Pubs, Conventions, and Studio News

I can't believe how busy we've been this year. And this month, we may not be gigging extensively, but we've had our faire share.

Carney's Irish Pub
We had a great show last Tuesday. I hear Carney's has been pretty slow most of the summer. So they were delighted to have us come in and draw a crowd. We had a fun show that yielded some decent live recordings and got to see a bunch of wonderful friends once again. Looks like we're booked again come December. I can't wait to head back there though I know we'll see most of those Nagians at the Texas Renaissance Festival come October.

Now this was a pleasant surprise. The show was a last minute addition to our schedule. We were invited by them months ago, but it wasn't until the beginning of last week that we were confirmed.

ArmadilloCon is a small literary Sci Fi Convention located in Austin. They've been at it for a number of years. I understand this is the place for authors to go if they're looking to get hooked up with publishers and all that.

Well, our shows were on Friday and Saturday evenings. Small, simple shows with a decent-sized crowd considering it was a last minute addition. A good thirty or so folks piled into a small room for a nice and intimate performance. Gotta say, it was a lot of fun. We even got to play a lot more traditional Irish folk songs than I normally expect at Conventions.

Studio Recording
Course, the main item that's kept us swamped for the past two weeks is our upcoming CD of legends, lore, fairy tales, and more. I'd give you the name, but we haven't quite settled on anything. Though if you are interested in the titles named, check out our discussion group.

The CD is coming along brilliantly though. We have about ten tracks pinned down, including the much-requested Jedi Drinking Song. In fact, I need to get going now. Andrew's expecting me at the studio in about thirty minutes so we can nail a few more songs. Slainte!
