Well howdy! How are you? I’m great, thanks for asking. Did I ever tell you that we are doing work right now to re-vamp some design aesthetics and content uploads for this here website? I didn’t? Wow, shame on me. Well anyway, we are, and these things are in progress and if you, dear reader, have any suggestions for us regarding cool and interesting things you’d like to see added, well, there is this nifty little comment section below. Let us know as we always enjoy your thoughts. And finally, we are working to book shows in and around Portland and Washington. Keep checking back and I promise there will be regular updates. Ok. I guess we’ll talk soon then eh?
We are excited to share the stage with Tall As Rasputin and Animal R&R on Thursday.
TDW have a bunch of awesome surprises in store for everyone, but first we are trekking up to Washington for two shows this weekend. On Friday, we are playing at 122 Winslow Bar again with Anthony Tripp. and on Saturday, we are venturing up to Port Townsend for a gig at the Highway Twenty Roadhouse. click on the show flier below for more information:
That’s right! Tomorrow night, the thirteenth day of the second month of the two thousand eleventh year, anno domini, marks the first show featuring The Dirty Words at the prestigious Hawthorne Theatre in SE Portland. Sharing the bill on this momentous occasion, are up and coming Portland rock group, The Autonomics, as well as two groups new to the Portland area, The Neverdowells and Delayed Relay. Take a gander at the super spiffy show flier crafted from the mind and resources of TDW bassist, Scott “The Wayne” Page.
And if you needed one more reason to sway you to come join the excitement, this event coincides with guitarist Aaron’s 26th birthday. This is an ALL AGES show and starts early (7:30PM). We shall see all of your pretty faces tomorrow night!
