CANASTA - Download the SOLD OUT EP for FREE + THUR. 4/28 @ SCHUBAS

(sent on 2005-04-27)

Hi everyone,

Just a reminder that this Thursday, April 28th, Canasta will be playing the International Pop Overthrow festival at Schubas. The show starts at 7:30 and features short sets from eight bands, including Canasta favorites The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir and The Bon Mots. We're scheduled to go on stage at 8:30 PM (just after the SYGC), so come on out, have a drink, and hang out with us!

In other exciting news: we are now officially SOLD OUT of our Find the Time EP. We've sold over 750 copies, which is pretty incredible for a self-released CD. And without any music left to sell, we've decided to give away all five of the album's tracks as FREE MP3s! So download them here: and spread the wealth!

And in a stroke of perfect timing, this past weekend marked the start of our recording sessions for the debut full-length album, which we'll be releasing in late summer! We're working at North Branch Studio, the recording home of The Coctails, Archer Prewitt, Jeff Tweedy, Smog, Kelly Hogan and Nora O'Connor, among others. And behind the boards is our friend Ted Cho (Poi Dog Pondering, Satellite 66), who caught our collective ear with his brilliant recording work on the terrific new record from Palaxy Tracks. It's been really fun so far, and soon enough, we're going to have 13 awesome new tracks for you.

Stay tuned for updates on the forthcoming album and in the meantime, we'll see you at the show!
