Busy! Rest Fest and more!

August 13, 2010

Ahhhhh! It has been a while since we’ve blogged, but I promise to you that we have been busy. We opened up for Titus Andronicus in July with Hallejeluah the Hills. If you have not checked out either of those bands, please do so. They were very nice and fun people and ‘The Monitor’ is one of my favorite albums of the year so far. We also performed at SAW Fest a few weeks back and that was a ton of fun. Many thanks to everyone to worked to put that event on and thanks to everyone who came out and danced hard! We recorded a new song ‘I Only Date Girls that Look Like Carrie Fisher’ at Boomstick Recording Studio in Warwick with our friend Jeffro (of Paper Ships). We are very pleased with the results. You can stream it over at our Myspace Page and it will be available on an upcoming compilation to promote the Restoration Funstival (Rest Fest) at the end of August. Which brings us to our final topic:

Buy your tickets for REST FEST at! 2 days of great local music from 16+ bands with art from regional artists, multimedia performances, and food from local businesses in a surreal and historical setting deep in the heart of Albany. The Festival is being presented by the B3nson Recording Company in conjunction with the Historic Albany Society as well as help from 97.7 WEXT, 90.0 WCDB,, and local record stores Last Vestige and the Beat Shop. The Festival will take place at St. Joseph’s Church at 38 Ten Broeck st. in Albany on Saturday August 28th and Sunday August 29th. This historic landmark is a sight all on it’s own with original painting, carvings, stained glass and magnificent architecture. Add some of the regions most distinguished musicians, artwork from across the region and good food (and a beer garden!) and it suddenly becomes the most exciting event in the Capital Region!

The Festivities start at 12:00pm both days and will run until about 11pm. This event is all ages, but children under 16 must be accompained by a guardian. You will need your ID’s for will-call if you order tickets online and if you wish to enter the beer garden. You can also pick up tickets at Last Vestige (173 Quail st., Albany) or at the Beat Shop (197 River st., Troy). Tickets for this event are currently $15 for the whole weekend or $10 per day.
