Hey Little Birdie, why are you so FAR?

Little birdie on the street says that FAR is playing 5 songs at tonight's Deftones benefit for Chi. Johnny, FAR's bass player can't make the show, BUT Octavio is filling in from the band known as, Friday Nights.

Going to the Mastodon/Dethklok/Converge/High On Fire show tonight tho, FAR is not playing tomorrow tho, too bad I'll be missing out. But I'll be going to the benefit tomorrow night.

Friday the 13th Part 5,000

Last Friday's Red Sparowes show was great--it was FREE as well as the beer. They played all songs off of their newly released Aphorisms [EP] and a total of 45min. Included was visuals from a projector which I hope to get some photos here on this blog. Without further adieu:

What a sad show, people left the Alterknit Lounge after 2 or 3 songs--though their intention was mainly to watch the previous band. There were only 2 of us to watch System and Station and since there were just me and another dude, the band played only 5 songs. By request of the band, I took out the 4th song of the set due to some difficulties. Enjoy...

These Baby Arms

This is a show from early this year @ Spaceland. The Babyland show was done spliced a couple months ago and I was waiting for a friend to help me out w/the setlist. That person disappeared so I got help from a friend on Note: the last song gets cut cause my ride arrives and the bands that night were starting late.

These Arms Are Snakes tore it up last month @ the Knitting Factory and were amazing. They played in the front stage and went on last while I watched Far open for Thursday in the main stage/room. First time I saw Touche Amore, cool band, good music. But TAAS, were on fire, check out this set:

The Red Sparowes set from Friday's Vacation Vinyl FREE In-Store is ready to roll, I just need to free up some Hard Drive space for the WAVs to fit. I will upload that shortly--perhaps tomorrow or I mean during the day today.

Tonight (Saturday Night) I saw Helms Alee, Young Widows, and Russian Circles at the Echoplex. Well, during Russian Circles set, the Minidisc started acting up. Not certain if I'll release the choppy set in its entirety tho. I was impressed with Young Widows, they somewhat reminded me of Barkmarket. Awesome set.

Over and out

Ed R09 RIP...

Yup, the fun machine took a shit and died on me last week Wednesday. This was at the Glassjaw show @ the Mayan. Let me mention the sound was terrible there. It was plain awful. Sound was bouncing all over the place. Guitars weren't loud enough or the way their speakers for the venue were set up was not good at all. Oh well, I must be going to Russian Circle/Young Widows/Helms Alee tonight. I will elaborate on the Ed later. Later!

Aww Damn! RIP Jerry Fuchs

One of my favorite drummers passed away at 1:15am in Brooklyn this morning. He was in the band Maserati, and was a very talented single-foot-double-kick drummer. Maserati had made many new fans from their recent tour w/Mono (post rockers from japan). I made a lot of friends who had just switched to Maserati the night they played.

Before I left the show, my buddies from another band were talking to Jerry. I spoke to Jerry for about a minute before I left to nurse my poor head during Mono's set. That will be my last conversation with that soul.

Your drumming will be missed. Your spirit will be missed.

Updates of Old

Heya, smiley! So, I noticed that I snafu'd the reissue of my Chavez 2004 New York boot and put up V2 mp3s instead of V0--that's updated now!

2004 Reunion of Chavez, V0 mp3s

Yeah, now my xACT program is spitting out V2 mp3s when i told it to do V0 mp3s. Might have to update the program or the plugin for it.

Not sure if I released this already, but this time it's in V0 mp3s; the New Year's show reunion of Chavez in 2006. Great set and this show was old enough to be recorded on Minidisc. ENjoy!

2006 Reunion of Chavez, V0 mp3s

Ah, I finished eq'ing the Sunny Day Real Estate show from Tempe, but need the info on Venue and figure the name I should put on this recording before I release it. Plus the same guy sent 2 other shows that I need to work on. Hmm, maybe this weekend? We shall see...
