Donewaiting has always championed Columbus band Phantods, even inviting them to play our Donew8ing anniversary show. So I’m saddened to report the band is calling it quits — or, as they put it on the Facebook status, “going on hiatus for an undetermined amount of time”:
It is bittersweet to announce that July 21st will be our last show! We will be going on hiatus for an undetermined amount of time, in order to explore other things in life ;) We have had so many amazing years in Phantods that have been provided by all of your support and love. The night before our last show, we will be joining Arbor Ave. Films to watch a screening of the documentary that they made about us. They followed us around for over a year, getting behind the scenes shots and live footage. We’d love it if you joined us for both nights. We’ll post more about that screening later in the week. Love you all!!

So, what’s new with Phantods? Besides releasing the video and MP3 for “Music is Dead” (above), the band was recently picked as an “Ohio Band You Should Be Listening To” by Paste Magazine. They’re hoping to book some East Coast shows this summer, and currently are set to perform May 26 @ Woodlands in Columbus, OH along with She Bears and Joshua P. James & the Paper Planes.
The Andyman-A-Thon is a Holiday tradition that is entering it 19th year. The late Andyman Davis would stay on his radio station’s airwaves, awake for 48 hours straight to raise money for children’s charties in Columbus.CD102.5 Listeners were encouraged to call in to request songs and donate money.
The Andyman-A-thon will take place December 16-18th this year.
The 2nd annual Andyman-a-thon Benefit Concert is this Wednesday (Nov. 23) at the LC. Watershed, Nick Tolford & Company, Lydia Loveless, and The Phantods will perform. Check out the event video below.

Friday was the last day of the amazing Music Week Columbus. This night I made it to all three venues to catch Audrey & Orwell, Maza Blaska and Moon High at Rumba, Phantods at Kobo and finally Town Monster at Rumba Cafe.
We’re all big Phantods fans here at Donewaiting headquarters and we’re totally stoked about being able to give you the world premiere of the new Phantods, “Time & Teresa”, on Monday. The song can be found on the band’s 2010 release, Creature (buy now on iTunes).
Keep checking back, we’ll post it as soon as we get it from the band! And while you wait, how about checking out the video they did for “The Promising” earlier this year.
Last week I photographed the CD101 Local show competition of the Phantods, Town Monster and Wet Darlings. The winner (Phantods) would go on to play CD101 Day at LC Pavilion with a gaggle of class national acts!
