Canasta @ Abbey Pub 8/30 + New Photos

(sent on 2006-08-08)

Howdy there,

Hope you're all coping with these grueling "dog days" of summer. As for us, we're drinking lots of water and watching Talledega Nights as many times in a row as we can before the ushers kick us out. We're also gearing up for a pretty cool show at the end of the month. On Wednesday, August 30, Canasta will be opening for melancholy UK indie-pop band The Clientele (Merge) and Elephant 6 pop supergroup Great Lakes. It's our first time ever at the Abbey Pub, so come on out and celebrate the end of the season.

But wait, there's more...

  • We've added a few more photo galleries to the Images section on our website, including our outdoor performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in June.
  • A dance troupe in Seattle recently performed a duet to "Shadowcat," which is kind of awesome, actually. You can see the video here:
  • Now that We Were Set Up is available on websites like Amazon, eMusic, Insound, and CDBaby, maybe you'd like to add a review or two to let everyone know how much you love Canasta. We'll even make it easy for you:

Thanks, and we'll see you soon!
