Three Hours At Lovecraft Bar

It's official; we will be playing a full three hours at the awesome (creepy) Lovecraft Bar, in Alphabet City, NYC.

Thursday, July 30th, 8pm-11pm.  Come drink, chat with friends, hear some tunes, and have your mind broken by indescribable, celestial-born terror.

Blues from the lost delta of R'lyeh!

Silvana Tonight

A reminder that we play a great venue tonight--Silvana--a lovely restaurant tucked beneath the Harlem streets, where people go to really hear what the bands are laying down.  And the drinks ain't bad either.

Come on out.  We start at 9p!  And it's totally free!

This is pretty funny.  We like to change things up a bit though: not so much complaining, and sub in "harmonica" for "more guitar."  What can we say, we try to think outside the box.

From here.

Beth Hart

It seems we made a new fan at Mercury Lounge!

Ok, first off: we had a collective total music geek moment about this.  I mean, Beth Hart is phenomenal, one of the pillars holding up the modern blues scene.

After breathing for a sec', Marlon had a little etymological rumination.  'Hurt' and 'hart' both come from the same root in English, specifically from England, both meaning 'deer.'  ('Hart' is the purer form, where 'hurt' is the variation.)  So, this awesome, serendipitous connection may be simply a re-meeting of two branches of a very old family tree!  How cool would that be?  Probably almost as cool as Beth Hart herself.  Probably.

Once again, Twitter proves its worth.

Also, we have the jpeg to prove it.

Right On, Leftfield

Thanks to everyone who came out to the downstairs space at Leftfield last night.  The LES was rockin' with some high octane blues last night.  Toes were tapping and hips were shaking, and we're grateful for everyone who brought their toes and their hips out to support live NYC music.

Check out the Upcoming Shows page for where to catch us next!

Trashy Videos

A fan was kind enough to send in some video of our gig at Trash Bar last week.  Enjoy!

And here's our version of the classic, "All Your Love":

Sophisticated Trash

Ah, Trash Bar.  Rumors are you are closing your doors soon, to be replaced by condos.  We are very sad about that because tonight was delightful, and there should be more nights like tonight in the future, but alas.

Thanks to all who came out.  And special thanks to a certain Mr. David Leavitt, who rocked the drums on his very first time out.

Catch the next one at Leftfield (downstairs), not this Friday but next, May 29th!  We turn the amps on at 9pm!
