Railroad Earth will travel out west for its New Year’s run. The group will headline four holiday shows at three venues in two cities. The action will kick off with two dates at San Francisco’s Fillmore on December 27 and 28. The band will then head north for a gig at Portland, OR’s Crystal Ballroom on December 30. Finally, Railroad Earth will ring in 2010 at Portland’s Aladdin Theatre.

Tonight RRE is in South Burlington, VT for the first of two shows at Higher Ground.
