Tuesday, November 30, 2004 - SB on KPFT
Our good friends the Southern Backtones will be on 90.1 KPFT this afternoon at 3pm. They'll be playing songs from their latest release live in the studio. John Griffin plays rhythm guitar for the Backtones. John is also a rad studio engineer who we had the pleasure of working with on "Big Dipper" and "Leap." We'll give a quarter to the first person who can answer this correctly: Who's the guy on the right?

Friday, November 26, 2004 - Tongith at Funk Jazz Fridays
Tonight, Ian joins the Free Radicals for some post Thanksgiving improv at funk jazz fridays. Come and drink some wine, to work off all those calories you ate yesterday. At last count, there's gonna be turntables, sax, trumpet, drums, keys ... and we'll see what else ...

Thursday, November 25, 2004 - Happy Thanksgiving!
Hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving. We're thankful for having friends and fans like you!

So, last night's Electronic Improv Games show was pretty cool. Ian participated, along with about a dozen other electronic musicians (including his fellow KTRU DJs Chuck Roast and Maria Chavez). Here's a short excerpt from one of the performances:

- Segment 1 (Excerpt) - 3:14, 3.8 MB

This clip is from the first segment, while Ian was playing (that's him on the pulsing sound, which is coming from the Prophet 600). Other musicians heard here are Maria Chavez (on scratchy jumpy turntables), Pizo Meyer from Phoenelai (on soft drones), and Kevin Novak of T.E.F. (on thunderous sounding stuff). Towards the end of this clip, the game shifted it to be Kevin's turn, and halfway through, something briefly killed his power and reset all of his equipment. Kind of a bummer, except that it sounded really cool. :) Anyway, if you like stuff like this, there's probably a lot more of it in Houston than you realize ...

Saturday, November 20, 2004 - Bleeps & Blips
Last night was a super cool show at Brasil. We played loud and long, and had a great crowd. We even had a surprise guest sit-in by LRJ, doin' his tune "The Ole Hood" (aka "Slapjack"). Hooray for Brasil.

Tonight (Saturday, Nov 20), if you happen to be around, come by the Barnevelder Movement Arts Complex and you can hear Ian participating in a performance called Electronic Improv Games - it'll be a bunch of local electronic musicians participating in unrehearsed, improvised "games". Should be interesting!

Friday, November 19, 2004 - Tonight at Brasil
You know the drill - tonight, Brasil, 10pm - 1am. Free stickers to the first 50 people who tell us we totally don't need a singer at all.

Oh, and there's a new track in the DT Live Archive today - "Shelby Gets A Haircut". And we'll give a free CD to the first person who knows where we came up with that name (just the "Shelby" part).

Saturday, November 13, 2004 - Hooray for the Meridian
We had a total blast last night at the Meridian. It was nice to play a slightly bigger club show, where you have things like, say, a sound check, and a dressing room. Will wonders never cease? Anyway, we played a rock out set (distortion knob on 10, thank you very much) and then settled in to see Mofro rock the house. They're great guys (Ian especially enjoyed meeting their organ / bass player Adam Scone, also of the Sugarman Three). All around good show. Thanks to Pace for having us!

(Sorry this entry was posted late - got saved as a draft but never published!)

Friday, November 12, 2004 - Tonight At The Meridian!
Tonight is our first time playing at the Meridian, 1503 Chartres. The show's being put on by PACE Concerts, and we're really excited about opening for Mofro. And believe me, we will indeed rock out. Please come and show PACE that we can draw a crowd, and maybe they'll have us back for more!

BTW - new file in the DT Live Archive today - a special 17 minute epic version of Melody-Melody from Beaumont, TX. Go check it out!

Wednesday, November 10, 2004 - Pop The Hood
Today marks the release of the 2nd hip hop collaboration for Drop Trio - Houston rapper LRJ is releasing his new album The Hang Over, with a track called "The Ole Hood" that features Drop Trio's tune "Slapjack" (from Big Dipper) as the backing track. From LRJ's record label, Cinque:
It's here! The new LRJ-The Hang Over album. 17 hot tracks with many special guest features that include: E-Rock(5th Ward Boyz), Ace Deuce, Drop Trio, The Top Grindin' Family, The Southern Gladiators, and more! Go pick up your copy today!
You can listen to a sound clip online ... and if you want to hear the whole thing, tune in tonight at midnight to Damage Control Radio on KPFT 90.1 and request the tune.

Sunday, November 07, 2004 - Today at Borders
If you haven't had a chance to pick up Leap yet, and you're in the Montrose area today, come by the Borders Books & Music at Kirby & West Alabama - Drop Trio will be playing a live in-store performance from 4-6pm. Hope to see you there!

Friday, November 05, 2004 - Plump Tonight
Swing yoself over to Brasil this evening for the every-friday ritual: Funk Jazz Fridays. Tonight, you've got the majestic PLUMP, Houston's finest funk jammin', round-the-world playin', bra catchin', blazer wearin' band. Seriously, these guys are bad ass, so come by and witness it.

Thursday, November 04, 2004 - Drop Live Archive
We're introducing a new feature on our web site today - the Drop Trio Live Archive! It's a single source for all of our publicly available live recordings, both single tracks and entire shows. You can get to it from the Music page, or by linking to it directly. We'll be adding a new track on there every week from now on. This week's recording is from our 10/30 show at Continental Club with the Southern Backtones:
- The Big S.O. (mp3)
Let us know what you think of it - ideas and suggestions are always welcome.

Tuesday, November 02, 2004 - The Big Day
Don't forget to vote. We did, but our band policy is to remain nonpartisan so there are no endorsenments here. Whatever your choice, it matters now more than ever.

Spaceship jazz from Texas.
