The Hopefuls release new album - Now Playing at the One-Seat Theatre

Barely in time to inch onto the "Best of 2008" lists, Saturday at First Avenue The Hopefuls celebrate the release of their long-awaited new album, Now Playing At The One-Seat Theater.

Special guests at Saturday's CD Release event are Chris Koza and One For The Team.

Doors at 6:00 pm, music at 7:00 pm. $8 advance, $10 at the door.

Visit The Hopefuls' MySpace page to preview two tracks from the new album: "Virgin Wood" and "What She Wants."

I finally got a preview of the new disc yesterday and it's different than their debut release - perhaps more atmospheric and with a little less of a punch than the debut - but nonetheless an excellent album of catchy pop. My favorites include "On The Edge of Medicine," "Idaho," and the album's title track.

Hopefuls fans are not likely to be disappointed by the new 8 song disc.

Also, don't miss their live in-studio performance on 89.3 The Current, Friday morning at 7:30 am.

I just found that out myself. The copy I was given to preview by the label was missing 3 tracks. Can't wait to hear the rest of it.
