People of the world, we invite you to attend our
Third Annual School of Athens Ugly Christmas Sweater Show this Saturday, December 15th at Club Cafe. Doors open at 7:30 and we'll be partying all night. Josh Verbanets starts the night off at 8pm with an acoustic set and Triggers will more than warm things up for us before we take the stage. We hope it will be another sold out show crowded with the ugliest sweaters imaginable. If you haven't already picked up your sweater, go to Goodwill or your Grandmothers attic and get ready for a great time.
In other news, School of Athens was awarded two wonderful plaques by the City Paper last night, winning 2nd place for "Best Rock Band" and 3rd place for "Best Underground Band".. Thank you to everyone who voted for us. Losing to the Clarks in Pittsburgh is like losing to Tom Hanks in Hollywood, so we're very honored to be awarded for the second year in a row. You can pick up the new issue of the City Paper to see the complete list of winners. Congratulations to our friend Becky for winning best bartender at St. James Place Tavern, which happens to be our favorite five-star dive bar.
After our Club Cafe show, our last show of the year will be an all ages show at Southminster Church in Mt. Lebanon with Matt Capan and Sweet Earth The Day After at 8pm. We won't be playing in Pittsburgh till Feb or March since we'll be busy recording again early next year.
Thanks again for voting for us again this year and we hope to see you this Saturday.
Neal, Mike, Johnny and Drew
School of Athens
