I decided to play an open mic night Thursday night at the star & the shamrock. Figured it’d be a nice way to work on some new stuff without playing an actual show. So if you’re in dc, c’mon by h street Thursday night. Should be a fun time.
Working on one more new song. Also, been thinking about how I want to do things for a release next year… I love seven inch records, and have been contemplating putting out an EP/2 seven inches. Two seven inches, or one digital ep with all the songs. Maybe six tunes, three per record, and all six on the digital ep. Since I get to lay down my own solo stuff in the studio next month while we’re working on the soundtrack, all I’d have to pay for is getting a record pressed, so if all goes well, I can release a record on my own without a label. It’s a lot to think about, but with a decent amount of work, I think I can get it done in the next 6 months or so.
Wrote some punk songs today. I don’t know if they’ll mesh with my solo stuff, or if they’ll be material for another project. It was fun being loud though. Sometimes I miss playing Punk and hardcore. Always feels good to yell…
There should be a movie/soundtrack update soon. It’s getting close to time when I find out things and would be allowed to reveal stuff. :P Also, it looks like I’ll be able to get in the studio and do some professional recordings of my stuff sometime in January/February, since my buddy and I will be in the studio for the soundtrack stuff anyhow. So there will be some kind of release hopefully in the next six months or so.
New tunes are in the works. Got two new sets of chords to write words to, and one older song from a previous project that I think fits nicely with my new stuff once I change the key and rework the changes. So that’s three new tunes you can expect to hear in the next couple weeks. I’m going to start tracking demos tomorrow.
Man, between getting ready to play shows and writing more music and waiting to hear back about this movie thing, I’m getting a bit antsy. I always liked doing things more than talking about them and when there’s not much I can do, I get a little stir crazy… More updates later.
