happy anniversary, cadillac!

That's right, folks, our good friends Cadillac Jones are 10 years old (the band, not the guys, who probably average out to be a bit older than that). They've asked us to support the psych-funk madness this Saturday night at the Earl, where we'll open up for them and a smattering of DJs. We've shared rehearsal spaces, members, and even touring vans with Cadillac over the years, so we're happy to be helping them celebrate their 10th anniversary. Our is right around the corner(!), so we might be asking them to return the favor soon.

If you don't already know how awesome we are, check out the generous and well-photographed review of our last show from the good people at Evilsponge. If you don't already realize how fantastic Cadillac Jones is, then you must come out Saturday - they'll surely blow you away, whether you realize that you're a fan of psych-funk madness or not.

Fun starts 9:30ish, seeya there...


In case you've forgotten...

...we're playing our first show in quite a while at the Earl this Saturday, February 6. We'll be opening for Retribution Gospel Choir, a band spun off from Low. They got a good review over at Pitchfork for their latest album, which we've enjoyed, too - check it out if you haven't heard them yet.

To keep you occupied until then, we've decided to re-post a few tunes we've put up here before. Enjoy:

shameless hobos.

break the curse (old rough mix).

Oh, and while you're listening, check out a little amateur music journalism by one of our own, over at the London-Atlanta Cultural Exchange. Good stuff, even if it does commemorate the disappearance of two killer local bands. We'll do our best to carry on, rock people of the ATL!


back on stage...

...and we're excited about this one: We'll be opening for Retribution Gospel Choir on Saturday, February 6, at the Earl. No, we haven't gone all moralistic on ya - Retribution is a relatively new outfit spun off from Low, a band that's very close to our hearts. If you're reading our blog, you probably know who they are. If not, go check 'em out - but not before you dig the new sounds from Retribution. We're really excited about the show, especially since it's been a while, and we hope to see you all out there!

We'd also like to thank some of our fave local music bloggers for being disappointed in us - we'll do better this year, we promise! And we're glad to hear the Evil Sponge folks enjoyed what was probably our favorite show of 2009, too - at least if you only count shows we played. In that department, we hope we can up the ante this year. That's right, we've grown only more ambitious - watch out! The action starts Feb. 6. Seeya then...
