We’re happy to announce we’ve finished recording at UPTOWN RECORDING STUDIOS and we are in the process of getting our new album packaged to release online as well as at our CD RELEASE SHOW ON JUNE 15TH at the DOUBLE DOOR…you can buy tickets HERE! Stay tuned for more information on how to purchase the music, but for now, check our facebook page on our upcoming shows in Madison and Milwaukee!
We are very honored to announce that our music is going to be featured in a short-film, “Won’t Go Quietly” directed by the uber talented Jonny Diaz and produced by Solo Picture Studios. It hasn’t been released yet, but you can check out the trailer here and catch a glimpse of a scene that was filmed at our December 7th Subterranean show:
On a side note, we’ve missed you all while we’ve been in the studio recording for the past few weeks and we can’t wait for you to hear what we’ve been cooking up at Uptown Studios! In the meantime, please mark your calendars for our next two shows:
April 19, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. in Milwaukee at Club Garibaldi (2501 S Superior St).
April 20, 2013 at 8:30 p.m. in Chicago at the Beat Kitchen (2100 W. Belmont).
As many of you know, musician and producer Dan Stock (of the hard rock band, Bruiser) has been a huge force in the Chicago rock scene for the past decade. We were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with Dan at Uptown Recording Studios last year–he engineered and produced our first EP as a trio. Recently, we were extremely honored to be invited by Dan to play at the first annual “DANSTOCK” at Lincoln Hall (2424 N. Lincoln Ave.) on Thursday, February 7, 2013. Tickets for this event can be purchased for $20 each here. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and bands will start playing at 8:00 p.m.
This concert will be our most important show to date. All proceeds will benefit melanoma research at the Lurie Comprehensive Care Center, where Dan has been receiving medical treatment in connection with his battle with melanoma. According to Dan, he organized this benefit concert to “give a little bit back” while he still can. Please join us at this event to celebrate the life of our dear friend, producer and fellow musician, Dan Stock, and to help raise money in his honor. We’ll be playing with three more great Chicago bands that worked with Dan: Farkus, Nature Show and Carta Marina.
You can read more about the event on Facebook here or in a number of blogs/publications, including The Local Tourist, Uptown Update, Broken Hearted Toy, Illinois Entertainer, DNAinfo, Lincoln Square Patch, Windy City Rock, Curb Service Music, Time Out Chicago, JBTV and the Welles Park Bulldog. If you can’t make it to the show, you can also make a direct donation to the Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center at https://www.give-northwestern.org/donate (click on the “Additional Feinberg Designations” drop-down box, and scroll down to melanoma research).
If you didn’t catch our appearance on Mancow’s Morning Show where we promoted this event, check it out on Mancow online or stay tuned for clips to be posted on Facebook and YouTube. It was a riot. Spoiler: Mancow offers to pay for us to get haircuts and asks us to play live for a wrestler and a woman in a full duck costume.
We had an amazing time playing live for you today at WGN for their Music Lounge Segment on the Midday News. If you missed the show this afternoon you can view it here and, for an exclusive look at the green room backstage at WGN Studios, check out our latest Solo Picture Studios promo here. All of this hype is leading us into our first show of 2013 tomorrow night (1/26) at the Beat Kitchen (2100 W. Belmont Ave., Chicago, IL 60618). The show will be presented by Shoeshine Boy Productions and we’ll be playing with two fantastic Chicago bands: Ideamen and Mos Scocious.
