A couple weeks ago Jared and I made a dance video for ZANZIBAR! And there it is. And somehow, magically, a bunch of lovely people are giving us a total of almost $160 per music video we make on our Patreon page. This is just huge. I mean, this is a significant amount of money for us and… Continue reading New video for “ZANZIBAR!” plus exciting Patreon news!
We’re happy to play this show But sad to see Melinda go And Brennen Leigh and Noel McKay Shall sing before they’re on their way Back to Nashville, back out East Where Melinda shall put roots down, deep (I mean she’s moving to Wisconsin or Minnesota or something, not Nashville) The Happy Gland Band will… Continue reading Plain Jane Glory’s Farewell Show!
We’re entering a contest! It’s this contest. It’s a contest where you make a video (hey, we do that) of you playing music (hey, we do that, too) with a desk nearby (hey, we have a desk), and maybe you get to play at the NPR Music offices in Washington sometime. So we did the things… Continue reading The Clever Wife—New Video
…it’s at the Mine Shaft in Madrid!
We just launched our Patreon page! What’s that, you say? Patronage died out nearly hundreds of years ago? Yes, well we thought so too. Turns out there’s a website out there trying to bring the patron/artist relationship back. If you’d like to help us in our wacky quest to make fun music and silly videos,… Continue reading Become a Patron of Sage and Jared’s Happy Gland Band!
It’s the truth. That person who collects vintage kazoos in all keys, has every electronic gadget, and ten mewling cats to boot, probably does not have (and doesn’t even realize she needs) an anatomically correct model of the Happy Gland. Avoid buying crap from evil corporate entities! Rather than going all corporate this holiday season, check… Continue reading For All Your (Decidedly Not Evil) Holiday Shopping Needs…
From the Happy Gland Dirigible Jared and I have been rushing around like crazy people trying to insulate the Happy Gland Dirigible with enough straw to keep it warm for the winter. No plastic sheeting or double-sided tape for us, no! We do things the old fashioned way, with crispy shafts of dead wheats. Little… Continue reading Recent improvements to the Happy Gland Dirigible, plus the benefits of working for the environment
Last Friday Jared and I emerged shivering from the Happy Gland Band dirigible, cursing the fact that we had once again forgotten that the fabric covering of our airship provides poor insulation against the chilliness of Hallow’s Eve eve night. We shook it off, though—we’re not ones to whine and complain that a cruel draft had… Continue reading Behind-The-Scenes Costuming Adventures of DEAD SLOTH: A photo essay
Flooded Away by Sage and Jared's Happy Gland Band Almost a year ago, the Happy Gland Band dirigible alighted from these desert soils and carted Jared, George Michael, Daphne, and I off to our very first CD release party! We had a grande olde time and just remembering it causes us to pull out our vintage 1970s print… Continue reading Happy Almost First Birthday, Flooded Away!
Here at the Happy Gland Ranch, things are getting interesting in the compost pile. We’ve been feeding chickens obscenely disgusting (or exceedingly delicious, depending upon whose perspective we’re dealing with) maggots from the compost pile. We draw them out with halves of (sadly) rotten melons (yes, we’ve had more than one of those, recently, sigh),… Continue reading On Maggots and Music Boxes, Among Other Things
