Thanks to everyone who came out to see Soporus, Unwed Sailor, and Rosetta on Saturday night in Philadelphia. I think it was a great show and was excited to see all three bands play. Thanks to Joshua for the space and some sound work, Brit and Van for some Mexican magic, and Mike for saving the day with video. Unwed Sailor are continuing to rock for the next couple of weeks. They are planning to do some more touring this summer, as well as a larger U.S. tour in the fall and dates in Europe.
I got to see Denison Witmer play on Sunday out in the middle of nowhere. Always good to catch him playing.
Will, Chris, and Matt from HYMY Industries are planning to print Starflyer 59 7″ covers on Wednesday and Thursday. They’ve developed some special metallic inks for silkscreening/letterpressing and I think these are going to be something really special.
Foxhole and Questions in Dialect are teaming up for some dates at the end of June/early July. I’ll be updating them on the website as soon as more details are filled in. Foxhole’s We The Wintering Tree will be re-issued on btv this fall as both a cd and 2xLP version. We’re starting production on the cd version now.
Bosque Brown are going to enter the studio this weekend with Chris Flemmons from the Baptist Generals (SubPop) for their follow-up full-length to Bosque Brown Plays Mara Lee Miller. The plans are for a release to stores in late Winter/early Spring 2008. I’m hoping the vinyl version is ready before that. We’ll work hard to make this all a reality.
Saxon Shore is playing in Philadelphia at Johnny Brenda’s on Wednesday night. Get out to see the rock.
Oh yeah, the Commissioner is running sound for Dinosaur Jr at an Urban Outfitters in Boston today. The world is a strange and wonderful place.
