We did it! On July 10, 2012, we released our little collection of pop philosophy, “Sky is Falling,” to iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, and the rest of the world and on July 13th we played an hour long set at Woodruff’s in Ypsilanti to celebrate the release. We followed some awe-inspiring performances from “Little Island Lake” and “The Finer Things.” (These are bands that I would love to just see, let alone play a show with and they were fantastic.) We had a great turnout as old friends, new friends, and family all came to Woodruff’s to support the release. Not only did we debut our album but also new shirts, stickers, and buttons that we had made thanks to our kickstarter campaign. Those who came gave some rave reviews and we even won over Mr. Steve Battigan , who compared my guitar playing to “Angus Young” (his favorite guitarist). We also did 3 cover songs to honor our kickstarter promises… “Here Comes Your Man” – Pixies for Andrea Battagin-Barbee, “High and Dry” – Radiohead for The Smiths, and “Let It Be” – The Beatles for Michelle Brennan. There was video taken of all three songs that we will be posting on YouTube as soon as we finish editing. Special thanks for Jeff Kopko for taking some documentary footage… it was appreciated and enjoyed.
