What does Loup-Garou mean?/ Why Loup-Garou?
The Loup Garou is a French legend of a human who changes into a wolf at his/her own will. Its not a werewolf because a werewolf can only change with the moon and a loup garou can change at any time. It's an homage to a friend of some of the band that passed away a few years ago.
Taken From Loup Garou's Blog:
It's been a good week in the land of Loup-Garou. We've been working on some new songs, and we'll be playing at least two brand new songs at Our Girls Show on November 3rd!
Now, on to some questions:

A: HA!.. No. We are running a facebook campaign for our Our Big November Show Girls Girls Girls! (which you can learn more about right.... here!: http://www.facebook.com/events/459441310766900/
We are doing some promotion with a Little Town Sound (http://www.facebook.com/LittleTownSound) and Dustin Gilmore from http://dustingilmorephoto.com/ will be on hand taking pictures of the bands and the fans. We are thankful the support from them as well as Matthew's Bar and Grill for helping us put together what will be a great show.
Q: I saw a painting/poster/ etc of your band stuff. Who does your artwork?
