Our First Fridays Residency is going on hiatus!

The Velveteen Band is taking some time off to focus on the new album, so May 6th will probably be our last show in Ventura until we come back for the Bombay Beach Party in September.

Not to worry, we’re still popping up here and there before then, if you know where to look. But… don’t spoil the drama, ok?

Our residency has been going in some form or another for almost two years now. And in fact, this show marks the two year anniversary of our first performance as a band.  I guess what I’m trying to say is, it’s going to be a party.

Don’t miss it.

Extended interviews w/ Dan and Jason

Brian Parra, long-time friend of the Ventura music scene, has a podcast.  It’s called “There’s No Time To Explain“, and you can subscribe to it wherever podcasts are subscribed to!

His interviews with Manager Dan, as well as with Foe’s personal stage hand, Jason Amelio, offer great behind-the-scenes insights, if you’re into such things.

(If you’ve got a podcast of your own, and you’d like to interview anyone from the Velveteen Band on it, hit us up on the Contact page!)

Festival of Fools

Did you come see us in Vista, CA? That was a lot of fun, and I wish we had remembered to tell you about it ahead of time!

(we’re usually better about that on Facebook. follow us there!)

Anyway… we got a chance to sit down with Dreadfully Punk, as well as Frenchy and the Punk afterwards, and the conversation was recorded in podcast form.  You can listen to that here.

It was a great time, and we can’t wait to go back again next year!

(go ahead and mark your calendar now, just in case we don’t say anything again)
