The weather’s hot, school is out, and the fireworks are ready! Hope you’re enjoying your holiday festivities.
DL has some exciting gigs coming up this month, starting with a return to Explo at Yale to teach and perform for their high school students on 7/6 and 7/28. While those performances are private, you can come see Jake with some of Boston’s best stand-up comics in The Sky at Aeronaut Brewery on Sunday, 7/9 at 7:30PM.
In August, Drunken Logic will return to the Lucky Seven Concert Series at Faneuil Hall with their full lineup to play originals and covers for FREE — swing by on Thursday, 8/10 at 7PM. Then Jake and Mark will play at GreenFest on City Hall Plaza at noon on Saturday, 8/12.
In the midst of all of this, we have some other plans we’re working on — not the least of which is our third album, which we’ve been recording for a few months now. We can’t tell you everything we’re thinking about yet, but we will have some very big announcements in the next couple of months.
Stay tuned, and stay cool! Hope to see you out in the sun very soon.
Hi everyone! Many thanks to everyone at SENEFest for having us again, and coming out to hear us and watch our video. What a great night!
May is still busy for us, as we’ve got three acoustic gigs coming up. Our first is at Night Shift Brewery in Everett on Tuesday, May 9 at 7PM — it’s part of a stand-up comedy showcase called Hell Yeah with our friend Sam Ike! We can’t wait for a night full of beer and laughs with Sam and other great local comics like Kelly MacFarland and Towanda Gona. Admittance is FREE, but 21+. Can’t wait to see you there!
We’ve also got a two gig day on 5/13 — Jake will be performing at Somerville PorchFest at the corner of Jay St. and Howard St. from 4-6PM, and then we’ll return to Smoke Shop BBQ in Cambridge at 9PM as well. Additionally, we’ll be back at the Shops at Long Wharf in Newport RI on Sunday 5/28 at 1PM. We’re anticipating your requests already! And of course, we’ll play plenty of songs of our own as well.
Also, keep an eye out for Jake at Faneuil Hall on Thursdays this month — he’ll be making his triumphant return very soon.
One more thing — our website got a little makeover! You should check it out if you haven’t already. Many thanks as always to Danny Cassman for his help.
Summer is almost here! We’ve got some exciting plans to perform and record over the next few months. And we can’t wait to spend those months with you guys.
Season’s greetings! By season, I mean the season that should have ended weeks ago. Seriously. We hope your sidewalks and driveways aren’t obstacles courses anymore.
Speaking of “What A Beautiful Morning,” it is now available on iTunes, Spotify, and everywhere else you can buy music online.
Lastly, we returned to the studio a couple of weeks ago! We’ve got a lot of written material to work on, and the plan is to keep recording throughout the year. No major plans yet, but we’re excited to develop some new stuff for you to hear, and you will definitely get glimpses of it at some of our shows. (Shout out to everyone who came to McGann’s).
Stay warm and stay woke! We’ll see you soon.
We hope your 2017 is looking up. As much as we can be upbeat about it, anyways…
We want to help you improve your outlook on this young year, and we’ve got two great shows coming up that should help. This Saturday, Jake and Austin will take the DL acoustic show to The Smoke Shop BBQ! Join us on 2/4 for requests, originals, good grub and tasty drinks. Should be some great lowkey fun!
If you’re looking for something high energy, however, you won’t want to miss our show at McGann’s on Friday, 2/24! Sponsored by our friends at WEMF, the lineup features great bands like Pompo, Moonstone Lady and Long Arm Rex — and the whole thing is hosted by local legend Dave Crespo! And if that wasn’t enough to convince you, it’s also Jake’s 27th birthday. So come celebrate with us! 7:30 doors // 21+ // $10 at the door, $8 advance.
As fun a show as the McGann’s gig will be, it will still be a bittersweet night. 2/24 will be Ryan’s last live show with us for awhile — he will be working on our new album with us this year, but needs time to work on other projects. So come and share his last gig with us for awhile! He can teach you how to stare down the future like this:
See you this month everybody! Be well.
May your 2017 be an opportunity to start fresh. We certainly are — we have a new domain name! We are now www.drunkenlogicmusic.com, because to hell with hyphens in URLs (don’t worry, the old one still works too).
Thank you all for an unforgettable New Year’s Eve, and for brightening every day of 2016 for us. If you missed it, here is our intro video from First Night Boston on Saturday:
Happy holidays everyone! We hope that you have space in your fridge again, and that you aren’t as offended by that thing your uncle said as you were a week ago.
2016 has been a rough year in many, many ways. So we don’t know about you, but we are SO ready for 2017. And DL will be ringing it in in style this year, as part of the First Night Boston lineup on New Year’s Eve! First Night is Boston’s signature NYE event, and has been for 40 years — this year’s lineup includes other great bands like TigermanWOAH and Air Traffic Controller. There will be ice sculptures, light displays, and LOTS of fireworks. The whole thing is TOTALLY FREE and runs all day on 12/31 and 1/1 in Copley Square — Drunken Logic will be on at 7:30PM. And if you can’t make it in person, the event will be broadcast throughout New England on NECN!
While this has been a rough year, it’s been an incredible one for us as well. We’re so proud of the work we did and the stand we took ahead of this election. We have some big ideas cooking for next year, and we can’t wait to share them with you. In the meantime, please know how thankful we are for the friends and fans we have. You’re all wonderful and generous people, if we do say so ourselves. Thanks for everything you’ve done for us in 2016.
Here’s to a lovely holiday season and a happy new year. See you in 2017!
We are THRILLED to announce that we’ve donated “What A Beautiful Morning!” to the 30 Days, 50 Songs project for a Trump-Free America!!! Our song joins dozens of others by artists like Jimmy Eat World, R.E.M., Death Cab for Cutie and many, many more. All proceeds from sales & streams of our song and others in this project benefit the Center for Popular Democracy, a fantastic organization that fights for “an innovative pro-worker, pro-immigrant, racial and economic justice agenda.” Listen to the entire Spotify playlist here!
We are blown away by the reactions to our song and video, and the conversation that you all have started around it. The video has been viewed nearly 18,000 times in less than a week! Thank you to everyone for their passionate contributions.
Lastly, there are two days left to vote! Read about the issues, learn about the candidates, and then go fill out a ballot. It’s your right, but it’s also a responsibility to help decide what kind of country you want this to be.
Much love! More to come very soon.
We’re tired of people saying they want to “Make America Great Again.” When was America great? For whom was it great? And was it great because we never made mistakes, or because we fought to acknowledge and overcome those mistakes?
This is the official video for our new song, “What A Beautiful Morning!” — available now in our store. Many thanks to Mike at 41st Casanova Productions and Will from Chillhouse Studios for all their help with this project.
