CANASTA - "Mic. Song" Music Video(!) + Friday, 4/6 @ Beat Kitchen

(sent on 2007-03-23)

Ahoy there mateys,

March, as they say, is about to go out like a lamb, so what better way to enjoy the cute and fluffy spring days ahead than to come see your favorite indie-pop sextet? Canasta will be at the Beat Kitchen on Friday, April 6, along with roots-rockers The Honeydogs and off-kilter piano wizard Mark Mallman (seriously, we played with this dude in Pittsburgh once, and he's kind of insane). As you may have heard, we have two new musicians in the band now -- guitarist Jeremy Beckford and pianist Charlie Williams -- and since this will be the first time that both will be on stage together, it should be an especially exciting show.

In other news, we made a video. That's right. On Super Bowl Sunday last month, we spent the entire day not watching the game (which, in retrospect, was just as well) but filming "Microphone Song" with director Alex Mechlin. And we have to say, we think it turned out pretty well. Tune into our YouTube channel to watch the whole thing for free, and try not to get too freaked out by the clones. We're still having nightmares ourselves. :)

See you soon!
