THE COKE DARES MAKE PARTY

The Coke Dares are one of the world's most geographically diverse bands. As the men said (read: Bob Aspirin, Mr. Dawgter, and Old Mr. Boston [formerly Skye Miles, Dr. History Doctor, and Pervert]) "Come Hell or High Water, the Proof's in the Pudding." That is, maps (not "Mask Maps," but the geographical kind that do not feature oblique lyrical content, save for the difficulty one might have in reading them should they have never been educated in the proper way to do just that) show that we are now in the great cities of Portland, OR, Raleigh, NC, and Philadelphia, PA, respectively.

What does that mean for the future of TCD? The future is just history in reverse, and as the men said (see above), "It's easy; it's history."

That is, we will...

make a new record in 2014!!

...(details forthcoming!) and we have been holding weekly conference calls to mitigate the implications of geographical diversity.

That's right - The Coke Dares are BEATING technology!

In the meantime, here's what our incredibly talented members are up to

BOB ASPIRIN (aka Skye Myles, aka Pete Schreiner): TUMBLR, his bands Thousand Arrows and The Zags, and photography. Oh, and find him on Instagram - @peaceshrine.

OLD MR. BOSTON (aka Pervert, aka Mark Rice): His Philadelphia based art production factory, and his solo musics and sounds.

MR. DAWGTER (aka Dr. History Doctor, aka Jason Evans Groth): His blog, his other band The Sands.

Don't be a stranger! Email us at thecokedares@gmail.com

BUY OUR RECORDS

Why not purchase a The Coke Dares record to celebrate summer, 2014? We're almost out of most of them and our reality show contract doesn't start for two years, and there's no way we can repress them before that. Sure you'll find them on the internet somehow but you want the physical copy, right? You want to hold that in your hand or frame it and give it to your parents for their 40th anniversayr, right?

When you decide to buy, email us at thecokedares@gmail.com . We'll give you prices. We'll throw in the shipping for free. Just email us. Now.

There are those who party and who love life and we are some of those.

Love, TCD

OLD NEWS

May 22, 2012

OH NO! OH YEAH!

Just like an M. Night Shyamalan movie, you're going to be, at once, sort of surprised, but mostly used, to the following announcement:

The Coke Dares are, in fact, alive, and will be playing

MAY 22 at The Bishop in Bloomington, IN at 9pm

MAY 24 at the Melody Inn in Indianapolis, IN at 8pm (NO KIDDING)

As you know, if you don't come you'll miss out on the latest, greatest views on elections of all type, including VHS copies of the movie Election and how we hope the Blu-Ray is out soon. We'll also discuss new frontiers in trailer living, courtesy of our drummer, just returned from France, Pervert.

So come see us. Why not? We exist.

YO, WEB SURFERS

Dr. History Doctor (aka Roger Dollartree), Skye Miles (aka Roger Blotters), and Porno Hippie (aka Ice Miller, brother of Pervert) are excited to announce that

OUR DAYTROTTER SESSION

is up and available for you to listen to, critique, love, and transcribe. Do so with caution! There's a ton of songs! Even more than our listed in the session. No hyperbole: We recorded more songs in one session than anyone at Daytrotter had in the past. And, probably, the future.

Why not purchase a The Coke Dares record for Valentine's Day? We're almost out of most of them and Newt Gingrich knows that we aren't going to repress them. Sure you'll find them on the internet somehow but you want the physical copy, right? You want to hold that in your hand and make others jealous, right?

Biologists control the world and will eventually win the Republican primary. Mark our word(s).

PEOPLE OF THE INTERNET!

Pervert, Skye Miles, and Beach Dog no longer live in the same town. Practice is difficult because cell phone technology has not caught up with how fast we play. Soon, though. 5g for sure.

Sure, there are no upcoming shows, but Skye is out on tour with Scout Niblett right now. Check out his tour blog here. If you live out West remember what Jim Morrison said: "In mute nostril agony/carefully refined and sealed over." He also liked the West, but barely ever says anything like "The West is the best/get here and we'll do the rest" in "The End." But whatever: He was perfect, but he wasn't as perfect as any of our fine slate of Republican Presidential candidates.

Why not purchase a The Coke Dares record for Christmas? We're almost out of most of them and Jim Morrison knows that we aren't going to repress them. Sure you'll find them on the internet somehow but you want the physical copy, right? You want to hold that in your hand and make others jealous, right?

When you decide to buy, email us at thecokedares@gmail.com . We'll give you prices. We'll throw in the shipping for free. Just email us. Now.

Enjoy life, science, and the life sciences.
