This coming Friday, the killigans will grace the stage with their number 1 alltime favorite fun band friends THE VANDON ARMS. Fresh off a 2 year hiatus, the boys from the Vandon Arms are itching to get back on the scene. If you follow the folk punk genre at all, these guys need no introduction. If you just like to dabble, then you need to come check them out..its virtually impossible not to love this band and their superb songwriting skills. Show is at Harrahs Live and Loud bar inside Harrahs Casino in Council Bluffs/Omaha. Right at the intersection of I29 and I80.
Then, sunday night, its big Bens birthday bash at Duffys Tavern in Lincoln. Joining the killigans will be Lincolns own Ideal Cleaners, and High Art featuring the very talented mr. Darren Keen. This show most likely starts at 8pm.
Then, Thursday Sept 28th we will be BACK in Lincoln at the Zoo bar for the annual Lincoln Calling Festival. I think this is like our 5th year doing this..its almost always been awesome, and this year we are lucky enough to have the Filter Kings on the same night. Show at 9pm.
October 8th, Friday, we will be doing an all ages show at Knickerbockers with local youngsters Gorilla Warfare, and Learning to Fall. Both great group of guys, and gal, and I think this is a costume party..so please show up wearing your sweetest karate outfit, or deputy dog costume. 6pm show, all ages!
In other news, we are starting to think about doing some new music…This is a very busy time of year for us..2 of us just started new jobs, one is running for county commisioner and doing law school, the other is doing freelance work and teaching college,the last 2 are busy as usual teaching our youth and getting yelled at by rich customers, and we all work our asses off trying to make it in this world..trying to support our familes, keep from going insane and still try to get it all out in the music. Its tough sometimes, but we are trying. You can choose where you get your music. We’d like to thank all of you for choosing to get some of it here. When you stop caring to listen, we will stop playing. Until then, fight the good fight!
