Looking forward to next year!
Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving. See you on Saturday at the Meridian of Santomojo
if you're in Houston!
So, the winter is upon us, and we're hunkering down to work more exclusively on our new record. That means that we don't have a lot of shows coming up this year. :(
But there are 2 more big ones for those of you in Houston: Santomojo
(11/25) and Cezanne
is a huge festival with tons of ridiculous bands. It's the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and if you are a music fan in any way shape or form, you should come to this. We go on at 3:45pm, and there's music till 3am.Cezanne
is our old stomping ground, and the location where we recorded our latest CD (titled, efficiently, Cezanne
). We'll be playing 3 sets starting at 9pm.
Hope to see you there!
A fan in Italy, Tommaso, wrote this poem to go along with our song Wreck Of The Zephyr.
Dancing on the Zephyr
E’ veramente bello pensare a te come primavera che torna leggera e rapida in un sorriso di una giovane che aspetta la felicità e la verità giovane che si diverte in compagnia di chi ama perché cerca amore giovane che vuole crescere per fuggire da quel presente senza pace realtà buia e povera di Spirito lo sapevi? anime bimbe smarrite nel cielo azzurro non lo sapevamo è veramente bello pensare a te perché so che lo Spirito di verità ci sostiene e la vita che non vedevamo ci accudisce ora come allora madre amorevole che attende risposta dai suoi piccoli e è come se ancora tu ci fossi perché nella tua tu sei nella vita allora corri in questa primavera della memoria e delle anime balla e ridi piena di cuore ora.
E poi sempre.
Quando saremo lontano da questo tempo.
Bonus points to the best English translation!
We had a fun time on Saturday night playing at the Concert Pub
with the Morrison Resurrection Experiment
. Our set was great (and well received), and "The Doors" put on one hell of a show. Here's Richard Zemcik on the keys (and Rhodes key bass!):
And here's Hank Schyma on the ... well, on the floor:
Way to give it your all, guys.
We're in Bryan tonight at Revolution
. Our buddy Topaz
will be playing sax with us.
It gets out of control in Bryan when we play Revolution. Here's a pic of the band (at Revolution in January '06) just before Ian laid a smack down on my ass for making fun of his ponytail. I've hated him ever since.
But look at it!!! What a dork. We'll probably fight tonight.
We had a blast last friday playing in Denton, TX, with our friends Sol Kitchen
. They kicked a lot of ass.
When Gaah(n) introduced us, he said "Drop Trio is up next, and they're gonna melt your lunch." Rad.
Gaah(n) came up and sat in with us
for a couple tunes, too:
Great night - thanks for having us out, guys.
