YesYes! It’s Animated Electric NoNo!

Here's a photograph of a photographer photographing.

Here’s a photograph of a photographer photographing.

Last Friday Night my wife an I ventured (with several members of Gentlemen of Leisure) up to the Great White North of Ballard (the Sunset Tavern to be specific) to watch a rocks-and-or-rolls show featuring our friends to Cortese Brothers, who make up the band Electric NoNo.

Normally Electric NoNo consists solely of Jared Cortese on Guitar/Vocals and Dom Cortese on Drums/Backing Vocals/Every-Once-In-A-While-Keyboard. But this time they were sporadically joined by a whole bevy of additional musicians: a saxomophonist, an additional guitarist, and none other than Julia Massey on Keyboard/Backing Vocals!

As is my nature, I made some animated .gifs of the performance:

O Winged Jared!

It's Skeletom Dom!

Julia + Jared Sharing the Stage!?

The show was a record release for Electric NoNo’s new EP, Rain City Blue. GET IT GET IT GET IT!

The only thing wrong with this album is that it’s an EP, and I wants me an LP! Hop to it, Bros!

Also, expect some exciting announcements soon from Gentlemen of Leisure, as well as a joint Julia/NoNo venture called “Warren Dunes.” Stay tuned, dear reader…

New Official Music Video for Electric NoNo’s “Blue Planet”

YesYes

YesYes!

Electric NoNo is releasing a new EP next Friday to be entitled Rain City Blue, but today they released the first official music video from that album, for the 1-minute punk-pop gem of a song called “Blue Planet.” STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND WATCH IT HERE:

Wow. Even though it’s only a minute long, director Jeff Larson and the Cortese brothers sure did pack a tonne of awesome in there. They apparently spent nearly a year animating the video!

Jesus Rehabs on a School Night

The Jesus Rehab has a show Tuesday night!

The Jesus Rehab has a show Tuesday night!

Why must my favorite musics happen live on weekday nights? There are two problems when they do this:

  1. I am old.
  2. I am a parent.

Therefore it takes some pretty special circumstances to get me to go out to a musics show in the middle of the week. Like the musics show that The Jesus Rehab is playing tomorrow (Tuesday) at The Sunset Tavern in Seattle.

Nowadays to get me to go out to musics on a school night, it has to be a musics that I won’t have good opportunity to see otherwise. Like my out-of-town favorite musics who only blow through the area once or twice a year. As much as I love The Jesus Rehab musics shows, I know that I’ll have opportunity to see them again fairly soon, so I don’t feel as much necessity to stay out on a school night.

But that’s just me. And me is not you. That means that YOU should prolly go see this show, ’cause it promises to be muchly about the kicking of ass!

Details:
Hello Tuesday Night Rock!! – The Jesus Rehab, We Are Traitors, and Yukon Gold (Facebook event)
Tuesday, July 1st at 8:00 PM

$6, 21+

And who knows? Perhaps I will be feeling young and spry tomorrow evening and you just might see me there. Who is to be knowing? Are you to be knowing? I am not to be knowing. The only way to know is if you go to the Sunset Tavern and look for me!

I Don’t Know Who Amy Bockelman Is, but I’ll Be There Anyway!

Bockelfest #4! Rawr!

Bockelfest #4! Rawr!

Apparently there is a woman named Amy Bockelman. I only know three things about her:

  1. She’s from Germany.
  2. She has fantastic taste in musics
  3. She is friends with many fantastic musicians

She also apparently has her own mini music fest: Bockelfest. I gather from inference that it is really just a fancy birthday party, but nonetheless she manages to gather some awexome bands in an awexome venue and have a rockin’ (and public-invited) good time.

This year (Bockelfest 4) the shindig is at the lovely Sunset Tavern in lovely Ballard, and includes these lovely musics:

The Five Finger Discount on one foot each!

Since two of these bands are two of our very-favorite bands in existence right now (and I gather that the other one is some sort of ad hoc band created just for this event), you’d best believe that Carrie & I will be there! Perhaps we will even meet and befriend this Amy Bockelman person. SO CAN YOU!
