Hey all! We’re 2/3 Goat, NYC metrobilly band and strong friend & strong advocate of What’s Protocol.
Been a while since I’ve checked in with the good readers of WP! It’s my pleasure to bring you my Tour Diaries for our March jaunt. We’re currently on our way down to Austin, TX, for the annual SXSW Music Conference. It’ll be our first time visiting SXSW or Austin, for that matter! I can’t wait to see what kind of adventures the Weird City brings us.
Where we’ve been so far:
To follow our shows, see what we’ve been up to, and to see photos & videos from the road, you can find us at all the main hubs:

Writing & playing music are only one aspect of being a touring musician. Being from NYC, you hear the phrase, “If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.” I daresay that principle is also true of The Road. It requires an immense amount of patience, faith, and a different kind of strength to find yourself in a different city everyday, practically living out of your car as well as depending upon that vehicle to get you where you need to be, when you need to be there.
We are still touring in a 2002 Two-Door Honda Civic. It’s only the two main members of 2/3 Goat this time: myself and my co-bandleader (-slash-fiancée) Ryan Dunn. We’re pretty sure this is the last haul for the Nighthawk, our beautiful Honda with the moonroof & spoiler. She’s got a great attitude, but hitting 200,000 miles by a certain point of this tour takes its toll on the best of us. We expect to be upgrading soon.
**TOUR TIP #437: Don’t spill Fix-A-Flat in your car.
This is the result of a can of the stuff having somehow spilled (luckily only underneath the trunk) and leaving a fresh stank that we thought for about an hour could be gasoline. Thank the Gods of Touring, it wasn’t! Ryan called the Honda dealership just to check if it was even possible (it’s virtually impossible) and what color gasoline really is… more of a pee color, as opposed to our milky white substance that greeted us once we started investigating the smell.
Stay tuned to see what else the road throws our way, and how we dodge proverbial bullets in a (hopefully) graceful, stealthy manner. Goats are nothing to be fooled with.
