We also just booked a NY show at the Studio at Webster Hall for June 24.  The Pierces haven’t done a NY show for a few months now, and while we are trying to get out there and see more of you in the rest of the country, for now this is what we can do.  We’ll be playing some of the favorites and a whole bunch of new songs too.  Also on our show are the very talented band The Hymns

The exhibit remains open at the Cameo Gallery until July 4 if you weren’t able to make it out!
