The Giraffes on a Rocks Off Boat Cruise
Goes Cube will play June 11th at the Bell House, possibly their final show in 2010:
As individuals, it’s a major year for us, as well. This summer, Matt Tyson (bass) and his wife will welcome twins into the world. Meanwhile, David and his wife are moving out of New York City to an undisclosed location (even to them) somewhere out west.
Obviously, with such big plans (the next full length, the EP), this is not the end of Goes Cube. No way…. The soonest we will be conceivably playing again in NYC would be this fall (we’ve already been invited to play CMJ). However, depending on how things go, it may be longer than that. And consider this: the next time we DO play NYC, it will be as a touring band. After all, it’s not worth David coming all the way back to NYC for one show.
So, it stands to reason we’d put together a really fun show to celebrate…. Joining us on the bill will be two bands who have become incredibly close friends of ours, influences on our music, and who we’ve shared the road with: The Giraffes and East Of The Wall.
Tickets are on sale – its a helluva triple bill.
Goes Cube recently released “Property” b/w “The Ban Has Been Lifted” 7″ via The End Records. Want one? I have FIVE available for giveaway! Details on how to win are at the bottom of this post.
For those of you who can’t make it to the Bell House, you will get a shot to catch East Of The Wall in NYC at The Studio At Webster Hall on July 30 with Black Cobra, Howl, and Struck by Lightning (tickets), and/or The Charleston when they play with Name on August 2nd.
Meanwhile, The Giraffes have been ragin’ away, most recently on a Rocks Off Boat Cruise on June 3rd. Pics from the (absolute) mayhem are below…
