HOLD UP, DIDN'T YOU JUST POST A BBU TRACK: Yes we did. But now that Broken Bells' new album is out, we decided it was time to drop this alternate version. And while we're on the topic, if you don't have that new BBU mixtape yet, do yourself a favor and go get it.
EXTRAS: This weekend (March 12-14) we're filming a video for a new track from our forthcoming 7" with Kid Static and we need extras for some of the shots. If you're in or around Chicago and want to participate, email hoodinternetvideo at gmail dt com for details.
DOUBLE HEADER: After we finish up the video shoot on Saturday, we're headed over to Hideout to perform at their annual "Sending the Four-star City to the Lone Star State" SXSW sendoff show. THEN, it's over to Lincoln Hall for the 2010 edition of CLAYCHELLA. Click the flyer for more info.
