Radio Radio has Spinto Band, Tally Hall and De Novo Dahl this very evening. Also, Earl Greyhound is coming Wendesday, June 4th – not this weekend, but definitely exciting enough to mention. Sam’s Saloon features Mellow Down Easy tonight, Whitey Morgan and the 78’s along with Javelinas and The Pine Box Boys Saturday, and Goes Cube, The Last Domino and… Read more →
Part of the wonderful challenge of putting together a tech book is that the playing field is always changing – programs update, new versions come out, etcetera. It can be a bit difficult to manage. Now multiply that by the five versions of Vista I have to account for my current project, and all the fun should become clear. I’m… Read more →
So I’m picking up some CDs at a local record store (special order placed on Memorial Day took two days to arrive – these guys are geniuses) when I notice it. Less than a few days after FezFest ’08 (pictures of which can be found here, courtesy of Nuvo and Krissy Bertram), I run across “Sitar Beat! – Indian Style… Read more →
My fair district gets a decent write-up in the Post, so I truly expect the massive throngs of vacationing D.C.-ers and suburban Virginians (Virginianites?) to make their way here. No, really. I do. The Fountainview Inn is over there, and I’ll help with the bags.
‘Cause I love the bulleted lists: Fezfest ’08 was phenomenal, and I loved being able to play to venues within the space of an hour. I missed having the computer with me for the Playboy Psychonauts show, but I thought I covered ably with the other effects I used. I’m a wiz at hanging light fixtures. At the same time,… Read more →
Radio Radio features Everything, Now!, Quiet Hooves and Grampall Jookabox tonight. Freak pop fans, enjoy. Sam’s Saloon has Mouthbreather, Canadian Rifle, Maravich and Sex Before Marriage tonight. Tomorrow brings A Keen Holiday. Deano’s Vino presents Shogun Attractions tonight and the John Harden Project Saturday night. It’s also Swing Dance night at the Fountain Square Theater. And, of course, there’s Victor/Victoria… Read more →
Feel free to enjoy the goodness at IMN or download it directly. Also, there’s a Playboy Psychonauts show tomorrow evening at the Melody Inn, which means I’ll be sloughing off the Victor/Victoria mindset to get right with the fez. I’m fully hoping to play two venues within the same hour. Also there will be fellow fez-sters Vinyl Shriner and The… Read more →
The passionate devouring of liner notes is an time-honored tradition for the music fan. Hoping to glean every last bit of information from the album, they pore over any credits or notes they can find. While some include the bare minimum of information (or forego the process entirely beyond what might be legally required), others write veritable volumes (sometimes more… Read more →
Aside from a sticky footswitch on the second preset, the new bass DI is working fine – good tone and pretty easy to use. I’m sure the pedal is far out of warranty, so I’m wondering what I need to do to get things rolling again. A quick opening of the case might be necessary. I’m getting a lot of… Read more →
New episodes of Metalocalypse are back, and I feel that all is a little bit better for it. Just the right blend of outrageous humor and cringe-worthy brutality. Amazing.
