Gonna give it a first listen when I go pick up the kid from dance camp. Alto! is car music, in my world.

ALTO has closed up shop. Thanks to everyone on this forum who listened and/or helped us out in some way.

I particularly want to thank Conan and Ben Abraham for having us on 2 West Coast PRF BBQs, and Jonah and everyone else involved with the 2016 Chicago BBQ for having us there.

Maybe you've stopped playing, but I haven't stopped listening. Or wearing that hideous blue t-shirt.

Thanks for the fun.

Believe it or not, I’ve played Medford twice.
There is a good venue there, the guy that runs it is a total rockist though.

Probably not the best place for ALTO!

Nice! I'll mark the calendar for the Acme records show. That place is awesome.
Also: Dubuque with Lung is great, we're playing with them a few days later in Madison and Milwaukee. Love that band.
