Getting to Know We Know You Know with Lesbians on Ecstasy
Thirty years ago Olivia Records released Lesbian Concentrate, rumored
to be the first album ever released with the word "lesbian" in the
title. Recently, the Lesbians On Ecstasy released the album We Know
You Know, an electropunk, neofolk masterpiece that puts Lesbian
Concentrate into the blender to whip up second wave feminism and
womyn's music into dancable, contemporary fierceness. Come meet the
band, all the way here from Montreal, and give a listen to their
unique take on intergenerational retrospection! At the GLBT
Historical Society, free, and open to all.

Thanks to those who came and partied on the floor with us at the Sala on Saturday - - that was funnnnn. So. We're crazy excited about a few things coming up - first, on October 26, we get to play our highly exclusive and rarely witnessed acoustic set at the opening of "Beyond Feminism" at the Parisian Laundry art gallery in Montreal.

Then we're going into the studio to record our second album at our neighbourhood recording studio, the Hotel2Tango. We're thinking March - sounds good, yeah?

We'd love to see you before we disappear for a while

the news is that flickr is awesome

We want photos! Of last night and all the other nights we've spent together. We finally got organised and started a flickr group today so people can upload and share photos for all to see. You fabulous people often send us photos from shows, which we love, but we can't post them all on our site or our myspace so only a few people end up seeing them. And that's why god invented flickr (well, okay it was these two really cool people in san francisco that invented it, but still...)

here's the group:

you need an account, but its free and easy to start one. then you can upload pics
and send them to the group pool and everyone will see them. wonderful.

Can't wait to see what you've got for us.

and....we finally posted our zombie dancing video online yesterday. you need to see this:

We're back from Europe. We had an awesome time.
We drank a lot of wine and met a lot of sexy girls.
We also joined the likes of Ani Difranco and kd lang
when we graced the cover of lespress magazine.
We sure could get used to this kind of thing...

March 11, 2005

Our very first cover. We're very proud.

Crazily enough, we were voted the number one album of the year by The Advocate.
