Just wanted to wish y’all a happy holiday season and merry christmas.  Finn Riggins will be recording some songs next week for a micro release this spring, more details coming soon. We’re also playing two shows to wrap up 2011:

Friday, December 30th at Neurolux here in Boise with our reunited friends IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOUNTAIN (so pumped for this!!) and newer locals FOUNTAINS. more details for this show HERE — this show will be hotttt.

Then we’ll be ringing in the New Year up in Hailey with the wild wild FRESSHIES crew. Get your tickets in advance at Fresshies in downtown Hailey or contact us via the contact page to reserve your spot — very limited space!

Here’s one of our new songs — BENCHWARMERS — written and recorded for a collaboration with animator Jason Sievers and modern dance troupe Trey McIntyre Project.

Finn Riggins – BENCHWARMERS by Finn Riggins

Lots of exciting things in the works for 2012!    Especially in March when we’ll be heading back to SXSW in Austin with a bunch of other Boise bands (Built To Spill, Youth Lagoon, Le Fleur, Brett Netson Band, Hillfolk Noir, TEENS and more) as well as helping to host a big festival here in Boise.  If you’re not already familiar with TREEFORT MUSIC FEST, we highly recommend you get in the loop because it’s shaping up to be 4 incredible days of music right here in the capitol city of Idaho.
