It's been about a week and a half since we played the 7th St. Entry for the first time. Lots of bands have played there, lots of our friends have played there, but this was our first go-round. We're not the types to "play it cool", we were goddamn ecstatic. From the second we loaded in, everything just felt right. The staff at First Ave could not have been nicer or more polite. We were treated good, which I think is a big reason any band you talk to loves playing at the Entry (or the Mainroom). We played what we felt was our strongest set yet, then quickly got off the stage so The Farewell Circuit and Portage could continue the good vibes for the rest of the night. It was a great turn out and a great evening of music. We couldn't have been happier with how it all went.
Now we've got ourselves a tiny break before we play a show at the Kitty Cat Klub. We recently moved into a new practice space. Going to start recorded again for our new record next weekend. Matt's going to have a baby. We're going to write new songs. I might buy an omnichord. There's lots on the way. There may only be two shows on our calendar right now, but don't get nervous, we're booking up the summer right now. Both BEAR shows, as well as some solo shows from yours truly. It's going to be a good summer. Also on the to-do list is to beef up this website. It looks like garbage, and that's on me. Maybe the next time you check in on us it'll look better (or maybe it will look the same, we shall see).
Anywho, here are some pics from the Entry. We can only hope they let us come back again. See you guys soon. —Mike
