We had an awesome time showing up at the open mic night at 10th Street Live in Kenilworth, NJ. Our good friend Kevin runs the place and I must say it’s an awesome place. You should all check it out:


We got to see some awesome performers and hang with some really rad people, especially some great friends of ours, the guys from Socratic. It was so good to see them again. It was super gnarly to share our music with them as well.

A little history, I left film school to work with them and I never looked back. It was an amazing experience, developed great friendships, and I think we all did some sweet work together:

They are awesome guys and you should all check out Socratic if you haven’t yet. They just released a rad new album:

Throughout the night we saw a rad variety of artists. Two of which were members of The Ugly Club (http://www.facebook.com/theuglyclub), another awesome band. Lou Panico of Socratic also did a solo performance (he has the voice of a very handsome angel). Not to mention the fact that another performer actually proposed at the end of his set (she said yes!). So as you can tell, it’s quite an exciting time and we definitely plan to go back. Open mic is every Monday, so go out and support local artists, and who knows, you may catch us there again!

We performed four songs including the live premiere of Risky Business. From what I hear we have some video of our set, so as soon as any of it is up, we won’t be greedy, we’ll share!

So please, check out the venue, all the other artists, and hopefully you continue to check out and share our music as well!

Thanks for reading, 

Peace, love, penguins, muppets, and tom hanks,
