After 7 long years, we are SO excited to be making our second kids album! We couldn't be happier with how its coming together and can't wait to show your the new songs: Made to entertain kids and not drive parents crazy! And we're happy to announce that Alex's new bride Catie has joined Cake for Dinner, so it is a real family affair!  We're so close to getting this album out we can feel it, but WE NEED YOUR HELP! Whether you have kids or are just curious, buying an advance copy of the CD, or getting one of the nifty packages we've made, will allow us to fund this project. YOU are our record label. So we encourage you to visit our Cake for Dinner page and ask you to share it with all of your friends! We hope you enjoy and THANK YOU from the bottom of our wee hearts!
Washington D.C.'s most energetic and eclectic band.”

Little Sisters of the Poor Spring Benefit (w/RUNA)

Jack Nevin Fieldhouse, Villanova U., 800 Lancaster Ave., Villanova

This is one of Scythian's dearest concerts. The Little Sisters of the Poor dedicate their lives to helping poor elderly people who have no one to care for them. They provide a beautiful loving home and volunteers come to give the ladies "Spa Days", musical concerts, play bingo, go for walks, spend quality time and even provide "happy hour!" Dan and Alex got to volunteer at the Philly home for some time and got to witness the most touching aspect of The Little Sisters: they are committed to make sure that none of these poor elderly die alone. So they keep a 24 hour vigil at the deathbed of their clients so that they leave this world surrounded by love. The home runs ENTIRELY on donations so even if you can't make the concert consider helping this worthy cause.

The concert will feature nationally touring traditional Celtic band - RUNA and Scythian. Your ticket gets you food, beer and admission to a top-notch show. We guarantee you will never see a show quite like this one: nuns spinning around on the dance floor with clients, kids everywhere and an atmosphere of joy that can only come from people who have devoted their lives to a higher cause. To reserve you ticket and get more information visit The Little Sister's website.

Event takes place in the Jack Nevin Fieldhouse
