The Silent Comedy is in the thick of creating a new album, and they're reaching out to the community for help. Here's how it works:
- Participants submit a photo of themselves with a mustache (real or fake), along with a donation toward the band’s recording fund.
- In recognition of the support, the band will include the photos in the jacket of a limited edition pressing of their new full length record.
- In addition, each contributor will receive gifts ranging from a copy of the new record to a hand painted box loaded with limited edition artwork, merchandise, and rare recordings (depending on their level of contribution).
- Details, submission forms, and guidelines can all be found at www.thesilentcomedy.com.
To kick off Mustache Mayhem, the band is hosting a Mustache Party at El Dorado Cocktail Lounge on Wednesday, July 29th. Attendees are encouraged to wear mustaches (real or fake), and prizes will be awarded to the best mustache (male and female).
Some of the Mustache Party fun will include:
- On site photographer (and provided mustaches) to help you submit your Mustache Mayhem photo.
- Giveaways from various individuals and organizations (including Sezio.org, Set & Drift, a signed print of The Silent Comedy photographed by Rebecca Joelson, and more). Each partygoer will receive a ticket for the drawing free of charge.
- “Pin the Mustache on Justin” game where participants attempt to correctly place the mustache on a photo of Silent Comedy banjo/mandolin player, Justin Buchanan.
- A brief acoustic performance by The Silent Comedy.
- Party favors (including mustache decals and chocolate mustaches).
It's going to be a fun night, and all in the name of getting a rock-album created by one of our favorite bands. See you there!
