Well hot damn. We are wicked stoked to be playing Midpoint. There are so many fantastic bands on this bill.
Let me tell you something, the idea in my head after I first saw Leah play viola and sing in a duo was, “we can steal her and then Bi Bear can sould like Superchunk and New Pornographers had a baby, and Cheap Trick is the babysitter.”
I think it worked. So playing on the same festival as New Pornographers is thrilling for us.
And the Charli Bliss record makes me want to drink a million beers and pogo. I hope the schedule lets us catch them.
And Ampline are our great buddies. beyond that, they are phenomenal. Broken Social Scene are fantastic, too. And I’ve been hearing great things about Aaron Lee Tasjan. We’re super happy.
The world’s going dark. Let rock and roll be our light. Right?
We’ve got a few really excellent shows coming up. In February we’ll be sharing the Big Room stage with the most excellent She Bears.
In April, we’re doing a handful of shows with some of our heroes… Split Single (Jason Narducy of Bob Mould’s band, Superchunk, Verbow and more) and R.Ring – the beautiful, angular duo of Kelley Deal (The Breeders, The Amps) and Mike Montgomery (Ampline, Thistle). Hot damn!
That is a poor Superdrag reference. Sorry.
Hi, all. We’re playing a pop-up show tonight at Big Room. We are playing with the always incredible AMPLINE and the magestic noisemakers, 11+2=12+1.
In the grand scheme of things, it’s a small gesture, but we’re gonna donate the door from this show to the Southern Poverty Law Center. They are extremely vigilant and protective of *all* the women and men who will be targeted the most by the alt-right in the white house.
It’d be great to see some friends and sweat out some of the frustration that many of us are feeling.
It’s an early show. Music starts at 9:00 PM.
If we can get 100 people in the door, we can send $500+ to SPLC.
This Friday, we play with the amazing Ampline at Iron Fest VI. 11 PM-ish in the lounge. Come on out, friends!
