No, Calahoney won't take your dinner order, then wash the dishes. (Although, they might consider it, if you ask nice and promise to buy their album.) Truth is, Josue Cruz and Laura Askins don't even run a restaurant. They're a husband-and-wife duo who "teach in the winter and rock in the summer." And so far, these Miami-based alt-folkies haven't wasted a single second of summer vacation '09, releasing their second album Slow Stride before setting off on the Enjoy Your Day Job tour, an intercontinental June-July jaunt from Miami to NYC to Merry Olde England and back.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
