Tonight will be our first show as Bent Shapes and we’re psyched to be playing with our good friends Shepherdess and stellar San Franciscans Grass Widow at Great Scott. This event was lovingly crafted by those top of the popscorn shramps at Bodies of Water Arts and Crafts - thanks dudes! You can read about how it’s gonna go down here.
We will be hawking our new flexis, too (mail order available soon)!
Our last release, Cull Shorts, is now available via mail order from Cake Time Records. This CD collects most of what we released over the past couple years on cassette, vinyl 7”, and in digital single form, with a previously unreleased version of “Slugger” added.
How to get all our recordings real cheap:
1. Buy Cull Shorts for $5 through our Bandcamp page. You get the CD in the mail, plus an immediate digital download in your choice of format.
2. Download the cassette version of “Slugger” and “Good To Be True” for free (they’re the only two not on Cull Shorts).
If you want, you can also still find some mp3s on blogs for free, or you can download just the songs you want for $1 apiece from the Bandcamp page repping each individual EP or single.
Final reminder! We added a second guitarist and became Bent Shapes. Head over to the new website to check out some songs and see the same pictures I am about to post of our new 7” flexi demo on Cake Time Records (available at our first show as Bent Shapes, with Shepherdess and Grass Widow next Wednesday at Great Scott). Limited edition, bright blue on translucent red, in polybags, and very hard to photograph.
THANKS for coming out to PAs last Saturday to see us plow through all the old songs one last time. We will play our first show as Bent Shapes on May 30th at Great Scott w/ Shepherdess and Grass Widow!
In the meantime, feel free to amuse yourself by clicking around at the Best Music Poll. We are nominated for Best Act, Ben is nominated for Best Male Vocalist, and many of our friends are nominated for other awards. Voting ends tomorrow.
See you soon!
It’s TRUE. Bent Shapes will play its first show on May 30th with Shepherdess and Grass Widow at Great Scott. Girlfriends will be playing all the classics at its last show; next Saturday, May 12th, with The BFs, New Highway Hymnal, Banditas, and Mark Sultan at PA’s Lounge.
Shows where you’re standing outside a nearby drugstore watching multiple fire trucks speeding towards the space going “Please don’t turn right.” don’t usually end up this fun.
BIG_UPS to: Bible Thumper for loaning nearly every band their gear on the 30th day of their 30-day tour, Sean for lending people gear even though he didn’t get to play, Furnace for sacrificing their set due to time constraints, Joe, and WWTA/everyone who set up the show and then had to re-set up the show, Box Fort for hosting Round II last minute, everyone who made the trek over from Round I, and anyone else who played, hung out, or offered refreshments!
We’ve got some pretty wiiiiild shows coming up:
