Simple Pleasures

4 quarters = 1 Dr Pepper from the soda machine (with secret beer option!) at the rehearsal studio where my band practices.

Going to band practice makes me realize that I have a BAND to PRACTICE with… and this makes me insanely grateful and giddy.

Very excited for the now and the later. 🙂

Houseparty Hootenanny Potluck – Thurs Oct 1st

You may have heard we recently made a new EP! WE DID!

You may have heard we recently took a PLAY and the BAND to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland! Well, WE DID!

You may have NOT heard the Evangenitals play live in the US recently! That’s because WE HAVEN’T!!!

So on THURSDAY OCTOBER 1st we’re having a HOOTENANNY POTLUCK to celebrate!

We’ll fill your ear holes with music & stories and your eyeballs with smiles & slide shows from our UK travels! You can pick up the new EP and get filled up with Evangenital joy. Good deal, eh?

Bring a dish, we’ll bring the cheap wine & beer for a donation bar (tohelp us recoup some more travel expenses!), and together we can get reacquainted under the stars.

On the musical platter… we will put an end to our long separation from are darling accordion player Ari DeSano by enjoying the incredible tunes of ODIOUS ARI & THE SYPHILITIC SYCOPHANTS from 8-9pm.

Then the Evangenitals shall croon from 9-10pm!! At last, at last!

It’s all going down at our Sancho’s… I mean…. actor Chris Goodson’s awesome home (with terraced backyard and outdoor stage!) located at:

611 Isabel Street
Los Angeles, CA 90065

7:30pm – 10:30pm

Bring a dish, or just bring your sweet self!!!

RSVP’s are welcome but not required. Just come, come, COME N’ GET IT!!!

Improbable Perversion

While eating a handful of small, peeled carrots I noticed a slight slimy and tart residue on one of the morsels. My first (and quite surprising) though was a mildly panicked “Semen?!”

The improbability of this was immense, as I am a woman living alone and cannot imagine the circumstances in which one could have feasibly ejaculated on my bagged carrots.

The fact that it was my first thought disturbed me. Later I found it amusing. “First thought, best thought.”

lonely town

I’m sitting in this truck stop city somewhere in Portland, Oregon. The place is called “jubitz” and it’s a whole town in itself… truck stop, country music venue & dance hall, mini-mall with an arcade, food court, movie theater, a restaurant, hotel… all in a small corner of nowhere, it seems.

Played a show with Cash’d Out here tonight and all was well until I was walking through the hallway and got slammed with a profound wall of sadness that had the peculiar flavor of being NOT MINE. I checked my heart and soul pockets and sure enough, I’m doing fine. No profound loneliness, no deep melancholy… not today… so I’ve been roving the halls trying to figure out exactly where the “hot spots” are… what residents, current and/or ghostly, are emitting this powerful mood?

I’ve found the spot. THE spot where the feeling is for sure most intense. And I’m sitting in it. Soaking it up. I think I feel a song coming on. 🙂

BACK in the US. New EP of OURS.

We made it! 3 weeks in the UK… 7 brave souls… approximately 30 shows later… and we’re BACK! Hello America!!! We can’t thank you enough for the love and support that carried us overseas. So we’ll just keep thanking you every chance we get. Thank you!

It’s all still a bit of a blur. We’re catching our breath, sorting our photos, and getting ready to burst back onto the scene… or rather, its more of a cheeky jig. We had an amazing adventure over there in Scotland and we’ve got a ton of stories to share. We’ll dish ’em out gently. One at a time.

For now, first things first:

Just DAYS before we left town, our new EP was printed! Seven tracks of solid gold recorded at Del Boca Vista Studio in South Pasadena with Tracy Chisholm. It’s a real beauty. A hit in the United Kingdom already! And now YOU can have one, too.

PAYPAL or MAIL us just $12, and we’ll mail you a copy of the new EP. How’s that for an lovely exchange? Simple as Pi. 😉

You can PAYPAL 12$ to: info@evangenitals.com

Or MAIL 12$ to:
The Evangenitals (yes, you can make a check out to the Evangenitals!)
PO Box 70318
Pasadena, CA 91107

Do that, and we’ll send you the shiny new EP with a sleek Evangenitals Ultra Crest eco-friendly cover, no questions asked! Except for your mailing address. We’ll need that.

Stay tuned for upcoming shows and other exciting news. We’ve got some good buns in the oven.

In the meantime, there’s already a video on Facebook (the first of many to come!) from our show in London at The Sheep Walk for your viewing pleasure:

So much love,
Juli & the Evangenitals
