1776 will be playing a show on Independence Day, July 4th, at Rontoms in SE Portland. What makes this party cool is not the obvious cracks about the year of our nation”s independence coinciding with one of today”s hottest bands going, although I”m sure some of you may be chuckling. No, the news that joining the Sixers will label mate and returning champion Logan Lynn, and our newest World Beater, The Hugs. This is a bigtime shindig you will be talking about for years, but not if you miss it. Your kids don”t need to hear about how on July 4 2010 you were to Sauvie”s Island. Boring. Come to Rontoms and see some history.

If you are in Portland this Thursday, come up to NW for First Thursday at Portland Photostudio. Along with art by Cat Coats and Victor St. Petersburg, you can enjoy Beat The World bands The Hugs, 1776, and DJ Rescue (Zia from the Dandys.) Portland Photostudio is at 917 NW 19th Ave and the party starts at 6:30. And just because I live in the neighborrhood, let me tell you, parking is a bitch, especially on First Thursday. Think about taking taking the streetcar up, if you can.

The Dandys Brent DeBoer (you might call him Fathead) has a collection of tunes out today called THE FARMER, and even though it”s on his own Headness Records, we want you to gobble it up.
Enclosed in this record are songs Fathead wrote and recorded over the past several years with help from old friend Brian “Coatsie” Coates. The record is for sale at CDBaby.com right now, and a ortion of the proceeds got to MS research. We hope you can pick up this record, we think it”s great.
