WE ARE PLAYING BFD 2013 AT SHORELINE AMPHITHEATRE.
This is absolutely amazing, and we love each and every one of you for all of your support that has gotten us this far.
If you’re going to BFD, check us out on the Soundcheck Stage with Tumbleweed Wanderers, Finish Ticket, Picture Atlantic and so many more.
The main stage has Silversun Pickups, Of Monsters and Men, Passion Pit, 30 Seconds to Mars and AWOLNATION.
Speaking of exciting, both of our albums are available as free digital download (or pay what you can) over on our BANDCAMP page. Go share and enjoy!
Also, TICKETS TO BFD ARE STILL AVAILABLE!
Q:I was out running errands a few days ago and that old song "Melt With You" by Modern English came on the radio. That's one of the few 80s songs that I actually like and as I listened to it, I decided that I need to hear you guys cover it sometime. You would make it even better.
We promised an acoustic cover if we hit 50 shares on that facebook post that has 61 shares now. So there’s that.
I’ll throw it in, and we’ll have a vote! :D
Curious Quail had a little house show and it was awesome.
Also, Matt and Jess have an apartment with an amazing 70’s vibe and I covet all their furniture.
We played a really awesome acoustic house show last Saturday and kicked it off with a little Spaceteam because in case you didn’t know we are kind of in love with that game.
JRSD shot these totally amazing pictures and we’ve been so swept up in the BFD contest that we forgot to post them. “What BDF contest? You mean I can help you as a band play an amazing major radio sponsored music festival headlined by bands like Silversun Pickups, Of Monsters and Men and Passion Pit?” You ask?
Why, click here for details and share the ever-living shit out of this photo please. :D
Seriously. We are in first, and you can vote once a day until May 3rd. This would be a huge deal for us. Any help would be amazing.
Also - as promised, if we hit 50 shares on that photo in the above link we are going to take requests from those who shared and record an acoustic cover video of ANY song.
You have the power.
THIS IS THE COOLEST THING THAT’S HAPPENED ALL WEEK. YOU KNOW I’M NOT EXAGGERATING BECAUSE CAPS LOCK IS TRUTH. THANK YOU TURTLEROBOT!! - People. We’re still in first and it’s kind of amazing. Go check out what sorcery we’re talking about here. We have this crazy chance of playing the opening slot at Live 105’s BFD. The headliners are 30 Seconds to Mars, Silversun Pickups and Of Monsters and Men. Like, this is a big deal. Please go vote for us if you can!
I went to the BFD local band poll to vote for The Family Crest.
I came back having fallen in love with Curious Quail.
(Though I do still love you, Family Crest, promise.)
We have a chance to play BFD 2013.
Please go vote for us!

I could give you all the reasons you should, but seriously look at us. We’re adorable. Like kittens, when they’re super young and their eyes are permanently wide as if to soak in every ounce of the world so they can grow into adult cats that rarely have their eyes open and are bored by the concept of existence.
Ok, so that simile took a few turns in the wrong direction.
You get the point.
This is a pretty huge music festival, we were selected to potentially be a part of it and we really want it.
Help? Reblog, share on FB, vote every day, bribe family, etc.
HERE - we’ll sweeten the deal.
Watch our latest upload on Youtube:
(Space)Teambuilding With the Quails!”
Then tell me you don’t want to vote for us.
We get asked a LOT how we manage our sometimes seven+ member roster, so we have created this video to give insight into the Quails Team Building exercises.
PARENTAL ADVISORY: There is mention of the ‘Fluglehorn’ in this video.
We need to have a talk.
This prevalence of “I hate my body” and “No one will love me” shit has got to go.
Every time you reblog or post self-deprecating content you are reinforcing a false truth that is having a toxic effect on your brain.
You may not look like a model, and you may be shy, and you may feel that no one “gets” you but dude – that’s totally normal.
Focus on what makes you happy, make the most of what you have and exude some positive energy. It will go a long way to bringing the type of people you should have into your life.
Like, not to be all “when life gives you lemons” and shit but seriously. No one is ever going to love you if you hate yourself.
Go be awesome.
We sat down with Geneva from Creative Control Magazine at the Metreon Food Court last week for an interview, an improptu acoustic set in Yerba Buena Gardens, and more importantly, a rousing game of Cards Against Humanity. Hilarity ensued.
