as the dust settles from our busy spring, the slackers are getting some well deserved R & R.
but our rest will not be for long, as august comes around we will resume our mission of bringing word of the Slackers' new cd, the great rocksteady swindle to the world. first up, will be a festival heavy tour of europe including stops in spain, the uk, belgium, holland, germany, and norway. second, as september rolls around, we will be ending summer with our traditional new york and boston boat gigs. third, in october we will be hitting the midwest and canada with extended touring through ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, missouri, indiana, illinois, ontario, and quebec. We havent seen those guys for a while and looking at getting reacquainted.
In case you've been under a rock somewhere, our latest cd is the Great Rocksteady Swindle. There are a million ways to hear it. You can get it as a cd, vinyl, or as a download.
In other news, we have put out a new whatevski live release, 'live on the west side.' it features music from recent release parties. check it out at www.whatevski.org
Also, the Lost & Found vinyl is now out! check it out at the slackers' merch table or at the paper or plastic website.
and yes, although we are taking the month of july off from the slackers, we are not exactly relaxing. Vic is playing solo gigs with the Forthrights and Vic, Marcus, and Ara are doing Sic N Mad. Agent Jay is doing several regular dj nights in manhattan and brooklyn as well as working on the next crazy baldhead album. And yes, Im doing Rocksteady 7 at two boots in brooklyn on july 16.
so its been a fun first half of the year for the slackers, lets hope the 2nd half is even better!
see you out there!
