Tender Tots in a Blender

Blog entry by

Hello Vanguardian Community!

How’s your summer going? Are you spreading joy and cheer and making strangers smile on a daily basis?

Oh, how is ours going? well, we’re so glad you asked because we have had a amazing summer and have an action-packed rest of the year planned (a full fall?). Let us tell you, that we want absolutely nothing more than to make each and every one of you a very integral part of the party. We’ll supply the music, Joe Mayo!

First off, we can announce that our not-so-Tender Hearts are playing the Blender Theatre – 127 East 23rd Street – on August 31st at 6:15pm. It’s an all ages (finally, we know!) early show and we are able to get you all in if you RSVP. You heard us, we’ll put everybody on the list – All you have to do is reply to this email (

m ). Pass this email to friends and have them RSVP too!

Also, next Friday, August 21st, we are partying with our good friends You Can Be a Wesley and the Ambassadors at Trash Bar in Williamsburg. Show starts at 8pm and there’s an open bar from 8-9pm. Tater Tots! We actually hit the stage at 10:45pm for those of you with tight schedules. Have your people contact our people, k?

More exciting news on the way. You probably knew that already, though, right?

With love and admiration in the city,

The Vanguard
