    • Looking forward to this one! The last time I played Charleston, the bass player threw all of his possessions in the ocean. Mind you, this was with a different band, but it'll probably still get a bit weird.

    • Great show btw.  I had no idea KK & BBQ were so popular.  The people seemed to go mad for them.

    • HUH?!!! WHA?!!!!  Well , you guys have a good time. Tell Craig , Chicago is'nt far away. He knows that. He also knows this onetime center of the Garage Universe can't support a good festival , or more than a very random appearance by an actual classic Garage Band , like ? and The Mysterians , who drew about 40 people the last two shows where there was a cover charge.

      Seven inch records clean infinitely faster than the LPs that we’ve done at the two Brooklyn Bowl Wash-A-Thons but there are a lot of them! Bring along some rolls of paper towels and a pair of plastic gloves and let's give the wax a rubdown! Norton's seven inchers got soaked by Sandy and all the boss picture sleeves are now history. Help us dip n' dry these sevens back into action- come on over and don't forget the elbow grease! Plenty of wild 45s will be spun all night long!

    • That sounds awesome - shoot me a message with some open dates that are good for you after the New Year and we'll put something together!

    • Greg: Let's work on a show trade soon!! We'd love to have you down in Philly.

    • November 26, 2012 7:45 PM CST
    • For sure! Otto's is great - we just set a date with them ourselves after the new year. has a great venue list (although some have unfortunately closed down).

      Our favorites have been Trash Bar, The Gutter, and Don Pedro but a lot of the venues in Brooklyn are good for garage stuff. Legion, Public Assembly, The Rock Shop, The Bell House, etc.

      If you guys are ever looking to play up here, let me know. We are booking tons of shows and we'd love to have you up!

    • November 26, 2012 7:42 PM CST
    • We... The Scovilles, that is... are hoping to head to NYC early in the New Year. We have some tentative dates at Otto's we're looking at. If you know anywhere else that's garage-friendly, we're definitely open to suggestion.

    • thanks a lot,we're doing an exchange with a band from Quebec and we are flying to Montreal  April 26th (we're staying for 10 days only)  They will  get us gigs  at the weekends. So we  were looking for gigs in NYC and New Jersey  during the week April 29th May 2nd.

      We can play for about an hour and a half

      but we would need a local band to play with us as we're only bringing guitars, snare and cymbals

      (We can return them the favor if they want to play in France and organize a few gigs for them around Toulouse and in the South west of France and find them a few gigs in other parts of France too)


      It would be a dream for us to play in the US

      thanks for your help

      I book for a venue in new jersey and would love to have you guys play when you are here.  let me know the details.  I have two venues who could host.
