I don't know how many of you signed up for the Eenie Meenie newsletter, but "Story" is being used for a promo clip for Investigation Discovery.

Also it hasn't been posted but Great Northern came out with a video for "New Tricks." There was also an article when Eenie Meenie announced the new video. The article can be seen here: F*ckYEAHGreatNorthern.

Tom Morello's Street Sweeper Social Club to Play FM 103.9's Third Thursday This Month
By Kelly Wilson in Show Announcements
Wednesday, Aug. 12 2009 @ 6:35AM

Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave's Tom Morello will bring his new band, Street Sweeper Social Club, to downtown Scottsdale Thursday, Aug. 20. The band
will perform during FM 103.9's monthly 3rd Thursday Block Party on Craftsman Court, across from Dos Gringos. The group, which also features Boots Riley, released its self-titled debut album earlier this summer and embarked on a two-month North American trek opening for Nine Inch Nails and Jane's Addiction.The 11-song disc was produced by Morello and features Riley on vocals and Stanton Moore on drums.

"It's revolutionary party jams," Morello has said of the album. "It's got huge steamroller riffs combined with depth, charge, funk, while Boots unloads clip after clip of incendiary rhymes rich with satire and venom,"

The all-ages, free block party, which kicks off at 8 p.m., will also include local boys Weird is the New Cool and LA indie-rock outfit Great Northern. The latter features vocalist/guitarist Solon Bixler, formerly the guitarist for the Jared Leto-fronted 30 Seconds to Mars.

The fun begins at 8 p.m.

hey guys, long time no talk.

as a lot of people have guessed, the line up for GN has changed a bit.  davey is no longer with the band, he's currently playing with a band called everest, you can check them out on myspace
here.  mr michael is also not playing with great northern anymore (they threatened to change their name to "great "we motivate people to start a band of your own" northern :)" xD), but i didn't ask who he's playing with now.

as far as i can guess, rachel and solon recorded the album themselves, possibly with the help of friends, although being the incredible multi-instrumentalists they are, i'd've guessed they could do it all alone.  keyboardist marissa micik and drummer dusty rocherolle will be playing with them on tour, and they are still looking for a bass player.

not sure if everybody was aware, i forgot until i got reminded tuesday night, but Remind Me Where the Light Is is available on itunes right now for 5.99.  the hard copy is still not out until the 28th, but if you're impatient (like me), it is available on itunes now.  and guys, it is amazing.  i am so in love with it, no joke.

saturday, april 18th is record store day, and to celebrate both that and the release of RMWTLI, a select group of record stores will be offering a 7" of "Houses" and "For Weeks" (i don't know this song...) and a tote bag, FOR FREE.  the full list can be seen here: 
http://eeniemeeniejapan.com/images/emr/records_stor_day.jpg.  i would guess this list is similar to the list of record stores that released the reissue of the Sleepy EP with the free tote, but i'm not sure.  i'm pretty sure one of the stores listed (culture clash) is one of my local record stores, and i will be calling them tomorrow (and probably e-mailing chris merrow, from the EM street team, tonight) to see if they are getting it.  if one of the names on the list is a name of a local store for you, i would call them and check it out.  i got the link from the miny moe blog, but i'm still not sure about it...  *ETA - talked to chris and it's a definite.  he just said you have to ask at the counter, they won't be on display or anything.  a list of where the other stores are located may be forthcoming, we'll have to see.

anyway, anyone going to the cleveland or columbus shows?  i'm planning on going to both, and i'm trying to get as many people as possible to come along.  they deserve a bigger crowd than 15 people.  <3
