Bad Things reporting from summer hiatus….

Hey all,

How’s the summer going?  Things are good here in the land of the Bad Things.  We usually lay low in the summer and get our strength back up for the fall and winter and it looks like it’s going to be a busy one this year.

First of all we got Miss Funi’s book “A Haunted Half-Life at Jules Maes Saloon” coming out this fall on Sabella Press.  We’re having a big ‘ol party at Jules Maes with The Wages of Sin on September 11th to celebrate.  This is your chance to pick up a copy and get it signed by the author, the incredibly talented Miss Funi.  She’ll be doing other signings around town and around the country and we’ll keep you as informed as we can about her book and her new life as a…ahem….serious artist.

Bad Things spring report…..

Howdy fans!

Well, we’ve been laying low for the last month or so….writing some new songs that are sounding great and getting ready for Folklife which is coming right up.  It’ll be our fourth year at Folklife and this year we’ll be playing on Sunday, May 24th in the afternoon (1:40pm to be exact) on the Fountain Lawn stage.  Bring the kiddies…this is pretty much the only all-ages show we do during the year and it’s FREE for christ’s sake (although I do suggest donating!)  Then that evening we’ll be throwing our third annual Folklife afterparty at The Can Can with The Bad Mitten Orchestre from Eugene (amazing), Miss Oblivious who will be showing her latest cinematic masterpieces, The Can Can Castaways with The Bad Things, and the always incredible Orkestar Zirkonium closing out the night.  Whew….I got a hangover just thinking  about it.

Hey everybody!

Happy New Year to all you  out there.  It’s lookin’ like it’ll be an exciting year in Bad Things land.  We’ve been working hard on writing some new material so haven’t been booking a whole lot for ’09 but we have a show coming up in January at one of our favorite venues The Tractor with the great Mamie Lavona and Golden Robot Army and another Tractor show in March.  We’re also working on getting down to Portland here in the spring with Danbert Nobacon.   Also some talk of some April Fools shows with Chervona from Portland and another possible collaboration with the Can Can’s Castaways.
