It was an absolute honor to play the first inaugural Yippie Fest at the Prop Thtr in Avondale, Chicago last weekend. Many kudos to the dedicated organizers who wrangled more than 80 groups performing theater, music, comedy, and more over three massive days—and without a hitch. We connected with old pals, met some great folks, and had ourselves an excellent time. We can't wait until next year!

We didn't really stand a chance at winning this time, but we had a new song that was begging to be recorded in real time. We also happened to have a tiny desk (thanks Natalie and Carlo!). But do spend some time with the winners of NPR's most recent Tiny Desk Concert, Tank and The Bangas. They sound amazing and we can't wait to go see them.
Is your Halloween playlist missing that special something? Don't you worry your Peter Pumpkin head about it. Parallelicopter's got you covered with a itty-bitty ditty about a little-known horror film afflicted with a small but significant typo.
The Cakefather was Parallelicopter's last Cake & Whiskey gig before the monthly event was brought to a halt by a cease-and-desist notice from a magazine that shall remain nameless (though you could probably venture a guess). The event was held at Act One Pub inside the Mayne Stage Theatre in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago.
Never played a show with the Godfather on mute in the background before, but the crowd was still pretty into our set, classic film notwithstanding. Apparently we made them an offer they couldn't refuse.
