Thanks to all of you wonderful people, we won H&M’s Battle of the Bands! They’re flying us out to New York this week to play their Fashion Against AIDS Launch Party. Last night we attended Paper Magazine’s 10th Annual Beautiful People Party as H&M’s guests of honor at the Standard Hotel in Hollywood. It was one hell of a night and all thanks go to you for voting.
Extra big special thanks go to the rakishly good-looking Brandon Nicholas and of course the acting talents of Michael Karlin. The video for “Ponzi Scheme” didn’t just materialize out of nowhere: the hard work of all our friends and family under Brandon’s leadership made it happen. For that, we are eternally grateful for all the support everyone has given us in the last year.
In other news, we are in negotiations now to go back into the studio to record some new music for you. More info to come once it’s all official. Plus we’ll be announcing some long-awaited west coast tour dates soon so check back often. Cheers!
Hey everyone! Come check us out at Hotel Cafe tomorrow night - it’s going to be a very special night since it’s our first time there. Show us some love and support by bringing your dancing shoes and participating in a recklessly good time. Doors at 10pm. See you there!
Lots of great stuff happening around here. Our music video for “Ponzi Scheme” directed by the charming Brandon Nicholas is almost ready. We’re working on setting up a sweet premier party for it. Meanwhile, we’re currently in pre-production for “85 Bears,” directed by Jarrett Lee Conaway. Jarrett’s an extremely talented guy whose movies you should absolutely check out right now. Oh and we’ll also be doing another photo shoot later this month.
In March, we’ll be playing a junior residency at Molly Malone’s with our good friends in Magnolia Memoir. Check us out March 16th and 30th for some really special shows. After that you can look forward to seeing us at Hotel Cafe in April. We’ll announce a date once it’s closer. We’re really excited about these shows so plan for some big surprises.
The other big news is that we have tentative plans to go back into the studio soon. Nothing official yet, but we want to get you guys some more new music as soon as humanly possible. We’ll let you know as soon as we do, in the meantime, see you guys next month at Molly’s!

Our music video for “Ponzi Scheme” is almost finished! Director Brandon Nicholas is adding the last touches on it as we speak. We’ll announce a release date and a location for the premier party sometime next week. Stay tuned.
Many many thanks to everyone who came out to the show on Tuesday. And of course, special thanks go to Magnolia Memoir for inviting us to play with them. If you missed it, you can come check us out this Friday at the Verity Room in Canoga Park. It’s gonna be a killer show!
