Couple small festival type shows coming up next week… First off, we’ll be part of Radio Mitchell College’s College Radio Day festival on Tuesday, Oct. 2 along with New London bands the Suicide Dolls, Anderson Family Picnic and a couple of others. We go on around 7 pm.
On Saturday, Oct. 6 we’ll be doing a matinee stint at the New London Americana festival, along with our good friends Dirt Road Radio (2:00pm) and Dogbite (4:30pm). Lots of other great bands on the line-up into the evening, too. Check it out here.
Please join us Saturday, Sept. 22 for the official CD release party for “Rave On: A Tribute to the Reducers Vol. 1”, a brand new 24-track tribute to our good friends The Reducers. We had the pleasure of recording one of our favorite songs of theirs, “My Problem” for the album.
The show takes place at the first venue the Reducers played together as a band — the always wonderful Rose Barn at the Eugene O’Neill Theater in Waterford, CT. There will be live performances from Reducers peers and friends Heap, the Dogmatics, the Manchurians, Paul Brockett Roadshow, the Rivergods (w/ Lauren Agnelli), the Clothespins, Jes Farnsworth (of the Backstabbers), Matt Gouette (with band), Blonde Furniture and Missy Roback will focus on Reducer’s (and Reducers-related) music. Bring your dance shoes!
Doors open at 6:30pm. There is a suggested donation of $10, and the new CD will be available for purchase. All profits from the event and CD sales will benefit the family of Steve Kaika, the Reducers’ bassman who died earlier this year after a courageous battle with cancer. Beer and wine will be available for purchase, and as always at the O’Neill, there will be free pretzels. More info here.
Ben, Nancy and Dan will be performing at the beautiful (and tasty!) Jonathan Edwards Winery in North Stonington, CT on Sunday, Sept. 2 from 4-7pm. Free show on the patio… c’mon up to the country!
