Scars at the Tusk, and Scars Tonight

Of course I fucked up and couldn’t find enough time to put my review of the Scars Like These show at the Tusk.
Well here it is:
We got to Wooly Mammoth’s on South St. and let me tell you, it has been awhile since I’ve been to South Street. I forgot it was almost the equivalent of NYC’s 42nd St. in its heyday.
But yea, interesting show. Not as much equipment to bring like last time, which was nice. But we had to go up and down the steps many, many times (The Tusk is upstairs at Wooly Mammoth’s).
The other bands playing seemed heavier and more in the vein of metal – my kinda crowd. Still, not a lot of people but I will tell you the bar setting was really nice, and there were couches around and a decent stage if you want to call it a stage.
Despite the small crowd and the last minute decision of covering “The Cro-Mags – We Gotta Know” again, we got to debut our new song, “S.L.T.”.
The response was great. We got a couple people dancing to it. That made me feel good. Unfortunately, I don’t think any pictures were taken, but there were some video clips filmed that I still haven’t seen yet.

Okay, so tonight marks the 5th show with this band. It’s at RP McMurphy’s on MacDade Blvd, which isn’t far from where I live. It’s a Sunday night, but we’ll see what happens. Its a benefit show we are doing for a friend who will be joining us on stage later in the show. This will be very interesting.

Sorry for the lack of updates, guys. Its been very busy, but after this show there won’t be another one for a while. This will give me time to write more blog entries for the future. I got a lot of movies I want to review.
Keep checking.

SLT May 5 Liberty Show

Hey guys,

Sorry for the lateness on this one. The show was a hell of a time. The place was super dirty but it didn’t matter, we had a killer longer than usual set. My dad made a surprise visit, and I got to hang with some cool peeps that were friends with the band. The Cotton Candy Circus girls and the fire jugglers were amazing and super talented – an excellent addition!
Some footage exists somewhere. But plenty of pics. Check it!

SLT show from last week

Hello my friends,

I wanted to give you guys an update on the latest. If you remember from the last blog entry, I was hyping over the Scars Like These show with our friends Lucid by Midnight at the Rusty Nail on Apr 15.

Well we did the show, and it turned out okay. Due to the Easter weekend, there wasn’t many in the crowd, other than the other bands and some of their friends.  I still managed to meet some cool people, like Leah from Lucid by Midnight, who had been the previous bass player for SLT! Their drummer Mike was also very chill and he helped me out with some drum parts i forgot to bring to the show. I’ll never forget little things like that.

The first 2 bands were very decent, but again hardly any crowd. My bandmate, Psyko Mike described nights like this as “rehearsal night”. That is definitely what it felt like.

We were the third to go on, and from where I was playing at, I couldn’t hear super well. So what I did hear is what I played to. The PA system was fucked and you couldn’t hear the vocals very well.  According to my Uncle Bruce who was in the audience (he did voices in some of my animated movies if you remember) , the guitar amps weren’t as loud as the drums and bass. Oh well, we still played everything in time, and I could tell it was tight despite the sound problems.

The guy Matt who designed the album cover came to see us, and I met him for the first time. He thought we sounded great. He could hear beyond those sound probs haha

But overall, good time. It was another learning experience.  I seriously can’t wait for the next show which is going to be in less than 2 weeks today, on Fri May 5. Will keep you all posted 🙂

If you haven’t heard us already, check out our Facebook and add us !

Till next time !

Updates

It’s been awhile my friends, and I do apologize.

I’ve been very busy with work and the band, and by the time I get to my other side projects I am truly exhausted. What else can I say? I am only human.

In the meanwhile, my 2nd show with Scars Like These is this Saturday, April 15 @ The Rusty Nail in Ardmore. I really look forward to it.
I am still trying to work on my writings, the Terminal Frost demo that never was, and new MoonCandle. It’s hard to juggle all of these.

Keep checking back for more.

First show with Scars Like These

As you all know, my first show with Scars Like These was last Friday, Feb 24. We were one of about 5 bands that opened up for Michale Graves at Bar XIII in Wilmington, DE.
We were the third band to go on, and the first to get the crowd moving. For learning 7 songs in a week, I gotta give myself credit, I really pulled it off. I kept it as simple as I could. Sure, there were some mistakes, but hardly noticeable. This is probably the largest crowd I’ve performed in front of — approximately 150 people in and out of the bar.
After we played, we got to meet Michale Graves himself, and he told us we rocked. I received a lot of compliments as well for my drumming.

There were some videos filmed on smartphones from friends of ours, but unfortunately you can only see the videos on Facebook if you’re on a “tagged friends”. Oh well. Add me if you can — Dave Debauchery Facebook Page
So all in all, it was a great night, and I look forward to the next band practice which is today!
I’ll let you know what happens next 🙂

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!

Hey everyone,
I have a big announcement to make. This morning, I got a call and found out that I am now officially the drummer for the band SCARS LIKE THESE!
There is a lot to the story before all that even happened.
This last week had to be the craziest week I’ve had in a long time. Besides the overtime hours at the regular job, I was looking for a bassist to see if Terminal Frost could get back together. This guy hit me up, and he sounded like he really wanted to be in a serious band. So I talked to Ryan and he wanted to see if we could set up a jam session for the guy. While that was going, I got a message from Tommy Scars from the band Scars Like These. We opened up for them when we had that show back in October (as you can see below).

They fired their drummer, and then they had a fill-in drummer. The fill-in couldn’t make it to the shows they had coming up. Me being without an official band other than fun-at-home stuff like MoonCandle, I decided to take him up on the audition.

Last night, I auditioned for them, and I caught on pretty quick to the songs I remembered in my head. Keep in mind I only started listening to their setlist THAT day. Of course, I wasn’t on point entirely, but close enough that they liked my style.
Today I found out, and I am extremely excited. They may not be metal, but they are a Hard Rock band that clearly influenced by old school Punk and early Heavy Metal. Its going to be great because they are a serious band that does play shows, and they play a lot. This is what I’ve needed for a long time.
Being busy with this new band, I still hope to update this blog, but it won’t be easy. I still have a lot of writings to put up here, too.
So keep checking back, it’s gonna get interesting !

Not the greatest start to the new year

My friends,
Sorry I have not been able to update this regularly like I had preferred. Sadly, the year hasn’t gotten off to a great start for me.
First off, my band Terminal Frost is technically on hiatus. Ryan and I talked and agreed that the rent at the jam spot has been costly, and without a bass player to split with us we simply cannot continue to be unproductive.
I moved my drum set out of there. Now it is currently in a basement. I am officially without a band at the moment except I am trying to work on new MoonCandle and my debut solo album of Dave Debauchery.  My microphone isn’t sounding good on my new computer. It sounded perfect on the old one, but for my Windows 10 not so much.
So I bought a new microphone. Unfortunately I am missing a splitter cable to put it into the new computer. Weird, the microphone didn’t even come with the cable, it’s just “assumed” I already have one. Gotta love it.
All this nonsense is going on and I still continue to procrastinate. For that I am sorry.
I had good plans for this blog and they will still continue as long as I have the time. This blog isn’t just for my music updates, its also for my writings.
There were other things that were personal going on in January that I won’t get into. I will try my best to be more productive on this page.
