Well, the spell of writer's block has passed. This is The Hangover Brigade's first new song in a year.
After having a conversation about needing people whom you can depend on to get you out of situations--be it a conversation at a party, or a bad spot in your life--I wrote this love song called Exit Strategy. It's about wanting to be someone's everything. To be whatever they need, even if it is just an exit strategy.
Yesterday marks the first bit of press that The Hangover Brigade has had! I was interviewed by Autostraddle in their music segment called "Almost Famous." The article talks about everything from bunnies, to dubstep, to my future autobiography, Two Hats, No Pants.
Last night we played The Hotel Utah Saloon for the first time ever. We played to a great and rowdy crowd. It was our first time playing with our new bassist, Joe Hickey, and I have to say -- Joe is what the band has been missing. All the songs now have the weight and grit that they deserve. I love this band so much; it's such a riot getting to play for all of you. Thanks for everyone who come out, sing-along, scream, even amicably heckle us. We adore it.
We played a new cover, too! Alex Clare's dub-step version of "Too Close". Joe Hickey got to kill it on beatbox. Who says an indie folk-rock band can't cross over into electronica?
We'll be back at The Hotel Utah on Friday, April 19th for what is going to be a truely fantastic night. We're going to be playing with Blisses B, Dad's LPs and Cassandra Farrar and the Left Brains -- the same group of bands we played with at my CD release party at Cafe du Nord last May. I can't wait to get everyone back together. Get drunk with us on the 19th, so you can cure your hangover with the proper 4-20 techniques.
Come hang out with us at our next show on February 28th at 50 Mason Social House!
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
