We've just added 2 new shows to the calendar: Saturday 4/30 at Churchills Pub, Miami with Off Orbit, Riot Agents, Drawing Bored & more for the Jam Life Springfest, and Friday 5/6 at Kill Your Idol, Miami Beach with our Eskimo brothers, the Super Fuzz.
Because we love to love you, everyone who attends our performance tomorrow night at Wood Tavern in Wynwood (www.woodtavernmiami.com) will be receiving their choice of a free download card or physical copy of our new album, the Deadly Blank-2, releasing tomorrow on iTunes, Amazon, Cd Baby and everywhere that streams/sells/steals music. We hope to see you there. Thanks for reading and listening. -C http://thedeadlyblank.com
Things had been quiet lately on the Deadly Blank social media front, and it was by design. While the band remained together, rehearsing often, writing new material, playing secret one-off shows and eventually completing an album, uncontrollable factors in our members' personal lives required a short hiatus from being Blank. We needed to wait until the time was right to continue the Deadly Blank with the love and contagious energy that has defined this band from the beginning, and that time has come.
So, here we are again, better than ever, ready and happy to rock you.
Thanks for listening,
So, last night went like this: We crossed the border to Broward for our scheduled sound-bang at the very righteous Funky Biscuit. After we were done exposing the residents of Del Boca Vista to our Hialeah-bred rock & roll, the Livesays took the stage. Watching their powerful set left us awe-struck, educated and inspired. We took our motivation back on the road, and headed south to the Miami Lakes Billiard Club, where several of our favorite bands were celebrating the tragically short life of Mike Gomez. Thanks to Stone Miller and the Dirty Rhythm Jesus, who were amazing and allowed us to use their gear, we were able to join the show, stand between the pool tables and sing to some loving souls, "When a problem comes along, you must whip it. Before the cream sits out too long, you must whip it", and it felt great. Thanks to everyone who played a part in this story, and be easy, Mike. Life is a precious thing.
Win! Our performance Tuesday night at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek earned us a spot in the SunFest RocknRoll Shootout Finals on Saturday, April 13th. We will be playing in the pavilion (http://blog.mixonline.com/briefingroom/2013/02/08/seminole-casino-coconut-creek-puts-l-acoustics-in-the-pavilion/), and it will be awesome. The winner gets a spot opening for Cheap Trick, and we think we'd fit in there like honey in a bee hive. More Finals bulletins to follow. In other news: We love Game of Thrones, even the part where a demon shot out of a witch's queefer and killed a guy. With Season 3 only a week away (joy!), Spano's Big Radio Show is holding 'Rock of Thrones', a March Madness- style tournament where 64 local acts compete at phishing for votes. We're in it, so vote for us, and hurry! Winter is coming. You can vote here: http://spanosbigradioshow.com/rock-of-thrones-2013.html
