Heart us on TheSixtyOne

To build up the anticipation for our CD release show on Weds March 17 (less than a week away!), we will be releasing one song from the upcoming Stay Awake album each day on TheSixtyOne, a “music discovery engine.” Please check out Wrong Side of Dawn’s page on T61, and vote up the first song from Stay Awake that we’ve uploaded, Running Scared!

I must admit, one reason we are doing this is because of my curiosity as to whether this is still a popular website. We had a nice experience releasing The Grinder’s Tale 3P on T61 this summer, but since then there has been a massive site overhaul which made the site visually stunning but reduced usability in the eyes of many of its users, resulting in a bit of a user revolt. If our songs can’t get as much attention now as they did this summer… well, the 3 songs on the 3P are almost exactly the same as 3 of the songs on the album! So if you still like TheSixtyOne, vote up our songs to show your continued love 😉

UPDATE: 2nd song on T61: Out of Time.

CD release show Weds March 17 at the Whiskey Bar in Hoboken

Inside The Whiskey Bar, Hoboken

There have been some delays, but Wrong Side of Dawn’s full-length album “Stay Awake” will finally be on sale for the first time on St. Patrick’s Day (Wednesday, March 17th) at the Whiskey Bar in Hoboken.

The Bad Side of Down. That's right, these feathers just don't give a fuck.
The Bad Side of Down. That's right, these feathers just don't give a fuck.

Music should start at 9pm; our set should start at 10pm and last for 45 minutes. Cover is $5. Must be 21 to enter. Don’t believe the Whiskey Bar’s online calendar (http://www.whiskey-bar.com/calendar.htm), which currently lists “Bad Side of Down,” our evil twins in an alternate reality, as performing at 10:00. We’re scheduled for that spot. And if we really were a bad side of down, they wouldn’t have booked us.

Come out to grab a pint or two or twelve for St. Paddy’s Day, hear original music, and be one of the first to own the next big album of the millennium! Our consolations to those who will be unable to make it because they are not in the same hemisphere as Hoboken or are under 21. But even if you aren’t in New Jersey/New York, you can still be a part of the event in your own lame little way. As of our set, our album will be available to the world online! Be sure to check back for details when the date gets closer.

But wait, there’s more! Kickin’ the Mustard, featuring Brian’s fellow North Brunswick legends James Hsu, Wayne Karolevich, Megan Algeo, Matt Astel, and Noah Gordon, will be on right after WSoD. This guarantees that the music will never stop! Or maybe it will stop at midnight, as scheduled. Maybe somebody claiming to be “Bad Side of Down” will show up, and a good old Irish bar brawl will ensue. In any case, you don’t want to miss it.

(Did anyone else giggle at the phrase “unable to make it”? I did, just a little.)

Line-up for this show:
Nelson Pavlosky – Rhythm guitar, vocals
Brian Rose – Lead guitar, vocals
Andres Gonzalez – Bass guitar
Eric Serviss – Drums
Steven Stratvert – Piano
Katie Richards – Backing vocals, percussion
