Hello again, folks! While working towards writing the LP (being recorded in late spring!) John has been playing full-time, full-throttle, gearing up the new songs to be pressed and spun. Mr. Jordan Herrera (of Young Readers) has returned from a long tour and both John and Jordan have been performing select duo sets on certain dates! Keep up with the showdates calendar to stay updated on these performances.
Poolboy, John's surf-punk project with Michael Loveland and Sean Barker (both of Early Beat,) have pressed a set of limited edition cassette tapes of "Soda Kids EP" on Grabbing Clouds out of Chicago, see your record stores in OKC and Chicago for one of your own. Furthermore, Poolboy will also be pressing "Soda Kids EP" on limited pink haze vinyl with Squonk Records out of Norman, OK. Release is slated for February. Come thrash around with us.
The end of this month, John will be opening solo for John Fullbright for the OKMozart Concert Series in Bartlesville, OK, at Frank and Lola's. Unfortunately, this has already sold out, but the day before, John and full string band, including Kyle Reid (of the Chariots,) Jon Knudson (The Northern Lights, Whiskey Myers) and Jordan Herrera (Young Readers), will be performing an entire night of new and old music at Frank and Lola's. Please come enjoy a night of song and drink with these folks!
Until next time, folks. All the love.
John Calvin and family
