Hi all,

In case you missed it in previous announcements, I'm in a band called New Missionaries. We're doing some of my old material and some brand new material.

And, we will be playing our debut set THIS FRIDAY, APRIL 12th at  TRANSISTOR

(this will be a low-volume set since this is an in-store show!)

Transistor is a very cool shop located at 3819 N. Lincoln Ave (near Addison)

It's FREE and BYOB!

Charlie Crane, our lead guitarist, starts off the night with a solo set at 7:30, then New Missionaries go on at 8:15, followed by Airline-X at around 9:15.

Here's our FB invite: http://www.facebook.com/events/539629632727272/

And good news for those who are not in Chicago or cannot make it:

THERE WILL BE AUDIO AND VIDEO LIVE FEED OF ALL OF THE PERFORMANCES! (sorry, I didn't mean to scream... I just got excited) Just go to the Transistor website on Friday, 8:15 CST: transistorchicago.com

Other News!

New Missionaries has a radio interview with WORT, 89.9FM in Madison, WI on Friday, April 26th to promote our upcoming show there at the Frequency on the April 29th. More news on this later...

And we will be recording our EP at the end of the month... three songs that I have not recorded in any capacity before. We did an impromptu acoustic recording of my song "Invitation." Go here to see the video, and you can go here to purchase the track. All proceeds go to help fund our recording session... please consider buying the track... it's just a $1 (and they even let you pay more if you're feeling extra generous!).

Also, we have ourselves a new bass player who is great and fits right in... he's also a new Brooklyn-to-Chicago transplant. His name is Eric Gannon and we are proud to have him be part of the band. You can read more about Eric -- and the rest of us -- on our tumblr page: http://newmissionaries.tumblr.com

Ok, that's a lot of news and I thought I'd just be sending a quick show announcement. Thanks for sticking with me 'til the end...

"Russo is one talented performer. And Fragile Animal is one of those indie gems you’ll immediately want to spread the word about."  Jonathan Sanders, Hear! Hear!

"radiant and magical… Fragile is Russo’s stunning tour de force."  Mark Suppanz, The Big Takeover

"the album presents ten richly layered, melodic rock songs mixing literate, attentively crafted singer-songwriter fare with occasional touches of garage-rock edginess and NYC chug."  The Archivist, Folly Of Youth
