Default Please watch "Conan O'Brien" on Thurs. Nov. 8!

WHY, you ask?

'Cause my daughter's boyfriend's band (Matthew is the bass player) are gonna' be the musical guests that night!

This is pretty big stuff for us, as they also currently have a hit album on the "Billboard Top 200" that's been hangin' in there since it's release on Sept. 18! This is their 3rd album (CD), and Ric Ocasek ("The Cars") produced some of the songs! About 6mo. ago they signed a new record contract with Sony/Columbia Records that will give them a LOT of exposure!

The guys just came back about a week or so ago from touring England, Scotland, and Ireland, and will be playing this weekend in a "Voodoo" tour in New Orleans with bands such as The Smashing Pumpkins, Rage Against The Machine, Fall Out Boy, and lots of other GREAT bands!

The band has been together for about 8 years and has worked VERY hard to get where they are - it 'ain't an easy road!

So, PLEASE mark your calendars (or ship's log!) and drink an extra cup of coffee that night! It's "different" music and the guys REALLY put on a GREAT show!

I'll be driving down to Norfolk on Nov. 6 to see them when they play there!

Oh - the band is "MOTION CITY SOUNDTRACK"!

THANKS for your support and check their schedule to see when they're coming to a town near YOU!

I played bass many years ago in a band, all I can say is that you best keep your daughter away from him

Hey, Bruce... Where are the MP3's so that we can get a sample of their music sounds like? If you know of a link to MP3's (or even better, FLAC files) let us know.

HA! I don't worry - although they've been going together for 8+ YEARS, they don't get to see each other too often. Kristen (my daughter) lives and works in MEXICO, and the band is based out of MINNEAPOLIS!

Based on THAT comment, I have "instructed" my daughter (via e-mail) to break off the relationship - effective, IMMEDIATELY!

I don't think you've turned out too bad, Garret - based on the reports I've recieved from the CIA, FBI, NSA, and the Marie Osmond Fan Club!

Since I am NOT versed in the high-tech stuff of "MP3's", "iPods", etc., not sure where to direct you?

THIS may work:

http://www.epitaph.com/artists/album/523

OR, you may try the Epitaph Records website:

http://www.epitaph.com

The CD's (all 3 of them) are in Wal-Mart, Target, and Best Buy.

Thanks for the interest!

We'll be sure to watch for them on the show!!!! SO COOL!!!

I get excited for you (and them) because we've got ties to the group "Bowling for Soup" so we know about their hard work, dedication, determination, etc.... and NO - it ain't easy!!

Thanks for keepin' us updated on their progress. Tell them that FJ says, "Keep up the great work!!" and CONGRATS!!!

Thanks for your support, Jane - and I hope you get to see them on TV!

I've seen "Bowling For Soup"s CDs in all the big stores, but not sure if I've heard/seen them on the radio or TV yet? A lot of this "alternative"-type music doesn't get much air time around here, but I think that's changing.

"Matt" has been with the band about 4-5 years now and does a lot of the harmony with Justin (lead singer). He has a LOT of support for his work and seeking his "dream" from his family and friends and US back here!!!!!!!!!!

Hope you enjoy them!

Regards,

jbigwater & kingair,

THANKS for your support and hope you get to see them!

UNFORTUNATELY, with the "writer's strike" possibly starting tomorrow, we MAY be in for RERUNS, instead of "live" TV this week - maybe longer?

Thus, MCS may NOT end up on Conan on Thursday!

I HOPE the strike gets settled beFORE then - it would be a shame for the guys to get "bumped" - not sure WHEN they may get another chance to be on there?

They DID play on Conan on 8/17/05 and on Jimmy Kimmel Live on 1/19/06 - I've got those 2 shows on VCR!

I'll "bump" this back up as Thursday gets closer.

Regards,
