Let’s Make Out

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

Lime Colony is going to be churning out a Saturday Night Special on February 5th especially for you (yes, you) at the Make Out Room in San Francisco. Come on out, have a coupla and rock it out. The S goes down at 7:30.

Love,

Lime Colony

3225 22nd Street, San Francisco, CA

Don’t forget – webcast tonight!

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

Night Owls rejoice!  Lime Colony is casting web at 11:30pm TONIGHT (1/19) at the link below.  So gather around the warm glow of your old 15″ CRT monitor and observe.

Alternately, you may come watch live (just make sure you let us know so we can put you on the guest list), which would be grand.  Show-up time is 11 for y’all.

Hi there – webcast

Thursday, January 13th, 2011

Hello there. The Holidays have been quite busy, what with all of the things to do and people to impress. As such, Lime Colony has been mostly out of commission. But worry not, friends; we have been practicing being good colonists and you will not be disappointed.

So, it is with healthy release of musical tension that we announce that Wednesday, January 19th, we will be playing a 1 hour webcast streamed from the Ex’pression College For Digital Arts (or ECFDA, pronounced ‘ecfda’).  The festivities will begin at 11:30pm at this link.  Additionally, the first 30 people who own brown pants (you’ll want to wear them) to RSVP to limecolony [at] gmail [dot] com will get to attend in actual person((!) (for free(!))), where you’ll no doubt be completely destroyed (in a very good way).  For those who (like us) have no inclination to put on clothes (save socks) after 8pm, crack open a can/bottle/flask/pony-keg of your favorite beverage, pop some corn and turn out the lights.

Until then, please enjoy this video of really fast go-karts (go-carts).

Do Not Drink This Holiday Cheer, Vol. I

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

It’s that time of year again, when the men of Lime Colony make merry, avoid each other for around three straight weeks of vacation, and try and fail to put extra cinnamon sticks into every beverage imaginable.  And now this year’s time-of-year is double special, because we are sharing with you our first EVER release of a single.  It’s a holiday single.  It was stolen by thieves but partially revived.  It has an A-side and a B-side (I’m not sure which song is which).  It’s for you.

As noted above, you should not drink this particular holiday cheer, but we’ll certainly advise you to download it:

DOWNLOAD NOW!

Many thanks to Jennifer, who made it known very early on that she thought a holiday album would be a fantastic idea, and who graciously accepted the compromise of a less epic but just as heartfelt holiday single with an A-side and a B-side.  Unless you are a sour-breathed burglar, we sincerely hope you enjoy listening to this free treat, and we sincerely encourage you to share it with friends and family.

Do Not Drink This Holiday Cheer, Vol. I

Warm Wishes,

Lime Colony

Holiday Pleasantries

Sunday, December 19th, 2010

As noted at our various social media locations (Twitter, Facebook, maybe even Myspace), Earl’s house was recently burglarized. The best news to this point is that nobody was harmed, but the damage includes a broken window, two missing laptops, and Earl’s son’s camera.* One of the laptops contained at least 20 hours of mixing work for the holiday single we were hoping to release in the coming days.

In an effort to turn this stocking full of holiday lemons into something a little more ‘ade-ish, and as a big peppermint-flavored middle finger in the faces of pencil-dick burglars across this great country, we are releasing unfinished drafts of both the A and B sides of our single this week, in mp3 downloadable format. (Plan #1 – mailing the thieves a corked wine bottle full of one week’s worth of our farts – ended up being too complicated.)

The single, our first EVER, is titled “Do Not Drink This Holiday Cheer, Vol. I,” and is overflowing with two proudly unpolished recordings. The first, “Lo,” is a Lime Colonized version of a 400-year-old winter hymnal; the second, “Thank You,” is a less-than-400-year-old Lime Colony original. All told, it’s a nice low-key juxtaposition we hope everyone will enjoy as 2010 becomes 2011.


Fuck you, small-time house-burglars.

Lime Colony – Review’d

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

Beloved Friends,

The nonpareil women and men over at Pirate Cat Ratio have reviewed our recently-released album, Lime Colony.  You can read it >>>>here<<<<.  We encourage you to check it out, if for no other reason than because you care so much.

Excerpt:

The album presents a nice exploration of sounds within the folk rock stamp, including an interesting array of instrumentation, with touches of ethereal moog, swelling brass, and, per their myspace page: “walpotar, sansula, accordion, and circus bees.” Well-produced and highly-listenable, Lime Colony is a very solid effort from an ambitious young band, well worth a few rotations for any set of curious ears.

Really, you’re the best friends a band could have.

Love,

Lime Colony

CD Release Show on 5/12!

Monday, March 29th, 2010

Beloved, Loyal and Tenacious Fan,

We here at Lime Colony HQ are pleased downright giddy to announce the release of our shiny new album, Lime Colony.  The full-length work makes us tear up when we listen to it for so many reasons (you cannot count them – the number is in Spanish an exotic foreign language).

Anyway, said CD will be released at BOTTOM OF THE HILL ON MAY 12TH!  Passenger & Pilot (our friends and excellent musicians) and Blood & Sunshine (music-makers extraordinaire) will be getting the night going for us and we urge you to come early to hear experience them.

Doors open at 8.  21+.  $8 (CD’s will be on sale for $10).

Strikethrough.

Show this Wednesday (12/16)!

Sunday, December 13th, 2009

reindeer5Folks, this will be the last show (of 2009) EVER.  If you miss this, you’re going to regret it for the rest of your life.  And if not, you’ll regret it for HOURS.

At any rate, we’re doing an acoustic dinner show at the Beale St. Bar And Grill this Wednesday.  The show starts at 8.  Bring your santa clothes and your reindeer (and your festivus poles).  And your friends.

See you there, friends.

Show this Saturday! 11/7!

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

Everyone! Mark your calendars! Lime Colony is playing this Saturday at the Beale St. Bar and Grill! If you missed the last show because of the hurricane, or if, like me, you just didn’t go, this is your big chance to see us right up in our faces!  The show starts at 8:30 and costs $5!  That’s pocket change (if you have very large pockets)!  Tell all your friends! Tell your neighbors! Tell your children! Exclamation!

8:30p, 21+, $5
