The June 25th show at the Bug Jar has unfortunately been cancelled – the Bug Jar is closed for the next couple of weeks due to a shooting outside its doors.  Thankfully, it will reopen, so hopefully I’ll be able to schedule something soon.

WORM QUARTET MINI-UPDATE AND BLATANT PLUG – 06/09/2012

Hi, dammit! Just a quicky to remind you guys about:

NEW WORM QUARTET ALBUM KICKSTARTER ENDS IN MERE DAYS NEWS!
For those of you who haven’t been paying attention, the Kickstarter for the new Worm Quartet album “Songs of the Maniacs” is in its final days! I’m doing this in lieu of preorders this time, so if you want to get the new album now (as well as bonus discs, DVDs, handmade keychains, or my entire discography on a bitchin’ handmade USB flash drive embedded in an Atari 2600 cartridge casing, among other things,) this is how you get it!

My initial goal and my first stretch goal have both been reached – I’m blown away by this! Thanks so much for all the support! The new goal is $4400 for a moderately-massive studio upgrade, and we’re still quite a ways shy of it but I’m hoping we’ll get there!

You can check out my Kickstarter – and the various videos I’ve made to promote it, which people seem to be enjoying the crap out of – at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1169494511/worm-quartet-songs-of-the-maniacs-album

WORM QUARTET UPDATE AND BLATANT PLUG – 05/19/2012

Okay, after entirely too much silence and entirely too many updates without much going on, here’s the big’un, folks!

First off:

NEW WORM QUARTET ALBUM KICKSTARTER NEWS
That’s right, dammit!  The new album will be out in June, and it looks like I’m actually going to be able to meet this date, unlike all the other dates I’ve heartily promised and then completely failed to meet!

This time out, in lieu of the typical preorders I tend to do for these things, I’m doing what the cool kids do and doing a Kickstarter! Rewards for contributors include copies of the new CD, bonus discs, bonus DVDs, and a bitchin’ handmade USB flash drive embedded in an Atari 2600 cartridge casing, loaded with the entire Worm Quartet discography!

I hit my initial goal of $1300 within twenty-four hours of my Kickstarter going live because you guys are awesome. I’ve announced a stretch goal of $2600 to make some enhancements (well, okay, ONE enhancement) to my live show, and there’s still plenty of prizes to be had!

You can check out my Kickstarter (and the video I made for it, which took entirely too much time) at http://kck.st/L3RPsj

And as long as you’re clicking links…

WORM QUARTET WEBSITE REDESIGN NEWS
I recently launched the brand-spankin’-new wormquartet.com! The new website is designed by Devo Spice, and now looks a hell of a lot less like it was made in 1994. FRAME-FREE, people.  Has tour dates, history, an updated store, a music player, and more! Check it: http://www.wormquartet.com
WORM QUARTET ACTUALLY HAS MULTIPLE SHOWS SCHEDULED NEWS
Ohhhh man, I get to share a stage with Dr. Demento, and then I get to share a stage with the Flashing Astonishers!  It’s 2004 all over again, only with more gray hairs!

NEW COLLABORATION WITH DEVO SPICE NEWS
Recently, Scooter Picnic released a song of mistaken identity, inspired by an offhand comment made by Devo Spice, entitled “Kyle are you Ian?”  Uponhearing this catchy, goofy little bit of glee, I immediately contacted Devo Spice and suggested that – while I’m normally vehemently opposed to doing parodies – we should totally do a take-off of this song, since to a large degree we really do have the same lives.

The result (which Dr. Demento has already played, yaaaay!) was completed within mere days, and can be heard at http://thefump.com/fump.php?id=1540

( The original Scooter Picnic tune is at http://thefump.com/fump.php?id=1528 )

NEW CIRQUE DU SO WHAT ALBUM NEWS
Oh, right. I haven’t sent one of these things out in a longass time, and thus pretty much COMPLETELY neglected to mention that my sketch comedy project with Devo Spice, Luke Ski, and Chris Mezzolesta now has a THIRD friggin’ CD out, loaded with profanity, inside jokes, and sketches that go entirely too long with no real payoff! Cirque du So What’s latest offering, ”Stupid Cowboy Thing, Vol. 2 – Additional Squid” can be ordered from http://thefump.com/store_release.php?id=98

My favorite track from the new album, the brilliant Luke-Ski-penned ”Let’s Do Improv,” is available for free on The FuMP:  http://thefump.com/fump.php?id=1525

As is another teaser track, “How to Speak Shoebox” at http://thefump.com/fump.php?id=1538

ODOR NEWS
A funded Kickstarter campaign within 24 hours. A new album on the horizon.  Upcoming shows with Dr. Demento and the Flashing Astonishers. Yeah. I  smell like gratitude, excitement, and anticipation.

…Which it turns out smells a lot like Downy and onions, because I’ve spent most of the morning doing laundry and I just ate a salad.

That enough for you? Feel free to drop me a note, comment on my Kickstarter, follow me on Facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/wormquartet ) and Twitter ( @WormQuartet ) or otherwise interact with me if you’re not terrified of long-haired software engineers who sing about vasectomies, soap, love, and robots.

Thank you for continuing to acknowledge my existence! You guys remain disturbingly awesome.

De-swallowing the antitoaster of semi-infinite non-floppiness,
