Winter is upon us, and probably upon you too! To celebrate, we are.........
1) Playing some shows!
2) Working on an album!
First, the SHOWS:
THIS SATURDAY, Dec 7 - Olympia, WA
Temple Beth Hatfiloh (201 8th Ave SE)
We're hopping down to Oly for a A Celebration of Klezmer and Yiddish Music with the wonderful Varda. They are a fiddle/viola duo who play klezmer and Scandinavian tunes and will blow you away. Please come say hello and/or tell your friends in Olympia!
Suggested donation $15, online or at the door.
Monday, Dec 23 - Seattle, WA
The Royal Room (5000 Rainier Ave S)
Make history by attending the First Ever Hannukah Party at the Royal Room. The bill is packed with musical treats including I Am What I Am, The Klein Party, Orkestyr Farfeleh, and Ari Joshua Quartet. There are rumors of latke specials and songs covering our ambivalence about this oily holiday.
No cover! Donations appreciated at the door. Reserve a table for dinner here.
Second, the RECORDING:
We are pleased to report that after playing together for an epoch (did you know an epoch is less than a period and greater than an age? In our case, two years) we totally have our shit together now. Namely, we mostly know how to play our songs and we aren't terrified of microphones. Thanks to this progress, along with the devoted efforts of Ross Kirschenbaum and the luxurious accoutrements of a sweet studio in Cap Hill, recording has gone pretty smoothly so far. We've got everything done except two songs and a lot of mixing. We are excited to keep you updated. See below for visual documentation.
On the radar:
Jan 19, Portland, OR - Opening for Geoff Berner
Jan 31, Everett, WA - Every song we know at Cafe Zippy
Apr 11, Seattle, WA - With Midwood and The Debaucherauntes
As always, check our website for updates.
See you out there in the world!

1) Ross working hard. Look at all those dials we didn't use!
2) Stef records fast, but luckily not fast enough to break the sound barrier.
3) The studio was well-supplied with ibuprofen and records of records recorded there that broke records! Namely, Lizzo's Truth Hurts, Macklemore's The Heist, and Simon and Garfunkel's The Concert in Central Park.
4) Proof of conquering our fear of microphones.
