What up peoples? Pat here -

So yeah, all in all it was an awesome time. The shows were great, the venues were awesome and the bands we played with were the shit.

On to other things....

So you may know we are working on a record right now. We hope to release it this spring. Below is some footage from the studio where we write, practice and record (The Music Shed).

More on that soon....

So we have a bunch of shows coming up including free ones all of February. We are really excited to be a part of Foburg music festival this march in New Orleans as well as our SXSW trip this year. In between those gigs we have a special one that means a lot to us. We are opening for Caspian & Arms and Sleepers when they stop in New Orleans Tuesday March 16th @ The Dragon's Den. This is the poster below (compliments of Credible).

I am huge fans of these two bands. They put out 2 of my favorite records of last year.
