Torch and Twang this Tuesday!

Friday, June 16th, 2006

The Fabulous Heftones, In the GardenBrian and I just heard from from Doug Neal at The Impact radio, 89FM at Michigan State University. He has invited us as The Fabulous Heftones, to perform live on his show, Progressive Torch and Twang, this Tuesday night.

The show is 8pm to Midnight each Tuesday and has been a quality contribution to the Lansing music scene since it started. We are honored to be invited. It would be hard to imagine us categorized as twang, but we do a few numbers that definitely fit into the torch song genre.

It looks like we will be on the show starting around 9pm or so, I’m not sure exactly how it will go. We are happy to be flexible within the needs of the show. It sounds as though they may have us do a few pieces live in the studio and also play a few directly from our In the Garden CD.

We are quite pleased that Doug is supporting us in this way. We are doing what we can to get the word out about our CD release party (which will be on Sunday, June 25 at 7pm, at Magdalena’s Teahouse in Lansing).

I want the CD release party to be a wonderful, fun event. Therefore, I want as many great folks to join us in our celebration as possible. The more folks who know about it, the more potential friends we can have join us for our celebration. (We will perform most of the CD live that day, followed by less formal festivities.)

One of my goals as a performer of these wonderful early-1900’s songs, is to reach all age groups, particularly those who are not yet familiar with our music. At Magdalena’s we achieve that well. (Last time we played at Magdalena’s we had listeners of all ages including a 4 yr old, several teenagers, and several retirees.) The Progressive Torch and Twang show will also help us reach some new younger folks. I’m just delighted.

About Tuesday night: everyone in town, you can tune in on your radio. (I think it’s actually 89.1 but I can’t seem to find that information on their website.) Internet friends, you can listen by going to the 89 WDBM web page. That is, if you are so inclined. We are on Eastern Daylight Savings time, the same as New York City.

I’m still doing emotional “frequent flier miles” on adrenaline from getting this news. I just love doing live radio slots! Such fun fun fun fun…. (yes, I will finally sleep sometime tonight but it won’t be for a while… maybe it is time to clean house again and burn off this energy).
