Listen to the Latest Slander

The ever-improving Uncle Sonny and Lazy Way Out brought the heat to Waterbury last night for some pre-game Turkey Day festivities.  Between the smoking, improv-heavy "Don't Stop Lover" and a some fun debut covers, this was a nice prep for the inevitable turkey butt that will ensue later on tonight.  Check out some videos below!

"Don't Stop Lover"

"With a Little Help from My Friends"

"Pump It Up"

Happy Thanksgiving, all!

I Promise, Everything's Fine.

"And they said we'd never make it"
- BC 11/9/2013

In the midst of our daily trials and tribulations, it's important to remember that with a little endurance, at end of the day, everything is fine.  With a little courage, try to remember that everything is fine. With some confidence, know that EVERYTHING IS FINE.

Sometimes it takes a power trio to remind us of these things.

My apologies for all the positive chatter, but as GM played tonight, I sincerely had a "look to the cookie" moment:

Time and time again, this band never fails to bring a group of people together and help us remember the things we truly value- the company of our friends (and "Whale" jams). I'm pretty fucking thankful for that periodic reminder.

 End rant.

All dick sucking bullshit aside, the following jams are supremely badass and should stay in your rotation for quite a while. If you don't agree, we don't have much in common and you should stop reading my blog.
