NPR INTERVIEW: Listen to Hot Breakfast! on WDDE/WMPH – Delaware’s own National Public Radio station!

by Ji11

Look ma! We're on NPR!

Look ma! We’re on NPR!

The fabulous Cathy Carter reached out to us a few weeks ago asking if we could make time for an interview. We said “Of course!”

We had the honor of visiting their studios on the campus of Delaware State University and not only chatting with Cathy, but also playing two songs live in studio. The purpose of the interview was to hype our upcoming Comedy Music Show this Saturday, 2/6/16 at 7pm (that’s tomorrow night, and it’s early!) at the Smyrna Opera House with Todd Chappelle and the Mean Wendy Band.

So clicky the image below to be brought to the article written about us, as well as to hear our interview.

ps: And to the editor who works there: My good sir/madam, we owe you 17 fruit baskets and a TON OF LOVE AND HIGH FIVES for the way you edited our blathering stutteriness into something coherent. THANK YOU! Really. You’re the real MVP. xoxo!

We’re heading back to SXSW, kids! (Deets TBA.)

It’s that time of year again, when thousands of innovators descend upon Austin, Texas to share ideas through film, music, panel discussions, hands-on demonstrations, technology, visual art… all in hopes of changing the world and making it a better, safer, smarter, more creative place for everyone. We played here for the past two years were asked back. Yee-haw! We’re famous!

We’re still waiting on the specifics re: when and where we’re playing, but keep your eyes peeled on this very post (we’ll be updating this entry), and as we learn more, we’ll keep you in the loop.


So that’s the news for now, which we realize isn’t really news other than “Wheee! We’re going, and we know it’s official because we’ve been given plane tickets.” So we promise to keep you posted… stay tuned! Until then, we really hope to see you at one of these other performances we have dotting our calendar.

It’s that time of year again, when thousands of innovators descend upon Austin, Texas to share ideas through film, music, panel discussions, hands-on demonstrations, technology, visual art… all in hopes of changing the world and making it a better, safer, smarter, more creative place for everyone. We played here last year and were asked back by the venue, and our fearless promoter used those kudos as a springboard and booked us a bunch more shows for the week. Yee-haw!

We’re playing three shows with the possibility of adding a fourth, so keep your eyes on our Google Calendar for the most up to date info on our shows.

Each show we’re playing features a gazillion bands, but in the interest of saving space, we’re gonna use this blog entry to tell you when/where we’re playing, and if you wanna know who else is on the bill, click that gig’s ‘Details’ link on our Google Calendar and you’ll see it all there.

I’m gonna cut to the chase since it’s after 5am. So here are the…

DEETS:

Show #1: Wednesday, 3/18, 8pm, Love Goat


WHEN: Wednesday, March 18, 8pm sharp.
WHAT: We play a 40-minute set in the downstairs bar!
WHERE: Love Goat (2716 Guadalupe St in Austin), which is a fantastic two-story/two-stage bar near the UT Austin campus and away from (but still convenient to) the #SXSW hustle and bustle.
COST: No cover charge
SXSW WRISTBAND NEEDED? Nope!
FOOD/DRINKS?: It’s a bar, so yeah… plus they’re ridiculously cheap drinks. Food is pizza and/or Asian food that they’ll order/bring in from neighboring businesses for you. (They’ve basically outsourced their kitchen.)
PARKING: Street parking. Do NOT park in any parking lot or you WILL get towed.

Show #2: Thursday 3/19, 3pm, Love Goat (again)


WHEN: Thursday, March 19, 3pm sharp.
WHAT: We play a 30-minute set, but this time we’re on the roofdeck!
WHERE: Love Goat (2716 Guadalupe St in Austin), which is a fantastic two-story/two-stage bar near the UT Austin campus and away from (but still convenient to) the #SXSW hustle and bustle.
COST: No cover charge
SXSW WRISTBAND NEEDED? Nope!
FOOD/DRINKS?: It’s a bar, so yeah… plus they’re ridiculously cheap drinks. Food is pizza and/or Asian food that they’ll order/bring in from neighboring businesses for you. (They’ve basically outsourced their kitchen.)

Show #3: Saturday 3/21, 6pm, 219 West

WHAT: We play as part of a 4-act songwriters circle on the downstairs/indoor stage, just like last year. It runs from 6pm – 8pm; each act gets 4-5 songs each in a round-robin style. We dig this format!
WHERE: 219 West (612 W. 6th Street in Austin), which is a more upscale, beautiful two-story/two-stage bar near right in the heart of SXSW.
COST: TBD; please buy food and drinks!
SXSW WRISTBAND NEEDED? Nope!
FOOD/DRINKS?: It’s a bar and grill with really wonderful, creative drinks and gastropub/foodie food.

WHEN: Sunday, March 22, TIME TBD, IF IT’S EVEN HAPPENING AT ALL.
