Our official site has been somewhat neglected with updates as most of the minutia is posted on our Facebook page. We just played a couple of of great shows over the weekend with Luminol, Atomic Bride and the Kamikaze Queens. All great bands and super cool folks. If you haven’t checked them out or picked up any of their music, we highly recommend you do. In other show news, we have another show with Luminol upcoming on 4/15 at the Sunset Tavern in Ballard.
Last fall saw the release of or album Let Them Eat Red Velvet Cake, which we self released thanks to our fans funding our Kickstarter campaign. Since Joy and Jamie left the band after the tracking of LTERVC, LBB has been playing shows as a duo in various different configurations. For a while we played shows acoustic with me (Myke) playing foot percussion. While this was interesting and somewhat fun, it just became too much to sing, play harmonica, guitar and foot percussion all at once. We’ve recently been playing shows with backing tracks that I mixed and control with a foot controller on stage. This has been working out well and we’ll probably continue with this setup for a while. Jackie has been playing stylophone on one song at shows and we may incorporate this into more in the future. I’d like to bring back the bells and possibly some organ for future shows.
Jackie’s got a bunch of newer songs that we are going to start work on recording in the next few months. We’re not sure what direction things will take but we figure we’ll just jump in and see where things go. Thanks to everybody who has supported us by buying our CDs and shirts, pledging on our Kickstarter campaign, and coming to our shows.
