We just posted info about a cool show we’re playing on Friday, July 30 in Marshall, MI. It’s a benefit for the Marshall Skate Park. I think it’s common knowledge that AM is huge in the xtreme sports community and we’re happy to help out. Also playing is our good friend Mike Reed (Small Brown Bike, LaSalle) and Ian Graham. There will also be a silent auction for custom skate decks with designs by local and national artists. I’m hoping for lots of skulls and fire. The Dark Horse is a great brewery and the outdoor stage is a great place to see some music and hang out. Please consider attending. Cover is just 5 bones!
It’s probably less well known that our drummer, Alex Trajano, is also a huge supporter of Detroit’s x-sports scene. Alex manages a mixed martial arts little league team here in the motor city. Most of the matches that I’ve seen have been in his backyard, but I understand (or rather he tells me) that there is actually a league that oversees all of the “action.” I guess it’s a great development tool for the young people who are involved and anyway the parents seem to love it.
I’m happy to report that AM has been making new music. We debuted a few new songs at the Green Street Fair at the beginning of May and we’ve been consistently invading David’s environs at the Tempermill to make racket. We hope to get new music up soon, hopefully before our show at this year’s Arts, Beats, and Eats in Royal Oak, MI on Labor Day Weekend. More info on that show soon.
Finally, we’ve been soliciting questions from our legions of fans via our Facebook page. We’ve been videotaping our answers and we’ll be posting the first of many video updates soon. If you have a question for a martian, wander on over to our FB page our email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
