THE REUNION TO END ALL REUNIONS: MOUSE RAT: THE REUNION SHOW: GUITARS ON FIRE
Ladies and gentlefans... Don't believe the mainstream press. Because here's the real news. That's right, people. The band formerly and currently known as Mouse Rat is back to its old tricks.
After a brief but bitter breakup leading to a brief but killer solo career for Dwyer, Mouse Rat is back and better than ever. Now with more lead singers than ever before! And more jumping around on stage from Chang than ever before! And more doing whatever it is Rivers does than ever before! This cannot be overhyped - no concert in history can compare to the Mouse Rat reunion show at Paladino's!!
If you missed it, sorry dudes! Maybe someone recorded it and is streaming it online. And if that is happening, please send me the link because I really wanna hear it. I remember doing an awesome shred on Menace Ball and can't seem to recreate it. Thanks a ton!
Until next show, keep on rockin' in the free world! Which come to think of it is an awesome lyric for a song. Remind me about it if you see me.
Hello, fans of music, glory, power and excellence.
Congratulations. You just bought or are about to buy our new awesome album "The Awesome Album." It has been graded 100% awesome by us. We poured not just our hearts and souls into it, but also our music. It's got everything... from our very first song "Menace Ball," back when we were Scarecrow Boat, to recent hits "5000 Candles in the Wind" (we'll never forget you Li'l Sebastian) and "Two Birds Holding Hands" - Pawnee Community College Radio's #11 most played song on the Local Talent Hour. Get your copy now, and be prepared to ENTER THE AWESOMENESS... which sounds super cool and will probably be the name of our next album.
Also, we just got a new manager, APRIL LUDGATE, who is now handling all bookings and appearances and whatnot, so contact her at the Parks and Rec department at City Hall when you need us to play at your event. Our fees are $1000 per appearance or best offer.
Advance praise for "The Awesome Album":
"Extremely competent." - Ron Swanson
"I am so so so so so proud of you!" - Leslie Knope
"Eighteen dollars." - April Ludgate
"Fantastic. A tour de force." - Kyle Something (don't know his last name)
"The best stuff we've ever done." - Burly
Mouse Rat is:
Andy Dwyer (Vocals, Guitar, Songwriting, Spiritual Inspiration)
Alan Chang (Bass)
Mark Rivers (Drums)
April Ludgate, Manager
What happens when a song just takes you over, and you hum it all day long? That's easy. It infects you like a virus.
It infects you like Mouse Rat.
The Rat takes inspiration from the greats - Dave Matthews Band, Counting Crows, and recent (but solid) discovery Train - and then spins it out of control.
This is why Mouse Rat is Pawnee's #1 band for any music event, and all unofficial government functions.
As Scarecrow Boat, the Rat refused to be confined to one style of music. Now as Mouse Rat, they continue to put out better versions of the same stuff. "It's literally mind blowing," says frontman Andy Dwyer, "Our shows are totally known to rock. And our fans (Rat Tails we call 'em) tell us they leave our shows buzzed beyond belief. They're just super jazzed, and usually tired because we play 'til no one's left."
Keep checking the site for updates, including an awesome new section called "Andy Jams," where Dwyer will share the songs he's digging right now and the reasons they'll rock you too.
