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,

Josh

Beaver Tap Benefit for the Sea Creatures (No Cover) 8PM!

A.P Des Moines- IOWA
 Des Moines Iowa's 47th most popular band New Member Charles Playing a show this Wednesday (9/25/2013) at one of the cities favorite watering holes The Beaver Tap. To the excitement of children everywhere they will be playing 2 sets from 8-10 pm central standard time, but thats not the most exciting news about the event which features no cover charge at the door. New Member Charles long known for their giving nature ( see 2009 taco fest )will be playing to benefit Sea Creatures and their crisis with the sharks and other bad things. 


Dan and Chystal giving high fives to some displaced sea creatures.

Proceeds generated from the cover charge collected at the door (no cover) will go to these Sea Creatures and their families. "Sea creatures are responsible for keeping the sea in order and are in danger everyday from the evil sharks." Said Josh Kaufman, the arrogant lead man of the band. He added "If you don't come you don't care and if you don't care you can kiss the recent unprecedented canned tuna and shrimp prices goodbye." 
Their bass player Chris "Bass man" Lachky added " Its pretty special because all of our proceeds from this show (no cover) will go to help these ignorant sea creatures. More importantly it will help to eliminate their most fearsome predator the shark, and as we have all learned sharks are evil much like Gargoyles." 
Help us eliminate this pest.

This isnt the first time New Member Charles has helped out. Many people (22) will remember the smash hit "Benefit for Frank" which raised 8 dollars to help Frank and raised nationwide awarness about his (Frank) Story. The bands drummer Dan Tripp, who is a Marine Biologist by day added to this sentiment on the importance of sea creatures. "With a little luck we can raise a few bucks at the door (no cover) and help clean up the sea creatures' habitat and maybe eliminate 10-20 thousands sharks so the sea creatures can enjoy a stress free life. This is important because we need the sea cretures to sing us underwater songs that will make us happy." He continued, "New Member Charles was founded on these songs the sea cretures sing and its about time we give back."

No Cover!

 And give back they will, every penny earned on cover this Wednesday (no cover) at the Beaver tap (at 8 pm) goes to the sea creatures. Perhaps you could learn a little bit from this bands music and more importantly from their charatable actions. "We have never been about the money, it has always been about the message and the sea creatures." Chris "bassman" Lachky added.
