On Friday, December 10th, The Slip played a set at the SIRIUS Satellite Radio studios in NYC. This exclusive, one hour long, in-studio set will first be aired on Christmas Eve (12/24) at noon and 9pm on SIRUS Channel 17. Following these airings, songs from the set will be in rotation on a number of channels, only on SIRIUS.
In more band news, The Slip’s NYE show at the Narrows Center for the Arts in Fall River has Sold Out. Tickets are still available, however, for Lupo’s @ the Strand on December 29th in Providence with John Brown’s Body. This show is a food/coat drive. The RI Food Bank is taking donations, so the band encourages fans to bring 3 cans of food and/or a jacket to get a free signed poster. On Tuesday, December 28th, The Slip will be at Southpaw in Brooklyn with local rockers Dirty on Purpose.
The Slip won The 2004 Heineken USA / ASCAP Foundation Grant for Best Pop/Rock Song in Boston for “Children of December” – more info can be found at ascap.com.
