And here's the reason why nothing has been getting done on the website as of late... heh heh heh It's a program called Adobe Audition and it is seriously amazeballz! It's my latest obsession and it's eating away all my time as of late. I've been taking some band practice MP3's and mixing my mind out on them 24/7. Some come out better than others, but that's only when Bob actually listens to me and doesn't try to get arty and "experiment with the sound". Mic placement is everything. And home recording is killing the music business... or something like that.
Speaking of home recordings, there's a benefit compilation that has been put together from every bands performance who participated at the Cash For Clay benefit that went down a few weeks ago. The Cash For Clay donation page is still open, so if you haven't already, please give what you can now. Or, if you're one of those schnooks who need instant gratification for your monetary contribution, you can always click here and get this compilation I'm blabbering on about. It's called, again, Cash For Clay, and it features live performances from the Seriouslys, Fredward, Fuzz SoLow, Shark Pants, Fun In The Dark, Stormtroopers Of Dirk and the reunion of 1/2 Ast and Civic Minded Five. It was a great night of Music and all the proceeds from this compilation are going towards helping a great guy in his ongoing medical battle. So again, click here to download the Cash For Clay compilation and check out some of the better bands gigging around Las Vegas these days.
There's lots going on this weekend. There's the Crazy Chief gig @ Vamp'd on Fri., which I'm staying away from for obvious non-band related Drama associated with that place. They're playing with an Alice In Chains cover band, so if that's your thing, be there I guess? That H.R. gig is going down @ the LVCS on Fri. too, but that shit's just lame, no matter who's playing with H.R., and it's especially lame considering the Local bands chosen to open. Sat. is the big By Death's Design reunion gig @ Backstage Bar & Billiards downtown, but I was never a fan, so that's not a draw for me, but TheCore and Battle Born are opening, so I'm definitely gonna be there. I haven't seen both of those bands in a while, and I'm long overdue. Sun. is the Die! Die! Die! gig @ the Beauty Bar with Fredward opening, and if I'm feeling frooty I may just check that out, I dunno yet. Hell, I might just stay in all weekend and mix and remix stuff until my fingers go numb. That's the beauty of having no obligations. You can pretty much do whatever the fuck you want to, and that's just fine by me...
