Re: The Bismarck -15th Anniversary 'Reunion' Shows

Postby chris jury on Wed Oct 11, 2017 5:08 pm

Hey Team- Just a heads up that we are doing 2 shows in early November for our 15th Anniversary, rejoined by Nate in good old 4 piece format. We had our first such practice last night, and it went pretty well. We are playing a few off of each release and have taken a number of requests.

First show is Sat. Nov 4 at the Rendezvous w/ SEMINARS

Second is at The Valley in Tacoma on Sat. Nov. 11 w/ a whole pile of other bands.

Inbetween the 2 shows, Thom from SEMINARS and I are hosting a Tour Stories night at the High Dive, on Nov 7th. It will be a benefit for Rain City Rock Camp. There will be raffles.

Shameful, but contractually obligated bump for the Rendezvous show this saturday. Nov 4.

We have selected 12 songs, a smattering from every release over the years. a few requests made the cut. We even practiced a couple times. We decided not to add the Prophets of Addiction to the bill. You are welcome. Come see Seminars rip it up.

On the 7th at the High Dive we will be doing a storytelling event- Come hear me tell about the origin of the "shit motherfucker, shit fucking bitch, I'm the fucking shit..." that you might have heard on the Bismarck and Police Teeth records. all sorts of other musicians will tell better stories.

On the 11th we will be playing at The Valley in Tacoma, with Battersea and a couple other bands... we will opt for 8 songs that night.

Sat March 31, Cincinnati, Southgate House Revival, Matinee
Sat March 31- evening- Open
Sun April 1- open

Anyone has ideas for the holes, we're happy to take suggestions.

The Port should be pretty great, hope the thing on the 6th pulls through, either way you are welcome to crash at Der Neutron Haus.

You guys aren't going to do a kickoff show? How about a return show?

Alright- a quick bump to feel like I did my part promoting on the forum. We are all packed up and ready to fly out VERY early on friday. We have done all our silly, bismarck-centric things, like disassembling our guitars and packing them in a giant duffle bag, and loading shirts into the cymbal case. looking forward to seeing a lot of you over the next few days.

Fri 3-30: Dayton OH, Blind Bob's w/ The Loveless +TBA
Sat 3-31: Newport, KY, Southgate House Revival w/ Knife the Symphony, GRLwood and Swoop. Free Matinee, All Ages!
Sun 4-1: Southbend, IN, Zen Cafe w/ Korean Jeans, Antlercat 6pm
Mon 4-2: Kalamazoo, MI, Shakespear's w/ Antlercat
Tues 4-3: Madison, WI, Art-In w/ Coordinated Suicides
Weds 4-4: Dubuque, IA, Olliewood Skate Park 5pm
Thurs 4-5: Chicago, IL, Quencher's w/ Mint Mile, Hungry Man and Korean Jeans
Fri 4-6, Milwaukee, WI, Frank's Power Plant- Wizard' 40th Bday, w/ Ape in a Tank and Bon Air.

Thanks everyone- The tour turned out great- Lots of fun, lots of hanging out w/ quality PRF folks. also shockingly uneventful, by BSMK standards- 2 blizzards, 2 broken pedals, 0 missed flights.

Video coming in a few months.

Best not to get hooked on Chex Mix. Those little bags they give you are just a gateway to a much larger problem.

It gets bad when you start mixing bags or even brands. Pro tip - get a bag of traditional Chex Mix then cut it with half a bag of the Gardetto's "only rye chips" bag and you're set.
