The Honey Trees At The Hideout


Last weekend we went to see The Honey Trees play a benefit show to raise funds for recording their new album. They played with History of Painters at The Hideout, a coffee house that opened this summer just outside of town, in Nipomo. The Honey Trees also played at The Hideout's grand opening, where thanks to Becky's suggestion I tried my first iced chai tea, now my regular drink there. We go often, sometimes a couple of times a week. It's definitely my favorite spot for relaxing with a tasty beverage. I love the cozy atmosphere, the patio draped in Christmas lights, the comfy thrifted furniture, and the friendly staff. There's even a cat that hangs around and acts like he owns the place. Another charming detail is the beautifully hand painted lettering on the walls, all done by Becky (that lady sure can do everything!). The benefit show turned out to be such a great night! Lots of people turned out to support the band.


I was excited that Becky had a few new prints to sell, since we already have most of the prints she has sold in the past. I bought one featuring lyrics from their song "To Be With You," which has an amazing music video, if you haven't already seen it. If you like the art you see there on the table, you can buy prints from Becky's Etsy and from The Honey Trees Shop! The Honey Trees are off to Missouri next month to record with Jeremy Larson, and I am so beyond jazzed about it! Their EP Wake The Earth (currently sold out physically but available digitally) is one of my all-time favorite albums. Jacob and Becky are not only fantastically talented people, they're sweet as can be, and I'm so happy for them, that they're finally getting to create another masterpiece. I can't wait to hear their new music! Since they are recording with Mr. Larson, I wonder if we'll be seeing them on Mrs. Larson's blog...

    1. Oh I think you'd love The Honey Trees, Mandy! I know they are playing shows on their way to Spingfield so it seems like they'd probably play while in town too. I hope you get to see them, they are amazing live!

    1. Thank you Melissa, I love your blog too! It's so awesome when you find someone you know in real life with a blog, hehe, usually for me it'd the other way around. I did design it, yep. :) We should go to The Hideout sometime, there are actually a lot of bands that have been playing there. And we should go treasure hunting sometime too, you guys find the coolest stuff!

    2. Thanks Danielle! I just started blogging a few months ago so I'm still figuring things out as I go. It's been fun though. Yours is really nice- one of the best I've seen and I read blogs all the time! I'm very impressed :) And I'm down for coffee or thrift shopping anytime- let's make it happen!

    1. I feel so lucky that they're local and I get to see them pretty often. It's so wonderful that they'll be able to tour soon and more people will get to see them. Though I'll miss them being around here of course!

    1. They do sound similar to Eisley... The Honey Trees actually opened for Sucre (Eisley member Stacy's band) which was an absolutely fantastic show. I'm so glad you like them! Thank you! :)

  11. Random, but: I can't believe there was a cat in the coffee house. Must be the best place in the world...

    1. I know, I guess he's just sort of been around, even before The Hideout moved in! He's spoiled I think, hehe.
