Looking for your face?

Where’s your face?

If you were at The Tin Angel show last night, it was ROCKED THE HELL OFF, that’s where! You can pick it up (along with any socks that may have been rocked off) at The Mid-Atlantic Regional Office of the Hot Breakfast Secret Lair where charts and graphs indicate our World Domination should be happening pretty much any time now. We’ve ramped up coverage in our call center to make sure we don’t miss the call from Rolling Stone.

What shall we do with the unclaimed faces (earlye in the mornin’)?
Stay tuned. Our lawyers are workin’ on it.

Rocking is expensive

Someone better call the handyman, because today’s rehearsal blew the roof and doors of my house.

Below is a short list of a few things we have blown up/off/out the following items with our Rock:

  • the roof
  • the doors
  • countless minds
  • multiple sets of socks
  • several lids
  • a D string

Damn. Rocking so hard is pretty expensive.

Gig: 7/30/10 – Tin Angel

Hot Breakfast is headlining at The Tin Angel in Philadelphia on July 30th. The show starts at 7pm. We rigged it that way so you can’t complain that it’s too late (no it’s not, grandma!) and you have to get up for work the next day (no you don’t, liar!) and Philadelphia sucks (no it doesn’t, fartface!), and blah blah blah. Just take your dang waaahmbulance and drive on up there. Sheesh.

The Tin Angel is located at 20 South 2nd Street, in Philly.

Once again, The Joe Trainor Trio is closing for us that evening. We like to give them as many gigs as we can, you know, to help build their road muscle.

That’s a term we pros use here in the Music Business.

Matt’s new tunes

Matt has been working on some new tunes, and he just released another album. Hot Breakfast is sometimes too overwhelmingly awesome for one man to take, so to ensure he stays healthy and doesn’t explode from all of the freakin’ ROCKING, he chills out with a nice malt liquor beverage and some recording equipment and records his own stuff. You can check it out here. I will be timing how long you are over at that web page because you really need to be spending your time right here.

But then again, I also understand that there’s only so much awesoming you fans (our “cool little brothers”) can take, so I suppose it’s OK for you to spend some time with Matt and his solo stuff. But make sure you listen to “Elephant Gun” a lot, because that’s actually a Hot Breakfast tune. Matt knew he needed to add that to his CD or otherwise it probably wouldn’t sell.

I am comfortable with Matt riding on Hot Breakfast’s coat-tails. Lord knows The Industrial Jazz Group, the Joe Trainor Trio, and Billy Joel do it.1


1 Huhhhuhuhuh. I said “do it.”

I really like it when musicians say “Mercy” in their songs.  I don’t want them to sing it… I want them to say it, almost under their breath.  It is extra-cool if they do it during or after an awesome guitar solo.

That’s what I think.

I dare you to say “Mercy” in your best Elvis voice right now, even if you don’t have an awesome guitar solo handy.  I’ll wait.

Don’t you feel cool?

I mean, OK, you’ll never be as cool as us, but you could totally be like our cool little brothers or something.

Our Awesome Streak Continues

We asked our friends and family members a totally random sampling of audience members what they thought, and they unanimously agreed that Hot Breakfast was the opposite of suck at the JDRF Benefit on Saturday night.

If you ask us, we think we FREAKIN’ RULED.  I mean, does that photo up there look like anything other than RULING?  No.  No, it does not.

Oh yeah, the Joe Trainor Trio was pretty good too and stuff.

Gig: 9/19/09 – JDRF Benefit Concert

We’re doing a benefit concert for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation on September 19, 2009 at the Baby Grand in Wilmington, Delaware.

We have a very special guest, The Joe Trainor Trio, closing for us that night. They’re pretty good; you should totally check them out. (Yes, yes, I know that most headlining bands have to say that about their supporting act, but really, I mean it. They’re totally pretty good.)

Anyway, tickets are $15 and all proceeds benefit the charity. Hot Breakfast has generously omitted the high-ticket items from the rider for this gig, so you know it’s an important cause. You can buy tickets by contacting The Grand Opera House box office.

Gig: 3/14/09 – Casarino Royale

So, in addition to being one-half of the world-dominating band HOT BREAKFAST, Matt also writes plays.

He writes so many plays that City Theater in Wilmington, Delaware is doing a whole night of his plays just so he can get all the play business out of his system and concentrate on the band. It’s very nice of them to help Matt out like that. They’re calling the night of plays “Casarino Royale,” which is a play on Matt’s last name and it kinda sounds like that James Bond movie a little bit if you think about it for a while. I don’t know if it was intentional, but I totally got the joke.

Anyway, to get people to come see Matt’s plays, HOT BREAKFAST will be playing on the night of March 14th as the opening act. You can expect to hear your favorite tunes done even better than the people who originally recorded them.

Sometimes we realize that we’re playing them SO much better than the original artist did that we intentionally make it suck a little bit just in case word gets back to the artist that we are so much better. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want Bonnie Tyler mad at me; that chick is nizzity-NUTS hanging out in an all-boys school with doves and really drafty windows that don’t close and guys dancing around in loincloths. What the hell kind of school does she run, anyway?

If you’d like to buy tickets, head on over to the City Theater website. Don’t forget that we’re only going to be playing on 3/14. You’ll have to buy the VIP tickets to get access to our portion of the night.

That’s right. VIP, baby.
