How does Abby Jeanne wrap up a year that included a four-show “Fire In February” residency, a WMSE Record Store Day 7-inch, a flurry of high-profile festival gigs, a well-deserved $20,000 Backline grant, a successful “Cosmic Weekend” in her honor, and the announcement of a January 5 release show at Turner Hall? With a holiday release, of course!
With the help of her band of “Hi-Fi Misfits,” Abby Jeanne will release a “wintry” 7-inch called Isle Of Misfit Toys. The two-song release includes the title track on one side, and a French version of the song on the other side. The songs will be available digitally on November 16, and the yuletide 45 will be available on multi-colored (red, white, and green) vinyl on November 23. Limited to just 250 copies, the 7-inch—the first release on “Hi-Fi Records”—will be available at Milwaukee’s Exclusive Company, Rush Mor Records, Luv Unlimited, Bullseye Records, Acme Records. Hi-Fi will also celebrate the release with a party from 3-10 p.m. on November 23.
