10/31 - The Final Countdown (cue music)

Posted on November 05, 2013

Oh yes, the countdown has begun.

Well, several countdowns actually. Shall we list them nearest to farest? Farest to nearest? Yeah, let's do that...

Waaaaay far in the distance we can now officially say we will be playing SXSW next year! So, when you get your Dilbert 2014 calendar for your holiday-of-choice present, sharpie a March road trip to Austin in there!

Significantly closer, we are so so SO happy to announce that we will be continuing the tradition again this year of nestling an NYC headlining show in that cozy nook between Christmas and New Years!  This year it will be on Saturday, December 28th at Mercury Lounge with an amazing band from Philadelphia called Toy Soldiers.  We will be sharing new material, peddling new wares, wearing heinous Christmas sweaters and there will be eggnog for EVERYONE.  Get your tix now, they make great stocking stuffers!

Then of course, a few countdown days closer than that, we have our annual Boxing Day Show at the Arden Gild Hall in Arden, DE on December 26th.  Back by popular demand, we will be rocking the two-shows-one-night format, and we're delighted to announce that we will be joined this year by two phenomenal acts, one for each of the shows.  Opening the early show (6:30pm) will be our friends in the excellent Brooklyn based band, Inland Traveler.  And opening the 9:30pm show we will have the pleasure of sharing the stage with fellow Delaware natives, The Dupont Brothers!   Tix go fast for this one folks, so grab yours for one or BOTH right here right now!

And lastly, we have the most immediate - a mere TWO DAY countdown to the very first show of our November tour with You Won't!  We kick things off this Saturday Nov. 2nd at The Outer Space in Hamden, CT before heading north to Burlington, Toronto...and on and on!  This is going to be a great tour, we've got new shirts, new cloth posters (they miiiiight glow in the dark guys) and maybe just maybe some new material.  Full tour dates are below and it's not too late to join our street team to help us get the word out about this tour!
