Dansettes to Go Through Changes :(

From their MySpace bulletin:

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Our show this coming Wednesday would be an exciting one under any circumstances, as Country-fried surf legends Southern Culture On The Skids have invited us to open for them in one of the best sounding rooms in New York. Clearly, a recipe for a party!

But this event will also have an element of history to it, as it will be the last time the Dansettes perform in their hometown as the classic "Jennie!Jaime!Leah!" lineup. After Wednesday, Jaime -- who has delivered such staples of the Dansettes catalog as "Oh My," "Forty Days," "Don't Tempt Me," and "Don’t You Ever" -- will be doing just two more sets with us, both of which are in Detroit.

So come on out, New York City, and witness the end of an era! (You don’t even have to stay up too late on a work night.)

Wednesday, May 16th
The Mercury Lounge
217 East Houston Street, NYC

7:30 – Jule Brown
9:30 – Southern Culture on the Skids
$17 at the door
$15 advance at TicketWeb:

(Thanks to everyone who has inquired about auditions! The response has been big, and we have gotten in touch with many very talented ladies so far. But it’s not too late to throw your hat in -- or the hat of someone you know. Write, and we’ll give you the lowdown.)

Indeed, here is the original blog post about auditions.

So go see these gals in their original form next Wednesday. Unfortunately, I won't be there as I will be attending my first Elvis Costello & the Impostors show that night.
