Better late than never! We found our Steal Your Fest show from summer (August) 2012 up on Archive.org. That was a great time, and a fun event. Look for it next year.
We’re excited to have Derek on board. Here’s our Top reasons -
- He’s been playing bass since he was a kid
- He’s been in a barbershop quartet
- He might secretly be Spiderman (I mean, look at that photo…)
- He’s a drunkard of fine beers (just like us)
- He gets the whole jam thing
- It’s easy to remember his name (same as the old bassist)
- He’s the only one who answered our ad
Kidding on the last point, but Derek is adding great ideas to our jams. We’re excited to keep on playing together, starting with our new kickoff at Champions on July 21st.
We’ve done some cool cover tunes in our last 2 years…
My Guitar Wants To Kill Your Mama – Frank Zappa
Dear Prudence – The Beatles
One Big Holiday – My Morning Jacket
Harder They Come – Jimmy Cliff
The Weight – The Band
Oh Sweet Nothing – Velvet Underground
Rueben And Cherise – The Grateful Dead
Voodoo Child – Jimi Hendrix
Bugger Off – Dubliners
Blister In The Sun – Violent Femmes
Dear Mr. Fantasy – Traffic
Got any requests?
Did you catch our acoustic show at The Hard Bean? In true rock n’ roll spirit, we gave the “unplugged” thing a shot without even a rehearsal. We think it worked.
It’s with a heavy heart that we announce Derek, our cuddly bassist, is leaving The Heard, in body only. He’s still with us in spirit and may do guest appearances. He played a huge role in our growth this last year. But our brother and friend has a ton of great songs and a lot more music to share. Follow him.
Please help us reach our goal on Kickstarter to fund our new album. Anything helps, even $1. Thanks so much!
We love playing with great bands. If you’re a great band and think your sound works with ours, let’s do (or swap) some shows! Contact Casey at email@example.com.
We’re excited to be headlining the Canal Street Pub on Saturday, April 7 (our Easter show). We consider this our home! We hope to see you there. In the meantime, enjoy this awesome awesome poster by Sarah Joyce.
