Last minutely: We are opening for Immigrant Union featuring Brent DeBoer (aka Fathead) from The Dandy Warhols(!!) at The Bunkhouse in Las Vegas.
9:00pm doors, 10:00pm show
We will be playing some Petty tunes at a tribute concert on November 8th at the newly re-opened Bunkhouse in Las Vegas. It is a benefit show for the Shade Tree Shelter in Las Vegas. They are accepting clothing, blankets, money, etc. and the money from the door is going to them. More info about the shelter and what donations they are taking: http://www.theshadetree.org/needs.html
There will be a number of other cool acts playing Petty songs as well. The show starts at 7:00pm.
$5 in advance, $8 at the door
The band is pleased to announce that the good Mr. Fallon will be taking over on the bass. He has thrown some down on our new album and will be joining us on tour.
There will be a give-away this Friday at the listening party. Record City will be posting directions on how to get one of the free copies of the Lightning vinyl on their Facebook webpage between now and the shindig. Getshasome: RECORD CITY FB PAGE
We shall be spinning the record and doing an acoustic set or two to celebrate the release of our debut album There Was Lightning through Plane Groovy Records.
Free posters for all comers! Free admission! All Ages!
Record City is our favorite place in the world right now because that is where this whole record deal business originated. We can't thank Joey McDonald enough for his part in it and helping/letting us do this at his record shoppe.
We are crazy excited to join the eclectic and storied roster of Plane Groovy Records which includes Dave Gregory(XTC), Chris Difford and John Bentley(Squeeze), Judy Dyble(Fairport Convention), Spizzenergi, Curved Air, Chris Braide(solo artist who has written songs/produced for many including Lana Del Rey), Matt Deighton(Paul Weller, OASIS briefely), Geoff Downes(Yes, The Buggles, Asia), many more interesting artists.
About the LP: there are two versions, a limited edition (only 100 copies ever) on transparent purple vinyl, and traditional black. They are both on 180gram vinyl. It sounds immense. There are lyrics. It comes with a coupon for downloading a digital version.
The track-listing was adjusted to accomodate side-fittinglyness. 'It's Getting Early' was moved from track 7 to track 5. It still floooows
Nine out of the ten songs from our album have been played on FM and AM radio stations in at least three countries that we know of so far!
In which the group discusses their love of vinyl:
Orders have begun shipping out for Lightning on 180gram vinyl. Thank you everyone that has already ordered! It's now out there, floating around, moving outwards from the UK.
There are two versions of the heavyweight vinyl: a classic black and a limited edition transparent purple version. There are only 100 copies(ever!) of the purple vinyl. Ordering is done through the Plane Groovy Records online store here:

*Those in the USA: if you do not mind a slight delay in receiving your copy, you can select the "UK shipping" option instead of the "worldwide shipping" option when checking out.
