“Who can resist free things?”

21 05 2009

Here’s what’s going on in the world of the EOB:

After some confusion about what day we were playing at Kilby Court, we finally played last night, and what a fantastic show it was with Dent May and Matt Ben Jackson (no one in the band is named that just so ya know). I recently met Matt Ben Jackson at the benefit show we did for the Phi Sigma Delta house at the U of U. These guys make up one great band. The thing that stood out to me the most was their great harmonies and general passion for what they do on stage. It really comes through in their playing. You can tell they were having a good time! I also stuck around to see Dent May, a ukulele player and band all the way from from Mississippi. Whew! They put on an awesome show. We danced, sang, and had a great time! The Ukulele seems to be gaining popularity as an indie rock instrument between Dent May and Ingrid Michaelson (another favorite of mine.) Dent May stuck around too and we chatted a bit about touring and the life on the road. He had some really great insights on life on the road. They are currently on a short tour just to go to a place outside of seattle called George, Washington. Awesome name huh? There they will be one of the headlining bands of the Sasquatch Festival. I wish them luck in their endeavours!

So, I know I’m always pitching shows hoping that you’ll be able to make it, but really, I absolutely love seeing your faces everytime you come out to shows! It brings so much joy to my heart that I can’t possibly begin to express. It means a lot to have your support to all of us. Playing to a crowd is so much more rewarding than playing to an empty room.

With that said, the Kilby Court show over with, we look now to our next show @ Liquid Joe’s. We have been trying, trying, and trying some more to get enough people to come to a Liquid Joe’s show to land a Friday slot playing with some really great local bands that have gained some great popularity like Drop Dead Julio, Medicine Circus, and others. We want to PACK Liquid Joe’s next Tuesday May 26th, and theTICKETS ARE FREE if you get a hold of us to either get your name on the guest list or get a hard ticket in hand! Besides, who can resist free things? Liquid Joe’s is located at 3300 s and 1249 e. Come have a drink with us and hang out with us! We want a tuesday party, and I’d love to see every one of your beautiful faces smiling in the front row!

Thanks so much for taking the time to read these e-mails! Really, your constant support is the reason we love doing this so much!

Have an awesome day and I hope we’ll see you on Tuesday the 26th of May at liquid Joe’s!
