Studio Work

Hi everybody!

It has been a great week and it was an even better weekend. I realize I am late in writing this, but what the heck.

Boiling Point was in the studio working on some new material this past Saturday and we are really excited to give you all a listen to see what you think. The song we recorded is called "try." If you have been to a show recently, then you will recognize the tune. We will try to post it on facebook, myspace, and all of our other pages just as soon as we get something back. Until then, we hope to see you at an upcoming show.

Speaking of upcoming shows, we have a show Sunday at 5:30pm. It is round 3 of the band tourney and the location is Destiny Christian Center. The church is in Burnsville just off of Highway 13. Directions can be found at:

Hope to see you all at the show!

Minneapolis... or Lindstrom?

Often times, when the band is asked where it is from, we answer Minneapolis. For those of you who are truely in the know, however, you realize that most of us actually hail from the small town of Lindstrom, MN.

Lindstrom is a quiet town situated on several lakes. Many, like myself, would like to say that it is a suberb of Minneapolis, but if we were being honest, it's hardly that at all. Instead, one could more easily say that it is a suberb of Forest Lake (I know, where?).

There are two simple reasons why we tell people we are from Minneapolis.

First, people actually know where Minneapolis is. Interestingly, the farther out to the coasts you go, you're better off saying you are from Chicago because people honestly don't always know where Minneapolis is either.

Secondly, if people ask us where we are from, they either say: a) "I have no idea where that is." or b) "Is that the town with the water tower that looks like a teapot?" Normally this second option is followed up with a quick "yep" and several moments of awkward silence. Hopefully, the conversation recovers...

So where are we from? Lindstrom, MN. However for those who have never heard of us -- Minneapolis will do just fine.

So next time you drive up Highway 8 running East off of Interstate 35 North toward Taylor Falls, be sure to stop by our little town and say hello to our tea pot water tower, run in to the Lindstrom bakery and grab a Swedish donut, or visit our very own stature of liberty -- I kid you not.

Hope to see you all soon.
