Thank You with a Joke!

Andy Ingram

Thank you to everyone who joined us to experience "the magic of Communivale™" last Saturday. All of you who showed up were friendly and wonderful. The weather was perfect. The food was too. Okay Lindon released a new record. Carriers impressed everyone. April & June's voices were sweet. The Florals, Jill & Micah, Daniel Dye and the Miller Road Band, Get in the Ark, Wise Words, and L'Albatros all sounded great. Oh, and we created a "Space Pillow™"

If you missed it, you especially missed this joke Brenna delivered to kick off the fest:

"Welcome to Communivale, just make sure you pronounce it right. It's Coe-Moo-Ni-Val, like Carninvale. It only becomes Communivale (Coe-moo-ni-vale) once you've had a few drinks!"

Her joke is still hilarious even days later.

Plan Your Summer

Andy Ingram

We have a lot going on over the remaining summer months. Plan accordingly!

On Tuesday August 9, Jill & Micah are playing a house show in Columbus with Get in the Ark. Get in touch if you want the details.

On Saturday August 13, Jill & Micah are joining our good friends Daniel Dye and the Miller Road Band at their Madden Road Micro Music Fest. The fest takes place in Mutual, Ohio at their family farm. Many other great artists are playing and it is always such a fun day of music.

Then the following day, on Sunday August 14, Kris N. is playing a solo set at a benefit concert for our friend. The 1984 Draft and Tod Weidner (Shrug, Motel Beds) are also playing this show at the YelloW Cab Tavern in Dayton.

On Wednesday August 17, Jill & Micah are making their live radio debut on CD 102.5 FM in Columbus. They are playing a show that night at The Big Room Bar, of which the first two songs will be broadcast live on air. We are really excited for a bigger audience to hear J&M.

On Saturday September 24, Communivale is back. This is our Poptek-centric, somewhat annual musical picnic. More details will be forthcoming, including the newest artist to join Poptek who will be releasing his solo record that same day.

The Florals have a new EP releasing later this year. XL427 may have a full-length to release as well. And maybe we'll have a few other releases soon. So again, plan accordingly.

Communivale Rained Out.

The weather in Springfield is wet and cold and windy and it's just going to get worse. So we are cancelling Communinvale tonight. The weather is usually really nice still on the first weekend of October. Not tonight. Sorry.
