We are s t o k e d to announce our new I AM STRONG IF YOU ARE STRONG benefit t-shirt! Available now!
We've sung these lyrics with you all in solidarity for the last 20+ years... Thinking of it makes us smile and remember how our friend Elias in Zimbabwe always has an unsinkable optimism in every situation.
We designed these shirts in partnership with our friend Kris at earthisanisland.com. 50% of the proceeds from every t-shirt go to organizations fighting Covi̇d-19 for the sake of our native brothers and sisters, those who are incarcerated, and those who are food insecure... Let’s do this! We are stronger together!
In honor of Human Rights Day, our new song “Year of the Woman” is out now. Watch the music video below, directed, edited, and produced by Genéa Gaudet, or listen here.
This song came out of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings... we were shocked and upset to see the polarization around a woman brave enough to share her story of sexual abuse and that her abuser was ultimately named Supreme Court Justice.
Brett Kavanaugh is just one of many men whose stories of abusing their power and women have come to light recently…
We’re two white men who are in proximity to the problem, and we want to use our platform, as Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley says, to raise the people closest to the pain to power. In our evolution, we’ve been lucky to learn from the amazing women in our lives and in the public sphere. We’re just now grasping how different their reality is.
Our society needs less ego and more of a nurturing spirit - we need more women in positions of power. The time for gender equity is far overdue.
With that in mind, we want to learn more from badass women and girls leading change in their communities. We hope to bring you, our fans, on this journey with us and get your help. We'll be doing interviews every other month in 2020 with Calling All Crows to highlight women and girls leading in their fields.

We hope you enjoy this song and video that share some of what we learned from the powerful women speaking up about rampant abuse. We tried to convey the impact watching this unfold from the sidelines has had on us. We owe a debt to these women who put their own safety and comfort at risk to try and make a better, violence-free world for us all, and we’re excited to follow their lead and contribute to the movement.
We're incredibly stoked to share that we've partnered with nugs.net to host all the audio from our live shows going forward, including all our festivals and Summer Stops! In addition, we've been digging through the ‘patch archives to share some of our show history with you. The first batch of shows - including one dating back to 2002! - are available right now for streaming and download with more “fresh from the archive" releases coming soon. You can dive in here.
To celebrate, Nugs will be live streaming our first summer stop at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre on Sunday, June 9th at 8:30PM MT. More info coming soon!
Our new live record, Live 18, is out everywhere! It’s also now available on CD through the Dispatch merch store, and the first 500 copies are signed.
Live 18 features 20 songs, new and old, from 2018 across the states and at different venues. A few songs feature some of the incredible friends we made along the way that opened up most nights... Raye Zaragoza, and Nahko And Medicine For The People.
As an added bonus, we included a unique live recording of "Here We Go” from our acoustic tour stop at the Troubadour in LA in late 2017 featuring Rashawn Ross (you may know him from Dave Matthews Band). His trumpet solos brought the house down and we felt it too awesome not to share!
We've been cooking Live 18 up for the last 6 months or so - listening through all 34 of last summer's concerts - and we think we pulled together some of the best takes just in time for the warm vibes that are sure to come this summer. We hope you enjoy, and that this gets you as fired up for our 2019 shows and festivals as we are. Crank it up!
