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!

For tickets, showtimes and more information, head on over to our Shows page!

See you at the shows. xoxo

Something old, something new

Happy Monday, everyone! We had a blast playing at the San Jose Museum of Art last week. Matt even played a couple of songs from his solo album Gargantuan Acoustic Locator during our intermission (yes, we had an intermission – it was fancy).

We have a few more local shows lined up until we head up north once again to play Portland and Seattle (more details on that to come). Our next show is Saturday, July 28 at California Extreme 2012. California Extreme is an awesome annual event in Santa Clara with free play pinball machines, arcades and more! For more information, visit our shows page or http://www.caextreme.org/

We’ll also be playing Convergence again this year at San Francisco’s Japantown Peace Plaza on Saturday, August 25.

At both of these shows, we’ll be selling our new T-shirts, designed by Awkward Terrible‘s Sam Decimus. We miss those guys, but we’ll be touring up the northwest with them and crashfaster in late August. Take a first peek at the new shirt design below!

Watch this space for new updates. Leading up to our northwest tour, we’ll be working on a new release and lots of other fun stuff!

Cinco de Mayo!

We’ll be playing the rockingest, rollingest Cinco de Mayo at Homestead Lanes in Cupertino! We’ll be sharing the stage with friends The Phenomenauts and The Bloodtypes (Portland)!

You can also find details on the show on our SHOWS page.
