Well, hello friends!
It's been a minute, hasn't it? The biggest thing I must mention to you is that WE'RE HEADLINING AT OFF BROADWAY! I'm super-excited! (Can you tell?) It'll be Monday, July 14 (Bastille Day!)--doors at 7:30, show at 8p. $7. Here's the EXTRA-SPECIAL thing about this show, though: we're playing a set with ONLY toy instruments. Steve got a Hello Kitty drum kit from Toys R Us for the show, for example. It's pretty bitchin'. We'll also have several guest musicians sitting in with us on various toy instruments, too! It's gonna be AWESOME, and we've got a few tricks up our sleeves that you don't want to miss. It's the ONLY TIME this will happen, so if you're in STL and can come, I highly recommend you do. Opening for us (with not-toy instrument sets) will be Traveling Sound Machine (my drummer Steve's new band--he plays guitar and sings with them, though. It's their first show ever! They're sounding awesome, too!) and Kid Scientist (also from STL; '90s-inspired piano rock. I saw them open for Ben Kweller not too long ago at Off Broadway in fact, and had to ask them to open for us. They rock so hard!). In short, it'll be worth all 700 of those pennies you'll be throwing down to come to the show.
What else is new? Oh, we have a new video for our newest song "Going Down." If you've seen us live recently, you've seen Steve play the bowed musical saw for this tune, which he also does in the video, which was shot at Melt. It also features both Jason and Morgan, our buds in Bruiser Queen, a STL-based garage rock duo. If you haven't heard them, definitely check out their stuff--it's a rockin' good time! The video was shot by local videographer Craig Deeken--thanks so much, Craig!
That's about all I got for now. Go watch the new video, and don't miss the show on July 14, STL folks. I'll see you there!
