We changed our name!!! Formally known as Shelterbelt, we are now “Hey Ice Machine.”
For those who bought our album online or in person when we were Shelterbelt, you have a pretty sweet collectors edition…save it! You can sell it in a few years and retire early.
Some exciting news on the horizon for us, stay tuned!!!
Last Thursday we had the pleasure of celebrating Ferris Wheels and Fresh Hair’s 30th birthday by playing some rock and roll on their roof. It was hot, sweaty and oh so fun and we couldn’t have had a better time if we tried. Thanks to all the people who cheered us on from the street, felt like a U2 video or something! We are also excited to be playing with our good buddies in VIVA VIVA coming up on August 22 at The Middlesex Lounge in Central Square, Cambirdge. Should be a helluva good time. Also on the night resident DJ EL POSER (CVLT, DUSTRI.AL) + IRON FIST (MANEUVER, $ U B L ▲ B). Check the Facebook event here! Hope to see you out there!
