The “WITHOUT A TRIBE” Album cover contest reminder:
DEADLINE TO ENTER is JULY 22nd – NEXT FRIDAY!
We wanna hear from you!
OTHER TREASON TIDBITS
– Work on our next album “WITHOUT A TRIBE” continues
– Bobby is DEFINITELY enjoying his brief, yet much needed, summer separation from the classroom. The Summer of Bobby is underway!
– The new “PLAY LOUD/LISTEN LOUDER” t-shirts are ever-so-closer to becoming a reality. We’ve been conducting a poll in the “Uptown Q” Facebook Group between three possible designs (We conducted the same poll here in the Newsletter a couple weeks back), and there is a CLEAR winner. VERY clear. But there have also been some KILLER suggestions from a few Treasonites on how to make the winning design ever better. Awesome feedback! We’ll be working on that this week. Stay tuned.
