You can never have enough thank-yous

Paul

Wow, I cannot possibly express in words how incredibly thrilled I was after our show on Saturday. We easily had the biggest crowd we’ve played for, and pretty much every person there said this was the best show we’ve played. That is due to the awesome musicians we played with and the great energy of the crowd. Thank, thank, THANK you also much! Also a huge shout out to the other acts that night, who were all incredible – Faraz Choudry, Tiffany Thompson & Jenn Bostic, esh,and Deadbeat Darling. I would gladly play with any of these awesome acts again. and of course, huge thanks to Swizzle Steve and Double Door for organizing such an awesome show. Hopefully we’ll be playing many more just like it.

Now, as you may well know this show was our CD release party, which does indeed mean our CD is officially up for sale! You can buy it now from our Music page for a minimum of $5 (or more if you’re an especially awesome person), and shortly the album will be available from iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc.

We’ll have more updates soon, but for now I can’t say enough how thankful we are for our friends, fans, fellow musicians, and most importantly our Kickstarter backers – without whomever none of this would be possible.

We’ve got more shows in the works – check back here soon to find out more!

We have the CDs!!!

Paul

After many months of hard work and HUGE support from friends like you, we finally have the album in hand!  Here’s a look:

 

The Mediocre Fight - We Are Enablers

We can’t wait to get these in your hands!  Don’t forget, this Saturday, December 3, is our official release party at Double Door Chicago.  We’ll have CDs on hand for those that already bought them, and selling copies for anyone who hasn’t picked one up yet.  Not only that, we’ll be putting on an awesome show with 9 other fantastic musicians.  I’m in one of those “too excited to sleep” moods, can’t wait to play all the new music for you this weekend!

Announcing Our CD Release Show!

Adam

Saturday December 3rd at The Double Door 

Other artists who have played at the Double Door include little known acts
The Rolling Stones, John Legend,  Wilco, and  The Smashing Pumpkins

That movie “High Fidelity” with John Cusack, Tim Robbins, and Catherine Zeta-Jones?  They shot scenes at the Double Door and referenced the venue in the film.

For us, this show is a big deal.  We’ll be playing with a full 12-person band!
After months of preparation, we can’t wait to debut our new sound at one of the most revered rock and roll clubs in the world.

We hope you’ll join us.

The last song from our album is up!

Paul

Go listen to Passed Time now!  This is one of my favorite tracks, partly because it’s like 3 great songs in one, and partly because it was so much fun to record.  The last part of the song came from us being locked in a little recording booth with a bag full of percussion instruments.  At one point I got to play a chair as an instrument.  Good times, happy times.  Enjoy!

This song features cavemen.  In space.  Copious amounts of cowbell.  Organ solos.  Castle Rock.  WHY ARE YOU NOT ALREADY LISTENING TO THIS MAJESTIC PIECE?!?

 


Sep 26 2011

Listen to the third song off our album!

Paul

UPDATE: Boom, gone, go listen to Spacecaveman.

“Kind Eyes” is now available for your listening pleasure, for a limited time.  This is one of my personal favorites, due in large part to the addition of Erik Kang from Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s on violon.

Give it a listen and tell us what you think!
