Hey, fellow New Yorkers and neighbors:

Save the date! Friday, July 20th, 9 PM, AMERICANS UK will be taking over the Hot Rocks Party @ the Delancey Lounge on the Lower East Side. $5 admission! Two for one wells until 8:30 and free PBR at midnight! Other bands include THE ART OF SHOOTING, and GOLD STREETS. DJ's will be spinning '50's and '60's twist-and-rock-o-rama between sets.

Here is live footage of us so you can see just how much we don't suck: http://youtube.com/watch?v=K0HW-vzN4_4

Also, if you would like a free copy of our EP to check out, please PM me your e-mail and I'll gladly send you some MP3s.

I'll be updating this post further as we near the date, and bumping it incessantly, I'm sure.

Anyhow, I may be in tomorrow night to see Ulrich Schnauss at the seaport, so if I am there odds are I can show up to your gig as well.

Awesome. Drinks look pretty cheap and I'm taking public transportation in. Let's get completely obliterated.

I just hope with traffic and us getting to GREG's first (to park the car) and then taking public transportation into the city that we make the 9pm showtime - JEF UK - if we're not there you should throw a rocker hissy fit to prolong your set!!! =)

I'll surreptitiously rip out nose hairs so as to flush my cheeks and produce real tears.

It's possible to park on the street on the Lower East Side, too. I think meters stop after 7 PM. You could mapquest directly to the club, if you are so inclined. But then you have to deal with your car being in lower Manhattan after the show is over.

Thanks so much for coming out guys. I had a blast! Alex and I lost Flonk at some point and continued on. I crashed on the N train and woke up coming back from Coney Island. Way too much fun was had on my part. I was still recovering yesterday. :cool:

Rock!

Great time Friday night.
I'll echo everyone's sentiments about the rockingness of the Americans UK.
Everyone on the Board should go on the band's Myspace page and listen to their music or bug Jef to send you mp3's, or whatever.
Sounds like the party went on and on after I left, which is what I deserve.
Great seeing everyone, as usual, and meeting a couple new people too.

Much later on in the night my girl and I went to Moaz in Union Sq (it's one of our favotire falafel places from Amsterdam that has opened a branch in NYC), and we saw all the Potter weirdos...It's not often that a comic dork can feel cooler than another group, but I think I got that feeling that night :)

MIKE D
07-23-2007, 10:06 AM
It's funny, every drinkup I can measure my face-time with Goddard in minute sized increments. By 2010, we might even talk a full half hour. But he's pretty cool to hang out with nevertheless. Also, I finally got to talk to David for more than five minutes, and that was really cool as well. It was a good time.

Flonk, Alex and THWIP!- Expect an update soon. Operation:New Jersey? should commence shortly.
