Two FIELD GUIDES Shows in October!!

{by BJK}

There has been a lot happening on the Field Guides front lately. First off, we have a brand spankin' new rehearsal space in the old Pfizer factory building in our beloved neighborhood of Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. The building housed manufacturing and research operations for the pharmaceutical behemoth from 1849 until just a few years ago. It's a truly surreal place, full of hazard signs, old lab equipment, eye-wash stations, and lots of vacant and eerie corridors. Last year a bunch of local food start-ups began leasing space in the abandoned building, and now our little band has a permanent home to practice and work on new material!

(Here's more fascinating info plus photos of the building: http://www.scoutingny.com/?p=4058)

We got the space just in time, because we're gearing up for 2 exciting shows in October. It'll be a big, burly incarnation of Field Guides, bulked up for the waning of summer.  There'll be a trumpet and a beefed up rhythm section and 2 or 3 guitars!  And new songs!!!

 The first show is with our good friends Ben Seretan (who's finishing up his residency in Alaska, swimming in cool waters and communing with bald eagles) & Alex Lewis, plus a cool band from Portland, OR, called Alameda. It's at Cake Shop in Manhattan, a venue we love in part for its Swell Maps namesake.  I saw a great show by The Clean there years ago; perhaps we'll cover a tune by one of those bands while we're there!

The show is on Tuesday, October 22, at 8pm. We're on third.

The second October show is on Thursday, October 24, at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn. We'll be playing with some heavier bands, including our friend Butch's band, Beasty.  Buy tickets here: http://www.cameony.net/event/349053-beasty-brooklyn/
