Mark Kelley (of The Roots) joins Oceanographer full time
After spending a month with us, Mark Kelley decided he wanted to make the long term commitment and has joined Oceanographer full time. We've been working on writing new material with him and he's been taking us in some exciting new sonic directions. We're hoping to debut some of the brand new tunes when his tour schedule with The Roots settles down and we can do some weekend shows in Brooklyn and Manhattan in August.
Live Performance on the Artie Lange Show, Friday June 5th at 9PM (EDT)
Would you believe we actually made a press release about this, and sent it to real press people? I'm going to quote it right here: "Oceanographer will be making their first televised appearance as musical guests on The Artie Lange Show on Friday, June 5th LIVE at 9pm EDT on DIRECTV ch. 239." If you can't tune in to see it we'll send everyone a link soon where they can watch the video after the fact.
Live *EARLY* show at The Mercury Lounge, Monday June 10th at 6:30PM
We're playing with a great Canadian band called Half Moon Run. We think they kind of sound like a cross between Band Of Horses, Fleet Foxes and Grizzly Bear. They're definitely worth seeing. We go on at 6:30PM and they go on at 7:30PM. It's a perfect time for you to cut out of work a tad early, hit the lounge and grab a drink just in time to catch our first song. Then the show's over in time for you to get home and get a full night's sleep before you wake up to the daily grind all over again.
Just to be safe you should RSVP to the Facebook event here.
And then you should just go ahead and buy advance tickets here.
And with that, we hope you are having a good transition from spring into summer and we'll see you soon!
