Though I am mega excited for this weekends East Side Music Tour there is ANOTHER show that I am equally excited for March 8th w/ Parallel, and The Belle Weather at our favorite place in the world, Linnemans *home field advantage!!
Some for The Rusty Nickel and I will be joined by the wonderful violin talents of Miss Gina Romantini. We couldn’t be more thrill to hear this women shred some fiddle all over our shitty songs. Don’t miss this very special night.
Daniel E. Mitchell and I (Mouse) will be embarking on a mini tour this weekend with our boys James and Lucas. I am very excited to for the love. Come hang our with us tonight atUgly Brothers House for a little gathering “send off” w/Old Earth, Donovan The Shark, Shelly Schauer and some of the UB will be sharing their songs with us. Good times are a sure thing. Here are a few links for the rest of our tour below:
Feb 20th: New Lenox, IL - White House Inn via Midwest Action *we are a featured performers at their open mic!
Photo by Michael Goelzer in prep for Milwaukee Home’s SXSW stage. How exactly, I don’t know. But they were like “Dude, we’re taking cool pictures down at The Hotel Foster. Come!” and I was all like “A chance to look cool!? Count me in” As if I didn’t need more of a reason to to be a vain old fuck. I look old anyway. Don’t mind me. I’m just Waittsin’ ova here.
Earlier this summer I sat down with Impose to chat about our music, bands, and our new Rusty LP. Big love to Anthony Mark Happel for working his ass off and putting in the love on this one! There is even a nice album review. Check it friends!
Fuzz pic from our show at BBC last Friday for A.V. Club Milwaukee’s Swag Sale “The Onion: Everthing Must Go” Such a bummer that they are ending their run as a press outlet in MKE. They have done so much for our music scene over the years exposing tons of independent artists. Hell, we fall under that list! Getting to finally meet the staff that has helped us so much over the years was nice. Bizarre that it took us so long to finally share a drink. It was enjoyed none the less! There will be more drinks in other forms soon. Its only a name right? The “staff” seems eager to focus their energy towards a new project. Maybe they’ll cook something cooler up!
"Given that Myles Coyne splits his time between several local bands, including bustling indie-rockers Animals in Human Attire and the unrelenting post-hardcore outfit Temple (who released their own ferocious album this year, The Conscience of the King), it’s not too surprising that Coyne’s namesake band is a musically polyamorous affair. Coyne’s Rusty Nickel Band is a folk ensemble first and foremost, but they find a lot wiggle room in that loose classification, skipping from rustic, fingerpicked musings in the Bob Dylan mold to shambolic, Titus Andronicus-esque punk-rock combustions.”
