WE’VE GOT A NEW SINGLE COMING OUT IN A WEEK!
It’s a super-limited, double-sided picture plexi disc of new song “86’d in ‘03” b/w our cover of “Bridgeport Lathe.” The b-side tune was originally written and released in 1980 by criminally underrated Boston jittery pop group The 2x4s—check ‘em out.

Just 75 copies of these heavy-ass tiles exist, some of which we’ll have at our release show next Friday. The remainder are up for pre-order at People In a Position To Know Records right NOW. Mike of PIAPTK lathe-cut these suckers by hand; his commitment to musical art objects is pretty impressive, so check out his other releases while you’re over there!

Our only show this month! Should be a good time. It’ll be our new guitarist Luke’s 2nd show and Kate will be joining us again, this time on bass (Emeen is moving to LA and we are gonna miss him dearly).

Our Movie Debut

If you wanna hear the intro to “Boys to Men,” and you don’t have a copy of our record yet, you can rent the indie comedy Awful Nice on iTunes or stream it on Netflix. It’s about 53 minutes in, but don’t skip the first part cos our boy Christopher Meloni is in this joint:

Flyer by Ben
If you haven’t heard yet, our buddies in Pretty & Nice were ROBBED last week after someone broke into their trailer. The good news is that Justin from Earthquake Party has been working to put together a benefit show for them, and it’s happening in less than a week!
We’re requesting a SIGNAL BOOST on this post, both to get people out to the show, and to have people keeping a look out for the gear on the list posted below. If you see any of these items on Craigslist or eBay, or in consignment shops or music stores that sell used equipment, hit up our dudes in P&N.

I made this flyer and I’m pretty happy with how it came out. 
More importantly, this is a SIGNAL BOOST to raise funds for our friends in Pretty & Nice. You should buy their new record to help them out, too. It’s an awesome slice of smart, herky-jerky aggro-nerd-pop reminiscent of Brainiac, with some weird dance punk/new wavey tendencies. Hard to describe (more fun to listen to).

Tonight’s the night!
