as promised, here's the first batch of videos from our acoustic session with team WE'LL MISS YOU MORE from an old abandoned YMCA in Chattanooga, TN. we spent about three hours with them in this old amazing space before our show there in Chatt on March 24th. it was a lot of fun, and so far very excited with the results. not a whole lot of forethought when in to all of this. all pretty spontaneous and very fun.
this first one is in the old pool room and is our tune A WHALE, A FISH off of the EP of the same name that was our first official release on Tender Loving Empire back in September 2007. pretty rare tune at live shows and we've never had a more perfect setting for it.
this other one is of ANTOINETTE or technically Antoinette pt. 1 & Antoinette pt. 2 from our most recent full length Vs Wilderness. had never played this tune like this before. came out pretty well. and LOVED the old basketball court. i'm sure lots of ballers in short shorts used to game there. this building was so epic.
looking forward to seeing how the other two turned out.... will post those when they're done. thanks to Sahale Jensen (camera + edit) and Ben Norskov (audio) for their vision and for making it happen. fun fun fun.
great show in Asheville, NC last night with Saint Solitude!! enjoying the beautiful spring weather and blossoms here today. and ate some epic BBQ and southern sides at local mecca 12 Bones today for lunch after playing some hoops in not so short shorts. playing a sweet house show with friends tonight here in town. bonfire! rock music! stoked.
