Lots going on in Persian Rugs’ world.

Hi everyone,

First off, I’d like to say thank you so much to the support we’ve received for our new album, This is OK for Now. It was a labour of love and it’s nice to have a response. We had a lot of our friends turn out for a (very) late release show at the Boat on September 18th — thank you so much for that. Like myself, I know a lot of you had to work the next day but it was so amazing to have so many friendly faces out. A big thank you to Keith Hamilton for doing the sound (I could actually fucking hear myself for once) and to my lovely, talented friends Wanderbirds for playing, along with our friends The Disraelis for stepping in last minute to support as well. You can also check out some pictures by the talented Lori Steuart here: Release Pictures! *word on the street is Lori might be taking some new band photos for us, so stay tuned!

Now, moving on…

We are playing a lot in the next little while, so mark up your calendars!

First up, we’re playing TWiMFeST on October 24th at the Gladstone! This is an awesome new festival that deserves attention — it pays its artists and also has a no radius clause (all you bands will understand why that is important). We’ve never played the Gladstone and I’m very excited. Check out more info here!

We will then be opening for Allo Darlin’ as they make the rounds on their tour, which we are VERY excited about. That show is November 4th (which is Matt’s birthday too!) and it is happening at the Drake. This should be a wild night, so bring your drinking hats and make sure you’ve got your hangover pills on hand the next morning.

Matt and Ian will then be DJing as Black Postcards at the Embassy on November 6th (they do this the first Thursday of every month — it is always really fun and while my appearances are limited due to work, you never know when you might see me too)!

Finally, we’ll be playing a festival and DJing in Oshawa on the 7th and we’d love to see all you Oshawa-dwellers out for that (more details as soon as we know them).

HEY! I noticed we’ve made our way up to 492 likes on Facebook. We’re almost to 500 and that means so much — keep ‘em coming because it does help us.

Lastly, some of you know we filmed a music video this summer and I have been hard at work editing the huge amount of footage we got. The video is going to be really cool and it’s something I think we’ll all be proud of. It is a video for our second single, Underemployed. The song is about the trivialities of being “underemployed” and feeling as though you’re making money just to lose it, but for the video, I really wanted to encompass the things that get you through that kind of struggle — friends, drinks and a lot of fun. It’s about getting by and enjoying life, something I’m learning about myself right now. Here’s a little picture preview:

Thanks again for all your support — we’re excited about what the fall is going to bring.

Keep smiling,
xx K

Recording, our show this weekend, and more

Hi everyone,

TGIF!!! Anyone feeling like me and relieved it’s finally the weekend?

It’s going to be a busy one!!:

First off, our friend, Dain Miller, featured some of our music in episode 2 of A FULL ROTATION, his amazing new web-series. You can check that episode out HERE! I will actually making an appearance on the newest episode, which we’re shooting tomorrow, and I’m so excited to do a little acting work. You’ll be able to check that out soon, and if you have me on Facebook, ya’ll know I’ll be posting that on my wall (and I’ll link to it from my own YouTube channel too).

Secondly, as you all know, we’ve been in the studio working out some tracks. We’re going to have a full-length available for you all soon—ETA: the end of summer! Pretty exciting, and I’m so looking forward to letting you all hear our new stuff.

Lastly, we’re playing a show this weekend on Sunday in support of Girls Rock Camp! Check out the Facebook page here, and come by, get some new clothes, and have a few beers!

As always, check out our Facebook page for the latest information on shows and what’s happening in the crazy lives of us Persian-Ruggers. LIKE our page when you have a sec to stay in touch and so on–we really appreciate all the support.

Stay happy,

Hi everyone,

I hope this post finds you all well on this dreary February day.

Just wanted to give you all a heads up about a couple of upcoming shows: we’ll be playing next Thursday at The Silver Dollar. Check that here!

We’re also playing CMW on March 22nd at Rancho. Want to hear a couple of our new tracks? Hop on over to our CMW page and check that out!

Lastly, it would be great if you all could “LIKE” our Facebook page (over here!)–we update that very frequently and it’s great to stay connected via “social media”.

Stay happy and warm, friends.

Love, Kaye
