Happy late New Year! We want to give a special thanks and hello to all our new fans! Thanks for the love! It's snowing, and we've been practicing, recording, and making big plans for 2012!
The fun begins January 28th at Darrell's Tavern in Shoreline for J-kNee's birthday party show! We are playing with our friend and killer musician, Reji Lefluer, and another secret special guest! You have to come to the show to find out who it is! We start around 9 or 9:30, and there is a small cover to help pay the musicians. Hope to see you there!
Now, for those of you in the South, we will be headed your way in March! Yes! You heard us right! We have been asked to attend the Critical Sun Showcase in Austin during SXSW. We're really excited about this opportunity! The insanity begins March 8th when we play the SXSW send off show at The Sunset Tavern.Then we carry the madness across the sound to our friends in Bremerton at the Hi-Fidelity Lounge on March 9th. Then we hit the road!
The Jackalope will be at its mercy with the Critical Sun Showcase on March 14th! We will be playing with Furniture Girls, Sightseer, In Cahoots, and Rob Marcus. Now mark your calendars for Saturday March 17th! We'll be headed to J-kNee's hometown of Little Rock, AR to play Downtown Music Hallwith our friends Glittercore and The Many Persian Z's. For those of you who grew up in Little Rock,Glittercore features Paul Bowling from Trusty and Shayne Grey of Techno Squid Eats Parliament. The Many Persian Z's features none other than J-kNee's oldest friend, Jonathan Teague. It should be a night of complete old school shenanigans.
Now the hard part. We're geting ready to lauch a kickstarter page to help us raise money for our trip. We are poor musicians, and we have everything covered except our flights (it is much cheaper to fly than rent a van) .We have never done this before, but we are asking for donations to help us cover the cost of our flights. We need about $1000. Thanks to everyone who has donated already! Everyone else, please consider donating! We really want to play for everyone! Every bit helps!In return for your support we can/will do the following:$25 donation gets you a signed CD and on the guest list to one of our shows.$50 donation gets you all of the above and a copy of our upcoming CD.$100 donation gets you all of the above and you can get on stage and sing with us.$250 donation gets you all of the above, plus J-kNee will come to your house and cook you dinner.$500 donation gets you all of the above, and we will play a party for you.Aside from playng Austin and Little Rock, We are also working on other possible dates in other nearby towns.

Finally, we told y'all about us recording with Critical Sun. We are moving along as planned, working on guitar and vocals. The plan is to have the new album ready to go in March before we hit the road!

Until next time!
