Phil and I had a flat tire on the way back downtown from rehearsal. I think at one point we may have been driving on a surface that isn’t usually considered as “road”, but it was dark and rainy and we really shouldn’t be nit-picky.
Everybody got home safe and sound, and we’ll live to play some rock-and-roll another day, like one of these: http://www.sjatr.com/shows
We had a nice and tidy rehearsal yesterday, and it was good to have Eric “Hobbs” Habermeier (pictured left) back on guitar:
He was away on holiday in the Dominican Republic, but now he’s returned and glowing with vitamin D.
You can’t make Voltron without the green lion, it’s nice to hear Hobbs’ guitar in the mix again.
We’ll see you on Wednesday at the Can Can under Pike Place Market!
We had a good long rehearsal this evening, and clearly Benjamin has had enough. We’re ready for our show tomorrow eve though, and Benjamin will resume hitting the drums then:
We’ll see you Friday night at the Blarney Stone!
Dear friends, first off, I started my Sunday with the
realization that Red Rose Speedway by Paul McCartney is on Spotify.
Playlist saved, locked on repeat. And then we had a great rehearsal
this afternoon. This band is fekkin great, come and check out one
of our upcoming shows: www.sjatr.com/shows
After that, I got back and finished off a new song, and now I’m
just listening to Red Rose Speedway again with a cup of tea and I’m
going to finish a book lent to me by Phil Hirschi (who will be
playing cello at these upcoming shows with us).
As you can probably guess, I like the subject matter of the book.
I’ve been going full-sail-ahead with rehearsals lately, and today, literally. Today’s jam session was on a sail boat on Lake Union, and the weather was perfect for it. Lovely.
I’m just hanging out down in the studio eating about 23lbs of french fries (with a bottle of Cholula) while waiting for Luca to get here so we can play some rock-and-roll.
It’s delicious. Hit me up if you want the recipe.
Well, it’s 4AM and who could blame me for taking the wrong way at this hour. But it was a super productive day, and my first day back in Venice so I’m making the most of it. We booked a show at the House of Blues on Sunset today, we’ll be playing on the 12th of May at 11PM. Bring your boogie pockets, we’re going to have some new stuff to show you and maybe even have something for you to take home…
Luca and I met up tonight and rehearsed for a few hours and discussed our audition schedule. We’re auditioning for bass players, keyboardists, and cellists, send me a note if you’re interested in coming around and jamming. Sometimes it’s a little bit fun, and sometimes it’s a lot of fun, it’s kind of up to you.
I met up with some really good musician friends tonight and they just finished up recording their record. I’m cheerfully jealous of them. Don’t worry, we’ll have our record done by 2049, your grandkids will love it.
2AM Chinese food saved my life. I’m missing some of the food up in Seattle though, flamed cheese at the Greek restaurant in Ballard was probably my favourite. I’ll be back in a couple of months for it, and maybe even some more work.
Well, I’ve been a lazy guest at this party and should rejoin them. G’night my dears!
I don’t know what’s worse, my extremely webbed fingers or the fact that they’re bleeding everywhere during rehearsal tonight. Rock and Roll has no respect for skin.
