newsletter - february 2008

 
ooooooow... exciting isnt it?? if you dont know what im referring to then you must surely be living under a rock with internet access and you're only reading frames newsletters.... this weekend sees the guy and girl perform at the oscars, backed by one big fek-off orchestra and in front of an interesting audience. i'd say expect the odd 'is this really happening' look coupled with a bit of a cheesy grin every once in a while. and - if you didnt know, theyve been nominated for best song from a movie (along with some cartoon frogs and the odd singing princess i believe - but i haven't seen this disney movie as my kids are either too old to be bothered or too young to know what a tv is yet, let alone a movie). as the irish channels aren't showing it live (we have to wait til monday night our time), ill have to rely on middle of the night phone calls and youtube the next morning... id obviously love to see them win. its a great song at the end of the day and it works so, so well in the movie. i know that there is a huge amount of good will out there amongst folks from around the globe and thanks very much for all your messages of support and good vibes. lets see what the week ahead brings. its all good whichever way it falls...

so, here is the other tour orientated news. (i know for purists that this is a frames newsletter, but the frames won't be in action too much this year as a band - its very ss heavy for obvious reasons. we have however decided to all get together for the telluride blue grass festival in colorado as it just sounds an amazing place to have a gig. details below...)

now - in nyc, oakland and chicago they are going to get a fanbase pre-sale together and reserve the best seats for those who've been around a while, as it were. please check our message board on the frames.ie site and donal will put a sticky up on what the password and the links are for those participating venues, hopefully within the next 24/48 hours. also - please just check your local places for when the tix go on sale for the other shows. they've only just been confirmed and i would say it will be this coming week when they actually go on sale. the rooms are getting bigger as you can probably see - but the demand is high - so, if you dont want to be left flapping in the wind - get your tickets early...
