Broadside Invades The Folk Show with Gene Shay

On Sunday, 19 November, the whole five-fifths <!> of Broadside Electric will perform live in the XPN studios and be interviewed by Gene Shay. "If memory serves me correctly," this is, hey, checkitout, this is the first time all of the current lineup has performed at XPN. <!!>

At press time, we're not 100% sure what time this will be, so you know the drill. Tune in to 88.5 FM or listen online from 4-8pm.

"And, but also" - please don't hesitate to call in and request songs from "With Teeth" during the broadcast. It's a fact: we support any and all grass-roots initiatives in the "radio request department." Call any radio station. Call any vegetable if you want, but do call the radio station first. WXPN's request line is +1 (215) 573-9976. (Kids, get your parents permission before you dial.)

T-Shirt Design Contest Winnahs

Hey, thanks so much to everyone who participated in our super-big-deal T-Shirt contest. So many entries, so little time, and such variety. We appreciate your efforts, gosh do we ever.

In response to some recent e-mail concerns over the vote, though it's never any small task to choose a favorite, we at Broadside Electric want to let you know that at no time did we even consider using those doomed-from-the-start holepunch butterfly ballot thingies. That's right, no manual recounts in this election, no way no how.

(You see, friends, we're all about "no muss, no fuss" around here.)

'kay ... the winners:

  • First Place: Paul Butler
  • Second Place: Nick Cassway
  • Third Place: ... Nick Cassway!

We have ordered shirts incorporating Paul's design. As promised, they'll be unveiled at the 10th anniversary concert for your purchasing and wearing pleasure. As for Nick, well, we plan to use his most excellent designs for other nefarious purposes. Bwa-haa indeed. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Paul has chosen that Broadside perform a song of his choosing at the anniversary show. Though we can't tell you what song he chose, rest assured it is shaping up to be ... well ... it's very different. (Is there ever any other way to be?)

Say, here's something different for the next election ... let's issue all registered voters Scratch-n-Win Election Ballots!

"Lessee, <scratch> Gore <scrrratch> A Large Diet Soda <scratchity-scratch> Bush <scritch-scratch> Nader <scrrrrratch, pause> aww, no, Large Diet Soda won again. <whines> I don't wanna carbonated beverage for president!"

It could work. Right?

Movie Movie

Recently, when no-one was looking, Broadside contributed music for a new documentary about British Major General Edward Braddock and his failed attempt at seizing Fort Duquesne. Hmm, mortal combat and a body count. Oh yeah, just the sort of thing we're up for! :-D
