Tim and Joel played at the Breakroom last night, opening up for Dianogah, playing after another band, young Dianogah fans wearing those industrial ear-protectors. It was a good show, not many people came but it was good. Joel played an acoustic guitar, Tim played an electric guitar, they traded songs and told stories, they sat down with folks & answered their questions, they took a few of the younger folks under their wing & helped them through the tough times in life.
The music was good and it reminded me of how fun it is to rock out. I mean, they weren't rocking out - they were playing it cool - but it got me excited for this weekend's show in Chicago. Do you hear me? I'm excited! That counts for something, I just know it does. So again, we're playing on Saturday at the Double Door with .22, Ye Shinie Ghosties, and, I'm sorry to say, someone else, some music-playing person who's sponsored by some big record label is now on the bill. Four fucking bands! Shit! That's all I can say! Anyway, if you're in a band and you wanna be on Columbia, you should go to the show & try to get a record deal. Even if you're not in a band you should try to get a record deal. I will give a $5 bill - that's right, $5 - to the first person to score a major-label record deal at the Double Door on Saturday.
There is some pre-Chicago excitement, some last-minute excitement, something actually happening in Seattle (and we're not doing anything in Seattle, other than our usual ball-busting superman tricks, until December or so) - and it's a wierd thing at that: Dianogah is playing a show at the Breakroom on Wednesday night, July 5th, and they've invited us to do something. So to make things exciting, Tim Midgett and Joel Phelps are going to open the damned show! How's that? They still don't know what they hell they're going to do, but whatever it is I'm sure it'll be a hoot.
Do you hear me?
Tim M. & Joel R.L.
"Special Guests", which I know to be a bunch of little kids who'll bring in the younger crowd
A fine Wedensday night. Dig it!
Some of you may have already seen this, but we do have tentative dates & places for our tour in September. If you look below, you'll see them.
9-7 Minneapolis / 7th Street Entry
9-8 Milwaukee / Cactus
9-9 Chicago / Empty Bottle
9-10 Cleveland, possibly Detroit
9-11 Pittsburgh / Carnegie Mellon University
9-13 Balto or DC
9-16 New York / Mercury Lounge
How's that? I think most of these are fairly solid. The one with a question mark isn't quite so solid; the one that says it's in either one city or another isn't quite so solid either, but I don't think there's much doubt that we'll be playing the show, it's just, you know, we don't know which town exactly we'll be playing in. So don't let it phase you.
Hey, look what someone found: a video clip!
Did I mention this already? Probably not, I've been very, very busy. We got a new booking agent, and he's booking a tour, or maybe more than one tour but at least a tour and some shows, you know what I'm saying, that's what he's doing. His name's Christian and he works for Tough Guy booking. If you want us to play a show somewheres, send him an email!
That's all. Nothing more to report. Don't forget to come to Chicago on the 8th. I'll remind you again.
