Noble Savage - The newest project from Raymund... →
After The Effective Dose ended, I entered quite determinedly into the business side of music. Inevitably, I felt a yearning, something missing from my life. Cue Noble Savage; a collection of virtuoso musicians, featuring a rotating cast of members who all strive for the same thing: To funk your faces off with every note played! All out music is free for download, High-Quality, and DRM free! Stand...
Came across this on Lauren Metter’s blog. MIND BLOWING.
This city…oh, this city. I’m officially in love with Los Angeles. Oh, and I also officially want nothing to do with the majority of the people here. My first interaction involved grabbing a snack in the airport after getting off the plane. I’ve never had anyone, let alone a Burger King employee look down their nose at me quite like this. It felt like a surreal parody of a...
Lights, Linux and Macbooks
As of late, I’ve been learning/running lights at a local venue. Exciting stuff for a technophile like myself! New Found Glory, Sum 41, Soulive, Caspa, Badfish, Motion City Soundtrack - all in a period of around four months.

Creep (Radiohead) Cover, ft. my sister, Monica... →
I’ve been a fan of The Dirty Projectors for years now. David Longstreth manages to capture his own unique rhythms, along with a driving beat that allows the harmonies of Amber Hoffman and Angel Deradoorian to blow the listener away! Add to that a fantastic arrangement and production style, and I’m sold. Their ability to both replicate and surpass their studio work within the live...
New York, I love you...

The State of The Music Industry (The Oatmeal) →
The Oatmeal very adeptly summarizes the past, present, and necessary future of the music industry.
Independent Promotion Can Work, If We Let It
Not too long ago, the ability to successfully promote a show existed in the hands of the ad outlets. Newspapers, television, radio; there was no way to compete if one didn’t have a direct line to the heart of the media conglomerates. This meant corporate promoters had a huge advantage; Corporations can track trending acts by ticket sales, easily book touring routes and, above all,...
New Orleans: A city of contrast
Here lies New Orleans, a broken pile of bones, ready to be remade into any image which pleases the twisted doctors who roam its streets. Within its limbs lie the used, the broken, the hopeless, the malformed, the diseased, the wretched, all twitching madly to a macabre parody of carnival music; yet, alongside reside the beautiful, the mysterious, the artistic, the soulful, the inarguably unique,...
