All I Want For Christmas Is Two MIRK Shows

Hello MIRKins!!

We had an awesome week! On Saturday, we opened up for none other than Wu Tang Clan!

Thank you so much to everyone that was there and for the love and support for the fans.
Oh...and thank you Method Man...

Wu Tang tore the place up (who actually thought they weren't going to) and gave us all a show we wouldn't forget.
Thank you also to Mr. Cheeks for rocking the stage with us!

Before the show, we had to pack up the van to make the very long trek up to Clifton Park. We needed some muscles to help us up...enter Mirk Thornton

This week will be back at the Public Assembly in Brooklyn NY for a First Look Sessions showcase.

The next day, we will be rocking Friday Night Live at Red Square in downtown Albany NY. Check out more information about the event HERE.

We hope to see you guys at these awesome events!
Have a wonderful holiday and be safe!

MIRK and Wu Tang ain't nothing to f*ck with!

Hello MIRKins!

So this Saturday, December 17th, we will be blessed to grace the stage with none other than Wu Tang!!!

Here is some info courtesy of the Times Union Blog:

The Wu-Tang Clan is at it again. The innovative early ’90s hip-hop act is on the road, and it has all of its living members intact. Boy Jones, son of Ol’ Dirty Bastard (who died in 2004), is also in tow.

In concert, RZA, GZA, Method Man and the rest of the gang are rapping plenty of their hits, including the classic “Bring Da Ruckus.” Mirk, Dem White Boys and DJ Playground will open the upcoming show at Northern Lights.

At a glance

When: 8 p.m. Saturday (12/17) Where: Northern Lights, 1208 Route 146, Clifton Park Tickets: $40 Info: 371-0012;

This show will DEFINITELY sell out (if it hasn't already)

So for the first time ever, MIRK has stickers!!! Someone has spotted a fresh MIRK sticker and sent it into us. Do you see anything 'MIRK' around Albany?! Send it to us for the blog at mirkinfo@gmailcom

We leave you with a final thought/review from our very own Mike Thornton

We Grindin'

Hello MIRKins

So this week was crazy! We finally had our local album release party at the Armory!!
Thank you for all who came, it really was an amazing time!
And thank you to Aaron who gave us an amazing stage, sound and light show...

Along with our new album, we also have new tshirts. They are designed by Tree Shurts so of course they are dope! We only made 100 of them and there aren't many left so get on it...

If you missed the show, check out the review from the KnickLedger.com

We also have finally finished our press packets which are going out today to major labels, radio stations, magazines, etc...
Here is Chris Russell properly displaying them...

Just a reminder, the new album is not being released until March...so hopefully you were there to get your fan exclusive copy.

We are now preparing for our next show where we will be opening for Wu Tang at Northern Lights on December 17th. This show will DEFINITELY sell out, so get your tickets soon!

For those of who were at the show on Friday, you saw Josh rock out on the one chord he learned on guitar. This inspired Tara to ventured onto an instrument...

That's all we have for you this week. We will not be out this weekend, but don't worry...we will be back!

Until next time,
