June retrospective

In Events, Hidden Number, Reviews, Shout Outs on June 28, 2009 at 4:38 pm

Okay, so everyone is telling us that our previous show at the Nectar show was one of the best sounding shows we’ve had, so congratulations to the sound guy!  And a huge thank you to everyone who stuck around to the very end.  And let’s thank Mauricio, who set the whole thing up.  I’m sure your faces were in agony from all the laughs preceding us; not to mention being substantially exhausted from Canadian funnyman Brad Brake, who somehow ended up being shirtless in a thong by the end of the show, right?  Were we at the same show?  I’m pretty sure that’s what I was seeing, and it hurt.  How does one follow up that kind of energy?  By having an excellent sound system, and a professional running it.  I’m voting for this as my favorite venue to play at to date, although sometimes it’s all about the moment.  Anyway, Sir Christian Staunts got us on video, so we’re going to see if we can’t just jam that straight into the tubes, if you do not mind our endulgence.   So keep your RSS feed readers hungry and alert.

For those of you who are wondering what the heck happened in the middle of the set, that was Joe singing a song that we reserve only when Dean is under the influence of the BSOD (i.e. UIBSOD).  So that was in fact three never before heard ditties:  Mesopotamia (B-52s), Don’t Come Around Here No More (Tom Petty), and Untitled (Joe Stuhff).

Since the show, we were informed by Jim of an elequent review of the show  that adds some context to the evening’s festivities.

It was a great cap, to a productive month.  We’ve knocked out a substantial amount of drum & bass tracks, and are one session away from posting Friends 4 Ever publicly, because we like you.

Upcoming show:  We are grabbing a shift along side My Bones and Organs at the Sunset,  Sunday July 19th.  It’s an early show, but that’s good because it’s about time that you got some sleep before work on Monday, you loitering hooligan.

We never know what’s going to happen at any show, but things usually end up taking a turn for the surreal.  Last time, a song got changed into an ode to Tesh.  This time is sure to get stranger.  We’re the only just straight ahead band, and then the rest of the night becomes a trip down the rabbit hole.

Come and join us at the Nectar on Tuesday.  Obviously, this venue is extremely important to us, and we really need your help with this one in creating a huge party to kick things off.  Spread the word!

Our illustrious Dean aka Pope Supremesus has allied himself with Mademoiselle X aka Virginia Dare to bring you a collection tracks that smother you in sexy feelings of loneliness and enlightenment. 


In other news, we’re going camping this weekend.  Hopefully the whole thing will go down like a cross between Blair Witch and The Wicker Man.  x-fingers crossed-x
