So school has finally come to an end for me, with the exception of one summer school class, and we now have the time to be a band again! We’ve been keeping ourselves busy with lots of shows. We had the honor of playing the first ever Local Live house show. It was crazy to say the least, seeing as it was the one co-op in a neighborhood of frat houses. The night ended with a balcony full of guys across the street shouting at us to show them our d**ks. So we did. Here’s some photos from it!
We’ll have videos from all the past shows and some other pearls when Matt brings the camera back from his vacation in Wisconsin. He’s up there right now writing for the new full length, and should hopefully bring some good stuff home for us to record and share with all of you! But I can share these- Some acoustic versions of some of our earlier stuff. We used Record and one mic to do these one take b- sides to pass the day, and this was the result.
In other news, anyone in the Houston or surrounding areas should come see us at the 2010 Free Press Summer Fest on June 5th and 6th (we play on the 5th). It’s Houston’s biggest musical event of the year (and this is only it’s 2nd year!) that sees great national acts, but more importantly lets local bands play earlier in the day, helping to spread knowledge of the Houston music scene, which is pretty darn good these days. And because someone somewhere thinks the Eastern Sea is a Houston band, we got asked back to play the 2nd time around! Only last year we played at 4pm on the main stage and this year we play 2:30 on the side stage, that should say something about where we’re heading! But don’t care. So come check it out:
We were also the featured artist of the week at the Houston Press to spread the word about the festival. We have a couple more in the works too, so we’ll post them when they’re up. But for now check this one out:
We’ll post more songs and videos upon Matt’s return and maybe Tomas and I can show you some of his solo stuff until then!
