We’ve been really busy prepping for the finals of the Art For Progress ‘Clash of the Artists‘ event. We performed on 3/14 and won the competition. Thanks to everyone who supported us – all the people who voted for us and who came out and supported us. Also, thanks to 0h10m1ke for a great year of collaboration. We were also joined on the last song by Eliot Krimsky of Glass Ghost, JC Cassis and Ms. Stefani Peikin. Here are a bunch of great pics of the event taken by Stephanie Perez as well as a bunch of our previous show. We’re going on a bit of a hiatus from live shows – we’re in preproduction mode until we finish this record.
