There is a world outside, and it’s not as chilly as you think. It’s time to do something new. Without change, something sleeps inside us and seldem awakens. The sleeper must awaken.
So, come on out and meet our new bass player, Justin. He dabbles in electronics, puppies, and marathons.

The 2011 Hidden Number Human_Error Tour of 2011

In Events, Hidden Number, Philosophy, Science on August 1, 2011 at 11:40 pm

Dearest friends, it is the year 2011.

We have flying cars.

We have slave robots.

Yet, we do not have personalized human cloning that would enable Hidden Number clones to live in your attic and come down to perform the songs from our hit record, Human_Error, for you at your every whim. This is why we have organized for the original, non-cloned band members to leave the Magnet Large & Small dungeon and recording studio–to make a sojourn southward from Seattle, down through the open expanses of Oregon valleys and passes, and then back again. The band must gain these experiences so that we can properly train our future clones.

We were pretty surprised and excited about the turnout at the record release back in May. After 4 long and hard years, it was the culmination of a new state of mind for us. We spent that time getting our new band member Josh up to speed and focusing on new material that brought out the strengths of the new lineup. Josh contributed a bunch of melodic guitar parts, while Dean spent time on expressing with his voice exactly what the new paradigm of lyrics demanded. Joe and Kai worked out some super tight rhythm parts to lay a foundation. Then we iterated over all the songs again and again. Honing, building, distilling. I think we were aiming to inject more expression into the music. We didn’t use any sequencing on the parts, and kept it all live. Together, our souls are very turbulent, and over those 4 years we had a lot of ups and downs in our personal lives and with each other while locked in the same room for hours. And that’s what went into the music. So, at the record release, it was pretty rewarding to look out at a packed Comet and realize that this was the moment it was all leading to. We had to inspire. And we heard from folks that it might have been our best performance to date. I felt like we were all in the band together that night, everyone in the room. Yet it was only for those few in Seattle who could make it, and the moment was fleeting.

The Tour

Hidden Number 2011 Human_Error Tour Dates of 2011

PORTLAND, OR – Thursday, August 4, 2011 – @ Slabtown

EUGENE, OR – Friday, August 5, 2011 – @ The Black Forest

MEDFORD, OR – Saturday, August 6, 2011 – @ Johnny B’s

SEATTLE – Friday, August 12, 2011 – @ The Blue Moon Tavern

In today’s democratized music business, the only rare thing is performance. All the recordings are free. We can consult the oracle whenever we please. Yet, we still cannot be together. So, we want to come and meet you and play some music and hang out. That is the 2011 Hidden Number Human_Error Tour of 2011. Head over to our music site to hear all the songs for free in advance, get a free download, and read some of Dean’s inspiring lyrics.

You can also find out about all the bands we’ll be playing with. First, and foremost Warning: Danger! With these guys rocking, we can all sleep soundly at night. Other bands: Dartgun and the Vignettes, John Wesley Coleman III, Rayon Beach, Los Other Phux, and BioLuminescent Sea Witches. Head over to ReverbNation to listen to most of these bands.

Keep in Touch

We’ll try to update everyone on the progress. You can keep in touch on our facebook page, or through Twitter. Follow @DeanAlanSwanson or @kaiweb.

What’s New

We just created a YouTube channel, and have been posting some videos that feature exerpts from the Human_Error record release performance. We’re going to try to repeat this performance at every stop on the tour, so now you know what to expect!

I should also note that we have a bass player filling in for us while on tour–Justin. He’s rad. More on him later. Meanwhile, Joe is moving to a new home with his family and is a top contender for the #1 Dad award on so many levels. It’s a shame we cannot clone him for the tour. And yet, Justin has somehow managed to learn all the songs in record time with a smile on his face–despite at least 4 different emergencies (at least). This guy is a hard worker, and it’s hard to keep up with his creativity. It’s important that you meet him to know what I mean.

What’s your favorite invention of the current future of today? What do you want to know about Justin? What info should we post while on the road? Anything we left out? Let us know…

Thanks, hand stand guy

Hidden Number at the Comet Tavern

 Thanks to everyone for the stupendous turnout, despite it being a Sunday night and our ridiculously early show time!   If you click on this underlined phrase, then some magic electric pictures will appear from the last show at the Comet.  Erynn took these photos.  We are always very happy when he takes pictures, especially when they are of us.  Also, you just can’t go wrong when he gets all tilt shifty.  We played with Dead Cinema, Mr. Frederick, and Black Science, and we’re friends now.  We hope Mr. Fredrick was able to find suitable grilled cheese sandwhiches at 3am that were of the same or higher quality as Portland grilled cheese sandwiches.

It was entertaining when an enebriated gentleman started doing handstands in the front of Black Science.  We were kind of jealous, but I don’t know how those guys held it together.  How does someone with a muted nervous system stay aloft in such a manner, while Black Science is rocking so hard?

Our set list was as follows: Static Age (The Misfits), Human Error, Midnight Beachboy, Fanged 2 Deth, Friendz for Evar, Hybrid Moments (The Misfits), U R Transparent

We want to make friends with you at our next show, and maybe even fall in love.  It’s going to be all about you, baby.  Here are upcoming dates:

(Feb 3 @ Nectar, and Feb 25 @ Rendezvous)

The next show will feature a funny robot.

Hidden Number live at the Comet

Well, rock lovers, it seems the boys are at it again.  Two Thousand and Ten heralds a new year filled with swinging songs for Hidden Number‘s troubadors, and golly they look poised for action.  No arguments here. 

And for just a few extra bob, any Tom, Dick, Harry, or Margaret for that matter, can swagger down to the old Comet Tavern, admire some hustle and bustle of big city life, and then grab themselves a pint along with our boys from the Hidden Number gang. 
 
And that’s not all!  Sure as salt, Black Science, Mr. Frederick, and Dead Cinema will join in on the festivities, to boot.  No RSVP needed, but automobile parking is on the street, so come one, come all, but come early. 
 
Capital Hill just can’t be beat for Sunday night shenanigans!  Just ask your kind policeman; he’ll tell you where to go!
