Got a gig coming up? A CD coming out? A new bass player who looks like Jesus and smells like a field of posies? If you're selling or promoting something, post it here.

Arkoffs, Shabelles, The Congregation: 10/1, Crystal Corner

Postby minicat » Tue Sep 06, 2011 2:15 pm

Just wanted to give an early heads up on this show. Schabow Industries (TM) has arranged for Chicago's up-and-coming soul revue, The Congregation, to make their first trip to Madison. In the recent past, they were chosen as one of the "11 Bands to Watch in 2011" by Chicago Tribune; were a top 4 finalist in Metromix's Rock 'n' Vote competition; played Taste of Chicago and Sheffield Garden Walk in Chicago and Musikfest in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. They released their debut EP, Not for Sleepin', last December.

Holding down the middle spot will be Madison power poppers The Shabelles.

Opening the night at around 9:30-9:45 ish will be long-running-from-TEH MAN garbage rock terror squad The Arkoffs.

Rumor has it I will do some sitting in on trash sax with the opening garbage-rock band.

The Facebook event has been created..so therefore it is official. The show is happening. Also 89.9 WORT is sponsoring the event and will be giving away tickets on the air.

I think that's it for now...PEACE OUT!!!

This is, of course, why I never feel safe when with the Arkoffs. (Vaguely threatening, ambiguous statements paired with adorable images of ginger animals.)

One thing I forgot to mention was that DAN HOOPER, former Madision guitarist from the John Ashcroft Fan Club, Mr. Pants and Ass Blown Off, is the lead guitarist in The Congregation. His Chicago soul band is something truly spectacular.

Hey Madisonians,

I'm powerfully excited for my upcoming triumphant return to my old home town, and to show off my new band, The Congregation. Its been a long time since the days of Mr.Pants and The John Ashcroft Fan Club, but playing in Madison October 1st with the Shabelles and the Arkoffs is gonna feel just like old times.

-Dan
