Germinating Not Hibernating

Hi y’all,

Long time, no see. Seriously, we’re sorry. Sometimes in life you’re better at attending to the details than others. But, we had a detail or two to share with you now so, here we are.

First of all, we want to thank those of you who showed up to our CD release at Amnesia in December. Not only was it, hands down, one of the best shows we’ve had, but we tickled the fancy of a fellow musician and he might or might not have invited us to play a show at The Great American Music Hall. Yeah, I know. More details as they unfold but, dear fans, we’ll need as much support as possible to make this show a success. (Cue you showing up!). Anyway, we sure had a great time at Amnesia and were honored to help them christen their new space. And to all of you who danced your fool a**es off, you are THE BEST.

We can’t wait to see you again soon. Speaking of. . .

Our next show is coming up. Come on out and join us at El Rio for Queer Country West Coast. We will be playing with Eli Conley and Dillybilly+friends Please come and support queer artists in San Francisco! We want you. We need you! WE LOVE YOU! Hang out with us and sing along. To tempt you, we will refer back to our blog title – Germination not Hibernation. Yes, if you’ve guessed what that means, you’re probably right: NEW MUSIC. Well, one song at least will be ready for the show, though we have a whole notebook of new stuff just waiting to find their cowboy themed sweater vests and step up on stage. But, we can promise at least one new song. Hold us to it, ok? Also, as a special treat, we have a super-dooper substitute bass player for the show. One Drew Althoff. And he plays ELECTRIC bass. Think on that a while, will ya? Yeah, it’s gonna be cool. Can’t wait to see you there.

Ok, one last tidbit. The Bay Area Reporter ran an article about Eli Conley and the show in this week’s paper. Thanks to a shout out from Eli, we have some new press to add to the list. Check out the Bay Area Reporter article. Here’s a link to the online version. And thanks ELI!
