(clever roof pun here)

Thanks to everyone that came to our rooftop party this saturday. Special thanks to rick silver and silver catering who entertained our stomachs and expanded our minds with his lavish cullinary concoctions. Additional thanks to my phone for letting me post this from the 90 degree, broken down F train. After god bluffed once or twice with some rain and deadly lightening, we picked up our instruments to sernade the guests. Hanging on for life, we ripped through some classics, including ny ny, robotic love, several pbrs, and the chocolate mousse. The night culminated with our good friend maldo getting invited to take a seat by some hipsters that were sharing the roof with us. The chair had only 3 legs, and he tumbled into a pool of rain water, spilled sangria, and utter humiliation. Hilarity ensued.

Apt 3a: 1, TCL: 0

We've taken a break from sacrificing small dogs to squeeze a little practice time in. Notice the headpones we're sporting. Our neighbors above have been such whiney little girls that we've been reduced to using electric drums and an intricate headphone system. And they still complain! The jokes on them. They're embitterred dorks... we're in an awesome fuckin rock band. Come to our show tonite.

Crab People (taste like crab, talk like people)

While crustaceans across the country were selfishly out celebrating the official start to the summer season, our legions of supporters were taking care of business on the, well, business end of things. The above flier has been distributed in the thousands throughout the area as a kind reminder that friday is your only chance to pick up a complimentary copy of our new ep, and at the same time, watch us shred through an epic set of fan favorites at arlenes grocery in the LES. Be there.

TCL <3 's Philly

This past Monday, on the eve of our EP release, Tim traveled to our old stomping grounds to promote The White Balloon. Thankfully, through all the excitement, our PALM Centro was in the capable hands of our resident Phone-tographer, Hailey. First stop was in the heart of our old neighborhood Manayunk, and the studio of Philly's most dedicated and supportive radio station Skin Radio. For those of you who missed the live broadcast, Tim was interviewed by our good friend Al and performed a few solo selections from The White Balloon.

Later that night it was off to one of Philly's most diverse and respected venues World Cafe Live, home to 88.5 WXPN radio, for an encore performance. The built-in crowd at WCL was digging the tunes and Tim stuck around for some meet-and-greet action. All in all it was a successful trip to the town that birthed us and an inspired debut for The White Balloon.
Stay tuned for more info on Philly show dates coming up this summer.

Whatchoo talking about Willis , Bruce?

A lot's been going on here in the danger room recently. Josh grew a mohawk. Mark found new meaning in life, in a burrito. Mike joined sean and mark in the old heads club (we're now 22). And, tim wrote 30 to 40 more songs. More imortantly, we're ferociously preparing for our forthcoming release of the white balloon ep. Anyone who is anyone will be at Arlene's Grocery at 9pm on may 30th to celebrate. Perhaps you'll hear a new song or two. Or, perhaps you'll be reminded of our trainwreck of a performance there just 1 year ago. You won't know if you don't show

Fan Profile of the Week: Ricky Silver

who is he? an aspiring scientist with a taste for good food and music

how did he discover tcl? Tim and ricky shared the ice together on the 'Little Flyers' hockey team back in 2006.

Where is he now? On a bus with us in Indiana ('Lincolns boyhood home'). He resides, however, across the east river from us in a little place called Manhattan

if he were a sex and the city character? The hot one, obviously

favorite color? Without asking him, we'd have to assume perriwinkle or some other gender ambiguous color that leans towards the feminine side

why do we let him hang out with us? Because he ups our street cred with his killer good looks, plus the video footage that he takes at our shows will one day make for an eerie look into the world of tcl

what you can expect from him now: a firm handshake, and if you're lucky, delicious eats at one of his exclusive rooftop soirees. As for the lady situation, sorry girls, he's taken

in the future? Keep an eye out for him and tim's side project, 'the planet earths', dropping this fall

aliases: 'rick', 'richard'
