*This Friday* August 27th, Daytonics slay Quencher's Saloon

Start your weekend off on the good foot; the Daytonics are laying down their patented blend of garage soul and sweaty dance fever THIS Friday night!

This is the one you should come to, and bring all of your friends to. For real.

This show is a benefit for our great friend and 'whip'-boardist, the magnificent and immensely soulful Jonny Drexler.

This show is (probably) our last show of the year.

This weekend is one of the last weekends of summer 2010.
And the Daytonics will be smokin', I guarantee.

So line up your babysitters early. We'll be playing at 10:30 and 11:30, so tell them you'll be home late.

Note: we are also doing fund-raising on line. We have t-shirts, convert videos, and more on eBay. Search for 'daytonics benefit'.

yo yo yo! coo-koo-ri-koo and pixel party are at the renegade craft fair this weekend

shana has been building up her yo yo army and is prepared for total world domination

shawn has pixellated dogs, apes, ghosts and more. you might say he has mega-pixels but that would be kind of dumb.

renegade is not your granny's craft fair. there will be no tea cozys or cutesy snowmen, and any cross-stitching in sight is sure to contain some profanity. there are over 300 booths this time, and the fair takes place on division street between damen and paulina in chicago.
