Back from tour, off (again) to NYC

Hello, friends. I wanted to briefly write you for two reasons: 1) Our CD release on Nov. 6 at the Middle East Downstairs is lurching closer by the second, and 2) We are headed to New York City for the CMJ festival tomorrow, Friday. Read on for details...

On that CD release, we now have an extraordinary five-band bill: Cassavettes, Movers & Shakers, You Can Be a Wesley, Quixote, and Jookabox (Asthmatic Kitty Records). We'd love for you to be there, too, as this is going to be a big night for us. This CD, "Shake Down the Sun," is hopefully a big step forward for us, and this release show is going to literally be a party to celebrate that monumental (at least in theory, as of now) step. Grab your tickets today, as this thing is gonna get nicely naughty in a hurry!

Also, see a cool CD release show poster, designed by Chris Cerrato (who did the CD design). Print some out, hand them to friends/family/strangers, hang it in your room and fall asleep looking at its intricate design, and wondering if Chris Cerrato is man or myth.

Now, as for this thing tomorrow at CMJ, we are playing Pianos at a Planetary Party headlined by (who else?) Superdrag, featuring some esteemed musicians, like Boston's own Will Dailey. We play as early as the rooster crows for these musician types, 1:40 p.m. If you're interested in coming out, give us a shout via email, cassavettesband (at) hotmail (dot) com. We'll see what we can do. Full details, click here.

That's about it. We hope to see you out at the CD release show, Friday, Nov. 6 at the Middle East Downstairs. It's going to be fun!
