I’ve been really bad about updating this page which means there’s a lot of stuff to report on. First off, we’ve been trying to avoid shows lately as an attempt to write songs for a new full length and it’s paying off. We have two songs that we’ve played live quite a bit and a handful of other ones that are moving along quite nicely. Ideally we’ll write the record, play the songs live a bunch and then record it late spring/ early summer.
We have one show coming up which will be a really fun time. Decency Rally is a ridiculous all local fest type thing here in Buffalo in which around 20 bands play at an old East Side venue. Last year it was at the Polish Library and this year it will be at the Ukranian Center. Both venues serve delicious beer and have a gritty history oozing out of their semi-preserved walls. It’s a fun time and here’s a link to the event page: Decency Rally Facebook
Our song “Roadside” was released on an all Buffalo comp, you can check it out here: Sheets of Ten If anyone knows of a good home for our other unreleased recording for the song “Can’t Get Past,” let us know.
We played two shows that never made the shows page here. One was with Defiance, OH at the Funeral Home and that was a really excellent time. Our entire set was recorded and is available here: buffalonotrochester two of our new songs are in this set but one of them was brutally fucked up. We also played a steam punk release show in Medina, NY. Chris’ family owns and operates an apple orchard and a winery – Steam Punk is the label for their new hard cider. It’s also the term for some pretty dorky stuff of course.
Oh yeah, England. Chris and Zac weren’t able to go but Steve and I recruited some fine fellas to fill in on bass and drums: Steve Kerfein and Jeff Proctor. Words can’t describe how awesome the experience was and the band 255s is composed of the nicest guys ever. I have some video footage from two of the shows and when I get some time I’ll try and upload it.
Finally, we’re gonna try and play some shows out of town. I haven’t even begun to put this together but this is what we’re thinking:
Jan. 13, 14 and 15 – Head East
March 2, 3, and 4 – Head West
Random Saturdays – Pittsburgh, Rochester and anywhere else that we can go and play on a Saturday night.
If anyone would like to set up a show for us let us know! email@example.com
I think that’s it…
