'Tis the Season for Giving

So, we shall!

After a brief break to simultaneously sip flasks, shovel snow and ponder the validity of van maintenance (it is valid, the vote is in), we are back with a slew of shows to end 2012.  This season also marks our third anniversary as a band.  We still don't know how accurate the Mayans are vis a vis 2012, so come on out to any of these shows and help celebrate by buying us a drink or two.  Even if the Mayans are proven wrong, you will have done the right thing!

Kicking things off will be, perhaps, the most fun show of them all.  The German Club has always been a ball for us, whether we'ver been on the stage or just whoopin' it up, so a big shout out to Bryce and Svetlana for such a killer venue is in order.  Huzzah!  We always have an awesome time playing in the downstairs lounge, and the place is always conducive to what we like in a gig: drinking, dancing, and rocking, in no particular order.  It is also going to be an exciting night as we welcome Erin Passmore (Rah Rah, solo-gold fame) AND Saskatoon's Jeans Boots (Jeanette Stewart and band) to warm up the night before we hit the stage.  Check out Erin's tunes at then check out Jeans Boots .  I don't think there'll be a better way of gettin cozy come December 7th, so do pencil that one in.

If what you fancy is three full sets of killer diller fun from The Lonesome Weekends, head east with us to Bugsy's in Moose Jaw on the 8th.  It is hard to believe that after rockin' the province for nearly three years that this will be the first time we play in what used to be known as "The Friendly City".  You might say that the show will be "Surprisingly Unexpected"  More on that at .

Another first for us that we're stoked about is playing Amigo's in Saskatoon.  That place has had sooo many amazing bands play there over the years, it feels a bit like an "arrival" to get on that stage, yet it also feels a bit daunting in its own way.  One of us is flipped out about playing the same place that Swervedriver once did, a top 10 all-time gig for that cat.  I doubt that we'll get as epic as they did, but one of us will certainly be trying!  Find out for yourself on Friday, December 14th.  We'll be sharing the gig with Young James, the fine, um, young gentlemen who graciously opened up for us at our album release back in April.  Good, fun cats, so, why not leave it with a clip of them doing their tune "Family Farm".
