Zanzibar has a boatload of new show announcements for 2008 ….
First up we'll be playing at the Cavern in Dallas on Wed, January 16 with Six Organs of Admittance and Dust Congress. Tix are $10 advance. Joining us for this show will be the notorious SUBkommander, Mike Maxwell.
Then a show at the F6 Gallery in Arlington on Saturday, January 26 as part of a multimedia showcase titled "That's Not Art." .
We've also been invited to play part of the Melodica Fest Block Party at Expo Park (somewhere in the hood, Sloppyworld being the center of the event) on Fri or Sat, Feb. 22 or 23. Fest headliners include Sonic Boom/Spectrum, Silver Apples, Light Bright Highway, Sub Oslo and many more.
And finally (for now) we're playing Austin again during SXSW on Saturday, March 15 as part of this year's installment of the Strategies of Beauty fest at the Chain Drive. Confirmations so far include Shiny Around the Edges and Benko with many more to be named.
By then we hope to soon have two new full-length or long EP releases for your ears, one epic power drone piece titled BROWN DWARF featuring Josh McWhirter on viola, and one ethereal/organic odyssey titled VANADIUM DREAM, featuring SUBkommander Mike on live electronics. Both are tentatively scheduled for release on MAYYRH Records in March.
