Oh, Snowy Chicago! Well Netherfriends are about to wake up from their brief hibernation to start practice with their new temporary drummers Graham and Evan. We have our first show back in Chicago on February 15th on the Halfway House in Wicker Park and a new song almost finished being recorded. In the mean time, please enjoy these disturbing Canadian PSAs...God Bless Canada!

Hello friends. Our next show is February 23rd with A-Sides (Vagrant) and Division Day (Eenie Meenie) at Subterranean, 9pm $10...finally, an 18+ show! We're playing a party right after down the street at The Halfway House. We will play a huge game of spin the bottle, tongue usage mandatory.
At SXSW '08, we will be playing at the Black & Greene showcase/party on Friday, March 15 @ The Jackalope with Drug Rug, VIVA VIVA, Bryan Scary & The Shredding Tears and a Special Guest. We play at 5pm.
This is months from now but on May 3rd, we're going back to my home to play at the CAID (Contempary Art Institute) in Detroit for the Curare Festival.
I found this incredible poster online somewhere from our show at The Empty Bottle with Black Ladies and Yea Big + Kid Static. I never saw it.
