noise>not noise

September 16, 2008

Aaahhhh! What an awful show last night at Hotshots! Packed crowd full of people excited to finally catch me live.. faulty wires/faulty synth? Who knows what the fuck it was, but it was complete FAIL. I’m really rethinking everything with this solo performance thing. I need a new BAND. I want to be the background guy again. Anyways, I’d like to thank Chris for playing with me, Jesse for helping put the show together, Worlds of Shit, Firefighter Font and Pandha Piranha. Everyone else put on an awesome show!

The show next Monday I’ll be doing a noise set.. no songs. So yea, come out and cover your ears.

I also just jumped on the bill for next Wednesday’s Kings Tavern show with Severe Severe (who just played the SoCo Music Fest with MGMT and Justice) and Childbite (from Detroit). not totally sure what I want to do for that one, performance wise. We’ll see..

As for the cd.. it’s awesome.. you’ll hear it someday.

oh sweet summer 2008 you finally are coming to an end. i can’t tell you how ecstatic i am for this shit year to be past me, christ.

Mill Fest v.5 has come and gone, which means the summer is really over. I had a blast thanks to Math (bastards), Beware, Pandha Piranha, Sub-Bombin, Ear the Eye the Arm, Boston Celtics, William Hale and whomever else performed that I’ve forgot.

September’s coming and I’ve got lots of shows. Sadly the bill for the 15th has changed, Audibel and AIDS can’t make it, so I’ll be playing with Pandha Piranha and the wonderful Worlds of Shit. It’s gonna be a good one. Hopefully the Math show falls through, keep your toes crossed.

I’ve got two untitled new songs that will def make “Dog Buys Pistol“. However I’ve scrapped two more, so that leaves me in the same spot with nine songs. It’s coming, slowly but surely.

see you guys at Hotshots..
