We’re dragging summer into Chicago kicking and screaming, there are fits of glorious sun soaked days punctuated by days of doom and gloom clouds and rain, but at least its not snowing. Yet.
Summer means lots of shows, and even though we originally vowed to take it easy this summer, well, that hasn’t quite panned out – this weekend starts on Friday night, Katie and Tate are doing an acoustic set opening for a fantastic Bruce Springsteen tribute act, “Bruce in the USA” (www.bruceintheusa.com) at Viper Alley (www.viper-alley.com). They’ll preview a few new tunes and dust off a few covers that were requested via email this week, come sing along!
On Saturday the whole band will be playing all afternoon at Arlington Race Track (http://www.arlingtonpark.com/calendar/day/2012-06-02), but in order to see the band you’ll have to buy a ticket to the Binny’s Wine Tasting Event. It’s $25 for a tasting of over 300 different wines and food from some of the most amazing restaurants in town. Not a bad deal, you can of course see the races and shake your sexy hips to our grooves. Get there early, press for this event has been huge.
Then on Sunday we play the “Day in our Village” celebration in lovely Oak Park, where 4/5 of the band hails from originally. Get to Scoville Park at the intersection of Oak Park Ave. & Lake Street early – music starts at noon and we hit the stage at 4:00 – expect a bit of a wild set, I’m just sayin’.
Thats the news for now – new songs “New Orleans” and “Lovestruck Rush” are nearing completion in the studio, we’ll be shooting the video for “Lovestruck Rush” later in June for a dual release, we’d love to have any and all of your lovely faces in the video so shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like a starring roll in our next video adventure!
