Well, we haven’t updated this thing in a while. It’s been a crazy time since we did last. We made the Top 10 of the Willamette Week’s Portland Best New Band 2012 issue. Feelin’ good about that for sure. Stoked about our solid tour of California; Bay Area is gonna be strong with both shows playin’ with PORCH, featuring ex-Primus guitarist, Todd Huth. Prizehog’s CD Release should be killer at Eli’s Mile High Club in Oakland. Rest of the dates are on our Facebook if you can find it.
We can’t wait to see Rabbits again as it hasn’t been since last year’s East End block party, that we’ve seen ‘em. They’re recording again so we’re eagerly awaiting new songs at our show, June 28th at Mississippi Studios.
Matt T. Ross will have our music video for “Leaving Your Body” airing before our set so watch this thing. The guy does excellent work and we feel very privileged to get a video out of him.
Banana Stand “Live from the Banana Stand Vol. 1” release show is tomorrow, June 10th at the Hawthorne Theatre. Tons of great Portland bands plus some of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet are puttin’ it on AND it’s free!
Hope to see you people out!
We’ve neglected this thing for a while, but only cause we’ve been busy and that’s a real good thing. Sons played Someday Lounge for the first time this last Wednesday with good friends, Blue Skies for Black Hearts, and had a real nice time. BePortland.com did a nice little write-up which can be viewed here.
Friday we helped celebrate the grand re-opening of beloved dive bar, Club 21. The Lordy Lords and Advisory rocked the joint along with us and we had a great time getting shitty and rackin’ up quite the bar tab… Thanks for takin’ care of that, Club 21!
We’ll be taping a live performance and interview for Salem’s CCTV “Doug’s World and Elizabeth Too” on Thursday, October 6th. Also badass, we will be opening for The Fucking Wrath and some band from Tel Aviv, Israel at East End, October 11th. NEW MERCH finally with t-shirts and some bitchin’ vinyl. That’s it for now!
Mix bag so far for the Sons in July. Got to play with some of the best national talent Portland has to offer at last weekend’s East End Block Party. Hung out with Red Fang, Danava, Rabbits, Lord Dying and new friends Therapists and Drunk Ladies. The three of us got pretty day-drunk/crossfaded and had some fun in the sun. Big thanks to Gabe and the wonderful folks that make East End what it is. Thank you to the bands we shared the stage with as well. All great people.
We played our second show of the week in Seattle. Strikingly similar to the first time we played Seattle as we didn’t get paid and we played to friends and family. Seattle is a tough town. I think we’re over it until we get a good chance to go up there. Fun, nonetheless, to see our good friends, Nick, Carly, Lacy, and others. Thanks to Machina Mageddon and Alex’s Hand for the support.
We still got a lot of awesome shit going for us: 7/14 at the Know with good friends The Doseywallips from Seattle, and good pal Brendan McCracken and his project, Eee Eeee, opening. That’s it for now.
