Venues they’ve performed at include House of Blues (LA and SD), The Belly Up (SD), The Casbah (SD), The Utah (SF), Starlight (Seattle), The Mississippi (Portland), The Laurelthirst (Portland), and Anthology (SD).

"From Dylan’s tribal-like percussion to the haunting backdrop of Omars’s mandolin and piano, to Andrew’s unparalleled vocals and guitar strumming; these three musicians blend their talents together perfectly... The Peripherals possess their own story, their own authenticity, and speak to audiences with sincerity. They’re not afraid to do something that’s already been done; they just make it so damn good."
"...the band comes together flawlessly presenting a full soundscape of acoustic sound mixed with lyrics that tell a story of growth that leaves the listener waiting on the next verse to see where the story goes."
"... makes me feel as If I was tuning into a jam between Wilco and Neil Young, meeting somewhere half-way along one of those cinematic American open country roads. This record embodies a great compromise between the modern take on folk and indie rock of the former and the timeless approach and feel of the latter... There is a very natural, straight-forward simplicity that makes this record (and this band) truly stand out as a whole." -The Bandcamp Diarieshttp://thebandcampdiaries.tumblr.com/post/58357507812/the-peripherals-declarations
