3 days/3 shows--Friday, Saturday, SundayThis is going to be a very, very busy weekend for us--we've got shows every day, Friday through Sunday. It's like a little mini-tour except we get to sleep at home.
Tonight we are very proud to return once more to Mr. T's for the First Friday of the Month. It's been almost exactly a year (364 days, to be exact) since the very last time we hosted First Friday at Mr. T's, in June of 2008. Since then Seasons have taken over and done a stellar job, and it seems fitting that we haven't played T's until tonight. One thing I will note is that, although Mormons are listed on the bill, I talked to Vince the other night and they're probably not going to play; but Seasons, Meho Plaza, Magick Orchids, and ourselves are all set. We play our traditional midnight slot at T's, just like the old days.
Tomorrow's show is a BBQ/warehouse show on the West Side: Consumption 12 at Ironworks. Here's the details:
Consumption 12 at Ironworks

We go on at about 10:30pm. I know that both the Hectors and Shiloe play earlier in the evening, so be sure to come early.
And on Sunday afternoon we're playing Lummis Day 2009 at Sycamore Grove Park in Highland Park. I sat in with a cover band for last year's Lummis Festival, but this time Monolators is playing. We open the "rock stage" of the festival at 1pm. Seasons are playing too! It's free, all-ages, and kid-friendly. Plus apparently there's going to be a puppet show. You doubt me? Like so:
Sycamore Grove Park is at 4701 N. Figueroa Street
Los Angeles, CA 90042
