Whew...it's been a while since we have put some notes out for you... must be the weather. It was warm the last entry in August 11' and unseasonable warm now in April 12'. Good weather, good vibes, time for some updates.

We will start this year off right with a IPO Festival / Ginger Records showcase at the Redline Tap, April 21st @ 8 pm. The smooth retro pop of Swinger will kick it off. Followed by the classically smart, in your face pop/rock of The Webstirs then on to yours truly. Weekend Vinyl will finish you off with a smile on your face....:)

We will have lots to come this year, including a show at Friendly Tap in Oak Park (owned by good friend Rob from The Yellowhammers). We are also looking at putting on our own little party at Nevins in Evanston so stay tuned for that. Plus we will have plenty of little shows here and there, with the possible return to S.P.A.C.E and Martyrs......

Gonna be a good year for some old and new WEEKEND VINYL !!

I guess we should have been out there strut'n our stuff at some of the summer festivals and outdoor venues but I think we all were cool just hanging with the family...

We will be doing one end of the summer show on August 27th so if you are around the Libertyville area come check us out at their North Shore Wine, Beer, Cigar and Food Festival. http://www.northshorewinebeerfest.com/Event_Info.html

Don't worry, we will be energized and ready for some fun in the fall. Check out the calender page for the new dates.


Press Machine is a roll'n. Check out current and future articles on us in the ol' B/W print. The press page is a good place to start!

Thanks to everyone who braved the wet and nasty weather to see a great show at The Abbey Pub last night. Some fantastic pop bands showcased their talents. Some classic sounds from Swinger and Watershed and This Magazine is Haunted. Power and pop from  Archie Powell & The Exports, Magatha Trysty and Suzy Brack & The New Jack Lords. Good stuff! And of course ourselves, the new editions....I think we made a good impression. At least it sounded that way up on stage. I think we were all feeling pretty amped so we just got up there and blasted through those tunes with energy and heads up playing. Thanks to the sound engineer without whom we (and everyone else for that matter) would suck. Believe it or not that was our first live show as Weekend Vinyl.
