the band smoothie and new dates

Postby Liesbeth » Wed Sep 21, 2005 2:10 pm

thelongwinters.com now has the new and improved bio info on the band, with interesting new factoids about current and old band members (quick guess before you read it: who is the band's smoothie?)

and the tour page announces some new gigs: an instore in Birmingham AL that was two days ago, the San Francisco gig with the Fiery Furnaces on 1 October which had been mentioned here somewhere before, AND a radio performance on Cincinatti's WOXY radio station, on Friday 23 September at 10.30 pm EDT.
Sorry Heather, nothing about Norman OK on there yet.

The good news is that WOXY.com has live webcast. The bad news is, it doesn't seem to have an archive thingie, so I guess that means I should be awake at 4.30 am to hear it (if I'm not making a mistake in the time zone calculations).

... enforced by the mighty 2-people-front that is you and me.

by the way, the WOXY-appearance should be 6 hours later in Europe, shouldn't it? :) That is, 4 p.m.


EDIT: i really hope merlin listened to this.

fxxx fxxx fxxx, I mixed up my AM with my PM, and I so could have listened to this! Why doesn't the whole world go by the 24:00 hour system, eh?
Please tell me that someone recorded this, or very gently break it to me what I missed.

ps I just realised that I wouldn't really wanted to have missed what I was doing at 4pm, so...

It looks like you can buy those tracks?!?

Does anybody want to be the adventurous one to try it first?

Hmmm...

Oh, CRAP! I wish I would have been home.... I could have recorded it and uploaded it for ya'll.... CRAP!!!! I wonder if it'll play again? How much are the tracks? I think I may buy them.

I'm a slave to the music, man. damnit.

"More Than Shapes" . . .

Let's all pretend to be really pissed about it, while overlooking the fact that they dig Long Winters tunes. For kicks?

the adventure ended with one click on the buy button: it leads to links to several online music stores, with the disclaimer that not everything they play is available, which would be very true for an in-studio live performance...

so a new adventure arrives: somehow Barsuk lists an on-air performance for KDHX today at 4pm local time, which is in less that an hour. I'm highly doubtful that this is actually true, because it isn't mentioned on any other concert list and because the program schedule for 4pm mentions a eastern European folk show, but I'm staying tuned anyway...
