And now for the Bad News: Amber Gorda will be leaving us in May to move to Ohio, of all places. The break is amicable and we fully support her decision to go, but she will be greatly missed. If you look really hard you might even see Dawn getting misty-eyed.

We're looking to make the most of the next few months that she'll still be around, and are set on continuing our little band and reverting to our original format as a three piece when she goes.  Why not get another guitarist, you may ask? 

Because Amber's shoes are that fuckin' big, bitch.

La Gorda is officially back in action this month, with our first bar gig in ages on NOVEMBER 20 at STACCATO MUSIC LOUNGE.

In addition to ending our official hiatus, those of you attending the show will also see our new guitarist AMBER in action and be some of the first peeps to catch our new sound as a four piece. It's a Saturday night, we come on at 9, you haven't seen us in ages and given the upcoming holidaze and travel plans you will likely not get another chance to see us till 2005. So no excuses: GET YER ASSES OUT TO STACCATO'S ON NOVEMBER 20!!! Or Gary Busey will bite your face off.Collapse )

2006 18th Street NW
Washington, DC 20009
$5, 21+. Doors at 7.

We've been in hibernation mode as of late but things are stirring beneath the surface.

We've taken on a new guitarist and are working out the kinks of transitioning from a three-piece guitar-bass sound to a two-guitar sound. Things are going well, but more slowly than I'd like... Lying low makes me antsy and I'm itching to get back into full swing again; I need to learn to bide my time.

In other news, La Gorda now has a Myspace Account! To make things more interesting I've added three clips from songs previously unavailable online: Happy Day Driving, Hot or Not, and Murder on the Playground. The recordings are from our stint at WMUC Third Rail Radio back in May. So do take a listen and add us to yer friends list pleeeze!
