#70 Down and Out on 10-19-11

We were invited back by Darin and Heather of the Hangout Group, this time playing with Dark Furs (great mood/vocals) and Heather's band Lady Katherine (washes of guitar/flowing melodies). Jason LaRocca on keys. We had just released the video for Famous For Dying and coincidentally a zombie movie was playing on the TVs at the bar.

New Video: Famous For Dying

We teamed up again with video director Lior Molcho to make this deliciously gory and over-the-top video. He had long wanted to do something like this with us. We also had special effects support from horror icon Walter Phelan. So here it is:

#69 The Whaler on 10-14-11

We were quite eager to play the Whaler again, and this time Hello Vegas actually got to play as well. We once again had Jason LaRocca on keys (though his laptop tried to not work just before we played) and the show was a sweaty fun fest. There was a crazy dancing man (always a plus) and lots of positive shouting. We won over Venice a second time.

#68 Silverlake Lounge on 10-13-11

This show was planned well in advance and we made a point of getting in touch with the other bands ahead of time to cross promote as much as possible. This made for a great evening of camaraderie. We played with Old Monk (from NY), Small Hours and Worrier. Worrier had a great lighting setup on stage, and were an impressive live act. I spent a lot of time talking to the other bands and it was quite enjoyable. The other amazing part of this show was Jason LaRocca (old band chum of mine, from the Briggs) played keys with us, adding a lush supportive element that really belongs in our music ALL the time.
