New Album

Baba Yaga shirts online! 

We made a bunch of awesome shirts for our tour, but since it's cancellation, we decided to put them up online.  We usually don't like to put shirts up for sale online, as a way to convince you to come to the show to get one, but we made an exception this time for obvious reasons.

They're all up on our bandcamp page.

Everything else there is FREE SHIPPING, by the way, in the USA.  So if you'd like a CD, vinyl, DVD, shirt, or comic book, go nuts.

Tour cancellation 

Well it seems like all the popular kids are doing it, so we thought we'd fall in line. The remainder of our spring tour has been cancelled (save the Washington DC and Lancaster PA shows in April, which may still happen depending on how all this shakes out). 

We had high hopes, but it has gotten to the point where it is incredibly unwise for us to stay on the road, for all of our health. We certainly don't want to be unknowing carriers, and a potential news story of "Small band carriers COVID-19 all over the USA" isn't the kind of headlines we'd like. So it is with very heavy hearts (and a few wet eyes) that we cancel this tour. 

However, we will try to reschedule all of these shows once this thing blows over, so consider this a rain check, not a pure cancellation indefinitely. 

In the meantime, we will be doing a few things: 

1) tomorrow we will put the Baba Yaga t-shirts we made up online. So if you want one, you can get one. $20, free shipping anywhere in the USA. 

2) we are going to try to do some live streaming shows! This way we can all attend a PV concert from the safety of our underground cement quarantine bunkers. We'll have open requests for songs, auction off the painting and mail it to whoever wins, and overall try to have a good time. 

3) Elizabeth is going to have a big Etsy sale, so if prints or art was on your mind, wait a few days and that'll be live. 

This is a potentially scary time, but do not panic. Panicking leads to fear, fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, and hate (as Yoda teaches us) leads to suffering. Stay safe, stay wise, think of others, be kind, and understand that as a planet we are in this together. 

Love you all.

 

Home 

Though we have one last full band show on March 5 in New London, CT at the Oasis Pub at 8 PM, our tour is now finished.  This shot was taken after our last show in Williamsport, and we were all happy/sad it was finished.  This was the first time we finished a tour where I wished we had a few more dates on the road.  All good things must come to an end.  Still!  We will definitely do this again in the future.  No idea when, but the full band Pocket Vinyl will return!

West Coast Tour dates announced! 

We just announced a bunch of tour dates working our way to the west coast, up and down the west coast, and then driving back to CT.  It's a big 6 week tour from March 12 through April 19.  

Head to our tour dates page and plan your schedule.

It will likely be a while until we can make it back out to the west coast, btw, so take advantage of this tour now.

This tour will be our "normal" live act of just Elizabeth and myself, not with the full band like our dates from Feb. 20 through Feb. 29.  But we will be returning to our "songs out of a hat" set structure where you, the audience, will decide what songs we will play.  You can request an old favorite, a brand new one, or pick one out of a hat.  It's tons of fun and every show is completely unique.  Maybe we'll play all b-sides?  Or Protagonist in full?  It's all based on the audience.  

 

Announcing: FULL BAND TOUR! 

We have wanted to do this for a very long time.  From Feb. 20 through Feb. 29, we'll be on tour with Straight to VHS, and Tim and Jay (their drummer and bassist) are going to play with Elizabeth and I during our sets.  We've already played some local CT shows with them in the past, and it's been fantastic.  It will be a very memorable and great show, unlike anything else we've done before.   

Feb. 20 - Saratoga Springs, NY - Desperate Annie's 
Feb. 21 - Buffalo, NY - Milkie's Elmwood Lounge 
Feb. 22 - Mansfield, OH - The Electric Co. 
Feb. 23 - Lansing, MI - Mac's Bar 
Feb. 24 - Moundsville, WV - Thunderbird's 
Feb. 25 - Richmond, VA - The Boy's House (house show) 
Feb. 27 - Winston-Salem, NC - Monstercade 
Feb. 28 - Roanoke, VA - The Spot on Kirk 
Feb. 29 - Williamsport, PA - Winter Wind Down Fest

Mark your calendars!  This will be a fantastic experience.

Also, if you don't know Straight to VHS, I highly recommend you find their album "Friend Music" (available streaming everywhere).  It's a great punk record, and one of my favorite albums of 2019. 

Lastly, Happy New Year, everyone!

CrAzY eLiZaBeTh'S Annual Art Sale! 

40% to 50% off everything!  Sale ends at midnight on Monday Dec. 2!

 

Step right up! Step right up! See the world's CrAzIeSt woman: Elizabeth from Pocket Vinyl! *points cane towards Elizabeth*

What makes her so CrAzY?! Well, sonny boy, I'm glad you asked! *winks* It goes a little something....like this:

*ba dum, ba dum bum BUM*

Elizabeth was a normal girl
Who made art all around the world
How good was her art, you say?
Why, better than anything you could make!

I kid! But honestly she was
The thing that made the town a-buzz!
Her paintings captured nature's eye
And even made the monarchs cry!

But one day while painting a bear
Some oil paint got in her hair
And then it dripped into her mouth
And oops! Looks like she's poisoned now!

The paint sure got into her brain
And frankly, made her go insane!
It took away her ability
For financial responsibility!

And now for one week every year
Her art prices are crystal clear

TOWNSPERSON: "40 to 50 percent off?!
There must be some mistake here?" *cough*

BACK TO ERIC:
There's no mistake, my coughing friend!
That's the right price, I'm quite certain
Marked down so low, you'll squeal with glee
That's CrAzY eLiZaBeTh'S guarantee!

*Song finishes, Eric is breathing hard, and the entire crowd, including you, rushes into Elizabeth's art store squealing with glee. Please follow this stage direction and go there now*

"The Touring Test" book OUT NOW! 

Today is a fantastic day, because not only are we leaving for a 5+ week tour, Elizabeth's "The Touring Test" book is officially out now!

If you'd like to pick up a copy yourself, they're easily found right here.

Or some to a show of ours, as we will have them at our merch table.

Elizabeth said this is her favorite thing she's ever done.  I am so incredibly proud of her, and this is likely the first of many more books to come out in the years to come.

"The Touring Test" physical book! 

Elizabeth grew up reading comic collections like Calvin and Hobbes, Zits, Far Side, Get Fuzzy, and a lot of those great newspaper comics.  They all influenced her to become an artist in a huge way.  She always wanted to start a comic, and then she did 2 years ago.  It's called the Touring Test, and most of you reading this know about it.  

Now, she's collected all those online comics, plus some new exclusive long form ones, into a physical book.  Or, she's trying to!  

We just launched a Kickstarter campaign for it, and with your help, we can make it a reality.

 

The first 100 backers will get personalized drawings in their books, so act fast if that's something you'd like.

Thank you all for the support and encouragement.  You make it possible for us to do so many artistic things.  You are our bosses, and we're glad you still like us.

 

"Seeing Your Reflection In The Baptism Water" music video 

Here's a new music video.  This is one of our favorite songs.  We sadly don't get to play it live very often.  Due to it's length and musical complexity, I haven't found a great way to transfer it to solo piano.  Perhaps one day I'll crack the code.  Until then, enjoy the video:
