Welcome back to CASUAL FRIDAYS! Our weekly, one-microphone recording series!
This week we welcome The Lovely Few into our home. The Lovely Few are part of Hearts & Plugs (another SC record label that is made up of some good buddies of ours), and use this “casual” situation to forego their usual programmed blips, bleeps, & bloops, and perform their song “Cassiopeia” with an acoustic guitar and an amped synth. We were also lucky enough to have our friends over at SceneSC come over and capture the whole thing on a fancy video camera, so not only can your eyes rest on a beautiful rendition of a hamburger clad businessman (by Jordan Blackmon), but also some moving pictures of The Lovely Few playing their lovely song. ENJOY!
The Lovely Few are also playing a show NEXT SATURDAY in Columbia, SC at the Fountain Room in Tapp’s Art Center with Mr. Jenkins! I Think they are planning exciting surprises for it!
These are posted in VERY LIMITED NUMBERS around downtown Columbia. They will be for sale at the show.
Scene SC is also giving away a poster and some stickers with a pair of tickets to the show! Just register to win online. Winner will be announced March 20.
Thanks to The Half and Half and Scene SC!
ELIM BOLT/Wilder Maker/The Lovely Few This Thursday, February 21. Performing at Tin Roof at 9pm. $5. 1117 Magnolia Rd., Charleston, SC 29407.
Art Bar. Columbia, SC. January 26, 2013.
Tonight we’ll be playing our first show of 2013. It’s also the first show we’ve played as a full band since… well, about 10 months ago. It’s the first show we’ve played where Alan gets to show off his fancy new wedding ring, where Kate and I have to have a babysitter… it’s kind of a big deal for us on a personal level.
It’s also the first night we’re using some new gear. Alan uses an iPad for a good deal of his synth voices and sampling. He used an Alesis iodock (i think) last year. He’s moved over to an Akai SynthStation 49. Tonight he’ll debut that. He’s also using a new flugelhorn.
Myth, Hype and Nonsense: Days Before ‘Doomsday’: “As for the Maya culture, their ancient civilization and modern day descendents, I propose a toast (on Dec. 21) for an amazing calendar system. The Long Count not only represents an ingenious means of documenting time, it is a testament to the timeless fascination we have with a culture we are only just beginning to learn about. The Long Count is the last breath of the ancient Maya, so I suggest we celebrate — and not fear — this momentous day.”
On Friday, forget the Mayan “prophesy” — the Mayans NEVER prophesied the end of the world. Instead, celebrate the end of a wonderfully complex calendar system and the last breath of an ancient civilization. The Maya descendents will be celebrating the end of the 13th baktun, and so will I. So, on Dec. 21, raise a glass and #DrinkToTheMaya ~Ian
PS. For all the information you ever needed about the Maya, their calendar and other weird doomsday scenarios, check out the special Discovery News Wide Angle: “‘Mayan Doomsday’ Is Not The Apocalypse”
Good thoughts in here. If you’re prepping for the apocalypse, or something cosmically destructive, listen to this. If you’re prepping for a new age, listen to this. If you don’t know which way to go, listen to this.
