Thanks to the generosity of friends and family, we have been able to travel to many far off cities. However, we are reaching the point where we won’t be able to keep borrowing vehicles. We need a van. But the truth of the matter is, we won’t be able to afford one without your help. Check out our Indiegogo campaign for more details.
We’ve had some incredible travels, so far, and been blessed to perform for many wonderful people. We want to continue to bring our music to TFL fans, old and new! Thank you!
The Future Laureates are hitting the road, again! If you live in one of these three cities, we’ll be seeing you soon. Come on out for singin’, dancin’, and good old-fashioned high-fivin’!
Be there or be square!
We are over the moon that we get to return to the insane raucousness that is South by Southwest. In one month’s time, we’ll be hitting that dusty trail, heading straight for Austin, Texas.
So far, we have booked two unofficial showcases, with another in the works. You can come see us FOR FREE on:
Thursday, March 14 at 7 pm
Amped (Upstairs) at 300 E. 6th St.
Saturday, March 16 at 6 pm
The Chuggin’ Monkey at 219 E. 6th St.
Heck, we were even mentioned in the list of Chicago bands making the trip on Gaper’s Block!
Stay tuned for more shows!!!
Last April, our good friend Josh Terzino of Music.Defined. invited us to be part of a new feature on his website called Hasty Revelations. He brought us into the studio and gave us one hour to record as much as we could, and we walked out with this stripped-down version of “Lovely.”
Rob and James will be on WLUW tonight (12/13) at 6:30 CST. Tune in to hear about Inspiration CAUDog and the show tomorrow at Double Door. If you are in Chicago, you can listen at 88.7 FM. If you are elsewhere, you can listen here.
And speaking of Double Door–come on out tomorrow for a rockin’ good time!
Doors open at 8pm, 21+
Tickets are $10 at the door, but if you buy them online today with the promo code “FRIEND” they are only $5
This is a CD Release show for fellow CAUDog band Matthew Morgan and the Lost Brigade. Also joining the bill are our very good friends Jeff Brown and goodbyehome. Plus it’s James’s birthday! Come give him a hug!
We are very proud to be part of this joint effort by Chicago Acoustic Underground and our label, CAUDog Records. From now until December 24th, if you purchase any album released by CAUDog Records (including our very own Fortress Sessions), 70% of the proceeds will go directly to Inspiration Corporation.
Inspiration Corporation is an incredible organization that provides job training to people who are affected by homelessness and poverty. At two Inspiration Kitchen locations, participants gain valuable skills in the restaurant industry. You can learn more about their history, here.
This holiday season, give the gift of great local music, and support a noble cause, too.
