Vote for us! Best of Atlanta 2009

Vote for us! That's right, it's time once again for Creative Loafing's Best of Atlanta! Voting takes only a few seconds (you only have to vote in 10 categories for your ballot to count). This year, we really think we deserve to win a couple of these, so we're asking you to specifically vote for us in these two categories:

Song with an Atlanta reference: "Sock Man", "Stomp and Stammer", "Murder Kroger", "They Shoot Hipsters, Don't They?", or "Pandamonium" by Attractive Eighties Women
Local YouTube video: "Attractive Eighties Women Need Your Help"

Feel free to vote for us in any other category you want, but come on! We all know that AEW have the best YouTube video this year, and the best local references in our songs!

News update

Hey, everyone. We're playing two shows this week. Try to make it out to one of them. First, we're playing Friday night at the Uptown Loft in Johns Creek. We're the first band and we go on at 9 PM. Then Saturday afternoon, we are playing everyone's favorite Atlanta music festival, Corndogorama. We hit the stage at 12:45 PM.

Upcoming shows
Jun 26 - Johns Creek, GA @ Uptown Loft w/ Green Eyed Stare & EchoesEnd
Jun 27 - Atlanta, GA @ East Atlanta Village - Corndogorama - Buy Tickets
Jul 11 - Athens, GA @ Caledonia w/ Excalibrah & The Buddy System & Allison Weiss
Aug 29 - East Atlanta, GA @ Earl - w/ Tendaberry & The Bearfoot Hookers - Buy Tickets

Kickstarter update
We've broken the $1,500 mark thanks to all of your generous donations. We still want to hit $2000 by July 10 (if we do, everyone who pre-orders our new album will get an exclusive t-shirt). With your help, we can do it! To pre-order the album, just donate $20 to our Kickstarter campaign. Also, for one day only we're offering a very special prize. If you donate $100 to our campaign before 6 PM today, you'll receive two (2) tickets to Eddie Vedder tonight at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre! Plus, you'll receive all the other prizes that donating $100 gets you! That's nearly half off the face value ($180)! More details can be found on our Kickstarter Page. So, if there are any Pearl Jam fans on our mailing list, you've just hit the jackpot. Also, don't forget, we're still uploading exclusive videos to the Kickstarter blog that only donors can see. We'll probably put a new one up later this week, so donate today!

See you at the show!

Spare some change?

Dear fans, friends, and family:

We need your help. We are trying to raise $1,000 by July 10 to print the first 500 copies of our new album.

We've spent the last three months in the studio recording and we're almost ready to unleash this beast upon an unsuspecting public. Imagine Exile on Main Street, crossed with Led Zepplin IV, add a dash of Reign in Blood, and I think you get the picture. CD players and car stereos across the Southeast will be melting this August, not from the oppressive summer heat, but from the mind-burning, earth-scorching, soul-splitting sounds of Attractive Eighties Women!

What do you get in return for helping us? Just visit our project page to see the list of fabulous prizes. Donations as small as $1 help, but as you donate more the rewards get better and better. Also, you will only be charged for your donation if we actually meet our $1,000 goal by the deadline.

We've spent a lot of time and money on this new album already, because we love making music and we love you. Without our fans, we'd have no reason to do this. We feel this is the very best work we've ever created and we want to share it with the world. We want you to hear this album. We want you to see the artwork and hold it in your hands. Please help us make that possible. DONATE TODAY!

New website design coming soon

I am going to be redesigning our website very soon. This one is old and crappy, so I probably won't be adding many more updates to it until the new one is launched (sometime in the next couple of months, hopefully). In the mean time, if you want to keep up with us, the best places to check out are our mailing list, myspace, facebook and twitter. We also have a calendar feed you can subscribe to in either ical or google calendar.
