I love My shoooooooooooooo... new show update with Foxholes!

Hey Chauncey, we have a show coming up and we'd like you to attend.  The catch, it's free. That means you don't have to pay anything unless you want to grab a hot dog or an ice cold glass of beer. Think of it, at that price we could have one of our members blackout on stage (This almost never happens..sometimes) and it wouldn't cost you nuttin so it would totally be worth it. Oh and one more thing Foxholes have been nice enough to share the bill so this has turned into a fireworks extravaganza! Check out their music here.

On Wednesday, March 2nd we will be greasing up our instruments and bodies for one night only to play all of your favorites hits from the decades you know and love (mainly the current decade). No word yet on if the Foxholes will be greasing or using an alternative warm up method but they will also be playing songs from a decade. This will all go down around 9 pm at The Beaver Tap in the lush Beaverdale area of Des Moines Iowa, USA. We will also have a special going as it's our annual Ladies Night show, so bring a lady and you wont have to pay any cover.

"Did you say Ladies don't have to pay cover?"

That right Jeff Bazers no cover and also no cover for ladies and no cover for you if you bring a lady, and no cover for you if you don't bring a Lady. We have been creating music in the Des Moines area for over a half decade and when a marquee band like us drops insane deals like this you are stupid if you don't take advantage. Ok lets run this down again,

1. March 2nd 2016
2. Beaver Tap
3. New Member Charles
4. Foxholes
5. No cover
6. Ladies Pay no cover
7. Guys if you bring a lady no cover

11. Its at a bar so they sell beer and liquor
12. Your stupid if you don't come

"Why don't my other favorite bands have deals like this?"

We got a few more shows in the works in March and May as well as a newly mixed and mastered album that we will be releasing this spring so check back for updates in the coming weeks and we will update you with the information on the items mentioned in the beginning of this run-on sentence. 

Your dreams are as real as you make them, so make them good so they don't suck. -Poet

Come celebrate yappy Day with City Views New Member Charles.

Tonight is Yappy day come celebrate it with us as we return to the Vaudeville Mews. We are playing with the French Dials and Universe Contest. We are going to tune up our strings for this one. Doors at 8:30 cover 5 bones linky's here and here.
Try as they will, try as they might, who steals Yappie's gold wont live through the night.

We are also proud to announce that City View's Chad Taylor recently did a stunning bio on us in the current issue of City View. In honor of this we will no longer be known as "New Member Charles". We are now instead going by "City View's Own New Member Charles Taylor". We though about it for a while and decided it's going to help our chances at the Grammy we are going to get with our next album to be released late spring/ early summer. Here a link to the article and you can also read it on news stands now. 
Have a cool day bitches!

Return to Vaudeville Mews

Dear Vaudeville Mews, Its us New Member Charles, we've missed you. If you take us back we promise we will stop sleeping with your cousin Vickie. It will be tough to go without the sweet smell of her deodorant but we feel its worth the sacrifice. We long to step on your stage and light the goddamn planet on fire for another 32 minutes and for that we will no longer have sex with your cousin. Winter can be a tough time, things happen, people sleep with peoples cousin's. Happens every day, just ask your cousin. And so as the end of a particularly harsh winter comes into the view of our dimly lit headlight (one headlight) we have our sights set on getting back to your loving arms so you can hold us like a little baby. A little bearded baby spitting up foamy PBR and Jameson. As Jonna said to the ark in Romulus 3:13 "it shall be done if you keep away from my cousin."
It is with great excitement that i am able to announce New Member Charles will be playing there first original Vaudeville Mews set in over 6 months on Monday April 7th. The High Energy Universe Contest from Lincoln will be driving the ship while The French Dials will be opening and a lil Charles will be smashed in between. Consider this show a sonic Oreo. After a cold winter of longer shows and working on our new record we are ready to suckle on your bosoms and get back to playing the shows we play best, even if it means we have to sleep with someone else's cousin. Doors at 8:30 5 bones cover. Linky here
 I can feel the pounds falling off of me.
Not so goddamn fast Abe Froman, we are also playing a cover gig at the Mews this sat Feb 22??? Your damn right we are, and while it wont be the Charles oldies but goldies that your used to, we will be playing a quick set of 70's tunes. See the previous post for the deets or click here, but it will be a great time with a bunch of local bands and DJ's playing some 70's tunes for your eyes only!!!

I would also like to thank the large drunk dancing man for entertaining us at the beaver tap last night while we entertained you and he entertained us all (lots of entertaining going on). We don't know what your name was because we couldn't understand you, so we decided to call you Scheels because that's what your beer stained shirt said. Well from all of us at New Member Charles INC thanks Scheels you will live on in our hearts for weeks, hopefully that cab got you home.

Don't sleep with your friends' cousins,
