New Works In Progress on Our Youtube Channel

This song was recorded & performed January 21st in Tyler’s bedroom as a last minute get together before our show that night @ the New Orleans Howlin’ Wolf. It had been written just a couple days before then and we wanted to take some time to work out some parts before the show. Luckily, Cody from http://www.goodmusicallday.com had his camera on him and managed to catch it. Enjoy! Let us know what you think

We’re playing Chinquapin Records’ Mardi Gras Chindig – A Mardi Gras Ball

We just finished putting together a lot of exciting shows this spring, and we really wanted to tell y’all about them.

We’re really excited to be playing as a part of Chinquapin Records‘ upcoming Chindig 04 this Mardi Gras! This will be the first of two nights at Cafe Prytania (right off the parade route), after all that day’s parades and debauchery have officially ended. We’ll be playing with our best friends in Country Club and Vox & the Hound, and we’ll be playing some brand new jams and old goodies.

RSVP to the Mardi Gras Ball
