A Posterior Post for Posterity

Thanks to the organizers and attendees of Thursdays on the Platz on August 4th. After the rain calmed down, it turned out to be a good show for a good group of people.

Thanks to Allison Huff at Luminescence Photography for capturing these pieces of time. Check out her other work at http://lpallison.com/

I can’t understand him, can you?

Over the past few months, there have been nearly three people who have asked for the lyrics to some of the Beards songs. Well, since that same traffic can regularly be found scouring every nook and cranny of the website looking for some update or piece of news, we figured it would be easy enough to just dump all the lyrics to the songs we will be playing this August 4th.

Of course, if you come here after the 4th, the words will still be here. They aren’t going anywhere.

Words and Words and Words and Words

4th of July

The Beards are many things to many people.

At our finest, we even make lovers fall deeper in love!


Whenever anyone asks what it’s like being a Beard, I remember the (slightly edited for content) words of the great Kanye West.

Because Life


Everybody Here

I wrote you a letter

I should have known better

the lines at the bottom say, “Sincerely, I love you.”

The whiskey is empty

Wine bottles are broken

I kept only one picture of you as a token. cropped-cropped-Beards-Stamp-1.jpg

Wind up

Then let the tension out.

Eyes Up

Don’t make this all about

You lost

The panic in your voice

You won

But you’re still fighting.

Of Things in the Past

Band Howlers 4 30

Howler’s show has come and gone. It is always such a strange experience to have people congregate at a place and time for the purpose (not the sole) of watching you sing and play music. Thank you to everyone who came out (few of which will read this, but perhaps).

Thanks to Blue Ruin, it was fun to play the double billing. Joining forces and audiences made for a good night all around.

Thanks to Ben for running sound; we will make it easier sooner, we promise.

A new song, “The Hero Dies at the End” has been added to the “Music” page. We hope you like it.

April 30, 2016 Howler’s Vermillion, SD

By the time you read this post, the show will probably have been long since played. Only the fond memories and distant melodies that those who attended will try to grasp on to so tightly will remain. “It’s okay,” you will tell yourself, “I didn’t miss anything.” But who are you trying to convince?

Maybe it’s not too late, though. Maybe you found us in time.
