August NW shows with Chuck Prophet!

We’re proud to be supporting our pal Chuck Prophet and his cracking band the Mission Express for a couple of Northwest shows next week:

08.07.14McMenamin’s White Eagle – Portland, OR – 8:30pm – $15 (tickets)
08.09.14Slim’s Last Chance – Seattle, WA – 9pm – $15 (tickets)

For logistical reasons, we’ll be doing the Portland show as the “Lincoln & Dan power duo” (guitar/keys), but we’ll be back in action as the full band for Saturday’s show in Seattle. Both venues are very small, so advance tickets are highly recommended. Don’t miss this chance to see Chuck preview songs from his forthcoming record Night Surfer, out 9/23.

Hope to see our PDX and Seattle pals at the shows!

High Dive May 16

Greetings, friends! We’ve had a very relaxing break, but we’re chomping at the bit to get back onstage!

To that end, we’ve got a very cool show coming up this Friday, May 16 at the High Dive in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood. Our friends Gibraltar will open the show, and veteran songsmith Gerald Collier and his band headline. RJM hits the stage at 10:30pm.

We won’t be playing many club shows this year, as we focus on finishing the follow-up to Someone Else’s Cake, so we hope to see all of our pals out at this one – we’ve missed you!

Things We Like to Do: A Tribute to NRBQ – April 12 at the Royal Room!

Greetings, from the other side of our relaxing two-month furlough!

We’ve got a very exciting show coming up that we must tell you about. On Saturday, April 12 at Seattle’s Royal Room (5000 Rainier Ave S. in Columbia City), we’ll pay tribute to our most favorite band, the New Rhythm & Blues Quartet!

We’ll be joined by a whole cast of our Q-loving friends (and some of the finest musicians in town) – including, but not limited to, members of: The Tripwires, The Jukehouse Hounds, The Souvenirs, The Mangles, The Bellow Brothers, and last but certainly not least, the mighty Young Fresh Fellows!

Rather than the standard each-band-plays-two-songs format, we’ve been working hard to polish up a number of one-night-only collaborative combos (comprising folks from all of the above) to make this night extra-special, and we’ll cover dozens of tunes spanning the NRBQ catalog…so if you love the Q (and if you don’t, what’s wrong with you?), you simply must attend.

The suggested donation is $10, and all proceeds will benefit Musicares. You can find lots of details and RSVP on Facebook.

As an added bonus, Lincoln will be appearing on KSER.fm‘s Blue Moon Lounge this Monday, March 31 at 8pm Pacific to discuss his love of NRBQ and play some tunes, solo-style. Tune in at 90.7FM in the Everett, Washington area, or stream along worldwide at kser.org!

If you’re wondering, “NRB-who?”, not to fear – we put together a handy primer course on Spotify so you can get up to speed, and/or share the Gospel of the Q with your friends!

If you prefer visual stimulation, a great deal of the NRBQ universe is encapsulated in this 7-minute YouTube clip:

See you April 12 at the Royal Room!

Jayhawks tribute, Marty Riemer Podcast this Friday

Uncle Tupelo/Jayhawks tribute poster

We’re proud to be participating in the second annual Uncle Tupelo tribute night at the Tractor Tavern on Thursday, January 30. To keep things interesting, they’ve thrown the Jayhawks into the mix this year, and we’ve chosen to tackle three Gary Louris-penned numbers. (Which ones, you ask? I guess you’ll have to be there!)

Tons of great bands (including Low Hums, Evening Bell, and Star Anna) are performing, and all proceeds benefit the most righteous Musicares, which provides healthcare and assistance to uninsured (and under-insured) musicians and their families. Check out the full list of acts and RSVP on Facebook.

First, though, Dan and Lincoln will perform on the Marty Riemer Podcast this Friday, January 17 at 9:30am Pacific. Watch it live worldwide at martyriemer.com!

Tune in!

Happy 2014!

Hope everyone’s new year is off to a great start. Our NYE show with LeRoy Bell and His Only Friends at the Kirkland Performance Center was a smashing success – thanks to all who rang in 2014 with us!

Several of our writer and DJ friends who dug Someone Else’s Cake were kind enough to place it on their year-end lists – check out the links below for a rundown:

Michael Toland’s Top 10 Pop Records of 2013 – The Big Takeover (#6!)
L. Kent Wolgamott’s Top 40 Albums of 2013 – Lincoln Journal-Star (#26)
Ricky Flake’s 2013 Top 10 plus one – Biloxi Sun-Herald (#3!)
Kid Yoshida’s Best of 2013 – KEOL La Grande (#10)
The Un-Herd Music Top 30 of 2013 (#19)
The Absolute Powerpop Top Albums of 2013 (#94)

We’re taking a bit of time off in February & March to recharge and finish writing the follow-up to Someone Else’s Cake, but we’ve got a couple of local shows to play first – check the Shows page for details.

Thanks to all of you for your amazing support in 2013 – here’s to even better things in 2014!
