Big Ole Update

Wanted to update you all on my happenings.

First and foremost, my band MRS DANVERS was asked to open for Corin Tucker Band at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston. Corin was the lead singer of Sleater-Kinney, one of my big influences in wanting to start MRS DANVERS. I have looked up to her and Kathleen Hanna as two of the most influential, talented women in rock music. This is a huge honor for us to open for her…

Here are the details:

Show is Monday, October 25. Doors open at 7:00pm. We go on at 7:30pm. Tickets are $15 in advance and $17 day of the show. Paradise is located off of the B line. I believe it’s one of the BU stops.

Next item of business. I got my tickets to Cairo. That’s right, my band (Justin Hancock, Dabbo Caucci, and Bruno Esrubilsky) will be flying to Egpyt and playing two dates at a major festival in Cairo. We will be there from November 8 to November 16.

Thirdly, I subbed on bass for Nini+Ben this past Monday at Club Passim in Harvard Square. We are playing a show this Saturday, the 23rd at the National Underground during the CMJ festival in New York City.

Finally, I played my first show as a resident of New York last week at Monkey Rock @ Googie’s Lounge (above the Living Room) in the East Village. I used backing tracks and played guitar and it went really, surprisingly well! All new material, new setup, new sound. I had a blast and the response was extremely positive. I’m actually in talks with a filmmaker from The New School, who found out about my music from the show, about being the subject of his documentary. So we’ll see where that goes, haha.

Things are going very well! I finally got a flexible job in NYC, and am excited about all of the things that are happening.

MPMF wrap-up


Disclaimer: this blog features brutal honesty. I name names and probably will piss some people off with this, but frankly don’t care.

I’m back in Boston now. Specifically Cambridge. The girls and I drove back east on Monday morning, enduring a fourteen-hour drive amidst a heinous thunderstorm. It sucked ass, but we definitely had some good albeit delirious conversations. About an hour into the worst section of the storm, we started contemplating the horrible injuries we would incur from a seemingly inevitable catastrophic car accident. I lamented the loss of my face, while it was determined that Randi would certainly die and Dhy would become paralyzed. Discussing our fears and anxieties curiously helped keep the mood upbeat.

MPMF madness pt 1

Just wanted to update ya’ll on what’s going on this week. So MRS DANVERS is playing the Midpoint Music Festival in CIncinnati, Ohio- aka: Dhy and I’s hometown. I’m playing a show tonight at 8:45 at Neon’s Unplugged at the Artist Clubhouse. The address is 208 E. 12th Cincinnati, OH. Tomorrow night, MRS D is playing at Inner Peace Center, which is located at 708 Walnut Street; Cincinnati, OH 45202.

The other ladies of MRS DANVERS and I drove from Boston to Cincinnati on Wednesday. We drove all 14 hours in one day and got in quite late. Lots of fast food was consumed, including the Double Down from KFC (I, as a vegetarian, of course, did not partake). Thursday, we woke up and had blueberry pancakes, fake sausage, and coffee for breakfast courtesy of my mom. We then made a bunch of flyers at Kinko’s, got Dhy’s bass fixed, and then went downtown and saw Wussy play at Grammer’s and No No Knots play at the Contemporary Arts Center. My favorite song of Wussy’s was “Airborne” what a great tune and performed quite well live. Their record Funeral Dress is wonderful. My favorite song of No No Knots was “Cat Cat.” Molly and co. sounded great.

Afterwards, we crashed pretty early. Today, we got up and had cereal, toast, and coffee again courtesy of my mom. I applied for a passport for my big Egypt trip in November. We’ve been rehearsing all day. And we’re heading downtown around 6. I’m playing at 8:45 and then we’re busking on the MPMF buses, promoting ourselves and such and providing a mellower arrangement of our tunes for the metro-riders. Tracy Walker hooked us up with that.

Tomorrow is the big day!!! MRS D takes MPMF. Looking forward to another night. MPMF is like SXSW in a lot of ways. Even cheaper beer, good folks, and a relaxed vibe. We are having a blast!

wrote and recorded a new song today with producer, drew ericson, one-half of roy g and the biv.

ill try my best to smile and say
that everything will be okay
in the morning

ill shout some slogans i dont mean
but my secrets hide inside my dreams
they carry warnings

oh, ohio
oh, ohio

she’s a singer with a lovely voice
but my head’s too full of static noise
i can’t hear her

she’s singing me to sleep again
she’s my one and only real friend
i can’t hear her

oh, ohio
oh, ohio

everyone has got a mother
everyone has got a mother
everyone has got a mother
everyone has got a father
everyone has got a father
everyone has got a father

oh, ohio
oh, ohio

MRS DANVERS interview on the front-page of Autostraddle

MRS DANVERS is currently featured on the front page of Autostraddle.com, a lesbian pop culture online magazine with huge readership. Here’s a link to the interview.

Corey, the writer describes us as

“a mix of old ’60s rock with a bit of ’80s styling thrown in, like The Beatles got high with Blondie and then picked up a trumpet…Their debut EP, What Did I Do?, features four solid tracks of fresh new sounds featuring a signature noveau New Wave melody layered with Anne’s unique vocals.”
