So long, farewell: the Hound's final howl

Damn: final gig for the Hound tonight at Great Scott. Along with Big Bear's Jordyn Bonds, the Hound's Tiffiney Shoquist changed the game for female singers in Boston. Outshouting dudes without making too big a deal about it, Tiff pretty much shattered everyone who saw her, which is not to minimize what the rest of the band did. But the first time you saw the Hound, it was the singer who had people's jaws around their ankles. They leave behind a seven-inch on Teenage Disco Bloodbath, but there was more in the can from that session (if we get word it's OK we'll post some of it), and their last communication hinted at a final studio date, so maybe there'll be a posthumous CD:

so here is the deal. The Hound is ending. reuben and joey are moving and it seems that there is no way the hound can continue. I would say that this is more of an indefinite hiatus than a breakup. im sure we would all love playing music together in the future, but currently its just not gonna happen.

so, these are the final plans for the behemoth known as The Hound

We have three shows in May, then we are going to go into the studio with our friend Kevin, the mastermind behind Animal Hospital and record a CD. it will contain all our new songs and we'll probably throw a few old recordings on there too.

at the moment this is it for the hound. we may throw in a basment show here or there, but if you want to see the hound for sure, you should come to any and all of these shows. thanks to all that have supported us.

Tonight's set times, according to the Bakula kids:

Bakula: 9:00 - 9:30
Spheres: 9:45 - 10:15
Banana Hands: 10:30 - 11:00
Badman: 11:15 - 11:45
The Hound: 12:00 - 12:30 (or beyond)
