Local band Scrimbo heading to Europe

Jeanie Butzler |

As a graduation celebration, local band Scrimbo is packing their bags and heading across the big pond. The self-described “catchy indie rock” band, composed of Adam Thoms (More Amore, The Blue Room) and Alyssa Rieper (Feathe), is currently in the process of contacting venues to play as they travel across a good portion of Western Europe. Their adventure begins in England and continues on to France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, and Spain. They will be playing alongside many European acts, even Chumbawumba. Alyssa (a recent UWEC graduate) while excited about many different aspects of the tour, said that it will be unreal to see many of the famous European landmarks such as Big Ben and the Colosseum. The “Bon Voyage, Eau Claire” European tour kicks off on May 2 and Scrimbo will be in Europe for about 57 days. What then? Adam says, “We’re in it for the long haul and are also preparing for the next big unknown tour to cross off our bucket lists: Australia.” Make sure to check out one of their shows before they leave and wish them farewell.
