i'm currently working on getting us a show at the orpheum on january 10th. if i do, this will be our last show for 2 months, at least... here's why: we're recording. the orpheum show will be our 3 year anniversary show.
the line up for it will be (hopefully): CIO Can't Do It Daly's Gone Wrong The Filthy Nomads
then in march we will be back from recording with jon the skafather. expect a show at either brass mug or pegasus, followed by a free show at USF. a free SKA show at USF. for the USF show we're trying to get Exodus 20:17 and Weaksauce. exodus already said yes, so it'll at least be CIO/Exodus 20:17.
I decided to update the community with some old pics. feel free to comment. also, hope to see everyone commenting more often, and i will from now on be posting more site updates on here instead of myspace. thanks.

just checkin' up on you all. as you all know yesterday was our first show on a real life stage! we made some friends, made some people laugh, and made love CIO style... through music. thanks to everyone who turned out, and thanks to everyone who tried to go but couldn't make it. we understand that brass mug is a bar, and just a couple years ago i went through the same situation too. actually, when we started this band, i was having the same exact problems "Brass Mug? isn't that a bar?" meanwhile it's a really good venue. the people are really nice, the atmosphere is even better.
