Hey there, did you catch Great Northern‘s CD release show at The Echo last Tuesday? It was fantastic! (Unless you were stuck outside in the huge line, in which case it was still fantastic after you got IN.) A big thank you to everyone involved: KCRW, Radio Free Silver Lake, Rock Insider, The Movies and Twilight Sleep, as well as everyone who came and had a good time. The band sounded great! And best news of all is that Trading Twilight For Daylight is now available in stores everywhere and “Home” is “Single of the Week” on iTunes! (It was also “Song of The Day” just recently on Seattle’s KEXP!)
If you missed the show (how awful), don’t despair, we’ve got you covered – Great Northern is also playing an all ages show at The Troubadour with Loney, Dear on 5/30! Hope you can make it! In the meantime, you can catch a podcast/video clip on their KCRW “Morning Becomes Eclectic”live session.
So now we’re all excited about Scissors For Lefty‘s Underhanded Romance, in stores 6/12 and on iTunes 5/29! (But of course you can preorder it from us now, complete with really cool scissors charm and autographed poster! Don’t ever say we don’t do nothing for ya.) You can celebrate with them (and us) on 6/13 at L.A.’s Knitting Factory, with Lemon Sun and Something For Rockets, presented by KXLU, Los Anjealous and Imeem. (What can I say, we got a lot of friends.) Or you can catch them on 6/15 at San Francisco’s Independent, with Lemon Sun and Maldroid, also presented by Imeem.
Until then you can get your fill from the band’s new EPK and fun little ecard. A hilarious new video for “Lay Down Your Weapons” is in post-production at Sharp-Ford, so we’ll keep you posted!
For fans of Goldenboy, Shon and co. are currently spreading cheer with talented Chris McFarland. And they’re also hitting the road with The Rentals this summer! First up is a Saturday night residency at Spaceland in July. Preorder your tickets now because the first night is sold-out already, and the rest are going fast!
And last but certainly not least, Irving has been updating their video tour blog from Germany! Check it out here. Amazing how those guys can keep making us laugh, from all the way across the world. We do miss ‘em!
