50th State Booked: Say Hello to North Dakota!
Sat., Nov. 12. 2005 5:18pm EST
We've just booked our first concert ever in North Dakota, which means we're now scheduled to have played every U.S. state by the end of this year.
Also known as the Peace Garden State, North Dakota is the 50th state we've booked, although it'll actually be the 49th state we play; Alaska has been booked for months, but we won't play there till three weeks after North Dakota.
Any way you slice it, once 2005 is over, we'll have played them all at least once during our career, including a record-breaking 34 states this year alone!
Since we're dealing in numbers and trivia, North Dakota was the 39th state to enter the Union and ranks 19th in land area and 47th in population.
We're scheduled to play in Bismack ND on December 10. We finish off 2005 with a New Year's Eve concert in Fairbanks AK.
