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

Saturday, September 29, 2012

Thursday, November 8, 2012 – FINAL SHOW
@ DNA Lounge, San Francisco

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!

The Glowing Stars on SF Weekly’s All Shook Down Blog

 

If you’re in San Francisco this weekend, be sure to check out Convergence MMXII and the Fourth Annual J-Pop Summit at Japantown Peace Plaza. We’ll be playing a free show right outside at noon! SF Weekly’s music blog All Shook Down wrote a cool article about it today titled “The Video Game-Inspired Music of S.F.’s J-Pop Summit: A Chiptune Off the Old Block.

This is our last local show for a while, and the last show before we kick off our mini Northwest tour with crashfaster, minusbaby and more! First, we’ll be hitting up Slabtown in Portland, OR and playing with awesome Portland punk rock band The Bloodtypes on Wednesday, August 29. Then on Thursday, August 30, we’ll be playing a pre-PAX showcase at Funhouse in Seattle with Danimal Cannon, Freaky DNA and more!

See you at the shows. xoxo
