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.
Beautiful photo from Lane Coder to bring us into the new year full of all sorts of sex, gore, music, and art.
This photo is from Lane Coder’s ‘Tourists’ project. I really love it because of how some of the birds seem so close and the dude on the beach seems to be in a world of shit.
Last night I was doing the solo Christmas thing. I was having a blast doing 30 minute intervals between practicing drums, guitar, and production/composition when my friend Montrey gave me a ring seeing if I wanted to come over for an orphan dinner. I brought over some Costco sausages and a liter of Patron. The night was super fun and everyone there was more cool than you could ever hope people to be. Here’s a video of one of the cool people I met there. His name is Malcolm. He’s the front man of a band y’all will most likely dig called, K Theory. This video is from a performance they had at the legendary Red Rock Amphitheater in Colorado. Hope y’all enjoy.
Watching so many people walking around with presents and stressing about gifts and money I want to use this Christmas to just be with what I have already. I don’t want to add any more stuff to the space between these walls. Terry Barentsen did an amazing job capturing a man that I’ve seen a bunch on the streets of San Francisco… I hope one day this holiday evolves into something more than stressful consumerism.
