Labor Day Weekend at Sidewalk Cafe

Last Sunday, our EP was shared on a blog that provides links to free, (legal,) downloads of music. Yay! You can check that out here.

In other news, we are once again playing at Sidewalk Cafe in NYC (providing the lower east side stays safe from the hurricane. Sidewalk is just on the border of an evacuation zone!)

The show will be Sunday, September 4th, the day before labor day, so we know you all have off the next day and will be able to come out. Plus! We're not even playing that late, 9:30pm. And! We have a new song to share with you.

Here's the event link on facebook.

Hope to see you there! :)

Elephant featured on Swedish blog

In honor of "Elephant" being linked on a Swedish blog, here is a blog post dedicated to the song!

To the best of my knowledge, this is the FIRST time we have ever publicly shared the lyrics. Lyrics to the other 5 songs on our EP to follow...

"I think I'll have a cigarette,"
she said,
"I've only had a few today."
"There's time to be illiterate,"
he said,
"I've read a few books in my day."
It's bigger than an elephant,
these thoughts of breaking down and losing ground.
The devil knows he's heaven sent
when he releases greed into the heart of the world.

We'll sit and we'll think
on this cold pavement ground.
Wrapped in the warmth of our flannel nightgowns.
One day we'll be lost,
but it won't be now.
So we'll be
whatever we are when we're first found.

La la la la la la la...

"I think I'll have a beer... or four,"
he said,
"I think I'll drink 'til I feel no more..."
She dances wild, she dances for
strangers she knows in her dreams,
that she'll never meet in the world.

We'll sit and we'll think
on this cold pavement ground.
Wrapped in the warmth of our flannel nightgowns.
One day we'll be lost,
but it won't be now.
So we'll be
whatever we are when we're first found.

La la la la la la la...

The link to the Swedish blog is here-
According to google translation, they've described us as "Stomp and gear hunting folk rock from New York." Can't say I really understand what that means, but it sounds pretty bad-ass. (Can anyone provide a more accurate translation?)

We've also switched the order on our bandcamp to have Elephant play first!

Elephant, after all, is a song about Fall (among other things,) and the crisp breeze of Autumn has certainly been showing it's presence these past few days.

Goodnight Blue Thursday

Just home from our Thursday night set at Goodbye Blue Monday.

Aside from one starving audience member being denied the grilled cheese
special (apparently out of spite), the show went well.

Ben couldn't join us, but John managed to morph into something between
himself and Ben, singing and serenading us all with his upright bass.

We also introduced a new song, Walnut Tree, written by Lena some time
ago and unearthed recently.

Finally, a big thanks for the audience participation (you know who you are).
Its good to have such talented accompaniment.

Such and such.

1. Saturday's show at the Sidewalk was... you should've been there.

2. The final tracks of our E.P. are going to be emailed to us tomorrow! Soon they will be made available to our fan-mily.

3. Newburgh Restoration, an amazing site run by Cher Vick, has added Dandy Lions to its arts and culture section. Check out the site to learn more about Newburgh's current, and historic, situation and to see why it's such a cool place to be.

4. Hyena (a.k.a. Colby Nathan's band) has recently released their first full-length album... on vinyl! It sounds delicious. If you haven't heard Colby's music, you can check it out here.

Oh yes, the E.P. is...

...almost done!

We even had a listening party at De Leo Manor just last week.

Our drummer and producer, Ben Goldstein, is in the final throes of mixing our debut record. The E.P. features three of our oldest songs and three of our newest. Be prepared for the release party invite! It has been years in the making.

Dandy Lions have been congregating in the basement of the music building at Purchase college this past week to practice for our next


this Saturday at the Sidewalk Cafe! Click here to r.s.v.p on facebook, or here to view Sidewalk's calendar. We're ready to play songs that are rarely heard, as well as all six from the upcoming record, with the full band! You'll see Lena on accordion, Ben on percussion and showing off some new choreography, John Feliciano dual-wielding the upright and electric bass, and Dante playing an unexpected instrument. We play at 8pm, just to give us plenty of time to drink with you afterwards.

Friday night we'd like to invite you to two of our great friends' senior recitals at SUNY Purchase. Selena Coburn and Colby Nathan. Coincidentally both shows will feature some Dandy Lion sounds...
We hope to see you there!
