Bow And Sparrow Show 03/27/09

This was a truly fun show with Megawand, VOICEsVOICEs and Luna Is Honey who set up the show. We had so much fun with everyone that came to the show at Bow and Sparrow. Bow and Sparrow is a really cool/gallery that specializes in bike-related stuff. They do customs designs and art for bikes too. They used to operate around Chinatown but have just relocated at the heart of downtown. You can now check em out at their new spot at 838 S. Spring St.

Tonite is going to be a fun show. We will be playing our own version of Dead End's "Johnny Loves Hardcore". The best part is that we will be playing with all these amazing bands that we are excited to see live. We go on first at 10ish PM. then VOICEsVOICEs, then Luna Is Honey, the Megawand. JBTS will be playing records in between bands. Anyways, you should come check out the show if you have no plans, i think this is the first party they are having since they relocated from their old spot. Its gonna be FUN!

PASSIONISTA (Brenmar Dance Edit) Yay!


Brenmar made a really awesome dance remix of our song "Passionista". It sounds really tripped out and we are so happy about it. We also got to meet him when his band, These Are Powers came to town to play at The Echo last last Sunday. He is a rather humble guy and seems pretty coola nd laid back. Their set was pretty electric It kinda started a bit weird due to some technical shortcomings and i guess thats a good issue to always consider when you are playing electronic music instruments. There were also incessant bickering and heckling from the back of the bar but they dealt with it in a rather humorous way, there was a moment though when I thought their singer was pissed but she got out of it to kick off one of their best songs in their set. I would say they managed to win the crowd later on as i could see everyone was dancing and Andrew our roommate was totally "in the zone" -caught in the electronic trance. We also got Brenmar's dance mixtape which came in a nice silver package. Anyhow, here is the remix of the song. Dance away, kids!

Yum Yum Music

We are settling into our new house and practiced for the first time - for the first time we have a ROOM for PRACTICING! It's difficult to find an affordable living situation with ample space in L.A (as i'm sure you know) so we are happy with our home. Our good friend and new roommate brought his compost bin with him and we are excited to be focusing on a lifestyle of reusing things and making the most of what is around us.

This is a video of The Vegetable Orchestra. They have made some pretty Magickal instruments and this video shows you their process and some of their music. Now, make a flute out of your sandwich today, dammit! ;-)

The Smell with The Littlest Viking, Yes, Deer and Bastidas!

We had so much fun at this show and we were so happy that the new set-up sounded so good. The other bands were so amazing and it was truly a memorable night...Don has a recording of the show and he says it sounds great. We owe much of it to Jordan who was doing the sound. We also met Frank of Effigy who was making a movie and has decided to include us and Bastidas in it. I'm not really sure about the story but it should be interesting. Anyways, we got a copy of the Littlest Viking's new record which sounds so fucking badass and Yes, Dear whom we traded CD's and zines with. We also have a live video of "Yerba Mate Dub" which we posted on our myspace page.

MAGICK @ THE SMELL TOMORROW NIGHT!



Its gonna be a fun show. We will have Spooky Snow CD's available, some zines, maybe some buttons too...This is the first time that we will be playing with our new set-up, so we are excited and hopeful that as always, we can make the most fun out from it. Also we will be playing new songs Magick Magick, Vegan Vampire, South Central Dub and a Dub version of Seasick. Bastidas will rock the hell out of you and so will the grand powers of The Littlest Viking, who is releasing their CD on this show and Yes, Deer (with Cory and Diego who used to be in 1000 Peacocks and Exploding Dresses).

We also just recently moved to West Adams in this beautiful and spacious house with our roommates, Ryan and Andrew. We are excited about the new living conditions because , we can now set-up for our next recordings and we have lots of space to do art and crafts. And yes it is near USC. Go Trojans!
