weekend curfew


Curfew Update 02/19/2009

Blast of newish stuff right here right now. As mentioned in the last post, both acoustic and full band versions of Parachute VA’s new track, “She Is Love” is now available on iTunes.  Thursday’s new album came out earlier this week. Their latest effort is entitled “Common Existence.” Meanwhile, earlier this month Two Tongues released their long awaited self-titled album. Two Tongues is band founded by Max Bemis of Say Anything and Chris Conley of Saves the Day. From start to finish, this is a great album and I especially have high praise for its first track, “Crawl.”

Michael Gergory has teamed up again with Barely Political, this time starring in a video with Obama Girl for his song “Obama Girl Stimulus Song.” Check out his YouTube channel here, and check out the video below:

Curfew Update 10/22/08

First things first, the awesome guys in Charlottesville’s Tim Be Told are playing at Ebenezer’s Coffee House in Washington, DC. They’ll be playing with Zelos this Friday, Oct 24 from 7:30 to 9:30pm. The band, fronted by Tim Ouyang (vocals/keys) and rounded out by Luan Nguyen (guitar/vocals), Andrew Chae (guitar), Jim Barredo (drums) and Parker Stanley (bass), was recently picked up by Black Water Management and has a new album in the works. You can listen to their older recordings on their website and their myspace. I saw them play at DC9 in September, and boy their sound has matured over the past year. I also helped them film their award-winning music video for song, “Gravity’s Hold” during the summer. It’s directed by my friend Gretel Troung. Check out their show Friday night, check out their band blog, and check out the video:

In further update news, I’ll be gone for the next two weeks and wanted to bring everyone up to date on what shows will be coming up in the DC area.
