StageQ is in the midst of prepping for the Christmas spirit, and auditions for Christmas with the Crawfords is right around the corner. Well, specifically September 8th & 9th with callbacks on the 10th. I sadly know next to nothing of this (there’s a trend here), but the idea of watching a story set in Hollywood’s “Golden Era” with actors in drag just makes me smile. Interested persons should prepare and bring music to sing, because CwtC is a musical as well, and dang does that make me happy. The show will run December 5th – 20th, so be prepared for a viewing. Christmas takes a lot out of us, after all, and it goes down easier with a bit of comedy.
Chiptunes = WIN is at it again. Continuing to bring you the best of Chiptune in vast quantities of awesome with Volume 3. Mmmm hmmm! Makes me wish I still had use of my computer so I could listen in at leisure. MMMM HMMM!!! But enough sulking, because this is time for celebration. Volume 3 is dropping tomorrow, and it’s a damn good deal to jump in to appreciate the efforts of the fine artists in the compilation. Come with me and hype over the info already released to the world, then get the album the next day!…I’ll pass on that for now. Moneys and means of play stop me for now, but certainly can’t stop me from being excited. EXCITED, you hear!? But really, damn glad to know ChipWIN is still going strong. May it’s rainbow continue to shine for awhile. Continue reading
Haven’t been on the ball about things at all, but this thing right here? No one to blame but those in marketing, because I would jump on this the moment I knew about it…which was the past 24 hours, and it’s less than 24 hours the event should start. Y U NO TELL FANS!? *sigh* Not that I could afford Glass Nickel Pizza, but that’s beside the point. Living recordings of 10 Minutes About Your Favorite Movie? I’m down with that, given that every episode of that podcast is gold…well, except the one about Planet of the Apes (series of film, wasn’t specified), if I’m to believe what was said on another Little Podcast…podcast. Think it was Running With Scissors. But again, beside the point. Movies and pizza go together, and while it might not be an actual movie being watched, talking about them leads is an endless opportunity of fun. Hoping it gets the crowd it deserves.
Music is always happening at the High Noon Saloon. And come this Thursday, August 14, the musical acts of CHANTS, Midas Bison, Annabel Lee, and Joey Broyles are coming round. Recently had an update as to how Joey rocks it in the now, finally saw Annabel during the pride shenanigans this past weekend, but I’ve yet to know the wonder of Chants and Midas. Someday when money and time permits! For now, consider the venture, and let me know how glorious it all was, alright? Need to tease the need.
August 5th, 2014. Across the world, the Internet, and in your minds. That is the release date of Future Pop Revolution, the first official album Joey Broyles will be released. This album (or intended to be released versions of it) has been delayed for about as long as Joey has been promoting it…which feels like forever! Which is why I’m damn glad to see this coming about. To appreciate the music that’s about to be released, how about pre-gaming with Joey’s SoundCloud, ReverbNation, Broadjam, or wherever his music can be found. The Revolution is almost upon us.
UPDATE: Apparently there is yet another delay. The album will now be released on September 2nd. Deep breathes. The wait will make the release that more intense. And if you need a little more tease, there is still a musical gathering of the intended release held at Funk’s Pub.
Music is a skill that deserves and needs to be taught to the world. Not overly commercialized jargon which is made to sell other products, but music that entertains and makes our mind grow in ways it otherwise couldn’t. Such is the power of sound! So seeing something like Lyre Power makes me smile. It lays claim to being the first and only youth program in Madison to focus on music composition and improvisation with an emphasis on experimentalism. An impressive claim, unless of course they are a lyre…ha. Ha. HA! Continue reading
