Goodbye Old Year, Hello New Bullshit (2013 highlights to come)

Hey folks of the internet, and smart phone devices everywhere.  Maybe even some sort of digital tablet, you might say... or, you know... use.    Welcome to the first post of the year, one that's a breath of fresh air when looking back on some of the madness that was 2012, if you wanna measure it in full 365 day incriments.   We're stoked to say we've made it out alive, and hopefully you did too, especially if you're reading this.    

Anyway, thanks for taking the wild ride of 2012 with us.  Constantly feel like I'm thankin' everyone, but it is important, and more importantly, we do mean it.  Thanks to everyone who helped us get around this year, got us some grub on the road, and let us use their houses/apt/parent's places to sleep, shower, and... ummm... use the toilet.   HEY WE ALL GOTTA!   But seriously, THANK YOU!  You know who you are.

And thank you for picking up our LP that came out in October.  Good news is, it will continue to be available in 2013, as are most records that were released in 2012.

A small recap in pictoral memories first.
Here's a bunch of bullshit from our 9 day tour and this past weekend tour we just finished up.

 Mr. Kitty- Lexington, KY

UH-OH in Milwaukee

John Ford's Oscar for How Green Was My Valley   Watch it!

Smallest basement ever!

The Elsinores

 Kit's lunch for a week

Stormy, Steve's new street cat from Portsmouth, OH

That's how we spent most of our December, driving around in rainy weather, just dodging snow storms by days and laughing in the face of adversity... with soar throats and beer soaked guts. 

Also, to elaborate, finishing up this year, we did rescue above mentioned Stormy the cat while on tour in Portsmouth, OH.  He now lives with Steve, and spent the night sleeping in our merch box and riding to our MD show with us!  Thanks Stormy for the laughs, street wisdom, and for shitting in the litterbox, not the seat.

Finally, going forth in the new year..... THE PLANS.

1)Play shows
2)Make records
3)Eat decent food
4)all those things at the same time

We're pretty sure we can accomplish the first 3.   But we are playing some shows coming up this month with our friends Giant Peach from Long Island.  

1/17- Lulu's- Brooklyn, NY
1/18- Secret Art Space, Bethlehem PA w/ For Serious This Time, Peeple Watchin'
1/19- CT (?) 

Also, we're playing Cooler Ranch in New Brunswick, NJ with Alien Father and Slutever from Philly, on 1/11 @  7 PM

And we're playing the Full of Fancy reunion show, a benefit for those affected by nonsense storm Sandy. 


This show is gonna be so killer, it might just get 25 ta life.  ResXpect
Get there early.  It starts early.

Finally, we're doing a tour of the south in February and hitting the west coast in May and June.   We'll keep you posted on dates.  February dates will be up some time this week, and as always, your help is always appreciated getting some shows and with suggestions.  

We couldn't do it without you, and all the cool shit we saw and awesome new people we met and bands we played with are a testament to that.   Thanks.  See you this year.
