Video: Full Show of Mineral 1997 Farewell Tour

I’ve been meaning to get around to convert this VHS-C of an entire show I filmed of Texas band Mineral’s farewell tour in 1997. It seemed fitting as the band is getting back together for a 25th anniversary celebration next week January 2019 for a string of shows across the country as well as new material. Very exciting!!!!!

Select Tour Dates:
01-09 Miami, FL – The Ground At Space
01-10 Orlando, FL – The Social
01-11 Tampa, FL – The Orpheum
01-12 Atlanta, GA – The Masquerade

01-17 Washington, DC – The Black Cat

A complete list of shows is at Mineral’s webpage.

Here it is finally! Thanks for your patience!

The original Kick Bright Zine show review here. The lineup for the show was Mineral, Jejune, The Get Up Kids, Peterbuilt and a bunch of other bands I missed. This show was my introduction to Jejune, whom I would love forever 🙂 Please enjoy!

Orlando band Courtneys Live Show Added to Bandcamp

Jeffrey and Kristin Howard (Hot Hands) were rhythm section a band with two gals named Courtney (Courtney Rackley and Courtney Matzke, respectively) called Courtneys for a bit from 2005-2007. We went on tour during the summer of 2006 with one of our most favorite bands ever Doris Delay. When we weren’t toting around guns and chainsaws in our blood splattered outfits in public we recorded just about everything on our tape recorder.

This show uploaded to Bandcamp is a show we played in Valdosta, GA at the famous Rock and Roll Pizza (RIP). This was a particularly fun and crazy show with both Courtneys in top form doing what they do best – being themselves.

Rabbitfoot Records Brings Back Vinyl Cutting Service

recordplayer

Making and receiving mix tapes is cool. It’s not a lost art if you know the right person. What if I told you could make a mix tape but instead of it being on cassette but have it cut straight to vinyl? You can right here in Central Florida!

One cool thing about Central Florida is we have Rabbitfoot Records in Sanford that can press small run vinyl records. When I mean small I mean like 1 or 2 copies though I have heard they can do up to 50. All you have to do is bring them a CD or cassette or whatever and they can cut it to vinyl with their special record press.

They stopped about two years ago but have brought back this special service in January 2016. They’d make great gifts or if you DJ you can make a vinyl mix of music you only have digitally. The possibilities are almost limitless.

Rabbitfoot Records is located in Sanford at 307 E 2nd Street Sanford, FL 32771. You can get price quotes at robertw2010@hotmail.com.

New video from Savoy Motel.

Savoy Motel have released a new video for their song “Hot One”. The new band from Nashville features members from Heavy Cream and Cheap Time. The band grew from a collaboration of Jeffrey Novak (Cheap Time) and Jessica McFarland (Heavy Cream) along with Mimi Galbierz , who is one of my personal favorite current rock guitarists, and Dillon Watson (also from Heavy Cream). That’s definitely the makings of an interesting band. Their debut record will be out this year. This song is a cool indication into what is to come.
