Tuesdays With Lazerbeak

LazerbeakLazerbeak, News

Welcome back to a very special Tuesdays With Lazerbeak. Today we are unveiling the brand new Doomtree Spring/Summer line of gear!!! Figured we could finally make the announcement now that the snow has melted in Minnesota for good this year (did I just jinx us?). We’ve got a ton of new season specific clothing and accessories to get you ready for the beach! Oh man, is this already starting to sound like a Sears commercial? Let’s start things off with a new CD and slowly ease into the department store talk. It is my great joy to present to you the first ever Doomtree Karaoke disc!

That’s right, 14 of your favorite Doomtree HITZ on an official CD+G karaoke disc (for all of you die hard karaoke-ers). Created by our webstore’s own Grace Zimmerman (Stef’s mom), this thing is the real deal. Grace and her husband Doug have been diligently running our webstore since Day 1, and they’ve been doing pro karaoke since way before that. Grace often makes her own karaoke CDs to bring out to events, frequently visiting nursery homes over the weekends and hosting karaoke wedding receptions all over the place (Sims’ wedding was the best). When she told us she wanted to make an official Doomtree Karaoke disc we simply could not refuse. Also comes with a free download of all 14 video files, so you can play them from any computer in addition to the karaoke machines. Very limited supplies and only available at the Doomtree Webstore. $9.99 right HERE.

Alright, now let’s jump into the rest of the summer gear! It’s our first ever attempt at a seasonal line, so bear with me on all the cheeseball selling points. Click any of the images below for more details and ordering info.

BAM! There you have it, the first ever Doomtree seasonal clothing and accessory line. We’re gonna try to do this twice a year from here on out, so get ready for the exclusive Doomtree snow blower coming out next fall!

OK, let’s get back into some music news. Last week the good people over at Blackbook premiered a sweet new lyric video for Parts of Speech first single “Warsaw.” Created by the one and only Adam J. Dunn (check out tons more of his phenomenal work right HERE). Watch this and try to keep up with the breakneck lyrical spiritual miracle cereal raps.

Dess and the band are currently about a third of the way through their East Coast run. They’ll be playing Boston tonight and Brooklyn tomorrow, and you can get details and tickets for the whole tour right HERE. I stole a couple pictures off of Dessa’s Instagram feed to give you a brief recap of what’s gone down so far.

MOUNTAIN appears to be thriving in the bumper to bumper East Coast parking game. Very impressive.

Aby vs. Annie’s. Might be time to step up the Mom Snacks guys.

These dudes!!! The band is playing three separate shows in New York throughout the tour, which means they’ll get lots of quality time with Sick Trim co-founder Paper Tiger and his awesome new dog Winston.

I told you they were debuting a ton of new Parts of Speech material at these shows. Here’s the proof. Make sure you check out one of the remaining shows if you’re in the area. Tickets right HERE.

parts of speech vinyl

While those guys were gone grinding it out on the road, I got a call yesterday from Noiseland saying the Parts of Speech deluxe vinyl just came in! We only made a total of 500 on red vinyl, and they’re going fast. Make sure to hit up the pre-order right HERE to snag one.

Last week we announced the insane news that Sims and Astronautalis will be playing a joint headlining show together at First Avenue on June 14th, along with Mixed Blood Majority and Greg Grease. And now tickets have officially gone on sale to the public. Click the flyer below to grab them while you still can. Show of the summer!


Oh yeah, one other bit of show info. If you’re in the Twin Cities make sure to come out to Icehouse tomorrow night to catch the second installment of Marijuana Deathsquads’ “Music Rocks” Residency (Slam Dunk Edition). Lizzo and I will be opening up and playing a ton of new material off of LIZZOBANGERS, plus there will be constant and unrelenting slam dunk vizualz synced up to Squads’ entire set. It’s gonna be completely nutz. Click the flyer below for more info, and hopefully I’ll see a bunch of you out there.

OK, I’ll leave you with a couple Bonus Penny Pics, since I took a lot of heat for not including her in either of last week’s posts.

penny drummer girl

Little drummer girl. Already a natural. Hoping she can eventually step in as the percussionist in my Luther Vandross family tribute band. I’ve got the high bass covered.

gentle pets

Here we are practicing something I like to call “Gentle Pets” with Della the Dog. It consists of me attempting to explain the difference between a “gentle pet” and trying to poke Della’s eye out with one hand while ripping her ear off with the other. We’re making progress.

penny coozie

And lastly, here’s Penny hanging outside and soaking up the rays with her NEW DOOMTREE COOZIE!!!! ONLY $3.99 AT THE WEBSTORE!!!! See how good I am at sewing these posts up?

Alright, I hope you all have a wonderful week enjoying this awesome weather. I’ll see you next Tuesday for sure!
