Spring Shows for The Skekses

We've added a couple of dates for the season--

On April 25th, we're playing with our friends the Little Big Bangs at CBGB. Shows there are always free and I suspect the spot is smoking friendly. We heart the LBB, they are noisy and fun and I recommend dancing.

On May 11th, we'll be returning to Stag Nite at El Lenador on Cherokee Street (o dear). This show is ridiculously exciting as we will be playing with local blues champions the Rumdrum Ramblers and their buddies from New Orleans (whose name/s I will post forthwith, promise). Come check out the Ramblers before two-thirds of them disappear into the wild blue yonder with that madman LaFarge. Stag Nite is always five bucks at the door, with $1 Stags for as long as they last (or maybe 11pm). The show will start at 9--for realsies.

I heard a rumor about a show at the end of May, ya know, but I'll get the details later.

Live Video--Burden o Leather at Stag Nite

What would we do without Stag Nite? Its current home is El Lenador on Cherokee Street, where Johnny Vegas plies us with beer and forces even the most curmudgeonly of rockers to have a good damn time.

This is from our Stag Nite show on Feb 23rd (or thereabouts). We played with Kill a Drifter (bad boys from the Il-side of the river) and Bob Reuter's Alley Ghost (Bob barely made it to the show after an adventurous week touring the midwest).

Notes on the Collapse of an Alternate Universe

Our first record, Notes on the Collapse of an Alternate Universe, is now available at Vintage Vinyl, Apop Records, or--for those of you who are ready for some instant gratification--for free streaming right here!

If you like what you hear, buy a digital copy for a measly $8, and come to some of our shows.
