Rumble! Finals! Fri! Day! 9:30! PM!

So, we did it.

We're in the finals of the 2007 WBCN Rock and Roll Rumble.

Thanks in large part to the gigantic and raucous crowds that have accompanied us to our first two shows, we are now one show away from what would amount to a Miguel Tejada-like shot of vitamin B-12 in the form of cash and prizes, including tons and tons of recording time, which we need, since we're recording an EP and an album. But you already know this. What you don't know is when and where we play, which is why you should stop interrupting and look below:

WBCN Rock and Roll Rumble Finals
Friday, April 20
Harper's Ferry
158 Brighton Avenue
Allston MA 02134
18+, $15
doors 8:30pm, IA plays at 9:30pm

We have the early slot, so we need you to be in late-night form early on in the evening. I can't see why that would be a problem. We will have pre-sales on Wednesday that we'll be selling off for $12 each; there are only going to be 100 discount pre-sales available, so email us right away if you're interested. More pre-sales are available at the Harpers Ferry website (

Not a whole lot of reviews of Saturday's show, but the Herald treated us a little better this week, which is good. The dig didn't come back to try to reanimate the rotting corpse of a story they wrote about us last week, but we can only imagine that something even more nefarious is in the works.

We need you at this show. We're the only band pre-selling tickets to this show, and it's working. Your constant and enthusiastic presence has been integral so far in pushing an underdog act into the finals. One more night and we'll be laughing all the way to the bank...

Let's do it!

The Office episode - preview

I love The Office, and even though I'll be playing at the WBCN Rumble at Harper's Ferry on Thursday night when it returns from its 6-week hiatus, I'll still be at home, on my house, in my sweatpants, watching it in spirit. Here is what will happen:

Roy is going to start beating Jim up real bad and then Dwight is going to come to Jim’s defense and hit Roy with a stapler, knocking Roy out. The whole office is going to think Roy is dead, and Michael is going to decide that they need to hide Roy’s body and pretend nothing ever happened. Stanley and Ryan are going to start digging a shallow grave for Roy and Pam is going to completely freak out, at which point Karen is going to convince Michael that Pam, too, needs to die, in order to keep the secret. This point will be unbeknownst to Jim, who will be hopped up on painkillers while Andy, newly returned from anger management counseling, is stitching him up in the conference room, because if Jim were to go to the hospital it would raise suspicion about the deaths of Pam and Roy. Bob Vance, also, will die, for reasons unrelated to the circumstances above. How will Michael keep the plans for Pam’s murder away from Jim, and how will anyone stop Creed from detonating his doomsday device? Hilariously, that’s how! This week on The Office!
