Not sure where I found the time but back in the early days of our website I logged nearly every change/update that I made to our website. Unfortunately, I'm having a hard time getting to the archives our news section from 2003 but at least here's a log of every update I made that year.
Shows and Past Shows updated yet again.
Shows and Past Shows have been updated.
New show posted on the Shows page and the Against Me! show pop up thing when www.thebrokedowns.com loads has been removed. Sorry, forgot that was there.
All apologies to anyone who went to WARP on Saturday thinking we were playing. It was one of those mishaps where someone booked us without informing us. We would have gladly played! Also, we apologize that yesterday did not go as planned. We were really looking forward to playing but circumstances just wouldn't let it happen. It was quite the coincidence, just as I was getting directions online to Joe's house, he instant messaged me letting me know the show was off. Sucky. Oh well, he will be having another show in Spring so we will definitly be down for that. We are looking foward to the shows on October 26th as well! If you need directions to the show(s), drop us a line. Jon and Daka Feelgood will post some news very soon. Peace. Love Grozz.
So here is our brand new website. It's probably the fanciest one we've ever had and it's easy for the non-nerdy dudes in this band to edit. Anybody can register a user name which may make some of the shit in our site more functional but it's definitely not required. We're still kinda new with the fancy part of the internet so if something doesn't work unless you're logged in it's probably because we haven't wrapped our brains around that yet.
Most of the shit from our old website is on here but it may just look different. There may be a few kinks that we have left to work out but for the most part this shit be done.
First off, thanks to everyone who came out to The Hangout on Saturday. It was quite a fun time even though 2 of the 4 of us don't really remember a whole lot from about the time we played onward. I DO remember drinking from a trophy and hijacking the microphone a few too many times. Oh, and thanks to everyone who was at Fest and was kind enough to watch us. From what I heard Fest was quite a blast this year.
We have several shows coming up including Ian's Party. We're playing a couple shows out of state in the middle of December too. Check the shows calendar for the details.
Kris and Rachel are expecting a baby boy in March which is awesome. Between now and March we're hoping to write some new stuff and hopefully record it so Kris can focus his time on being a new dad. Congrats to you both!
On to the news archives, I was able to find news that I/we posted going back to the VERY early days of our website thanks to a cool website called the Internet Archive Wayback Machine. This site is pretty cool but due to the way I designed our website between 2004 and 2006 I can't get to the news we posted then. AND the company we hosted with back then removed all our shit from their servers accidentally in 2006 and we lost everything. Without the Internet Archive site everything from back then would be gone--it's pretty cool.
So, if you have some time to kill at work feel free to go back in our news on this site and you'll see archives going back to 2001. Pretty nifty.
Now that we have a new website format we need a way to migrate our ancient news and posting method. The only way is to post the old shit in a couple articles:

Following our trend since we first created a websie in 2001, here is the first new posting in almost a year. When they invent a way to update this with our minds, we'll be set.
We're currently working on a new full length record and it's almost done. Expect it to be just as bad as everything else we've put out. No word yet on when it's coming out but we're hoping it will be this summer.
Don't forget to JOIN OUR EMAIL LIST!
We just uploaded some new video and have a few more things to upload like some mp3s and other media/photos shit. We also have some shows coming up. Take a gander.
Till next time.
