Is it really July? Wait, it's approaching the middle of July, and I am now getting around to writing? So much has been happening, I'm having to write this in short stints.
First things first!
The Januariez would like to formally introduce its new rhythm section!
Meet Gorilla J on bass and Reno January on drums!
Hooray! We love them so!
As mentioned in the previous newsletter, after Holly and I returned from LA, we received a phone call from the bass player of A Sic End asking us if we were still looking for members. Shortly after that phone call, we began having regular practices. Now we've got a set down and we're beginning to write together. It's really amazing how this is coming together. We are all so excited.
So now, you must come out and see us live!
This Wednesday July 13, at Darrell's Closed Mic and Sad Hour, we are playing a short little warm up set. This is the place we all met, so it's the place for us to try things out and get comfortable. We'll be there around 8:30.
Our friends at Critical Sun Recordings have asked us to join the bill for their Band Crawl, August 6th. All proceeds benefit Music Aid Northwest. We'll be joining our friends the Furniture Girls as well as a few other great bands! Should be a killer afternoon and evening of music, fun, and raising money for music education across the Northwest.
Check the flier! Surely you can make ONE of these, since we are playing THREE venues in 2 hours!
We've also been invited to play with the Furniture Girls in Yakima, August 26. I know there's a handful of you in Eastern Washington, so here's your chance to come out and help us tear it up!
Until then, we'll be working on getting some new photos, and we're gonna film the Darrell's open mic. So keep and eye out! We hope you're as stoked as we are!
