so much for the notion of Bob slowing down on the live tour scoop. 17 dates in 24 days!!!!! I will be there for at least 4 of them, so I've got that going for me.

Boston Spaceships are Bob, Chris Slusarenko on geetar (former GBV bass), and John Moen on drums (Decemberists, SM & the Jicks). Joining them on tour will be Jason Narducy (kick ass!!) and Tommy Keene (Keene Bros).

Go here to listen to "Go For the Exit" from the forth coming album or go to their mySpace page for that and more.

The debut album Brown Submarine will be released September 9th on GBV, Inc., which will surely be available at Rockathon Records. Speaking of Rockathon, appears that Rich T has included a new little e-mail announcement feature thingy which is now available for your convenience. Simply go here, enter your e-mail, and get all the latest up-to-date info on Rockathon merch. Sweet.
