YES! We’re doing it again. Touring with our best buds Caddywhompus. We should probably just start a band with them at this point so we can always tour together. We’ll be getting raucous in a few cities up the east coast this October and we’d love to see you.
Dear friends, starting June 23rd, we’re very excited to embark on yet another East Coast / Midwest tour meeting up with our friends The Lusitania, Young Jesus and JAG periodically along the way. Click on the image below to see all the dates and RSVP on facebook. If you’re in New Orleans, RSVP to the kickoff party @ Siberia with Habitat & The Lusitania
It’s that time of year again. We’re really excited to announce our Spring 2012 Tour dates, during which we’ll be visiting some of our favorite cities, towns, beaches, and sandwich shops around the South.
We’ll also be traveling most of these places with our good friends EL CANTADOR from Mobile, AL. Give them a listen when you get a chance!

We wanted to let you know about a really exciting show we've got coming up in a few weeks. We along with our best friends in Caddywhompus and Chinquapin Records are hosting Chicago's own math-folk heroes Maps & Atlases on March 10th at One Eyed Jacks. We'll be selling tickets through the Chinquapin Records website, and each presale ticket includes an album of unreleased Caddywhompus demos. We're also selling a limited run of fifty screen printed posters by Houston artist Shelby Hohl. Here's Chris from Caddywhompus showing one off:
Yes, yes we do. Seriously. But you already knew that. We’ve really had some of the best times of our lives in Florida and we’re really excited to be coming back to Orlando, Jacksonville, Gainesville and Tallahassee as well as visiting Pensacola for the first time! We leave tomorrow (Tuesday). We’ll be starting things off right at Deth Row in Tallahassee so come out and show us your pretty faces.
We’re really proud to release our alternate universe tape version of Coast called “TAPES”. It’s available through Chinquapin Records as a limited edition of 30 cassettes and only 150 downloads, so grab it fast. Check out the release page right here.

Dearest friends, this Saturday is a very important Saturday:
- Sun Hotel
- $$$ New Grass Country Club $$$
- Native America
All these bands will be partying/performing at:
Mudlark Theatre (1200 Port Street) ((right by Krewe Du Veaux))
Saturday 2/19/11, starting at 4:20 PM, for a cause greater than Mardi Gras itself…
Two weeks ago, our close friends in New Grass Country Club had practically all of their musical equipment stolen. In a massive fund raising effort to help them replace gear and get to making music again, all proceeds from this show will go to them. Admission price will be $5, and cups for the KEGS (3) will be given for any additional donation.
The party starts early and in conveniently located right by the route of Krewe Du Veaux – this will be the perfect pre-party to kickoff Mardi Gras and really means so much to us local musicians trying to help out our friends down thousands of dollars.
We’re calling it Marleyfest in honor of the beautiful corner of uptown home to many of these musicians.
