Is TPT on the menu?

It’s been a while since our last blog, so we have lots of updates. First, I feel like I should say something about the picture above. We had a great time last night (10-4-2014) playing at Dan McGuinness in Edmond, Oklahoma. Of course, how could we not love the marquee? Every time someone gives us a questionable look (often accompanied by, “huh?”) when we tell them the band’s name, it affirms our belief that we made a good choice. Nearly everthing is wrong about this sign, which is why it is so perfect. Just think, there had to be at least a few people that drove past this sign and though, “Wow, Dan McGuinness has a live 10 pound turtle.” Or maybe they thought, the Saturday night dinner special is a live 10 pound turtle. By the way, the fact that “turtle” is singular on the sign is the piece de resistance. You know there was at least one person who thought, “damn, I better hurry up and get in there before they sell that 10 LB turtle."

In other news, Ten Pound Turtles recorded the last 3 tracks of our debut CD and have begun to play a few of them at our shows. So far, the feedback has been very positive. All that is left is final mixing, mastering, and CD production. Check back soon for more details!
