round two (recording and vegas)

well ... it's was round two of recording last saturday. at the ass crack of dawn (9am) we loaded up, set up, rocked up, filled up (on some delicious mex-food at Lolitas), and wrapped up recording around 7pm. 5 more instrument takes done. we laid down the basic tracks (guitar/bass/drums) for ..... "why did it take so long?", "full moon", "not everybody", "it's up to me" and a beefed up version of "warm up (or say goodbye)" ... since all these instruments are being done live in the same room, the feel has just been amazing. it feels less like a recording session and more just a live performance set to (digital) tape.

with the remaining minutes we ran through some of the songs for our next round of recording (slated for sometime at the end of august) and then launched into some of our favorite covers (femme fatale, something to look forward to, being with you, too much monkey business ...... we even did a quick jam of Sweet Jane ... which probably will never see the light of day). then headed over to Scolari's to catch The Frantic Romantic blow our minds, and Secret Apollo continue to rock the house. a great saturday indeed.

sadly, i'm now in erie, PA and will be missing out on much of the weeks great music (the 88 at the casbah, red walls at casbah, um .... probably whoever else is playing the casbah) but i'll be back 11am friday morning, just in time for a run through before our set at the che. poor bailey had to cancel due to some unfortunate circumstances, but our friends Sinfonia Antartica graciously have joined the bill. in addition, it'll be round two in vegas. no word yet on who will accompany us at the beauty bar, but we're playing with Dios Malos. does it really matter?
