FREE SAMPLE at Webers Place 10/27

This Thursday, enjoy a brand new musical excursion, FREE SAMPLE. Led by guitarist and video game enthusiast Brice Albert, the music is a funky-fresh mix of electronica meets acoustica, analog synths and grooves. This is the least "jazz" band I'm in right now, so you should take a gander and see what lies beyond. Webers Place is a sports bar in the San Fernando Valley with a laid back vibe, tons of good beers on tap, and some delicious fried munchies, not to mention this killer new Thursday night music series.
Gonna be at least this exciting

New Music

A quick hello and some recent/upcoming happenings!

Last night I had the pleasure of seeing and experiencing an album pre-release show by Louis Cole and Genevieve Artadi. Their second album, "Think Thoughts", should prove to be a continually strong follow-up of their self-titled debut, a roar of analog synth meeting groove-crushing drumset with voice weaving in, around, and through. These two are really into something fresh and invigorating, and their multi-media set last night shows their increasing ability and strength in a live setting. Get a piece of their youtube channel and get you ears around their albums!

I'm gearing up for a couple of maiden voyage performances with a new group. Led by guitarist Brice Albert, the group Free Sample draws heavily from electronic influences, especially the musical machinery of Bjork and the crunchy analog of 1990's video game music. We're doing an hour set at noon this Friday (10/21) at CalArts, and the following Thursday we're performing at Weber's Place in Reseda. This new Thursday night series has produced some great nights already, so we're excited to jump in...more details soon.
