What Jambase left out is what the intimate events were. They are thowing "Gala" shows that are all instrumental, and they are at smaller venues, and that they are requesting people be dressed in formal wear :) Like a fancy freak out kinda thing.

The above shows are the "normal" shows that are at bigger venues without the instruments and without the fancy dress.

I caught the MSG show during the Back2The5 tour, where they broke out suits and instrumentals. That shit was off the hook :)

This came from an email off the mailing list this morning. I couldnt find the info on the site anywhere, so here's the text:


Hola from spain where we are currently enjoying the local sights, sounds and excellent cafe. paella tonight! oh what!!???!!

ok, to clarify (claro); we are doing two types of shows this summer, "regular" shows and "gala events". (See deffinitions below).

Tickets for some of our "regular" shows in the USA go on sale soon (see below for details) -- Tickets for our "gala event" shows will be going on sale later.

THE REGULAR SHOW is, well you know how we do, hip hop, hardcore, instrumental, weird hippie spaced out rock jams... all that type of stuff. These shows are for the average meathead, so you don't have to dress up, though we encourage you to.

THE GALA EVENTS will be in smaller spots, more exclusive, more intimate. this will be more like quality time, our time, just you and the band sitting by a fire on a tropical beach late at night being serenaded with love songs. these shows are for people that are into our weird stuff, so if you want to get weird together, this is your call. these shows will be based around the instruments. some songs will have vocals, others will be instrumental. BUT if you'd like to come to one of these shows, then dress to impress, wear a suit, a tie, a dress, a gown or whatever you feel dressed up in... AND PLEASE leave your cargo shorts, birkenstocks and t-shirts at home, this is not that kind of party.

So for now the "regular" shows coming up are: Philly, Boston aka bean town, money making manhattan, brooklyn, that's right, I said brooklyn. Denver, santa barbera, berkeley, (please post on the boards if you know a good nick name for berkeley.) and remember, Dress to impress, you know that we will.

Another e mail will be going out shortly with info on the mix up album pre sale.

The management
