decent takes & silver lakes

so matt and i took a listen last night to the first round of songs. The instrument tracks sound pretty darn good so I think we're well on our way. next round of recording set for 8/4.

also, we just set up another show at the silverlake lounge in Los angeles Aug. 21st. We'll be playing with a new band, Hot TV, featuring Mark Bertuldo (the guy who did the orchestral parts on "for goodness' sake" on our last album). It's his new band, and it'll be their first show, should be awesome. more bands TBA.

and in case you hadn't noticed, despite our recording this whole month, it hasn't detered us from booking the crap out of every venue and band we can get our hands on. the breakdown of shows (thus far):

7/27 - Whistlestop w/ old man hands and red feathers
8/2 - Ken Club w/ the boyish charms, slings and the bears
8/10 - Che Cafe w/ roman spring, the airlines and poor bailey
8/11 - Beauty Bar (Las Vegas) w/ dios malos and poor bailey
8/14 - Casbah w/ echo revolution and fuusa
8/21 - Silverlake Lounge w/ hot tv and ....
8/23 - Cal State San Marcos (11:30 lunchtime show)
8/25 - Lestat's w/ the joanie-men

the first night

the boys and i are back in the studio, breaking ground on the next album. we laid down instrument tracks for ... eh, roughly 5 songs. we also did one take of another, but i think it's gonna see the cutting room floor (or more specifically the digital recycle bin). But much head way was made. Our friend deborah's hooking us up with some time at the studio she works at. the studio we were at til just past 2am last night. but yes, it has begun.

the first songs out of the gate: you said, we're not quite through, with friends like these, she won't miss me, full moon. tonight we'll listen to the initial cuts, see if there's anything worth salvaging.
