Though this is our first time working with any of them, our roots run deep with Gost Trio. The three members of the band (Twin Cities expatriates Frank Bevan, Jacob Sharff, and Andrew Beccone) made up three quarters of Capital!Capital some years back (the fourth member of Capital!Capital, Joe Labatt, contributes "West Coast guitar" on the song "Passenger" on this album). Before that, Frank fronted the Freedom Fighters (Amphetamine Reptile).
Anyway, Gost Trio is returning to play their first show in their native Twin Cities on Saturday, December 26 at the Turf Club in St. Paul, along with our old friends The Dynamiters. This will double as a Gost Trio CD release show, though the album will not see national release until January 2010.
Here's a picture of the pretty silk-screened cover:

So, we'd like to get this dog and pony show on the road early 2010 and try to exploit this noise we call music to other parts of the great U S of A.
We are not very savvy when it comes to booking, nor do we know many people outside of our safe zone in the Twin Cities, so any kind of help will be greatly appreciated!!!
Below is a rough idea of what we're thinking. If you can help us get our foot in the door at any of the clubs in said areas, we will buy you drinks, win you carnival stuffed animals, and offer up some delicious deep tissue back rubs...
Saturday, March 13th - Des Moinea, IA
Sunday, March 14th - Omaha, NE
Monday, March 15th - Kansas City, MO or KS
Tuesday, March 16th - Oklahoma City, OK
Wednesday, March 17th - Denton, TX
Thursday, March 18th - Austin, TX (SXSW)
Friday, March 19th - Austin, TX (SXSW)
Saturday, March 20th - Austin, TX (SXSW)
Sunday, March 21st - open
Monday, March 22nd - Little Rock, AR
Tuesday, March 23rd - Memphis, TN
Wednesday, March 24th - Nashville, TN
Thursday, March 25th - St. Louis, MO
Friday, March 26th - Chicago, IL
Saturday, March 27th - Milwaukee/Madison, WI
Again, any help would be awesome and we are serious about the deep tish back rubs!

Just downloaded the new album from The Evening Rig, a band that grew up in & is still based in my very own little town -- but which I needed an East Coast blogger to clue me into. The blogger in question, Mister Mule, says although he’s very much into the band, he isn’t crazy about the particular performance of the lead-off song from that album that is captured in the video below, to which one might well reply: wow, tough audience!
So you be the judge of whether this vid deserves multiple clicks of the old YouTube replay button because I say it does and this surely makes it so? But anyway, hat tip to Mister Mule, & now I’m off to the Cities for one last big honking Whoamusanyway rooftop garden B-Day drink with Ms. Whoamusanyway on account of, I’m back home AND another year older, all at once.

From Minneapolis- No other MOG posts showing, so I'm giving them their props. These guys are alt-country, straight up, raunchy, guitar drivin' rock and rollers. I like that about them. They remind me of Wilco at their raunchiest. They can tone it down a bit, but for the most part, their CD hits you in the face and you just get into the great groove they put out. If you'd like a bit more CLICK THE CD COVER FOR THEIR MYSPACE PLAYER.

St. Paul, Minn. — Somewhere between James Brown and the MC5 lives Chooglin'. The band's name embodies its sound, lyrics and persona. "Keep on keepin' on" - that's Chooglin'. Because what matters most is having a good time.
Chooglin' is set to release its third album this summer on Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum Records. The band stopped by The Current studios to perform live on The Local Show.
