It pains us to have to say this, but Ben is leaving the band to move to Vancouver for bigger, better, more organic and bohemian things. He's been with us since the beginning, over four years ago, and he continues to humble us with his songwriting, as if his talent for drumming and plain ol' friendship weren't enough. We've still got a couple weeks left with him, and we're working on something special that we hope to be able to share with you soon. Thank you to everyone who helped to send him off at his final show with us at Bourbon & Branch last week. His move to the 'couv is bittersweet...We're going to miss him badly, but we're beyond grateful for the music we made together and, more importantly, for the friendship born out of it. Here are some videos of his farewell performance. Send him some love!

Hey sk8er bois and grrrls, our album Everything is now available for streaming and download on Spotify, iTunes, CDBaby, and Bandcamp. Check it out. Or say "c u l8r boi". Either is fine by us.
It's an album. For you. By us. Our first. Finally.
On Friday, January 6, come grab a copy at our show at Boot & Saddle.
Rest easy, Gene. You were both too wild and too sweet for this earth. The world lost our namesake this week, yet it gained a Gene Wildest/Electric Six team-up at MilkBoy in Philly on October 4th. So there's that. All right, we know it can't completely ease our collective grieving, but it's a start, right? Get your tickets here. We're excited for this one.
Here's the first of a handful of recordings of songs we've been performing over the last six months. Give it a loud listen.
In other news, we've got a couple of shows lined up for spring, but in the meantime, we're hunkering down on writing a new batch of rad tunes and getting more shows on the books. Get into touch if you want us to rock a house party, funeral, bris, etc.
We've had a lot of fun this past month. Thanks to everyone who came out to the shows. Check out photos from XO Lounge here (one pictured above) and videos from Kung Fu Necktie here (one featured below). In addition to playing our handful of new songs, we've been making an effort to vary our sets from show to show to keep your whiskers tingling. We'll be continuing this trend at our newly added show this Thursday, November 20th, at The Fire, playing the rest of our catalogue that hasn't seen the light the day in months. Check the Shows page for more details about that and our dates at Desmond's Tavern in NYC (12/20) and at Dobbs (1/10).
We're coming out of our summer hibernation, tanned and hungry for pumpkin-flavored crap, for hecka shows, and for you to hear the handful of new songs we've been working on. We'll be at Kung Fu Necktie opening up for The Noise FM and Archie Powell & The Exports on October 21, at XO Lounge on November 7, and on December 20, we'll be playing New York City for the first time at Desmond's Tavern in Manhattan. There's a lot to be excited about for each gig, and hopefully, we'll be adding some more very soon. Check our Shows page for details.
We've got a couple shows coming up in July that we're really excited about. We'll be returning to Dobbs on Saturday, July 19 (the last time we were there was a goddamn blast), and we'll be making our debut at Kung Fu Necktie on Wednesday, July 30 with our friends Devil's Triangle. We've been wanting to play that stage for a while, so we're very much looking forward to that one, as well. Check out our Shows page for more info.
