No idea where that information comes from. We play on Sunday July 1 at 12:45pm.
One thing that I've kicked around is booking a tour of this acoustic version of the band in nursing homes, like in Wisconsin and North Dakota. Call ourselves The Dandy Charmers or Young Veterans or Flying Aces or something like that. I bet those nursing homes have good little budgets for "entertainment programming" that they normally fuck away on bingo callers or chair aerobics instructors. Instead, we roll in and give these old timers a little dose of rock on their way out.
Not really kidding.
We'd be the last live music that many folks would see before they check out. Probably jaunty it up with some music from these old folks' era (WWII at this point?). Man, to get some lonely old soul whose busy family has caged in a fucking death kennel up and dancing and smiling one last time, to get that two-handed, I-wish-you-didn't-have-to-leave handshake of real appreciation from a pair of those smooth, cool old people hands, that would be doing God's work. Also, taking money from a nursing home, fuck those places, like they're spending it on anything besides keeping oxygen levels barely at a habitability standard and mopheads.
