Blister in the Sun

Rob and I (Pete) just returned back from our good friend Ben Deters' bachelor party, which was pretty awesome. Lot's of reveling in our manhood and that kind of thing, haha. Rob, myself, and our good friend Chris (who was in a band with the 3 of us before we became The Buttercream Gang) played a little mostly acoustic mini-show for everyone, which was pretty fun. we got to bust out a few jams we used to play back in the day as well as some new sing-a-longs. All in all it was a really nice time.
Our band has a number of shows lined up this summer. They mostly came together this last week, which is nice because we can now have a slight feeling of productivity (aside from the productivity associated with the album, which should be done by the end of the month) and forward movement.
Not too much new to report other than that you should go check out the shows on our myspace page, download the free mix that I have posted below, and watch the video for this song by The Specials that I stumbled across yesterday. It's pretty haunting for a reggae/ska song, much better than most modern ska that I hear.

1. Kunta Kinte Version One - The Revolutionaries
2. Sunny Ti De Ariya - King Sunny Ade & His African Beats
3. Grenada: Shango - Norris Welsh
4. The Book of Love - The Magnetic Fields
5. Freaky In the Club - R. Kelly
6. Lovesick - Lindstrøm & Christabelle
7. Radiance - Oppenheimer Analysis
8. I Feel Good Put Our Pants On - JT
9. Let It Bleed - The Rolling Stones
