Third time's the charm...

...and I'm not talking about my GED. For the third year in a row, your favorite 80s chimps have been selected as Columbus Monthly's BEST LOCAL BAND!! I'm looking at the article right now! There it is on page 64, third column!! They had a really nice write-up on us too...and I quote:

"Local band: Reaganomics"

Kind of a poetry to it, don't ya think? Oh, and by the way...that's not us on the cover. I know, I know...a bunch of cute guys, jumping around like they've got fire ants in their shorts...but no, that would be "New Hollow," those kids that opened up for us at last year's 4th of July bash in New Albany. I'm thinking they're doing pretty good.

Come to think of it, we have a lot in common with these boys:

  • they're 16 years old, and so are our socks.
  • they have a marketing genius promoting them, and we're geniuses at taking advantage of promotions at our local market (I love my Kroger card).
  • they haven't finished high school, and Keenan should really think about another trip.
  • they have females screaming for them, we have females screaming at us.
  • they sang the national anthem in front of 94,000 people before a professional football game last fall. We watched it on TV. Okay, not really the same thing...

But seriously folks, thanks for your votes, your continued support, and for not laughing at our socks...much.


It's an outdoor Reaga-twofer! Friday night come celebrate with us at Benny's Pizza in Marysville. Everyone's gonna be there. I'm not kidding...everyone. Go ahead; try calling Maine Friday night...nobody's gonna be there, 'cuz they'll all be at BENNY'S with The Reaganomics!!

Okay, so maybe not Maine, but there'll be a lot of people there...ayuh.

Saturday night we make syrup out of the stage at Gordy's in Westerville. People LOVE this place! Great food, great drink prices, great corn-hole...


Oh, and as an added bonus, Sully's finally back from touring the country on that "Macramé for Fun and Profit" kick he's been on'll be nice to have him back.

And speaking of dusty things...

...apparently there was a helluva dust storm they had down in technical terms, it's called a "haboob." I don't really have anything to add to this, I just like saying "haboob."
