Paul Haga’s Cat Turns 2
Paul Haga of Concentual announced on Facebook Sunday that “Someone turned TWO today! ” Speculation, based on keen research journalism skills, leads me to believe that he was referring to his cat, Yuri. Happy Birthday Yuri from the staff at SiaNet Radio.
Concentual will be releasing a new CD, File Under: Rock ‘n Roll later this month with a CD release party scheduled for July 28th at Bunkers in Minneapolis. This is the first in a series of EPs the band plans to release over the next 18 months. You can get a sneak peak and purchase the first single, Sister, now.
Concentual is the scheduled guest on the SiaNet Radio’s Clubhouse Show on Tuesday, July 24th. Tune in to hear more. Maybe Paul will tell us more about Yuri.
Little Man Appears on The Choo Choo Bob Show.
Little Man recently had a chance to be a part of the filming of an episode of the Choo Choo Bob Show. The show is currently in the process of making 46 new episodes and plan to have a new website up soon.
As far as I know the show airs on Channel 45 at 9am on a Saturday late summer or early this fall. The title of the show has something to do with rain.
