So, I went to update the application that drives our website and ended up bringing the entire thing down for almost a week. Ooops. In the end it was worth it because shit is easier to manage with the newer version but it was not my intention to do something that I couldn't undo.
It has been a while since we've posted any sort of update here and it just so happens that we finally have some shit to talk about. Hope everyone's 2012 is going really good. I tend to ramble a lot when I post news so here is the basics of what we have planned for the early part of this year:
No, you can't download Ian's Party but it is just around the corner and wristbands go on sale tomorrow. You should totally get one and come see all the cool bands at Santa's Village and then come to the last show on the first Sunday of January 2011 at Penny Road Pub. We're playing with a bunch of awesome bands that night and we're sure to please the biker chicks.
Speaking of bikers, we now have a complete MP3 download area in our Merch section. Let's face it, everyone "steals" music these days so we figured why not make it readily available on our website. Here's the catch: the downloads are not free but they're super cheap. You can download every record we've put out (minus Species Bender) for only $12.00. So why steal our music on Mediafire when you could get it straight from the source for almost nothing? If you still want to download our music for free, go for it and make sure you play it for your friends so they know how much we suck too.
See ya'll at Ian's Party.
So, Kris' wife is expecting a baby in the next couple of months and after our next show (on January 29th @ Beat Kitchen) we'll be laying low for a while while they get used to the new arrival. Once they have their baby there will be 3 little Brokedowns dudes running around. And they all belong to Moose.
See the shows calendar for details on the show at the end of this month. There's some pretty rad bands playing.
Hope everyone's new year is off to an awesome start and thank you to everybody who came out to Ian's Party. The two days I was there were a blast and it was great to see a bunch of people who stayed strong through the end. It was awesome.
Till next time,
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.
