Hello South Bay!

Thank you all you die-hard South Bay fans that for years have trekked north to the urban jungles of SF and Oakland to hear us sing. This next concert is a tribute to you -- and it comes to you live from Palo Alto! (Being equal opportunity performers, we welcome audiences of all localities and encourage all North Bay, East Bay, Mid Bay, and SF'ers to come party with us.)

We're joining forces with Redshift, to give all Richter Scales fans (South Bay or elsewhere!) a stand-out Thursday night. While the TV networks battle it out with shows you're going to TiVo anyway, we'll give you a show worth regaling to all your co-workers the next day. It'll almost feel like you're starting your weekend early!

So if you couldn't make it to the San Francisco International Film Festival VIP party and didn't catch us at TechCrunch's Crunchies awards, break up the week next Thursday with something different -- the Richter Scales and Redshift, a little something we like to call... RS ^2.


Date: Thursday, May 8th
Time: 8:00 PM
Place: Auditorium, Palo Alto Arts Center, 1313 Newell Road, Palo Alto, 94301
Cost: FREE

Look forward to seeing you and your friends there!

a goodbye and a concert

It didn't really occur to me until I last visited the site that, except for announcing our video's award nominations, our blog has been kind of dormant for the past four months. I blame Curtis, or rather, the lack of Curtis. After seven and a half years in the group, our founding bass has departed for points north. We miss you already, big C!

And since Curtis usually did things like this:

Admission is free; mingle with both groups at a reception to follow the show!
