The Lost Wheels @ Varsity Theater | MORC 20th Anniversary Gala – Nov 9th, 2014

Walt Guitar

We are very happy to be playing both an acoustic and electric set at the Varsity Theater for MORC’s (Minnesota Off-Road Cyclists) 20th Anniversary Gala on Nov 9th, 2014.

MORC 20th Anniversary Gala

MORC’s Background

MORC is a non-profit organization dedicated to “gaining and maintaining trails” since 1994. These are off-road mountain and bmx bike trails for all ages to enjoy around the Twin Cities metro. With 2014 being our 20th anniversary as a non-profit we are celebrating by throwing a BIG party!

To celebrate the Minnesota Off-Road Cyclists are hosting the 20th Anniversary Gala Sunday, November 9th from 2-7 pm at the Varsity Theater in downtown Minneapolis. This event will be aimed at raising funds for our 2015 season as well as our efforts to become the International Mountain Biking Association’s first designated ‘Ride City’ which requires a major metropolitan area to have 100+miles of designated single track mountain bike trail…we are very close. We are currently developing the Three Rivers Park area at Lake Rebecca that will secure this designation but it is going to take a lot of blood, sweat, tears and dollars to complete a project of this scope but it is sure to be amazing!

This will be a formal dinner event that includes guest speakers; Paul Douglas, Steve Flagg (President QBP), Hansi Johnson (formerly IMBA now MN Land Trust) and Libby Hurley (MN High School Mountain Bike League) as well as live and silent auctions to support MORC’s efforts moving forward.

Tickets are now on sale here.

Also….do you get the irony that our band The Lost Wheels is playing a cycling event?????

Rule For A Day Vinyl Records._Pressings

It’s been a long process, but after a few glitches, we finally received the test pressings! We’ll be listening to these carefully to make sure everything is top-notch before the final production pressing begins. We sincerely thank everyone who selected a vinyl reward, as well as all our Kickstarter backers who made this possible. We really appreciate your patience as we learn through this process, which is very new to us. We look forward to shopping these records, and all remaining rewards very soon!

Additionally, thanks to the help of the lovely and talented Terez Iacovino, we have finished screenprinting our record sleeves. When you receive your vinyl record, it will be encased in a limited edition sleeve, one of a run of 100.

Thanks once again to everyone for all your support and patience. If you didn’t pre-order a vinyl copy of our record as part of our Kickstarter, once everything’s completed we’ll create a purchase link and send it out.

Now we’re gonna cut the chatter and spin the platter…

Love,

The Lost Wheels
