Evening Rig blurb from Pioneer Press

Ross Raihala from the St. Paul Pioneer Press had this blurb in his column today:

The Evening Rig started turning heads soon after they formed in 2005 thanks to their raucous, boozy live gigs and an anything-goes attitude that earned them comparison to local better-than-just-a-bar-band-bar-bands ranging from the Replacements to the Hold Steady. They issued their debut a year ago and have already followed it up with the much-stronger "The Evening Rig Is Doing Stuff," a playful and undeniably rocking collection of songs that seem destined to break the band beyond the Twin Cities. Check them out live tonight at the Entry with support from the Dynamiters, the Millionth Word and the Remote Age.

Life's a Bummer reviews Qui's "Baby Kisses"

The beauty of the internet - the blogosphere in particular - is that record reviews can appear years after the initial release. Greg at Life's a Bummer just posted this blurb on our Qui CD. Thanks, Greg!
