Hey guys! Happy February. It’s a beautiful, crisp, sunny day here in Brooklyn, and with it comes some big news….
For those of you who didn’t see the announcement on our Facebook page last week, I announced that my husband and I are expecting our first child! YAY! It’s quite a busy and exciting time for us, and I’d like to extend my thank-yous to all of the well-wishers.
So, with that, CTA is in the midst of some big changes ourselves. As a result of my pregnancy, I will not be able to join Heather and Christina at the kit past April, and will need to take a minimum of six months off. They will keep gigging with a stand-in drummer (we will announce who it is in a future blog post!), and I have every intention of being back behind the drums before the end of the year, if everything goes to plan.
What does all of this mean? Well, it means that there are only a handul of shows until further notice where you can see the whole lineup, and that’s we’re covering today. Details are still rolling in on a couple of shows, but the dates are pretty much locked in. Check it:
Saturday, February 6 (THIS SATURDAY!!!): The Grand Victory, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. With Juliannarchist, The Dandy Lions, and Dalton Deschain and the Traveling Show. All ages matinee show, $10 to get in. Doors 3pm.
Thursday, February 25: Queens College environmental benefit show. Free admission and all ages. We go on at 8:30pm. Exact location TBA.
Friday, March 11: Manhattan or Brooklyn, details TBA
Saturday, March 26: Staten Island, details TBA
Sunday, April 17: Black Bear Bar, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. With Samantha, other acts TBA. 21+, $8 in adv/$10 at the door. Doors at 6pm
For me, this is the first time un my entire career I am taking an involuntary leave. It’s exciting and scary. If you have been looking to catch a show for awhile, these are the shows, and now is the time.
Lastly, blog posts are going to be a little more intermittent throughout the next year or so, due to schedule and life changes. But don’t fret – they’re not going away!
Till next week (probably, haha),
