We met La Mer last month when we played the WitZend with Big in Bremen, and she asked if we had any sea shanties.
“‘Do we have sea shanties,’ she says,” we said.
Quickly perusing our massive catalog of Human Experience, Fogelfoot realized that Yes, we have nearly a shit-ton of sea shanties, from our “All That Jaws” period to “Cormorant” to a brand new song we’re debuting Friday, “Sirens of Venice,” which may or may not borrow heavily from a certain T.S. Eliot poem that has nothing to do with cats.
Here is the event invitation text. It promises to be a groovy night on Lincoln:
You are invited to a petite event in honor of Summer Solstice and also to celebrate the release of the EP I have been creating over the past year.
This is a whole night event, and save the date : Friday, JUNE 21 7pm~midnight! WITZ END
Here is a bit of what’s in store
La Mer, Liz Wood, Ancient and Original Sea Shanties by Fogelfoot, David & Olivia ( celebrating their new release, ‘Out to Sea’,
My new favorite Mojo Voodoo Gypsies,

There will be some other amazing surprises to add a lil splash to the night, so stay tuned. … One last thing, this is a Summer and Sea Salt theme, so feel inspired to dress in your favorite ocean themed attire… whatever that means to you
We love the WitZend and are very excited about this event. I have a feeling that people will get pregnant there.
