Alas, Alas, Hiatus

Hey Folks,

I thought I should post something about this here since we haven’t put much about it online and are still booking inquiries, etc.  We are currently on an indefinite hiatus, as our members are growing geographically further apart on more permanent bases.  It happened kind of sudden and we played our last shows in August, 2013.  We love and thank you all for being a part of our musical experience, and for now say “Farewell, but we may meet again in the future.

Alas, Alas

Playing at Black Forest Inn - 8/11/13

What the title says.  We’re playing at Black Forest Inn this upcoming Sunday, August 11th, the year of 2013.  The show is gonna run from 7pm-11pm or so.  We’re joining forces with Midwest Paul Cook, and our new friends the Poor Nobodys.  I’ve never been to the Black Forest Inn and I thought it was some fancy [German] restaurant, and wondered “what if I don’t want to eat German food and I just want to come see some music?”  Well, I still don’t really know, but the show is in a separate event room from the restaurant, which I hear is a beautiful space, and I think a server comes around for bar service or you can go to the bar, and can probably get food too.  If you want to see us in Minneapolis this year, this may be the last chance you hear about so get it while it’s good!

We’re playing in Two Harbors and Duluth, MN on August 16th &17th so check out or facebook for events or maybe we’ll post more here.  Love y’all.  A,A.

Minneapolis Show

Summer 2013!

We’ll be back in action for just a couple months this summer, from late June to early August.  Hopefully we can play as much as possible in that short time.  Let us know if you have any dates in that period you would be interested in booking us.  We’re really excited to play together for you this summer so let’s make the most of it and kick this snowy spring in the ass!

Tour =(

Hey folks, we are bummed to say that we have to cancel our East Coast tour to take care of some stuff at home. We will miss y’all and thanks to everyone who helped us out! See you next time and keep your eyes peeled for us around MN and the midwest in the next couple weeks!  We’re playing Iowa City at The Mill on  Wednesday, August 22nd, and a couple other shows in MN.

Playing in Two Harbors, MN - Friday, August 3rd

This Friday, August 3rd, we will be playing in Two Harbors, MN as part of the Fridays in the Park summer music series, presented by Arts on Superior.  We’ll start playing at 7pm at the Thomas Owens Park Bandshell (Yes, that’s outside, and it’s free!).  I hear brats and burgers from the grill will be available for purchase too.  The show will be moved to an indoor site nearby in case of inclement weather, which we’ll try to quickly get posted on here or our facebook page if need be.

THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO DONATED TO OUR KICKSTARTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As our bandmates slowly trickle into Minneapolis over the next month, things are starting to happen.  We have so much work to do still and so little time, but we’re going to make it happen.  We put some new songs up online from the album for you to take a peek at too.  I gotta go, but let’s talk again soon, OK?

Help us fund our DEBUT ALBUM via Kickstarter!

ATTN: EVERYONE READING THIS

We just launched our KICKSTARTER campaign, which means you can help fund our first full-length album, which will be released in June!  The way it works is folks who want to help donate to reach our goal get certain rewards based upon how much they donate.  We have until May 5th to make $1,500 (or more!), but if we don’t reach our goal we don’t get to keep any of it!  So please help us out!  Share with friends or family you think might be interested.  Check out the awesome promo video Mike Forstein made us for it!

Alas, Alas Kickstarter

You can also help by “Liking” us on Facebook (if you actually do like us!) so more people can get exposed to seeing what we’re about! 

Decemburr was kewl. And then the future.

Oh geesh.  That yarn store show was bonkers.  Thanks to everyone who came out to both of our shows while we were back in town, and to all the bands that played withs us: Painted Saints, The Cousins, Growth Spert, Brass Messengers, and inBOIL.  We should have some video footage and pictures up from both shows if we can find some good stuff!  We’re all sold out of Dirty Water EPs (forever?).  We started recording our first full length album and have bucket-loads of work to do!  We’re going to try and keep things updated on here as they slowly trickle in, but expect a quiet lull from us this winter!  I can’t think of anything else to say right now.

Hey dude, here’s a video of Katie and Drew playing at the Book House in Minneapolis back in January.  The whole band will be back to play a couple shows in town at the end of December, but we’ll holler at you later about that.
