We Were Pirates Song on This American Life….

This weekend, This American Life played one of the songs from the Dear Mr. Watterson Soundtrack called, ‘A Strange Experience,’ on Episode 512: House Rules. You can stream the episode on the This American Life website or on Soundcloud (It plays at the 4:21 mark of the Prologue). I’m a huge fan of the show and am honored that they used one of my songs…especially on such an important episode that deals with the history of the Fair Housing laws (learn more at ProPublica). I would highly recommend checking out the episode.

And if you like the song, you can find it on iTunes or Bandcamp.

We’re Playing a Rock-N-Romp Set in DC on Saturday!

We Were Pirates DC Band Rock-n-Romp

Within the past year, everybody I know has started having kids (including sometimes WWP guitarist Gabe Fry. Shouts out to Ambrose!). This is not hyperbole. Everyone. So, if I know you, you have kids now. That’s just how this works. I don’t really understand it myself, but I think it has something to do with science.

Anyway, this is great timing, because Rock-n-Romp DC recently started back up after some time off and we’re playing their next show. It’ll be this Saturday at the DC Meet Market with Your Pal Pete. Pete starts at noon and we play at 2pm. We’ve played a couple of RnR shows in the past and they’ve always been a blast. So, come hang out and bring that happy family of yours!

‘Settle Down’ in Rapture-Palooza….

We Were Pirates Settle Down in Rapture-palooza

Hi friends,

A new movie opened this weekend called Rapture-Palooza and they play ‘Settle Down’ in a scene where Anna Kendrick and John Francis Daley are bowling. So that’s cool. Some of my favorite hilarious people are in it. Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry, Ken Jeong, Rob Huebel…

Anyway, it’s about the rapture and it’s in some theaters and on iTunes on demand. So, go watch an adult Sam Weir make out with Anna Kendrick while Settle Down serenades them ever so sweetly.

Oh and you can get ‘Settle Down’ on iTunes or Bandcamp. Or order ‘Cutting Ties‘ (the record it’s on) here.

We’re Playing a Show with Ola Podrida!

Hey dudes and chicks,

Kate and I are playing an acoustic show this Tuesday with Ola Podrida. We’re pretty excited. In addition to the fact that they’re great, David Wingo, the frontman, is a phenomenal film score composer. He has done most of David Gordon Green’s films and maybe my favorite film from 2011, Take Shelter. Also Jeff Nichols’ newest joint, Mud.

Here’s a live performance of one of their new killer jamz.

So, come out on out on Tuesday, May 21. It’s eight bucks. Doors at 7:30. Show at 9. It will be good times.



Oh and many thanks to DCist, Brightest Young Things, Listen Local First, DC Music Download, and Pickup Productions for including the show in their weekly picks!
