We had an AMAZING photo shoot in Brooklyn this past weekend with Mary Lopez, who is also the drummer for the insanely good band Prison Pretty. Mary was incredible to work with and we got some really great shots. We'll be posting them on the website and the MySpace page soon.
We've been booked at PA's Lounge in Cambridge, Mass. for Tuesday, June 23.
We are working on 3 new songs at present in rehearsal, titled 'What We Deserved All Along,' 'Unsolicited Window' and 'Party for Everyone.' We are really digging them and are looking forward to playing them live at some point.
We have been rehearsing like maniacs the next (and final, we think) 4 songs for the new record, which will be laid down this month.
Congratulations to our friends in Goes Cube, who got signed to The End Records last week. Dan saw them give a killer show at Glasslands in Brooklyn last Thursday, and they blew the power no less than 4 times. We wish them all the best as they head out on a killer tour with Valient Thorr.
Between Dan and myself we saw 3 shows at Glasslands last week. I saw Renminbi who gave a great show Monday and blew the power only once (but that's still respectable). Dan saw The Naked Heroes burn it all down on Saturday night, hats off to those crazy fuckers.
I've bought the new U2 record and haven't been able to listen to it enough to know exactly how I feel about it. There are some excellent tracks on it, though.
I've been listening to a live set of The Whores recorded by Jake James (now of Jake James and the Sexual Freedom Riders, and formerly of The Stick, who hosted us all that night) from a show they played with us at Seaside Tavern in Stamford, Connecticut back in Feburary of 2008. I can't stop listening to it, it so rules. I've also been listening to the 4 new tracks they have up on their MySpace page, which also rule. www.myspace.com/hotgodlesswhores
This Wednesday (tomorrow) night at The Cupping Room Cafe, at 359 W. Broadway in Manhattan, from 7-9pm, VB SuperFan/Mailing-List-Signer-Upper/Free-CD-Giver-Outer, brilliant artist and Dan's girlfriend Isabelle Garbani will be having an opening reception for an art show her work is appearing in.
Good acoustic music and live art this Saturday night at Teneleven in Manhattan this Saturday night, my girlfriend Sarah Valeri's two bands, Kate-Matt-Ben-and-Sarah and Snazz Mammoth, will be performing with some other cool folks. Music starts at 8pm.
That's it for now.
