Breaks are nice. We have spent a lot of time tending to other affairs and projects and are ready to get back playing live again. I’ll highlight a few below:

October 1, 2009 Metro Magazine 100 Party
I know that we are all really jazzed to be a part of this. It seems like it is going to be a crazy party! Mark Wheat from 89.3 The Current will be spinning tunes; Solid Gold will be playing a (guaranteed) scorching set;  Shuga Records will showcase The Unknown Prophets, Unicorn Dream Attack, and some other choice music acts; and we will be headlining the 331 Club. There is TONS of other stuff going on at the Ritz, Anchor Fish & Chips, Rogue Buddha Gallery…
–6pm, 21+ Tickets are $35 (advance) $40 (gate)

October 6, 2009Ryan Paul, Brad Senne, Nate Berhousen Trio
This gig is pretty exciting for me. Brad Senne is a personal friend and one who I have followed for quite some time. His new record, Aerial Views, really blows me away. Brad and I will be doing a couple shows together in October. I would call this a “not to be missed”. We’ll do some of his tunes, some of my tunes, and some from other musicians we enjoy. Also joining us will be Nate Berhousen from Breaksea Caravel…
331 Club, 9pm, 21 +, Free.

October 21, 20o9 – “Midnight or So” Gallery Opening at 318 Cafe.
All of our “official” photos were taken by elli rader.  She doesn’t just shoot us.  She shoots lots of things, including barns in rural Minnesota in the middle of the night. October 21st is the gallery opening of these barn photos. Not only will you get a shot at purchasing these prints (drinking wine and rubbing elbows with other art snobs), but you will get a cool night of music. Janey Winterbauer, Brad Senne, and others will join us on the stage and we will try our hardest to back them…
318 Cafe, 6pm, Free

October 22, 2009 501 Club with Molly Dean and The Ex Lovers
I have been to lots of cool shows at the 501 Club downtown. It’s owned by the same people/person who owns the 331. Molly Dean is a musician who was introduced to me by elli rader. I think her stuff is really really good. We’re excited to have her there with us. We are equally amped to be playing with our new friends, The Ex Lovers. If you haven’t heard this band yet, you absolutely have to! Not to mention the fact that they are darlings…
501 Club, 8pm, 21+, Free

November 12, 2009331 Club with Brian Just Band
Back home at the 331 with our near and dear friends, The Brian Just Band. I cannot say enough about Brian and his band. They are by far one of my favorite groups in Minneapolis and I keep on asking them to play gigs purely so that I can watch them again. Per usual, we let the hair down (huh!) and play our favorite venue as if we were playing in our living rooms.
331 Club, 8pm, 21+, Free

Also, starting with this blog post, I’m going to let you know what has been heavy in my music rotation the few days leading up to typing this sucker out.
1. The Beatles Remastered (Stereo and Mono) – It just doesn’t get any better.
2. Jim O’Rourke – The Visitor (2009) – 38 minutes of bliss
3.  The Pains of Being Pure At Heart – Higher Than The Stars EP (2009)
4.  Suburban Lawns – Self Titled (1981) – Jake Rudh reminded me of this record. It freaks my cats out!
5. Deerhunter – On Platts Eyott Island (2009)
