Here we come!

Hey folks
We're officially in home stretch of getting ready for tour. It looks like its going to kick about a million kinds of ass. Biggest concern now is getting the word out. If you can help spread the word please do. Coming soon - updates from the road!

The official tour announcement:

Come and see the one and only HOBO LOVE TOUR and get ready to be amazed by Waltzing Matilda the One Beer Prophet (formerly known as J. Wilber and Reverend Jess Duggan) and Cindy Emch (aka Emchy) of Vagabondage and Rhubarb Whiskey as they embark on the Hobo Love Tour!

That's right, folks – these two talented tattooed ladies are following the harvest moon during the month of September, starting out in Beer City and then following the curve of the big river down to St. Louis and New Orleans. Then, they'll be cutting back east to descend upon Louisville, Kentucky and, of course, the City of Big Shoulders. They'll be spilling drinks and breaking hearts through the rust belt and the south. Whatever you do, don't miss this daring duo! It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you'll never forget!

Waltzing Matilda

Waltzing Matilda (also known as Jessica Wilber; formerly known as Jessica
Disobedience, Jessica Whiskey, Edna Million, and Reverend Jess Duggan) is
constantly restless. She's run away with the circus six or seven times - her mom was
a mime and there are several clowns in her family, so she guesses she was born with
greasepaint in her blood. She is a storyteller, a musician, a clown, a burlesque
dancer, and a sideshow performer. She is a former punk rocker who raised herself
on a steady diet of strong liquor and Tom Waits. She writes stories and songs about
travel, heartbreak, ghosts, drinking, trains, the circus, and murder, among other
things. Her writing has appeared in many publications, including
Word Riot,
Razorcake, the Zine Yearbook, the Peninsula Pulse, and the Shepherd Express
not to mention her own zines,
Safety Pin Girl (c. 1997-2004), and Sad and Beautiful
(c. 2004-present). She has performed spoken word, music, sideshow, and
burlesque in a variety of groups and events, including – the Perpetual Motion
Roadshow, Girlie Q Burlesque (Chicago), Steel Bridge Song Fest (Sturgeon Bay),
Carnivolution (Philadelphia), FILF (Cleveland), and Carnivale (Oshkosh). She'd sell
yer heart to the junkman, baby, for a buck - but if you buy her a drink or make her a
pallet on your floor, she'll likely be your best friend.


Emchy is a writer, dreamer, and the nefarious accordion mastermind behind the
bands Vagabondage and Rhubarb Whiskey. Her writings have been published in the
Can I Sit With You project, LodeStar Quarterly, There Journal, Tough Girls 2: More
Down and Dirty Dyke Erotica
edited by Lori Selke, It's So You: 35 Women on
Fashion, Beauty and Personal Style
edited by Michelle Tea, and numerous
chapbooks. Her adventures with Vagabondage are legendary, including
performances at the Hubba Hubba Revue (2008 Best of the Bay Variety Show), and
other sordid venues in California. She believes that art can create change in the
world and that it's not so hard to be nice to people. She also thinks that dirt smells
like magic and gets lost in the woods on purpose
