I'm so excited to do this I can't even wait! The triple music video release party has been booked for September 21st, a no cover charge show at Famous Dave's in Uptown. This show lands almost exactly on the one year anniversary of the Artist Signal countdown party! We'll be releasing Waiting for Me, Kingpin, and Fill It Up that night, everyone through the door will get a free DVD copy of the videos, you'll want to make it because the videos won't be released to YouTube until Thanksgiving. So mark your calenders now, some folks have already called to reserve tables!

The first pressing of Junkyard Rhythm is almost sold out, if you'd like to get a hand-numbered copy act now, there are only about 200 left. Copies are available at any Crankshaft show or online at: CrankshaftMusic.com.

E-mail Print PDF

crankshaftYep, it's true, I'm leaving my 20's at the end of this month, and I'm planning on going out with a bang! 
I hope you'll all join me for my 30th birthday party on Sunday, June 30th (it's my golden birthday!) from 2-6pm on 2nd Avenue in Downtown Anoka. Kevin James will be opening the show at 2pm followed by a Crankshaft and the Gear Grinders performance. This is a free street party, and all ages are welcome! The shops on second avenue all chipped in to host this party, please show your support. Downtown Anoka has been struggling over the course of the last decade, let's all band together to help this old river town sustain.

 

We finished filming the Kingpin music video a couple weeks ago, I'm really happy with how the footage turned out, I'll be spending the next couple weeks editing it all together. I'm planning a triple music video release party on September 21st at Famous Dave's, landing almost exactly on the one year anniversary of the Artist Signal countdown party! 

Hope to see you at a show this month! Cranky.
