It’s been a while. The Bad Things have been busy wood-shedding and working on some new tunes. Moving into some ska, soul, and old country sounds. We’ve been having a great time with our newest addition, Brendan Patrick Hogan of Miss Mamie Lavona’s White Boy Band on trumpet and keys. He’s pictured above playing with us at the Showbox At The Market this past St. Patty’s Day.We got some shows coming up here in May including Miss Mamie’s CD Release at the Tractor and a show in Twisp with Danbert Nobacon which is always fun. Also looks like we’ll be making appearances at the Northwest Folklife Festival and the Georgetown Music Festival. We’re also working on some fun shows for summer so stay tuned.
This fall we’ll be releasing our collaboration with Danbert Nobacon – “Woebegone.” The album was written by Danbert and features The Bad Things providing musical accompaniment, with former Bad Things chanteuse Miss Funi and Jimmy the Pickpocket providing lead vocals on a couple tracks. Danbert is putting it out on his own Verbal Burlesque Records so look out for that one. We’ll have it for sale here on our website and I’ll be sure to post some teasers once we get the final mix. It sounds great and Bad Things fans are sure to dig it.
Oh, and check out our new Reverb Nation site. Make some comments and become a fan. These blogs will also appear on that site. Here’s a link to our Facebook too.
I think that’s it for now but we’ll be posting new news as it happens!
