MFNW show!

AAAAND here’s the news we’ve been waiting to share: Just Lions is playing Mississippi Studios on 8/21 as part of MFNW!!! Playing with the ever-charming Thanks.

If you already have your wristband you can get in with that, otherwise there are individual show tickets available here: https://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/885575?utm_source=os

Grab one quick though, last time we played with Thanks at Mississippi it sold out!

So after a hot evening of rad shows at the waterfront Friday, come cool down with that sweet A.C., maybe a couple big-kids-only beverages, and some CHILL jams from some ULTRA CHILL homies. Needless to say…should be pretty cool. Starts a little later so you can get there after Foster the People. Doors at 9pm, show at 10pm.

everybodychillStoked to play with our buds Thanks again! Check out their killer new PDX Pop Now! track, “bad tattoos”:

We’ve also added a free, all-ages show in Troutdale, OR, if you’re up for a short drive. Show is Saturday, July 18th. It’s outside, so wear a hat or something? Things will be going down at Glen Otto Park, and we’re playing from noon to 1pm. (might catch some new and old songs!)

 

Still looking at the picture. It’s FOREVER. (very much hope it’s real).

 

We’ll announce more stuff as it happens. And hopefully announce that we’ll be announcing things soon.

See you at a show!

Summer Vacation!

Hi everybody!

drnick

Sorry for the short post. Been sick/busy being awesome. (Drummer Andy is in Brazil!). We’ll have news and stuff to share soon, but for now there’s lots of content out there to devour.

While you’re waiting, enjoy this summer-themed Harry Potter quiz:

let us know what your results are!

P.S. Don’t crash your car into Sinbad’s car the second you start summer vacation!

April is for Turtles

Hey best friends,

Doug Fir show was a SMASHING success! …in that I smashed my finger then got smashed afterwards, playing super smash brothers while listening to smashing pumpkins doing covers of smashmouth. (Hey now!).

Processed with VSCOcam with p5 preset

So even if none of those things happened, it was a fun show and we love all of you who made Tuesday night Adventure Night™. Awesome sets from new buds Bike Thief and Small Skies. Huge thanks to Eric Skelton at Vortex Music Mag for letting us steal his cell phone pictures.

10629321_977776915589020_6075096999543398930_oReally excited to play Bunk Bar this Saturday (4/11) with mega smooth Rio Grands and The Minders! I haven’t seen the Minders yet, but they opened for Elliott Smith a long time ago and I will be forever jealous/in awe of them.

After that Adam Sweeney (The Breaking/Just Lions bassist) and I will be doing a quick trip to Washington to play a solo show in Doe Bay.

The NEXT weekend (4.25) the full crew heads to Olympia for another house show! All-ages. If I survive all the fun in April we’re all getting motorcycles. Not optional. Just get one.

Love you all, and love YOU especially (you know I’m talking to you).

Back at the Doug Fir 3.24

Hey Fambly,

Getting all geared up for Doug Fir on 3.24! Can’t wait to share our brand new song with you. Probably calling it “Bad Haircut” but we’re artsy and shit changes, so be cool about it. Make sure you get there on time to catch Small Skies dougfir3.24.15(formerly Stepkid), then stick around after us for Bike Thief! Huge thanks to 94/7 KNRK for playing our song and promoting the show!

Click here to buy a ticket.

Click the Showdeer poster (left) to RSVP on Facebook.

Just added an ALL-AGES house show to May. When all the good venues close, make your own! (srsly haus showz r dope–let us play @ urs). More details soon.

Still plugging away in the studio. Hoping to have something to share fairly soon. Thanks for waiting patiently. We ain’t rich kids.

Also recently had our song “Too Close?” played at half-time of the Blazers game. Grew up watching them, so it was kind of a huge deal for me/us. Love the local love from PTB crew. (Thanks Todd!).

Keep being rad and we’ll all hang out soon!

Here’s what we’ve been up to:

We recently played our favorite Portland venue, Mississippi Studios with the wonderful Thanks and Us Lights! (1.24.15). Both bands put on super rad sets to the sold-out crowd. Huge thanks (no pun intended) to the intensely cool folks at XRAY.fm for sponsoring/hanging out! The show also got a really great write-up from John at Vortex music magazine!

Check out what Vortex had to say, and see some photos from the night here.

The homie Tom Chamberlain got some really great shots of the night. Head to his site and check them out. Dude is talented!

We ranked pretty high on the Portland Deli Magazine Poll for emerging artists of 2014, which was flattering and awesome!

We’ll be taking a short break to record and get some new songs ready for our show at Doug Fir 3.24.15. with Bike Thief and Small Skies. See you soon! Until then, be on the lookout for more updates on new songs, shows, and new songs about shows.

Thanks!

-Chandler
