Hey dudes, it’s Saturday night! But instead of going to see Major Taylor spin at Bonny’s (must resist the urge to dance), I’m resting up because I’ve been a bit under the weather lately. And you know I’ve gotta be in practically perfect health, because we’ve got our first show coming up!
As previously mentioned, it’s Wednesday the 1st, at Schubas, with Mark Rose (!) and I believe we go on at 8pm. Come on out and hang with us! After our set, I’m gonna need a drink or three, and I’d like to have them with you.
Guess what else? We recorded a song last week! We headed over to Million Yen studios Thursday night, where the patient and always smiling Jeff Dean hooked it up, literally.
We wrote the song for the upcoming Suburban Sprawl records holiday comp, which we’re very excited to be a part of. You can check out comps from previous years here. There’s some real holiday magic in there. We’ll be sharing our contribution with you soon.
After more than a few hours, and some tasteful decision making, we came out with a finished product that we can all stand by. It felt great to hear what we sounded like recorded AND to work together in the studio. Practice, studio, stage. It’s always different. It’s almost always exciting. This time was no exception. I usually have trouble hearing myself sing, (ok, I hate it) but after 4 or 5 times, I just started to pretend like it was somebody else. I think it worked! My band mates were kind. My engineer gave me tough love. We all brought our A game and we definitely had fun.
I think it will be even more fun to play this show. Bad Boys will see you Wednesday, Schubas.
