I can hear the ticks hatching
Well, it's happening. We're down to just a couple feet of snow left on the ground and our roofs are in somewhat less danger of imminent collapse. After a heavy February, we took March pretty easy but are ramping up for April. We've got some new plans for these shows, come on out:
4/3 - Book and Bar, Portsmouth
4/17 - Dance Hall, Kittery
4/18 - First Parish Federated Church, South Berwick
As always, come play with us on Tuesdays at Sonny's in Dover for the open jam. We've had some great folks sitting in the past few weeks.
We are also supporting two fundraisers for great, local nonprofits. On 4/10 we're playing for the Portsmouth Music and Arts Center's Spring Fever for the Arts, which helps them to provide scholarship money for students in financial need. On 4/19 we'll be playing for and alongside Rock My Soul, a Maine-based gospel choir in support of Project Music Works. Their mission is to provide music for those in need of it who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford it.. they bring roots and gospel music to those in hospice, rehabilitation centers, jails, nursing homes, and anyplace else where people could use uplifting.. you can check our shows page for tickets, timing, addresses, details, and links to those organizations.
Our big news at the moment is that we are recording a new record in two weeks time. We've got a pile of new original music and some weird ideas and are glad to be going back into the studio. It should be exciting, or at least less unsettling than this link to an image of a tick and its eggs: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/17/Argas_spec_columbidae.jpg . We'll keep you updated should this prove false.
Other news of lesser note: our first record, Seedy Business, is officially out of print. Thank you to everybody who bought one, and, additionally, our most sincere apologies for any consequences it has had.
