Yesterday (5/21/13) we headed down to Brooklyn, NY to The Trash Bar. Right before we loaded are gear we got hit by a huge downpour accompanied by some hail. FACT: Every show we’ve had there has been some form of precipitation.Anywhoozle, this was our second time back and we really hope to keep coming back. Our dudes in The Afternoon Edition really killed it and we highly suggest you check out there new EP No One Will Know. Eden James split his set with Prays The Kid and Young Mothers opened the show with acoustic in the crowd. Big thanks to everyone that stuck around and as cliche as it sounds we always love seeing old friends and making new ones.Flyers are up all over Albany for “The Summer is Coming Bash” at McGeary’s! Joining us will be MaryLeigh Roohan whose live show has been known to mesmerize. For some reason Summer is associated with Hawaii so we got leis for everyone as well as some other summer things, but by all means show your Summer love in anyway you wish. We’re talking shades, trunks, zinka, flip flops… you get the idea. Also there will be Summer drink and merch specials as well as a best Hawaiian shirt contest. Doors at 9pm, $5 cover, +21 DON’T MISS THIS PARTY!
We posted this last week but Kyle will be traveling to Israel at the end of May and for pretty much all of June and we wish him a safe trip and good times. In his absence we are down for playing some stripped down gigs. Let us know about some open mics or if you want to book a show firstname.lastname@example.org
Super excited for this show. Erik used to lived with a couple of members from The Afternoon Edition who recently released an EP No One Will Know. Last time we came through Brooklyn we had an awesome time so we hope to see you all out again! (OPEN BAR)5/24 - Albany, NY - McGeary’s w/ MaryLeigh Roohan [FB Event]
Another McGeary’s show! Our last show there was for the release of Everything at Once which was really a special night. We plan to make this one just as fun. Shades, trunks, zinka, flip flops, Summer drink and merch specials, and best hawaiian shirt contest. We will be joined by MaryLeigh Roohan who recently played Albany’s Tulip Fest…(Top Photo Credit: Brian Tromans)
This year’s Tulip Fest was of course accompanied by RAIN, but that didn’t stop anyone from enjoying it. Dave had to do sound at the kid’s stage so we really enjoyed that magician. Besides the over priced foods and random kiosks, it was awesome seeing some friends perform and of course, Silversun Pickups. Their drummer’s crash cymbal setup was pretty enjoyable too.
Kyle and John have recently collaborated on putting together a children’s book entitled Josh Was Bored. We hope to post the full story online in the near future!
Kyle will be traveling to Israel at the end of May and for pretty much all of June and we wish him a safe trip and good times. In his absence we are down for playing some stripped down gigs. Let us know about some open mics or if you want to book a show email@example.com
Our good friend Dana of SMALLBANY recently posted a documentary about Smallbany (which is a satirical reflection of our lovely home Albany, NY). We were happy to be included in this project so without further adieu…-Stellar Young
Not a lot to report on for this past week. It has been wayyy too nice outside to not be out and enjoying some sunshine. Seriously though…
We have continued to work on the bunks in the bus and just finished the end walls for all the beds. Next we will be getting some mattresses fit to the bunks and shelves for storage. Our next venture with the bus is in less than 2 weeks!
We are still open to book some shows around 5/17 through 5/23. The idea is to get some shows on our way down to Brooklyn, NY from Albany, NY (before 5/21) and some shows to make it back up to Albany before 5/24. Any help booking we can get we’ll take. Please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any information to help us book. Thanks!
John’s short film, Bobby Undead, will air on WMHT’s original series TvFILM this summer! The time and date have not been released yet. If you’re not in the capital region viewing area, never fear, it will be available online after it airs on tv! Big congrats to everyone involved, really pumped for this.
Enjoy your week, and especially your weekend. If you’re in the Capital Region you’d be making a big mistake if you miss Tulip Fest. So much music and good times with friends to be had. Also, Happy Early Mother’s Day to our Mothers because without them we wouldn’t be here today!
Happy May!New merch is in for the Spring/Summer! Order your Moon Tank Top today featuring artwork from Everything at Once designed by Amanda Marie Eilis King. We also now have our Star Design available in Mint now (American Apparel)! Check out all of our other merch at our Bandcamp and every order comes with an immediate download of Everything at Once!

Kyle recently underwent lasik eye surgery but still rocked this past weekend. Last Friday (4/26/13) we drove down to Carmel, NY for a show at Arts On The Lake. We really can’t wait to head back for more shows in the future. Saturday (4/27/13) was Move Music Festival. We started the day at the Hotel Albany where we picked up all our info for the day and met some really cool people. We scattered about Albany to start our full day of music. Dave actually worked sound a little bit at one venue but after a quick break we packed up and headed to The Hollow Bar (formerly The Bayou) for our set. We went on around Midnight and were really happy to help bring the fest to an end with so many people. This is actually the second year in a row we closed the fest and so far we are pretty happy with this trend. Overall, it was a successful day and we are really happy that we got to be a part of it.(Photo Credit: Patrick Dodson [Top 2])
After a quick night of sleep we headed up to Saratoga, NY for WILDWOODstock. It’s really awesome to be a part of such a good cause and we hope to keep coming back. This was also our second year in a row participating and we donated a merch bundle for the silent auction. Big thanks to everyone else that played, came, and of course Dave Graham for making it all possible. After the festivities we picked up some milkshakes, had a quick game of wiffle ball, and then headed back to Albany for some much needed rest.
Want to see us live?!
