Featuring Zach Spound, we present Purple Rain – live at the Blue Lagoon in August 2011, complete with a video slideshow.
Best Friends-ikkah, Completed!
And that’s Best Friends-ikkah! We had 1 demo mp3, 2 show announcements, 2 image files, and 3 videos. Thanks to all those who helped create and film the artwork, the footage, and content for Best Friends-ikkah.
We’ll see you on New Years, and let’s have a great 2012.
At this point, you may be wondering “Wait a minute, two shows! Well, who is this Guy Fox?” Guy Fox is a band from San Francisco. They’ve just recorded their debut EP and are friends of friends (therefore, they’re our friends too!). Their recorded music promises to be a blend of “afrobeat, motown, indie and psychedelia.” Sounds good right?
These shows should be a lot of fun, especially because we will be joined by the wonderfully talented Miss Emily Moldy for the latter.
Fliers coming soon, and we’ll see you at the New Years show!
Taken by Brant Ward of the San Francisco Chronicle (aka Aidan’s dad), this photo gives you a rough idea of the atmosphere at a Best Friends show – in case you haven’t been able to get your sweet patootie over to a concert of ours.
Speaking of dads, also featured is Spencer’s papa bear – looking on approvingly as his son pulverizes them drums.
A very early recording of The Odyssey exists in The Best Friends’ archives that features rap lyrics by Michael Kohatsu, trumpet by Nathan Quave, and Reed Zirjacks on Drums. Though the song developed into its current form about 10 months ago, the title has been around since the very first day we played it. The song has always been a journey of some kind – in fact, our earliest recording of The Odyssey goes on for nearly for 20 minutes! Go ahead and listen to the finished product here…
Odysseus and the Sirens... Can you feel it?
Well folks, here’s that very recording. We’ll probably take it down after the first of the year (it’s a little too rough for our tastes), so go ahead and listen if you’re so inclined!
We’ve decided to celebrate The Festival of Lights in an exciting way in order to say “thank you” to everyone who has supported us over the last (Gregorian) calendar year!
Over the next 8 days, The Best Friends will be posting photos, videos, announcements, and (fingers crossed) mp3′s to celebrate this wonderful occasion – one per day.
Today, we’re announcing a New Years show in Santa Cruz at the Jungle House! Wanna go? Don’t know where that is? Contact The Best Friends directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) and visit the Facebook Event page to RSVP! There will be booze, good times, and great bands – including Infraction Jackson & The Salty Dogs.
