I Went to a Show caught up with us about our FOAM show and what we’ve been doing lately..check it:
We’ve got two brand new musicians in the lineup:
Andy Benn (lead singer of Potomac Accord) is now holding down keys and guitar
Syrhea Conaway (Syna So Pro) is picking up the bass
We are super excited about these two and are ready to rock the house!

We were very fortunate to share the stage at PlushSTL last night with the St. Louis winners of the “Best Folk Band 2012” (Campfire Club) and “Best Pop Band 2012” (Tight Pants Syndrome). It was a brilliant show. Much love to everyone who came out and danced the night away!
We’ve got a few interviews and video shoots lined up this week, so we are staying busy, as usual. You might also notice that our website is looking a bit fancier nowadays, as we have recently migrated to this new format. Hope you like it!
