Party on! SHOW This Friday night at Play by Play cafe in Cincinnati - LOTS OF NEW SONGS
So this weekend is a brief hiatus for the band because the big one and the little one both went home to New York for various reasons until Monday. Nick and I watched Princess Mononoke last night, and it was pretty much the bomb diggz. I've also been doing some housekeeping shiz - cleaning out my car, doing laundry, shining some shoes, stripping some wallpaper, responding to messages on myspace, and finding this sweetass Wayne's World Bohemian Rhapsody gif to put up here. I just bought Waynes World 1 & 2 for 6 bucks last night and I'm pretty pumped about it. Czar Nicholas II had never seen either Wayne's World movie OR ANY OF THE BACK TO THE FUTURE MOVIES until last week when we edumucated him.
When Adrian booked his flight to NYC last week, he had to pick the worst time in the world: his flight was at 6:45 AM out of COLUMBUS. Seeing as we are 2 hours from columbus, that means that Nick and I had to leave around 3 AM to get him to his flight. It ended up being pretty sweet though, because after our search for the perfect movie to keep us awake from midnight til 2 or 3, we somehow (tragically) ended up with the movie Lost In Space, which Nick and I both remembered being kind of cool from when we were kids/teenagers. Nope. It pretty much was a horrible movie from start to finish. Even Gary Oldman couldn't save that flick. Nor could Joey from Friends.
On the way to the airport in the middle of the night we listened to a burned cd with 11 new demos we recorded (including Anna Sun and Set the TV On Fire, which are both up on myspace right now) and we are starting to have our vision for the album come together. We're picking from about 16 songs for the new album and our pool of 16 is pretty freakin awesome.
Stone Cold Fox, Angeline, and Jenny's Got a... are all in the running, although the versions of the songs will be very different, and to many people's apparent dismay, the strings most likely will not be returning in SCF or Angie. Our goal is to not need them, and to make our versions every bit as exciting with just our instruments and 4 vocals. I don't think you guys will be disappointed.
Wayne's World happens to be on VH1 right now and it's pretty awesome.
We're playing at the Play by Play Cafe this friday night around 9 PM and I think its 5 bucks at the door. You guys should come, we've made a lot of progress in the past few weeks and it's going to be a hellova show.
