11.30.17 — JUST ANNOUNCED: SNOWBALL ii w/ Goon and Alyeska in San Francisco on Jan. 3rd

11.20.2017 — JUST ANNOUNCED: SNOWBALL ii & Collapsing Scenery in Long Beach on Jan. 7th

9.10.2017 — Black Sea's new album Mastered by SNOWBALL ii
Our friends in Black Sea put out their debut record on Burger Records last week. I had the honor of using really expensive mastering equipment to master this great record in high fidelity stereophonic digital & analog hybrid signal pathways so it could be released on cassette tape, the world's leading technology for hi-fuckin'-fi. Dig it in lossless digital quality here, but buy it on tape so Burger Records will put it out on vinyl:

5.31.2017 — New Noise Magazine premiers Snowball ii cover of the theme to Twin Peaks
"There’s also a vibe that walks the line between despair and triumphant. It’s a captivating version of a television series theme that also exhibits an improvisational quality." -Rob Duguay, New Noise Magazine

5.17.2017 – Los Angeles & San Diego shows this weekend
This Friday is one of only two more residency dates we have left at Silverlake Lounge in LA. As always we hit the stage at midnight. Bring coffee & earplugs.
Saturday we trek down to San Diego to play Soda Bar with our friends The Lulls & a cool band called Sweet Spirit. I bet we’ll be on first, so get there early. Tickets for both of these shows are on our tour page.
5.16.2017 – New Los Angeles & San Francisco shows added
Not only are we hitting The Constellation Room in Santa Ana, CA with our New England buddies Animal Flag, but we’ve also added a show in Eagle Rock at All Star Lanes on 5/29 with both Animal Flag and Love Nothing, with whom we played The Smell last month. It’s been a few years since I’ve had the opportunity to share the stage with Animal Flag—in fact longer than Snowball ii has been around. I was in one of the first iterations of Animal Flag while I was living in Boston several years ago, but they’ve come a long way since. They don’t get out west very much—so if you’re around next week, you won’t want to miss either of these shows.
July will bring us up to San Francisco to co-headline Café Du Nord with Goon! Very excited to break into the Bay Area scene with the Noise Pop Presents stamp of approval. 7/7/2017, don’t miss it!
5.14.2017 – Snowball ii on BBC Radio!
Katie Puckrik blasted our tune ‘Anais & Me’ across international airwaves on BBC radio today. Now will somebody tell NPR to do the same?
CHECK OUT HER SHOW HERE
5.5.2017 – Silverlake Lounge Residency kicks off tonight
If you haven’t already heard, Snowball ii will be pushing sound waves every Friday night in May. Our set is at midnight. We’ll be trying out new material at these shows, so come by if you want to hear some stuff we usually don’t get the opportunity to try.
3.24.2017 – Snowball ii song "Nobody's Secret" (unreleased) is featured in new film All Nighter starring J.K. Simmons, Emile Hirsch, & Kristen Schaal released today
We at Snowball ii HQ are no strangers to Mr. Simmons, Mr. Hirsch, or Ms. Schaal, so it is a major honor to have our works be included in one of theirs. I still had to pay to go see it though...
