In honor of their record release and the heat wave that is crossing the US this summer, BOAT is taking requests for their KEXP performance on August 4th at 12pm Pacific. All requests need to have the word summer, heat, hot, or sweat in the title.

BOAT will choose one entry out of a hat and learn it, in order to play it. Then they will reveal the winner live on KEXP by playing the song. The winner will receive a BOAT tee shirt and a copy of Songs That You Might Not Like, as well as a copy of the out of print Make Way For the Genius to Appear single and a handful of random BOAT buttons.

All entries must be received in the inbox by midnight on Tuesday August 1st.

As they come in entries to the cover song contest will be posted at

Thanks….make sure to include your name with your entry.

What kind of hat will be used for this "drawing". This information is important so that I know how many song and which songs to enter. It's all so much pressure! Will Dave learn violin if the Dirty Three song "Some Summers They Drop Like Flys" wins?

Suggesting a Dirty Three song is like suggesting they play a song by Social Distortion.... lame! Hey, while you're at it why don't you throw a couple Harry Connick, Jr. songs as well?

Mr. Glover I'm digging the Dirty Three cover song is totally not "lame." Is anything more lame than using the word lame? Oh and by the way I miss showing up to school wearing the same exact shirt from Old Navy. How're the kids?

I've got to say that all other suggestions besides "That Summer Feeling" by Jonathan Richman should be ignored, no offense to the Dirty Three and or Mr. Glover.

A possible exception would be "Hotwire My Heart" by Sonic Youth. I don't know if hotwire violates the terms and conditions though.

Zach wasn't really down for littering Boat's blog with personal attacks (joking or not).
