Well Cats and Kittens,
Weekends donâ€™t get much bigger than this past one.
The first ever LIVE ThesePeople event. I really donâ€™t think it could have gone any better. We packed the Belmont, we projected some classic sketches, we remembered all of our lines… it was great. PLUS we had amazing support from Elle and the Fonts, Lightning Love, and Millions of Brazilians. Then just as predicted DJ Grand Dad Crunk played â€œPogoâ€ by Digitalism (my most played song on my iTunes) I shouted the words like a drunken idiot and it was fantastic. Oh yeah, and there was confetti EVERYWHERE.
For those of you who made it out, thank you SO MUCH, itâ€™d of been nothing without you and we hope to do it again real soon. For those of you who couldnâ€™t be there, get some folks together, secure a venue and weâ€™ll come to your town. We have a box of DVDs to sell and there are still lots of states I havenâ€™t Karaoked in.
In the next couple weeks weâ€™ll be posting pictures and some of the live material from the show so it can feel like you were there, and TODAY weâ€™re sharing with you the NEW SKETCH we debuted on that special night.
â€œKeep Cats Off the Streets.â€ This sketch was made because we donated the results of the raffle we had at the live show to the Michigan Humane Society, however we feel the sketch stands up pretty good in any context, and is my favorite thing weâ€™ve made in a while. I hope you love it.
Check it out here:
Speaking of DVDs… we have them for sale now! Right here on the site! $10 a piece for a DVD loaded with our favorite sketches, commentary, outtakes, interviews, all sorts of cool crap!!! And every DVD order comes with a FREE ThesePeople sticker which is also totally awesome.
And weâ€™ve got Tshirts for sale too! Soon weâ€™ll have pictures of all these things up on the site so you know what youâ€™re buying. The DVD artwork is super sexy though, youâ€™re going to love it.
Enjoy the new sketch and thanks for making us want to make videos.
Happy Motherâ€™s Day,
MaTT and ThesePeople
