Last Night’s Show In Ithaca/Junius Is Amazing

October 11, 2009

We played last night at The Haunt in Ithaca, courtesy of the always cool Ithaca Underground (thanks Bubba!).

Unfortunately, Rosetta had to cancel at the last minute so they didn’t play.

But, after our set which started up the festivities, we were treated to the awesome-ness of Junius. These four excellent musicians are from Boston and will be embarking on their third tour of Europe on Tuesday.

Junius brought amazing big rock to the Haunt last night.

Junius brought amazing big rock to the Haunt last night.

We highly recommend them. It reminded me a lot of early 2000s Cave In, with heavy riffs, great melodies, and soaring vocals. So, yeah, go buy some Junius.

One other cool thing they had going on was an integrated light show that the two guitar players and bass player controlled through footswitches. We’re stealing that idea ASAP.

(On a side note, kudos to the sound guy at the Haunt. I don’t know what we sounded like since I was in stage, but the sound quality for Junius was incredible.)

Upcoming Shows in Bingo, Ithaca

September 6, 2009

After not playing a ton over the last year or so, we have several shows coming up in the next month.

On Friday, September 18, we’ll be playing at a very cool local art gallery called Spool Mfg. in Johnson City (just blocks from our practice space at the Goodwill Theatre actually). The show is the CD release for Summer People, who are always good. OneManRiot will round out the bill. Show starts at 7 PM with a $5 admission.

Next on the schedule, we’ll be playing good ol’ Fitzies Irish Pub in Binghamton on Saturday, October 3. Our shows at Fitzies always go late and are tons of fun so we’re looking forward to this one. Terrible Sparrow plus two more TBA bands will be playing with us. There will be no door charge and the festivities will start at 10 PM.

Finally, we’re slated to play in Ithaca at The Haunt on Saturday, October 10. This is another show brought to you by our friends at the Ithaca Underground, who bring in the best bands from all over the country. On this show, Junius from Boston and Rosetta from Philadelphia will also be bringing the rock. It’s an early show with doors opening at 5 PM with a $6 cover charge.

We also have some other shows tentatively scheduled locally for 9/25 and 10/2 but we’ll wait to post on those until they’re confirmed.
