Fat Bottom Girls

Hello MIRKins!!!

So these last two weeks have been pretty laid back for us.  We have been busy recording and rehearsing new material as well as booking some east coast gigs for the summer.

I figured I would take you through a typical MIRK rehearsal for this week's MIRK Monday's...

First we like to warm up...

Then after about an hour of rocking, we take a break. Our 'break conversations' are always very interesting...

Then once we are finished, we wait for Josh who likes to take his sweet ass time...We write music everywhere, about everything...

Well that's all we have for you this week!  We have some pretty awesome news in the works, so definitely check out our facebook page this week. We have the weekend off so enjoy your Memorial Day and we will see you on Monday!

Until next time...

This Microphone Smells Like Ass...

Hello MIRKins!

So this was a busy week.  We started our week off with the good news that our first album, LOVE, is now officially on Pandora.  Get your Mirk and the New Familiars (our old name which is associated with our first album) pandora station today!


We are back in the studio working on new tracks that we will start releasing for FREE.  One track will be released per month.  Here is Steve working on one of the tracks...

And here...


And here...


We rocked Friday Night Live with one of our new favorite bands, Green Line Inbound, from Boston.  Here they are! These guys were dope!


and yes that is a keytar!


Josh was unable to make sound check so Steve decided to fill in. This is why we don't give the drummer a microphone...

This weekend we will be playing at Bootleggers in Troy NY.  This will be the first time we are playing here and we hope to see all of you out there!

Until next time,
