….and we’re back!

Hey all!  Gearing up for a big summer.  We are done tracking our new full length record.  Heading in to start mixing in a little over a week.  We are very excited about this one, and look forward to doing a much larger release/pressing for it.  The album won’t be available til late summer, HOWEVER we are playing a couple of hometown shows in early June. There is also talk of dusting off a couple of oldies as well…

THE SHOWS!

Saturday June 9th @ the Old Town Art Fair (5:30pm)

Out doors, a solid line up on both days (Saturday and Sunday).  The Old Town Art Fair is one of the top 10 art fairs in the country, and celebrates it’s 63rd anniversary this year.  Sculpture, Paintings, Screen Printing, Performance, Music, Food, Booze and (most importantly) Sunshine (or Sunburn in my case).

Thursday June 14th @ Subterranean (8pm)

We are equally excited for this show.  It’s been awhile… and the line up is great.  Quarter Mile Thunder is a fantastic Chicago band fronted by Ben Clarke who, if your reading this, you probably already know, or at the very least should know.  Internet savvy types can find more info, or click on the link(s) above.  Chris Bathgate is from Ann Arbor, MI.  He sets things off at 8:30 and is an amazing song writer as well.  Come early and check him out.

In addition to musical performances, there will be some original  show “art” (and i am using this term a bit liberally) for sale. And if that wasn’t enough, the infamous Ill Topo will DJ.

so yeah, that’s about it.  let’s recap:

  • New album = almost done, mixing and out by the end of the summer.
  • Old Town Art Fair June 9th = a great way to spend a saturday afternoon outside, wear sunglasses, see lot’s of bands, and art (duh)
  • Subterranean June 14th =  sport your new tan in a darkly lit venue where everyone looks attractive, after going to dinner somewhere in wicker park.  Check out  some bands, catch up with some old friends, make new ones, weare a cool shirt, maybe buy a poster, or a cd and then when it’s all said and done, drunkenly eat a hot dog you bought from a street vendor then ride your bike home.

see you soon
