House Party 4: Down to the Last Minute

Hello internet!

Whenever I'm on netflix trying to look up the television show "Party Down" the movie "House Party 4: Down to the Last Minute" shows up on the list.

A couple things.

1. Our first show.

Our ["our" being Shaun and Danny] mutual friend Chops is throwing a house party/show at his house in the near future and has asked us to play. We said, "yes." We are very, very excited. We don't have all the details as of yet, but we were asked - and that's good enough for me to want to blog about it.

I do know there will be other bands. Probably.
I know it'll be loud if said bands play.
I know there is a possibility me and Danny might suck, or play very well.
If you come you'll probably hear us play a lot of the stuff on this blog.

And I also know that when I get the details ironed out, I'll post them here.

2. New video practice recording process.

Decided (because the sound has been so terrible) that I would start using a real microphone instead of the built in one on my laptop to record the audio of our practices. I hung up a condenser mic in the middle of the room and angled it toward my guitar/vocal amps. The videos below are using the new recording method. The guitar and vocals are still a bit too low, so I'll probably be setting up a second mic right in front of those above mentioned sounds for our next rehearsal... But these sound better than before.

3. New videos of practice

[And a new video angle!]

Here's a solo Matilda song we just started playing.
It comes from the record "People Only Listen to Recorded Music"
[or the aforementioned record's younger, better brother album, "People Only Listen to Recycled Music"].

2 Birds, 1 Stone

And behind door number 2.
A song we've posted before.
Maybe more than once.
And we're more than likely still working out that ending...

[drum roll]

Black n' Yellow Shirt

[cymbal crash!]

Thanks for sticking with us.
[Even if I'm just posting videos to 3 people, it feels nice to know someone is checking it out.]

We're starting getting the ball rolling now.
Things should become more exciting.

But, then again, you never know.
