so its getting warm outside and that means its time for the Slackers to play boat shows and festivals!
We start out with a California weekend, Santa Barbara, the Ink N Iron Festival, and the San Diego.
Then its time for the Slackers annual NYC booze cruise....but this year its 2 nights!!! June 22 and June 23. Go to www.rocksoff.com and get your tix in advance. The boat is a little smaller than in previous years so it will fill up quickly!
Then coming up in July we have our Boston Booze Cruise plus a show in Washington DC.
We finish out the summer playing several festivals in UK (plus Slovenia & Belgium) as well as club dates in UK, Ireland, Austria, Germany, and France.
If you look further down the line you will see we have a bunch of American dates planned for September/October.
We have begun working on a whole new batch of tunes, some of which we have started playing out at shows.
We have a new song, a cover of 'the Wicked Must Survive' coming out on the forthcoming 'Brooklyn Rocksteady' compilation.
We will be releasing a new USB this year, a follow up to 'before there was hellcat' USB 1991-1996. It will cover 1996-2000, the period of Red Light the Question, and Live At Ernesto's. It will include all 5 hrs of music from the 2 days at Ernesto's that we made the original recordings from.
Speaking of the Question, there is a rumor that the long out of print vinyl of the Question might finally see the light of day!
Well, let's hope it comes to pass, and in the meantime, see you guys out there!
