Conversion Party

Dear Hugo Chavez,

Conversion Party @ CMJ


Supreme followers,

It’s official. We are “new music first” this Thursday, October 21 at Union Hall as part of the CMJ Music Marathon. According to the all-powerful internets, we go on at 11 p.m. along with our buddies Radical Dads, and some other fine acts.

Please to join us there if you can. If you can’t, catch us at The Delancey in Manhattan at 2 p.m. (daytime, bitches) on Saturday the 23rd, also part of the Music Marathon. Scratch that. We thought we were playing but we were bumped by fuckery beyond our control. Apologies to Steve.

See you all there.

So much to tell you…

Some big doings in Camp Conversion Party. Let’s launch right in.

First off, album is done. Pretty weird, right? At a certain point, it seemed like it would never end, but it did. What’s not surprising to us is how good it sounds considering the help we had from our producer Sean “Fix It In the Mix” Greenhalgh (Drummer, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah!), and the incredible mixing skills of Phil Palazzolo (New Pornographers, St. Vincent, Ted Leo, Okkervil River) at the luxurious Seaside Lounge. Can’t say enough about these guys. They’re both friends now, but professionally speaking, they did a fantastic job – knowing when to push and when to sit back and let us go. They both have great projects in the works (seriously)…so keep an ear out.

Next up, CMJ. We’ll be playing two shows: Thursday, October 21st @ Union Hall (see above) and Saturday, October 23rd at the Delancey (more info to come). You should come check us out. This is the best rehearsed we’ve ever been and I think we’re really starting to hit our stride as a live band. We’re playing with some good bands, too. Again…weird. We’re looking forward to getting out there and meeting people, which we don’t get to do often enough with our jobs, our band, our off-putting social tendencies.

What else to tell you? We have a new website that maybe you’re enjoying as we speak, where we blog, where we tweet, where we mug for de camera.

Want to send a big up to our new friends Mr. Dream. We’ve yet to link up in person, but something tells me we’re going to hit it off and do some spectacular shows together one of these days. We seem to have some kind of shared DNA or something. Check out their new song over at Stereogum. I’ve been singing one of their older songs all day. Bands who aren’t famous whose music we actually like…again, weird.  The last time that happened I was at a strip bar/cum rock club in Mottville, lying down in front of a kick drum. [sigh]

Not sure what else to tell ya. If you’re a record label, let’s talk. We’re going to write a number on a piece of paper and slide it across the table…
