Austin and I got some cool footage and interviews from the Battle of the Bands this weekend and I got to meet some great artists and authors at Toycon as well! We’ll be editing/uploading the footage soon, but Record Store Day and Starfest are right around the corner…
My friends from Hydrogen Skyline called in a favor and asked me to sell merch for Civil Twilight during their charity show at the Pikes Peak Center last night. Also playing was the local band Claymore Disco and Australian gents, Atlas Genius. It was a lot of fun meeting super excited fans of these great bands and the local music scene, I passed out as many RHZ cards as I could while I was selling out of Civil Twilight merch, it was incredible! So the cherry on top was after the show I got to go backstage…and I got a chance to interview Atlas Genius (here) and Richard and Andrew from Civil Twilight! I was super nervous and came up with all my questions on the spot but hopefully I did an alright job. So I’ll be sharing those soon, but I wanted to thank Hydrogen Skyline for including me in their project and I had a lot of laughs with everyone at the merch table with me.
Come to Gold Hill Java (332 N. Tehon St., Colorado Springs) this Friday for a spectacular show featuring Timmy Vilgiate, AGITO, Zus, A Bad Night for a Hero, and Aaaronn! The show is completely FREE, and will consist entirely of electronic/dance music. It took us 39 hours to create a cyborg zombie just for this show, which should be enough to obligate your attendance. The show is scheduled from 5-9 pm, but very well may blaze onto the streets and into the next meridian.
Last night’s show was a huge success, thanks to a long list of people that I intend to write down just as soon as I recover from it. We had a lot of talent and great performances last night, and things went off even better than I thought they would. But you’re not here to listen to my sappy speeches so let’s get down to it, shall we?
Tonight at Gold Hill Java, The Brainless Horde is hosting a fund drive to raise money for the RHZ Awards. We’ll be selling a 6-track cd (featuring local artists) and other goodies for donation and bringing you some great music as always! But let’s not forget Gold Hill’s delicious drinks and delectable fudge! Hope to see you there, dudes and dudettes. Have a happy Friday!
So I just wanted to let everyone know that we’re pushing the art deadline back to the 13th. We’ve got some awesome prizes for all of you who send us entries and we want to make sure you all have time to enter. So please, if you haven’t already, send us your best artwork of 2012, or your finished zombie piece. There’s not much time left, and you don’t want to miss out!
P.S. The Fund Drive will still take place on the 11th. as well as the deadline for music entries. Hope to see you there!
