All Things Can Tempt Me

I'm deep in the procrastination zone right now. I'm supposed to be working, but I can't!

I decided to start an additional blog, actually, to document an issue that I feel really strongly about. I hope to call attention to a lot of silent suffering with this one, and put a human face on an issue too many of us laugh off or talk about in hushed tones. The blog is called Ugly Ric.

I'll post some video of The Fire Tapes and Red Satellites soon, promise. I got four thirty-second clips, featuring snippets of two Fire Tapes songs and two Red Satellites songs.

Here's a picture I took of the Sat's set list while we were cleaning up. 

I also took this picture of people who were in front of the stage after the show was over.

And I took this picture of our set list when I got home.

By the way, we skipped Sibella (as usual). I swear: next time we're opening with it!

Just Got Back

That show was awesome! I have nothing but good things to say about The Fire Tapes and Red Satellites. I have both video and pictures which I'll post over the weekend. For now you'll have to be content with this, which is also completely awesome in every way.

Show on Friday!!!!!

We're playing with Red Satellites and The Fire Tapes tomorrow, that being Friday the 19th of November, 2010. The show is at the Tea Bazaar and is $5.

Also I have revamped the blog, as people were saying it looked a little stale.

Red Satellites are celebrating the release of a new CD, which I hope everybody will buy.

For those of us who don't celebrate the weekend before Thanksgiving as if it were some kind of actual holiday, this show is going to be the hottest thing going down this week!

November Spawned a Monster of Rock

Fall is here in all its chilly glory! Now I can finally break out my special Kubla Khan inspired "fast thick pants" that were too warm to wear before.

It's election day today. I'll spare you my thoughts on that this time around. Go vote (unless you're a Republican).

Also, this:

which is going to be awesome. The flier pretty much says it all, including how I feel about Dave and Renee going on holiday without me (sniff).

There are rumors afoot about 1) the cover charge (which I'll post here as soon as I know it) and 2) another band being added to the bill. No word on order or anything yet, but I assume the Satellites will be playing last since no one in their right mind would want to follow them. If we end up going on after the Satellites, though, I think it would only be fair to expect Kris to take his shirt off.

[Edit: 1) The door will be the usual Tea Bazaar fiver, 2) It'll just be three bands, us, the Sats, and The Fire Tapes, whom I'm quite excited to see.]

Lots more action coming up as soon as all the posters are states-side. We're pretty close to finished recording, and there's still a chance (if slim) that we'll get the record out this year. It's going a lot faster this time, but there's three times as many songs. Then there's mixing, which I feel was the weakest aspect of the EP (totally my fault), so I really don't want to rush that. Once that's done, though, mastering and pressing should only take a week or so. We also plan to play a show in December, though nothing's set up yet.
