We're on the Radio tonight- WPRB Princeton 103.3 FM

Hello! Just a quick post letting you know our live in-studio session we did last Wed. will be broadcast on tonight's Not Truth, But Effect show on WPRB Princeton radio. The station can be found at 103.3 FM

Of course for you non-regional lovers of radio, and tech-savy fans, you can stream the show live @ http://www.wprb.com/listen.php

The show starts at 5, and I hear our set will be on at 6. Tune in and support a really sweet radio station, and KPC; one hell of awesome DJ, who doesn't mind helping you carry gear to elevators from time to time.

That is it for now. Updates on past weekend, upcoming shows, and some releases and what not soon. Ummm, as in tomorrow.

Alison Lussier drew this. Woo-hoo.

Let's go to Maine/Smash Your Radio/Crappy Weather


Thanks for reading our blog folks. Here's what's a comin' up.

In honor of Memorial Day, we're getting in the car and getting the hell out of town, and missing all the super cool parades. I will admit, I'm gonna miss buying a giant pretzel from a guy in a red,white, and blue Yankees hat out of a shopping cart, but we'll manage to get by. Fighters we are. And in the spirit of America, we're gonna act as nomads and take to the road. Manifest Destiny. Cue the viking cry!!!

We'll be kicking it off Friday in New Brunswick at the Alamo with Sister Kisster (Dead Broke Records, on tour), the Young Leaves ('90s good-shit worship, on tour), 3Jane (new New Brunswick jams), and Eternal Fuzz (ear bleeding, good times). This will also mark our 100th show as a band! Doesn't mean much I'm sure, but personally, I'm glad we've stuck it out longer than that 6th grade stamp collection I took a stab at (such a pathetic collection of common stamps).

Saturday, we're heading up to Portland, Maine to the Coyle Street House, and hitting up the Fuck Yeah Center in Worcester, MA for an afternoon show on Sunday. We ice the cake with a Memorial day stop at Silent Barn with our friends Mattress, and Wagers! Tip back those glasses, vibrant patriots.

Finally, here's an image I found on Google. It looks pretty PUNK!!!!. I mean, it speaks on a lot of levels. Smashing an alarm clock. Take that work schedules, and crappy music. Anyway, this is a terrible segue to talk about how on 5/25 we're going to be recording an in-studio set for WPRB FM radio in Princeton, NJ. It'll be broadcast shortly after. So stay tuned for more. Don't touch that dial! That's industry talk for ya.

Thanks everyone. See ya out there.

Thank You Show Much/Setlist TV Video

Hey everyone. Well, first and foremost, just want to extend some thank you’s to the people that made our past mother’s day weekend an enjoyable one all around. First, the mom’s. Thanks for having us. Sorry we waste your time by playing in a band. Secondly, thanks to Mimi from Nona and Mark from Spraynard for having us in Chadds Ford, PA on Sunday night. Your whole town smells like flowers. Oddly amazing. And, thanks to Taryn and Siren Records for having us Saturday. But most importantly, perhaps, gotta thank Melissa & Paul, the duo we played with at Siren Saturday night, who then invited us to play a midnight house show in Berkeley Heights, NJ. That was pretty rad all around. Nothing like playing at 1:30 am in a smoky basement when you have to be up in 6 hours. And so many people there were really into talking about Blank Check, my favorite movie, dare I say, EVER!

Yea, that's not really true. But Tone-Loc is amazing in this. Step aside Bogart.

Ok, so here’s a show we’re playing this Saturday. It’s the last show at Nacho House in Newark, DE. If you haven’t been, this is your last chance to check out this sweet place, and to give it a final send-off. Another in the long list of this year’s funeral procession of show houses. And it’s a packed line-up starting at 1 PM. Should be excellent.

And if you haven’t seen it, our TV bombardment is up on Youtube. Here’s us on Setlist TV, which we filmed in April and was broadcast on CTV out of Staten Island, NY this past week.


5/14 @ Nacho House - Newark, DE w/ Mountian Dude, Alien Father, Tit Patrol, Hex-I-Am, Oh Shit

5/27 @ The Alamo- New Brunswick, NJ w/ Sister Kisser, The Young Leaves, Eternal Fuzz, 3Jane

5/28 @ Coyle Street House- Portland, ME w/ Grist Mill, + 2

5/29 @ Fuck Yea Center- Worcester, MA w/ Young Leaves, + 1 (matinee show)

5/30 @ Silent Barn- Queens, NY w/ Wagers, Mattress, + 1

6/10 @ The Main Man's- New Castle, DE w/ The Headies, Ba-Durr, Oh Shit

Happy May Sunday to the Greatest Mother of all-time. Marion Cunningham! She's helped make America's days happy, and has always taught us to do the right thing, by being a great mother and wife. What has your mother done lately? Exactly. Well, in honor of every other mother who should be doing something, we're playing 2 shows in PA this weekend.

Saturday's at Siren Records in Doylestown, PA w/ Dead Ringer and Melissa & Paul
Sunday is at Chadd's Pad house in Chadd Ford, PA w/Nona, The Fake Boys (MA), Paul Blest (DE), and The Snails. WHOOOO.

Email us if anyone needs any info. It should be rad times at Keystone High, which is what I'm going to call Pennsylvania, now and forever.

Speaking of PA, we were supposed to play at the Skate Jawn house in Philly the night of Saturday May 14th, but that show has since been moved to THIS Saturday. Bummer, we won't be able to play. Mountain Dude has also had to drop off the show, but Alien Father and Wisdom Tooth are still on the bill. So show up, and make it happen.

And finally, the GOOD news for Saturday the 14th is that the matinee show @ Nacho House in Newark IS still happening. Show starts at 1, and goes all day, w/ Mountain Dude. AND, it's the LAST show at Nacho House. This was the 3rd stop of our tour in March, and is such an awesome place. Send it off properly.

That's that. So long from Greatest Mom #2, Maggie Malone.

In Case You're Bored

Hey cool cats. Here's a video of us at Slaughterhouse 5 in Dover, New Hampshire from our short tour we did a couple weekends ago. Billy Raygun, The Young Leaves, and Shire also played this show. It was pretty rad. I especially enjoy when Kit's bass goes out during "Weaving" around the 5:25 mark. Oh, it's a B.M. show for sure.

Also, here's a new review for Under the Sink from one of my favorite blogs, Willfully Obscure. Such a good one site. Make a pitstop there for some hidden gems, and general oddities.

Cool. Have fun divin' into May folks. Don't forget Mom's day is right around the corner! You can pick out some great gifts below. Take care.
