CANASTA - 10/4 w/ Imperial Teen @ Abbey Pub + 10/12 @ Bell's, K-Zoo (Reunion Wknd.)

(sent on 2007-09-05)

Hey there,

So Canasta has a couple shows coming up we'd like to let you know about, in case you aren't constantly refreshing our website for new updates. The first is on Thursday, October 4, at the Abbey Pub, where we'll be opening up for Imperial Teen. Yes, that's right, one of the great indie-pop bands of the last 10 years (their debut, Seasick, was listed as SPIN magazine's fourth-best album of 1996), featuring none other than Roddy Bottum of Faith No More, will be sharing a stage with us. Awesome. We've been into this band for a while, so it should be a stellar show.

The second show is the following Friday, October 12, at Bell's Brewery in Kalamazoo, Michigan. We're playing a long set in honor of the 10-year reunion of Kalamazoo College's Class of 1997, an illustrious group to which several band members belong. But the show is also open to the public, so even if you didn't streak the quad with us, you should totally come. Plus, we don't have to tell you that Bell's is one of the best microbrews in the Midwest, and you can get it cheap right where they make it. And make sure to hang out before and after we play while we take the old iPod on a spin through some of your favorite songs of the mid-90s.

Looking forward to rocking with you soon!
