March Madness!

March MadnessAfter stringing out just a few shows over many moons, we’re hitting March 2013 with a vengeance. We’ll be playing a few of our favorite venues, performing a few marathon-length sets, and they’re almost all free!

Friday, March 1st @ Wintergrass
Playing the Montana Bluegrass Society showcase on Friday night. Look for the Montana Bluegrass Hospitality Suite at the Hyatt. No, we’re not from Montana, but we’ve gotten naked in plenty of hot springs there.
FREE, All Ages

Friday and Saturday, March 8 & 9 @ the Snorting Elk, Crystal Mountain
We’ve had our April date on the books for a while. But thankfully we got the emergency call for March as well. We’ll be trading out Ken for Pat Ferris on bass for this weekend.
FREE, 21+

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, March 15-17 @ TS McHugh’s in Queen Anne
Our favorite place to be on St Patrick’s day. With the holiday falling on a Sunday we’ll be there all dang weekend! Friday and Saturday are free, Sunday will cost you, but trust us, you can not put a price on the fun to be had!
FREE, All Ages before 9pm

And if you can’t catch one of these shows, make sure to watch the NCAA basketball tournament. Mike and Tom may make cameos on Michigan’s championship run…

Beer and Chocolate for Charity – II

Georgetown Brewing Co.

Seattle, WA

It’s the Sunday before Valentine’s Day, so what better way to celebrate than with beer and chocolate? The event will feature pairings of a scrumptious variety of Theo Chocolate and your favorite beers from Georgetown Brewing. Marcarina Bakery will provide a variety of yummy snacks. Entertainment will be provided by The Blue Tracks a “blues / rock” style band and, back by popular demand, Creeping Time, a blue grass style band featuring the famous Dave Forrester on drums. You can feel good about it, too, while indulging your palate, with proceeds going to charity Autism Speaks, the nation’s largest Autism science and advocacy organization.

Also on tap will be a sneak preview of the 2012 batch of Lisa’s “the sun is trying to kill me” Chocolate Stout, to be officially released Feb. 14th. Georgetown Brewing uses 20lbs of Theo Chocolate to brew this fantastic concoction. The evening will end with stout flouts combining Molly Moon’s ice cream and Georgetown Brewing’s amazing chocolate stout.

Tickets are $50 and limited, so get them while you can.

Tickets are available at Georgetown Brewing’s new retail location, 5200 Denver Ave S in Georgetown (cash and check only, please) or online (all major credit cards accepted) at: http://teamgtown.brownpapertickets.com

Riding into the Sunset

Creeping Time has played in Ballard coming up on triple-digit numbers. And as sidemen in other acts we’ve played the Sunset Tavern dozens of times. However, we’re excited to actually play the Sunset Tavern as Creeping Time for the first time this coming Thursday.

We’ll be sharing the night with our friends the Weatherside Whiskey Band – an awesome high-energy country act that includes Cajon. Also on the bill is Dillon Warnek.

Slim’s Last Chance. Hopefully headed back soon

Great time at Slim’s Last Chance last night.

We were down a drummer and fiddle player, so we picked up Aimee Zoe for the evening and she provided an incredible-edible-egg’s worth of energy to keep us in top shape. Also helping out was some great stage sound!

Thanks to all who came out. We hope to do it again soon… on the truck in the back yard!

The Smolder Sessions

The Smolder Sessions

Thank you for your support and patience!!  After 2 years, we are excited to announce our long awaited album ”The Smolder Sessions,” is finished and ready for consumption!!!!

Available online now!

We are very proud of this record and hope you enjoy listening as much as we’ve enjoyed creating it.  You’ll find songs about a Vermont quarry, cars, trucks, murder, prison, autumn stars, hitchhiking, kissing, drinking, life, death, redemption, and heaven…not necessarily in that order.

As Ken writes in the liner notes, “a lot of life has happened during the recording of this album…” Continue reading
