Where you can see Lime Colony next. (SOON.)

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Dear Folks,

Some stuff is going down in Oakland, Calif.  Two things, really.

The first is, Lime Colony will be a musical presence right down the block from the next Oakland Art Murmur First Friday Art Walk (me, I call it OAMFFAW).  What’s happening: the bad boys of Lime Colony will be playing some tunes at the nice new location of Bittersweet Cafe.  It’s right next door to the also-pretty-new Oaklandish store.  It’s a short walk from all the splendid galleries of art that are open during these First Fridays.  And what we’ve been told is, there’s a hamburger truck parked right outside the door.  You go over there, you hear us, you eat a hamburg’, you see some local art.  That is:

Friday, June 1, 2012
live music 7-10PM
Bittersweet Cafe
1438 Broadway
Oakland, CA 94612

The second thing is, a few copies of our Lime Colony album can be found in CD form at 1-2-3-4 GO! Records in Oakland.  We are very pleased to have something on those shelves.  We highly recommend going to their store.  You don’t even have to buy our album.  You probably already have three copies anyway.  (WHO DOESN’T?)  But please actually go there and buy one more.  That is:

1-2-3-4 GO! Records
420 40th Street, Suite #5
Oakland, CA 94609

Thanks for still reading.  See you in Oakland.  We can’t wait.

Yours Sincerely,

Lime Colony

Welcome Back, Winter, and Thank You

Friday, December 16th, 2011

It’s been a year or so.  We never caught the one (ones?) who decided to take things illegally from Earl’s home, including a child’s camera, and including what would have been the final versions of our humble pair of winter songs (also a laptop computer).

Yet the unfinished versions survive!!  A year later, it seems they’ve held up pretty well – well enough to be given out for free again, even.  So here: a 100% recycled, paperless, downloadable gift from all the fellas in Lime Colony.

You can even burn ‘em onto a CD, slap a ribbon through the CD’s hole, and turn that ribboned CD into a badass Secret Santa present.

Go on.  Click that link up there and tell grandma and grandpa to crank up the hearing aids.  For Christmas.

Finally, thanks for reading.  To close out this festive update with a real bang, here is a re-link to the video for the second song in last year’s winter offering (Thank You).

Dan Roe made it.  When we saw it, we were blown away.  And we still are.  And we hope you enjoy it once again.

Finally finally, keep checking back here.  We’ll have an update on a January show really soon.

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

We’ve been podcast.

Thanks to Chad and Ryan at Monkey Hate Gomes for the kind words and nuanced inclusion of an old Lime Colony stand-by* on their podcast premier.

And I’m not just thanking them because they happen to share an apartment with me.  It really was very nice of them to include some Lime Colony samples.  Way nicer than the time they ate all of my ice cream from Trader Joe’s without asking but then replaced it (but then ate the replacement ice cream (which still hurts to think about)).

Also, a quick update for those of you yearning for still more Lime Colony news: we’re working as often as we can on songs for our new album.  If I had to estimate when the project will be complete, I’d say summer ’09.  But don’t let the wait get you down in the dumps!  We should have a show or two before then, where you can get an early sampling of some of our newest songs.

K.I.T.,

Lime Colony

*Lime Colony. “Did Your Mom Hang Up When She Heard It Was You.” The Advantage Of Getting There First. Self-Released, 2008.

LPs, etc.

EPs are great, huh?  But sometimes they don’t fill you up, which in many cases, is perfect.  Like a salad.  A musical salad.  With beans (they’re good for your heart).  The album that is presently consuming all or nearly all of our energy (seriously, we come to work in shorts these days and all sport nasty, nasty beards), was going to be an EP.  But then it started getting (way) behind schedule.  We wanted to finish it before Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/Festival of Lights/Hail-Earthworms Day, but, as the very existence of this posts indicates, that dream is shot.  SHOT.  Blam.

Anyway, the New Album (Untitled), is going to be a bona fide feature-length album (or as some would say, alblum).  Crazy.  Also, as part of this new thing, we’re going to be trying to get back in the public arena – holding fund-raising carwashes and bake sales and trying to make live music.  This means several things, but I’ll let you figure them out on your own.

Stale chocolate covered raisins are almost as good as fresh ones.  But if you eat too many, you’ll want to vomit.  Also, you may be attacked by giant ants, as is happening in the picture below.

  

Happy Hunting,

Earl

Updates

Thursday, July 3rd, 2008

Hello all!

We are not dead! In fact, we’ve never been aliver.

This has been a good week in music for the LC: a couple of excellent new songs were born and the song list for the next album has been created.  ‘What’s that? A nother album?.’ Yes! We’ll be taking time this summer to work hard on our yet-to-be-titled next EP. You can look for it in the fall. Or, if you just can’t wait to get some Lime Colony goodness, click on the “Buy Now” button over on the right. There you can buy “The Advantage Of Getting There First” (2007) for mere peanuts. The service is called PayPeanuts. Or PayPal. I can’t remember.

The video of our last gig at The Utah is in post-production and will
soon be in our hands. Highlights will be on YouTube. You’ll know when
it’s out.

Anyway, that’s all for now. Happy being.

Yoursest,

Earl
