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)!
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:

Hope everyone had a good holiday! Some of us ate too much, some of us drank too much, and Ben got engaged once and almost died twice. Decent long weekend all around.
We are finishing up some recordings right now, which will hopefully be released sooner than later. Until then, we are playing and planning some fun shows, starting tonight at Great Scott. You’ll be able to see us with fellow Boston band LEISURE, the unstoppable CRYSTAL STILTS, and TANKS AMIGO, a group reputedly featuring members of some of our favorite Brooklyn pop bands like the aformentioned STILTS, MY TEENAGE STRIDE, and caUSE co-MOTION. Ay, caramba!
Last-minute show! We’ll be opening for Scratch Acid at the Paradise tonight.

Sooo tomorrow we’re playing a FREE, all-ages show at the Braintree Newbury Comics in the South Shore Plaza as part of their “Nevermind” 20th Anniversary celebration. Seriously. Mark Lind (ex-Ducky Boys) will be playing a bunch of Nirvana songs with the Unloved right after us, too. Someone call 12-year-old me and let him know I finally made it!
On MONDAY we’ll be at Charlie’s Kitchen with Leagues, Fashion Snake, and Life Partners. It’ll be Life Partners’ last show for a little while, so you should probably come check that out.
TUESDAY we will be joining Bozmo, Luau, and Dream Warrior at O’Brien’s for a Matt Denice Benefit Show set up by our friend Betsy. Matt was a young man from Milford who passed away on August 20th when his motorcycle was struck by a drunk driver. All proceeds from this event will go to M.A.D.D in Matt’s name.
We’ll be taking a short break from shows for the rest of October, but you can catch us Andy and I at a few Halloween shows later in the month playing other bands’ songs. More on that soon!
