A show in Laugarnestangi
We are thrilled to announce that we´ll be implementing our Karolina fund, wwwkarolinafund.com, pledge!!! We´ll be putting up a show, and performing, at the amazing, wonky, one-of-a-kind villa and fairy-tail world of the eccentric Icelandic filmmaker Hrafn Gunnlaugsson. We can not wait to perform at this beautiful place, overlooking the see, the mountains and the city of Reykjavík.
The event will start at 17.00 and go on throughout the night, with the bands Cheek Mountain Thief, Caterpillarmen, DJ Flugvél og Geimskip and us. We´ll be offering some drink and BBQ some hot dogs for the crew! YEAH!!!
So be there. This is the once in a lifetime opportunity! Do not miss it! :)

An 4 tunes digital EP release
Is coming up before airwaves, or in October this year. The 4 songs featured are the B-side of our babuskha usb album, so it will be even more interesting to see and get reactions from the audience for these new 4 wonky tunes....... ;)
