A Good Day For Pela

Reason #1

The launch of online TV show Dinner with the Band. Watch the band cook with Sam Mason and play three songs, "Waiting on the Stairs", "Lost to the Lonesome", and "Philadelphia." Embedding is not yet available, so you have to click on those links to check out the videos.

Reason #2

WOXY is sponsoring their tour! Via The Futurist:

WOXY.com and Pela are stoked to be teaming up for Pela’s upcoming tour. Not only will we be giving away loads of goodies, but Pela will also be leaving audio entries from the road right here on The Futurist! See below for the nitty gritty…

Five years in the making, Pela are finally hitting every wayward town and truckstop in promotion of their full-length debut, Anytown Graffiti. As everyone knows, 5 years is a long time for an indie band to make a few friends, and thankfully, WOXY.com has been an ardent Pela supporter since day zero. Together, Pela and WOXY.com present to you an All-American band’s All-American journey from May 30 - June 17.

Expect drunken tales of drunken nights, sightseeing tips, and high-quality investigative reporting from the latest rock&roll crime scenes across America. CD’s, tickets, T-shirts and buttons will be given away on every stop of the tour. Tune in or feed in at WOXY.com

This week we will be giving away goods for the following tour dates. To qualify, simply leave us your favorite Pela song with a one sentence explanation. Make it short but sweet. Also, make sure you can use the tickets for the San Fransisco show and the Portland show. Also some nice merch is available for the LA gig. Winners for the San Fransisco show will be announced that day, so all entries will need to be in the comments by early Thursday morning, 10am EST.

Have I mentioned yet how much I like Anytown Graffiti? I don't think I have. Well I do. A lot. And speaking of WOXY, they have some great bands coming into their lounge:

6/7 Viva La Foxx 4:00pm
6/13 Sam Champion 3:00pm
6/26 Palomar 3:30pm
7/20 Dirty On Purpose 1:30pm
7/25 Ra Ra Riot 4:00pm
8/3 Wussy 3:00pm

To the best of my knowledge, it will be the 2nd (and possibly third?) time that each of these bands, except for Palomar, have performed in the lounge. Check out the archives to listen to the previous performances.
