Subject:Houston dates and General news/rambles
From:"emily's brain" email@example.com
Emily here. I know, we've been sort of dormant for the
last few months over here in the Clandestine cave. Besides
getting very pale, we've been writing tunes and polishing
songs and tightening up our nefarious plans for world
Or was it that we were planning for our new CD?
I get them mixed up.
No, No. I've just been informed that we -are- indeed
preparing materials for a new CD.
Glad that's cleared up.
With that in mind, I just wanted to let ya'll know about
some upcoming shows.
It's the holidays again, and we're going to be at the Mucky
Duck on Thursday the 27, smack in the middle of the
Christmas/New Years Break.
Bring your family, friends, enemies (but only ones that
won't start a fight) and come hungry.
No, seriously.Bonnie has been plying me with the Steak and
Mushroom pie, and I swear, I may never eat my mother's
again. (but don't tell her, or there'll be trouble)...and
besides, after cooking for 40-odd Cajuns, I'm not sure that
I ever want to wash a dish again.
So, there it is, the December date, all sparkly and ready
for your enjoyment.
Thursday, December 27, 7:30pm (so far)
McGonigel's Mucky Duck, Houston, TX
2425 Norfolk, 77098
We'll also be playing February 22nd at the Mucky Duck.
That's a Friday and that'll be your last chance to see us
before the beautiful & amazing chaos of St. Pats. So book
early, and get a comfy seat.
I understand that there are some tentative dates in Dallas
and Austin, and as soon as the dust clears, we'll get the
info our to everyone out there.
(I also know about a really cool gig coming up in March,
but I'll surprise the east coasters in a few days with that
Check out our website to get a good look at our web maven's
beautiful design, as well as all the upcoming pertinent
information on our domination plans... I mean, the CD and
shows. (wouldn't you confuse them, too?)
(someone tell the rest of the band that we need new photos,
they never listen to me)
In general news of the members, Gregory's been shuttling
around the newest star of the McQueen musical juggernaut.
Marybeth, who played a set for St. Pat's last year, is also
playing the Toys for Tots Benefit, and I understand will be
appearing at St. Pats again.
Al's been a man about the world. He's in Russia right now
doing super secret things with space equipment, wrenches
and big fuzzy hats.
Ej's been making the most beautiful bagpipes that I have
ever seen (and I've seen quite a few), and he's here for
his yearly wintering in Houston. (ask us about how strong
his pipes are! able to withstand a station wagon!) have a
look at them at
and you'll see what I mean.
Emily's been unpacking from her move this summer, and
practicing talking about herself in the third person.
see you soon,
"My strength is as the strength of ten men, for I am wired
to the eyeballs on espresso."
