Hey Chicago! Hey St. Louis!

We'll be visiting ya'lls in Chicago again this Friday night!

Friday, December 19th
at Quenchers
w/ The Safes and Ostello

2401 N Western Ave.
Chicago, IL 60647
(773) 276-9730

Let's see each other again.

THEN on Saturday:

Come out and celebrate the release of A Very Bert Dax Christmas Vol. 7 at the Way Out Club in St. Louis!

This will we massively sweet for the following reasons:

* LEFT ARM contributed a cover of Wham's "Last Christmas" to the comp and will no doubt be performing this gem in the flesh.
* LEFT ARM will be celebrating the release of the comp, AND the fact that it's our 100th show!
* The Ottomen and my (Jason) other band, Midtown Thieves, are playing as well.

Saturday, December 20th

Baby it's cold outside

Update time! Several things going on kiddies. Let's break it down by topic, shall we?

Electric Babies 7" - Ok, this vinyl shit is expensive! After a half-assed attempt at finding a label to help us finance the production of this sucker, I'm finally coming to terms with the fact that we're going to have to put it out ourselves. Oh well, this mostly means it'll be a little bit before we can scrape the cash together to get it rolling. If you run a label (or know someone that does) and want to help to help us out, drop me a line at southbentonjason AT yahoo DOT com.

New songs - Got a big batch of hot new jams in the works. Specifically, "Black Lane," "That's Your Problem," "Black and Bluetooth," and "Praise Me." We've been playing a couple of these live and they're really coming together. Check out these 3 basement 4-track demos:

[MP3] Black and Bluetooth (demo)
[MP3] That's Your problem (demo)
[MP3] Black Lane (demo)

Shows - Damn! We got a lot of them - and good ones too! 2 significant ones next weekend.

Friday, December 19th - We're heading back to Chicago! We're playing at Quenchers with The Safes and Ostello. Should be cold but awesome.

Saturday, December 20th - Saturday we're back home at the Way Out Club for our 100th show! As if that's not enough, we'll be celebrating the release of the Very Bert Dax Christmas CD for which LEFT ARM contributed a track. We'll be celebrating with 2 other contributors: Midtown Thieves (my (Jason) other band) and The Ottomen.
