Bellingham Shows!

Hello friends,

   It's been quite awhile since we've posted here. As many of you know Lucas has been undergoing aggressive chemotherapy for seven months now, and had a major surgery in the midst of it. To say it has been extremely difficult is an understatement. Yet throughout these months Luke has stayed strong, kept an inspiring high spirit, and of course played music whenever humanly possible. There has been an incredible amount of support from friends and family in Bellingham and beyond. It's hard to express enough gratitude. Thank you. Well, just this weekend Lucas finished his final round of chemo and it's time to fucking celebrate. There's still many months ahead of healing, possible after-effects and physical therapy, but that's not slowing down our man. So we hope you can come join us at one of these shows, drink a toast to good health, and symbolically give Lucas a pat on the back! (but PLEASE don't actually pat him on the back.)

November 3rd - Randy's Roadhouse! w/Stella Bruce, Ben Wildenhaus, Boris Budd, Scott Greene Band, more!?
 Randy's is a B'ham institution of sorts. Perhaps one of the longest running house show venues in town. You can expect a salmon BBQ, good company young and old, and great music. And it happens to be Randy's birthday. Don't know where it is? send me an email and we'll get you there.

November 4th - 2 shows!
 early- Ciderfest @Bellewood Acres I believe we play around 2 or 3 in the afternoon. Good food, good cider, good music.

late- The Shakedown w/Crow Quill Night Owls, Sansa and Shiri(oakland/nola) It's always a joy to play with our good friends! Join us tonight for the show we've all been waiting for. Crow Quill are no strangers to these parts, bringing the best hokum, rags, and jugband music around. We're really excited that Sansa and Shiri are in town. They do a great variety show with German cabaret, 40's harmonies, skits, jokes, tap dancing and more! You might know Shiri from Sour Mash Hug Band, and Sansa from the Yard Dogs Road Show.

                                                       Hope to see you all soon!

Thanks Bellingham!

Hello Friends, and a big thank you to all who came out to the Green Frog for Lucas' benefit show. Let's keep him in our thoughts and prayers while his doctor freezes the living shit out of that tumor! For real.
This Saturday, April 14th at the Blue Horse Gallery is a show we were going to play before Lucas knew he was going to New York. Our friends Whiskey Puppy from Portland are playing. Also, The Mighty Ghosts of Heaven from Portland too... actually the original incarnation of this band was Bellingham through and through. Since Luke is out of town, Devin will be playing a solo set as Nobocaster. 7pm, $8..
April 27th we'll be back at the Green Frog, doing our thing at the best damn bar around.
April 29th you can find us on the lawn in Fairhaven for the annual Dirty Dan Days. Lucas will probably win the cupcake in the beard fish throw contest again. We play at 2:30 in the afternoon... and it's Free!

2 Seattle Shows!

Hey now.. We're comin' down to Seattle for a couple shows, and we are stoked! First is Friday, Feb 24th at the Owl 'n' Thistle. Also there will be The Crow Quill Night Owls! We will likely all play with each other through the night and get very sweaty. The next night we'll be playing a free show at Cafe Racer. This time we'll be joined by Seattle's own Nettle Honey! So if you're anywhere near the Seattle area.. you best come on out and say hello.

Winter Stompin!

Hey friends..

We've been having a great winter so far. We were recently down in Portland for the Old Time Music Gathering. Phew.. good times were had, late nights, monster jams, subdued jams, biscuits and gravy, square dancing.. all the good stuff that we could hope for. Coming right up is the Winter Stomp! It's a first-time event in Mt Vernon, at the beautiful Lincoln Theater. We'll be playing along with Skagit county favorites - Smokewagon, and Portland's own Foghorn Stringband. This happens February 4th. Then February 10th and 11th in Bellingham, we'll be performing with The Provocateurs. They are a local burlesque troupe with fun, sexy dances, and great music! (ahem) This is a Valentines weekend event and is happening at The Radio Museum.

We hope to see you soon!
