back from the dead

26 Dec

hey guys, it’s been a pretty hectic month and a half since I posted. I failed finals, went to chicago, went to a bunch of shows, got a shit ton of new music, pissed off a ton of people, and took a crap load of pictures! haha. I recently started shooting film at shows to very good results, so look forward to that in the future. Here is just one of many film shots I’ve taken so far:

Also, I’ve recently started booking shows–exciting, isn’t it? I have two shows in the works for 2009, so check back to hear about that. I figured that using my freelance money for music-related events would only be win-win, since I handle the promotions aspect of booking as well. If you’re an out of town band looking for shows, get in touch with me and I might be able to hook you up.

What else is going on? I have two new Lymbyc Systym reviews in the works, and one Mason Proper show review/album review as well. Those should be up by the end of this month. The Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s show on the 12th went really well. They were wonderful live, and played plenty of songs off their first album as well. You can check out photos from that on my flickr, or on the description for the event.

    Thanks for the Witch Hats track! “Hopeless” is my favorite Wrens song.
