More Bollocks

Just because you haven’t heard much from us lately, don’t think that we’ve just been sitting around twiddling our boll….I mean thumbs. Au contraire. In fact, what we’ve been doing, in addition to practicing, is organizing. 

First up, we organized ourselves a new drummer, Mike by name, and whom you met via our last blog of a few weeks back. In a former life, Mike managed the band Living Colour; thus his experience in the music business coupled with his drumming skills is a hard combination to beat. Plus, he’s got a ton of fascinating stories, which always helps.

With that all sorted, we also organized ourselves a second year of residency in the fabled Music Building. Room 1107 has, indeed, become a second home.

In addition to our regular co-residents – LiXR (who just released their first single; it’s awesome; listen here), Reality’s Dream and Frank Rovella – we also have occasional visits from some of our favorites: Killdeer, Reservoir Dawgs, and a handful of others. It’s a busy spot producing a lot of good noise.

We also organized ourselves a fantastic gig at the legendary Bitter End. That took place on Friday, January 25th and was even better that we could have imagined.

Thanks to all who came out on a chilly evening. If you didn’t make it and would like to see exactly what happened, just click here. We’ll be back at the Bitter End on Friday, June 7th. So, please put that one in the books. More info closer to the date.

On a nearer horizon is our Saturday, March 30th gig at Desmond’s, the fabled music bar on Park Avenue South. It’s always a really cool place to hear live music. The Bollocks are particularly looking forward to this one, as we will be on a program with our dear friends Reality’s Dream, Bad Kitty and Killdeer. Kick off is at 8pm (we’re on first), so make sure to come along. What else have you got going on? Huh? Nothin! Well, you probably have, but try to make it, anyway.

Still on the subject of organizing, The Dog’s Bollocks are taking their act overseas.

Yes, it’s true. During the last week of May, The Bollocks will be supporting Killdeer on a week-long tour of the UK. (You can only imagine the organization that has gone into this one). Full details will be distributed closer to the date; but, in a nutshell, we’re playing London, Kent, Cheshire, Shropshire and Sheffield. Only two Bollocks can make the trip – Regan and James – so it’s going to be a kind of mini-Bollocks or truncated Bollocks or abbreviated Bollocks; but Killdeer is going full force, so it’s going to be massive. The dog’s bollocks, in fact.

That’s all the news for right now. See you in Desmond’s on March 30th, if not before.

Keep on rocking.

The Dog’s Bollocks.
