some upcoming shows.

We’ve got some dynamite shows coming up in January that I want to tell you about, particularly those friends and fans in the New Jersey and New York areas.

Wednesday, January 11 (as you can see from the flyer), The 65’s and Speed the Plough will be playing together at Mexicali Live in Teaneck, NJ.  Mexicali Live is, from what I understand, a great venue with excellent sound, and they’ve got a great menu of independently-brewed beers (I heartily recommend the Sixpoint Righteous Ale, as well as the Keegan Ales Mother’s Milk, which they have on tap).  For more info and directions to the club, visit their website.

Saturday, January 14, our friends Yung Wu (which includes John and Ed from Speed the Plough, as well as Dave Weckerman, Stan Demeski, Glenn Mercer and Brenda Sauter from The Feelies) will be playing along with The Thousand Pities and East of Venus (which includes Glenn and Dave from The Feelies, Michael Carlucci from Winter Hours and Rob Norris of The Bongos) will be playing at Tierney’s in Montclair, NJ.  For more information and directions, visit the club’s website.

Friday, January 27 should be an unbelievably interesting night for those willing to make the drive to Upstate, New York.  The Mommyheads will be performing at the Howland Cultural Center in Beacon.  However, this is going to be a very different Mommyheads set, as instead of their traditional, rocked-out electrified sound, they’ll be playing with acoustic piano and upright bass, as well as a group of string players to augment their music.  This is the first time the band has done anything like this, and it should be an excellent opportunity to experience the unbelievable musical talent of the band, in an offbeat and unusual environment.  For more info and tickets, visit the website.

Lastly, on Saturday, February 11,  The 65’s will be bringing the rock into New York City, playing at Fontana’s (at 105 Eldridge Street).  By that time they’ll be supporting not only the Strike Hard! CD but should likely have a new video as well, for “Walk On Selfishly.”  Come down and check them out.

Dromedary bands are outstanding live performers.  And Dromedary shows are almost always a shitload of fun.  Come on down and check a few of these out; guarantee you won’t be sorry.
