Sharing the Hate, Spreading the Pain: Dualing Pianos

by on Aug.30, 2007, under Articles, Sharing the Hate

It was once told to me by a bar owner that he runs a bar with original music, because he loves music. He did not own and run a bar with original music to make a lot of money. If he had wanted to make a lot of money, he would have opened a hot dog stand. Not to my surprise two years later, the bar transformed itself into a TV infested sports bar complete with a hot dog stand out front offering dogs and sausages. I guess he stopped loving music, or he was just trying to make money.

The overriding question then becomes, can a band or a bar make money at any level with original music? Hell YES, but you have to play by certain rules. These rules are very unsettling for bands that just want to play a half hour set six times a month. I am talking about playing covers.

If your band can play requests for money, your $500, four-hour set might get close to $1,000 in a night. Am I preaching that your eight to ten original songs need to be nestled gently within 60 to 80 cover songs spanning the past 25 years of music in your genre as part of your arsenal? Hell YES! There are several benefits other than money to taking this route:

1) Learning How Songs Are Written
2) Becoming Tighter
3) Stage Experience
4) Money

Why we chose:

Regulators – You know it’s sorta ironic to be in Key West at a Bachelor party and not think the reason you are there is because the dude getting married has a woman. That’s when John hits me up with, “Listen to my new tune that’s about to be released.” It’s catchy, poppy, danceable, and twangy. Perfect to sit back and taunt CK with, while we record an episode. I don’t think I’ve been this excited about a song since the Counterfeit Gypsies found me back in Episode 3.

Chatam – Considering we are down in the Keys to party, our theme of songs is dancing and having a good time. It should be everyone’s theme song for having a good time with its pop-punk feel. Pop-punk party pool people playing. Yup.

The Delivery Boys – They walked all over Ybor city handing out demos for their show at the Orpheum a couple of months ago. I walked all over Duval Street for several days collecting demos a month later. The last time I walked this much it was for episode 2 and the Summer Jam III review. This time around I walked for hours on end with no plan in site, other than showering when I was done. In honor of The Delivery Boys walking around town, we decided to play their song about a bed. However, this bed doesn’t stand still either.

Wonderful Johnson – A repeat? What were we thinking? Ray did such a fine job telling us about the nuances and intricacies recorded into the song, we have to give it another spin. Listen closely, or you’ll miss something, like you probably did the first time around. Time to take us back to the very first song of the season.

Emily’s Toy Box – They’re the kids talking trash in back of the bus, come and join them.

Sharing the Hate, Spreading the Pain: On Hypocrisy

by on Aug.23, 2007, under Articles, Sharing the Hate

Why purple? Not sure, but of the two writing tablet choices present at Walgreens, the crux of the situation had a bright red option or a bright purple option? I went with the bright purple option because I really didn’t want a huge beacon of a book saying, “Hey, I’m writing something down, which might be important,” and then for someone to consider that statement an excuse to come harass me. Alas, I digress, because with a Necronomicom pendant donned, all black garb, sunglasses, no sweat, and 100+ degree heat index, isolation is a guarantee. I can safely start this passage On Hypocrisy:
