Shows, Radio interview and Podcasts

October 13, 2010 1 comment

Man… it has turned out to be a hell of a couple of months. We’ve got a lot of stuff to catch you up on, so here goes:

Aztalan Turf put us on her pod cast again (which is awesome!) She made it out to the show Friday and gave a shout on the voice print as well. You can check her out at http://www.aztalanturf.com and get the episode at http://www.aztalanturf.com/podcasts/aztalan-turf-016_2010-10-10.m4a

If you missed it we are also on episode 16, so check that out as well.

We are going to be doing a live interview with Infernal Rock Radio out of Milwaukee. It’s a neat setup, for about an hour they’ll play a few of our songs, several tracks that we’ve picked out and mix in some Q & A. It’ll be Oct 28th at 9PM. We’ll have details up about that soon, or you can sign up for the mailing list at http://www.thiraband.com and we’ll send them right to you. You could even email us questions that you might want us to talk about…

We are heading back to Ground Zero 11/5 to play with GATA and for Niobium’s Farwell show, should be an amazing time.

Live, Loud and Local is coming to town! We are officially a part of this awesomeness, so if you would like a chance to see 30-40 bands plus FLAW & Future Leaders of the World over a whole weekend for only $10, give us a shout. It will be an All Ages show at Robert’s in Moundsview. We will have pre-sale tickets available and will be blowing up the stage! Guess what? They will actually be paying the bands! Weird, I know. We’ll have exact details on this right after this weekend so stay tuned.

Oh, by the by… we are writing again! Bring Your Bruises was a huge success at The Garage and Ground Zero, we’ll be rocking it again at The Enigma 10/30 and we’ll have a little Halloween surprise for you guys 🙂

I know that’s a lot, but will break each event down as it comes up, do not fret. See you guys out there.

Shows, shows, shows and …

Shows, shows, shows and …

New material!  We weren’t kidding.  Oh man!  3 new shows!!!  Plus we’ll be back at the Garage in 3 weeks!!!  So much goings ons… just writing and booking, writing and booking, and…. well you get the idea.

Here is the schedule:

9/25     The Garage                              Burnsville          All Ages           $6/$8

10/8     GROUND ZERO                        Minneapolis      18+                  $6/$8

10/30   The Enigma Skateshop           Shakopee         All Ages           $5

11/5     GROUND ZERO                        Minneapolis      18+                  $10

Oh! We have presale tickets for the Garage show–get them from us and save $2. Plus it makes us look awesome.

We’re working on 2 new songs and things are going swimmingly.  We’ll likely be able to premier them in October!  But we’ll keep you posted.  Even so, we’re leaner, meaner and ready to melt your face!  It’s refreshing to re work the set in this format.  It’s tight, and it opens a few things up for movement on stage.  But we still need a 2nd guitarist, so you know… Beuller?

Thanks again guys and see you out there.  Teaser: street team mission coming soon!! Always a fun warm up: send our thira.bandcamp.com link to all your friends.

And then there were 4

Clover has left Thira. We don’t need to get in the why, or even the how. No, he did not punch us in the junk and run out laughing. Though we would have had to respect him for that if he did 🙂

What is important is the “What is next?”  3 important things:

1. We are still playing shows

2. We are still booking shows

3. We are now looking for another guitarist

What do we ask of you guys? Nothing but to keep with us as we keep moving forward. And if you or anyone you know digs what we do and wants to join us as a guitarist, drop us a line at thira@thiraband.com

Oh, you can always come out to the Garage 9/25. We have discounted presale tickets and would love to get you a couple.

Do not fret, do not worry. We’re not going anywhere but up.

August update

August 8, 2010 Leave a comment

What a fantastic month July was.  3 shows, we finally got the EP, we got the shirts in time for the garage.  I mean, yeah  our elevator was broken for the Rock show and we had to haul all our stuff down 3 flights and then we played in a tornado for the Station 4 show… but other than that it was awesome.

We’d like to take a minute to thank everyone again for coming out and showing us support.  A special shout out to Brandie for doing a fantastic job at the merch booth.  She moved twice as much stuff as we would have without her.  We really appreciate it.

We’re #2 on Reverbnation for Minneapolis Metal!  Man it feels good to say that.  Ok. Now on to #1!  Go.

One more thing: we are working on new material! So stick around boys and girls!

Emergency blog go! Full power on now!

#1. No, we did not disappear

#2. We apologize for possibly making you think that we disappeared

#3. If this is your first time here and you’ve never heard of us before today, ignore the above and thank you for coming.  If this is your first time here and you have heard of us… we’ll here is our blog.  We try to put good reads here.  You check back every so often and we’ll do our best to make it worth your while.

Perhaps you have a hard copy of our EP. Fantastics.  No?  please go here: thira.bandcamp.com and download it. If you do have a hardcopy, you can still download and read fun things and liner notes and lyrics and album art.  You can get it for free by entering $0 in the money box.  We are very much ok with this. We love to give this to people.  However, this is a very convenient way to help our cause (with $$) if you’re so inclined. And live in a different city/state/timezone/hemisphere/galaxy… (maybe 3 jokes were enough).  An even better way to help us you ask?  I shall tell you….  Come to our shows.  They’re listed here:  www.thirband.com We’d love it.  Seriously.  We’ll prove it to you…. But you have to come first.

Which brings me to:

#4.  We have ordered shirts.  We will have merch very soon. In fact, we’ll have it in time for our next show.  If you come see us, you can have an EP for $0 and buy a shirt for a number of dollars TBD soon.

#5. Show blogs are coming very soon.  1st show. 2nd show. Quite the events. Not just at the venue, starting long before.  Not now, but soon you will have them.

Well, now you have a reason to check back.  Until then…

Emergency blog stop! All power off!!
