v3 – Feet Stomp

Hello Friends

Last weekend we played a room that we’ve come to know intimately over our time together. A room that has provided us with some of the best times we’ve collectively known.

A year ago that night we played the very same room, on a similarly rain drenched evening, and we would like to thank every person that shared in either of those experiences, and especially those who supported us through the year that led us back. We are so grateful for your continuing support and for sharing in this thing we love so much.

We’d also like to give a shout out to The Crutch who played with us on the night. We hope to do it again soon.

Here’s a brief glimpse at the night.

We’ll see you next time.

Hey all,

Back from bean town and oh it felt so nice. Our first excursion to the area was a pleasure. The lineup of acts was eclectic and intriguing, bringing different sonic landscapes to the stage at The Middle East Upstairs. The audience, filled with new ears, were welcoming and enthusiastic, making us feel right at home in a town not our own. We hope to see you all again real soon.

Below is the second video update from the Ishmael camp, with shots taken at our new favorite spot in Cambridge. Jordan shares his thoughts on the music of Ishmael as we take the chilled night air before our set.

There will be more fun stuff for us to share with you coming real soon, so be sure to check back.

Love, peace, and chicken grease.

Nick and Ish

Hi there everybody in internet world! We are really excited to put up our new website! Things are going really well in the Ishmael camp. We just booked a show at the Middle East in Cambridge, MA for February 10th. Supposedly, its being billed as some sort of prog/post-rock night which should be fun for us. We have been working on a bunch of new stuff lately and we’re really excited for the future. In celebration of our new site and everything, Nick F. Pray our honorary fifth member put together a nice little video of us working on some new material and ends with some footage from our recent show at Sullivan Hall. Enjoy!!

See you guys soon,
