Well, guys, we can’t give you new music yet but we can repackage the only two songs that we still play off American Crowbar, even though they don’t sound like this anymore!

New sounds coming soon! We mean it this time.

4 days until… NIGHTMARE at the Manor: SURPRISE!

Hello ghouls and gals, Melissa tuning in for a special surprise announcement about NIGHTMARE at the Manor….

I’m a nerd! As a former student of Manhattan School of Music, one of my favorite party activities in school was pulling out some Disney songbooks and sight reading them on the piano for everyone to sing along with me.  I’m bringing back my old tradition for the first time in years to celebrate this Halloween, and what better opportunity than NIGHTMARE at the Manor?

(ISN’T IT CONVENIENTLY NAMED?)

Bring your smartphones and get ready to pull up some lyrics!

We’re gonna sing along to Danny Elfman and Tim Burton’s musical masterpiece,

The Nightmare Before Christmas.

See you at the Manor.

Tuesday! Tuesday! Tuesday!

Team MxM is more excited than usual to hit the stage at our fave Ann Arbor dive, the Blind Pig, to rock out a new song or two. We’re opening for Ash Reiter, who are coming all the way from California to play Michigan as part of their coast to coast tour. Will they be brining the sun with them? Probably not. But they will be bringing sunny tunes like…

Check that sweet mint green guitar!
