Just wanted to leave a quick note....you know, before six months had passed. Things are well on our end. We are booking up some shows and always looking to book more. If you know of a venue who is booking tell them to hit us up, if you are a venue the shoot us a message. We want to play as much possible. Until then, keep your eyes on our website and facebook for show updates. Here's to a busy year!
While you wouldn't know it from our updates, it has been a busy year for Nicotine Poetic. We've played quite a few shows, we have some pretty regular gigs and we have finally started writing again. We wanted to take a minute to say thank you to everyone who has been supportive of us over the last year. It really has been a great time and we look forward to moving strong into 2018.
We have a couple of December shows left and we have started booking the new year. We also are looking at getting into the studio early in 2018 to do a track or two as we being working on our third full length album. We hope to see you out at the shows and we will work on getting new music out to you ASAP in 2018!
that updates are not our strongest suit!
That said, we hope this finds you all doing well. Things in the Nicotine world are starting to get going again. As the weather gets better we are going to be looking to be out doing more and more shows. We are slowly making some contacts and getting that going. I've added a few more shows that are already booked and we plan on adding to the list.
There will be some more videos posted in the very near future. We are slowly getting back on the writing train as well. Give us a minute...we're trying to remind ourselves how to do all this. We took a bit of break but we got tired of that...so you'll be seeing more of our faces in the near future.
The new year has started. We hope it finds you in the best place you can be...and if you need a sad song, you know where to go!
We will see you soon!
We have a handful more shows booked through Sept. We are very much looking forward to Friday Aug 26th as we will be opening up Bruegala: A Festival of Beer at the Normal Corn Crib. We will be doing this show as a full band. It's going to be a great time. We hope to see you out soon!
We do have a couple weekends off in July and I'm going to make it a goal to finally get the merchandise available on our site. I apologize for being such a slacker.
One last thing before I get back to the day job....love each other!
We recently posted a new cover video to our YouTube Channel. Round Here by Counting Crows has been one of those songs we have always loved doing and it we thought it was time to get a current version out there. Hope you enjoy!
We are working hard to get some shows lined up. We will keep you posted. Until then....go get a PBR!
Before we make it there though, we have St. Patrick's day to celebrate on March 17th. We will be doing so with a 7-10pm set at Dr. McKay's in Bloomington. Our good friend Fred Snellen will be playing a bit as well during our set break. We'd love to see you out for both nights!
Keep your eyes open. Next week is going to have a couple of surprises.
We will also have T-shirts and other merchandise available for sale that evening. We will be putting everything up for sale very soon online as well for those of you who don't live nearby or can't make a show.
We will be releasing our newest EP with a local show on March 25th. We will be throwing a release party at Six Strings in downtown Bloomington. I'll get you all the information and details as we tie everything together. We will have a couple of opening acts and a whole bunch of new merchandise.
The EP will feature 7 songs that we recorded with Erik Nelson at Eclipse Studios. The EP is titled "A Note to Samuel". We are dedicating this EP to the memory of our very good friend J.D. Brownfield. If you're curious about the title feel free to ask. Both Jay and I have a number of stories about J.D. Sam is J.D.'s son, and we wanted to be able to express the impact J.D. had on our music to his son. The whole CD is in a way, a note to Samuel.
More to come. Our next show is Feb 27 at DR McKay's Bar & Grille in Bloomington. See you there!
