While you’re enjoying these hot August nights (you’re welcome for THAT visual!), here’s a couple updates and a quick word from our sponsors….
First up: singles update!
As we posted the other day onour new-fandangled Instagram account, we’ve turned the corner and our long awaited singles club will soon be out in the world! There’s a few final post-production pieces to take care of, and a cross-country freight delivery to account for, but looking like we’ll have our pre-orders out on/around Labour Day, with distros and shopping carts on the site soon to follow.
Thanks for the patience: this one has been a grind, but the end results will be worth the trouble.
Second up: The Ballantynes West Coast Tour!
The Ballantynes are taking their annual summer sojourn stateside, down the west coast, across to Austin and back. Tons of great happenings in-between, including recording sessions and bills with some of our favourite bands.
Keep abreast of all the details right here, and make sure to grab the new swag at the shows!
Last at bat: before signing off and getting back to the Olympic beach volleyball, a shout out to our friends over at NetBet Sports!
It goes without saying that we here at LA-TI-DA have been looking forward to announcing this one ever since their debut at Fall Down/Get Down this past November: please join us in welcoming The Flintettes!
Featuring Mike Flintoff (The Tranzmitors), CC Rose (Vancougar) and Marissa Johnson (Dizzy Eyes).
The three track single is slated for an April release. We’ll hang back on pre-orders until after spring break. Until then, here’s a stream of the lead off track:
All celebratory and welcoming drinks can be sent to the judges table at the SOUL CLAP DANCE OFF where Mike and the ladies will be joining the panel looking to give the $100 CASH PRIZE to a dancer with some serious moves! It doesn’t matter if you’re competing or just shakin’ your butt, Saturday promises to be a night jam packed with fun! Come early for Calvin Love, The Shivas, and The Ballantynes and stay late for the best cuts from Jonathan Toubin and Vinyl Richie.
Also on the horizon for The Flintettes! Catch them taking on Victories and The Isotopes at their 2014 Season Opener Saturday, April 12th at The Electric Owl.
