Welcome to the Fat Tire Tour de Fat, a 33-city tour of beer, bikes and bemusement. Costume up and party down with high-flying acts focusing on fun, music, dance and the American craft beer icon, Fat Tire. Did we mention that a portion of all proceeds go straight to local nonprofits? (They do. In fact we raised 4.5 million dollars to date)
We’re bringing the party with Wilderado and the Tour de Fat ensemble cast of performers. Ready your eyes and ears for a mix of musicians, circus performers, vaudeville acts, magicians, comedians and mind-blowing provocateurs. Costumes are highly encouraged - a mindset to party is mandatory.
1. Put no means of transport before thy bike: Come by bike because not only are bikes fun, but they help stave off some of our most wicked ills: Traffic, laziness, and pollution. Tour de Fat has a solution: ride this day, every day, and definitely when Tour de Fat heads your way.
2. Honor all other bikes: All bikes are good bikes, and all those who ride them are good people. This is the one Bike Festival that cherishes bicycle diversity on our Cruise-ade through town.
3. May every generation come forth: This is a family friendly event. Costumes, bikes and a parade? We were thinking like kids when we created Tour de Fat.
4. Thou shall come as a participant not a spectator: It's a costumed celebration of human-powered transportation. Muscles not motors, coasters, v-brakes and rotors. Come in your favorite alter ego, because when everybody's weird, no one is.
5. Thou shalt not bring booze; But enjoy the supplied malted adult refreshments responsibly: Please do not bring any outside alcohol on the ride or into the park. It could result in getting the event shut down...don't be that guy. And when you imbibe in our tasty brews, remember this is a Bicycle Festival with beer, not the other way around.
6. New Belgium shalt not profit: Our goal is to raise money for bicycle and environmental charities. New Belgium Brewing Company does NOT retain any of the events' proceeds. Please think of your $5 beer tokens as donations to a worthy cause. All sales are final; beer tokens do not expire and will be accepted next year (does not include TEXAS).
7. Remember the purpose, and bring not your pooches: No canine friends allowed this year. We're a dog-loving Brewery, but sadly not all municipalities and parks are. Please leave your best friends at home for their safety and the safety of others. Besides, it's not much fun for dogs with all the noise and crazy people around.
8. Keep the day true with thy good juju: The ride is free, but we suggest a $5 donation to the good bike advocates who are putting it on for you (does not include TEXAS). If you give more, you will not incur flats, mechanical troubles, or dry skin for a while…maybe. This is a celebration of the bike, not an anti-car rally. All tools have their place.
9. Thou shall rise early: Since Tour de Fat is a free show, we sometimes get more folks than we can accommodate. Once we're full, we will handle overflow like a restaurant or bar: one in, one out. We reserve the right to determine the appropriate crowd size in the name of safety and enjoyment for those inside.
10. Thou shalt not steal thy neighbors' bike: Don't even think of leaving with a bike that doesn't belong to you. Modern-day horse thieves will be dealt with by angry mob, pitchforks, and torches.
Latigo, due July 22 on IAMSOUND Records, was produced by James McAlister (known for his work with Sufjan Stevens), mixed by The Shins' Yuuki Matthews and recorded in the band's own studio, set up in a dilapidated house in Latigo Canyon in Malibu, CA.
Of the new music frontman Maxim Helmerich explains, "A lot has happened since we wrote and recorded these songs in Latigo. Still, the songs carry the sound of that canyon, the memories from that house and the people we will always love. This EP is an ode to all of that."
In support of the new EP, the band has confirmed new tour dates with Jamestown Revival this August. See below for details. The band has been touring extensively for the past year including support slots for Wild Feathers and Ryan Bingham, and festival appearances at BottleRock Napa and SXSW.
Wilderado is Maxim Helmerich (vocals, guitar), Tyler Wimpee (guitar, vocals), Colton Dearing (percussion, keys, vocals) and Justin Kila (drums). Two band members hail from Tulsa, OK while two grew up in Dallas, TX. They all came to L.A. around the same time and reconnected serendipitously.
Impressive harmonies..." - NME
"It's this South-Central Americana-meets-Laurel Canyon vibe that first grabs your attention listening to these songs." - Paste
