The show is this Thursday. Like, less than 3 days away. Let's get our situations straight, make sure everyone who wants to go can, and know how we're getting it done.
As of the current moment, it looks like I still have one seat that has yet to be officially claimed in my car. We're heading down early, aiming to leave Portsmouth for Salem around 6, to spend some time in that awesome city, and not feel rushed, prior to the show. Earlier in the day, I will be in Nashua and driving through Manchester. So, if you're off from work that day, and want to tag along, be in touch.
Other than that, I know that several other people are heading down from NH, and I've heard much talk of car-pool options and available ride-situations. Be in touch, I'll put you in touch with some people, we'll make it happen. Consider this an open-thread for ride arrangements.
Also, I'm vaguely considering booking a room in Salem, as a sort of a crash-pad for the NH kids that "accidentally" drink too much to get home that night. A sort of "throw in whatever you feel" arrangement. So, if you're driving down, throw a sleeping-bag or a blanket in the car, just in case.
Either way, be there. It's not that far, and Salem is a SUPER-fun city. It's destined to be a crazy night.
Big news on the music-front (well, big to me, anyway.)
After a year hiding out in our clandestine studio on the New England coast, my first "real" band in years, Pull Trouble From The Fire, just finished our debut record (as of yet untitled), to be released soon, after a string of phenomenal sessions with Richard Marr at Galaxy Park Studios. It sounds amazing, I promise. Stay tuned.
We have also just booked out debut live show, staying true to our word that this would come as soon as the record was complete. We'll be headlining a show at Dodge Street in Salem, Massachusetts (yes, THAT Salem) on Thursday, July 14th, with Cardinal Law. The show is at 9, it's FREE, and it's "Thirsty Thursday," so, you know, drink specials and shit. Plan to come and get crazy with us. (I'm totally willing to help set up caravan/ convoy/ carpool options from various New Hampshire spots, [as well as possibly going in on a room or something, for those of us who don't have to work too early on Friday], so if you're considering making the trek down, be in touch. It's not that far, and Salem's a super-fun city. [Duh.]) I'm working on a flyer and a facebook event-invite today, I'll post it as soon as it's done.
In other music news, the second record from my solo-project, LeVautourEnsemble, "Machinique Meltdown," is coming along, slowly but surely. I dropped a new video of a track from the record this morning. Check it out.
