If anyone is interesting in grabbing one of the remaining copies of Fits & Cycles, go to www.littleblackcloud.com and snatch one up before they've disappeared. We've got a limited number of Dialectic and Whole Ghosts as well if anyone's interested.

As always, you buy either "Fits & Cycles" or Ringfinger's "Decimal" from Little Black Cloud Records here or from your favorite online mp3 boutique. Word.

Thought I'd share the band description from the MACRoCk memorial souvenir limited collector's program. I'm not really sure where this Death Cab thing comes from, but as Dan said, they get to make music for a living, so it's not so bad. People are really struggling for unusually flowery language in reviews and band descriptions these days, but I like rockets, pinatas, birthday parties, and Stephen Hawking. Anyway, all in all a pretty favorable write-up.

Saturday we woke up and headed to Harrisonburg. There, Landis spoke on a panel about independent publishing. He can be seen above making a completely natural and unintentional talking face during said panel. After Dan took this photograph, he showed it to Elise, John, and Jay who attempted unsuccessfully to stifle laughter for the next 30 minutes. We then headed over to the Artful Dodger and caught a lively set from our friends the Invisible Hand, followed by Whatever Brains (who John recognized from the Jackpot in Raleigh), followed by a band that Jon Bray said sounded like 2002. The Iron City Lager was flowing and good times were had by all. Finally, we headed over to Court Square Theater, loaded in, and played a disappointingly low-energy set for a disappointingly low-energy crowd. We were appropriately and slighly harshly taken to task here by a grumpy blogger. To you, sir, we apologize and hope that you can find it in your heart to give us another chance. We loaded out, sold a couple of t-shirts, and hit the highway so as not to have to look this gentleman in the face. More photos of the happy times during the day can be found here. Like a phoenix, we will rise from the ashes of MACRoCk 2009 and set stages across this great land on fire with our gamboge Decemberists-go-garage wings.

Thank you to everyone that came out to the Philadelphia, Richmond, and Charlottesville shows this weekend. Thanks to the people that gave us a bed. Thanks to the kid at Laundromat that reminded me of the brotherhood of the keg by hanging out after getting his
Natural Lite Keystone Light to pump the keg for me. Thanks to Bobby for cutting us a break on our tabs at The Czar. Sorry to the muscle-neck guy that I accidentally threw down a beer gauntlet in front of. Sorry to unnamed guy in other band we played with who got his pectoral grabbed by our drunken friend (actually not sorry about that). Thanks to In the Year of the Pig, Medications, St. God's Hospital, Brian Bonz, Ports of Call, Caninos, and of course Fiends (now defunct). Sorry to the waitress at Cracker Barrel for Jay's language. Fuck you to rain, gimmicks, and traffic on turnpikes.
We have two big big big "happenings" coming up this weekend. One is our Album Release Show (poster up top) which is going down Friday, April 3 at none other than Sound of Music (321 West Broad Street) in Richmond. For those just tuning in, that's where we recorded the majority of the album, and John Morand will be on hand to make us sound good, or maybe even great. Our album "Fits & Cycles" will be available on hand-numbered and limited CD-R, plus it's our first show with the marvelous Ringfinger (aka Tracy, our spiritual leader/label co-founder/#1 fan/hero). Music starts at 10pm SHARP with Tracy, then we'll commence.
Second, and I'm fucking sorry for how many words I'm using in this post, is MACRoCk 2009 in scenic Harrisonburg, VA on Saturday. It is, I believe, our first festival, and being that several of the members of Cinemasophia grew up going to MACRoCk, it kind of makes me want to start singing "Circle of Life". We play at Court Square Theatre (61 Graham Street) at 7:40pm.
Come say hello, buy a CD-R, bang your head and/or slow dance.

UPDATE: In truth, I really just wanted to post this image, and tried to relate it the band in some way, but Dan let me know it was bit too much of a stretch. I apologize for any confusion.
