A NEW SIGN
Last year… we had a sign. It had our name on it and despite the fact that we have no idea where we left it, there was a firm belief that it would find it’s way home. That didn’t happen. A sign is on order and we expect to be sporting our nifty new placard at upcoming shows. Here’s a sneak peak:

WHERE: WGBH, 1 Guest St., Brighton, MA
WHAT: WGBH FunFest - A Day of Ice Cream and Music and other cool stuff.
IF RAIN: The band is covered. I don’t think they ever cancel.
WHAT ELSE: We’ve played this event several times now and it is a seriously high energy event for us. I don’t think it’s just the ice cream flowing through our veins.

WHAT: Arlington Alive Summer Arts Block Party

PARK: In the big lot. There is an entrance across from the Regent Theatre at 7 Medford St.
IF RAIN: We play on Sunday, July 13. Same bat time.
WHAT ELSE: You might consider bringing some folding chairs if you hope to sit. There is room for the kids to run (and skip). There is coffee nearby (Starbucks and Kickstand Cafe), ice cream (Chili Cow) and a frozen yogurt shop across the street.
It’s the season! Come on out to a show if you can.
