Hello, beloved Southside Desire supporters!
The record is done and it sounds great! Songs to Love and Die To and all of the Kickstarter packages are assembled and ready to be delivered, picked up, sent out, etc.
We are having a big, fat record release party on Saturday October 27 at the Nomad Pub in Minneapolis. Scroll down for more info about this really big show. We will have Kickstarter packages there for many of you to pick up.
We are also playing at Hymie's Vintage Records on Tuesday October 30 at 6 PM. This will be an all-ages event, so for those of you who are in-town but can't find sitters on Saturday night, this is your night! We'll be bringing Kickstarter packages there, too, for folks to pick up.
If you live out of town, we will be shipping your packages within a week (unless you already specified that you'd rather pick it up in person), and you can look forward to receiving some fun mail. Clean off your record players!
Finally, if you live in town, but can't make it to either of these shows, let someone in the band know, and we will be happy to deliver it to you. Of course, we're so excited to get these records to you that we're already delivering some of the packages so you can sing along at the shows!
I would like to leave you with some of the great advance press we've been getting about our album in the last few weeks. We wouldn't even have a record to praise if not for all of your support, so thank you, thank you, thank you!
