Going to make this track public after being a mailing-list exclusive private track for a few months. I’m starting to write my review of the 20-year-old Dookie for Punknews so I’m in a very Green Day mood. Check it out! It’s pretty lofi since I owned no real mics when we recorded it in 2009, over a year before Outdoor Velour ever considered being a real, performing and album-releasing kinda band. I had also just inherited a lap-steel so the playing on that is very basic - YES this is a country version of a Green Day song that always sounded kinda country in the melody/harmonies anyway.

FREE download. Enjoy!

My Top 100 of the 70s. Again, not what I think should be on the list but what I personally like the most. Ranked with that same thought in mind - what do I LISTEN to the most? Argue in the comments, I encourage it.

Newly posted live video from our going away Bloomington show on April 26th. An oldie but a goodie which we hadn’t gotten a good live video of before. AWESOME video quality by Eric Ayotte and Zac Canale (two cameras! Oooo!) and edited together by Greg.

Coverage in Portugal!

Our cover of Masked Intruder’s “When I Get Out” has gotten coverage from Sharing Like a Boss, a Portuguese blog. Awesome.

My Top 100 of the 80s. Again, it’s MY favorites of the 80s, not the ones I think are the coolest that are SUPPOSED to be on a best-of-the-80s. Uncool stuff is on there-Mellencamp, Weird Al, Rush, Van Halen- cuz I think it’s good. Cool stuff that’s not on there-Public Enemy, anything metal. This is, for the most part, ranked #1 to #100, though I’ll probably mix it around frequently. Discuss how much you hate my list in the comments. I like to argue the merits of albums.

I thought we had a good haul yesterday, but today… we hit the MOTHERLOAD. Some punk rock chick selling everything she had transfered to digital. 25 cents a pop… ten bucks for all this. SCORE.

Movin’ time.

Howdy, y’all. We’re going to signing closing papers on our old and new houses the second week of June, and then moving June 20th. We’re going to be taking a break from shows to get settled in West Lafayette. But never fear! We’ll be continuing to demo stuff for our upcoming full length over the summer, so we should have a bunch of new tunes to bust out when we starting playing shows again in late August or September. See ya up in Boilermaker country!

How to be a woman in a band for over 15 years and still like it

notjustboysfunnope:

There’s an article on Vice/Noisey which has been making the internet rounds lately about being a lady in a band. I have mixed feelings about even mentioning the article, because I don’t want to belittle the author’s experiences and feelings, but it’s definitely important context. Reading it,…
