Farewell Tomorrow

It’s almost here. For some, this will be their first The Glowing Stars show and their last. For others, this may be their second time seeing us, or their sixteenth. Some people are even flying in from other cities, states and even the other side of the country!

Wherever you’re coming from, we’re forever grateful for your support and look forward to rocking out with you on this final show tomorrow at 8 p.m. Advance tickets are still available at http://www.dnalounge.com/calendar/2012/11-08.html , or you can get your tickets at the door for $3 more.

You can also RSVP on Facebook here, to let your friends know you’re attending the most ass-kicking farewell show of the year! https://www.facebook.com/events/408973905833583/

See you all tomorrow night!

We played the Convergence MMXII/J-Pop Summit earlier today with a three-piece horn section and, as always, had a ton of fun. Major thanks to the people who run the show! And thanks to all to those who came out. If you stuck around ’til the end, you probably heard that that was our second-to-last San Francisco show and that our last show will ultimately be on Thursday, November 8 at the DNA Lounge.

We can’t even put into words how amazing the last two years have been. This band has taken us so many places we never expected, and introduced us to some of the coolest people on the planet. We’ll save the sap for our last post, especially since there is still quite a few rock left in us until November 8th! Here are our complete list of upcoming shows until it’s officially over:

Wednesday, August 29, 2012
@ Slabtown, Portland, OR
With The Bloodtypes, crashfaster and minusbaby | 8:30PM | $5 | 21+ | Facebook | flyer

Thursday, August 30, 2012
@ Funhouse, Seattle, WA
With crashfaster, minusbaby, Danimal Cannon, Freaky DNA, Hello The Future, Tracer and DJ Mr. Smith | 7PM | $10 | 21+ | Facebook | flyer

If you like us even a little bit, we strongly encourage you to attend our last show at the DNA Lounge. We’ll announce the specifics soon, but with this dream lineup, it’s going to be one hell of a party. And because it’s the DNA Lounge, those not in San Francisco will be able to watch the livestream online.

Thanks again to everyone who has supported us, whether it was by coming out to our shows, downloading our music, buying our stuff, making us cool things, or offering us shows. See you at the next one!

<3,
