File Under: Surprise.

02/26/2011 § 3 Comments

The cat that is tonight’s DAAC show got let out of its bag on Facebook, which means if you’re reading this you’ve probably already heard.

That is, I assume we’re all sufficiently tapped into the social network network so, assuming I’m correct, you’ve already received the notification regarding us playing a GR show tonight and this is pretty unnecessary but I figure better safe than sorry so I’m covering this base and also I like writing things (particularly excessively long and grammatically shoddy sentences) and this kind of gave me an excuse to do so so deal with it.

But seriously, in not so excessive terms: our friends Xerxes from Louisville were supposed to play the DAAC tonight with our friends Native and Reptilian but had to drop, due to truly unfortunate circumstances, and we got asked to fill in for them. Having nothing to do but hang out, eat snacks, and watch hockey or whatever, we agreed.

SO! Come to the DAAC tonight. And tell all your friends. Do remember though that the DAAC is a small place and must respect capacity so please, please show up early if you’d like to get in. And don’t be mad if you show up late and get turned down, such is the nature of the beast, and I know we’ve covered this before. So…warned, I guess.

NATIVE, LA DISPUTE, THE REPTILIAN, THEY COME IN WAVES @ THE DAAC IN GRAND RAPIDS, MI

DOORS ARE AT 7:30. $6 I THINK BUT DON’T QUOTE ME. LIMITED CAPACITY.

CATCH YOU LATA.

Two Things:

First, we’re playing a cool MI show coming up. How cool, you ask? Try Will Smith smoking a cigar in the desert after out-air-dueling that alien invader in the single greatest documentary of all-time Independence Day cool, that’s how cool. Big ups to one of the coolest dudes in the Great Lakes State John Hein and all the rad Metal Frat dudes/Dire Wolf guys for letting us be a part of another great time at what has in some ways been our home away from home for the last 5 years. Go Blue. Dave Kloc forever. Flyer’d:

One of the cooler flyers our name has ever been on.

There are a few other cool Third Coast shows coming up in October. One in Kalamazoo, one in Traverse City, and one in the Furniture City (I’m just full of MI nicknames right now), come out and say hello. We’d love it. Flyers and final details to come.

In the meantime, one of our best friends wrote us up in a UK magazine called NME and they even put a picture by it. Cool to get press so far away, but even cooler to get it from a friend. We love you, Lee. Now, listen to the new Trash Talk LP “Eyes & Nines,” it’s unreal. Thanks to Ivano for sending us the picture, and Lee, of course, for the write-up. Here goes:

We look angry but we're really just uncomfortable.

Well, that’s about it. Tigers took 2 out of 3 from the White Sox in Chicago, that’s encouraging. Still, a long shot to think they’ll climb out of the hole they’ve dug. Mike Modano is a Red Wing. I’m into that. Hell, even the Lions looked decent in their first preseason game (granted, they went 4-0 prior to going 0-16 two years ago).  Listening to Titus Andronicus and then Ted Leo and then probably more Ted Leo, can’t complain about that.  

Oh, and Shark Week ruled.

yrs, Jordan

That cool.

there’s a small feature in this months ap magazine (#261). I honestly don’t know a whole lot about this publication (besides its use of bright colors) but here it is anyhow! enjoy.

The remainder of this weekend, as well as next week, will be spent preparing songs for our Grand Rapids show at Ladies Lit. In fact, we have three really great shows next weekend (Kalamazoo Saturday, Lansing Sunday), so make sure you try to say hello at one or two of them. check the tour tab for more info or head to our myspace.

see you soon.

Thanksgiving weekend shows

11/16/2009 § 7 Comments

There are a lot of shows coming up this coming week and rest of the month. I realize that there are also several of these shows that are on the same day and even in the same city on the same night. I’m not going to try and push our own shows any more than any other, but am going to list all the shows in our area I could find; this should be a community, and not a competition. I encourage you to check out the bands listed and decide for yourselves, you really can’t go wrong with any of these shows, and going to a show is much better than not going to a show. If anyone has other local shows I missed, please post. Thanks.

I hope this isn’t going against what I just said about pushing our own shows over others, but I do want to make a note of our friends Touche Amore from California, who are coming all the way up to the mitten to hang for a few days. They are an amazing band comprised of amazing people, and we are way excited to be playing with them near our home as they hosted us near their home.
