Somehow, I cant remember really, I came across an email that said WSRP and I, uncharacteristically, clicked on the link.

Interesting, I thought. Maybe I should go check out whats going on here. Its a two night Rock Party at the Skylark in West Seattle, featuring Seattle bands. Seattle rock bands.

Scrolling down the band names I saw, near the bottom, Skunk Rider, a band that’s coming in to Soundhouse soon, to record. Below that was Lark Vs Owl – I’ve recorded them a few times and we’re working on their new stuff now (So far everything’s going to tape).

Skunk Rider opened Friday night with a wall of fuzzy rawness: yep, this’ll be fun to put to tape! (Yes, tape.) Then Crawler set up. Another band that’s been through Soundhouse with Jack Endino – and those guys were awesome. All in all, Friday night was a hard hitting night of serious Rock!

Saturday night was really good too, but not quite as hard/edgy. There’s good rock in Seattle! Everyone was excited about Mind Vice, but my favorite of the night was Lark Vs Owl. They just have good songs, good presence and a good show. Luv ’em. They’ll Luv ya back.

I want to put a special THANKS out to TBASA for putting this show on and supporting Seattle’s rock music.

That’s all for now….

Something is happening here in our little corner of the universe. Something, yes. You may know about is already, but you haven’t heard it … yet.

Playing with Strangers is an idea, a workshop, an experiment that takes place at Soundhouse.

It’s an ongoing and ever-changing landscape created by it’s inhabitants. Inhabitants that happen to be musicians (and maybe other type of artists as we move forward) that don’t know each other [are meeting for the first time]. They are brought together for the purpose of creating or altering the landscape.

Every month or so, a new group of artists convene at Soundhouse for a short time to write, record and perform about an EP – all in roughly a day. They end up with studio versions created during the day and “live” versions performed that evening in front of an intimate audience of friends and fans.
The recording will be produced and available as a digital EP – one for each session.

 

Well, now. You have been introduced. If you’ve been experienced …. or not …. you may have until tomorrow to download, for the sum of $0, Session No. 2.

Session No. 2 is in the vein of well, blues rock. But hard hitting, down & dirty. 70’s vibe.

Thank you and good night.

More and more, cool bands are coming in and rocking out. Are we having a resurgence of, dare I say, Good old 70’s R&R?
Custom recorded and mixed their upcoming album a little bit ago…

Yeah – its a good life!
