We’re excited about pretty much everything this month, because it’s all exciting!
First off, we’re about to release a studio recording and music video for “the Whovian People,” our tribute to Doctor Who cosplayers by way of Marilyn Manson.
No, really. That’s a thing we made. We’re super proud of it. Coming soon!
Next up, we’ve got Alice to come play at our First Fridays residency on August 7. You might know Alice as the house band for The Labyrinth of Jareth, an event that us Henson geeks are basically in love with.
Have a listen to their album below!
What next? Oh, just the Ventura County Fair. No biggie.
Kidding — it’s huge.
Growing up in Ventura, the fair has always been a part of our lives, and we couldn’t be more proud to be part of it in return.
We’ll be playing two sets on August 13th, at 6pm and
8pm 7pm. Not 8pm — apologies; our web guy can’t read.
This is an all ages show at a reasonable hour, and it’s free with fair admission. So, that’s pretty much all of your excuses out the window. Come see us!
On another stage just around the corner, the B-52s are also playing.
August 14th, we’re in Silver Lake, but more importantly: Chamber Band is in Silver Lake.
We’re playing a show with Chamber Band.
This is a dream come true, and a year in the making.
If you’re not familiar, Chamber Band tells epic stories through song, weaving harmonies and dynamics to really take listeners on a journey. Their first album, “Deities”, brought us songs of love and heartache in the world of Dungeons and Dragons. Their second album, “Careers”, explores the world of the Hunger Games trilogy.
Some of that might sound like it’d be a gimmick, but it really isn’t. They create a heightened reality and manifest the things they love through their music. It’s what we strive for ourselves. (In fact, seeing Chamber Band perform in our early days really helped encourage us to keep going in this direction.)
Have a listen to “Deities” now:
(“Careers” launches 10-06-2015. If you want to hear those songs earlier, you should come to the show.)
Seriously, do check them out. And if you’re able, come out to the show.
