Playing the Golden West next week with Xiu Xiu, and since it's the day before ScapeScape, we will be doing somethin a lil different as a treat. We're cooking up an acoustic amalgam of Celebration. A completely different instrumentation. A small space version of us. Hope to see you there. xoxo KF

Death (Blood is the Brine)
Working with these archetypal energies, through some coincidence has engaged a different but more magical understanding of the creative process and for us, the sharing of this has become mulitdimensional , using our music as the springboard for the videos, art, installations, readings, ceremony and ultimately live performance as the communal expression. Our current incarnation has had to have an elastic approach to our live show, for a number of reasons. For instance we had been a six piece but performed as every possible subtraction down to two. *
we performed as a 3 peice, playing songs from our first record 3 piece days with Sean, David and I
(though technically Walker joined us on tambourine)
But at Mobtown Studio's we were asked to play an acoustic set in a 5x10 space, as part of their brilliant space, sonic and psychic imposed restriction session series called "Microshow". With Five of us ( Walker, Tony. David, Sean and I) we wove an acoustic version of us that gave us a new way of seeing ourselves and our music.
NOW it's with that spirit that we have broken down the song writing process into a flow of multidimensional expression. So like our songs, some shows will be the full electric version and some shows will be the more intimate vaudevillian acoustic-ish version.
This April 28th and 29th we will perform as the latter.
We're playing April 28th in Irvington, NY at the Black Cat Cafe. It'll be an early all ages show in the teeny cafe on Main St from 6-8pm. Sunday the 29th will be at Zebulon in Brooklyn NY... one of my most favorite places in the galaxy and with our dear friends The Divining Rod.
* additional friend/family members continue to grace us with their incredible talents lately such as .... Jef Brown and Ryan Sawyer.
