4/7/02There are some new gig dates up, and a little blurb about what Nanner's been doing with herself post-BF. Soon, there will be blurbs about all of us! Or that's the plan, anyway.
3/8/02Lookee! I put some pretty Trouble Dolls pics on my page...I'll add some actual text or something later. No time now. Enjoy!
2/21/02Okay, you're never gonna believe this, but I swear it's true! I put some pictures up...yep, I really did. They're not exactly "new" but they're less than a year old and hey, I think that's pretty damn cool of me. I realize that you come here to see something new, and since I'm a such a nice girl, I'm giving you what you want! Plus, I think we've broken some kind of record for "former-band with the most photos of themselves." And there are more where they came from...oh, there are always more.
1/26/02Yo dudes...there are bunches of new gig dates listed on the dates page. We got some solo Leener, some solo Nanner, some Schwervonner and some Trouble Doller (aka Pammer).
1/23/02If you're here, then you already know what's happening and I don't have to say anything. I'll have some news eventually though...just keep comin' back.
1/6/02Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a lovely holiday...I know I did, but I'm glad it's over.
I got bored today and decided to put up the program that I created for our 5th Anniversary Party. So if you were unable to get your hot little hands on a copy while you were at the party, or if you were too "busy" to come, read it and weep...or just read it. Really, I don't expect tears. I think the green background is a little too bright, but again...I was bored, so forgive me if it hurts your eyes.
11/20/01Thanks to everyone who came to our 5th Anniversary/Wedding last Saturday. We had a fabulous time getting married and playing with all of our friends. Now we're on our long-awaited Honeymoon, but we'll be back in action early next year. And hey, don't think I won't be adding web content...I have a huge backlog of stuff I've been meaning to put up, so come back soon!
10/30/01We're back from the Midwest...as always, it's good to be home again, but damn we had fun out there! Our 5th Anniversary is coming up and we're celebrating with a gig and a bunch of our closest friends. See dates for the deets. It'll be our last gig for a couple of months, so don't miss it!
10/3/01We cut our rehearsal short last night so that we could all come over to our place, order pizza and watch the 2 hour season premiere of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." Are we obsessed? Oh, maybe a little. Nan sums it up in a letter to Sarah Michelle Gellar.
10/2/01We're slowly getting back to normal around here. The Arlene Grocery gig was a lot of fun. Thanks to the Trouble Dolls for setting that up!
BF is going back out to the Midwest for one week at the end of October...we just can't get enough of that place! Mom's putting us up for the whole week this time. Yeehaw!
9/13/01We just want to thank everybody who has been checking in on us in the aftermath of the WTC attack. We're all safe and sound, and we hope you are as well. As far as I know, none of us knew anyone who might have been in those buildings on Tuesday, but if you know of a common acquaintance or friend who is missing or who is safe, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. Thanks.
9/5/01BF is in the Village Voice this week (9/5-9/11/01)! There's a big ol' nasty pic and everything! Tell yer friends...it's an article about Ladyfest East. And hey, come on out to that Ladyfest East thing...it's gonna rock yer socks off.
8/9/01The tour diary has been updated! Nan added some silly comments and I just put up 12...count 'em, 12 pics! Check it all out.
BF is being featured on Radio Mike's online station...go take a listen...he's having an all-female theme for awhile...rock on Mike!

7/28/01Okay, my tour diary is up. And Nan has told me that she'll be adding her own notes to it soon, so stay tuned for some additions. But in the meantime, you can read what's up.
Thanks to The Trouble Dolls and Red Hot Secret for such a great gig at Meow Mix last night. We enjoyed everybody's sets. Oh, and Triple Creme and Tribe 8 both rocked it hard at The Lounge under CB's Gallery...we popped in after we left Meow Mix. Tribe 8 cracked me up!
7/26/01What'd I tell ya...we're back home already! And we have our new EPs! "Honeymoon Deluxe" is now available for purchase at gigs and will soon be available online as well. Of course if you live in Indiana, you can go to Orbit Music at the Town & Country mall in Mishawaka to pick up your own precious copy.
We had a kickass time (again!) in the Midwest, and a tour diary will be up within the next few days. Check back soon!
7/16/01To be sung in an upbeat cowboy style: Oh! Weeee're...leavin' tomorrow in "Betsy" fer the Mid-west! Yes! We're leavin' tomorrow in "Betsy" but we won't be gone fer long! Hey!
6/24/01BF was the "Showcased" artist on Girlmedia.com for this month or this week or something...anyway, it's a fun site, so check it out.
Frogdog rocked Luna Lounge last night! Thanks you for coming all the way to crazy NYC for one show...we love you!
6/17/01Thanks to everyone who came out to the Rising Cafe last Friday for our "unplugged (but not really)" show! It was lots of fun, and I came out of it with minimal bruises on my hands.
Personal plug: I (Pammer, that is) am attempting to create my own webdesign business! I've done one site so far other than BF's, and have two more coming up. I am cheap right now, but am hoping to be able to live off of this in about a month or two. So if you need a website done, please contact me. Oh...I've decided to call the company redcat web design.
We'll have a 4-song EP ready by the end of July (keep yer fingers crossed!). It will be titled "Honeymoon Deluxe." You'll be able to order your very own precious copy right from this site! Keep checking back for details

1/20/01Okay, so I should have put these articles up awhile ago, but I didn't because...well, there's really no excuse. Anyway, here are some things that the girls recently wrote for various online zines and such. Check 'em out and see what the Fingers are thinking about!
"Rockrgrl Weekend and Oh Courtney and Olympia: Nov. 2-6, 2000, Seattle WA," by Nanon Turner (Punknet, December 2000)
"Bionic Finger's Take on the Rockrgrl Music Conference," by Alina Moscovitz (Gogirls Music, January 2001)
"Take Back the Radio," by Christine Murray (Rockerchick Zine, January 2001)
1/15/01BF's Brownies gig is now up on the Digital Club Network! It's in the archives. You go to DCN, then go to the "bands" page. When you get there, you can look up bands alphabetically. Obviously, "b" will take you to Bionic Finger. And then you have to sign up to DCN...you know the drill, get a password and all that. It's tres facile, and then you can watch the Fingers at their first Brownies gig!
Digital Club Network
The Fingers are working on lots of new material including: a rewrite of one of Nan's songs, featuring lyrics written by each of the girls, plus a wacky collaborative chorus; a cover of one of Bon Jovi's biggest hits; and new songs by Nan and Alina!
Bionic Finger's first tour is approaching...details soon to come!
