Finally! A good snowy day, let’s cozy up and lay down some tunes. Last week, I helped Eternal Summers record some demos of some new material for their next album that they will be recording in Austin, TX. I did a simplistic micing and recorded the instruments all at once and had Nicole do her vocals after. Here are the amps and drums and mics and stuff…
The Missionaries as well are recording! We have a small tour coming up so we wanted to make a quick and limited EP to share on our travels. We spent from 3:30pm – 2:30am (11 freakin hours!!) in our space, but all the music is completed. The tracks sound great and we shall be finishing vocals some time this week.
and last, I want to share a video I took at The Bazaar last Saturday night. Eros & The Eschaton from Greensboro, NC played an amazing set. Can’t wait to catch them again. This was the last song of their set:
Here is one of my latest instrumentals I have completed. Hope you like it! It’s entitled “Race Horse Ready” because it has that fast, right out of the gates feeling.
Tonight, The Missionaries will be traveling a little ways North up Interstate 81 to Lynchburg. We are joining our friends Steal The Prize for a show at Rivermont Pizza. Show starts at 10pm sharp! See ya’ll there!
2496 Rivermont Ave, Lynchburg, Virginia 24503
Tomorrow, at The Shelf House Dead In The Dirt is finishing up their tour here in Roanoke. Along with some rocking locals Tiebreaker and True Burn. Should be an awesome night of some heavy tunes!!! I’d bring your ear plugs!
DEAD IN THE DIRT
1st show of 2013 was a great show, one of my favorites so far! Hello Shark from Burlington, Vermont kicked the night off and dished out some great indie rock tunes. Woolens then played and were amazing! It’s great to see them outside of our practice space doing their thing! The next day I took Hello Shark around Roanoke the tour included a trip to our famous Star of the Star City.
1st show this year at the Shelf House this Friday! Woolens is a 3 piece rock band I have had the pleasure share a practice space with, will be playing with Hello Shark from Vermont.
Sunday and Monday I tracked with some friends out of Covington, VA. We did live cuts and built a few as well. Here’s all the action!
1st of the year and I am so late on updating so lets finish up 2012.
Through December 1st- 16th I went on tour with Eternal Summers and Nada Surf and wanted to share some photos from that:
We had one last show at The Shelf House in 2012. December 27th The Situationist, one of my all time favorite local bands and my roommates’ band Another Roadside Attraction and Myself had a celebration of all the shows we had in this basement.

also I booked a New Year’s show at Fork in the City and it was a Hit!
So I am on the road again, this time with my friends Eternal Summers. My job on the trip: running the merch table, fixing amps, keeping morale up and whatever I can do to help. We have been out for 7 days so far and just met up with the very awesome Nada Surf. The shows are in some great venues, starting in mid-West and coming back to the East coast. Tonight we are in Milwaukee at the beautiful Turner Hall Ballroom.
I am taking tons photos and videos along the way capturing all the action and fun times.
