First off, check out this new video for “Facebook” by The Plurals! Shot on tour last summer, coming out now in anticipation of a new tour. Also, we discovered when we tried to advertise this video on the, uh, real facebook that you cannot promote non-official products that have the word “Facebook” in them. Well aren’t we just little rebels. But anyway, that’s the video up there. This is a link to it too, because why not?

And if you have a super computer you can keep scrolling on this until you find Frank and Earnest in impossible to read font!
Frank and Earnest are playing Pouzza Fest in Montreal this weekend! Yep, someone thought it was a good idea to let these guys into another country and they’ll be playing alongside many many bands including The Muffs, The Dwarves, Teenage Bottlerocket, Jeff Rosenstock and many more “big” names as well as some bands that have come through GTG shows like Warm Needles, Molly Rhythm, Ray Strife, and The Howl. Check out the lineup here. Frank and Earnest play TBH Bar on Sunday night (May 17th). On the way out to Pouzza they’ll be doing their first international show ever at Smiling Buddha in Toronto on May 14th! Alas, F&E will be down one and playing as a three-piece, as lead guitar clown Tommy Plural (i.e., the guy writing this) will be trapped under thousands of plants, in a manner of speaking. It might be like Stephen King in Creepshow, or not, I’ll leave it up to you. Anyway, Frank and Earnest are the best at way they do, and they’re doing it in Canada this weekend!
