Monday November 20th
Where: Feruqis
What:   Volumen - Book of Maps - Hail Man, Well Met

Book of Maps are old friends of ours.  In fact, Doug and I used to play with Chris Pickolick from BOM in the band, Paul Bunyan Band.  Paul Bunyan Band did "interpretations" of classic console video game songs before this was done to death by the Mini-Bosses and The Advantage.  Doug and I, sadly, were fired from the group.

Anyway, they'll be swinging through town on Monday, the 20th and playing with us at Feruqis.  We're really excited to start doing shows at Feruqis.  I think it has tons of potentional.  I'm also excited to throw eggs at BOM.

Also on the bill are locals, Hail Man, Well Met.  I've only seen them once and they rocked my fucking socks off.  They remind me of The Shrimpers only they have a weird sorta prog-rock element in there also?  Also, I smelled a little bit of the jam band in them.  All in all, it was a delightful bouquet.

The show will probably start around 9:30ish and it'll cost around $4.  Come support RAWK, damn you!

Friday November 3rd
Where: The Elks
What:   Benefit for Richie Rowe

As you may, or may not have, heard, Richie Rowe (formerly of the Sputniks, The Disappointments and a handful of other bands) was in a serious motorcyle accident.

It's expected that his hospital bills are going to be insane, so some kind folks have organized some benefit concerts for him.  We were asked to play the one on the 3rd of November.   You can read more about Richie's accident and his current status at this website.

I know the Oblio Joes are playing with us as well, and I think I heard that J.C. Auto will also be there.  I'm sure they'll be more bands, stay tuned!

Saturday Oct. 14th
Where: Old Post - Downtown Missoula
What:   Volumen getting drunk and playing whatever you want us to.

We'll be playing all night!!  Ask for Miniature Action Jesus and we'll probably play it.  Ask for Jane's Addiction covers and we'll do them.  Ask for us to play songs by the Obes and we'll butcher them.  Ask us to stop playing and we'll say NO!

Fri May 12th @ The Old Post
The Evolution of Volumen @ The Old Post

This isn't just Volumen playing all damned night at the Old Post (even though that's plenty good).  This is even better.  It's "Now I remember why I hated Volumen", a retrospective.

The first hour of the show will be Shane, Doug, Bryan and DJ Sloppydrunk (the DAT machine drum beats) playing ancient Volumen songs.  Some of which you will know (like Volumen Theme, How do you Spell, Andale, etc) and some of which you won't (like Beer, Mom's Gone, etc).  Even the songs you think you know, you don't know them like this.  The gay knob is turned up to 11 for this show and you may never see this action again!

After the crying is over, the real Volumen will take the stage and try and help you forget that ugly incident!
