Friends! Countrymen! Fellow World Citizens!
Happy New Year! We survived another trip around the sun, another twelve-chapter tour of the old calendar, and it's time we can pretend none of the stupid mistakes we made matter and we can feel like we are starting over with a blank slate.
HOORAY! Now let's start mucking up this whole 2014 business!
Oceanographer is celebrating by playing a bunch of new songs (well, four new songs) at Brooklyn Bowl this Thursday. These are tunes we've been working on with Mark Kelley, the guy from The Roots we've been telling you about. And I gotta tell you, he's making some surprising adjustments to our sound.
We'll be playing first, at 8PM, and following us is some of my personal friends in Wild Yaks as well as some crazy guys in a crazy band called Workout. This line up is really acrobatically jumping all over the map as far as style and sound goes. So come on out and bowl and listen to some music. We play at 8PM.
And later this month...
...we're playing two weeks from TODAY at The Grand Victory for their second anniversary fête So keep that on the calendar too. Details:
Thanks as always for paying attention to us; we are, after all, desperately lonely and hungrily seeking attention. See you at some shows coming up soon!
