04/10/09 Thanks so much to all of you that came down to the 11th St. Bar this past Tuesday. It was an incredible turnout and was great to see everyone singing along to all the old tunes as well as really enjoying and embracing the new music that we have.

04/01/09 No April Fools Joke! Dan and Brett will be performing on Tuesday, April 7th as Acquiesce for the first time since November 2007. They have been hanging out together and jamming on new song ideas and the timing is right to try and get the Acquiesce train back on the rails. Come down to the 11th St. Bar (off Ave A) and join them in what should be a memorable night no matter how it goes down.
12/05/07 Thanks so much to all of you that came out to our Sold Out show at Mercury Lounge. We as have always appreciated that you have supported us since the very beginning and that is why it is so hard for us to walk away at this time. Unfortunately Acquiesce has decided to take an undetermined break to explore other opportunities in life with the hope to at some point come back to the music that we love so much.
09/22/07 Well the wait is finally over. Our much anticipated full length album, "Creating An Atmosphere Of Luck" is finally available over the internet and will be available on iTunes by the end of the month. You can purchase it by going to the music page or also by going directly to CDBaby at http://cdbaby.com/cd/acquiesce3. In connection with the CD being available we will be headlining the Mercury Lounge on Friday, November 30th at 10pm. Check the Shows page for more info!
07/20/07 It has been an interesting summer for Acquiesce as we get ready to release our full length record this fall. Although we have kept quiet as far as performances this summer we have a few very special things that have been happening that we want you to know about. First off, our video for Starting Today, directed by Chris Cassidy, has been added to Williamsburg TV. You can check out about it at http://www.wburg.tv. The best part of being added to it is that our video has been playing on the video screen outside the Bedford Avenue stop on the L Subway Train every 20 minutes. It is seen by thousands of commuters every day. Thank you for all of the emails from those of you that have already noticed! In connection with this we have been asked to perform in Williamsburg, Brooklyn as part of the upcoming Day Glo Prom, an 80's inspired prom. We are excited about it and due to the circumstances we will most likely bust out a very interesting cover of one of our favorite 80's tunes. Do yourself a favor come check out this awesome new venue, which is extremely easy to get to from the Subway and help us celebrate. Hope to see you there!
04/03/07 April brought the band an excellent opportunity. We have been chosen to be the opening band all month for Arlene's Grocery's World Famous Karaoke Band. For those of you that are not familiar, every Monday night Arlene's Grocery throws a party where you, the audience, get to sign up to sing any of the over 200 songs that the Karaoke Band knows. The place is packed every week and there have been more than a few celebrity sightings as well. The Karaoke Band gets on at 10pm so we will be performing a one hour set starting at 9pm SHARP each week. We hope to see a lot of you down there. It will be a great month and it is definitely the most fun you can have on a Monday night!
03/28/07 It has been a great month for the band as we filmed our first video. The video was shot by Chris Cassidy (http://www.casspix.com) in Colonial Army Park in Brooklyn this past Monday. We are currently editing the video and should have it up on our site soon. The song that we did was Starting Today.
02/25/07 Our next show sees us playing a new venue for us in New York, The Annex. The guys from Interpol along with the owners of the Dark Room started the venue a little over a year ago. We will be the headline band for their weekly Thursday night party, the Stolen Transmission Party. This past year Stolen Transmission won the Paper Magazine People's Choice Award for Best Party. Should be a fun time as always.
01/22/07 We were just announced as the opening act for the Rakes Progress reunion show at Mercury Lounge on Thursday, February 23rd. Tickets for this show are on sale now at the Mercury Lounge's website and also ticketweb.com. We highly suggest that you get your tickets in advance. Also on the bill before us is Mad Larry featuring Billy and Brendan Ryan of the Bogmen. Check out this show for sure!
01/03/07 Happy New Year everyone! It is beginning to look like this is going to be a great one for us. Help us kick off the New Year right and mark your calendar for Wednesday, January 10th as we will be headlining one of our favorite venues, the Mercury Lounge. We hope to see you there!
12/27/06 We would like to thank The Bogmen, Secret Smiles Charity, and everyone that was involved with the fantastic show that ended our 2006. We were lucky enough to open up the last of three sold shows that were put on for the five year anniversary of the Kristys Smile Concert. We had a blast playing the show and met many new friends and fans at the show. It also marked the first time we had played Be Strong in almost five years, which made a lot of fans happy that night. For more on the Secret Smiles Charity visit http://www.secretsmiles.org.
12/12/06 We are very excited to announce that we were invited to perform as part of the special reunion show for The Bogmen at Bowery Ballroom. The show signifies the 5 year reunion of the Secret Smiles Charity show back in 2001 which was also the very first performance by Dan & Brett as Acquiesce. We will be playing on the Saturday show of this three night run. Unfortunately for all you Acquiesce fans, the show is already sold out. Hang in there though because we just added another show in which we will be headlining the Mercury Lounge. Check the shows page for details.
09/17/06 Hey everybody and welcome to fall. A season where everything gets moving again in Manhattan, including after a long summer break - Acquiesce. We are extremely excited to announce that in order to kick off Acquiesce's return to the music scene we are playing a weekly residency every Thursday for the month of October. We have been lucky enough to book a new club called Fontana's in the Lower East Side for October 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th. It is a really nice venue with 3 bars and perfect for a party like this one. Acquiesece will hit the stage every night at 10:30 but also we will be having two different bands that we are fans of open up for us each week. It is going to be one hell of a good time so mark your calendars now and come down and check out what we have been up to. Info on the shows page.
07/25/06 Hello all. There is some good news to report this week. First off, as you may remember, our song All Night was picked to play in the featured spot during the credits in the movie PUSH directed by Dave Rodriguez. The film debuted at the Method Fest in Los Angeles a few months ago to a standing room only audience and won the Audience Award of Best Feature Film. This week the film has its New York debut at the HBO New York International Latino Film Festival.

The film features some really big name actors such as Chad Lindberg, Otto Sanchez, Charlotte Ayanna, Paul Ben Victor, Michael Rappaport, and William DePaolo.
Next up, we know that you are all disappointed that we haven't been doing many gigs while we sort things out and finishing our full length record but Acquiesce will be playing our first New York City show since back in April next Thursday, August 3rd opening up for our good friends Booga Sugar, NYC's greatest party/disco band. Come down and rock out but don't be late! The doors open at 8pm and we will be on stage at 9pm sharp as we are the first band. Don't leave early though because it is rumored that some of the Acquiesce guys will be joining Booga Sugar for a few tunes. We hope to see you there.
07/07/06 Hello all! It has been a very long time since we have written to you. We have been hard at work trying to finish what seems like the never ending album. In the meantime we have scheduled two shows this summer to keep ourselves occupied. Both shows will be with our good friends Booga Sugar. Check the shows page for details. Hang in there because this fall we will have a new album, new website, and a new tour coming. Thanks for your patience!
04/10/06 Greetings from Ohio! Hello all, we are out here in Cleveland recording a few more tracks and listening to the mixes at Closer Look Studios.

03/20/06 Thanks to the many of you that came down to the Bowery Ballroom for the Charity Show. The show was a complete success as all of the bands were fantastic, the show sold out and we raised close to $9,000 for the charity. On top of that, the club informed all the bands after the show that it was the highest bar ring in Bowery Ballroom history. Way to drink up! A special thank you goes out to both Tim Cloherty of Booga Sugar and Brendan Ryan of Mad Larry who each came up and joined Acquiesce for a song.
03/03/06 Our next show sees us returning to the Bowery Ballroom on an all-star bill including Booga Sugar, Knockout Drops, Mad Larry, and Vic Thrill & Saturn Missile. Our good friend Tim from the band Booga Sugar recently had his brother pass away. This show is a benefit concert for The Thomas P Cloherty Family Education Fund, a scholarship fund being set up in his name for his children. Your support is greatly appreciated. Please check the shows page for all of the details.
02/02/06 Happy New Year Everyone! Well we know that it has been another slow start to the year for Acquiesce and it is already February but a lot of it has been out of our hands or hand this time. I guess we've got some explaining to do. December finished up a fantastic 2005 that culminated with a packed house show right in the middle of the NYC transit strike at the legendary CBGB's Christmas party. Everything was pointing for 2006 to start off fantastic for us. Unfortunately though Brett broke his hand only three days later on Christmas night forcing us to cancel our shows for January. Although Brett is healing fine now after his surgery he will not be able to play guitar for quite a while. However, luckily for us we have good friends that can help us out. For those of you that haven't noticed yet, Brian Repka, of Booga Sugar, has been filling in on bass guitar for us when Paul Daly left to rejoin the band FIGO. Now in addition to that, Brett will just be singing and Justin Lizama, of The Last Show, will be joining us on rhythm guitar. So mark your calendars because Acquiesce is moving to a five-man band and the debut will be a headlining show at the Mercury Lounge on Wednesday, February 22nd.
12/07/05 Hello all and Happy Holidays from Acquiesce! We will be playing a special Christmas Week show for you all at the legendary CBGB. Mark down Thursday, December 22nd on your calendar and make sure that you don't miss this one as with the clubs legal problems it could be our last show ever at this amazing venue. It should be a great night as we have a 10pm sharp start time lodged right in between our friends Fixer and Pennyroyals.
11/15/05 We are very sad to announce that Lez Zeppelin has cancelled the show at Bowery Ballroom for next Wednesday. However, we are also very happy that our good friends at Mercury Lounge are setting us up with a gig at the exact same date and time at their venue. So come out, support the band, give thanks for music, and do it all now for half the ticket price.
11/07/05 This should be an awesome night! Acquiesce will be opening up for Lez Zeppelin, an all girl tribute to Led Zeppelin that has gotten incredible reviews, at the Bowery Ballroom on the night before Thanksgiving. Come and give thanks a day early with us on stage at 9pm!
10/25/05 First off, thank you to everyone that came down to the show at Mercury Lounge last Thursday. Another packed show and a ton of additions to our mailing list. We hope you enjoyed the set list as it looks like all but one of the songs we played is going to be on the record... When it is finished. Second, there is an interesting interview with Brett and Dan by rock journalist Adam Williams in the popular online magazine PopMatters.com. Check out the article at: http://www.popmatters.com/music/interviews/acquiesce-051012.shtml
10/12/05 Acquiesce will be performing at a special benefit show this Friday night at the Canal Room here in NYC for the charity Change For Kids. There is more information at their website www.changeforkids.com. If you have some extra loot lying around that you would like to donate to a good cause we would love to see you there.
09/25/05 Hello all! Acquiesce is back in the saddle and ready to rock. Lets start off with a quick update on the record. Although we had hoped to head back to Cleveland to finish up the tracks circumstances have found us finishing up at Dangerous Music here in NYC. Everything is coming along great and we couldn't be more excited. The official answer to the question of when it will be done is when it is finished. Believe us, it will be worth it. However, to keep all of your Acquiesce urges fulfilled we will be taking the stage again. Our first show back we will be at one of our favorite stomping grounds, The Mercury Lounge on Thursday, October 20th. Mark your calendars and get ready to rock. Here is the info.
08/15/05 We are back in NYC again, for a little while at least. All of the basic tracks are finished up although we are still a long way away from being close to a finished product. Everyone in Cleveland has been super cool to us and we have made a ton of great friends out there. We have come back to NYC to play the shows out on Long Island this weekend (check the shows page) and then it is back out to Cleveland. We'll keep you in the loop!
07/22/05 Acquiesce is going to Cleveland! That is right, Mark Owen of Dangerous Music has signed on to produce a full-length album for us. His reputation is tremendous in the industry and he has recently worked on artists records including Ric Ocasek, The Black Crowes, and Sean Lennon. Mark has decided to take us out of the craziness of NYC and make the record at Cleveland's Closer Look Studios. We will initially be there for the next 3 weeks to lay down tracks. We are extremely excited and can't wait to get out there.
07/18/05 We are proud to announce that Acquiesce will once again make a pilgrimage to Long Island for a few summer shows. We will be playing at The Inn of Long Beach on Friday, August 19th and Stephen Talkhouse of Amagansett on Saturday August 20th. These are always fun shows every year. Come out and support.
07/11/05 Special thanks to everyone that came down and gave us another packed show at the Bowery Ballroom. There was incredible energy from the crowd as always! We hope that all of you enjoy the new 3 song sampler, "Threesome" that was given out at the show. The songs were 3 from the sessions at Smoke and Mirrors and were then mixed at Electric Lady Studios by Mark Owen. It is a nice preview of what is to come shortly from us. More on that soon? As for those of you that were not at the show we plan on having the songs up on the site soon. Hang in there.
06/22/05 Hello all. Just a reminder to everyone to get your tickets in advance for our show at Bowery Ballroom two weeks from tonight ? Thursday, July 7th.Our last two shows there sold out. They are available at Ticketweb.com or to avoid ticket charges you can pick them up at the Mercury Lounge Box Office in person. We have a great lineup for the night with Flylow, Marwood, and The Vitamen all coming on before us. You may also see our posters like the one attached to this e-mail all over lower Manhattan promoting the show. Pay special attention if you see them because Paul and Dan were put in jail Monday night while putting them up.Apparently if you get caught with two rolls of tape and a few photocopies you can get arrested for "deteriorating the quality of life in New York". Thanks NYPD! See you at the show.
06/01/05 We are very happy to announce that for our next show we will be returning to the Bowery Ballroom in another headlining spot. Tickets went on sale this morning for our show on THURSDAY, JULY 7th. Our friends FLYLOW from Finland will be the main support act. The other acts will be named soon.

05/25/05 Hello all! We are all hard at work out at Smoke and Mirrors studios in Williamsburg, Brooklyn putting together a new recording. No word yet as to if we will release all the tracks at once or spread it out but we are recording 12 songs. We are also not sure how the songs will be released but it seems like there are a few options which is nice. Hang in there and we will let you know as soon as we do!
05/12/05 Thanks to all of our new fans that we met at the Don Hill's show. Continuing with that good vibe we are headed across the Hudson to Hoboken to open up for our old buddies Billionaire Boys Club on their own turf. The show is at a great venue that we will be making our return to call Maxwell's on Saturday, May 21st. Spread the word to all of your friends in Jersey.
04/20/05 We are very happy to announce that we will be doing a short opening set for our good friends Booga Sugar at their CD release party next Friday, April 29th at Don Hill's.

04/05/05 Thank you to all of you that came down to our sold out performance at the Mercury Lounge. You truly could not fit another person in the place. See the pictures page for proof!

12/01/04 Hello everyone. We hope you had a great Thanksgiving. For those of you that read Newsday on Thanksgiving day hopefully you saw that we were featured in the Hot Local Band Spotlight. They ran a picture of us and also had this to say. "Their latest EP, Shattered, is a step forward, with crunchy guitars, propulsive rhythms and the occasional lyrical zinger. Acquiesce is still mining the vein of straight-ahead hard rock - honest, uncalculated and refreshingly untouched by trends." -NEWSDAY
11/16/04 To celebrate our coming back to the East Coast we will be playing at CBGB this Friday night, November 19th at Midnight Sharp! Our set is lodged right in between our friends Billionaire Boys Club and ILL Rocket so come out early and stay late. Hope to see you there!

As always, our apologies to those of you that came down and couldn't get in. Those of you that did get in got to check out a set filled with some of our new tunes along with the old favorites. Sunday night was also a great night but under sad conditions. This past Sunday, Dan and Brett played an acoustic set at CBGBs for a tribute show to Melissa Bambino, an Acquiesce fan that passed away in December after losing her battle to skin cancer. Special thanks goes to Melinda Cragen, David Lindland, Leigh Nelson, and the entire Bambino Family for setting up the night. A great time was had by all involved and a tremendous donation was made in Melissa's name. There is more info about Melissa and the charity set up in her name on the message board.
01/08/03 Well it looks like Acquiesce is not going to take the month of January off after all. We know it is short notice but we just got asked yesterday to do a fill in show. Acquiesce once again will be headlining the Mercury Lounge just 15 days from now. So gear up to start the year off right.
12/23/03 We would like to thank all of you on our mailing list for making 2003 such a great year for us. We met a ton of new fans, released a full length album ourselves, toured much of the East Coast, and packed our last show at Mercury Lounge. Those of you that were there got to see a 24 song set that went on for almost an hour and forty-five minutes. We are looking forward to making 2004 an even better year for everyone and there are good things are on the horizon already. Happy holidays to everyone and we will see you next year.
11/26/03 We would like to give a special thanks to everyone that came out to our show last Saturday at Piano's. It was an incredible turnout. Also, we would like to send our apologies to those of you that came down and couldn't get in, and also those of you that were hassled by the bouncers trying to enforce the "No Dancing" Cabaret Law. It is a blessing and a curse to sell out a show.

09/12/03 As we already told you, last Tuesday we snuck out to The Downtown in Farmingdale, LI to play two songs at their open mic night. From those two songs we landed ourselves a spot on 102.3 WBAB Radio Homegrown Live next Wednesday, September 17th. Here is how it works. Each band gets a half hour set.

First, we had a good turnout at Don Hills for the BeavHer Party considering the holiday weekend. We will be back there sometime in the fall. Second, the closing show at the Surf Club was crazy as always even though we almost lost someone to the draft(?).
08/25/03 Big News! This Tuesday we snuck out to The Downtown in Farmingdale, LI to play two songs at their open mic night.

03/05/03 Congratulations to all of you Acquiesce fans out there that came to the show at the Mercury Lounge in February. We just found out that you helped shatter the bar register record at the Mercury Lounge. NICE WORK! We'll be back there in April.
02/27/03 Acquiesce is playing an early show next Saturday night here in New York City at the Arlene Grocery. For those of you that aren't familiar with this venue there are three things you need to know: it is smaller than the other venues we have recently played, there are no advance ticket sales, and the show always goes on right on time. Make sure you get there early so you don't miss it!
02/11/03 Well it is a blessing and a curse to sell out a show. We send thanks to all of you that came down to our sold out show on Saturday night at the Mercury Lounge but also our apologies to the many of you that waited outside in the cold and wound up not getting in. We also would like to thank the Knockout Drops. It was an honor and a pleasure to share the stage with them. Look for us to be back at the Mercury Lounge in early April. In the meantime, we have a few new dates up on our shows page. Check them out.
02/04/03 It has been brought to our attention that advance tickets will not be available for the show this Saturday night at Mercury Lounge. We apologize for the inconvenience. Our best advice to not get shut out from the show it to get there early because it most likely will sell out. On the Mercury webpage it says that doors will open at 7pm and we are scheduled to hit the stage at 10pm. Also, in anticipation of the forthcoming full length album we have put the first song, titled "Starting Today" up on our website on the Music page. Go and give it a listen. We are eager to hear what you have to say. The album is still on track for a mid-March release so be patient. It will be worth the wait.
01/15/03 Happy New Year. Well it is official now. www.acquiesce.com is now up and running. Many thanks go to Eric Antanitus for designing the site. Everyone change your favorites list. As for news on the CD, we have finished mixing and are waiting for the final master CD to come back. Once that is done we just need to finish the artwork and get the copies made. We are still on track for a mid March release so hang in there. Finally we are glad to announce that our next show is Saturday, February 8th at the Mercury Lounge opening up for our friends the Knockout Drops. Mercury Lounge is a fantastic venue. You will not want to miss this one. Check out the shows page for full details.
12/13/02 Thanks to everyone that came to our Halloween show and all of our new friends on the mailing list from the two shows down in North Carolina. As always, we had a blast down South. There are new pictures up on our website in the 'past shows' page from all three shows if you haven't checked them out yet. Next, huge news as far as the much anticipated new CD. We have been out in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at the Vic Thrill Salon for the past few weeks recording a full-length 12-song album. Robbie Adams, who has worked with U2, Smashing Pumpkins, and The Bogmen among others, is producing the album. Right now we are about half way done with the mixing phase. We expect to be finished with the entire package and ready for release in March so plan on a tremendous launch party around then. New Years Eve - Acquiesce has been invited to play at the Ronin Partners' New Years Eve Bash. It is being held here in New York City at the Landmark On The Park. There will be 2 live bands as well as a DJ spinning tunes all night. Check out the shows page for all the details.
10/13/02 Acquiesce's first show back since summer is Halloween Night - Thursday, October 31st. Start off at the world famous Greenwich Village Halloween Parade at sunset and then head strait to the Elbow Room as Acquiesce goes on exactly at 10pm for an hour and a half set. Don't be late. There is an enormous costume party at the club that night (although you don't need a costume) in what they claim is their best night of the year - right in the middle of the CMJ festival. Also for those of you down South, get ready for us. We booked two shows down in Carolina. Sorry Washington DC, it looks like you will have to wait a little longer...
08/20/02 Summer is coming to an end and we are going out with a bang. Come check us out at one of the shows listed on the tour page ending with Labor Day weekend. We will be laying low for the month of September but we promise our first show back will be well worth the wait.
08/07/02 First off, thank you to all of our new friends on the mailing list in Washington DC. We had a tremendous turnout and a fantastic time down there. We are aiming to come back down in late October or early November so keep your eyes peeled... New York City - We are headlining The Elbow Room in Greenwich Village this Saturday night, August 10th. The show always starts on time at this venue so be there by 11 o'clock. Last time we played here there were a lot of angry people that only caught the end of our set...
07/31/02 Washington D.C. - change in plans for Saturday night. We will now be headlining the night at Metro Cafˇ! The new game plan is doors open at 10pm with Jesenk opening the show. We will follow them with a long set starting at ~11pm. Everyone spread the word...
07/25/02 Washington D.C. - we are coming back! We will be at The Metro Cafˇ next Saturday night, August 3rd at 10pm. We had a great turnout (and a great time) on our last trip down there and are looking for an even better one this time around. Everyone spread the word...
07/10/02 We are making our way back to New York City on July 20th for a Saturday night headlining show at Lion's Den. Our friends HATCH are also on the bill right before us so come on down and catch the two bands in what should be a great night.
07/02/02 Thanks to all of you that came down to the Elbow Room. The place was so packed that they called us the next day to ask us to headline a Saturday night as soon as we possibly could. Look for us to be back there in the near future. As for new news, we had such a blast playing on Memorial Day weekend out in the Hamptons that we decided to head back out for 4th of July weekend. There is one problem, due to noise ordinances we have to be off stage at midnight. Show up at 10pm unless you want to miss the show. Consider that your warning. Details are on the shows page. Also, special thanks goes out to Matt Desmarais and Eric Antanitus. Matt has completely redone our website and recently added a 'sounds' page for us. Eric came down and took a bunch of photos for us at the last shows some of which are up on the site.
06/04/02 We are back in NYC next week for a Thursday night show at the Elbow Room at a reasonable time. Mark it down on your calendar and come check us out...
05/22/02 Thanks to everyone that made it down to the Lion's Den last week. A special thanks goes to Dick Needle who took a break in his busy schedule to make it in all the way from Las Vegas. We will be back at the Lion's Den sometime in July for a showcase night. More on that later... On another note, if you are heading out to the Hamptons for Memorial Day Weekend, catch us this Sunday night. Info is on the shows page.
05/07/02 We are happy to announce that our next show is a Friday night headlining show at Lion's Den in NYC. Don't worry, they promised us they would have more bartenders working this time after what happened back in March. We will be playing an extended set so this is a show you will not want to miss. Get there early and be ready to go. Also, there is a review of a show in the most recent Good Times Magazine. Check it out at www.goodtimesmag.com in the L.I. Sounds section.
04/15/02 Well, we all made it back to New York from our first tour in one piece. We would like to thank everyone that helped us along the way and all of our new friends on the mailing list in Washington D.C. and North Carolina. We look forward to coming back down to see you. A special thanks goes to `Chavez'. We wouldn't have been able to make the whole trip without his help. A few brief highlights from the trip: Washington DC - going into the show the owner of the club told us, `no unsigned band from New York has ever brought more than 30 people in the door.' Not the case anymore. The place was absolutely packed and had sold out of Bud & Bud Lite by the time we hit the stage. By the time our set was done at 11:30 they were out of every kind of beer they sold and had only hard liquor drinks left. North Carolina - we played two packed shows over 3 days in Chapel Hill. All money from the shows went to the Ryan Kohart Memorial Scholarship Fund. We met countless numbers of great new fans and although we do not have all of the checks for the grand total yet we estimate we rose somewhere between $5,000 and $8,000 for the Scholarship Fund. Thanks to everyone for helping a good cause. As for going forward, we have lots of good news. First of all we have our first piece of press. There will be a review of our show from the Lion's Den back in March in the issue of Good Times Magazine that hits the stands tomorrow. Also look for it online at www.goodtimesmag.com in the next week or so in the Performances section. We will post it on our site once we get it. Finally, we have 2 shows in April in New York City. They are listed on the shows page. We hope to see you there.
04/02/02 Come on down to the Lion's Den in Greenwich Village for our headlining show on Wednesday at 10pm and see us off for our first southern tour. Also, our website is currently being updated and we should have new pictures, Mp3 files, and more up in the next week or so. All info is on the shows page.
03/07/02 Next show is a big one. Come on down and kick off St. Patrick's Day Weekend right at Arlene Grocery. Spread the word...
02/02/02 Thanks to everyone that made it out to the show at Minnesotas in Long Beach and a special thanks to those of you that picked up our new E.P., "...If You Say So" at the show. We hope you all enjoy it. As for new news, we have two dates in Manhattan in February. Check the shows page.
01/15/02 Hello everyone and Happy New Year. First of all, we would like to announce that our debut E.P., "...If You Say So" is finished and we have received our first pressing of the CDs. We holed up in the Vic Thrill Salon in Willamsburg, Brooklyn in November and with the help of Robbie Adams and Billy Campion we recorded 5 songs. We are very happy with it and hopefully you will all enjoy. The CDs will be available at all of our shows. This brings us to our first show with the full lineup. Don't miss it!
