Artist Promotion [17 Dec 2006|03:16pm]

Hi guys. I'm new here, but I wanted to put in a good word for Andi Starr. She is an amazing musician, not to mention one of the kindest and most "real" people I've ever known! Her style is fairly eclectic, but probably best described as ethereal rock. Her voice and music are quite unique, though it has been described as "hauntingly beautiful", and at times compared to Tori Amos, Shawn Colvin, The Cowboy Junkies, and The Cranberries. She just released her 4th album, "Leaving the White Line", which is currently available at CD Baby. For those in the Portland, Oregon area, there is a CD release party coming up on Januray 26th. It's $10 in advance or $12 at the door, with the album included in the price of entry, and cellist Adam Hurst opening the show. Please, do yourself a favor and listen to the amazingly beautiful music of Andi Starr, which will touch your soul and open your heart.

Hello! I'm new to LiveJournal and am looking to meet people who are interested in ambient, trip-hop, and sonic music and it looks like I might have! I'm from the Detroit, MI area. We did have a radio station that played this music on a show called Big Sonic Heaven, only the station had been converted to a teen-pop format and dies real quick. Ever listen to Auralgasms online?

Hey all!! Just popping in to say that I've been listening to my Beauty's Confusion CD for the past week or so and it is just SPECTACULAR!!!!! It's my perfect ideal of what a trip-hop album should be: the perfect marriage of loping, discordant breakbeats and electronic discordia, all of it tamed by a woman's sometimes haunting, often enchanting, and always dreamy vocals that ride the downtempo with absolute skill and grace, a beacon that you can feel pierce you to the very core and beyond when you close your eyes. Breathe In is a work of art, and I sincererly hope it isn't the last one; even if producing another album took years to perfect, I'd still think it was worth the wait. =)

Hey all, this is Skip (aka Moxx) from Beauty's Confusion.... just wanted to let everyone know that my band's CD is finally available for pre-ordering. The release date is September 14th. It is called "Breathe In" and features 13 tracks. It is only $10, and you get 5 free stickers AND our original EP free when you buy the full-length.

Hope all of you are doing well. If any of you guys or girls are into Portishead, Sneaker Pimps, Hooverphonic, Statik Sound System, Artefact or Puracane, you might dig our music (I'm guessing a lot of you dig our music because you are members of this community).... there are soundclips and free full-song downloads available at our website.

hey people, how's it goin?
Last year around this time one of my turntables got stolen. I'm about to get a new one for christmas, but I haven't really been paying attention to my record collection.
...all my tracks are at least a year old and that just won't work. www.groovetech.com doesn't work anymore and I want to go record shopping
Any suggestions?

I like progressive house.

show this Saturday! [11 Sep 2003|12:55am]

johnhughes
Hi everyone. This is Skip from Beauty's Confusion. Just wanted to let everyone know that Jenna and I are doing a mellow/acoustic/semi-electronic show at the Sweet Bean Cafe (Sam's Plaza in Ft. Myers-- across from Page Field) this Saturday... it's all ages, tickets are $8 (or $8 at the door, day of show), and the show starts about 8pm. Also playing are Glenn Kidd, and the Coffeepots. We're playing last. Hope all of you can make it. We're going to shoot some video of the show, just for fun... should be a great show. It's a cool, intimate place to play... one of the better venues (and basically one of the only) in Ft. Myers.

We are also doing a full show (with Joel) at CD Warehouse in Ft. Myers, on Sunday night September 21st. Show starts around 7pm, and a great Gainesville band Daughters Of The Revolution will be playing also. I'm pretty sure we are the only two bands, but there could be another one added last minute. That show is also all ages, and $3.00.

Have a great week everyone!

show tonight! [08 Aug 2003|11:07am]

johnhughes
Hey people. We're playing the Liquid Cafe, downtown Ft. Myers tonight... it is our last show for a while, because Joel's going back to school... please try to come out. We're doing something a little different musically tonight, and we are also filming some footage for a video we're working on. The show will either be free, or a minimal door charge. Should be all ages (most Liquid shows are), but we are not sure... if you guys are wondering about that, call the place and they should be able to let you know. We hope to see you guys and girls out there tonight. Thanks!

never lose your will to confront [22 Jun 2003|09:37am]

[ mood | high ]

Those words were spoken by Henry Rollins right before he launched into "Jealous Again." The show was at the Vic Theatre and it was the most intense show I've ever seen! Here's Rollins singing the songs of Black Flag live and in my face! Black Flag, people! One of my absolute favorite bands ever!
Rollins--A guy I've had a crush on for the past 20 years! Big muscle men don't usually turn my head, but this guy has not only turned my head, he has gotten right into it. No one has helped me get through the trauma of my teenage and early adult years like he has--and still is.
I've been in a real pissy mood for the last few days. Most of it has been work-related, but I was also just getting sick and tired of people talking shit, thinking I'm a freak, making me out to be some kind of huge fuckup when I'm actually just a small fuckup.
That all disappeared as soon as Keith Morris, Black Flag's original singer and leader of another great punk band, the Circle Jerks, hit the stage and started screaming, "I'm about to have a nervous breakdown/My head really hurts/If I don't find some way out of this/I'm gonna go beserk." Yeah! I can so relate!
That's why I loved Black Flag, throughout its rotating lineup. Their songs eloquently and simply spelled out my personal discontent. This show was a total wet dream for me! Keith sounds as awesome as ever, though the guy is looking a bit rough in his old age. Heavy bags under his eyes, lines on his face, small bald spot on the back of his head. I almost didn't recognize him. He's was also sporting long-ass dreads.
I was up front at the barricades, jumping up and down and whipping the people around me with my long hair. As Keith blazed through "I've Had It," Depression," "Fix Me," "Gimme Gimme Gimme," "Wasted" and about half a dozen others, everyone sang along, not missing a beat. It was wild!
There was no moshing, everyone was pogoing, engaging in some fist-banging mania and singing. At certain points, I couldn't hear Keith at all, just the audience singing. After Keith's set and some talk about the West Memphis Three case, which is what the proceeds from the show are going to benefit, Rollins came out, not in his usual half-naked state, but wearing a black T-shirt and black jeans. The band, which featured Chuck Dukowski on a bunch of tunes, were all similarly attired.
Rollins picked up where Keith left off, starting the set with "Rise Above," the first song on the first album that featured Rollins as Black Flag's latest singer. The whole crowd surged toward Henry's animal magnetism.
That's when the moshing broke out, but this was one of the easiest crowds I've ever had to deal with. At one point, I was crushed up against the barricades and this girl behind me said, "I can't move back. It's not my fault I'm crushing you."
I said, "Then you'll understand why I'm about to do this." I planted my feet flat against the metal mesh, like I was going to climb up it, and used them to push my whole body, along with the suffocating crowd, back. That was my only scary moment.
Rollins ran through a lengthy history. Almost every album was touched on, though most of the songs came from "Damaged," which is their best album, in my opinion. Rollins, soaked and spitting, crouched in his widespread stance, dropped bomb after musical bomb. "Clocked In," "Room 13," "TV Party," "Police Story," "Black Coffee," "My War."
He also threw out some lovely pearls. "Last night, we played Detroit and they were so drunk, they were so arrestable, they were so easy to kill. That's why you get a dumb person for president, that's why you get dumb people for cops, cuz you make yourselves so easy to kill. Not me, I'm too fast. I'm too smart. I'm too strong. They're not gonna kill me. Not easily." Me neither, I vowed, me neither.
For an encore, he and the rest of the band went into dynamite cover band territory and did four songs from the Ramones: "Sheena Is A Punk Rocker," "Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment," "Time Bomb" and "Rockaway Beach." If you thought the crowd was going crazy before, they totally went apeshit over the Ramones tunes.
It was bizarre to hear Henry sing, (yes, I said sing!) some of America's best modern pop tunes. At the end of the show, Jason, the bassist, held out the set list toward the audience. I immediately jumped up and grabbed it. The girl who was crushing me earlier said, "Hey! He was going to give that to me!" Riiight. Sorry, sugar, I'm too fast, too smart, too strong

two shows coming up [15 Jun 2003|01:30am]

johnhughes
Hey party people.... just wanted to let you know we're playing two shows in the next two weeks and here are the details.....

June 22nd, Sunday night
CD Warehouse in Naples
ALL AGES, $6.00
playing with:
Dark Skies Have Fallen, John D'Zurilla, and The Anchorite Four

June 25th, Wednesday night
Eddie Fishbowl's, downtown Ft. Myers, right by Peter's
21+ show, NO COVER
playing with:
Blinded By Saturn

The June 22nd show will more than likely be an acoustic/minimalist show... we no longer have our own sound system, but we'll be there.. it just might sound a lot different than you may be used to. :)

The June 25th show, will be a full show.. with drums and loud guitars and you name it.

Hope to see some or all of you there (at either show).

Take care,
Skip / Beauty's Confusion

4.11.03 show with the Thermals (Sub Pop Records) and Set Trigger [13 Apr 2003|02:31pm]

johnhughes
What a great night this was. Jordan Hudson from The Operacycle and Thermals (an old friend of mine, formerly from Cape Coral, FL now Portland), had emailed me out of the blue asking if while they were on tour, they could play an all ages show and if I could set it up. So I did, at the record store I work at. Turned out to be a really kick-ass show. Ben from Kind Of Like Spitting (the singer) was their touring guitarist, and what a nice guy he was, too. I hooked him and Jordan up with our EP, hope they like it. Had a few technical difficulties during our set but that's expected when there's a lot of electronic thingys going on. Crowd responded exceptionally well, and there was a really good turnout. I stayed outside during Set Trigger because someone in the band (I think the bassist), gave me attitude when I was trying to move my gear so they could set up. So I was like well, I'm staying outside with my girl. They sounded ok from the parking lot but who knows. So then the Thermals went on and kicked serious, serious ass. Todd got it all on video, and I did a light show with the store lights the entire time... it was fun as hell. It was great seeing and talking to Jordan after the show, catching up being as we haven't seen each other for 7 or 8 years. He's still as cool as he ever was: one of the nicest and most genuine people I've come across in my life. He hooked me, Carson and Todd up with the first Operacycle CD (his solo instrumental music), gorgeous album. Gorgeous. All in all, a really great show. It will live in my memory forever. It was that good. Sometimes Ft. Myers pulls through and actually has a great show. It's not often, but it does happen, and Friday night was proof of that. I'm proud as hell that the show turned out so well to begin with, because that was basically the first time I ever booked a show in my life. Awesome. The Thermals rule. Now everyone go out and buy their debut "More Parts Per Million" CD on Sub Pop Records. And while you're at it, buy my band's EP, too. :)
