So, it seems like the next half-a-year is going to be a pretty exciting time.
First of all, next month, we've got three shows lined up. Our first show is at The Espy this Friday night, with Peabody, The Once Overs and
Altyan Childs Alkan Zeybek. We're on second, so I imagine that will be somewhere around 10pm. After that, we're doing a last-minute fill-in job on Saturday night at Pony, 2am style. Last gig for the month will be a big Boxing Day in Ballarat; Yard Apes + YIS at Karova Lounge on Monday the 26th.
In addition, Andre and I will once again be backing up Brat Farrar on a few shows, including the Future of the Left support at The Corner on December 16. More Brat Farrar show info up on his Bandcamp.
After that, we'll be doing a couple more Melbourne shows (and maybe one in Geelong) and then putting a big fat line under the Kingdom of Fuzz-era of YIS, as after that, we're heading off to Europe to play a bunch of shows with Brat Farrar. Andre and I will hopefully be doing a few small YIS duo shows along the way, but you'll see us play Brat's songs of equal quality in the Netherlands, France, Spain, Belgium and Germany from March 22 until April 1. I will post the dates here when I've got them, but it looks like a big of shows.
I'm off to the UK and NYC after that, and Andre is going to spend some more months in Europe, while Bronwyn is finishing up study and does some important work type things, so, prior to that, hopefully we'll be able to pin Matt down for long enough to have one final hurrah at a venue that's yet to be decided. Hopefully on the other side we'll have something new, exciting and different to play for everyone.
Speaking of new and exciting, we did some other stuff this weekend; Andre recorded our pals in Bidet Mate, and then I whipped up this video. Enjoy, re-post, download, etc.
So, that's it for now. Hopefully see you at a show over the weekend. We'll be playing the favorites and some oldies from the vault. Until then...
