Yow! What a way to celebrate a birthday. We had a blast playing the Arlene Francis Center yesterday in honor of our amazing front woman Lila. So hell-bent on rocking the socks off our audience we were that the intrepid Leilani risked life, limb and lip singing into an uncooperative microphone intent on sharing it’s electricity with her. Thanks to everyone who turned up. If you weren’t able to make it, please take a listen to our set and experience the energy yourself.

Welcome to the New Year, and a (slightly) New Look for The 50/50s.

Our first band practice of the year went pretty well. Preparations for our upcoming recording session are coming along nicely, with eight songs identified for likely candidates, and an additional tune set to make the grade as well. I’ve been getting my guitars tuned up so that my only goof-ups will be skill related and not technical in nature.

Beyond recording, we are definitely looking forward to playing some live shows in the near future. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for further information.

For those of you interested in acquiring a super rare recording by The 50/50s, your opportunity has arrived. Sonoma County’s newest community radio station KWTF is in the midst of a fundraiser. Luckily, not only can you support a noble cause, for a meager donation of $25 you can receive a mixtape that contains the aforementioned Super Rare Recording by The 50/50s. Don’t delay, do it now:
