Shows, shows, shows — May 28th, June 9th, June 24th

New shows to announce. These will be live and with the full band, no acoustic-ness. Loud-ass guitars, drums...the whole shebang. We'll even debut some "new" songs.

Fuckin' A.

Lyrics of the Day: "JHC"

young boy is amazed at the power of flight 
young boy is grinning at his flapping wings 
young boy, he thinks he'll grab the sun 
young boy's dreams are fiction 
he still thinks he's an eagle 

daddy-daddy daedalus, he's never there 
killed himself, a hurricane of shame 
momma and minos, you know they tried 
young boy melts wax wings to his back 
he still thinks he's an eagle 

the sunshine was special on his fingertips 
he braced himself, yeah, felt it on his lips 
and the feathers tore away 
meanwhile, kids back home, stare at the sky 
always knew what he didn't, always knew 
he could never ever 
he could never ever

Upcoming dates and other news

I'll keep it short and to the point as you probably are ready to enjoy the rest of either Playoff basketball, Festival, Jazzfest, Hockey playoffs....the list goes on and on. Anyway, here are some dates featuring The Widowers and some other bands the guys are in. Check them out!

Thursday, May 5th — Cinco de Mayo awesomeness at Red Star Bar in Baton rouge, featuring Dov Charney (with D. Logan on drums, Louby singing and on git-fiddle and the massive, huge star-killer Lee "The Dream" Barbier on bass), Neighborhood Threat and NOLA's Dead People. Click here for more details, should be amazing. NOTE: Don't use the midnight showing of Thor as an excuse to miss out....Kenneth Branaugh directed that's not Shakespeare, it's flippin' Thor.

Friday, May 13th — Friday the 13th extravaganza (meaning, we probably won't get killed by a slasher) at Red Star Bar, featuring Pacifico (with D. Logan on drums, Jon "The Thrill" Tillman on bass), The Diane Lanes (Louby singing and on git-fiddle...again!) and Laffy's The Viatones. More details here.
