TBT to that time we did an open mic and I played maracas badly

The first vid here was around the first time we were able to jam in place where the neighbors weren’t ready to kill us (seriously, those were some hard ass times).

We opened the concert for California-based edge rock band Eyeshine, which if you haven’t heard their latest album “Sidewalk Dreams and Chalk Dust” go check that out. It’s a great piece of work. Also cool to note that the band is fronted by Johnny Yong Bosch the well-known voice actor of the anime and vidja game world, and, if somehow you don’t know, the mutha fuckin’ mighty morphin’ black ranger! So yeah, cool tidbit there. The concert was hosted by the wonderful people behind … Continue reading On Volume Dynamics at a Semi Big Venue
