SNOWS BEFORE SHOWS
Hey dudes, we've posted a handful of upcoming shows we'll be playing through the spring and into the summer.
Next week we're playing on Wednesday (4/24) at 7th Street Entry with two incredibly amazing touring groups, Tera Melos and TTNG (This Town Needs Guns, UK). We play first, right at 9PM, so here's your chance to see us early for a change!
We're also playing next Saturday (4/27) at The Belmore / New Skyway lounge, which is a totally new venue to us. We'll be rocking with our Minneapolis pals Hardcore Crayons and Hasps, as well as old Chicago friends Phantom Works.
There are some regional shows coming up in May, and then we'll rock a few other shows sprinkled in there with Stinking Lizaveta and Traindodge around Ben's wedding in June (no kidding!).
Finally, there's another European tour in the works with our bros and labelmates, Buildings. Look for dates in the late fall. Holy shit!

THING IN THE HOUSE
So in two days at the Turf Club in St. Paul we will be hosting one of our favorite heavy bands from the Windy City; an instrumental powerhouse known as Electric Hawk. We are seriously excited to rock with them once again.
In order to step up our game, we will be featuring a secret 4th member for a few of our songs. If the performance is anything like the rehearsals have been, you're in for a real treat.
If that wasn't enough, pals They Dead (members of Story Of The Sea / Push On Junior) will be kicking the night off in all the right ways.
This will be our only local show until late April, details on that awesomeness to follow.

S'been far too long since the last update. Seriously. We've been kinda laying low since the November tour, working on some new songs and otherwise hibernating like proper North country folk. 2011 and 2012 were pretty damn good to us - we're looking forward to finding out what this new year will bring. For starters, we're gonna heat things up w/ good friends Nonagon (who have a new record that rules!) and Buildings (who have a new bass player who rules!) at the Cause on Lake and Lyndale on Saturday, 1/26; we'll see you there. And on Saturday, March 2nd, we'll be back at the Turf Club w/ Electric Hawk (Chicago's finest heavy instrumental riff rock band who only a fool would miss). We're also working on some regional midwest shows in the near future - so stay posted. (Also, we're on TV! See our facebook page for details.)

CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE
It's true, we're old. So old in fact that we have booked a 15 year anniversary show in Minneapolis on Saturday, October 20th at Hell's Kitchen to celebrate our elderly-ness. We'll be playing with some of our favorite bands including Traindodge, and both of our labelmates Buildings and Haunted Heads. It's gonna be a HELL of a show. Get it?
With that said, we want to hear from you as to which song or songs you want us to play at the show. We will at least consider anything from our entire catalog. Feel free to send an e-mail to with your requests!
