Here's the whole story. I've only got a minute, so pay attention!
We've made a new record. It's coming out on Touch&Go sometime this year, not sure exactly when. It'll be called "Italian Platinum." It seems like it sounds pretty good, but who am I to say? I'll put some tiny little snippets of it up here when I can.
We're playing some shows, as follows:
Fri 22 Feb / Madison, WI / the Annex w/Million Yen
Sat 23 Feb / Minneapolis, MI / 7th St Entry
Sat 16 Mar / Dubuque, IA / 4H Hall (early show--about 4pm)
Fri 22 Mar / Chicago, IL / Schuba's w/Mates of State and The Swords Project
Sat 23 Mar / Indianapolis, IN / Radio Radio w/The Swords Project
Sun 24 Mar / Wayne, MI / Michigan Fest w/a thousand other bands
Not sure what time we're playing at Michigan Fest. I'm excited to play with The Swords Project, they're from Portland & I used to see them a bunch when I lived back in Seattle. Those were different times. I'm excited to relive them in a very small way.
Okay, I got to go!
Maybe I should've mentioned this earlier... but Tim's gone off to London to master the record at Abbey Road, and someone asked us at the last minute to play at The Abbey tonight - that's right, tonight, February 9th. So Andy and I are going to play it! That's coming up in, what - three hours, I think we go on in three hours. So, uh, gosh! Check it out! I can't remember where The Abbey is... oh, it's at 3420 W. Grace, which is I guess Grace at Elston, which is somewhere around Kedzie where they intersect is.
I'll write something about the show later on, just in case some of you don't hear about it in time.
I've updated the journal. We've finished our record. I've posted some new photographs.
We do have some shows coming up - soon, actually, shit! Well, not totally soon. Pretty soon. We're playing Madison on the 22nd of February, Minneapolis on the 23rd. Mineapolis is, I'm pretty sure, at 7th Street, Madison is at some festival or something. No! Madison is at some bar! I think it's called the Annex. I'll add a note when I actually know what I'm talking about. I do think these things I've said are correct.
In March we're playing in Chicago and in Indianapolis, in April we're playing at All Tomorrow's Parties, and... and... and then sometime after that we'll put out a new record, and maybe play some more shows.
Again, more news when I'm more willing to make concrete statements.
It seems like every time I pay any attention to this page it's suddenly been two months since I last wrote anything. That's about how long it's been... well, no, no, it's been less than that. At any rate, it seems like ages, and it's about time that I write, if for no other reason than to tell you about the two shows we're playing next weekend, both shows in Ohio, the first, on Friday, in Toledo, the second, on Saturday, in Cleveland. To make it official:
Silkworm with Ralph Phillips Band and Neuman
Bottle Rocket Bar
Friday, January 11th
Silkworm (with OKGO? I think? It looks that way, anyhow... I know of them because they do the theme music for what's-her-name's show on NPR)
1765 Coventry Road
Saturday, January 12th
That's all I know. If I'm wrong, I'll change it before the weekend. I hope you're all well. I went back to Seattle for Christmas, & have been going through withdrawals, you know - mountains, trees, Mom.... But I'm feeling a little more stable now. We'll be hopefully finishing up a record the last week of this month, oh just cross your fingers and hope for the best. What more can you do?
Don't forget to go to the show in Milwaukee tonight. I myself am planning to attend. Cactus Club, 2496 S. Wentworth, 10:00 or so. Have they started that Muskegon-to-Milwaukee ferry service yet?
