Just listened to Florine by Ms. Barwick and couldn't be more thrilled to play this firehouse show with her tomorrow night.
If you haven't heard it, hear it. Come hug us tomorrow night, too.
We were going to play a show at St. James Church, but due to some insane posse of clowns, we can't.
Instead we're playing at an antique firehouse at 87 Lafayette St. between Walker and Canal. It'll be beyond dope. Help us, especially if you're a Christian, and beyond that, especially if you're Catholic, show the people who don't give a shit about common sense, freedom, or facts, that fun can be had in all kinds of places by coming out.
Regarding the events that took place at St. James on January 15th, here's my favorite summary so far (from a commenter on Brooklyn Vegan, no less):
What the hell?
This is utter insanity. There should be no problem with a church choosing to open its doors and give kids a pretty-fucking-safe place to go for the night. No one should be getting in trouble, or offended. Not the promoters or the people at the church that let the promoters promote. This isn't a matter of respect or disrespect. It's a matter of context, facts, fun, reaching out, and remembering who it is you claim to follow. I say all of this as a committed believing person.
Bad vibes are from hell. Not rock music.
