Rockin' with Brom Bones, Launch and more ...

Since we last checked in, The Sophisticates have been rather busy. Aside from a handful of gigs and some recorded stuff circulating out there on the internets, the band is adding a few new tunes to the repertoire and getting ready for a couple more shows.

Shows, you say? Yes, indeed. The Sophisticates are playing a special benefit on Saturday, March 26 at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Lancaster's Founder's Hall. Longtime scene stalwarts, Brom Bones are headlining the show, so be sure to get out.

The show starts at 6 p.m. and will be over at 9 p.m., which gives you plenty of wiggle room to plan all sorts of pre-Easter excursions in Lancaster, Pa. on March 26.

On April 22, The Sophisticates are scheduled to play in Lancaster's Launch Music Conference & Festival at Marion Court Room at 7 p.m. The band is only playing an abbreviated 30-minute set that night on an outdoor stage right off Duke Street.

Hopefully the show won't be too cost prohibitive like some Launch sets, so come out ready to dance, mofos!
