Fun Fact:
I emailed the band for info on this event and Ross replied, so I will be going to…

http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id= ... 253&ref=mf
and
http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/event ... 620&ref=nf

So, next Friday (2 days before my birthday) I will be seeing Tally Hall, AND Jukebox the Ghost twice in one day. My birthday present to me ^^. It’s free too!

I’ll post the email I sent to them and the response:
I can't help but notice that two bands I highly enjoy will be in the same place, twice in the same day. Since I consider myself a bigger fan of you than of Jukebox (though still a fan of theirs), I figured I'd ask you about information.

So my question is:
What is happening on October 24th?

Pretty vague, right? I mean, is it going to be two concerts, how long will each one be, how far away from each other will they be, and they're free, right? What's the special event for, will refreshments be served, the mind reels with such questions.

If you could answer as much as you can that would be exquisite.

Yours in fandom,
Dwight Young.

Spoiler!
PS. I got the signed Record and pieces of the internet show opening today... REALLY AWESOME, thank you guys!
Dwight, here is ALL the info you will EVER need regarding that day...

There is a music festival in NY that weekend called CMJ, and along with it comes a slew of free shows, parties, get togethers, etc. We are playing a couple of these on Friday, along with Jukebox and some other great bands/artists as well. The afternoon show runs from noon until 5. The lineup is as follows...

12:00 - Pretty and Nice
1:00 - Princeton
2:00 - Jukebox the Ghost
3:00 - The Noisettes
4:00 - us

Admission is free, and there are free refreshments as well.

That night is another get together at the Rugby Polo Ralph Lauren store on University Place in Greenwich village. The line up for that is...

7:00 - April Smith and the Great Picture Show
7:45 - Jukebox the Ghost
8:30 - us

This one will be acoustic, whereas the afternoon show will be a more traditional "full" set-up if you will.

That's all the info I've got, so hopefully it answered whatever questions you had. As far as I know, the Venues are pretty close together, I'm sure you'll be able to experience the full 12-5 of the afternoon party, and make it with plenty of time to spare to the Polo store if you can survive that much music.
Spoiler!
I'm glad to hear the package made it to you safely, and again, thanks for all your help and support, we appreciate it more than some vinyl and a prop can really show.
-Ross
Expect me to bring back some videos!

And here's part of what I got from them in the mail:

Woah cool. I might have to make more of an effort to get there. Maybe I'll see if I can get a friend to come with me.

I got a yellow card, similar to Coz's. I don't know if they did this for anybody else, but they also wrote "Oliver, Thanks!" on the record cover.

GAH!!! Oliverz! Can you not see how the trend here in hiding all speak of "it" ???? I had to go cover it up, sorry.
Anyway - to answer your question.... Yes, I did too.
