Hidden Number live at Sunset Tavern, 4pm Sunday July 19th, 2009

The title sez it all.  Yet, dare I also mention that we’re  opening for My Bones and Organs and The Keeper?!  I dare.  Note the very excellent time on Sunday, which will give everyone plenty of time to get home so that they write that important report due Monday.  Please include charts and graphs.  How else will you stay competitive in this economic climate?  We are staying competitive by throwing in some Misfits songs in our set.

Dare I also direct you to a top notch video of our Tom Petty cover of “Don’t Come Around Here No More” posted by Chris?  Double dared.

We at Hidden Number hope your Independence Day (or plain vanilla Saturday) was a festive occasion.  A few of us spent time on the very boat from whence came Manos de Plata’s  brand new album, and watched the Seattle fireworks bobbing upon the waters of Lake Union.  We stood in the very chamber in the belly of the Sea Devil, and I double dog dare say that the reverb was palpable.  I hope you appreciate that the next time you listen.

June retrospective

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.
