This U-Haul is telling me red pandas once roamed what is now the continental United States!? I'm afraid if we want to MAGA we might need to go back to the Miocene era. Anywho, fuck Trump.
One of Dan's other bands @teratogen614 just released their debut album this weekend. They started working on some of these songs when I was still living in Columbus with Dan, so it's been fun to hearing them go from basement demos to fully realized tunes! Check it out on bandcamp!
About a week late on this, but I just wanted to thank y'all for helping to make 2019 the best one yet for the band. We had a lot of high points: we released All Your Favorite Songs on vinyl (pressed locally by the great folks at @smashedplastic), played a bunch of cities for the first time, met @rhettmiller, and got turned into a comic by @wannabethecomic for Pete's sake! There were some low points too: Rabbitt's got shut down for serving underage folks while we were touring through Grinnell, and despite our insistence, @tacojohns has yet to sponsor us. So thank you to everyone who spun the album, wrote about it, and especially thank you to everyone who came out to a show! You rule. EDIT: I also need to say thank you to everyone who let us crash at your place, to @blindadamfederal for taking us on tour and letting ride in your van, all bands who played a show with us, and to the rest of the band for being great band mates! We've got some cool stuff on the horizon, starting out with a show at @tonicroomchi on February 13th. Bring your valentine! 😘🤠😘🤠
I shit you not, folks--we made it onto the @bsidesbadlands Best of 2019 right alongside some folks like Beyoncé. That's pretty wild! Thanks @thejasonscott for the love! . . . #allyourfavoritesongs #altcountry #rocknroll #americanamusic #chicagomusic #rootsmusic
While I was back home for the holidays, I found the scraps of paper where I'd scribbled the original lyrics for I Hope You Hear This On The Radio sometime in 2011. Really glad I rethought some of these lines.
We made it onto the only year-end list that matters: our bassist Lucie's most played songs. She clearly spent a lot of time learning the part @itsdevra wrote, and she fucking nailed it. @xxroadmaster420
It's such an honor to see our little ode to the shittiest dive bar in Iowa listed alongside amazing tunes from the likes of @joshuaraywalker and @kelseywaldon. Thanks to Scott Foley and Routes and Branches for the love!
Very reminiscent of early Wilco and the jangling guitars of Will Bennett and Wilson Brehmer are blended with the superb pedal steel of Brandon Bankes. Thanks to Paul McGee and Lonesome Highway for the great review! Full review in bio. . . . #allyourfavoritesongs #altcountry #rocknroll #americanamusic #chicagomusic #rootsmusic
