Listen To This Band Dammit – Stereo Reform

Man, I don’t update this blog very often. Well, anyhow, I saw this amazing three piece last Friday. Stereo Reform is re-inventing the funk genre through savy electronic elements. I dig it.

Listen to this Band Dammit! – Cicada Rhythm

Out of the box late last year, Cicada Rhythm has made some serious headway over the last couple of months. Everywhere they go they capture audiences with their silky harmonies and romantic lyrics tied up into a folksy duet.

Their genuine approach to music let us glimpse into the passion a musician has for their craft. Its hard not to notice something going on, on the stage that you aren’t privy too.

Only my second time seeing them, they were a fitting opener for 99x’s Unplugged In The Park on July 15th.

Listen To This Band Dammit – Baby Baby

By now Atlanta surely has heard of the up and coming party band Baby Baby. After their cover feature on Performer magazine over the past year and a half the band has been on a steady rise and constantly on my own radar.

What I dig about this band is that they just don’t give a shit. They do things their way. For instance, the video below is hilarious. Its not just a music video, but a well shot representation of the band’s personality.

Listen to This Band Dammit – Damion Suomi & The Minor Prophets

A few days ago I posted a video I took of a great band called Damion Suomi & The Minor Prophets. Well I’ve been digesting their album like its liquid rainbow unicorn tears and I’ve come to the conclusion that you should listen to this band dammit!

Here’s their single Mustard Seed

Today is my 25th birthday. My girlfriend of 9 years wrote this for me.

Today is your day, the big TWENTY FIVE
To you it seems longer than you’ve been alive
Sometimes you say that you’ve not done enough
And to hear that come from you is a little rough
While right now you may not be ‘raking in dough’
There are other things your hard work has to show
For example our relationship is going quite strong
As far as I can tell we’ve been getting along 😉
Mama Gypsy continues to impress and get shows
With each late night practice her skill level grows
Lastly The Lost Boys shot for two days straight
Yesterday we helped and stayed out quite late
As for you you’ve grown so much since we met
The days of ‘the green van’ and playing clarinet
And even though tonight you’ve got something to do
I’ll wish you a Happy Birthday and leave this poem for you

This is the greatest thing I’ve ever received for my birthday.

Basement Bands: Brandon Brains, B.Done, DII

I’ve been wanting to do this for a while…

I work sound at a venue called The Music Room, a small room in the basement of a previously opened pizzeria. The venue frequently has free shows and is often a landing pad for bands new to the Atlanta music scene. Often overlooked, many of these bands are quite good.

A few such acts, of the hip hop variety, stopped by June 17th. Armed to the teeth with wit and charm these guys were a blast to hang out with. The first date of their, ironically named, Hollow Grammar Tour these guys arrived with a brand of hip hop that Atlanta desperately lacks. With quick wit and intelligent lyrics, they’re definitely worth a listen.
