Hey did you know Someday lounge streams all of their shows live?


Me and Maria Jett and Adam Steinfink are up stairs camped out. Each of us on our own black leather couch. Adam is taking a nap (he's going to the studio to practice with Brandon at midnight). Maria is ordering books and CD's from a stack of catalogs. Me? I'm blogging while watching live art.

John Clayton Something The 3rd is drawing on his computer and it's projected on a screen on the back of the stage and Myrrh Larsen is playing guitar and singing along to the drawings. With the drawings?

Gorgeous and delightful Gabriel Darling is wearing a pleather baby doll dress! And she just bummed a smoke from me... she's up to something!

Two guys just gave me their cards so they get a shout out

Ben from ANALOG ABUSE and ONEWORD (i think he said he's a dj)

now Michael Pan is playing the IMPERIAL MARCH from Star Warz... nice! oh wait now he's playing the saxophone... shit. i don't knows any of these guys names... um. they better get upstairs and introduce themselves

Soda Jerks!

Moxie's has a lot of pop and rock! But moxie? Well no. they have stacks of soda and then a bunch of people standing around listening to music.

I guess you can't sell moxie.

Andreah and walked up to the front of the soda pop shoppe and there was a crowd gathered around a guy with really big feet who wasn't wearing any shoes and an acoustic guitar.

We both mused that this guy was probablly from the arts highschool up the street and these were all this friends. We were wrong. He's from Phoenix. His name is Kelly and he just happened to be there. So he asked for and was granted permission to play his crappy indie music for everyone!

people were clapping for him even though he was doing 1 minutes covers of songs that I believe I recognized last night but now do not remember.

here is a picture of him and his 2 friends;

The guy on the right is Kelly! When I told him the name of my blog he said "yeah I do play crappy indie music!" And that is why he gets the shout out because he is at his core crappy indie music all the way BUT he is not full of shit! Yay!

We're From Japan! did infact play but I only got sucked into actually listening to them for about 3 epic songs. Of course they were great but this isn't a reveiw of their show. But here's a picture of them that they DID NOT POSE for and yes it was taken in my signature shaky style.

And for anyone that cares I got the email address of the guy who put the show together (HINT HINT).

I am not trying to push my political views on those of you who keep up with Crappy Indie music...

I just thought y'all would be interested in the day to day life of Ben Meyercord.
