the last time I wrote about them. It is as completely awesome as their debut. You can get it (or both as a combo pack) at the online store Artifact Concepts. You can also read an online review of the new CD at Boulder Weekly.

Planting trees protects the environment and helps to preserve traditional livelihoods and cultures for generations. Elephant Revival will sponsor the planting of one tree for every ticket sold to their shows through their fan ticketing system powered by In Ticketing.”

Then the wife called and said a musical group known as “Elephant Revival” was going to be playing at a local small venue. I’d never heard of them. I found their web page and it said they are in th … Read More
