Thanks to everyone one who came out to The Lizard Lounge the other night and helped fill the room with awesomeness. Being that it's such an intimate and relaxed room, The Lizard is one of our favorite places to play and Friday was definitely up there on our "favorite shows" list. We shook up our set a little, mixing in a couple of older tunes, a couple of newer tunes and one brand new song and we couldn't be happier with the way it all went. Of course the only thing better then playing such a fun rock show is sharing the bill with great bands like Airport and The Wooden Sky.
Airport was fantastic!! Great rock songs complete with kick ass harmonies and my favorite...guitarmonies! Their new album is available RIGHT HERE. Pick it up, you'll love it.
The Wooden Sky left me speechless. Their set was perfect right down to a pretty outstanding cover of All Apologies by Nirvana. Their new album is set to drop sometime in the near future but in the meantime they have released (digital and on cassette) "City Of Light" a 6 song E.P. I can't stop listening to. Check it out: http://thewoodensky.bandcamp.com/album/city-of-light-ep
This Friday the band will be jumping in the old van* and heading down to NYC for our first ever show at The National Underground. We hit the stage at 9pm so please come join us if your in the New York area. Our trips to New York are always a lot of fun and full of ridiculousness so look forward to some of those stories next week.
For those of you staying in Boston this weekend may I recommend JPo Int'l Airport, Muy Cansado, Brendan Boogie & Future Carnivores @ ME Up. I'm sad to be missing such a great bill. All of these bands are awesome and it's kind of a special occasion as our good friend and occasional bandmate Brendan Boogie will be playing his "last" show as you and I know him. He will be throwing away everything from his image to his entire catalog of music and starting from scratch. It's an interesting concept and kind of refreshing in a way. I for one can't wait to see what comes next.
To clue people in on his decision to make these changes Brendan posted this very mysterious video:
Which The Rationales immediately spoofed:
All in good fun of course!
Thanks again to The Wooden Sky, Airport, The Lizard Lounge and of course all of you for making Friday night awesome.
If you have friends in the NYC area who like new bands and live music please let them know that we are coming to town this Friday and we'd love to meet them.
See you all soon!
*we have no old van or new van for that matter
