Here’s a video featuring footage of Dan Mariska and The Boys Choir during the week we (See Through Dresses) spent with the Minneappolis band on our Midwest mini-tour last month. You can listen to Bummer Songs from Dan Mariska and The Boys Choir here: danmariska.bandcamp.com

It was so much fun sharing the stage and hanging out with these guys. Some of our favorite memories: pulling into St. Joe and feeling threatened by a group of thirteen-year-old boys with golf clubs, wondering what was on fire later that night, taking shots of Malort at Laura’s in KC, buying records at Mills, Zeebeedee’s, and Love Garden, and watching The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Wish it could have lasted much longer.

We heart you guys too. Thanks so much!!!!

So: I’m going to be playing guitar for the Crash Bandits on their trip to SXSW coming up in march (sweet). While I’m down there it’d be cool to play a solo show or two. If anyone has any leads for a coffee shop, record store, bookshop, house, or closet that might have me please let me know! We’ve also tossed around the idea of having the Bandits back me up for a set or something as well. So that’s also a possibility… Please email dan@danmariska.com with any ideas. Thanks!
