EP Release show! Dec. 3! Palmer's!  

We'll be celebrating the release of Can You Hear the Clubhouse? on Saturday, December 3rd at Palmer’s in Minneapolis with Loser Magnet and Partial Traces. Doors at 8. It will be available digitally and on a very limited lathe cut 7” record. 45 copies, 45rpm. 

Can You Hear The Clubhouse? EP 

Can You Hear the Clubhouse is the new EP from the St. Paul, MN band Folios. While tracking a bunch of songs for the full length follow up to Dispatch, we took three full band band tunes from the studio and collected them with one Martin recorded at home. The result is an eleven minute tale that involves a little time travel and a lot of bloodletting, but nevertheless has a beginning, middle, and end, should you choose to look for something like that. Come on in, there are no VIPs...

Martin Devaney-vocals, rhythm guitars

Ryan Lovan-drums, percussion
Matt Palin- bass
Josh Peterson-lead and rhythm guitars

engineered, mixed, and mastered by Tom Herbers in St. Paul, MN

St. Paul Summer 

Very psyched to be a part of two classic outdoor series this summer in the capital city. We'll be playing this year's Lowertown Sounds in beautiful Mears Park on July 28th with We Are the Willows. Then in August, the band is honored to be included for a show at the Grand Oak Opry on the 27th. More on both of these shows at the links below and other summer shows are found on, you guessed it, the Shows page.

An Unofficial Minute 

An Unofficial Minute. Sounds better than "monthly newsletter", I guess. That's what I'll be calling the...monthly...correspondence... I've gotten to the point where I'm less inclined to be on social media much, so I'll be staying in touch the old fashioned way, which is...email. One place to organize the main plot points and other miscellany that seems worth bringing up. Not going full hermit. Yet. Sign up at the bottom of the contact page to stay in touch.
