Doors: 7:30 pm / Show: 8:30 pm
Just got back from a super fun tour of Europe. The crowds were great. They really opened their hearts (and wallets) to me and the Sex Robots.
I want to thank Mike Edmondson and Anna Coogan. They rocked it every night and did all the hard work behind the scenes (driving, merch sales, getting me out of bed). Also want to thank Mark Lotterman and Park Doing. They did the support on the tour and lit a fire under me every night (and also helped with the practical stuff).
Thanks to Sedate Bookings for a great job booking the tour, to Artist on the Road for supplying the van and equipment, and to Del Day of Ark PR for promo. It’s a pleasure doing business with you guys. And last, but not least, thanks to Kat Dalton, my wife and manager. Without her hard work, there would be no tour or indeed no Johnny Dowd music career.
Below are some of my photos from my instant camera which Kat got for me for the tour.

We weren’t there (tragedy!), so all photos courtesy of Mike,Anna,Park and various Facebook Friends. Kinda in order, maybe not, but you get the picture…
First and often, the band steals it’s own soul,selfie-style:
And always, you gotta get from here to there:
Then Johnny Dowd and the Sex Robots Rock the House:
For down time, we have:
And lots and lots of sitting around:
Eventually, though, Real Life intrudes, flying everybody home:
– Thanks to Rob Szczerba for photos of the Greystones show 2016
– Thanks to Russell Lewis for photos of The Bank show 2016
Mucho creds to the awesome photographers who generously share their photos with us. Readers may notice a slow loading of these pages, as our policy is to give the photos their due, and we generally upload at full res. Trust us, it’s worth the wait!
Ik denk dat ik inmiddels een ceedeetje of veertien heb van Johnny Dowd. Maar 1 fan maakt natuurlijk nog geen zomer. Dus zag ook Johnny Dowd zich genoodzaakt om zijn nieuwe album te financieren d.m.v. crowdfunding. Fans konden onder meer ere-werknemer van zijn verhuisbedrijf Zolar Moving Company worden.
“Execute American Folklore” wordt de titel van het album dat 9 september verschijnt.
1 oktober start er een Europese tour. Onderstaand de Nederlandse concertdata.
I think I now have a ceedeetje fourteen Johnny Dowd. But one fan, of course, does not make a summer. Also saw Johnny Dowd forced to finance his new album via crowdfunding. Fans could be more honorary employee of his moving company Zolar Moving Company.
“Execute American Folklore” is the title of the album September 9 appears.
October 1 will start a European tour. Below are the Dutch tour dates.
Date location place support act
WED OCT 12 patronage Haarlem, Netherlands Park Doing
SAT OCT 15 the Peppel Zeist, Netherlands Park Doing
SUN OCT 30 Office Beukorkest at TAC Eindhoven, Netherlands

Editors note: “ceedeetje”??
i wonder if anybody would be interested in booking me for a house party?
Thanks, Ganesh. See you next year!
Disco Sausage – a film about Johnny Dowd
Dutch singer Mark Lotterman filmed Johnny Dowd when they were on tour in the UK last year. He turned it into mini-documentary. Disco Sausage catches him on the road and on stage, leading a shoestring rock ‘n ‘roll life style, doing interviews and trying to find the place where is supposed to sleep. Lotterman and Dowd are good friends and it shows in this labour of love. The title comes from an impression of a sausage routine that Johnny came up with during one of the shows.
Johnny will be on tour in Europe in October, promoting his latest album Execute American Folklore. Park Doing is the support act for the first two weeks (October 12 through 23) of his European tour and Mark Lotterman got the call for the final week (October 24 through 30).
Special thanks to Herman Straalman for generously supplying us with photos!
