Slingshot Dakota // New Music Video Premiering on NPR, On Tour Now with Dikembe

Slingshot Dakota have a couple more dates left on their tour with Dikembe, as well as playing Musikfest in Bethlehem, PA:

  • July 28, 2016 - Gainesville, FL @ Loosey's - get tickets
  • July 29, 2016 - Orlando, FL @ Will's Pub - get tickets
  • August 8, 2016 - Bethlehem, PA @ Musikfest - get tickets

In addition to these, Slingshot will also be playing both Fest and Pre-Fest in Florida!

NPR just premiered the official video for Slingshot Dakota's "Paycheck" off their latest album, Break! They had some really nice things to say about this lovely, colorful, energetic video: "Paycheck" is an anthem for small-town punks; it's meant to be heard in basements, which makes this video fitting. It's music you're supposed to mosh to, getting out every last emotion as you deal with the comedowns that happen while "trying to make it."

Little Elephant is one of our very favorite DIY live session squads! They just put up a great video of Slingshot Dakota's song, "Yes", and we know you're gunna dig it.
