Thanks for a fun night!

Just want to say thanks to everyone who came out to the Sugartown 10th Anniversary Tribute show at the Tritone on Saturday night! The show sold out, and folks had to be turned away, so we’re sorry if you didn’t get to make it in. It was super fun paying tribute to the great Cyndi Lauper, and we had a blast listening to everyone’s performances (Lilliput, Jefferson Airplane, B-52’s, the Go-gos, and many more.)

Here is a clip of us doing “She-bop” (my favorite song when I was 8 years old – totally did not know what she was singing about back then!)



Also – if you want to see some photos from the show (and a super nice shout-out to us and the other great bands) check out today’s Critical Mass.

Happy Holidays from Betty!

Hi Everyone!

Long time no talk. We have been putting all of the final bells and whistles on our upcoming full-length CD, so we have been a little MIA. But last night we stopped by World Cafe Live for the Philly Rising Open Mic and played our song “Walk of Shame.”  To our delight and surprise we were chosen as the winner for the week (!!!) and will be coming back for the CREAM: Best of Philly Rising event in January.  Make sure to come cheer us on for that one, so we can try to make it to the annual CREAM of the CREAM showcase that features all of the monthly winners.

So here is a little holiday cheer from Betty…we hope you have a happy, drunken, lovely Christmas/Kwanzaa/New Year/random day off from work, and we will see you (and you will hear us) in 2011!

Wrightstown Tomorrow!

Hey there. Long time no see!

Mike and Katie are going to be playing a special acoustic set at the Wrightstown Farmers Market tomorrow (Saturday, 10/16) from 10am to 12:30pm. Make sure you come out as we will be playing all of our songs both old and brand new!  I am sure the market will have some awesome fall treats available for purchase such as pumpkins and other funny looking gourds.

We are putting some final backing vocals on the album this week, and then the mixing and mastering starts.  The release is near.

This guy is pumped.
