For Halloween this year, the entire band had planned to perform in gold spandex jumpsuits for our Oct. 28th gig at the Burren Backroom. But word got out and the whole thing spiraled into a huge kerfuffle. You probably read about it in the pages of Variety or Highlights Magazine. No? Well, then you probably saw the coverage on Univision or The Tea-Cozy Channel. No? Really? It was a whole thing.
Anyway, to make a long story short-and-totally-fabricated: Some well-intentioned fans staged an intervention while another faction--equally well-intentioned--offered to pay the cost of the spandex. In the end, however, having lost the element of surprise, the band felt it best to go to Plan B. So...
On Saturday, October 28th, in front of fans, friends and family, the entirety of TSN11 will perform music you love dressed as middle-aged white guys who love playing music. Come witness our subtle transformation starting at 7pm
TSN11 returns to the Burren Back Room for a Saturday evening show on May 6. Music from 7 until 9; doors open at 6. Join us to celebrate Spring. There will be special guests and other surprises. You don't want to miss this one, folks!
We're back in the Front Room of The Burren in Davis Square, Somerville for 4 FREE shows from 7p - 10p every Sunday night. in November. We'll be bringing you some great new songs in a laid-back atmosphere where you can enjoy great food, great beer and all-around bonhomie and gemütlichkeit. Bring some friends around to finish off the weekend in style.
After a summer hiatus, we're thrilled to be back at the Burren! We've got some great new material and covers and we're looking forward to a really fun show. Don't forget the Burren is family-friendly so you can spend the babysitter money on fine food and beer! We'll post the ticket link as soon as we get it and we're going to do our best to sell this show out, so get tickets in advance if you can.
Those who are familiar with the local Boston music scene will understand our excitement at having a chance to play the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge. A home to many of Boston's best acts, including Session Americana, LIzard Lounge is one of our favorite venues. Some members of TSN11 had the opportunity to judge an Open Mic there (the 500th Open Mic run by our good friend, Tom Bianchi)
To top it off, the "Opening Band" is The Rachel Sumner Trio, an Americana Supergroup featuring Rachel Sumner of Twisted Pine, Kathleen Parks and Mali Obomsawin (of Lula Wiles) Each of these women is a brilliant, talented performer and the combination is going to be something to see.
Tickets are $5 in advance and $7 at the door. There may be fees associated with the advanced tickets, but we are going to do our best to sell this one out, so it might be a good idea to get them early.
We've been working on some new material - originals and covers - and we hope you'll come out and hear them. We'll also have a guest appearance by Chloe Kostman of the Oshy Annas who will sit in on some songs. The Burren is family-friendly and it should be a great turnout. We hope to see you there. Get advance tickets here. Davis Square is on the Red Line one stop before Alewife.
