Playing a show in Hammond, IN at a bar called the Fifth Amendment this Saturday July 7th. Sunday is my wifes birthday, please send regards in person.
Playing a show in Chicago Tuesday July 10th. Aarons birthday is the 13th and mine is the 14th. Early birthday wishes welcomed and encouraged.
Playing shows in Indianapolis and Cleveland in early September. We will have a 7" on Cowabunga that will be part of their singles club. We will have a few copies of this record for sale at these shows, but only 500 will be pressed, so don't snooze. Music has been recorded for this record and Aaron will be doing vocals this week.
Long time Repos/Ropes bass player Adam Sharani has parted ways with the band due to increasing personal commitments. The split is amicable and we all wish Adam the best of luck with his family and any future creative endeavors.
The Ropes have a new bass player named Andrew who is a total dude.
The Ropes LP is still being held up by technology. Any orders for tapes from me are going out this week, sorry for the delay. Papa bear hibernates in the summertime.
