Tomorrow night we’re playing an indie rock show in a comic shop dressed as characters from Doctor Who and weaving in some Who themes with our music to celebrate the new Doctor. It’s one of the many times that having a violinist in a rock band is really awesome. If all of this sounds like the best thing ever to you, we need to be friends!
San Jose, doors at 7:30pm (if you wanna watch the premier with us around 5:30 you’re welcome to join, ask for details)
I’ve seen some of the costumes that will be employed at our show this weekend and DAMN are they glorious. Classic Who looks to be fully represented as well, which as a kid who grew up with Tom Baker makes my heart warm.
If you’re a whovian or a fan of indie rock in the Bay Area you should make a point to head to San Jose’s coolest comic shop for a night you won’t forget.
Geoff will be joining me on stage for this set and the whole thing is Doctor Who themed, which is going to be great. There will be some Doctor Who music and I will, no doubt, wear something very silly.
In case you haven’t noticed, I updated my Tumblr a bit.
Really excited about playing this show with Zen. He’s a super talented guy, the frontman of Erin’s last band (Please Do not Fight) and most importantly: one of the best Whovians I know. Couldn’t think of a better person to have a Doctor Who rock show with.
We released ‘AFTER THE LIGHTS FAILED' on May 30th to a sold-out crowd at SLG Publishing's Art Boutiki in San Jose. (Yes, SLG as in Johnny The Homicidal Maniac, Squee, etc. They have a music venue now and it's incredible).
We didn’t think about filming it but other people did, so huge thanks to Michael Tang, Eiko Okura and Lester Barrows for sending us some video, this was fun to put together! The way the crowd goes nuts at the end of Alan’s violin solo is just wonderful. That was such an amazing night. Looking forward to our 'Doctor Who' costume concert there on August 23rd.
On August 23rd we are playing one of the nerdiest shows we’ve ever done. DOCTOR WHO COSTUME PARTY / ROCK SHOW AT A COMIC SHOP.
Come celebrate the new Doctor with us! $2 off admission if you’re in costume, and we’ll have all manner of fun Timelordian things going on. Even if you don’t care about the good Doctor, (GASP) this is a fully functioning rock show featuring us, Plus or Minus (Seattle), Grey Fyr and the amazing Zen Zenith!
