An Oldie but a Goodie

While we’re busy writing some new music, we don’t want to disappear from the face of the planet.

Speaking of disappearing from the face of the planet…has anyone seen this?  Some of the most spectacular abandoned places in the world.  Incredibly interesting.

Anyway, I digress.

We’ve played a few shows, had a few laughs over the past few years and we wanted to share them.  We were saving this for a rainy day.  While (at least where we’re at) it’s not raining so much.  In fact, we’re looking at about 8 inches of snow on the ground on our way to 10 or 12.

Speaking of which…I have seen more pictures of grocery stores and empty bread aisles in the past 24 hours than I can ever remember.  Please, explain this craze to me.

I digress again…

Here’s a video of our song “Shy Away.”  We recorded this song in Nashville at the SAE studios with our good friend Kyle Ferguson along with the help of Brett Baird.  We knocked this thing out in about two days and had an absolute blast doing it.  The trip and recording sessions also served as inspiration for our song “Nashville” which was later to be recorded for Too Far to Feel

Anyway…enough dilly dally.  Here it is.  Enjoy and as usual, please feel free to share, but only if you like it.

‘Retrospective’ Set for Online Release

Borrow Tomorrow - RetrospectiveGreetings!

We’re very pleased to announce that Borrow Tomorrow’s newest EP is available for download on the band’s website. The best part is it’s totally free. We wanted to try something a little different this time and launch the tracks digitally first. We’ll have some physical copies of the disc for those of you who still tend to gravitate toward that tangible “something to hold onto” when it comes to your music (myself included), however archaic that mentality may be. Hey, even vinyl is making a comeback! In any regard, this has been a long time coming, so we wanted to make it as easy as possible for our incredibly supportive fans to get their hands on the new recordings.

Coming Friday, June 4:

Borrow Tomorrow – Retrospective (2010)
1. Shy Away
2. Looking for You
3. The Highway One Bridge Song
4. Wicker Park Suite

Visit retrospective.borrowtomorrowband.com to download your copy.

Also, since this recording process spawned a Boto tune called “Nashville,” we wanted to share this cool version captured live at the Double Door in Chicago from this past March. Check it out below:

Listen to Nashville!

That’s all for now! Keep rockin’.

Boto Party Bus to Chicago

Magical Mystery Tour
Dying to take you away, take you today. Note: Actual bus will most certainly differ from psychadelic MMT bus. We apologize in advance.

On Saturday, March 20, Borrow Tomorrow will take the stage at one of Chicago’s most famous venues–the Double Door–and we want you to be there!

So we’ve come up with an idea to encourage our always supportive Indianapolis-area fans to join us–a chartered party bus to and from the event.

Let me say it again. A chartered party bus. One more time. Party. Bus.

Here are the awesome details. A ticket gets you the following:

-A seat on the bus (of course, with all the dancing you’ll be doing, we make no promises that you actually use it)
-Beer and Beverage during the ride
-Admission to the Double Door for the show and the pre-party with the band in the DD Dirt Room
-A sweet Boto t-shirt to mark the occasion
-One hell of a good time

How much? $40 per person. Hang on, before you say “cheese and rice–that’s a lot,” think about it. Gas to and from Chicago alone would cost upwards of 40 bucks (and if you’re driving yourselves you’re certainly not partying), no hotel necessary, your $8 admission to the DD is comped, throw in a killer t-shirt, and all the beer and cocktails on the bus you can handle! That, my friends, is a steal.

Now, we’ve crunched the numbers (well, we didn’t personally because we can’t really count that high), and we need 50 PEOPLE on board to make it happen.

To help facilitate and gauge interest, we’ve created a Facebook group. We want you to join and tell your friends about it (and have them join, too!) as a sign of interest on your part! If the numbers are there, we will then contact you (unobtrusively, we promise) to follow up. If you’re not a Facebooker but want to say, “Hey guys–I’m in,” shoot one of us an email. I’ll nominate myself (chris@borrowtomorrowband.com) and Andrew (andrew@borrowtomorrowband.com).

Our cut-off date is March 7 so please, don’t hesitate. Start spreading the word immediately. We adore our Indy faithful and WANT YOU IN CHICAGO ON THE 20TH!
