    The Red Herring will be the first featured band to perform for the premiere of The Late Night Rad News Sketch Show on December 3rd at 10:30 p.m. at Bang.Studio, 457 N. Fairfax Ave., Los Angeles, CA, 90036 where you can anticipate the reemergence of Big Dave’s mad comedic skilz in a risqué fake commercial! We just had our dress rehearsal over the holiday weekend where we got a sneak peak at the hilarity that is to come and are totally pumped and honored to be joining this incredible cast and crew.

    Directed/Produced by Lizzie Czerner, The Late Night Rad News Sketch Show is a political sketch comedy show in the SNL format: Complete with fake commercials, fake news, digital short, live musical guest and host! Musical guest THE RED HERRING, digital short by MC DIRT NAP AND THE CASKET CREW, fake commercial by Bill Forster / Jim Sorenson, with guest star MITCHELL ROCHE and special guest host Emmy Award winner PETER MURRIETA (founder of Bang Comedy Theater, Writer, Executive Producer on shows for Cartoon Network, Disney & The WB.)

    Brooke Trout and Big Dave were happy to perform an acoustic set for Nette for Vet’s Book Drive at The Talking Stick in Santa Monica. You can check out the performance 6 minutes into part two of the ustream archive: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/18465743. We even had Gary McGrath join us up on stage for a blues jam on Muddy Waters’ “I’m Ready.” Thanks to everyone in attendance Nette was able to raise funds and collect 110 books for a local veteran’s hospital! Her next event is another annual favorite at The Talking Stick on December 9th so mark your calendars! It’s a Toy’s For Tots show and admission is a new unwrapped toy! http://nrt4t.eventbrite.com/

    The Red Herring got its first radio play for our pending full album release on Nette Radio for our song “Instigate” to rave reviews. You can get your own copy of the song and check out the other songs from our EP on Itunes, CDBaby and several other digital vendors online! The Red Herring’s debut EP features the engineering mastery of Dan Hughley of Crazyville Productions. The four tracks on the EP include “Albert II” – about the first monkey to successfully orbit the Earth only to crash land. “The Well” is like a Pink Floyd sundae with ZZ topping; a blues rock duet with Big Dave and Brooke Trout. The other tracks include the raucous “Mad Tea Party” which has been compared to songs by Hole, and “Instigate” which has been compared to Suburban Lawns.

    We just finished our mastering for the full album release thanks to Ryan Clement at Mix Makers. Our awesome album artwork by our resident illustrator and drummer Vincent Perea has just been approved and we are now awaiting the physical copies of the album to be manufactured. Special thanks to Ian McNulty and Stephen Bennett over at Nationwide Disc in Texas for helping us get that going!

    Although we do not endorse the throwing of fish without the support of a net, we do love the new muppet movie!
