Spinto de Mayo

Happy May Day, friends.

It's going to be a busy week in the east coast Spinto Band offices. So let's just cut straight to the chase and throw out a bunch of information in no particular order?

First of all, we are playing our [home?]town of Wilmington, Delaware this Thursday. It won't be the usual Spinto Band performance, however. The concert is in part of an all around benefit / celebration to raise money for the Delaware College of Art and Design's scholarship program. The show will be similar to our Kennett Flash show in respect that the Sin City Band will be playing as well. To top things off, Beast Pageant creator and Spinto Band visual collaborator ALBERT BIRNEY will be in attendance, showing some of his artwork. If you feel the need to donate to a good cause, come out and celebrate with us. More information here.

Second of all, later that night Park the Van n00bz (aka recent signings) Generationals will be playing in Philadelphia that very same night at the Kung Fu Necktie. I'm informed this will be their FIRST EVER SHOW ON THE EAST COAST. Historical to the max. They are really good. You should listen to them and see them live! Plus, they're playing with Spinto Band favorites Cheers Elephant and Brian Ashby (of THE TEETH).

Third of all, we will be returning to Washington D.C this Friday opening for pop giants These United States. Our previous Washington D.C show was really one of the best of last tour. Must be all the taxation without representation.

Fourth of all, remember when YouTube was the internet site everybody was talking about? It provided information and entertainment in more than 140 characters. In fact, it had (and still has) thousands of of CHARACTERS. You know, like, entertaining people on it. It was such a big deal that they hosted their own celebratory event and invited us to perform at it! It was one of the all-time strangest events we've had the pleasure of doing and we're very proud of it. Oh yeah, here are some motionless photographs (I know, very anti-YouTube) that were taken during that lost weekend.

the kids wanna know....will you be playing at the rescheduled relay for life event at UD...or are you too afraid of swine flu?

Unfortunately we can't make the rescheduled date, but it has nothing to do with Swine Flu! Half of the band has previous engagements to be out of town that weekend.
