Have you streamed our newest music video for Animal yet? If not, take a minute to check out the video above and share it with a few friends! The track’s audio was engineered and produced by Craig Schumacher, a Tucson local, and tonight we’ll be holding a release party at the Hotel Congress (in Tucson) to honor this wonderful video’s release in the flesh!
Local Tucson bands Two Door Hatchback and Sweet Ghosts will kick off the show at 9pm and 10pm respectively, and then we’ll close out the night with a big one starting at 11pm. Show is free to all. Come get down and celebrate this wildness!
Salutations, friends! For this edition of BBR I’ve chosen a record I recently picked up by a native of Colorado!
Mr Paul Whiteman, “The King of Jazz,” folks
I’ll admit, when I first bought this album, I was was really just interested in hearing the arrangement of George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue (the first recording of this song ever by the way), but after reading more about Mr, Whiteman on the back side of the album, I had found something much more special! Paul Whiteman was a prolific big band and Jazz composer, having written over 3000 arrangements for his band and others. During the 20s, he became the most popular band leader with an imposing group of up to 35 musicians. By 1922, he was in charge of over 28 ensembles on the east coast and was earning over a $1,000,000 a year. Damn!
So here is a trimmed version of Rhapsody from the movie “King Of Jazz”
Colorado has been so good to us, and we still have more show coming up. Today we’re in beautiful Bond at State Bridge! Showtime is 5:30pm! Come check us out y’all!
Cannot wait to be in Colorado for 2 beautiful weeks! Playing in Boulder this Friday at the Gold Hill Inn & Denver this Saturday at the Bluebird Theater w/ Atomga!
Can’t wait till then? Catch us tonight in Lawrence, KS at the Bottleneck! 2 sets – show starts at 9pm.
Three truly amazing things ladies and gentlemen:
1) We’re playing in Athens, GA tonight at the Foundry as part of our Important Things Humans Should Know CD release tour. Grab your tickets here. Show starts at 8pm – we’re playing 2 sets.
2) We have a new 6th member! Adam Lessnau will be joining us as a guest trombonist though the remainder of our Important Things Humans Should Know tour. The brass is booming big now baby. Come dig his chops tonight at the Foundry, or one of our other many tour dates on the left sidebar.
3) Noah’s 10 year beard is getting out of control. He’s only 9 months in, and it already covers bowties and has a tiny refrigerator cabinet were he keeps a conservative assortment of 8 oz sodas. Somebody make it stop…
It’s going down tonight in D.C. at Gypsy Sally’s! 4 piece Brooklyn-based Roosevelt Dime starts the show at 8:30 then Dirty Bourbon closes out the night at 10pm. Tix are $15 at the door, or $12 at the above link. Come get some!
