Holy cow, it worked! I thought it would be tricky raising $1,500 in under a month but like Wayne Gretzky said, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take”. Indeed, fortune favors the bold.
So, you the contributor/supporter/believer/facilitator of this fine new record shall be happy to know that we are now putting together the final touches on the CDs and t-shirts. I don’t have an official release date for the EP yet; still tackling one item at a time on this release. We are now in the second phase, which is all the back-and-forth dialogue between myself and the outstanding visual artists (Adam LaMonaca, Castle, Dr. Quandary) who are chipping in on the tangible and digital goods. We’ll also be dropping the video for “Black Cherry” in mid-August courtesy of the guys at 5846 Films (the crew behind the 5 O’Clock Shadowboxers “No Resolution 2” video) then shooting the video for “Full Spectrum” at a pinball museum on SUPER 8 FILM (THANK YOU!) in Asbury Park, NJ.
We’ll be having the official “Nights & Weekends” release party in September here in Philly at World Cafe Live during Kuf Knotz’s Boom Box Collective shows. And a video for the last song off the EP, a D’Angelo cover, probably around that time as well.
Anyway, I gotta buckle down and hammer out these scripts and blow the dust off my Stetson. Thank you once again for making this process unbelieveably prosperous!
