We're writing to inform you that an extremely rare occurrence is...well... occurring... We are playing a live show this month.
In fact, we're playing two...in the same week.
Last year, we had the extreme pleasure of taking part in Dromedary Records excellent Camelfest at Maxwell's. By all accounts, it was a great time. This year, they're bringing this great event to our favorite club, Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park, NJ.
The best thing about Camelfest is that all of the proceeds go directly to the Roots and Wings Foundation of New Jersey. This is an important organization that does very special work in our state - specifically, they provide support and services to children who age out of New Jersey's foster system. We are thrilled to lend our talents (as humble as they may be) to this wonderful cause for a second time.
This year's Camelfest is also part of Dromedary Records 20th anniversary festivities. To celebrate this milestone, they will be releasing a compilation album of songs originally released in 1993 and covered by Dromedary bands and other artists, including us.
We'll be revealing our song choice very soon Dromedary has revealed the track listing and you can check it out here.
But wait, there's more...
On Friday, October 25th, we will be rejoining our new Elk friends for RENT PARTY Road Show. This is when the Rent Party crew takes the very popular and well established South Orange events and presents bands at different lodges in the area.
We've played and attended Rent Party events in the past. These are some of the best places to catch live music in New Jersey right now. The bills are always excellent (again, ourselves withstanding) and cohesive. The sound is good. There's cheap booze. They're held in nice areas, unlike some of the unsavory places we've played in the past. The cover is more than reasonable (and goes directly to fighting hunger in the community). There's cheap booze. There's free parking. And more than anything else, the atmosphere just feels like a big party. This is likely related to the cheap booze.
We hope you can make it out to one (or both) of these events and help us raise money for some important causes and help us wrap up 2013 as we wind down our show calendar for the year.
As always, thank you for your support. We truly appreciate it.
