We were given word about two days back that Scott Lucas would not be opening our gig with Local H in April. Today I discovered why and how! This article blew my mind. The number one thing a vocalist worries the most about when it comes to music is…well…his voice!
Definitely a huge bummer and I wish Scott the best on his recovery. We need you back and screamin’ for Local H!
FREE Download of “I Need Some Sleep” cover by The Eels
When you are in a band it’s undeniable that you will make friends with people in other bands, and a lot of time, some fun and sweet collaborations come out of that. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Ash Maynor, lead vocalist, and mastermind behind Ghost and The City, for about 6 years now. Pretty much any time Picture Atlantic and Ghost and the City play a show together he will ring me and say “Wanna do something random and last minute with me?” and I will say “Who is this?”. Once he explains who he is , I quickly remember that we are old friends and then Ash and I get down to covering a song, or doing acoustic versions of each others tunes. Basically homie stuff.
This time around though, he suggested we cover “I Need Some Sleep” by The Eels in preparation for our show together on Nov. 30th at Bottom of The Hill in SF. The track..well..damn..it sounds amazing in my humble opinion. All recorded by ASh.
So please enjoy! You can also download the song for free too, so be sure to do that if you dig it! Thank you to Ash and Ghost and the City! We hope to see you Friday.
Wow. That is all I can say about last nights gig. That was an amazing first SF Rock Hop. And the dance party at the end to all that Soul and Motown was seriously the added icing on the cake. So glad to see us kids get up and dance and have fun, and not be snobby and talk about fairtrade coffee in the corner. Also props to all the super snazzy dressers and acolyte Mods out there. You were all a beautiful crowd.
Also gotta hand it to Finish Ticket, Please Do Not Fight and Coastjumper for their amazing sets, and their amazing support as friends and musicians. We love you guys more than you know.
That was our last show for a while. Our next shows are all going to be CD release tour gigs, and this has us way to excited. More info soon!
Much love to all you lovers, haters, and limbo people!
June 4th we’re returning to SF to play Bottom of The Hill with our good friends Rin Tin Tiger. Also making amazing guest appearances will the fantastic Lakes, whom we’ve had the pleasure of playing with before, and SF’s very own Handshake. Get your pre-sales while you can at www.bottomofthehill.com
