SECRET GIG is secret (October 6, 2012, 8pm)

by Ji11

If you’re on our mailing list, you probably saw we had some bits there in fine print about a top-secret show that we weren’t allowed to announce, even if we got the gig. Well… guess what… WE GOT THE GIG! Wheeeeeeeeee!

But it’s kind of a mixed blessing– it’s a really big deal for us, but it’s strange because nobody (not even the promoter) is allowed to advertise it. It’s a secret-invite-only thing, and there are very few tickets available because of the size of this venue.

So here’s what we can tell you:

On Saturday, October 6th, a Rather Famous Person is doing a private concert for a private event at an intimate venue in Arden, DE. This show is purposely not being advertised. The promoter asked us to be the opener for this Rather Famous Person and his/her Band, but we had to get The Rather Famous Person’s approval first. We were originally told that this Rather Famous Person didn’t want a female-fronted band opening for him/her, so we figured we’d be out of the running, but I guess they changed their mind, so we’re on!

The thing is, we can’t tell you who this Rather Famous Person is. We’re not allowed to advertise the show in any way that Google could ever get a hold of… so no Facebook, no Twitter, no blogging, nothing… not even after the show has passed. We are allowed to invite people via email and phone only, and we have to get the invitees to swear that they will not mention it online.

So it’s kinda like winning a medal but not being able to tell anyone about it. But that’s OK… some things you do for the experience and not for the glory.

If you’d like to get an invite to this show, email us and tell us why you’d like to come. We’ve got a few tickets left, and it’s a first-come, first-served kind of thing. Tickets are $20. Yes, we realize you’re considering paying $20 to see us play a 40-minute opening set and then sitting through a concert by a person you may actually hate passionately (very doubtful), but you’re the gamblin’ type, we can tell.

We should also mention that we are thoroughly in love with this Rather Famous Person and have been for a few years, and we would be attending this show even if we weren’t opening. We have their albums and they are wonderful. You will *not* be disappointed.

(And for those of you keeping track… yes, we copied the contents of our recent mailing-list newsletter to a blog entry, but the promoter asked us to remove the fine print because he feared it gave away too much info. So if you’re looking for that fine print in the online version of the newsletter, it’s gone.)

GIG DEETS:

WHEN: Saturday, October 6, 2012, 8pm.
WHAT: Hot Breakfast! plays a 40-minute opening set for A Rather Famous Person in a Very Intimate Venue. If you email us requesting a ticket, we’ll tell you who the Rather Famous Person is, but you will be sworn to secrecy.
WHERE: The Buzz, Arden DE
TICKETS: $20. If you want to attend, you need to email us, and then we’ll put you in touch with the promoter who will get payment from you. It’s very secret.
PARKING: There’s a parking lot, and also street parking.
FOOD: No food. There may be beverages… not sure.

Anyway, we’d love for you to attend. We’re only advertising this show stealthily through this blog and by pointing people to the blog. You’ve gotta be a fan to attend.

We’d love to see you!

Your pals,

Ji11 and Suburban Legend

GIG: Friday July 27th at Bellefonte Cafe with Todd Chappelle!

by Ji11

You might remember that on a magical evening in April, musical history was made at Extreme Pizza in downtown Wilmington. Todd Chappelle and Hot Breakfast! joined forces and created a musical mushroom cloud of epic face-melting holycrapitude that is still raining its fiery ash upon our fair city.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are hoping to recapture some of that magic on the night of Friday, July 27th. In strict compliance with DNREC’s directive, we are having this concert in Bellefonte, because the city of Wilmington can’t afford any more musical eruptions. We understand, and are happy to do our part.

If you missed the Extreme Pizza show, then you might be curious about this Todd Chappelle character. We’re happy to fill you in. Todd is a singer/songwriter/comedian from Chadds Ford, PA. His songs are very funny– comedy is his main bag. But here’s the thing: So many guitar-playing comics are either great guitar players with crappy jokes, or good comedians who can’t play their dang instrument… either way, tragic. Not Todd. Todd plays the crap out of his axe, has a fabulous voice, and really funny material. Even after a bunch of listens (yep, we’ve got all his CDs!), they’re still hilarious. He also works almost entirely clean, so if you bring your parents to the show you won’t be crawling underneath the table in embarrassment. We can’t say enough great things about Todd– we have a musical crush on him pretty hard-core.

You also might know him as the “I’m From Delaware” guy.

GIG DEETS:

WHEN: Friday, July 27th, 2012, 7-9pm, or until they ask us to stop playing. We’ll be trading off sets loosey-goosey.
WHERE: Bellefonte Cafe: 804 Brandywine Blvd, Wilmington, DE 19809
COVER CHARGE: No cover charge! But you should probably eat or drink something (You’re too skinny! Just look at you wasting away!) because that’s the good thing to do (we recommend the black bean soup and the guacamole). The musicians get paid via tips and merch sales, so we’d naturally appreciate a little somethin’-somethin’ in the ol’ tip jar. If cash is tight though, don’t stay home. Order some coffee and give us a high-five instead.
PARKING: Street only.
FOOD:: They’ve got dinner, snacks, coffee, and adult beverages. We highly recommend the black-bean soup and the guacamole. Service is slow because everything is made to order from scratch by one woman: Donna. So relax, ok?

If you’re a Facebook kind of person, here’s a link to the Facebook event.

We know we’ve got a lot of gigs in July. If you can only come to one, come to this one.

Your pal,

Gig: Saturday July 7 at 1984, opening for D-not-D!

by Ji11

Last month, we christened the brandy-new stage at 1984 as we opened for a Pat Benatar tribute band. And on July 7th, we’re opening for a band that plays the songs of The Minutemen. The name of this tribute band: D-not-D, which also happens to be the acronym for The Minutemen’s killer double-album Double Nickels on the Dime, which D-not-D will cover in its entirety that night.

HOW FREAKIN’ COOL IS THAT?

We think it’s really cool! Super-cool! WAY COOL!

We are really excited that they asked us to open for them. We hope you’ll come out to see us, but to also check these guys out. They’re nuts. D Not D includes Greg Merk on schpiel (that’s vocals, yo), Keith Crawford on skins (drums…duh), Joe Testa on twang (geeetar), and Pete Ludwig on thud staff (bass!). Matt knows these guys, and has even been in a few bands with Joe Testa before. Ji11 has also shared a stage with Testa a buncha times when we all did our live performances of The Wall. Anyway, Joe plays like a motherfucker, and we’re fans of whatever project he’s working on. So come out and see it.

DEETS:
WHEN: Saturday, July 7 2012. We don’t know what time it’s all goin’ down yet, but I imagine we’ll go on sometime between 8:30 and 9:30 We start at 10pm, and we’ll play for about 30-45 minutes.
WHERE: 1984. 2511 W. 4th St., Wilmington, DE 19805. (between Union & Greenhill)
WHAT: Hot Breakfast! (Delaware’s premier acoustic dork-rock power duo) opening up for D-not-D (a Minutemen tribute band, playing Double Nickels on the Dime in its entirety!)
COVER: Not sure. It was $5 the last time, so it’ll be something like that. Don’t be mad if it’s $7.
PARKING: They have parking in their little lot there, but there aren’t a zillion spots. They also have street parking. Handle it; you’re smart.
FOOD: They only have beer/cider there and candy there; no kitchen. (What more do you need?) However, it’s totally cool (and even encouraged) for you to order Chinese takeout/delivery from the place next door (they’re good) or have a pizza delivered. Go nuts!

If you’re the kind of person who uses Facebook, here’s a link to the Facebook event page: DnotD and Hot Breakfast! at 1984.

See you there!

Friday the 13th: Three Gigs in one day! Insanity marathon!

by Ji11

We’ve been told that once you hit 40 you start ordering chicken croquettes with Metamucil gravy off HoJo’s early-bird menu and then you’re in bed by 9:30pm after an episode of Matlock.

NOT US, BABY.

We’re so hardcore that we’re playing three (THREE!) shows in one day for you, just three short weeks after Matt had his gall bladder out.

THAT’S HARD-FREAKIN’-CORE.

Philadelphia Dramatists Center; purveyors of fine Philadelphia theater since... well... a while ago.

Philadelphia Dramatists Center; purveyors of fine Philadelphia theater since… well… a while ago.


So lemme tell you about these shows!

SHOW THE FIRST:

We’ve been asked to be the first band ever to grace LOMA Coffee’s new music/performance space, so we’re kicking off an entire day of music. This means that we’re playing an early-morning show– that’s 8am. I wonder how bleary-eyed bankers will react to hearing Crazy Train as they make their way to the coffee counter for their first jolt of the day? One way to find out.

Jill would like to thank MAC Cosmetics in advance for creating foundation powerful enough to cover up her under-eye circles, since she is normally deep in full-on REM sleep at 8am.

WHERE: LOMA Coffee, 239 N. Market St. Wilmington, DE 19801.
WHEN: 8:00am – 8:45am. (What the hell are we thinking?)
HOW MUCH: No cover. Just grab a coffee. (Did you ever notice that Canadians say “a coffee” and Americans say “some coffee” or “a cup of coffee?” Discuss.)


SHOW THE SECOND:

Since 2011, we’ve been the house band for Philly’s Primary Stages, which is a quarterly two-night theater event where playwrights see their newly-penned short works performed at the Shubin Theater. It’s super-cool because over the course of two evenings, about 16 plays are staged with script in hand, and Hot Breakfast! gets to provide the interstitial music, as well as playing a fun half-hour set to a terrific crowd each night. We LOVE this gig!

As a thank you to Denise Shubin who owns the Shubin Theater, Philly’s Primary Stages is holding a fund raiser which showcases the best short plays of the last seven or so years of PPS. Because it’s a “best of” night, the actors will be off-book, and the shows will be spit-shined to a gleaming polish. There are two shows on the night of the 13th, and each performance features the same seven plays. And because it’s a fund-raiser, tickets are $20.

As usual, there will likely be beer, wine, and perhaps a bottle or two of something passed around (heh), as well as chips, snax, vienna sausages (it’s a Todd thing) and puddin’ packs. (We have “Jill gets 2 pudding packs” in our rider for this show, we shit you not. If Jill doesn’t get pudding, she trashes the place like fuckin’ Air Supply.)

WHERE: The Shubin Theater, 407 Bainbridge St. (that’s 4th and Bainbridge), Philadelphia, PA 19147
WHEN: We start at 7pm sharp! The plays start at 7:30.
HOW MUCH: It’s a fund raiser for the theater, so tickets are $20 and well worth it. Get yer tickets here: http://is.gd/Shubin_Tix
MORE DETAILS: http://www.facebook.com/events/255436124551441/


SHOW THE THIRD:

Same exact gig as the previous one, except this show starts at 10pm and may feature slightly more awesomeness from the house band. (Awesomeness subject to availability; house band awesomeness may be substituted for yawning and crankypants at the discretion of the management.)

WHERE: The Shubin Theater, 407 Bainbridge St. (that’s 4th and Bainbridge), Philadelphia, PA 19147
WHEN: We start at 10pm sharp! The plays start at 10:30.
HOW MUCH: It’s a fund raiser for the theater, so tickets are $20 and well worth it. Get yer tickets here: http://is.gd/Shubin_Tix There will likely be beer, wine, and perhaps a bottle or two of something passed around (heh), as well as chips, snax, vienna sausages (it’s a Todd thing) and puddin’ packs.

All of this is happening on Friday the 13th. What could go wrong?
NOTHING; for the power of ROCK protects us.

Amen.

To whom do I need to give a kidney so we can open for Jonathan Coulton in Philly?

by Ji11

So… JoCo (aka the freakin’ magnificent Jonathan Coulton) just announced that he’s going back on the road in June. And looky there: he’s playing at World Cafe Live! I wonder who is opening for him? Don’t you think it should be us?

Here are our qualifications:

  • We are Delaware’s premier acoustic dork-rock power duo, by cracky!
  • We have songs about having a hole in your pants, about UFOs + love, about sheepishly and nerdily asking someone on a date, and we do a douchey cover of Crazy Train and a sweeeeet cover of Kiss Off
  • Jill’s .sig back in the USENET days was about professing her love for John Flansburgh
  • One of the first conversations Jill ever had with Matt was about programming TI-99/4As
  • We’re nerds (kinda goes without saying…)
  • Stormtroopers cannot resist our charm
  • Matt’s hair will not compete with Jonathan’s
  • We’ve played at World Cafe Live before. They like us there.
  • Most compelling reason: We’re cheap!

So Mr. Coulton, what’s it gonna take? I will bake you a batch of my world-famous maple-bacon cookies! I will eat an entire box of Cinnamon Life in one sitting! (Oh wait, I’ve done that already today.) I will get a dumb tattoo! I will donate a metric assload of money to a charity of choice! I will stop ending every sentence with an exclamation point!

Please? Pretty please? With sugar on top? And with a Grade B maple syrup drizzle and crumbled bacon? PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASE?
OH SWEET BABY WEDGE ANTILLES, I WILL NEVER ASK FOR ANYTHING ELSE EVER AGAIN FOR MY WHOLE ENTIRE LIFETIME EVER EVER EVER!
PLEEEEEEEZE?
ALL CAPS!
ALL CAPS!
DILUTE! DILUTE! OK!

———————
Hmmmm. Or maybe we should just send his booking agent an email with a link to our electronic press kit. We must consult our management.

Stay tuned.

Your pal,

Nekkid concerts? A project with Neil Gaiman, Amanda Palmer, and Kyle Cassidy? Sure!

by Ji11

Jill has been following Kyle Cassidy on LiveJournal and Twitter for a while because he is a freakin’ amazing photographer, a man-about-town, and they have some mutual Philadelphia friends, too. Kyle has photographed some fascinating people, and has been photographing the Dresden Dolls and Amanda Palmer for eons now… and he also shot many of the photos for Neil Gaiman’s book “Who Killed Amanda Palmer: A Collection of Photographic Evidence.”

Kyle’s photographer life takes him to some neat places around the globe, and for the past few months Hot Breakfast! and Kyle were coincidentally in Tucson and Austin at the same time on two separate occasions, yet missing each other by just a few hours each time. We all pretended to be concerned that we were stalking each other. :)

Kyle often alludes to “seekrit projects” via his LiveJournal, which naturally makes his readers lean in and read extra-carefully, trying to eke out any clues as to what he’s working on and who he’s working with. The other day he barely revealed just a few small details of his latest Neil Gaiman / Amanda Palmer / Kyle collaboration, and mentioned he needed a few couples of “certain ages” willing to be photographed tastefully naked for this seekrit project. Since Matt and I are of certain ages, we volunteered, mostly because we have been wanting to finally meet Kyle! (And after you hit 40, any concerns you ever had about being naked in front of folks just goes away… we look like what we look like. Having done a lot of theater helps, too.)

This morning we headed up to Philly, where Kyle and his (jaw-droppingly beautiful) wife Trillian so warmly welcomed us and made us feel completely at home. We got down to business after learning more about the project, and we took our solemn oaths of secrecy. As a thank-you for contributing to the project, we snapped a few fun HB! photos covering our jibblies with Matt’s guitar and a strategically-placed tambourine… and hey, since we had the instruments out, we played a bit. Naked house concert! Woot!

We have a show tonight in Wilmington at the Chris White Gallery, but we figured we could do a quick living room concert. What a beautiful life we have… we are surrounded by people who are doing what they were put on this earth to do. Damn, it feels good. We don’t need a ton of money in the bank account when we have the ability and opportunity to create and share art.

Here’s a video of us singing “Defender” in Kyle’s living room. Hopefully you can see from the preview that we are indeed clothed for this rendition.

Life is pretty awesome.

Your pal,

February is National Hot Breakfast Month (seriously)

by Matt

Our rise to world domination is OFFICIALLY DOCUMENTED ON THE INTERNET, PEOPLE. We’ve now had an entire freakin’ MONTH dedicated to our unfathomable awesomeitude. Yes, February is National Hot Breakfast Month. As such, this month is naturally a hectic time for Hot Breakfast!; but we’ve got a few gigs lined up and we’d love to see you there.

February is National Hot Breakfast Month. We're not kidding. This image stolen from THE INTERNET proves that it's true.

February is National Hot Breakfast Month. We’re not kidding. This image stolen from THE INTERNET proves that it’s true.

On Friday, February 10th, we’re playing a lunchtime show at World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington. We start at noon and play ’til 1. Reservations are recommended (and be sure to let ’em know you’re there for Hot Breakfast. They’ll catch on.) What goes better with eggplant fries than dork-rock? Not a damn thing. We also cannot emphasize this enough…the eggplant fries are transcendent. Holy Mother of Tom Waits, are they good.

On Tuesday, February 21 and Wednesday, February 22, we’re getting our drama on with the Secret Room Theatre at the Shubin in Philly. We’re the house band for the Philly Primary Stages readings of new plays. Hot Breakfast! will open the show, provide interstitial tunes, and play at intermission. We start around 7:25, so make sure you show up early. It’s always a great night of music and theater…especially when you consider this round’s theme is “Heart Attacks!” Will we be busting out some Queen or J. Geils band? Only one way to find out… (P.S. Here’s a map to the Shubin, so now you can’t say you couldn’t find us. Nice try.) It’s only five bucks, and you get 7 plays, drinks, snacks, and us. Cheap!

What have we got for you in March? Oh, YOU’LL find out…heh heh…heh…heh…(this is our way of saying we need to line up some March gigs, and pronto…)

Yours in dorkitude,
Matt

GIG: September 9th at World Cafe Live (ya need reservations!)

by Ji11

As Delaware’s Premier Acoustic Dork Rock Power Duo, we naturally get asked a lot of questions.

Probably the question we get asked the most is, “How is it possible that you both are so darn good looking?” And our only answer for that: Liberal application of only the highest-quality awesomesauce, at least thrice daily.

The second most frequent question we are asked is, “When the heck are you guys gonna play at World Cafe Live, like, for real? None of this open mic stuff.” And our answer has always been, “Patience, Grasshopper.”

UNTIL NOW.

Because we are officially booked at World Cafe Live at the Queen for a LunchTime Live at Noon concert on Friday, September 9th. The show starts at noon, and we play a full hour until 1pm.

The folks at WCL tell us that the show is expected to sell out, so y’all are encouraged to make reservations via OpenTable to make sure there’s a place for your rather cute butt. Click here to make a lunch reservation— it’s free and easy (like your mom).

We’re pretty excited about this, gotta say. We are thiiiis much closer to world domination, yo.

Your pal,

Jill

Looking for your socks? (plus, a set list)

by Ji11

For those of you who got to your cars last night and realized that your socks were gone, you can thank us for rocking them the hell off. To retrieve them, check with the Bellefonte Cafe staff; we left them in a plastic bag from Target– ask for Frank behind the bar.

photo (c) 2011 Joe del Tufo

Seriously… thanks so much to everyone who came to the show last night. We had a great time, and hearing y’all yell “HOT BREAKFAST!” and singing along makes it all worth while. We’re very lucky that we get to do what we do for appreciative people. So really, we owe you the thanks here.

photo (c)2011 Joe del Tufo

Also: Woot! As of this writing we’re up to 135 people who like us on Facebook. WORLD DOMINATION IS IMMINENT, PEOPLE. Can you taste it? (We can, and it tastes sorta like the brunch we had at Hank’s this morning. Highly recommended.)

We’ll be back at the Bellefonte Cafe soon enough, and we’ll also be playing at Between Books on an upcoming balmy Friday night. We also will be playing at open mic nights (granted, not a lot of bang for your buck there) at The Kennett Flash, World Cafe Life at the Queen, and Legendary Dobbs in Philly. We’re also talking to the people who book shows at Logan House, Mojo Main, and The Tin Angel. Stay tuned for details and dates! Don’t worry, we won’t leave you hanging.

Also: If you’re interested in booking us for a house concert, let us know! We love those.

OK, that’s it for now.

It’s 11pm, and this rockstar has some leftover rice that isn’t gonna eat itself.

Your pal,

Jill

Gig: June 4th at Bellefonte Cafe

by Ji11

It’s true! It’s true! Hot Breakfast! is returning to the super-cool Bellefonte Cafe on Saturday June 4th. After such a groovy and jam-packed time in April, the Bellefonte folks signed us up for a second gig that very night… we were flattered because we love that place, and lots of incredible folks have played there. We hope you’ll join us for some coffee, some banter, some tasty food, and a bunch of new tunes, too.

What new tunes?
Here’s a teaser: Do you like Duran Duran? How about A-ha? And what about Alan Parsons Project? And do you like Matt Casarino’s originals? YES YOU DO. So you should come on out and support not only a local business that serves local food, but also live, local indie music played by people who can actually, like, sing in tune without comput0rz.

Besides, how can you resist a new tune called “Hole In Your Pants”? You simply cannot.
The power of pants-holes compels you!
The power of pants-holes compels you!
The power of pants-holes compels you!

The show starts at 7pm and ends around 9, though something tells us they won’t be too upset if we go a little later. For those of you with a schedule to keep (or a touch of OCD), we promise to start as close to 7pm as possible.

See you then? See you then!

GIG: May 18th at the Blue Parrot (updated!)

by Ji11

Hey Ninjas!

Hot Breakfast! is opening for the Joe Trainor Trio at the Blue Parrot Bar and Grill in Wilmington on May 18th. I’m pretty sure we go on at 9pm, but keep your eyes peeled here and we’ll let you know for sure. Matt’s parents are going to be there, so make sure you say hello to them. (Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever even met them, so maybe if you say hello you can introduce us since you’ll be all buddy-buddy.)

[UPDATE: We start promptly at 9:30. We play until about 10:15. JT3 goes on at 10:30 sharp.]

Rumor has it that we’ll be playing a fairly good-sized set; perhaps 45 minutes to an hour. Of course, knowing Joe, he’ll cut our set down to 12 minutes or something. If that happens, maybe we can ask our Cool Little Brothers (who always have our back) to hold Joe down while we keep playing. We have an artistic statement to make, and we’re not leaving that stage until we’ve made it, golldarnit.

As of this writing, for some reason we’re not showing up on the Blue Parrot’s concert calendar. I’m not sure what that’s all about. We’ll get our people working on that right away. But you can trust us: we’re playing there.

[UPDATE: They updated their website, and our spiffy picture is on their band calendar. Woot! We’re famous! World Domination is IMMINENT!]

If you’ve got any requests, let us know. You can reply here if you want. We like it when you reply here.

OK, that’s all I’ve got to report for now.

Your pal,

Breakfast (aka Jill)

Gig: Jan. 7th @ 9PM – JB McGinnes

by Ji11

I heard through the grapevine that JB McGinnes in sunny New Castle, DE has a reputation for being a metal club. So why might they be courting HOT BREAKFAST! to grace their stage?

BECAUSE WE ARE EFFING METAL.

Lesser bands need to prove their metalosity with obvious things like distortion, black leather, sleeves of tattoos and pigeon sacrifice– but not us. We’ve got a freakin’ life to lead here Chachi — a life of ROCK — and all we need are Matt’s massive guns and Jill’s teeth-baring rock scowl (See Figure A, below) and whaddaya know: Yngwie Malmsteen is quivvering like a scared, wet chihuahua.

FIG. A

So yeah, it’s true. We’re playing at JB McGinnes in New Castle, DE on Friday, January 7th at 9pm. We really actually start playing at 9; not “rock and roll 9” which often means “sometime around 10:30.” So if you don’t want to miss the hurricane-esque rocking, then you’d best be on time, my friend.

In fact, what the hell… show up early. Camp out for fucksake. This way you will be guaranteed to be there when we finally achieve WORLD DOMINATION. It will happen, my friends. Oh yes… and our highly-paid statisticians and Reagan-approved astrologers tell us it is occurring that weekend. You don’t want to miss being part of history, do you? NO YOU DO NOT.

Three other bands will be closing for us: The Joe Trainor Trio, The Miles, and Villains Like You. We would like to commend these bands for having the courage to follow us. We admire chutzpah.

Your pal,

Jill
