East Coast Tour starts march 15th
Posted by Michael | February 27th, 2014
Imagine this… A 13 year old boy is standing in front of a mirror with a Fender Strat strapped around his shoulders. Metallica is playing VERY LOUDLY on the CD player. He's got 2 foot long hair, an attitude, and a dream. To one day hit the road with his best friends and play music any and everywhere. I've probably just described every musician born between 1960 and 2000 but in this case I am talking about myself. Yes. I, Michael, had 2 foot long hair. It was awesome.
We are beyond excited to announce our first east coast tour! We will be heading out on March 15th and finishing up on April 3rd and hitting up some amazing places along the way. Places like Newport, Northampton, Atlanta, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, and New York City (just to name a few) are all going to be getting a little bit UGLIER! You can check out when and where we'll be on our Tour Page and follow our antics on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and right here on our site! We can't wait to play a city near you!
Winner - "Best in Connecticut" at 2014 NEMA Awards
Posted by Nick | February 27th, 2014
Back in January of this year we discovered that we’d been nominated for something pretty special. Something that was quite humbling and downright crazy. We were nominated for Best Band in Connecticut at the New England Music Awards! Little Ugly, along with Violent Mae, Elison Jackson, Porcelain Clocks and Jennifer Hill & Co were all asked to come celebrate this amazing scene of ours in Lowell, MA on Feb 22nd and find out who would take home the prize.
Upon arriving to the Lowell Memorial Auditorium, we found an event much bigger than we anticipated. The crowd was a verifiable who’s who of the New England music scene. We ran in to many of our musical cohorts (Joey Batts & Them, Sarah Borello, and The Mallett Brothers Band to name a few) and were able to meet and listen to many new bands that this ceremony brought together! This was definitely a TALENTED crowd.
One of our favorite people of all time, Lisa Sanchez Gonzalez from Local Band Review, was the first to take the stage and announce our category. We are immensely proud and honored to announce that because of your support we took home the award! We have the best fans/family anyone could ask for. Thank you for continuing to follow us on this little journey of ours! So again from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU. WE LOVE YOU. We’ll never be able to say it enough. Here's a video of us accepting the award: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfOTDrW6L2c
