One year ago, on August 2nd, 2009, The Bachelorettes and Senryu vowed to spend the rest of their band lives together. Though that vow became void back in June at the last Bachelorettes show, we still celebrate this day with happy hearts. What follows is a glimpse of the past year that The Bach & Sen shared in holy band matrimony. Check out these pictures and videos and at the end of the post you can download both band’s vow songs and the Katie and the Bass Drums toast song!!!
All silliness aside, it was a really wonderful year of collaboration between two really special bands. We were so lucky to meet an amazing group of talented people that make up the Senryu family and we wish them the best in all their future endeavors.
ENJOY THE SONGS!!!!!
So, it’s been a wild ride. The Bachelorettes have cut an album, gone on tour, married Senryu, screenprinted tees, knitted wristbands, wrote songs about Jackson, and loved every minute of it. On June 10, we played our last show ever.
We have been so lucky to have William Patrick Butler as our official band photographer. He documented this show as well as so many other on his great blog, Scenes Around Jackson. One time we wrote a song for Patrick. It went something like this: “Ooh-wee-ooh. Thank you Patrick. Ooh-wee-ooh. You’re fantastic.” We still mean every word.
The show opened with a great set by Lizzie Wright Super Spaceship.
Lizzie recently returned from a tour with our pal Peter Squires and all her tour knowledge paid off as the set flowed smoothly and impressed everyone. She played a number of songs off her debut EP, November Tree.
We were so happy that our husBand, Senryu, could come all the way from Knoxville to play our last show with us. As usual, our men brought their costumes, energy, and theatrics.
Even as The Bachelorettes’ time draws to a close, Special Passenger Records has big plans for the coming year. Stay tuned for new releases from Dee Bird, Lizzie Wright Super Space Ship, and Dubb Nubb! And, never forget, you will always be our special passengers.
