This Wednesday November 19th, we have the pleasure of opening for the John Black Band's album release show.  We'd of course love to see you there!

We have what may likely be our final show of 2014 coming up.  Wednesday (GASP!) November 19th we'll be at Kelly's Olympian to open The John Black Band's record release show.  Closing out the night will be Casta, spinning some wax I believe.  8:30pm $5 21+

Also, the record is close to finished. Mastering just came back a for the second round of listening and it is sounding excellent, but we're biased of course.  Record due out early 2015 peoples.  We, for one, can not wait.

Upcoming show announcement soon plus, the record is recorded and is in mastering.  More regarding that later.  Enjoy these cliff hangers?

Holy Barn Party Batman!  What a wild and crazy time that was.  We're still a bit woozy from the boozey... I mean um... juice.  Anyway, had a blast and everyone who came and was involved was as awesome as awesome could be.

By the way, we released a little EP just in time for the Barn Party.  We'll have some available at our next show, this Saturday at the ol' Ash St. Saloon here in Downtown Portland, Oregon.  You can get it now if you like though.

After a nice run of shows we're getting into the nitty gritty of our record. We're fairly close to having it finished, but we could use your help. Kind of on the fence about the whole crowd-funding thing, but this may be the only way we're able to get this thing done and get it out to you, then come play your town.

What do you think? Would you back us if we headed in that direction to get this thing finished? Let us know.
