Mark solo debut

I’ve played in a band pretty much regularly since I was 15 years old and I never once played an unaccompanied set. That is, until Aug. 10 at Mr. Beery’s in East Rockaway. It was a good time, I played some Hutch tunes as well as some Ramones covers and a song by the band The Queers. Here’s a photo:

Thanks

Man was it fun opening for QTZ and the best lies at River Roadhouse last night. It was our first gig in home sweet home Westchester in a few years and it was good to see all our old pals. They are the besest. Here’s a photo by Diane.

Recording update

Last month we started recording three songs we’ll put out as a single type thing.

We’re recording at The Loft in Bronxville with our old pal Stevie Z recording.

It’s our first recording with Liam and Mike so we’re excited about that. Also Johnny Rumbles returned to do drums on one tune so that was fun.

BTW don’t miss our show on Friday at River Roadhouse in Hastings. Peace.

Sunday, Hutchy Sunday

Say Hey! Thanks everyone that came out to our show at Trash Bar in Williamsburg last night. It was a sweaty good time with free PBR in the 8 p.m. hour. Say Hey! Did I say that already?

Anyway, here’s a pic. Come around hang out again soon.

New single coming

We’re heading into the studio in April to record a few new tunes. It’ll be produced by the incomparable Stevie Z.

In the meantime, keep checking our shows page as we plan to continue playing a show a month through spring. We’re playing Trash Bar in Brooklyn this month and heading back to the far reaches of Manhattan for a show at Ding Dong Lounge in April.

Tuesday thanks

Had a blast at Otto’s Shrunken Head, especially considering it was a Tuesday. Cool place, stop by if you get the chance. Here’s a pic of us rocking out:
