And we’re back. Thank you for your patience.
We are excited to be back full Wire Frames mode, writing, recording, and booking shows. Curtis has moved from St. Louis to Iowa City, and Ethan is in Ames attending Iowa State University. The closer proximity will make it much easier to play shows, as well as actually play music in the same room, which is always helpful when attempting to play musician. We fully endorse role-playing.
We will be brushing off the cobwebs on September 24, at Vaudeville Mews in Des Moines with our good friends Lake of Fat Kids and What About Bruce?. Check the Live page for full info.
There will also be a new jingly tune available in the next couple months. ’Tis fully written and just needs to be properly recorded. There are at least two hints in that paragraph as to a date/subject. Winky emoticon.
We’re excited to be back, and hope your giblets are jiggling too.
The Wire Frames
Here’s a quick recap of the Joyful in Hope benefit we took part in: Acres of Ability – Joyful in Hope.
Have you found yourself wondering where that little Iowa band you loved so dearly has gone? Maybe you’ve tried to move on, but you still have these feelings, a certain longing that won’t go away. You miss them.
Well, there’s good new and there’s bad news. The good news is we’re still a band and we have a ton of new material in various stages of completion, all awaiting your longing ears. The bad news is that it is currently very difficult to book shows because Curtis doesn’t know which state he will be living in in the next few months.
Usually venues book shows a few months in advance, and because of Curtis’ circumstances we can’t book shows in good faith that we will be able to play them, and we want to avoid canceling if at all possible. This will hopefully be resolved by the end of the summer. We’ll keep you updated on new shows and music as soon as we have more information on dates.
Thank you for your patience,
The Wire Frames
Iron-On Diffraction Shirt
Has that hyphen-heavy title got you excited? We’re selling 50 t-shirts with our Diffraction logo using iron-on transfer paper. Each one is hand made, so no two will be exactly alike. They are available now on our Bandcamp site for $13 (free shipping in continental US). Once these
50 46 are gone we will create a new design for another limited edition shirt.
Get ‘em while the gettin’s good!
My wireless contract is almost up and I’m looking at new phones/plans. I was transferring all of my photos to my computer and thought I’d share some of my favorites. They pretty much fit into three categories: Random Things I See Around Ames or St. Louis, Things Ethan Does To Amuse Me, and Animals (A Majority of Which Are Dead). I don’t know what the deal is with the birds; don’t ask.
These were all taken on an HTC Incredible, which has an 8.0 megapixel camera and autofocus. None of the photos have been edited other than for size.
