so long, goodbye, good night

Yes, it is true - the writing is on the wall. It is time for us to part ways... to end this ride on a high note.

We've accomplished enough to make us happy: we've connected with people in 12 states on 2 coasts, many many cities and a thousand tiny bars & cafes. We are proud to have shared the stage with some truely amazing musicians. We've spoken for those who couldn't speak, we've made you laugh, dance, cry and sing along. We truely hope you've had as much fun as we've had.

We've started a scrapbook of Estereo's adventures over the last few years. Feel free to send me any pics you'd like to contribute, and how we should credit you!


That's right... we are coming back through Sacramento next week. If you like, please feel free to take this flyer and post it where you can (just not on city property - poles, utility boxes etc).

Modesto on Tuesday was interesting. It was just Sonny, Julie and I... so we were trying to play with our dynamics more, which is hard to do in a club with a MegaSuperProSoundSystem 2000. Thanks for having us!

Tonight is Sacramento! We're excited to come back and show ya'll where we've been and where we're headed. Feel free to pick up this week's News & Review; we're the music pick of the week!

Here's the flyer. Feel free to bring a friend!
