We had such a great time this weekend, and want to thank everyone for coming out to our shows and gettin’ down with us! YES!!!! West Seattle Street fair was one of the best “Street fests” that we’ve played this year. I think the crowd liked us because we sold A LOT of our CD’s. If you haven’t had a chance to get out to West Seattle’s annual neighborhood party, I suggest you put it on your calendar for next year!

After West Seattle we relaxed and BBQ’d in the sun for a bit until it was time to get down to Ballard to play Conor Byrne w/ Lone Madrone.  Conor Byrne is a great place to play so of course we had a great time. About ten minutes after our show the crowd decided they weren’t done having fun with us and demanded some more songs. The bar gave the OK and we were happy to fire up the amp’s and rock a few more songs, including one of our newest favorites “Flat Black Cadillac” which you will most likely hear on the new record once we decide to make it. After the show we got a little sleep and then it was back into the van to head up north to one of thee coolest fests we’ve done yet. Burning Beast!!!!  The Pic says it all. Fuck Yeah.


The Trades have a cd giveaway contest we wanted to tell you about because, well, its OUR CD!!!! You can win one, and all you have to do is click on the album below and fill our where to send it to. Its that easy! They also had some very kind words to say about the record and video we have up. Check it out and then click on the album below:

“North West originated but definitely Southern Fried, C-Leb & the Kettle Black offer an energetic “Hott Mess” of throaty blues, wicked slide guitar, and honky tonk harmonica on their debut.  It ain’t got that “Parental Advisory — Explicit Content” sticker on it for nothing as it’s profane as all get out (though it has “clean versions” of four of the songs at the end of the disc… y’know, after your ears have already melted off).”  

Enter our contest below for your chance to win The Kettle Black by C-Leb & the Kettle Black!
