  • The Rugs and Chuck Berry – Saturday March 27 @ The Pageant (Saint Louis, MO) – This is a thrill and honor to play such a great venue and open for such a legend. We couldn’t be more excited!

Next, The Guns Silencer EP is now available for download on Amazon.com and Emusic.com (More stores including iTunes to follow in the upcoming weeks)

I have a new Moodring’s song almost done. I’ll probably post it this week. This is the third song Matt and I have put together for this project. When we get a few more done we’ll be releasing it as an EP.

Lou Whitney and Donnie Thompson’s album “Book Of Matthew Darkly” is about halfway mixed. I hope to have it out in March. It’s coming together nicely. If you haven’t heard the song’s I leaked check them out here.
