Just in from StageIt –

Ack…so so much to do today. This is going to be more like a fly-by than a post but here goes.
The Fender Music Foundation is hosting a benefit concert on StageIT -
the event will take place on Thursday, April 26, between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. Proceeds to The Fender Music Foundation will support the organization’s mission to provide musical instruments to music programs in need across the United States. Both signed and unsigned musicians are invited to participate to receive exposure and prizes (including a year’s supply of Heineken) in appreciation for their support of music education…”
It’s marathon time for WMNF and Ninebullets Radio and that means I am asking y’all to show a little support for the radio show. I am being asked to raise 1600 dollars tomorrow night and I’d love to get a head start on it. So, if you like the music I play, like that there is a show on the air that plays these bands, appreciate the work that goes into getting unreleased songs for the show, appreciate that there is a radio station that let’s someone like me on the air…..whatever the reason. Maybe you’re a band we play on the show or we’ve supported via Kickstarter over the last couple of years….whatever it is….Ninebullets Radio needs your support during this funds drive…”
My name is Cassie Taylor and I’m a 25 year old singer/songwriter/foot stomping/blues women with a post college budget. Yes, I have had extraordinary opportunities to tour around the world, played with first class musicians, I serve on Board of Directors of the Blues Foundation, walked the red carpet in LA, and meet all sorts of wonderful friends and fans in the process. I am a full time, hustlin’ musician but unfortunately that dosn’t always amount to cash flow…”
Okay, running now.
We are back from our holiday trip to Alabama and I may actually finish the unpacking by tomorrow. Yeah me. Anyway, we ate lots of holiday food and saw loads of family. There was porch-swinging and football-watching. The rumors that Dad-in-Law and I yelled rude things at LSU when they beat Arkansas are vicious lies. Really. Not that it matters since the only bowl game that means anything ( IRONBOWL!!! ) was played on Saturday and my team WON!!!
We made it home early Sunday morning so I was able to watch the Steve Carlson concert on StageIT later that evening. This is the third stageit show I seen with Steve so I am not exactly unbiased in my review. Even so, it was still awesome. Jonah Dolan joined him for the show and played various drums while Steve played guitar and sang. Steve opened with Pinata Novia, which has slowly become my favorite Steve Carlson song and also played Days Behind from the new-ish album. I wish he would play Break Me but maybe it doesn’t transition well to acoustic.
There was some discussion in the chat stream about his shirt being mostly unbuttoned until everyone remembered his mom was on chat and then we were all embarrassed to be discussing his chest in front of his mom. He would never have known except Danneel Harris told on us and he hurridly buttoned a couple of buttons and after a few sighs the chat swung back to discussing music.
He did a great job covering Clapton’s Wonderful Tonight and then I am embarrassed to say I don’t even know what the last song played was because Jonah moved to play the keyboard, Steve picked up his mandolin and Jensen Ackles pulled up a chair behind them and joined in on guitar and MY BRAIN BROKE. I was pretty much worthless after that.
So basically the concert was awesome and once again I wonder why can’t Steve stand in my sunroom and play guitar all day?
I went to another StageIT concert last night. I hadn’t planned to see another show so soon but the link to a vid by The White Buffalo came across my twitter feed and while the video was okay the sound was just amazing. Jake Smith has this gorgeous, powerful voice and I was so impressed I popped over to stageit and bought my ticket as soon as the video ended.
Jake was set up in a studio so the sound was very clear. This was my first time to hear any of his music and I was just blown away. He opened with Into the Sun and followed with Wrong, which has some great guitar sections. I think the next song was One
Long Lone Night with the poetic line, “dreamin’ wide awake”, followed by a rowdy drinking-type song. Then he played Everynight, Everyday from his upcoming EP and the beautiful Love Song #1 he wrote for his wife.
Yes, you all can pause for a quick “awwww, how sweet” before we move on.
I am not sure what the next two songs were called but they were good. He ended the show with Pilot, which I liked and everyone else went wild over. The show finished up and I just sat there because a) it was an amazing show and b) why didn’t anyone TELL ME about him?
Jake’s new EP, The Lost and Found comes out on December 6th and in the interest of full disclosure I have to mention I WON a signed copy of the new EP after the show!! Once it gets here I will review it for you guys, after you know, I stop dancing around gleefully.
edit: thanks to Penny from Unison Music for the song title correction
So Rockstar Games wants to sell me and all of you a 10″ Max Payne doll…Okay, okay, they call it a statue. It is part of the Max Payne 3 Special Edition release.
We are headed to Alabama this afternoon to spend the week of Thanksgiving with family. For the Eagles fans among you I have mentioned before that Kahuna’s aunt and uncle live on the actual Seven Bridges Road. We will be staying at our old house and hoping the nice weather holds so we don’t freeze while we are there.
Steve Carlson is doing another StageIt concert this Sunday, November 27th. At present the time is 5pm EST so I am not whether I can go or not. It depends on when we get in from the trip. I’ll stick the info in the top box a little later today.
Ninebullets.net premiered the new Have Gun Will Travel video, Thirteen Miles to Empty, on their website a few days ago. So I snagged it. Mergers and Acquisitions is one of about five new releases I am taking with me on the trip.
If Fogo de Chao really wanted me to eat at their restaurant they would build one in Raleigh.
I will get through all the rest of the email and such today and watch the vid Shoreacres from The Task at Hand sent me. After I have another cup of coffee…and pack.
