Post #233: Me and My Arrow

***Local band playing at Cause Spirits and Soundbar tonight
with Chris Bathgate opening***

According to my itunes, it was almost one year ago, November 23rd, 2010 to be exact, that I picked up a 4 song EP at Cheapo Records over in St. Paul.  It was on one of their listening boards, where they have CD players mounted to the wall with recently released albums.  A great way to test drive some new music.  As always, I went to the listening board I always visit first.  The one labeled "Local" in big bold letters.

This is how I came across Me and My Arrow.

After listening to the beginning of each song, I added it to my stack, paid my money, and downloaded it to my computer not long after getting home.

Unfortunately, it took the fact that they are playing with Chris Bathgate this evening, for me to pull it out and give it my first official listen.  The side affect of being addicted to music.  (And if you haven't had a chance to hear Chris Bathgate, check out my post HERE from May).


The EP I purchased just so happens to be their most recent, entitled EP 3, which is where you will find "L.A. Air".

If the above video is any indication of what I will witness tonight, I am beyond excited to see these guys.

Looking at their website, it doesn't seem they have any shows scheduled beyond this evening, but I'll add them to the calendar once they do.  Aside from EP 3, they also have EP 1 and EP 2, all of which are available on itunes.

I am also looking forward to seeing a show at this venue as this will be my first one there.  Check out their website HERE.

I called earlier today, and they don't sell tickets ahead of time.  Instead, at around 8:30 or so they will start selling wristbands, and seats are first come first served.  Music starts at 10pm, with Chris Bathgate going on at 11:15, and Me and My Arrow taking the stage at 12:30.  This is going to be a late one.

They also mentioned that they are expecting possibly 300 people.

I will be leaving early to make sure I get a good spot for some great video.  I sure hope it works out.
