Another Update?!?

Tour plans are under way for everybody for Summer 2011. Once those get finalized, dates will be posted on the ‘Shows’ page, which I think will be renamed to ‘Tour’ (it’s too hard to keep all the shows updated).

Everybody has been playing lots of shows, working on lots of music. The Waldos have shared the first 5 tracks from what I understand will eventually be an LP (they have more new songs to record, etc etc). Check out what they have so far here. They’ve been receiving some much deserved attention for it, and for their rock-solid live sets. Here’s a video from Brass Cankles (Mike Cunnane from Huak, Rattlesnakes, Sunset Hearts):

Butcher Boy have recorded a new record, to be released at some point soon. In the meantime, check out a live record that came out of no where, recorded at The Oak & the Ax!

Get Butchered…ALIVE! (RD-02, 2011)

Pamola have started playing again, with a whole batch of new material. We’ll shoot to record it for the long-put-off Pamola LP (I think we’ve decided not to do anything with last summer’s recordings). Here is another video from Brass Cankles, this one of Pamola playing a new song during a set at Poland Street two nights ago.

Lastly, Red Medicine have finally released their EP that was recorded last May. A lot of work has gone into this, especially the packaging. You can either download the record for free or buy a physical copy for 5$.

Ancient Cartography (RD-03, 2011)

I think that’s all for now. There was a lot of media in this post.

News, blah blah blah

Haven’t updated in a long time, eh?

No worries- no one lost the mission.

Poland Street, the residence of Butcher Boy, half of The Waldos, and most of Pamola, has been putting on shows several times a month for a while now, with a diverse array of touring and local acts. The environment is fun, warm, and friendly. A few upcoming shows have been posted in the shows section, so drop by if you can, and be respectful.

Rough Draft has a new family member: The Waldos. These guys are nuts. Billy from Pamola and Mark from Butcher Boy augment the sick, jazzy, breadwinnery work of Justin Glover and Elliot McInnis. Their old two-piece demo has been linked on their band page. The four-piece has recently recorded a five song EP that is still being worked on and may see release sometime in the future. The rough mixes for it are unbelievable. We are beyond stoked to be able to count The Waldos as a member of our family.

Work on Pamola’s EP continues on its slow, lazy pace. I’m making no promises about when this will finally be done. Hopefully before summer.

Red Medicine’s new EP, complete with bass and vocals, is more or less done, with artwork done by Thor. Once we figure out packaging, and get the stuff all assembled, we’ll post photos, information for anyone interested in buying, and a link to download the music for free as well.

Check out the shows coming up at Poland Street and The Castle in Mexico, ME.
