Yes, there is a most excellent joke, which writes itself really, at the expense of the 2 Ringos in my band, involving me and the amount of time I spend spoon-feeding material to children...but I cannot make this joke because I love my 2 Ringos.

...and T-shirts are $10 ppd. Gimme your size and your address. If you live outside USA #1 and want a shirt we can work out the shipping part. PM me.

Some footage of these guys from the West Coast BBQ:

I'm pretty sure they could have gone for a few more hours.

The audio from that video should be used for a live record/cassette. That set peeled my wig back. So good!

That was me. I am really sorry I had to miss your set - the midnight starting time put me up against light rail and bus limits with obligations next day :( I did purchase one of your records, though and that made me very happy.

I was really looking forward to seeing you guys play and felt absolutely shitty about leaving - the mental gymnastics around the commute home - apologies. If/when you guys are up in Seattle again, I'll get my shit sorted!

ALTO! is working on a Midwest/East Coast tour this summer. We're looking at last week of June/first week of July.

We're still in need of some help in the following cities:

-Milwaukee or Madison
-Columbus
-Western Mass
-Baltimore or D.C.

If anybody in these places would like to help put a show together, get in touch with me via PM and I will tell you the specific date(s) we are looking for. Thanks much.

There is going to be a track and accompanying video shared before the LP release. Pretty soon I think. But nothing out there right now that I know of.

Hey, our new LP is available for pre-order via Chicago's own Trouble In Mind Records.

It is on bright, kinda strawberry-soda-colored red vinyl.

Midwest/East Coast summer tour dates to follow shortly.

Bad Gateway, brah.

Listened to the song streaming for your new record. Dug it a lot! Look forward to seeing you and meeting you in person.

I imagine things will makes sense all over the map in both cases.
