We’re thrilled to be kicking off this tour in cahoots that Nashville sensation How I Became The Bomb!  Rest area stretching sessions, gear loading competitions, subway eating contests, trucker stop photo booths . . . it’s bound to be a celebration of open road revelry.  Not to mention one hell of a show every night!  Come check it out for yourself (and click to invite your friends on facebook!):

Part 2: New York, New York

Disco Bombing will seamlessly transition into the controlled chaos of one the nation’s biggest festivals in one of the world’s craziest cities — the CMJ Music Marathon in NYC!  CMJ is what some would call the “South By Southwest” of the east coast, showcasing thousands of artists from all over the world, including Phoenix, UNKLE, Dan Black,  Four Tet, and many, many, many, many more.  It’s a tornado of incredible talent and industry folks chasing each other’s tails.  So where do we fit in?

Oct. 19th, 10:30pm: Arlene’s Grocery
Oct 23rd, 9:30pm: The Studio @ Webster Hall
sponsored by 107.1FM “The Peak,” Venuszine, and popwreckoning!

Part 3:  Modern Vintage

While we’re in the biggest apple for CMJ, we’re going to spend a day in the studio with Patrick Ermlich and Eshy Gazit, producers from the multi-platinum studio The Cutting Room, and owners of their own label and production company, Modern Vintage Recordings.  These guys have produced everyone from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, to OK Go, to 30 Seconds To Mars.  It’s an honor to work with these folks, and we’re all eager to get in there and see what shakes loose!

Part 4: Not for the faint of heart!

This fall tour marks a new era for MDD: we are finally going to be with the incredible Wally Sparks and his futuristic electro-shock therapy traveling light circus!  Or in other words, we’re bringing our light show on the road!  We’ve looked forward to this day for a long time.  And once you go Wally Sparks, you never go back.  It’s . . . an experience.  We promise you won’t leave feeling normal.

Christian Carpenter aka Christian Rock

Our talented bassist and beloved brother, Christian Carpenter is hopping the next train to ROCK!

In September, 2010, he is leaving My Dear Disco and following his dream of living in the salty Bay Area.
CC will be missed here in Ann Arbor, but do not fear!  He will continue to rock out, so make sure to keep track of his up and coming musical projects.

My Dear Disco is currently working on new material and will be busting out some tunes and a ridiculous new show with legendary lighting artist, Wally Sparks.
Better keep a sharp eye on us and GET PUMPED!


Light shows ROCK.
