We are pounding away at our songs. Getting them ready for YOU! Lake Harriet September 10.

The band have put a full-court press on Matt. We have him trapped in his back court and he’s responding with the full-length court, baseball-style pass of recording the new record THIS FALL! You are my hero, Matt! The people in the crowd are dumping their popcorn and cokes, holding their breath in anticipation of an inevitable SCORE!
No, let’s admit that it would be stupid to predict anything regarding our output. Probably it will be three years before you actually SEE ANYTHING. But the songs are shaping up nicely. The band is pivoting in unison. The sounds are going to be great. The band is psyched. We are preparing for magic (I’m starting the Harry Potter series right now, so I’m all about MAGIC). I can see no reason that we won’t make a record before Christmas. But admittedly, I’m also ready to be disappointed. Planning on it, actually. Old habits and all that…
Prior to recording we’re going to play a show at The Lake Harriet Bandshell. It’s a Music and Movie sort of thing. First music and then, by the light of the moon, a movie. You can all blame me for choosing a movie with subtitles, but perhaps you’ll want to raise me on your shoulders after seeing The Umbrellas of Cherbourg. The entire movie is sung. Every line. Bring a blanket, and bring a hankie (it’s a weeper), but please, in the spirit of hopefulness, don’t bring an umbrella.
Can’t wait to see you all!
