Well it's been awhile since we've sent out an email update on all things Kosmic. First and foremost, we hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving and we wish everyone the best over the approaching holidays. As is becoming a winter custom for us, the band has decided to lay low for a few months in an effort to pow-wow over some new material. There's a laundry list of things we hope to get accomplished over the coming weeks and we'll see if we can lay off the egg-nog long enough to actually do some of them. That doesn't mean, however, that we're not playing out at all... just less frequently. Kosmic is planning to take part in what is shaping up to not only be a celebration of the great new studio release by our brethren in The New 44's but also a genuine WNY music throw down. On Friday, December 19th, Kosmic Barnyard will be sitting in with members of The New 44's for their CD release party at the Historic Palace Theatre, located at 2 East Avenue, in Lockport NY. The event will start at 7 PM and runs until 11 PM with members of The Stoll Brothers, Gil Transit, Questet, and Clustafunk slated to join in. Admission is $10 with children under 12 free. For directions to the Palace and more info visit our website or www.lockportpalacetheatre.com or call (716) 438-1130. We are also investigating the possibility of doing something locally to celebrate the New Year and will keep you updated as to any developments, along with info on upcoming shows for January and beyond, through our site and future emails. Also, you may have also noticed a few changes to the website itself. We're in the process of trying to revamp and update some items on the site and have made some progress with a few more changes to come (remember what we said about the egg nog though!). Stay warm and be kinde! The Barnyard _________________________________________________________________ Tired of slow downloads and busy signals? Get a high-speed Internet connection!
