Gourmet Band Names...

Hello MIRKins!

So we had a pretty awesome week! We started off in the studio working on some new material...

On Friday, we traveled to Brooklyn to open up for Travie McCoy at this dope club at SRB.

It was a long day of travel with a lot of traffic, and an awesome sound check, so we went to grab a bite to eat before the show kicked off.  Josh started to show his fatigue...
God, he is so sexy...

The following day, we traveled back to Albany to open of for the master, Rakim!

This weekend, we will be at Red Square on Friday for Friday Night Live.  We have an awesome band from Boston coming to rock the show with us, Greenline Inbound. This will be an awesome show, so please come check us all out!

The following day, we will be at one of our favorite venues, Stout on Broadway.  This will be a whole night of MIRK, starting at 10pm and ending at 2pm!

We hope to see you at these shows and check our website for more shows that have just been added! 

ALSO :: Our guitar player has his OWN BLOG...Mike always has a knack for coming up with amazing and hilarious band names...well now he has his own blog.

Until next time...

Music Makes Me High-er


Well this was a crazy week.  We visited WEQX in VT to promote the Move Festival which was this past weekend.

Thank you to everyone at EQX for the love.

We were busy this week in the studio, tracking new songs and remixing some old ones.  When it gets super later, sometimes you get a little crazy...


Silly Kate...


You also never know where your inspiration for a new song will come from...


On Friday, we rocked the 4th Annual 420 show presented by Tree Shurts.  Check out some shots of the show, thanks to Upstate Photographers. 

Here is the crowd, MIRKin around...

Tree Shurts also updated the Winnebaker...

We get google alerts so we know when people are talking about MIRK...this alert was a little disturbing though...

Speaking of disturbing, we found Andy's creepy twin...

This weekend we will be in Brooklyn at SRB opening up for Travie McCoy, the lead singer for The Gym Class Heroes. 

Then we will be at Northern Lights opening up for the one and only Rakim!

Until next time...

It's no 3D Tupac, but we do our best...


So we haven't spoken in awhile! How are you? How are the kids? That's good...

So 2 weekends ago, we rocked Stout on Broadway. If you haven't been there yet, then you are crazy. If you haven't been there in awhile, then check it out again because they put in a brand new DEBO sound system!

While packing the van at the end of the night, tragedy struck...but Chris Russell was there to save the day...


Later in the week, we shot a promo video for the 4th Annual 420 show presented by Tree Shurts which will be on 4/20 at Red Square. All of our friends from Tree Shurts were there, including the polar bear!

Steve ran into a wardrobe malfunction during the shoot...


We then played at McGeary's this past week. Thank you all who were there, that really is one of our favorite places to be. Here we are getting ready to set it off!

We will be returning to McGeary's this Saturday at the 1st annual MOVE Festival.

This past Saturday, we were at Northern Lights opening up for Badfish. We got there early to unload which makes you really sweaty and thus, take your shirt off...


Here is Kate getting ready to blow off the faces of the crowd...

Check back to the blog for more pics from Badfish! And thank you to all that was at the Badfish show, we made a lot of new friends and fans!

So this weekend we will be performing at the 420 show presented by Tree Shurts at Red Square. This event is expected to sell out so there early!

The following day we will be at the MOVE festival at McGeary's. We hope to see you at BOTH of these events!

Until next time,
