The Bay Area Native filmed a cool version of “The News About William” with just acoustic guitar/vocals and trumpet. We think the video, audio, and background came out pretty nicely…hope you like it too!
Sorry about the late notice folks, but we are involved in a drawing for some cool prizes over at the Hoco Festival website.

Just added… we’ll be playing a hometown show on Sunday, November 7th in Tucson, AZ at the Rialto! Love it!
For our upcoming tour dates with Arcade Fire we made some new double-sided posters that we’ll be giving away FOR FREE at our merch stand. Below are a couple cell phone pics of what they’ll look like (click for a larger size). Sorry about the grainyness but you get the idea.
Great thanks to Sheila Sachs for designing!
We will be playing on September, 24th in Regina, SK, Canada @ The Exchange. Come on out.
