so no, we dont play out all the time and no, we dont have a new release coming out next week. what rooms has in store for you is some city traversing fun coming up on 11.19.10!

number 9
we are privileged to have been asked to play Tonic Ball 9, a yearly fundraiser for Second Helpings, one of the raddest food rescue/job training/feeding those that need it NFP is this city. every year their committee chooses an artist that any high school rock band would be happy to cover but seasoned professionals (like us) find daunting and intimidating. so OF COURSE we play the year they pick the Beatles. it only makes sense, dammit.
now ben has a piece of artwork up for grabs at the Tonic Gallery and money from its sale will also go to Second Helpings. you can go stare at that over at the New Day Meadery, right across the street from the Fountain Square Theater where rooms will be playing a relatively early set of 3 songs: two originals and a Beatles cover…which one?…you’ll just have to show up and enjoy it, or, ask us.

art+music=the best
the SAME NIGHT over at the Melody Inn Rooms will be playing one of the more enjoyable shows of the season. well, enjoyable for us because we love playing clusterf*@k shows. the show brings back for one night only Creepin’ Charley and the Boneyard Orchestra (great dirty dark dark dark blues), Order of the Black Hand (great dirty dirty dirty dark metal), and Rooms (great dirty, slightly grey scaled indie). DJ Dicky Fox will be making prerecorded songs audible between sets. the coolest things about the show? whats happening next door….

each of the bands (and DJ) were hand picked by Andy Fark not just for their musical fortitude but also artistic expression via visual arts. There will be at least one artist from each band presenting their work two doors down at The Melody Inn Reception Hall. its art baby:
