GINGER + KEVIN ARE OKAY

We are happy to report that Ginger Unwin, who was running in the Boston Marathon yesterday, along with her husband, Kevin Unwin, lead singer and guitarist for fairweatherfriend and who was there on the sidelines supporting her, are both doing just fine and were not harmed by the tragedy on Monday. Our heart goes out to those affected by the horrific events that took place in Boston. We wish Mr. & Mrs. Unwin and safe and joyous visit in the beautiful state of Massachusetts and amazing city of Boston for the remainder of their stay, as well as a safe journey home to the desert later this week.

FAIRWEATHERFRIEND FIRST LISTEN

Tonight, Monday, January 7th, KXCI 91.3FM Community Radio will play the brand new fairweatherfriend 7inch record for the very first time at 8:00pm on Locals Only. fairweatherfriend is a brand new shoegaze / dreampop band from Tucson AZ that has never played a live show, so unless you are close friends with the band, or caught the demos they posted on their SoundCloud page a while back, tonight will be the first time the world has heard fairweatherfriend. Their 7inch single is still being put together with final touches, but we received the Test Pressings just last week, and we were oh-so-excited that we asked our dear friend Matt Milner, host of KXCI's Locals Only show, if he wanted to have a first-on-air-spin with the fresh wax.

The band themselves had their first opportunity to hear their finished work when they stopped by our corporate offices earlier this week (photographs below). It was a perfect pressing, so we are all-systems-go with production. The release date is set for March 26th. If you can't wait until then, tune in to KXCI tonight at 8:00pm to listen to fairweatherfriend for the very first time; Milner will be playing both tracks from the 7inch single and interviewing the band members.
