Sunday, August 27, 2006 - Mixedup
As you might know, we are big believers in sharing the fruits of our artistic labors with other musicians so they can create derivative works. That's why we release a lot of our music through the Creative Commons Non-Commercial Share-Alike Attribution license. That lets other people use our music to create new songs, etc. (Naturally, it's only free if they don't use it commercially ... if they're going to make money on it, we want to negotiate a little cut for the gas fund ... :)

Recently we found a bunch of cool remixes on the site, which hosts lots of great Creative Commons music for just such a purpose. Through Magnatune, we provided the source tracks from one track on our first studio album, Lefty's Alone, and there have been a bunch great remixes that people have used our music in.

Thanks to LeFou for the tip.

Monday, August 14, 2006 - Ian Captured
On video, that is. On Saturday, Ian dropped in to The Plex (the recording studio run by Ant Boogie from Collective Hallucination) to lay some B3 down on a couple of their new tunes. Ant just posted 3 short videos of the session on their MySpace page. Check it out.

Sunday, August 13, 2006 - ATX Podcast
ATX Fest (an Austin festival we played in April) just released their podcasts of this year's show. You can download and listen to every set from the entire festival (including Drop Trio), free of charge. Pretty rad! Get it here.


Saturday, August 12, 2006 - Send Off
Our show last night at Helios was a blast. We sent GPF off to his new digs in Ft. Worth with aplomb.

Thanks to Groovehouse for the photos, and to all our peeps for coming out and making it a good time. We'll post some audio soon. Soon-ish, anyway.

Thanks also to the Alan Isaac quintet for rounding out the evening with some energetic standards.

Tuesday, August 08, 2006 - Bye Bye Patrick
Join us this Friday for our "Patrick Get Out Of Jail" party. As some of you know P is moving to Ft. Worth*. To celebrate we're going to have a few cocktails and play Spaceship Jazz. You're all invited!!!

Here are the details:
Friday, August 11
Helios (411 Westheimer, Houston)

Stick around after our set for The Alan Isaac Quintet.

*Patrick's leaving Houston, not the band.

Friday, August 04, 2006 - Thanks!
We'd like to thank everyone who voted in this year's Houston Press Music Awards. Drop Trio was named "Best Jazz". Big ups to our friends and fans - thank you!

Thursday, August 03, 2006 - MilkPop
Hey, check it out - Drop Trio was just featured in the new edition of MilkPop online magazine.

Wednesday, August 02, 2006 - Le Hot Club
Tonight I'm playing with a Gypsy jazz group called Le Hot Club at the Continental Club. We hit the stage at 10 and play until our limbs fall off...or until the place closes. See ya there.

Tuesday, August 01, 2006 - Houston Press Awards Showcase
Big ups to everybody who came out to watch us play at the Houston Press Music Awards. We played to a packed room at the M Bar, and really had a blast. We also got to see a ton of great music by the many excellent bands who were nominated. Ian even snapped a few pics.

Our next Houston show is August 11th at Helios (10pm - midnight). It's the Patrick-get-out-of-jail show, and should be wicked. Hope to see you there.

Spaceship jazz from Texas.
