hey guys, here’s some sweeties footage of us rocking @ the tank last April. have fun and don’t forget the show this upcoming Monday!!2 comments
Did you know that we are at war with an Earth band? That’s right. We are. I wasn’t going to mention it, but then I realized that if we didn’t tell you the odds would be in the favor our our enemy because there are more people in their band…
Los Campesinos! you are going down.
Punk rock may have broken all our heart’s in 2007 but that doesn’t mean I will sit idly by when a band with much more popularity almost steals our August show at the Mercury Lounge.
Yes you heard me right…we were almost bumped off that bill so that Los Campesinos! could have a PRACTICE show before their Bowery Ballroom gig. Maybe this is because they couldn’t all fit in a practice room — there’s SO DAMN MANY OF THEM!
And that is why I thought you should know, lil fanbase, because I’m small and need protection. PSYCHE!!! ATTACK!!! You are going down Campesinos! (Also, Aleks…just because you are no longer a Campesinos! doesn’t mean that you are safe from my wrath)
We are going to win. It will look like this.3 comments
Mercury Lounge video from Ilin Chung. You can watch whole songs being performed!! It’s just like being at the show!
Some other fun stuff happened off-stage last week too. Like J’aime and I was making music outside with a very friendly homeless guy! For a really long time! And Cecilia, from the Backlights, almost got in a fight with a muay thai master! AND, to top it all off, there were CUPCAKES!!! for Lara’s birthday! Sooooo yummy! Thank you for coming to the show and making it awesome!
I almost forgot! Wasn’t the drummer, Chelsea Davis, of The Start amazing? She was like this, but for a whole hour and a half!!! So hot!
And if you weren’t there, well…. I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to catch these precious moments on video for you. You should really come next time instead of getting sick and having to work late and forgetting and stuff! ^_^ j/k! I love you!No comments
As promised, here are the photos & videos from MMNY! Yay!!!
Roadside Graves was so fun I almost bought a beer!
And Fan-Tan was dreamy!
Finally, this is a video of us. It’s the longest video ever! I couldn’t decide which clips to post — so I mushed all the clear shots of -004 (and some of our friends) together! It’s so rare that anyone gets to see him on stage. Plus, I think the choppiness really captures the essence of our set with all the equipment malfunctions. ^_^
Starring: -004!!! also featuring: Naked Highway, J’aime and I, Backlights, The Last King of England, and i.HUG!
Look at how -004 moves! Amazing!1 comment

Don’t worry, I will practice more! Plus Amazon’s delivering me a sweet headset mic tomorrow so that I’ll be able to see my hands when I sing! ^_^
“What’s -001 gonna do without his vocoder!?” you say?
He won’t tell us! I’ve got my fingers crossed for a MIDI tambourine!!
P.S. Did you get the newsletter? We really do want to know what you’ve been up to, maybe we could hang out or something! Feel free to leave a comment!No comments
We’ll be playing at Lit Lounge with R Sun (all the way from the SCARIEST PLACE in IOWA yo!), Rig 1 (“experimental” yet familiar & danceable!), and Doctor Scientist (they will make you jump around harder than Jillian Michaels!). We’re going on last, more deets to come.
I can’t even begin to explain how very excited we are. I haven’t been to Lit in years! In preparation, we’ve been working really hard on some new rhythms & techniques! Here is some secret footage!
Doesn’t the synergy make your skin tingle? Now you know: we are amazing even when we’re rehearsing. The only thing that could make us better is another keyboardist! Where are you???
P.S., We’re still playing at The Annex w/The Drums on June 10th. ^_^2 comments
