The official Kat Kastle release party is tomorrow night! It’s a free show AND if you RSVP you get a free drink. It’s been great working with Black/White Iris. They put on the free show and free drink thing regularly at the Satellite. An incredibly generous gesture in a town such as this.
All of us are looking forward to getting on the road and touring to and from SXSW. Things have been crazy lately, and nothing sounds better than writing and playing 64 in the van for hours on end. But before that we have a couple of local shows.

Free! And free drink if you RSVP on FB
Be there! Or be somewhere else.
When people ask me for advice (which used to happen a lot more frequently) I always give the same answer: “Wherever you go, there you are.”
2014 PICS. Taken in our beloved Chinatown. Wandering the freeways, and lounging in our space basement. All photos taken by Micah Cordy, and David Lekach. David Braun was the hype man.
We are playing at The Last Bookstore tomorrow night! Imagine. Us. Surrounded by beloved. Books. The best. My favorite book right now is Joseph Campbell’s “Hero With A Thousand Faces”. I hope it is in stock so it can see us play.
Gonna be a great show tomorrow night! It’s also one of the last shows you will ever see at Detroit Bar. The place has been bought by a person with little heart and little brains who will be turning it into a “Gastropub”. A Gastropub will not be giving you free anything, will not enrich your mind, and will not inflate your soul. You will only be able to exchange your moneys for food. If you have enough moneys.
Rant said, the show is going to be 100% free and wonderful. Be there!
A few months ago Chairman let us know that he was planning on moving to Portland with his girlfriend in February. We were very sad to be parting with such and amazing drummer and an even more amazing friend. There was no time to slow down, though, so once we got the news we set out to find a new drummer. Lucky for us we didn’t have to look far, just in the basement.
Our long time friend and housemate City Bacg has begun to play drums with us and has already performed on the recent recordings of “Kat Kastle” and our new song “Morning”.
Tomorrow will be his first live performance with us at the Camp Rimpau party. The transition has been a lot of work, but we have grown, and have become even more unified and driven than before.
Got a lot of shows coming up in early February. Each one is in a pretty unique place, so each show will have something special to offer.
We have been spending the past few weekends in the studio with Lewis of White/Black Iris (also of the band Fools Gold). We are currently recording “Kat Kastle” and a new song, “Morning”, to tape in his Bedrock Studios facility.
The songs are both about nightmares/dreams, one sung in the moment and one sung in retrospect. You may have heard Kat Kastle live, and we have attempted to record the song true to the live performance. Something we haven’t yet had the ability to do. It’s been a wonderful experience so far, and will result in a 7”, a video, AND another surprise which you will find out about when we decide to show you.
