Oh baby. My boy Frank set up this jam for the band he manages, City Lark.
Joining Caddywhompus and the aforementioned will be the infamous High in One Eye and a split set by Tyler Scurlock (aka Sharskteeth) and Ross Farbe (aka Native America).
It’s last minute and crazy, but it’s for sure gonna be a Jurassic Party.


The best night ever

It was a warm summer night in Houston when while packing up my car after a show my girlfriend at the time pulled me aside and said, “Hey Chris, isn’t that that guy from those videos??”.
My mind searched for who she was talking about until I turned around and saw Him.

He was a little over six feet tall and built wider and stronger than I ever could have imagined.
He was rolling with his running buddy Str8 Barz and they looked fly as fuck.
I quickly ran over with my girl and my camera and documented history.
I told him what an inspiration he’s been for me and how dope it is that he holds it down so hard on these isosceles streetz. Riff Raff is a true hero.

i wanna grow up to be just like him.

Aight so sometimes I play in this fun little band Sun Hotel. This coming week (SPRING BREAKKK!!! XOXOX ROFL LOL!) we’re going on tour all along the dirty dirty thirdy thirdy coast. As of right now, I have no idea if I’ll be up on stage gathering girlies like the rest of the bros or if i’ll be hustlin’ merch and koozies and phone numbers for the jamsters themselves. Either way, it’ll be going down from March 25th till April 5th. I’m most excited about kickin it at Tyler “Back dat ass up” Scurlock‘s crib and seeing what it’s like to eat nothin but marshmallows all day. I’m bringing lots of drugs with me and hiding them in everyone else’s backpacks. You know, just to fuck with them. I’m also bringing extra fireworks.

Here’s the facebook event for the “Alex Hertz’s Bachelor Party Sassy Pants” Tour. Don’t miss these shows or we’ll kill you stone cold dead-ass.


Meet Julianna Barwick

So I recently got my hands two releases by Louisianian-turned-Brookylnite Julianna Barwick, and they have me hypnotized. The first thing I heard by her was her first official release, “Sanguine“. It’s a short album of all vocal loop-based songs. According to her website, “Sanguine serves as an intimate group of melodies displayed through the minimal tools of a 4 track, a loop pedal, and a beautiful voice”. It also mentions that many of her songs are improvised during the recording process and many were written “on the fly”. Maybe this is why her music attracts me so much, given I’ve been implementing a similar recording and songwriting method as of late. Today, I got a copy of her most recent record, “Florine” and I was reminded again of my appreciation of this musician and of her music’s existence.

Check out the song “Unt 3” to get a feel for her music (this is from her first album, Sanguine).

Here’s a recording of her playing live at KSCR Radio on November 18, 2009.

There’s something special about these loops that makes them stand out and take me over despite their wallpaper attire.
