Come hang out with us this weekend in the twin cities with Koo Koo Kanga Roo. They will be celebrating the release of their new album Woopty Woop on Asian Man Records. If you haven’t heard of Koo Koo Koo Kanga Roo they play “kid songs for adults”. Sound familiar? They are totally fantastic and just finished a tour with The Aquabats. We’re playing the early all-ages show @ 12 Noon @ Amsterdam Hall in St. Paul. General B and the Wiz and Carroll will be rocking the late night 18+ show. Make sure you bring any friends who love dancing, sing-a-longs, and having fun!

We decided that today would be the perfect day to let you in on a little secret called Glow In The Dark!
For a few years we’ve been scheming to release a vinyl retrospective and it finally happened thanks to Vinyl Remains!
Glow In The Dark is a 12-track collection of Destroy Nate Allen favorites, brought to you by Vinyl Remains and released on a 10″ highlighter yellow and hot pink vinyl record. The record comes with two full album downloads; 1 album download is ripped directly from the vinyl and the other is of your standard mp3 fair. Only 300 records have been made! This is our first ever full length collection of songs to make it onto vinyl and we are very excited.
If you are in the Kansas City area, Nate will be playing a (mostly) solo set at Cafe Main (801 Main St) in Grandview, MO to celebrate the album release this Sunday Nov. 10th. The show is all-ages from 6-8 pm and $2.
We hope to see you soon.
Nate and Tessa
Glow In The Dark, in some ways, represents the best of what our band, Destroy Nate Allen, has been. We have performed most of the songs on Side A hundreds of times; these are the requests – “White Flag”, “Jesus, Keep Us Safe From The Cops,” “My Parents Managed Apartments” – and some of our favorite songs: “Loving You Means Everything” and “Recipe.”
For the last several years we have been exhausting our artistic life force, traveling the country and singing our hearts out as a duo. But before that, Destroy Nate Allen was a bare bones, confessional solo project. This is reflected on Side B, which features some of my least favorite songs to play live such as: “Asshole” and “Last Call.” These songs represent the hard times, the struggles, my fears. Nevertheless, the album ends as it should, with laughter and loud crowd participation.
We are super excited to finally have this retrospective collection see the light of day. Most of these recordings are far out of print and or have never been officially released. It is hard to say what the future holds, but we are so thankful for your love and support that has allowed our extroverted folk punk theater to exist. – Nate Allen

We hope life has been kind to you.
One thing we have noticed now that we are living in Kansas City is that groceries, specifically produce, are more expensive in the Midwest than on the West Coast. This has driven us to make the weekly farmer’s market our primary grocery experience. Tessa has been looking up all kinds of recipes online learning how to make delightful new dishes. Today’s success was ratatouille! I (Tessa) loosely followed this guy’s recipe (except I did cook the eggplant and zucchini separately).
In May, we went down to Eugene and played a show live on KWVA! We invited people to the radio station just like a regular house show, and ended up with a great mix of friends and new faces packing out the small room. Besides showcasing how FUN we are, it is the longest show in DNA history and spans nearly 2 hrs (including an interview and plenty of banter). There are quite a few surprises on the recording, including some unreleased songs from a Nate side project, so go check it out. It’s available for free or donation.
