we could not play wojtek's birthday party tonight because i have a very bad respiratory infection.
we're really sorry, we had been looking forward to this for a long time.
we love wojtek!


best worst week ever

we played 2 shows at new french bar last week. one on tuesday the 6th and one on saturday the 10th.
videohippos were supposed to play the 6th, but they had to cancel because of some sick-ness.
the show went on, but afterwards drama ensued & that probably made it the worst show ever.
on the 10th, devin recorded future islands' song for the future islands/ear pwr split 7"
split 7"
tron valdez cancelled that night, so to fill the void we played a short set with woman (knoxville), future islands (greenville/ asheville/baltimore) and vandertramp (asheville)
and although it was if-y at first, it turned into one of the craziest nights ever...

the werehouse/ dance party

we played a last minute show at the werehouse friday night.
austin devin
at one point these kids started doing some synchronized dance. i don't think it was the electric slide, but kindof similar. i tried to capture the phenomenon but these pics don't do it justice.

dumbledore was gay!

i'm a geek.
anyway, dumbledore was gay and now i know why i loved him so much.

learn more at the leaky cauldron

question: Did Dumbledore, who believed in the prevailing power of love, ever fall in love himself?

jk rowling: My truthful answer to you... I always thought of Dumbledore as gay. [ovation.] ... Dumbledore fell in love with Grindelwald, and that that added to his horror when Grindelwald showed himself to be what he was. To an extent, do we say it excused Dumbledore a little more because falling in love can blind us to an extend, but he met someone as brilliant as he was, and rather like Bellatrix he was very drawn to this brilliant person, and horribly, terribly let down by him. Yeah, that's how i always saw Dumbledore. In fact, recently I was in a script read through for the sixth film, and they had Dumbledore saying a line to Harry early in the script saying I knew a girl once, whose hair... [laughter]. I had to write a little note in the margin and slide it along to the scriptwriter, "Dumbledore's gay!" [laughter] If I'd known it would make you so happy, I would have announced it years ago!


october 20th :(

we had to postpone our new york show (again) due to a recent cop invasion fiasco raid at "space space."
as luck would have it, i bumped into andy this morning and he asked if we wanted to play a short set at the werehouse this friday night. and of course, i said "sure"
so come. bring your dancin' boots.



jack ramshaw

rcrd release party

we were so excited to finally see our record. it is so beautiful.

all of the pics i took after the show started were just grey because we had some major (awesome) fog machine action going on.
but here's one i took before things got started

after the night light party we made our way to breniecia's "gods and goddesses" birthday party and we played again

what's jeff amicitia doing here?

leilani breaking it down.




come to the night light in chapel hill!!!

our record, we less than 3, is dropping on saturday, october 6th.
i really, really, really want people to come.
even if there's something way bigger and better happening somewhere else.
do i have to offer cupcakes? because i will. it seemed to work the last time. is it really going to come down to bribery?
there will be scrumptious cupcakes hand-crafted by sarah pwr.
i mean, even if you aren't interested in buying this badass record you should come anyway. eat a little cupcake, drink a little beer. and god knows your legs will get a work out. everyone could use a good solid leg workout.
