In a Final Act of Strangeness, Ivo Performs ‘Besame Mucho’

July 5, 2014 by  

Having now spent 3+ years in the band with our (former) keyboardist Ivelin, I’ve learned quite a few things about him and Bulgarians in general. He knows where to buy t-shirts with zippers on them. He can eat an entire Entenmann’s sheet cake in one sitting. And he somehow knows all of the lyrics to Besame Mucho, in Spanish. An impromptu performance of the song came at a wedding last month, to the delight of everyone in the band and no one in the audience. Enjoy!

Has Anyone Ever Heard of “Instagram”?

JTT on Instagram

Here at Just the Tip, we adapt to social trends at about the same rate as your grandparents or other people who don’t have any friends. Thus, we now have Instagram. For anyone who decided to follow us on Twitter years ago, you’ll know that has rewarded you with absolutely nothing. But THIS time it will be different, man. I will purposely make a point to tell Chad to update our Instagram. So follow us. Thanks!

Wedding Season Starts This Saturday

May 8, 2014 by  

IMG_0057 1

10 Weddings. 5 angry wives/girlfriends. 1 Bulgarian. From May through October we’ll be playing in 6 states over god-knows-how-many miles, with 90% of proceeds going to the closest Applebees franchise. If this doesn’t spell reality show, I don’t know what does. I’d list our itinerary but I’ll leave that to Chris Farley:

Ever since the original TIP Van was put to pasture, we’ve relied on rentals for our road trips. But the spirit of the Van lives on. Eric silently reads Buffalo sports news and doesn’t talk to anyone. Ivo eats an entire chocolate sheet cake in one sitting. Sarcasm is completely lost on Oakes. Pott drives separately for undisclosed reasons, though we secretly suspect uncontrollable flatulence.

We’ll be posting updates throughout the summer to our Instagram, so make sure to follow us!



New Venue This Friday Night: Fat Baby NYC

January 16, 2014 by  


The title of this post really sums it up pretty good. But I’ll drive the point home again, if nothing but for the fact that I need at last 5 sentences to make this blog post feel worthwhile. We’re playing a show this Friday night at Fat Bay on the Lower East Side. It’s a new spot for us. Fifth sentence here.

Hope you can make it!
