Hey there everybody, what’s goin on? We’ve got lots of pretty cool stuff coming up including a trip back to our homeland- Bozeman, Montana. Jay has never been to Montana and Fred and I miss home somethin fierce. We’re beyond psyched to head back for a week and beyond beyond psyched to play a couple shows while we’re there. There’s a house show on friday, May 25th (for more info, you can contact us on facebook, we’ll probably get an event page going as the date gets closer) and the next day, saturday May 26h, we’ll be playing a set at the legendary Filling Station. A long time ago we played a short 3 song set without our equipment but this time, its going to be a proper Sioux Falls show. Lots of our favorite bands have played the Filler throughout the years and to be playing there on a saturday night is something I’ve wanted to do for a very very long time. Sadly, the show will be 21+ but fear not, friday’s house show is still fair game for all Sioux Falls listeners not yet of age. As exciting as this all sounds, Sioux Falls great return home will not be the most important event happening in may. Oh ya, I’m stoked.
Late May, however exciting, has not yet arrived and we’ve still got lots of stuff coming up in the interim. Here’s a list of our next few important dates:
April 23rd- My birthday (and therefore the most important day of all)
April 24th at the Ash Street Saloon
April 26th at the World Famous Kenton Club
April 29th at the Rotture
May 2nd at Kelly’s Olympian
May 11th at “The Crib” (house show)
Needless to say, us Sioux Falls’ers are very excited. Maybe too excited? Other news: Happy Belated Birthday to official coolest person ever- Ian Mackaye. I’ve been on a Minor Threat/Fugazi bender lately so his 50th birthday is big news as far as I’m concerned.
Also, Levon Helm died which sucks hard. This is one of the greatest songs ever written and anybody who disagrees is a total douche bag.
This band is sooooooo good. How they’ve been forgotten is beyond me.
