|Corporal is coming to town.
Monday June 18 at Schuba’s in Chicago Monday June 25th at Fontana’s in NYC
Hello friends. This e-mail begins with the sad news of the passing of Ray’s father this week. Our love and condolences go to the Rizzo family and to Ray who got the news as he was preparing to play with Glen Hansard on the Jimmy Fallon show, a performance that became a fitting tribute to Ray’s pop.

Corporal has had a busy Spring. In the past month some sweet blogs like ifc.com and Magnet have featured our song “Glory” and said nice things about us. A new pressing of our first album will be available at the Chicago and New York shows, and an upcoming 7″ with both versions of Obama (one with a new re-mix by Jim Smith) and Effortless on the B side is also in the works.
With so few occasions for us to play, we are looking forward to these two blow out shows. We couldn’t be more pleased to share our night in Chicago with The Blind Staggers and friends of ours from Louisville who will close the night playing Fleetwood Mac’s Rumour s album. The following week in New York, we will warm the underbelly of the Lower East Side playing a show at Fontana’s with The Parlour Suite opening and a closing set by our band of brothers Less the Band. Details for the shows are below – please encourage your friends in either city to com e and enjoy the night with us! Matt Scobee will be on the bass and other surprises are certain.
