June 30th @ Garfield Artworks

Just in case you cats and dogs were not aware, we've got a show coming up this Thursday, June 30th at Garfield Artworks on Penn Avenue. It's with a math-y kind of indie rock band from Detroit called Meadower, as well as some hometown haberdashers like Sports Metaphors and Satyr/Elfheim.

It's gonna be an intimate little outing (read: no one will be there), so if you want a night of smooth jams and sultry harmonies, stay home and watch New York, New York, starring Liza Minelli and Robert De Niro. However, if you want to hang out in an empty room and listen to four idiots turn their instruments up way too loud, perhaps this is the social event for you. We have t-shirts for you to regrettably remember it by!

Door at 8p // Music at 9p

You didn't ask for them, but we got them anyway! It's a Low Man t-shirt, you sexy fuckers! Designed and printed by the fabulous Mike Budai for the AIR Summer Bash 2011 that we just played last night, these shirts are a limited print--so limited that we already ran out of smalls! If you want one, they're only five bucks, so let us know and we'll hold one in medium or large for you!

We will be getting more soon, in smaller and bigger sizes and maybe even some girl-cut shirts as well. But this first, limited-edition, super-special run of shirts is something every Low Man fan deserves. You forgot your dad on Father's Day? Buy him a shirt! Your girlfriend caught you naked with the cat? Buy her a shirt! It's got everything: cleavage, skulls, a goat's head... what more could you ask for?

This Saturday!

Just a few more days 'til Low Man hits up Artists Image Resource on the North Side with Allies. It's a great night full of food and drink (with beer provided by East End Brewery!) with musical performances and artist installations. Not only that, but screen printing will be going down right there in house and the whole thing is wrapping up in plenty of time for you to get out to the rest of the sick shows going on Saturday night (the sickest of which is, without a doubt, the Earth show happening at the Braddock Carnegie Library Theater). And for only $5 all going to funding A.I.R., that's pretty sick.

Low Man is going on around 9p and Allies will be on before us, so make sure you get there early enough to soak in all the jams. We'll be playing all of your favorites and we'll even have Mike Budai-designed t-shirts (the guy who made the awesome flyer above) for sale!! It's almost like we're a real band now. But don't worry, we're not. Luke will still accidentally unplug his guitar at least once and J.z. will forget the lyrics to either the first chorus of Roll the River Down or second verse of Golden Dawn even though he wrote them. But it'll be fun anyway! Or possibly due to all of that! Depends what you're into. We just hope you're into us!

June 18th @ A.I.R.

It's been a while since we've posted on here and we're terribly sorry about that, but we've been working on mad cool things, dawgs. First off, the cops shut down our show at the Doo-Wop Mansion about two-thirds of the way into Pile's set. It was a fucking shame because those dudes from Boston knew how to rock. But we'll talk more about that later, when we post up some of the pictures from that show.

What we've got going on now, other than preparations to record our EP and split with Chrononaut, is a totally sick show at the Artists Image Resource on the North Side. You may have heard of A.I.R. before, but even if you haven't, it is strongly possible you are wearing a t-shirt or are displaying a poster that was made there. It's the place tons of bands and artists go to do screen printing, and if you've ever admired any of Mike Budai's artwork (not a difficult thing to do, especially here in Pittsburgh), you've definitely benefitted from the resources at A.I.R.

So naturally, we are totally pumped to be able to support the initiative by playing their Annual Summer Bash next Saturday. But what we're even more pumped about is the fact that Mike Budai is making a custom Low Man t-shirt to sell at the gig! HOLY SHIT!! He is seriously one of our absolute favorite Pittsburgh artists (along with Andy Kehoe if he still counts, out there in Portland as he is now) and it is a goddamn honor to have him design a shirt for us!

Get your ass to the North Side and support this awesome group and eat food and drink dranks and come see Low Man for the first time in a month and buy one of our sick new t-shirts and get a pin too! In the meantime, we'll continue deviously planning for the summer, so get ready you sexy hot things!
