Pre-Order Store is Open
Missed the Kickstarter? Head on over to our pre-order store, where you can pre-order the album and a couple of other nice things.
Fill Out Your Surveys and Get Your Add-ons Now
If you backed the Kickstarter, the BackerKit surveys have been sent and should be in your inbox! These surveys will help us get you exactly the rewards you want, including Add-on rewards!
If you backed the Kickstarter but can't find the survey link in your email, just go here to have your link re-sent.
Surveys are due 6 p.m. EDT June 10. This will ensure we get you your rewards on time (or early), because after the surveys are all done we have to order all the merch, have it shipped to us, sort it, get it ready to ship, etc., which all takes some time. We really appreciate your quick responses!
We've finished the mixing process, and the album is now being mastered. We expect to send it to the printer this week! Holy sh**!
Drunken Postcards Shenanigans
We're planning to livestream our silly selves drinking and writing postcards for our $100+ level backers on Friday, June 21, around 7 or 8 p.m. EDT. More details forthcoming - stay tuned.
Launch Party Scheduled
If you're in the DelMarVa area, join us at the New Deal Cafe in Greenbelt, Md. July 10 to celebrate the new album. We're in the process of planning the event, which will include a full concert and the opportunity to pick up your Kickstarter rewards in person.
Rewards Shipping Timeline
If you're an international backer or outside the DelMarVa area, your rewards should be shipped July 8-10.
If you're local to the DelMarVa area, you can pick up your rewards at our July 10 release party. If you don't pick them up there, they will be shipped to you July 11-13.
This means if you're in the United States, expect to see your rewards by the end of July. Friends in other parts of the world can expect to see their rewards late July or August.
That's it for now! Go fill out those surveys!
We’re pleased to announce the dates for several local shows we’ve confirmed for 2019! For those who like to plan waaaaay ahead, here’s where you’ll find us next year:

We're beyond giddy that the PDX Broadsides, another nerdy, feminist, sex-positive, amazing band from the West coast, will be performing at DragonCon as well. Please give them some love and buy a lot of their merch so they don't have to bring it home on the plane!
Get Hype and Hear Us Squee on the ESO Podcast
We're super excited to announce we'll be performing at DragonCon this September! We first performed at DragonCon in 2015, so we're super stoked to be back (especially since HOPEFULLY this time Lucky won't be in the damn hospital and can actually join us!). When the event gets closer, we should have some schedule details to share, but for now, know that we'll be there, performing and selling our wares!
While we're talking cons, we're also excited to announce we'll be performing at MarsCon (Virginia) for the first time this coming January!
We've got a couple gigs coming up, two Kickstarters we'd like you to support, and a new music video in the works!
Our next performances will be:
Kickstarters to Support
Speaking of Scales and Crosstones, they are just about to launch a Kickstarter for their fourth album! You can be notified when it launches by RSVPing for this Facebook event.
We're also super excited to announce that we'll be part of the lineup of a brand-new, Richmond-based geek music festival called RavenConcert in September! But because it's brand-new, it needs your support to make sure it happens. Go back the Kickstarter today!
New Music Video Coming Soon
We recently recorded a new music video for our song "Bibliophilia." We had fun broadcasting the process on our new Twitch channel last week. Subscribe to our YouTube channel so you don't miss it when it goes live!
Greetings, new fans and followers. Please keep your seatbelts fastened and note these important safety announcements:
We're nerdy, dirty, feminist, funny, and queer, and we sing music representative of that.
We can be found on:
We have two albums! They're available in digital format on Bandcamp, iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play, and Amazon. The first one is more "Ren Faire folk" and 100% a cappella. Second one is more nerdy/filky and has some ukulele in there.
We do 10-12 live shows a year, at fandom conventions and DC/Baltimore area bars and variety shows. Our upcoming shows are always listed on our website.
At our live shows, we sell merch, including shirts, stickers, drinkware, dice, pins, and more. We don't have an online store for physical merch yet, so be sure to catch us in person to get that sweet, sweet swag!
We have been performing together for five years! How the time flies!
If you want to support us, thank you! Some ways to do that:
1. Tell your friends about our music!
2. Come to a show!
3. Buy our albums and merch!
4. Tell your favorite fandom con you want to see us perform there!
5. Post glowing reviews on iTunes, Google Play, etc.!

Join us from your very own home/lair/dungeon/sky kingdom/underwater base/moon sanctuary for a LIVE SHOW on the INTERNET Saturday, February 3! We'll be singing some music (including a brand-new song!) and then doing our popular drinking game panel. You won't want to miss us rolling D20s and telling our favorite silly stories from conventions!
RSVP for the Facebook event to be alerted to the link to watch the broadcast.
"Ya gotta be there" for the panel - we will only be archiving the concert portion online afterwards.
Got a song request? Hit us up on The Twitter.
**Recommend 18+ audience. We will swear and sing about sex. A lot.**
When we choose where to perform, we take a lot of things into consideration. We love reaching new audiences. We're eager to support diverse communities. We want to support events where we both love to attend AND love to perform. But sometimes things change after commitments are made.
In light of recent revelations regarding Wicked Faire and its founder, we have made the decision to cancel our appearance at Wicked Faire this year, and will not apply to perform at future JME events.
We’ve never canceled a con appearance before, and we did not make this decision lightly. We take pride in honoring our commitments. To our fans who had looked forward to seeing our shows and panels, and to con staff and volunteers who will have to make last-minute changes to schedules, printed materials, and room setups, we sincerely apologize.
However, as a band and as individuals, we could not, in good conscience, continue associating our name with this event. Please note that we won’t discuss the accusations on our social media channels, and we will delete comments about the accusations from this thread. There are legal issues at play here, so we ask that you please respect this request. There are other venues where they can be discussed, if you wish to do so.
In lieu of our Wicked Faire performances, we are planning a live-streamed concert and panel discussion Saturday, Feb. 3. The concert will be available to watch on our YouTube channel anytime after the show. We’ll be debuting at least one brand-new song during the show, and we’ll present one of our popular panels after the concert. Grab a drink and join us for some fun!
Thank you all for your understanding and continued support. We know our fans hold us to a high standard, and we work hard to live up to it.
It's a new year, and we've got new songs and new gigs coming atcha, starting in February!
We got the official video back from WE BOLDLY GO: A CABARET WHERE NO ONE HAS GONE BEFORE and we made you a nice little video of one of our brand-new songs, "Do You Take It...?" Enjoy!
As a band that has been proudly ruining sea shanties for nigh on 5 years now, we had a blast performing on Talk Like a Pirate Day at The Limerick Pub. We debuted the third of our newest songs from the past two months: "Mansplain Man," set to the tune of "Hanging Johnny." The crowd also laughed along with our other two newest: "Bibliophilia" and "Do You Take It Up the Ass?" (The latter written and made famous by Four Poofs and a Piano.) And best of all, the Limerick had 5 drink specials on our honor: the Mist-behavin' Maiden, the Rouge, the Velvet Saber, the Lucky Annie, and Blood of Flint's Enemies.
Our next show is Oct. 11 at the New Deal Café. Hope to see you there!
Thanks to Camp Variety Cabaret for including us as the Misbehavin' Crew of the USS Enterprise last night at WE BOLDLY GO: A CABARET WHERE NO ONE HAS GONE BEFORE! It was so fun to don our new Starfleet uniforms and perform with so many passionate Trekkies.
Until then...four to beam out!
We know it's only August and barely time to even bust out the Halloween decorations (not that that's stopping Rouge), and YET somehow our 2018 has already gotten very full! Which is amazing!
We're still waiting to announce one more gig (watch for that in the next few weeks), but we already have 10 gigs on the calendar for next year. WOW!
We're super excited to announce we will be performing at RuffleCon, an alternative fashion convention in Stamford, Connecticut, this October!
We'll be doing two stage performances, a few "pop up" performances, and a few panels over the course of the weekend of Oct. 14-16. Learn more about the convention here.
