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 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 Adam Lamoureux-Hammond B3, Stylophone Ryan Lovan-drums, percussion Matt Palin- bass Josh Peterson-lead and rhythm guitars
engineered, mixed, and mastered by Tom Herbers in St. Paul, MN produced by Tom Herbers with Martin Devaney
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. 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.
Ah, the lowly cassette. The people's format. Dispatch was always bound for the medium and we're happy to say that we have a limited run of 80 hand-numbered cassettes available. We'll be adding them to the store soon and they will be available at the White Squirrel Bar on November 13. Full band show with We Are The Willows (solo sets).
We're excited to finally be releasing Dispatch into the world with a show at the Aster Cafe! Niki from our friends Bev will be opening the evening and we'll be debuting a few new tunes, in addition to playing everything from the album. The record will be available on limited, hand-numbered vinyl, as well as CD. We're asking that attendees be vaccinated or have a negative test in the last 48 hours. While there are no advance ticket sales, reservations are available and recommended. Dinner and a rock show.
