We Hate When This Happens...

Due to an unfortunate confluence of events, we've had to cancel our appearance at Desmond's Tavern this Friday.  Our apologies to anyone who was planning to attend.  We'll be back on our feet soon though, with more shows to follow.  And of course, you, our lovely public, will be the first to know!

In the meantime, here's a recently produced music video to see you through the lull!  Enjoy!

Ella, Ella, Ella--Eh, Eh, Eh!

Big shout out to Ella Lounge and Turnstyle Music Group for a delightful gig last night.  If you haven't been, Ella feels a bit like stepping into an underground cocktail bar in WWII Paris.  It's got a classic feel, a little frayed around the edges, but all swank.

It also hosted a great crowd.  The place was packed when we got there, and not with people who were initially there for us.  But most of them stayed...and clapped, and hooted and hollered, and generally dug what we were up to.  There was a good feeling all around, onstage and off.

Special props to our sound guy and house manager too.  The staff often has a decided impact on the vibe of a place, whether they know it or not (and too few do); these guys were in the exact right frame of mind to keep things moving and keep it fun.

Now come catch us at Desmond's Tavern, six days from now!  Two sets, 10p start!  Keep the streak alive!

The Hurt Project Has Two Shows!

The Hurt Project has not one, but two gigs on the docket in the coming weeks!  See us twice or, if you're feeling cheeky, see us once, two times in a row.

The first show is this Friday, the 22nd, at a swank little joint on the LES called Ella Lounge. THP starts swinging at 9p. And the sweet thing is, if you buy the tickets in advance they're only $5, rather than $10 at the door. That's half-price blues, right there. Just go here to avail yourself.

The second show is one week later at an East Side favorite,Desmond's Tavern, on March 1st. THP plays a full two sets, starting at 10p. Come early, stay late, drink like you're Celtic, and hear some blazing tunes.

See you there!
