We’re getting really excited this week for our first show of 2016! Hitting it with some great bands, don’t miss this. Word on the street is that we might be thinking about considering debuting some new material. (Click the flyer to go to the event.)
Last but not least, check out our first ever music video…EVER. The kind gents at Bad Racket Recording in Cleveland are responsible for this one. We just showed up, rocked out, and they took care of the rest. Kudos to them!
We are excited to be performing at Porch Rokr Festival this Saturday, August 29! Porch Rokr is held in Akron’s Highland Square. Local bands are selected based on submissions and then are assigned a porch to perform on. Preeeetty cool. Local art will be displayed on the lawns, and there is even a beer tour! We are playing at 3pm at 669 Weber Ave, Akron, Ohio 44303: Porch #15. Go to: http://www.cleveland.com/akron/index.ssf/2014/09/porch_rokr_festival_in_akron.html for more info about the event!
Also exciting…September 9 we will be at the Stone Tavern with our good friends Stems and our new friends Hank & Cupcakes from Brooklyn! If you missed them in June, you need to come out. Check out this video of them live. It’s my favorite:
Finally, we went on a cupcake tour ourselves. I (Katie) have been watching a lot of Cupcake Wars and I really wanted cupcakes. After several seasons of cupcake torture, I googled “winners of cupcakes wars 44240” and came up with some cupcake bakeries in the area. Last week, we had our own version of cupcake wars. We checked out three local cupcakes bakeries: Heavenly Cupcakes, BonBon (winner of cupcake wars), and Pandora’s Cupcakes. And the winner of our personal cupcake war is: Pandora’s Cupcakes. No competition! We won’t tell you how many cupcakes we ate, but know we are still recovering from our sugar comas.
Hello, fwiends! We have another show this week.
This time we’ll be in Cleveland at the world renowned alley of ball bowling, Mahall’s 20 Lanes, supporting Five Pound Snap from Detroit. Also supporting is gonna be Cleveland locals, The Pistolettes and Sweepyheads. The show is free with donations accepted for the touring act.
Show your support by coming to say hello and roll your balls around in public. Also here’s a quick video from our last gig, shot by Lee Boyle of Third Class’s flip phone from 1998. Thank you, Lee!
We’ve got a lot of shows coming up in the next few weeks. Our next performance will be at The Stone Tavern in Kent (our homebase) with our friends Third Class & Cereal Banter, as well as fellow Kent-dwellers Joyframe. This show is gonna be tits y’all! Check out the flyer and we’ll see you there!
Hope you are staying sexy in this cold weather! As promised, here is a little listen of our newest recording, White Collar Criminal. It’s not quite finished yet, but we were so excited we had to share now.
Finishing this track will bring us pretty damn close to finishing our next EP “Gods and Ritual Objects”. Check out the amazing cover our friend Eli Schabes painted for us.
In addition to recording, we are getting together new merch ideas and will hopefully be sharing some pictures soon.
Finally, there has been an addition to the SPD line-up…more details soon! (It’s not our dog.)
We have some upcoming shows with some awesome bands at some awesome places to celebrate the release of our new 7″ split vinyl we did with our pals, Listen Little Man!!! It includes our single, ‘I Miss You’, as well as, ‘Falling Waves of Night’, by the fine gentleman in Listen Little Man. Be sure to catch us at one of these shows to get your copy before they’re all gone!
Did we mention that each and every vinyl is a different crazy color so yours will be different than everyone else’s so everyone can be super cool??
