Next Show: Opening Set for SHOOTER JENNINGS
Tuesday, May 21 - 8 p.m. sharp!
HUGE NEWS! We have been selected to open up for National Touring Act Shooter Jennings at The Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday, May 21st. This is a tremendous break for us as Shooter is not only one of our favorite artists but also the host of Sirius Radio's Outlaw Country Show. Also, Bowery Ballroom was recently named the number one music venue in America for its size (550 people). We can't wait! Tickets are available on our shows page. Get them now!
We have something that could be really cool on our radar but for the time being the next show is our "First Wednesday of the Month" residency gig at the 11th St. Bar. We hope to see you on May 1st… Keep your eyes peeled and your fingers crossed for something cool coming up.
Unbelievable turnout for the show at Bitter End. Thank you to those of you that sent some kind comments after watching on the live webcast. We're glad to know that you're out there and hope to get to wherever you are soon!
Thanks to everyone that made it out to last nights "First Wednesday of the Month" residency show at 11th St. Bar. Next up is a huge one as we take the stage at Greenwich Village Landmark The Bitter End on Thursday, April 11th. We hope to see you there!
Amazing turnout at Arlene Grocery! Thank you all for packing the room. We got some good video that should be up on YouTube soon. Keep your eyes peeled...
Come and join us on Thursday, February 28th at Arlene Grocery at 10pm for our first performance at this Lower East Side mainstay. Advanced tix are $8 and are available on the Arlene Grocery website.
Thanks to everyone that came out to last nights show! It was nice to get back to the 11th St Bar. The residency gigs there are always very laid back and fun. We got to do a lot of covers last night that we haven't played in months. We also got to debut a new song, "Good Times For The Road" and revisited a few old ones. Get ready for the next one. Arlene Grocery is up next!
We have all of the new merch and are getting ready to send it out to all of you Kickstarter supporters out there. The Tshirts look amazing! We will also have all of the stuff at our next show on February 6th for our Monthly residency gig. Look for more dates to be announced soon...
Sorry for the late notice folks but due to illness we have to cancel our show tonight at the 11th St Bar. We'll be back there next month.
Happy New Year from The East River Bandits! Shake off your hangover and come see us tomorrow night at our Monthly residency gig at the 11th St. Bar. Its not only the first Wednesday of the Month but of the whole year!
Thank you to everyone that came to our SOLD OUT CD RELEASE SHOW at Mercury Lounge! We don't even know what to say we are so excited! Its going to be a great 2013!! Pick up your physical copy now at CDBaby.com or our next show or get the digital album on iTunes and every other service out there.
We hope that all of you Kickstarter Backers are enjoying listening to your advanced copy of the Digital Download! We can't wait to see you singing along this Thursday atMercury Lounge. We are on at 8pm sharp but don't missWormburner and Lifeguard Nights that are both also on the bill. The night ends with a set full of Christmas songs by members of all 3 bands. See you there!
Huge thanks to JustinK (justink.info) for his incredible CD design! He hit it out of the park on this one and our Kickstarter donors will be able to hear the record very soon!! Also don't forget about our CD release at Mercury Lounge next Thursday the 20th at 8 p.m. It's going to be an exciting night!
We did it! We raised our Kickstarter funds and are going to be putting out an album. The actual physical album won't be ready on the day of our show at Mercury Lounge but all of our Kickstarter Supporters will already have their advanced copies of the Digital Download and it will be on iTunes that day. Come down and help us celebrate!
On top of that our buddies Life Guard Nights are on before us and friends Wormburner are on after us... AND on top of that the entire night is going to end with a full set of your favorite holiday songs played by all different musicians from throughout the night!
We are 94% of the way there!!! Who's going to be the person that puts us over the top and finalizes us getting our kickstarter goal?
Thanks to those of you that saw our set last night at the Downtown Elves Charity Bash. It was our pleasure to share the stage with Steve Earle and raise some money for a great cause. On another amazing note, we passed $10,000 today on our Kickstarter Campaign! We're almost there, keep on telling your friends! Finally, come down to our monthly residency gig this Wednesday at 11th St. Bar.
Come down to the 11th St. Bar tonight and help us raise money for the Downtown Elves Charity. Our set is scheduled for 8:30pm but there are tons of other amazing musical acts as well as great items for silent auction and drink specials. Hope to see you there!
Thank you to those of you that found the time during a very busy Thanksgiving Weekend to pledge to our Kickstarter Campaign. With a very small number of contributors we are already 36% of the way to our goal! For those of you that have not yet had the time please take this opportunity to check it out at your convenience. Every tiny little bit helps out a lot!
Another huge help to us is those of you that have reposted the link to your various social networking sites. We can't thank you all enough for your support. Please help us keep this thing going and support Independent Music!
We’ve been working hard for the last year writing original material for our debut record. We’ve put in the blood, sweat and tears but now we need your help. Recording an album independently gives us incredible artistic freedom but it means that the financing falls to us. We hope to give you a high-quality record before the end of the year. By visiting our Kickstarter site and contributing whatever you can you will be supporting our band and our dreams. Original voices in any form of art need to be encouraged, and we appreciate your help from the bottom of our hearts.
If you’ve ever had a record that meant the world to you, then you can understand how we feel about ours. Please help us make this dream come true by sharing this with any and all who love music, fun, and the way the two come together to make a better world.
Two announcements... 1) all proceeds from our show tonight will be donated to the "In Good Hands Hospitality Relief Fund" to help out the Rockaways and Breezy Point. 2) We are officially submitted to the South By Southwest Music Festival (fingers crossed!)
Just a reminder that we will be playing our first ever Festival Gig this Saturday, Oct 13th. We will be playing at 4pm at the Jersey City 4th Street Art and Music Festival as the fourth of eight bands. We look forward to seeing our Jersey friends out there and to our NYC fans it's super easy to get to from the PATH train. Great music, great artists, great comedians, great food and beer all day long!
Special thanks to our good friends at Horseshoe Bar! 7B for having us do a late night 'whiskey set' on our way home from rehearsal last night even though the bar was closed for a movie shoot! Hope to see you all at our show Wednesday night at 11th St. Bar.
We're back after a month off for our "First Wednesday of the Month Residency Show". Mark your calendars and come on down to The 11th St. Bar.
We are sorry to announce that our "First Wednesday of the Month" residency gig at 11th St. Bar is cancelled for September 5th due to the first NFL game of the year. We'll be back in October on Wednesday the 3rd...
This Wednesday is our monthly residency show at 11th Street Bar. If you haven't seen us this summer, we've been busy getting started making our first record! KICKSTARTER information is on its way soon. Come out Wednesday and get a preview of what's to come this fall!
