November was an amazing month. Here is a picture recap of our shows backing up the GZA of Wu-Tang Clan, playing at Gasa Gasa in NOLA, Bear Creek music festival, signing CDs, our saxophonist Josh making a guest appearance with Karl Denson and our rhythm section’s appearance backing up Daniel Johnston at FFFfest.
Our next show is in Tyler, TX at Stanley’s on December 20th. Check the info here:
Here’s a movie I made of the time lapse highlights from a 20 hr drive home from Tampa, FL to Austin, TX. As usual the cause of this long drive was the return home from tour. This time I was out with my band Brownout playing at the Bear Creek Music Festival and several other Gulf Coast clubs. The video features some music I wrote for Brownout’s most recent album “Oozy”.
Enjoy the product of delirium! All of this footage was shot on my iphone 4 and edited in the phone using the Vidify app.
Big thanks to everybody that saw us in tour this month. Bear Creek was a blast as were all the shows in NOLA, Hattiesburg, and Dunedin. We can’t wait to go back!
Our next show is Dec 20th at Stanley’s in Tyler TX.
In the meanwhile, enjoy this time lapse video our bass player made of the 20 hr drive back from Florida.
