Reverb Fest is on Saturday! BOAT digs in to work on LP#3!

This Saturday, BOAT will be playing Seattle Weekly's Reverb Fest at 8 o'clock sharp. It will be the last BOAT show for a while. This is because new songs are being arranged and furiously written for LP#3.

M. McKenzie
is all but guaranteed to be playing more guitar/and shaker than ever. J. Goodman will balance the role of dedicated father of two/tofu product enthusiast/skronky keyboardmaster/lead guitarist/bellkit leader/dedicated husband/and hopefully Craigslist piano man. J. Long will pick up where he left off as heavy hitter/kick drum captain/Wrigley Field daygame supporter/ and all around sweat master. D. Crane will be playing fuzz bass/barre chord guitar/and possibly even turning his Tacoma garage into a cement floor hit factory/recording studio/home to the aforementioned and much hoped for Craigslist piano.

There will be guest stars and guest BOATers. Galactic Ricky will most likely add saxophones/and harmony vocals to the poppiest songs. Fred Schneider from the B-52's will be approached about singing the choruses of (Do the) Magic Centipede. Creeping Weed Pete will be begged for some lead guitar/extreme reverb guitar work.

Look for updates to sporadically appear throughout the fall months. All signs point to a 40 minute masterpiece.

Wait! BOAT adds last minute show!

BOAT will be opening up for (and representing as the only US band on the bill) Liam Finn and The Veils....this Friday at the High Dive. BOAT will play at 9 o'clock. You could consider it a warm up show (for what may very well be BOAT's last show of 2008)for BOAT's appearance at The Seattle Weekly Reverb Festival on October 4th.

REVERB FEST is October 4th, 2008

BOAT will be playing an all ages show at the Salmon Bay Eagles Hall in Ballard, at 8pm on October 4th. It will be a blow out. After that it is full steam ahead on LP#3. There are so many new songs. It is a bit of a connect the dots process.

MUSICFEST NW----this Friday (9/5)

There are only two shows on the BOAT calendar, before they go on a self induced/imposed/proposed live show hiatus. Preparations are underway to begin work on LP#3.

This Friday, at the Towne Lounge, BOAT will be playing a super sweaty set at 12 am. Please come sweat it out. Expect Galactic Ricky to be there.
