On Facebook Tiffany Anne has posted a number of photos from the Greenville Lindy Exchange. We played their Saturday night dance, and it was a blast. We’ve never felt such positive energy from a room that large before.
Here are some of the dancers who could keep up to our version of “Some of These Days”.
Our song about being perennially noncomittable (“I Don’t Roll Like That” from our EP #2) was used in the credits of the documentary film (A)Sexual. The trailer says it all (and you can hear a snippet of us near the end).
We’d like to thank Angela Tucker and her crew for using the song. If you have Netflix, you can stream the movie here.
The Northest Indiana Regional Partnership and One Lucky Guitar teamed up to make a series of videos about our hometown. If you watch only one, here the video on the local music scene featuring lots of friends.
It’s fantastic stuff, as we’ve all come to expect from One Lucky Guitar.
Our song “High Wire Lover” was included in the video on local arts.
Piradical Productions, who run the all-ages Hoosier Dome in Indianapolis, have put together their annual summer comp of Indianapolis bands. And nigh-Indianapolis bands like us, I guess, since “Black Coffee” made the cut.
Lots of folks already know this, but we never posted this to the blog. (Even after playing the release show!)
Lyndsy and I both appear as guests on American Music, the new album from Lee Miles and The Illegitimate Sons. The album credits read like a who’s who of our hometown’s roots musicians, so we were honored to be asked.
And so I made a list of some of my favorite local heroes. The people who are currently putting their money and their time and their energy where their gobbers are. Not so much the writers who cover the activities, because they’re pricks. I know this much. And not really the capitalists or even the musicians. The movers. The shakers. The balls-y folks who make the good times happen because they have that age old drive to improve their community. The real bastards of young. The sons of no one.
I’m flattered to have made the list myself. Someone tell Mr Fischer I owe him a fancy beer.
We have new t-shirts, designed by Jarod at In Case of Emergency Press of Bloomington, IN. We’re pretty happy with how they turned out!
We’ll have them at shows, but if you just can’t wait, you can order them from Chain Smoking Records in heather red or gray. (While supplies last!)
We try to support native Hoosier artists when we can, which is why we chose In Case of Emergency Press. They’ve done graphic work for Indiana-based bands like Murder by Death, Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s and Early Day Miners. You might enjoy looking through their portfolio of past posters, many of which are for sale.
Fort Wayne, our hometown, has long been the home of a vibrant and varied music scene. Out of nowhere, D. A. Fisher, an outsider from Brooklyn, was handed boxes full of homegrown discs by a coworker. We’re thankful to have a passing mention alongside the many truly great songwriters and performers named. Read his take on our scene’s history on The Reader’s site here.
