Well, we had a great day at Read and Shout last Saturday. We played with some amazing bands, for a noble cause, and a lot of our London friends got to see us perform with Vinnie for the first time. The latter was nice in many ways, although Pete got a bit jealous when Vinnie got all the compliments.
Thanks for coming, those of you who managed to get a ticket! And huge credit for putting the whole thing together must go to Matt Stead (whose own band A Fine Day For Sailing were wonderful on the night, an absolute revelation). Here’s a nice picture of us from Jennifer.
The Gods of Rock have kindly decreed that we can follow up all the aforementioned bibliophilic thrills with a great big happy announcement. So here it is: The Sweet Nothings will be playing this year’s Indietracks festival!
Dan and Pete have oftentimes described their appearance at the 2009 event (with The Pete Green Corporate Juggernaut) as the best half hour of their entire bloody lives. All four of us are, as you might imagine, exhilarated beyond measure to have been invited to play this year, and are already scouring the internet for whatever powerful drugs will be needed to overcome the life-threatening illnesses that are sure to strike most of us down 13 minutes before the start of our journey to Butterley.
As if all of that isn’t life-threateningly exciting enough, we’re also proud to be supporting the lovely Math And Physics Club on their UK tour in July. The Seattle-based indiepoppers are coming over to play Indietracks and we’ll be accompanying them for at least some of the gigs they play elsewhere leading up to the festival. Also coming over from the US for Indietracks, also on the tour, also we’re looking forward to playing with, Very Truly Yours. Eeeeeeee, and indeed, eeeee!
