How did we get here?

It's been awhile, but I haven't given up on this blog.

There's plenty going on in Camp Cassavettes, so let's start with this weekend: We will be opening for THE ALLMAN BROTHERS and BOB WEIR (of the Grateful Dead -- know him?) and his band Ratdog this Saturday, Aug. 16, at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, Mass. How the hell did that happen? We'll be on the side stage, doing a quick set to get the party started at 5 p.m. before the big shots take the stage at 6, so get there early. And yes, there are still seats available (and some good ones circulating on Craigslist). Get them here: http://www.livenation.com/event/getEvent/eventId/320908/

Next week, we'll be back in Boston playing a birthday party for our buddy Quinn Strassel at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge (between Harvard and Porter Square). It's only $5 in advance ($7 day of) and features The Prigs and Frank Ciampi. Doors are at 7:30 p.m. and we'll take the stage a bit later in the evening, so come by for a drink and buy one for the birthday boy while you're at it.

Finally, please congratulate our very own guitarist and singer Mike McCullagh and his new wife, Julie, who officially tied the knot last Friday! Word from the wedding was that the dance moves were hot, the bride was beautiful, and the MC never learned to speak correctly. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. McCullagh!
