Photo shoot. Check!
We are preparing for upcoming summer shows lately. Got a couple new songs in the works. And we had a photo shoot for 2 hours yesterday. Of course Jamie (who works in layout and design all day) had to do some of his signature tweaking as soon as he was handed 1 of the files:) here’s a little preview of what you’ll be seeing on stage… mask and all….

Here comes the sounds!
The evolution of most bands is to muddle thru a few people early on who just don’t fit the project. We all expected it. Now that that’s been done we have been banging away on new stuff and re-mixing vocals on the existing songs. You’re gonna like the improvements on what you’ve already heard! HUGE difference! We’re all extremely happy with Bri. She walked in and...

Hi all!! I regret to inform you that the 1/13/13 show at Elbo Room has been cancelled. We apologize to those who planned on attending or watching the live feed online. It seems that one of the members has had a bizarre gardening accident. ( all you Spinal Tap fans understand what I just said.) We’ll back back after a little fine-tuning. Thanks you, Jamie 13-MONSTERS Chicago

The recent events that have devastated communities, families and individuals have hit both of us very hard as it has hit many parents and family members around the world. We want to do something. We want to help. And we feel that now that we have an audience maybe we should try....
The story of the now great and infamous 12/5 show...
So..our very first show ( as 13-MONSTERS is now, Laura & Jamie) was at Double Door, Chicago along with Brooke Bartlett, More Gorgeous and headliners Ayanami . Being the first band up means that you are the last ones to get your stuff on stage, do a fast sound check and GO! Play your set and get the hell off ASAP. Ahhh..the life of a band. Our set-up is a mish-mosh of...
