Rockin’ for Rabbits

We had a wonderful time performing at the rehearsal dinner wedding thingy for our good friends Kate and Lauren.  Everyone was exceptionally nice, and went well beyond accommodating, and for that, we thank you.  We saw horses, enjoyed some amazing food,  inspired a small child to dance (not the first time that’s happened – see Pericles video), and most importantly of all, we made the brides smile.  We were honored to be a part of such an exciting time in your lives.  Congratulations!

This week, we’re playing a show at The Factory.  A benefit show, in fact.  For bunnies!  As always, there is no cover charge, with a $5 suggested donation.  100% of the door sales goes to the House Rabbit Network (HRN).

So that’s 8pm this Friday, July 29th at The Jam Factory with The Fitted Shirt and special guests.  Visit the event page for details.

Speaking of special guests, the talented Jamie Feinberg joined us on keyboards and vocals for the wedding rehearsal, and will be joining us again on Friday.  She is the official unofficial fifth member of the band.

If this rhino was on a t-shirt, you’d buy it, right?

Wanna see a show for free?

It’s easy.  Just head on over to the Norm Adams Teen Center this Friday, April 22.

See Dorian Gray, A Simple Complex, East Is East, and Tuna Fish Discrepancy for FREE!

We’re taking a break from recording to play some special versions of songs from our upcoming album. We’re gonna show you how heavy TFD can get. You don’t want to miss it. Seriously.

This is a really cool venue. They have comfy couches! We had a great time the last time we were here and can’t wait for Friday. See you then!

Again?!

Yep, the show on March 26 at McGanns has been canceled.  Apparently other bands didn’t confirm when it was rescheduled or something or other, but that’s the way it goes.  We shall save some gas money and hope the kind folks at F Nice Records remember us fondly the next time around. And Christine too.

Oh well.

Dan, over at Headhat Records has been busy, throwing some tunes from the Headhat catalog up onto the Youtubes. This will link you to the Headhat YouTubes page.

Recording is going great. We’re awfully excited to show you what we’ve been conjuring up. Basic tracks are nearing completion and to be marinated in weird until juuuusst right. You’ll see what we mean.

Take care, you crazy kids you.

Canceled?!

Yup, the show at McGann’s on March 18 has been canceled. Lame, eh?

Well that’s okay, because it’s been moved to Saturday March 26. Yay!

Hit us up for tickets if that’s something you’re into. We’ve got connections. tunafishdiscrepancy@gmail.com
Holla. Is that how it’s spelled? I think so, but I’m not quite hip.

Remember when it said McGann’s up there a few lines? And remember how the text was blue? That means it’s a link, connected to the pub on Google Maps. Fancy! And we mustn’t forget our friends at F Nice Records for hosting this little shin dig. Is that how you spell shin dig? I think so, but I’m not quite hip.

In other news, we had a blast at the [Factory]. We are proud of my The Fitted Shirt! I’ll be recording a couple TFS songs tomorrow. Watch out for album #2. And check out the first one if you haven’t. Yeah, you can get Hybernation from iTunes and Amazon, but come on, be a fan! Go to the show and buy a disc!

Ok, wrapping things up, because I’m getting punchy. There’s another stupid video of TFD recording and goofing off. It’s on the youtubes, but I’ll post it where folks can find it easy. After my free Indian dinner. Yum!!

Let’s Make A Record: Day 1

Saturday 2/19/2011 was day one of our adventure in recording a record. We captured drum performances for three songs, “The Devil Don’t Share Nachos With No One”, “Vampires”, and “Black Hole Smile”, on which Tom did some very interesting stuff. This is going to be a fun record.

The idea is to take you nice folks who visit here along for the ride, which basically means I’m going to subject you to weirdness once or twice a week. Here’s the video from Day 1:

Thanks for watching,

So, um, see you all on Friday?

How about at a zoo?!

A lot of fun stuff is happening in TunaLand.  We’ve been having a ball, playing shows with a bunch of cool bands such as A Simple Complex, The Evil Streaks, Chris Emery, and Drifting Son.  Some of these shows were recorded, one of which is available over atwebhat. The show was recorded, engineered, etc. by Mitch Bosse and Christine Zombik, two very cool and talented people. If I did this right, the picture below should link you to the album. Nope, I don’t know what I’m doing. Just click the blue letters above the image.

And what an image, eh? All our faces right up in there! That’s the fine work of Dan McDermott, the guy behind Headhat Records. Both our names are in the credits, but he really does all the work. I’m just all like, that sounds awesome!

What else is going on? Oh, the time tour we went on was a lot of fun, though full of… chaos. There will be more on our time traveling misadventures in the near future in a documentary by Todd Lajoie. Time travel is weird. Todd filmed the movie, but he hasn’t started yet. It’s complicated, but there will be a live album to go along with that.

We’re prepping for the first studio record, which is going to be all sorts of awesome. Antics will ensue, records will be made.

After all that nonsense is out of the way, we’ll be back in da clubs, causing involuntary head bobs and such. Maybe we should do a record release party? How about at a zoo?! That would be awesome. Do you think a zoo would let us perform? I’ll have to look into that.

At any rate, 2011 is looking good, and we want you to be a part of it. Make sure you’ve liked us on the facebook, nobody cares about myspace, but we’re still there, and check out the Reverb Nation page.

Good Night, Sweet 2010

Shows this weekend went very well! Friday night at Madison’s Irish Pub we had a great time hanging out with Sex Tax and Mongrel, both great bands made up of great people. The night was packed with rock, cans of tuna, foxy grandmas, and general goodness. If you missed it, you’ll want to try and avoid such behavior in the future.

Saturday was an eclectic night at the [Jam] Factory starting off with the improv comedy of Granite State Theater Sports, those crazy talented folks, followed by Not Your Mom’s Sushi: A Rockin’ Christmas Spectacular, combining the powers of Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater and Neptune Sushi Productions to raise money for both companies. Rich Hurley of Granite State Theater Sports emceed the evening, providing hilarious commentary, including our set… whether he wanted to or not.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the shows (as performers or audience members), The [Jam] Factory, and Madison’s Irish Pub. You all rock.

We’re heading into the studio on Thursday to finish up the live album documenting our tour through time and space, so be sure to check that out sometime next month. Other than that, it’s all relaxation for the rest of the year.

Happy holidays everyone!

Movin’ Right Along

The Fall Micro-Tour has come to an end. Thanks again to F-Nice Records and Christine for having us/getting us the show. You can check out my interview on the Boston Local Music Show right here. If you dig the show, it’s four hours packed full of local music. If you’re only into music for TFD (and who could blame you?) scrub forward to about 2h50min. in to hear me hang out and play a few tunes.

Tonight, we’ll be playing Milly’s Tavern with Chris Emery. That dude is talented. And that’s the lineup. Us and Chris. It will be an intimate evening of pop-rock pleasure.

More shows to come:
Dec. 17 at Shenanigans in Milford, NH
Dec. 18 (at least three members) The Jam Factory in Manchester NH (for the second performance of Not Your Mom’s Sushi)
Jan. 14 at The Jam Factory in Manchester, NH

Come out and say hello.
