Next Thursday, April 24th, at 8:00 we’ll be opening up for Foals at Bowery Ballroom in New York (6 Delancy St.) There’s one more special guest, as well, but we can’t say who it is. For more info or to purchase tickets, go to

We’re in Pittsburg right now and will be playing Cleveland tomorrow….


First off, thank you to all the parents who brought their kids out to the Living Room on Sunday. (See the photo below).That was certainly one of the most unusual and amazing shows we’ve played. We particularly enjoyed the Q&A session (particularly those questions on snow.  Thank you, as well, to the kind folks at University of the South for having us down in Sewannee. We had a total blast.

The Deli Magazine has listed us as one of the Top 20 Bands of 2007. For  those of you that don’t live in NY, the Deli is a fantastic music magazine that’s available for free pretty much everywhere in lower Manhattan. (However, we’re still unable to get one of those little chilli peppers next to our name!)

And lastly, we recorded 3 songs for a show on FOX called Fearless Television yesterday afternoon. Not sure when it will air yet, but we’ll keep you posted.

We’ll be playing tonight in Philly at the Khyber and then a bunch of places this next week in the midwest, with I believe, the Dodos and Beach House at one stop. Check out Myspace page for the exact dates and locations.

Hays at Living Room

We know this is kind of last minute, but this Sunday we’ll be playing with Rogue Wave at The Living Room in New York City. It’s a group called Kidrockers with Time Out Kids that puts on this all ages show…past performers have included The Hold Steady, Reggie Watts and our chums with Langhorne Slim. It’s all ages/family friendly but they want to make very clear that this is not just for kids. So go out to brunch, get smashed on mimosas and wander over to the Living Room at 1:00.
Check out their website for more info:
Here’s the website for the Living Room:

And don’t forget, we’ll be in Tennessee tomorrow at the University of the South, so tell all your southern friends to come out!

Once again, our favorite radio station in the world (or one of them, at least) is including ‘Opposite Sides’ in another one of their podcasts…it’s titled ‘Music That Matters’ and you can download it in iTunes or from their website: Support this station! They are amazing.

I generally wouldn’t think to post a link to a negative review of our record, but this one was pretty funny. While this writer isn’t exactly sold on our music, any review that name drops Brokeback Mountain and “raspberry latte” is worth a look. It made me laugh, anyways: latte.jpg

Boston is amazing.

Thanks to everyone who came early to The Lemonheads show to catch our set at Paradise last night. We’ll be back next month (at Great Scott) so we’ll see you again soon. Thanks as well to The Lemonheads for having us.
