January 09, 06 - After hiatus, Empire State set to perform again
After a long hiatus, Empire State will perform at the 40 Watt (Athens, GA) on January 18th, 2006. Alas, original bandmate Alex McManus will not be in attendance - but additional members will include Brent Jones and Jesse Flavin (both of Good Ship and Phosphorescent).

This perfomance will also coincide with the showing of band member Tim Nackashi's documentary film, Dirty Work. If you didn't catch it when it was up for best doc at Sundance (or the subsequent airings on the Sundance Channel) - now is definitely your time to see it.

Empire State will perform after the showing of the film.
