The Get Down
Our show at the Get Down was certainly an interesting one. When you discover right away that your lead instrument is broken (and discover it onstage no less!) sometimes, you just have to improvise using other means. Like your arms and your legs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khbTW0KTGmc&feature=relmfu
Debut, contest and more
Tuesday, May 8 at the One Stop is a big deal for this band, and it's a big deal for a couple of reasons. The first one is that this is our first show with our new guitar player, Lauren Landes. The second is that this show marks one year, almost to the day, that MadMax and Ryan have been in Asheville. It's been a long time coming.
We have decided to make a bunch of fliers and get them out there. Several of them are hand painted, but only four of them have the "golden ticket" message on the back. Find one of these posters in Asheville, bring it to the show, and you'll get a prize beyond your wildest dreams. Well, maybe I shouldn't set the bar that high. You'll get a prize that will probably not exactly match your expectations. Take that as you will!
ooooh they love it when I get all mysterious.
The best way to maximize your chances of finding one of these soon-to-be-worth-MILLIONS fliers is to find us on the facebooks. Follow us there. You'll see pictures of the "special" fliers and all sorts of crazy stuff you'll want to immediately erase from your memory, Men In Black style. And you might even learn something. That's what it's all about, right?
Put your left foot in, now put your left foot out. I just made you dance, and I didn't even pay you for it. Sucker.
Spring's springing and stuff
Hi, Poet Radio fans! Let me catch you up on what's been happening for us as of late. In the past year, the drummer and singer have moved 4 times. We are now renting a band house located right behind a business that burns either bread or kitten cadavers. Whichever it is, I'd like to make a sandwich out of it. Our neighbors are in a death metal band, and their roommate who is not in the band is deaf. Seriously. What luck that guy has! We've had such luck as well. We have found a fourth member who plays guitar like a guitar player should play guitar. Which is, to say, all wheeeeerey wheeeee and beeeedly deee. And (one mustn't forget) ber der ner ner ber der ner ner NEE NEE! So now that singer we were talking about earlier? She can get back to doing what she does best: eating cat carcass. And singing. Well, folks, I don't want to bore you all with the specifics of roasting and grilling techniques. However, now that this blog has been started, feel free to stop on by any time you feel like having your consciousness crapped in. :) Have a nice day.
