Next Monday night, we’ll be playing in support of the release of the 7″ single ‘Obama’ by the band CORPORAL.
This unpredictable, post anti-folk band features our friend and drummer extraordinaire Ray Rizzo (Dawn Landes, Less The Band, Glen Hansard),
and actor Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire, Revolutionary Road). Here’s a couple recent articles about them on IFC.com andUproxx.

The New York Times:
“The Rejection Show” lays all the cards on the table, putting the rebuffed work of writers, artists and even lovers on display. Jon Friedman, editor of the anthology “Rejected: Tales of the Failed, Dumped and Canceled” (Villard) and the show’s host, sets these castoffs in a new light with the help of comedians, storytellers, artists and musicians. The next show is on Feb. 14, just in time for unrequited lovers, featuring live music by the Defibulators.
