Here Comes The NEW VIDEO!  

Yes, we've talked about it.  And talked about it.  And now it's here.  Our new record comes out next week (in fact I've heard that there may be a few copies down at The Fetus in Minneapolis even now).  To herald the imminent release we would like to share this video for the delightful song by Robyn, Call Your Girlfriend (resexed by us to be "Call Your Boyfriend").  Andrea Swensson from The Current gives you a little context in her blog.  If you want to add excitement post a comment on Andrea's blog saying... whatever!  Or just give the video a lookity.

The Holiday Show Plans: Prepare for the show with these tips from the band!

Just a quick heads up people: we are going to Lutsen for our annual post Thanksgiving party Friday!  That is THIS FRIDAY.  This is a free wheeling version of our holiday show with a generous dollop of whatever else is on our mind.  There are ski runs open, there is time for frolicking in the chalet and sing alongs with the assembled musical stars who will travel up with us.  All in all: good fun.  Papa Charlies at Lutsen.  Make your plans NOW!

We're getting all set for the big Holiday Show at The Fitzgerald December 7--9.  How are we doing it?  With a training regimen involving early egg nog imbibing, toddy tippling and wassail quaffing.  It's heavy work, but at the end of the night it will be WE who are the last ones standing.

For those of you who didn't already nab your tickets, well, there are still a few left for Friday and Saturday, a very precious few, and considerably more at last report remaining for Sunday's matinee.  Don't delay, though.  The shows will sell out.

Now then, to enhance your experience at The Fitzgerald we have a few simple ideas:

1) Watch this movie we made with the incredibly talented animator and director Bret Farley.

2) Watch this incredibly awesome version of Snow Days on the first day it snows, shot and edited by the prodigiously talented film maker to the stars, Dan Huiting.

3) Listen to the alternately mystical and silly strains of our last year's Christmas CD and buy one or several for your family stockings.

4) Use this time to dance about your living your living room while this is playing at top volume in your house.  Let the neighbors know how you like to shake it. It's our wholly original Christmas SMASH! 

5) Finally, begin a pre-party routine yourself, so at the end of the night when all the glitter has fallen and the fake snow has been combed from Munson's moustache you can march steadily to your taxi cab and zoom off into the night, fully prepared for the Holiday Season!   This is a reliably awesome way to slip into the mood.

Thank you!

Holiday Show General On Sale Is Tuesday October 23!

Our big holiday show happens December 7--9 this year.  We're super excited for it, as we are every year.  Now that we've played our last public performance prior to the holiday show we can really start to focus in earnest on our planning, engraving our invitations and etc.  And we want to be sure that you know where to go and what to do to get tickets.

So here it is: The Fitzgerald Box Office is in downtown Saint Paul, on Exchange St.  There's a giant mural of F. Scott Fitzgerald on the rear of the building.  The ticket agents will be happy to accommodate you in person.  But if you so desire you could also use your telephone to call them: 651-290-1200.  

For those who prefer to buy their tickets from the privacy of their own computer, we have that covered too, though there is a fee from ticketmaster for that convenience.

We can't wait for the show and hope to see you all there!
