Greetings from the road. We’ve been on tour with Jerad Finck for the past week, completing five shows in seven days. He has a show on Wednesday at Genghis Cohen in Los Angeles before heading down to Lestat’s in San Diego for a show on Saturday. After that we head back for a final tour show at the Ole Beck VFW Post in Missoula, Montana on November 2.
GAYLE SKIDMORE NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT
Former San Diego indie musician Gayle Skidmore, now living in the Netherlands, has created an amazing lyric video for her song, “No Ordinary Life,” which is an entry into the Little Women competition. She is currently in first place and needs your help to stay there. Please check out the video and vote for her once a day before the competition ends on October 29.
MEDIA OUTLET DAMAGED IN FIRES NEEDS YOUR HELP
Music Junkie Press, a great rock and roll online site based in Santa Rosa, was burned to the ground in the Tubs fire. They lost everything – offices, computers, their home, a collection of 70 vintage guitars and over 100 classic drumheads, all their photo equipment, their antique camera collection and all their paper records, including 40 years of rock memorabilia. They are still reporting on rock concerts and posting photos from shows online, although they are living in a motel room and using borrowed equipment. They could use some help in rebuilding. Check out the GoFundMe campaign set up by bands for them.
Check out the new single from Late Night Episode, “Golden Age.” If you live in Los Angeles, they will be having a show at The Peppermint Club on October 26. We think you should definitely check them out.
Check out this amazing electronic pop song from Swedish duo Felin, “21st Century.” This should get you up and ready for a new week.
Last but not least this week, here is TYA with their new single, “Hustle.” This is another upbeat song that will get your toes a tapping and propel you into another work week. Let us know what you think.
NEW MUSIC VIDEOS
Here is an amazing blues video from icon Matt Hawkins, combining great steel with some amazing native instruments including didgeridoo and wood flute. The cinematography is breathtaking. We think this one is a winner.
Electro pop seems to be the theme of the day. Check out “Sky Wide Open” from TRISTN, as well as an acoustic video for her latest single, “Nothing to Say.” Get up and dance!
Our final video today comes from Oh Geronimo. Another cinematic masterpiece, and the song is pretty awesome too. Check out “No More Stones.”
