Our album has been released!
We are thrilled that our record was released yesterday: http://eurekabirds.com/. We started recording in Indianapolis during Thanksgiving of 2011 on a bellyful of oyster dressing and things continued to get better from there. If you don’t know what oyster dressing is, then you don't know how to MIDWEST like us.
The album was recorded in three trips to Indianapolis over 10 days total. The first two times, we stopped at a Cumberland, MD Applebee’s along the way to eat dinner, because the band has a Stockholm syndrome affinity to Applebee’s dating back to a van breakdown in Texas tour to SXSW in 2011. The third and final trip, I groaned enough that the band vetoed Applebee’s, which I think was the pivotal difference in getting four songs recorded instead of our usual three. You have me to thank for the extended tracklist.
In addition, we have two exciting shows coming up. Our record release show in Baltimore is November 9: https://www.facebook.com/events/1381466888756305/. We will have an expanded line-up of strings, horns, and extra guitars and keyboards, and you should bring an expanded alcohol tolerance because of all the new bars in the area near metro gallery for after-show drinking. The Crown! Beatnik! Club Chuck! Station North Development Corporation: cut us a check.
A week afterward, we’ll be playing Velvet Lounge in DC. It’s been a while since we’ve played DC, so we are very excited to come back and entertain you all before walking six blocks to get a half-smoke from Ben’s Chili Bowl, then promptly vetoing the idea because the line is too long, and the half smoke is overrated anyway.
