Fair to Midland

Tuesday night I saw Fair to Midland at the Nile. They were awesome! Their lead singer really knows how to put on a great show. He is crazy! At one point he was actually hanging upside down from the ceiling by a pipe. He convulsed and danced around the stage constantly while managing to still stay on pitch.

The band as a whole really impressed me because they knew how to create a mood and project emotion through each of their songs. Each one started with an interesting and sometimes psychologically disturbing recording that set the tone. Each of the band members then carried on and transformed that emotion in their own way. The crowd was enthralled.

I feel that this is missing from a lot of today's music. Where's the pain? Where's the anger? Where are the deep, complicated, and sometimes indescribable feelings that force you to look inside yourself as a listener? If you don't stir emotion in your audience, what is their motivation to get involved and begin a transformation process through your music?

Banners

Tonight we worked on our banners. We are painting three panels that are meant to be part of the same picture. Devin and I painted an eclipse on the middle panel a couple of weeks ago. Tonight Devin painted a sun (still a work in progress) on one panel and I painted the moon on the other:

Recording

Last night we finished recording Anxiety!! Wohooo!! Devin replaced the tubes in his amp (after three years lol) and sounds awesome on the recording. He also finished vocals. No "pitches" last night, just James and I yelling "again" from the "control room" and Devin saying that he was the creepy guy in the corner. Lol.

Check out my new shoes!

I got some Vibrams today and they are awesome! It feels like wearing gloves on your feet. They're really comfortable. I can't wait to try working out in them.
