We’re happy to say we are alive and well despite the lack of updates from us. We’ve had a lot of exciting things happen in the last few months; we’ve had a couple babies born (congrats, JP and Matthew!), with a couple more on the way (congrats, Charley and Michael!), some hard work in the studio, and some successful shows & benefits. We’ve got a lot more in the works, as well!
We’d just like to take a quick moment to thank you, our fans and supporters. We love you (yes, even you) and are happy you are part of our big extended LWATCH family! You make it all possible! Thanks for your friendship and support all these years!
We are still working hard on our album. Neon Brown studios and LWATCH are still working on getting it sounding just right. We got some great special guests lined up – some old friends and some new ones. Once all the knobs have been twiddled just right, and all the loose ends are tied up, we’ll be sending it off to the presses! We are shooting to release sometime in the 1st or 2nd quarter of next year. We’ve got some exciting things going on and we can’t wait to share them with you!
We’ve got some other great things lined up, too:
We’re supporting Mikel Wright & the Wrongs on 11/28 at Harriet Brewing. If you enjoy music, beer, or a great brewpub atmosphere you’d be remiss to be absent. We’ve been wanting to play with these guys for a long while so it’s exciting to finally be able to share a stage with them. Plus, it’s Mike Periolat’s birthday, so come on down and give him the best birthday present there is: the pleasure of your company.
For you generous types, we’ve got another benefit coming up for a great organization we believe strongly in: Boom Boom’s Beds. You’ve probably heard of them before; in fact this will be the second time we’ve played their annual Beds & Bluegrass benefit at the Bulldog.
There’s probably some super witty alliteration thing we could be doing there – we’ll have our promotional team work something out for next year. You can get more information about this worthwhile event at, but come out to the downtown Bulldog 12/5 from 1-5pm to support a great cause.
And if you have a later bedtime and like to celebrate anniversaries, LWATCH is playing 12/11 at the Turf Club with The Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank. It’s their 10th anniversary show in the cities – awesome! That’s twice as long as LWATCH has been around!
We’re fired up to be opening along with Woodblind.

These are the good ole days! Until the next time!
Luke Warm and the Cool Hands
Howdy there! Luke Warm and the Cool Hands coming straight into your web browsers with some Hot-N-Ready updates for this Spring… Check it out!
The band was fortunate enough to play a benefit for the Uganda Rural Fund at the Bulldog this past 28th of Feb, as many of you know, since you were there! The benefit ended up raising $3400 – way to go everybody! We are proud to be a part of such a selfless and generous community. Thank you so much!
Coming up this weekend, on Sunday the 15th, is the Butcher & The Boar’s 3rd Anniversary Bash. LWATCH is serving up their brand of aural deliciousness at 2pm, followed by the Jason Paulson Band and the Todd Douglas band. Come fill up your mugs with delectable meats, and your ears with eargasmic melodies as we celebrate three years of fine dinin’! Doors are at 1pm.
On April 16th we are taking the tour bus down to New Prague to participate in the “Booked” concert series at the New Prague Library. We’re playing from 7-8pm. Stop on down and check us out; no late fees, we promise!
Later on, in April on the 25th we are celebrating the return of spring at Harriet Brewing’s Sol Bock Revival Festival. Kind Country and No Man’s String Band are going to be around as well. There will be food trucks, beer, and music. Doesn’t that sound real nice? Hope to see you there!
We are also knockin’ around working on something real special at Neon Brown Studios in Crystal, MN. More info to come, so keep your ears to the ground…
Can’t wait to see you at your next LWATCH event!
