I haven’t posted on here for a second because I’ve been busy in the non internet world. I don’t consider myself to be anything other than a person with an aggressive imagination. I play music because I like how sounds make me picture situations in my head. With that in mind, it’s only natural that the live aspect to the music I make would be something like a daydream. This is a picture of a test run of the stage design I thought up after watching the movie, ‘Beyond the Black Rainbow’. I felt so much from that movie that was aligned with already existing feelings that I found it only civilized to bring it to life in my world.
I love this picture by Lane Coder right now because it gives me the sense of things fitting together. Sometimes our worlds can seem completely on their head, but those select times, when everything is clicking and being yourself seems to only feed the starving beast… those are the times I love.
The Werehaus banged out this sick video on Jravis Jensen’s perspective on photography. The video takes you on a mini tour of San Francisco. A really random fact about the video is that one of the dudes in the piece… his friend, pulled a big ol hunting knife on me and my friend one time when I told him to fuck off after he said some racist nonsense to us. Life is so strange.
Made this video and song the other day. Hope I get to show the all mighty Ms. Kate Bush where I went with her timeless piece, Running up That Hill. The original is below, def check it out.
It’s a super nice day out here in the city so I figured I’d put up a nice day type of song from our friend Diane Coffee
So I basically wanted to put this up today because this dude is killing the automobile game 100%. This would be the exact car I’d have if I didn’t live in such a bike friendly part of the world. The T top is too classic and not going for some lame ass 21″ rims was a gentleman’s choice. Stoked Terry Barentsen was there to capture the moment for us.
Stoked to be playing the famous Noise Pop festival in San Francisco Friday, February 27th at the Independent alongside the Cathedrals, Tropics and DJ Turf Yard. It’s perfect timing that the taste making blog, The Bay Bridged, marked Crashing Hotels as one of the best submitted bands of 2014! The show is shaping up to be a magical situation so I hope some of you get to catch it out!
Last night my home boy Johnny from the hot hot band, Cathedrals, hit me up for a jam session. We linked up and instantly showed each other some new fun sounds we’ve been working on. The night wasn’t as cold as it’s been so we both figured since it was a Thursday… we should prolly get some beers. We jammed for a couple of hours and ended up walking home singing and belting like two drunken sailors. Anyway… shit was fun and I wanted yall to check out their video.
The hook in this song is just too killer. “How can you love someone who can’t love you, how can you love someone you can’t leave.” Stoked that Foxygen doing their thing. Anyone writing about how they “fall flat” on some shows needs to pick up on the fact that we NEED this sort of thing in music. Where’s the fun if your favorite band is always on? In my opinion, rock n roll is a big ‘ol jumble of slop and knowing how to let it hang. If you want to walk out on stage and be “nice” for your Mom and Dad who came to see your big show… then you are a fucking lame and I’ll prolly never listen to your boring parent music.
I met this lady in the laundry mat awhile back and I invited her to one of my bands shows. She didn’t show up. I left my number for her just incase she wanted to get in free. She didn’t text me. Fast forward a month and I get a random text as I was watching a movie. It was her. We hung out, her and her room mate were beyond cool. They asked me to watch their cat while they were gone. I was honored. This picture was taken by the lady I met in the laundry mat and I think it’s one of the most magical images I’ve seen in the last year. So happy I left my number for her.
