    Greetings from Mars,

    These are strange days, folks. It feels like we're in the Twilight Zone. And it is with great surprise and a bit of shame that we regret to inform you about this year's annual Thanksoween bash. The party we were all expecting, it seems, will not actually have a platform this year at all.

    You see, although the Thanksoween celebration has enjoyed much success in previous years, recently the inner workings of the Thanksoween Committee have not been without controversy. Insiders have expressed concern over a fractured constituency, and sources have revealed that the Committee's party planners were not actually acting in the party's best interest. In fact, it appears as though they were also acting without any regard for the bird! Many in the party's baste feel betrayed, as if they were promised sour mash whiskey, only to receive sour mashed potatoes. Not the greatest pairing, as Thanksoween has always served as an appetizer for Thanksgiving, and the Committee's inability to live up to its promises have left the public with a bad taste in its mouth.

    There was hope, if only for a moment, that the Committee would get things back on track, and appoint a new leader with integrity. Someone who would approach the party and the bird with more care. And things looked very promising for the immensely popular and well respected candidate, Colonel Sanders. He was cooking with gas, until shenanigans from the top down conspired to keep him out of the kitchen, claiming he could not stand the heat. Slander! Sanders, a deep friar, would now rather slather the matter in batter and butter, than utter a fowl word about his opponent, who'd been acting like a bit of a Julia Child. But that just speaks to the man he is.

    Early on, Sanders' original recipe for success had undeniable appeal with partygoers, and some have argued that he would have attracted more to the party than ever before. His policy on illegal herbs and spices crossed party lines altoghether, with chants from both sides of 'Make America Bake Again!' But once taken out of the picture, his opponent's attempt to capitalize on Sanders' original recipe proved incredibly unsuccessul, barely able to conjure up a poor Kennedy imitation. Chicken in a Basket of Deplorables. And while some were content to accept this as bizcuits as usual, others realized they could no longer stomach her menu of greasy GMO potatoes while she continued to receive kickbacks from the Big Foodbanks and Wedge Funds. Her hand caught in the cookie jar, it's a miracle the lady is not headed up the river in an Oreo Speedwagon. But then again, our Betty Crocker is much too connected to ever really become a Martha Stewart.

    So where does that leave us? Well, suffice it to say that Thanksoween needed more than a wing and a prayer. Your voices have made it abundantly clear that the status quo will no longer do. Additionally, many have intimated that the problem was rooted in putting the party before the bird itself, and so it should come as no shock that many of you flocked to support some turkey who claimed he'd do the opposite. We guess that resonated with a lot of you, and we get it. The bird's important. But don't think for a minute that we don't think it's insane to move from the left of Thanksgiving to the right, sandwiched between a butterball and Uncle Nick's Elf Sweatshop with the X-Giving party! What kind of ridiculous name is that? This does not bode well.

    But yeah, it looks like we'll be playing after thanksgiving this year instead. God help us. So eat your bird, eat your leftovers, and be a good trypto-fan. Come catch us at our first time at Club Bonafide on the 29th and we'll figure this all out together.

    -EGOM

    'Tis a sordid tale of inharmonious alien conquest and genetically modified poly-rhythms. Listen, all ye mighty and despair. EVIL GIRAFFES ON MARS

    Comprised of some of NYC's best up and coming instrumental talent, EGOM features original composition by way of science fiction aesthetic. Co-led by Doron Lev and Ryan Slotnick on drums and keyboards respectively, the band currently showcases Matt La Von on soprano saxophone, Chad Lefkowitz-Brown on tenor saxophone, Ben Eunson on guitar, and SharpEye on flute and EWI.

    The band's first album, Cydonia, was released to critical acclaim by those critics who chose to criticize it. An independent release, Cydonia has caught the attention of more than a few well to do scenesters and adventurous listeners. Allmusic.com awarded it 4 stars, noting "knotty unison lines, passionate soloing and powerhouse drumming, and a great sense of group dynamics within any given piece. Overall, a pretty impressive debut album." EGOM has even been compared to "Vince Guaraldi trapped in a high concept B movie" by the Geekdads over at Wired. Additionally, some humans have noted that EGOM is a band that "could do well at both progressive jazz clubs and prog rock festivals." Others humans have more or less expressed the same sentiment. Upon his first encounter with EGOM, the great Leonardo "Moonjune" Pavkovic declared... "I would love to see this band on a bigger stage and with Rhodes plugged into Marshalls." Perhaps it may come to that, as Evil Giraffes On Mars is now recording a brand new album for release on Moonjune records. So keep your ears to the stars, because something's coming. Total destruction of jazz and space and the eventual subjugation of the three nostrilled hoards of Nebulax. Prepare for Phobosapia.
