Sept 8, 2015


Ok, enough with the all caps.   Hope you had an awesome long weekend.  We sure did!  We drove the 200 miles round trip to play at Fandomverse up in Lancaster and it went so well they have asked us to be a part of Whedonopolis in May!*  And then today we went whale watching and saw a blue whale!

It looked like this.**

The Fallen Stars will be opening up for The Gypsy Mechanics.  It's the GM's 20th anniversary show celebrating the release of their first cd "Friendliest Place in Town".  I was a member of the GM's for about 100 years***** and this will be a special night with 2 returning drummers of Kris and Jimmy and a full night of fun.  Also - "Friendliest Place in Town" just made it's way to iTunes for the first time ever and it's got bonus tracks including our earlier demos, all in all $9.99 is pretty cheap for 27 songs.  Yes, 27 songs.  If you're on Apple Tunes, give it a listen.  

That's all I got for today.  

As always, thanks for hanging with us.
