It was a long process, but I have finally found a bass player and a drummer and rehearsed with them to the point where we're nearly show-ready. The songs will be the same, but we will be playing them under a new name: Soft Deadlines. We'd appreciate it a lot if you'd become a Soft Deadlines fan both here and on Facebook. Thanks for the support both past and future!
VLF, aka Oliver Lemke, aka moi, has never played a show under this name before. That's going to change on December 21st, at Rocky Point Cantina in Tempe. If you're interested in watching me crash through Today is the Day and other savage pop numbers, perhaps not with great finesse or perfect pitch, but with undeniable energy and sexiness, you should totally come. Tickets are $8 when you buy online, $13 at the door, so the thrifty should buy online.
Another point on thrift: I'm offering a FREE DOWNLOAD to the first ten people who buy tickets, and it don't get much cheaper than that. Mind you, I'll need an email address to send you the download code, but rest assured that the address won't be used for anything you don't approve of. I'm simply too lazy to send more than a handful of emails per year, and as for sharing your personal information with anyone else, I would never.
Hope to see you on the 21st!
Isn't this devilishly exciting? VLF, a musical alias I concocted a few years ago, is now a real thing -- at least, if web presence equals reality. Which it really doesn't... Fear and distrust of technology will probably be a noticeable thread in the music you hear on this page, as will fear and distrust of human beings, governments, corporations, animals, and trees. The newborn computer blinks its single eye, and words appear on the screen: "hello world." It has been programmed to say this. It doesn't even know that there is a world. But hopefully it will bring some use, enjoyment or consolation to someone somewhere in that world. That is the hope.
