Saturna has a lot going on right now with the preparation for the release of Some Delicious Enemy, their debut full length CD, and upcoming summer tour.  A lot of other things have been happening as well. 

Saturna is pleased to announce that The Wichita City Paper is playing Just For Thrills on Scallywag Radio, their online radio station. 

Choose Interactive, the company that produced The Weathered Underground, had some kind words to say about our performances at SXSW.   Dany from Exitfare also mentioned he checked us out at SXSW.

And last but not least Bibe and Eurdi included Pop Rocks in their 10 mp3s post with other songs from Devendra Banhart, Lily Allen and The Rolling Stones.

 More exciting news coming soon . . .

Saturna SXSW Recap March 22, 2007

Wow, SXSW is insane! You might be wondering why we didn’t write anything about it over the last few days and honestly, its because SXSW kicked our ass.  It was our first time playing SXSW and we didn’t really know what to expect, but now we’re hooked.  We met so many amazing people, saw tons of great bands and had the time of our lives.  We also got to hang out with a bunch of our friends that we didn’t know would be there.  We played both Friday and Saturday nights and shared the stage with The Lashes, Schoolyard Heroes, The Blakes, Rocket, Sirens Sister, and Aaron Mannino.  Both nights we played a showcase for the movie The Weathered Underground, which placed Saturna songs in both the film and on the soundtrack.  They also filmed our live show and will put some videos up for us on their site in the next couple of weeks, so you can check out the show too.  We got to see a few other bands like The Black Angels, Kings of Leon and more.

So, I could go on an on about SXSW and I actually did, so check out our myspace blog if you want to read the blow by blow account of our adventures.

Here’s a picture that kind of tells it all.  Thanks Dead Girl!

Big thanks to The Steamroller, an indie music blog written by Worn Records in Vancouver, BC, for writing up Saturna on their blog.    They describe Pop Rocks saying, “This song first makes me think of The Kills, but way better. It starts with a great beat, followed by a wicked bass line that people could dance to, or just bop their heads.”   They also love Blanket of Stars and asked when Saturna was coming north.  Believe me, we love Vancouver and will try to make it as soon as possible.
