See Aaron from LAYNE on Conan tonight w/ Matt Nathanson!

Aaron Tap (guitarist for LAYNE live) will be performing with Matt Nathanson on Conan O'Brien tonight! He's making his network TV debut. If you're a night owl, look for me somewhere between 12:30 - 1:00 am ET/PT (technically Thursday, I know) on your local NBC station.

Aaron says: "If you've got Tivo, you know what to do. I'll be the guy on the left
staring at his shoes."

LAYNE's Official CD Release Celebration at Hotel Cafe!!!


Mon, Sep 17th, 2007 8:00 PM 

The Hotel Cafe

1623 1/2 N. Cahuenga Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90028


Former Boston rockers take over Hotel Cafe with:

Paula Kelley Orchestra (8pm)
LAYNE (9pm)
Kay Hanley (10pm)
Banquet Hall (11pm)

BAH-STON Unite! In an effort to create community and thwart the "I'm here for this band (and out by the next band) mentality,” the four bands represented on this bill are connected not just by their Boston music scene pedigree: Letters To Cleo, Cave Dogs, Boy Wonder, Laurie Geltman Band, Drop NIneteens, The Pills, and more, but by their actual appreciation and support for each other (plus two marriages and several multi-band members which cross over into all four bands).  We hope to see some old friends in the audience...and new friends!!!

The first 5 people get a free EP signed by the band!!!  (okay, we changed this from 10 to 5...our hands cramp easily)
