Fringe Pipes Triumphant Return 

Back from our 3 year tour of every territory and province of Canada, we return triumphantly to our great motherland of Minneapolis to open for the great Christian Wheeler.  Our performance will feature special guests King Calderon and Wayne Train from Air Is Air.  New lineup, new songs, and we're all slightly less good-looking now (except for Christian, who is better looking). 

December 18, Icehouse MPLS 9:30pm

Let's kick it.

We have been working very hard in a little room with little light for many months.  We have struggled against power surges, tape hiss, electrical storms, and bouts of some unknown and mysterious illness.  Despite all of this:  we made something good.
