PAINT BRANCH 2014.
Deep thanks to everyone who listened to our music in 2013. We had a wonderful year playing these songs for you and we were grateful to be included on the year-end lists from Washington City Paper and DCist.
Our debut album, “I Wanna Live,” is still available on Bandcamp and is expected back from the vinyl factory any second now. Meantime, Cricket Cemetery might still have a few copies available on cassette. Give them a shout. 
And finally, we’re playing an acoustic show as a duo in the very same room where we first performed soon-to-be-Paint-Branch songs together two winters back. We hope to play some new tunes at this upcoming gig, but until then, here’s the info: 
Friday, February 7 - Washington D.C. - w/ Walking Sticks -  Smithsonian American Art Museum (8th and F St. N.W.) - 6 p.m. - Free - All ages. Click here for more information.
Hope to see you there.

Thanks to everyone who squeezed into Red Onion Records on Saturday night to listen to us sing our songs. (And a big, huge thank you to Red Onion for hosting, too.) If you missed it, here’s video of the song “Vanishing Act.”

Meantime, “I Wanna Live” is now on Spotify. Go listen.
