The initial plan was to remain in hiding until the album was complete, coming out with a barrage of shows and extracurricular activities. This is still the plan, for the most part, but all of us tend to get wrapped up in a plethora of projects. Therefore, there will be less hiding.
Tim and I, for instance, are recording with Nine Unknown, and he has an album with Force Driven that’s even closer to completion than the Tuna record! I’ve been busy working on soundtrack material for various film projects, some of which you can see at the upcoming SNOB Film Festival. Nat and Tom (besides exciting personal endeavors) have been working on new material with The Fitted Shirt, whom I’ll come back to shortly.
I wonder if I just used “whom” correctly…
Shows! Boy, are we playing some shows. Saturday, September 17, TFD will be kicking off a late afternoon/evening of rock the likes of which can only be seen once a year. The event also includes the best smelling port-o-potty I have ever had the pleasure of excreting in. (Too much? We all do it, why not get excited when it’s especially pleasant?) Bands include Nine Unknown, Brainfood, and Monkey Suit. If you’re wondering why I haven’t told you where this is, there is a reason. It’s a private-ish annual party/cookout/rock-fest in someone’s back yard (in Hooksett), and I don’t think publicizing such details (no matter how few people read this) is very appropriate. So, if this sounds like something you’re totally into, send me a message and I’ll hook you up. You’ll be fed well. You’ll drink (if you do that). You might even get a hug and a balloon animal. These are all things that happen.
Enough about that, it’s time to talk about boobs. On September 29th we’ll be performing at the Shaskeen in Manchester with A Simple Complex for the event, Beer For Boobs. This show is made possible by The Breast Friends of New Hampshire, and proceeds from the show go to The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased here. According to the site, there will be raffles (including a 50/50), specialty drinks, and “more”.
More shows to come in October with news about the album, new videos, and “more”. See you soon!
p.s. I never came back to The Fitted Shirt. We’ll be doing some shows together in October. They will be posted soon.
