harry stuck a camera on a tripod during our last gig at the fox den and captured these videos. the incomparable sean macgillivray is backing me up on the vocals which is always awesome.
for your sake:
here is the same song (an earlier version of the song, and a completely different lineup) taken in 2002! twelve years really makes a difference.
here are two more cover songs that i recorded today. the first is evaporated by ben folds, and the second is judy g by sarah harmer and her old band weeping tile. next on the list is going to be some original songs that i haven't gotten around to demo-ing yet.
keep an eye on the sidebar for upcoming events, including a yellow show on the 19th. i will have just finished all of my school work two days before hand so it might be a real good one. plus my pal lachie's band dyscontrol is playing too. at any rate, you can buy me a graduation drink!
maybe i will start making cell phone videos when i have spare time. here is possibly my favorite odds song ever, suppertime.
here is a poster for the show this week. i'm playing with two of my very bestest friends, so i am very excited about this one. i have been few and far between with my updates because i am in my last few weeks of school before i GRADUATE. i'll let you know how it goes.
jenni welsh sent me a nice little note today. it reminded me of how she is an wonderful person and an incredible talented artist. i am going to try to convince her to make another video with me soon. for now, watch this excellent video in which i look and sound much cooler than i actually am, due to her skills:
and check out this new video that she did for heartwood slacks. holy smokes this sounds and looks amazing.
well i feel burned out. my semester away was very difficult. i rocked it, but it meant that when i got home i just wanted to crash. and instead of crashing, well, i played 4 shows which consisted of 9 sets with 5 bands. so now i am having a sort of delayed crash. and since the crash means that i am procrastinating while i'm supposed to be doing homework for a class in what is my final semester of my undergraduate degree, i felt i should write a post on my website.
i think the shows mostly went well. they reinforced my feelings that i don't like to play quiet shows in noisy bars, and that there's nothing better than playing music with the people i love and admire.
the crash has me thinking about other things too. since right now i feel like doing nothing at all, of course my brain wants me to feel guilty about all the things i should be doing. and there are so many. i want to start putting on all ages shows. i want to write a personal song for each of my friends. i want to learn how to play the drums. i want to find a job (this one might be more of a need). i want to start a science blog so that one day i might get a better job in my chosen field. i want to learn how to brew beer. i want to start at least 3 new bands - one of which would be a bass and drums duo.
we'll have to wait and see if any of these things come to fruition. but in the meanwhile, watch these videos of bass and drums bands, the first one is my favorite band the inbreds, and the second is a video of my friends rad and subtract:
just a reminder that i love christmas music, and i have a bunch of christmassy recordings for you to download for free! just click on the image below. i also uploaded all of the xmas songs to youtube. you can check out the playlist by clicking here, if you're into the streaming thing. i'll also be selling the xmas album at my holiday shows for a very reasonable price, in case people still buy cds.
here is a poster for the show on dec 21 by one of my classmates, hannah fiegenbaum. before you ask, yes, that is a pirate wizard riding a unicorn while shooting lightning, surrounded by sharks jumping out of a ring of hellfire. most rock and roll image of all time? you decide.
