New gigs starting with two on 5/12

We’re coming out. Check us out at York Street — the site of our righteously packed record release show at year’s end — with two fabulous bands: Plastic Ants (acoustic chamber-pop) and The Amprays (buzzy indie pop). Show starts at 9pm.

Earlier that afternoon, Sean, Mike, and Dave will do a stripped-down set for Westwood’s Second Saturday outside of Muse Cafe (corner of Harrison and Montana). Time is TBD — we’re tentatively shooting for 1-2:30pm-ish. Come have a beer, check out Westwood’s growing business district, and hang with us for a loose set.

Great press for The Long Fight + my favorite music of the year

We had a great record release show at York Street Cafe last month. Thanks to all who joined and made it a phenomenal night. We’ve gotten some great press for the record so far — check out Mike Breen’s fantastic review in CityBeat and Jim Nolan’s thoughtful interview at WVXU. We’ll have photos and more press up soon.

In the meantime, check out my annual list of my favorite music of the year. Let me know if you find something new to dig. Check out the Spotify playlist, too!

Happy holidays — we’ll see you soon.
