For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: Chris Blount Live at SandCave Session VII!

Chris is sorry he's late, but he didn't want to come.

Chris is sorry he’s late, but he didn’t want to come.

I recorded this back towards the end of August at the excellent SandCave Session VII in Seattle. Voila:

If you’d like to hear more Chris Blount, you can pick up his album I Win at Bandcamp. He also guested on the most recent Julia Massey and The Five Finger Discount album.

If you’d like to see more Chris Blount, he’ll be performing with the Gentlemen of Leisure… it looks like their next show is November 24th (the day after Thanksgiving) at the Skylark Café in West Seattle. I’ll likely post more about that show as it grows nearer.

Enjoy!

Hanging Out with Open Mike Eagle… and VIDEO DAAAAAAAAVE!!!!

This guy.

This guy.

Last night I went to see my pal Open Mike Eagle at Barboza in Seattle. I don’t know that I’d ever been to Barboza before. It’s a little bar underneath Neumos. Anyhoo, it was a great show. Mike killed it as always. Here’s the obligatory animated .GIF that I made of the performance:

The place was plenty packed. My pal Travis was even there! And after the show there was a line of like 50 people waiting to get to Mike’s merch table. I had to go on account of a long drive back down to Tacoma on a school night, but Mike was nice enough to give me big ol’ hugs and chat for a minute, and take a selfie:

These guys.

These guys.

I missed him on his last tour (when he became the mayor of Ferndale), so it was good to see him again! He’s a <wypipo voice>real class act and just a swell fellow.</wypipo voice>

But enough about Mike. Something amazing happened to me that got me super hyped. I got to meet none other than the one and only…

VIDEO DAVE!

Check it:

That ain't Photoshopped. That's really Video Dave!!!

That ain’t Photoshopped. That’s really Video Dave!!!

Look how excited I am in that photo to be meeting such a celebrity! You might even say I’m “giddy.” It was so cool to meet him after admiring his work. Scroll back up and look at the animated .GIF of Mike, and look at the projections splashed across him and the background. That’s all Video Dave! Didn’t he do an amazing job!? I think Mike & Prolific & Sammus were way too hard on him before last night:

AAAAAA I’M STILL HYPE ABOUT MEETING HIM!

VIDEO DAAAAAAAAAAAAAVE!!!!!

Oh, Hey, Come See Warren Dunes in Ballard Tonight

Yup, they'll be there.

Yup, they’ll be there. SO CAN YOU!

Oh, hey, yeah, sorry I haven’t been doing much bliggity-blog-blogging lately. I have a three-year-old. Keeps me kinda busy. Also I own a Nintendo Switch. Y’know. So I kinda missed a few things in the last couple of weeks, like how there were two Fools Play Improvs last weekend.

But I did wanna jump on here real quick to say that my wife and I will be heading up to Seattle tonight to see Julia, Jared, Dom, and Matt as Warren Dunes plays Conor Byrne Pub! You shouldst join us all up in there!

Oh, also, I guess this is going to be Matt’s last show as the bass player (for quite a while at the very least), because he suddenly got a job on a cruise that’s gonna last at least six months! Surprise!

Help Open Mike Eagle Out and Buy a Damned Ticket, Wouldya?

The man is a professional, after all.

The man is a professional, after all.

Hey, listen: Open Mike Eagle could use your help. See, he’s trying to put on a independent tour to promote his upcoming album, Brick Body Kids Still Daydream (which comes on on Friday—pre-order it RIGHT FRIKKIN’ NOW). It’s… not going so well. Just watch this premiere episode of his new reality show, “Dead Ass:”

But it’s easy to help him out! He’s coming to Seattle in early October, so all y’all gotta do is buy a damned ticket (and as an added “bonus” you’ll see me at the show, ’cause I’m going too).

Open Mike Eagle with Billy Woods (Faced Book event)
Thursday, October 5 at 8 PM
@ Barboza
