we have had a wonderfully busy beginning to the year so far. in addition to continuing work on our full-length record (more on that later), we were just featured on the Rocket Shop Radio Hour where we previewed a rough mix from the aforementioned record in the works. you can listen to that here.
all this, some great shows coming up (also more on that later) AND we just submitted our video to NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert contest!
the contest gives unsigned bands the chance to play a Tiny Desk Concert, which is super cool.
oodles of thanks are due to our fearless videographer Dan Hoene and to KSV for offering up their office space. thanks guys!
our record is DONE and it has a COVER and it looks like THIS!
this precious beauty has been sent off to the fine folks at United Record Pressing to be made into something that will last forever. our kickstarter rewards are beginning to go out with the exception of the vinyl which will done in a month or so.
it’s been a long and incredible process and i’m sure i’ll get all misty eyed when i’m holding one of these in my hands. for now, we are so thankful for everyone who believed in this project and backed our kickstarter, the fantastic Brian Mullins who designed the cover for us, the incomparable Paul Sarne who takes our picture and makes us look cool and Mr Kyle Rose our everlasting light, amazingly generous and awesome dude, our knight in shining armor and keeper of the mini-fridge that shall not be opened. Ever.

These next four volumes of our “stuff we see at venues” series are all brought to you by the green room at everyone’s favorite place for gravy fries! These images are no doubt familiar to many VT musicians and we just couldn’t contain the weirdness any longer!
You may be asking yourself “why combine FOUR installments of your website’s
most popular only series? Isn’t that just madness??!!”
For the same reason some intrepid artistic visionary and apparently bored musician turned Homer Simpson into a dick monster: because we can.
