MAMA recap

As you probably already know if you follow us on Facebook, we did not win the Breakthrough Artist MAMA, but we did have a really good time.  Props to Wurk, The North Code, Hypheria, and Mars Hall for placing, and to everyone who played, showed up, was involved, thought about coming, ate pizza, thought thoughts, had dreams, breathed.

Except that one guy.  There’s always that one guy.  You know who you are.

Here’s a weird blurry picture of our craft sale merch table:

Craft Fair!

Merch!

Along with our new fame and fortune (come see us at the MAMA breakthrough artist competition!), we now have branded gear you can add to your car, your fridge, your instrument case, or your body.

First: T-shirts.  You can get one here, at Teespring.  We will also have some for sale at the shows.  We haven’t gotten ours yet, but they should come this weekend; we’ll post pics when they’re here.

Second: Stickers and Magnets.  Stickers pictured below, magnets are a clever combo of a sticker with a magnet backing.

Stickers!!

Use the contact form if you want to order some, and Molly will figure out how to get them to you. Ellie says that’s not worth it, and mailing is terrible, and we should just make people come to the shows, so if you want ’em, you should probably write soon before her more cynical view prevails.

Warrior Songs CD release

Holy buckets, y’all – we had a fantastic time at the High Noon Saloon on Saturday – it was very exciting to share the stage with folks like Gin, Chocolate, and Bottle Rockets, the always-amazing Shawndell Marks, and probably Madison’s most energetic blueswoman Kelsey Miles. It was an honor to be asked to play, and Molly is very grateful to have worked with Victoria Mederos to write the song “You Know Me,” which was recorded by CopperBox from the Fox Valley region and is on the Women at War CD – get your copy here.

While you’re here, take a look at the Pics page for some amazing photos from Arrow of Light Design.

This is a test

It is only a test. Had it been an actual democracy, the opinions you’ve just expressed with your votes would have led to a difference in the people representing you in the houses of law and power.

This is a test. It is a test of your will to change things. It is a test of the reasons you would like to change things: do they matter? Do they matter more than your comfort? Do they matter enough?

This is a test: are you still reading? I could bet you aren’t still reading. Who put this here? You can’t know.

This is a test: are you uncomfortable?

This is a test: are you engaged?

The calendar

You may have noticed our calendar is getting a little bit empty right now.

That’s because we’re working hard to get you some recordings soonly – some preliminary stuff may be ready to put on this site by early next week.  In the meantime, here’s a picture of the cool-looking mic we’re going to be playing into:

Ovarian!
