lovely otherworldly ones,
What a whirlwind! The days have gone by so much faster
than we could have dreamed and now there are only 16 days until Brief Awakening
moves to SC. Luckily there are two more opportunities for you to come party
with us, sing with us, drink, and dance with us.
On Saturday Dec. 8th Kara
and I will be sharing the art that we have created over the past five years together
and playing some brief Awakening tunes too at The Meeting Point in JP from 3:00-6:00.
Also playing will be the magnificent Natali Freed who creates deep and evocative,
acoustic harmonious tunes. This event is completely free and there will be
food and drinks too.
We will be playing our final show in New England
Tuesday Dec. 18th at 9:45PM. That show will also feature the exciting sounds
of Alternative Riot, Amber Ladd, and more. As a special gift from the
heart for you, we will be giving out a four song EP of never before recorded
Brief Awakening songs; Give, Silent Audience, Beloved Lie, and Lizzie. This
show may be your only opportunity to get this limited release EP. We are spending
every free moment working on it in Leva Boy Studios using pristine
70's gear. Recording on tape, let me tell you, is hard and beautiful work.
It really captures that crisp authentic sound but you have to do PERFECT takes....
My goodness. I think this will be our best sounding recording yet
express how much our New England friends mean to us and how much we love you.
At our last show, I fear I shall cry. Brief Awakening started in
2008 as many bands do, at a house party. Since then we have played over 100
shows all over boston, the North Shore, NH, and Providence. We have played
festivals, venues, more house parties, and radio shows and recorded a full length
album. None of it would mean a thing with out your smiling faces in the crowd
and your shining ears really hearing us. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
You are a part of it all. When we are making music in the South you will still
be a part of it, and when we come back here to tour in the future you will still
be what makes it possible. I cant wait to see you again.
