Hey guys, here’s a cover of The Outfield’s Your Love from Dazzler. Enjoy, spread your love, etc.
Sorry Cam for bumping the cumdumpster.
The blog is back! Imma use this opportunity to eat up all of Trevor’s bandwidths.
Here’s a video Dazzler shot this summer while we were hanging at Elysian Park with Dirty Dave and Lisa K and Adelaide. It was really big budget cause of all the exotic locales we flew to in order to get the shots we needed.
Also, we are playing Lobsterfest tomorrow so if you wanna eat 4,000 lbs of lobster and watch us get really fat, come on down. We play right before Rocket and right after midget KISS.
Not like Alexis.
Do you live in any of these places? Is there anything I should be doing/eating/seeing/etc while I am there?
I wanna come back with some good pictures.
In other news, be ready for the DAZZLER/ CUNTPUNT 2010 World Tour.
We have painted 100 collaborative multimedia watercolor pictures and are having a one day opening / closing. We are selling each one for the ridiculous price of ten dollars to help alleviate the cost of gas, Flamin Hot Cheetoes and truck stop dreamcatchers.
We have a couple surprise DJs lined up, as well as a special Dazzler on a half pipe performance at 6pm.
This is all taking place at the magical clothing store/ art gallery / salon/ skate park/ etc known as Barracuda, on 7769 Melrose Ave, across from the flea market.
It’s totally free, but bring cash to buy art and shirts. Be there on Sunday, from 4-7pm, listen to great music, buy real art from real art school dropouts and hang out on a nice summer day.
Here’s a teaser for an awesome video we made with Lisa Katnic-Nikolic, Adelaide Bourbon, Dirty Dave and Rupert. It’ll be up soon, but in the meantime, here’s a little preview featuring Tyler.
Also, we are playing our first show in forever at The Hammer Museum this Thursday at 8:30 sharp. It’s free and all ages, and we are playing with Amazing Baby! It should be a really rad show. Come early, cause this is the first of their summer music things and it’ll hit capacity megafast.
So a couple months back, Neil got his jaw broken in a fight. Hard to believe that Neil would let somebody hit him, but I guess he was having a bad day. In the downtime while he was all wired shut, we made some videos. Here is the first one.
Made by Dazzler, Chris Slater, Andy Hutton, and Kimi. Hope you like it!
And we have a show with Amazing Baby on July 2nd at The Hammer Museum. Hope to see you there!
I really like this band Kid British. They are as close to 4th wave ska as you can get, I suppose. They did their homework. The Specials asked them to open their 30th anniversary tour this year, so someone’s paying attention.
This is them doing an acoustic cover of Katy’s jam. I like it, thought I’d share with you.
Check out their MySpace.
So I just got back into town today and wtf- I saw all these bulletins and shit about Indie 103.1 going off the air. So I checked the website and this is what it said:
This is an important message for the Indie 103.1 Radio Audience -
Indie 103.1 will cease broadcasting over this frequency effective immediately. Because of changes in the radio industry and the way radio audiences are measured, stations in this market are being forced to play too much Britney, Puffy and alternative music that is neither new nor cutting edge. Due to these challenges, Indie 103.1 was recently faced with only one option — to play the corporate radio game.
We have decided not to play that game any longer. Rather than changing the sound, spirit, and soul of what has made Indie 103.1 great Indie 103.1 will bid farewell to the terrestrial airwaves and take an alternative course.
This could only be done on the Internet, a place where rules do not apply and where new music thrives; be it grunge, punk, or alternative – simply put, only the best music.
For those of you with a computer at home or at work, log on to www.indie1031.com and listen to the new Indie 103.1 – which is really the old Indie 103.1, not the version of Indie 103.1 we are removing from the broadcast airwaves.
We thank our listeners and advertisers for their support of the greatest radio station ever conceived, and look forward to continuing to deliver the famed Indie 103.1 music and spirit over the Internet to passionate music listeners around the world.
This makes me pretty bummed. Indie was not perfect, but it was my favorite radio station in Los Angeles, and it’s sad to see the man take yet another thing from us.
Indie was really good to local musicians, and Mr. Shovel in particular, has been very generous to my band. We have played a ton of the Check One Two shows, and in turn have gotten a good amount of play on Indie. It was something reachable and tangible to local Los Angeles bands, and something enjoyable for everyone.
I’m just ranting, but I wonder what other people’s feelings are about this. Do you listen to internet radio? I mostly listened to the radio in my car, at home I have about a trillion songs I’ve downloaded that I haven’t listened to yet. Now that Indie is gone, will everyone have to turn to blogs to find out about new music? Will everyone stop listening to bands with instruments and only listen to blog house?
