On September 26th, 2012, much earlier in the day than any rock band should, we headed to the KEXP studios to do a live performance on Cheryl Water’s Midday Show. Inconspicuously roaming amongst us were a few folks with cameras. This is what they shot:
“As the Clouds Drift By”
“Ever Feel So Down”
“Free to Go Back Home”
Host: Cheryl Waters
Engineer: Kevin Suggs
Cameras: Jim Beckmann & Scott Holpainen
Editing: Luke Knecht
KEXP’s local show Audioasis, asked us if we would be interested in playing one of their monthly benefit shows and we jumped at the opportunity to support this month’s recipient, YouthCare.
The show is Saturday, November 3rd at the Sunset Tavern. RSVP to the event here and purchase tickets here (only $7 in advance). We are sharing the bill with fellow local Seattle bands, Western Medicine and Tokyoidaho.
From YouthCare: “YouthCare builds confidence and self-sufficiency for homeless youth by providing a continuum of care that includes outreach, basic services, emergency shelter, housing, counseling, education, and employment training.” If you’d like to learn more or get involved, check out their website.
We’re excited and honored to be playing Seattle’s City Arts Fest 2012 alongside a huge lineup of really incredible artists. Our show is Thursday October 18th with Dusty 45s, Vince Mira Band, and Legendary Oaks at Barboza. Start time is 7pm and we’re up first so if you plan on coming out make sure not to miss our set.
If you want to see other shows, wristbands can be purchased for every show for all four days at the City Arts site. Or you can get a single ticket at this link.
Tune in today for a live performance on KEXP. We’ll be playing a few songs off our new, second album plus a new, as-yet-unreleased song and speaking with Cheryl Waters during her Midday Show. 90.3 on your radio dial if you’re in Seattle or anywhere around the world at KEXP.org.
In other news, David and I (Hamilton) spent the morning printing and assembling some promo CDs for some radio and press and other old school peeps. Thank you once again to Harrison Boyce for pulling through with the design.
