Today’s a good day to take a visit to igloostheband.com. There’s new functionality, including easier links to follow us on assorted networks, some studio demos to replace the live recordings that used to be there, a modest online merch store, access to the mailing list…..

…oh, and also, it now features goddamn Michelle Akin, who is making her live Igloos debut in just a few short weeks.

That’s Thursday, April 4, at Fontana’s: 105 Eldridge Street in Manhattan. (Facebook )

Igloos goes on at 10 PM. Your $7 cover gets you in to see the following lineup, but we do ask that when they ask you at the door, you let them know you’re there to see Igloos:

Maggie Poulous at 8 PM
Michael Simone at 9 PM
****IGLOOS at 10 PM****
Jungles at 11 PM

Be there!

Ladies and gentlemen, let’s fatten a baby on November 9th!

A fat baby.

Dear concerned citizens,

It’s another Igloos show you should come to!

Your favorite awkwardcore power-pop party band is getting ready to slap some new meat in your ears, and we’d love you to bring your ears around for ease of slapping.

Principal recording on the album is nearly finished, and your support really helps us in the weeks and months ahead as we move on to subsequent steps, so thank you!

New songs? Probably!

Our set starts at 9, with other bands TBA.

At Fat Baby (112 Rivington St, in Manhattan)

Alex, Ashley, Matt, and Nate

This is happening.


This is happening. Mark your calendars for July 26th. It may happen once or twice before July 26th, but July 26th will be a time when this is sure to be happening.
