What’s new, Pussycat?

We’re still here…. rocking, smoking, and barking.

Things have slowed a little bit, and that’s totally by design… we’ve gotta work on the next record some time.

Upcoming dates look like this:

  • 05.24.14 @ The Double Door Inn in Charlotte, NC, with The Leadville Social Club
  • 06.14.14 @ The Shed (Smoky Mountain Harley Davidson) with Shonna Tucker & Eye Candy
  • 06.20.14 @ The Pilot Light with Wreckless Eric… this is a duo show.
  • 06.28.14 @ Big Fatty’s Bands, Beer & BBQ Bash… details forthcoming
  • 07.19.14 @ The Pour House in Raleigh, NC, … details forthcoming

We have 7 songs in the can from a session at WaveLab in Tucson last August. We have at least that many ready to record at WaveLab again in August. Our next release will also include recordings from a couple of side projects that we’re really excited about. So, stay tuned!

And if yer in Charlotte this weekend, come see us… we’ll play some songs for ya.


TL3 Update…

Hey, y’all… we’ve been remiss in updating this site with news, so here’s the latest scoopables.

We’re slowing down a little bit this summer (of course “a little bit” is relative with us), so we can prepare for our annual trek to WaveLab Studio in Tucson. We recorded 7 songs last August, and probably have at least that many to record this upcoming session.

Also, our friends John Harvey & Mary Podio (Top Hat Recording) have moved to Knoxville and will soon be building their own facility. In the meantime we will be helping them test their temporary recording setup. John & Mary are dear friends and we are awfully glad to have them in town.

That being said, we’re starting to target our next release. We’re potentially looking at November 7, but that’s pure speculation on our part.

We’ve got a few shows coming up, so check our schedule.

Rhythm & Blooms Festival 2014

We’re awfully proud to be part of the super fab lineup for the 2014 Rhythm & Blooms Festival the first weekend in April here in Knoxville.

Check out their web site and keep an eye out for the schedule… looks like it’s going to be an awesome weekend.


Top 10s, 100s, 500s, etc.

we don’t generally expect to be on anyone’s top-whatever lists… especially when your newest release was way early in the year. we kinda figure that by now, with so many releases out there all year long… well… we just figured that “devil’s rope” was gonna get lost in the shuffle.

but, the KDHX DJs Top 10 Albums of 2013 list came out today, and Steve Pick included “Devil’s Rope” in his list and we are awfully proud to be there with some pretty impressive company.

go. read. dig.

and, thanks, Steve!
