Again with the squeaky shoes …
We have more bad news. But this time the bad news is only for the place that got away with not having bad news last time. Ashville, NC, we’re sorry, but it has to be this way. We found out late yesterday afternoon that our Tuesday show had to be canceled, due to these events that are continuously unforeseen. If someone would invent an Event Foreseer, believe us, we’d use the hell out of it … but until then, we are subject to the merciless and unrelenting whims of unforeseeability.
In Other News….that ISN’T bad –
We would like to thank each and every one of you for our victory at San Juan … I mean Mercy Lounge on Monday. You stood tall … well, most of you weren’t there, but you were there in spirit with your heads held high. To the ones of you that were actually there…you have the hearts of lions. We thank you for sticking around until 12:30 on a Monday night. We certainly couldn’t have done it without you. You were the “landslide.” And Stevie Nicks sang you with all her heart.
For those of you who are somehow in the dark with what all of this means –
It means that The Protomen are going to play at the Bonnaroo Festival in Manchester, TN with Bruce Springsteen, The Decemberists, Jenny Lewis, TV On The Radio, Okkervil River, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, David Byrne, NIN, and Danny Glover! I don’t know if Danny Glover is really going to be there, but we got a hot tip.
On to other related business –
Recently, we told everyone that if we won the Road To Bonnaroo competition, we would have an ice cream party. We are men and women of our word … Congratulations, you won yourself free ice cream. Very soon, we’re having said Ice Cream party at the Strike And Spare on Charlotte Ave. in Nashville, TN. Stay tuned for more information.
