Yay for four hours of sleep, gah. It’s 9am and I am sitting at the River Cree Casino / Marriott Hotel in west Edmonton running an Exhibitor Booth at an event, it’s pretty exciting. Just waiting for the day to be over so I can go pick up the guys and head to our jam space and rehearse. Speaking of rehearsing, I guess I should mention that rehearsing for the new EP has been coming along very nicely.
After getting our space a couple weeks ago I spent a few days hauling all of our gear out to Leduc (where the rehearsal space is at). I got the drums, bass, guitar amps, PA and all that stuff set up and running, even went to the local music store called The Turner Guitar Studio in Leduc and bought an extra mic stand. We’ve had a few rehearsals already and it’s nice and loud, ear plugs are much needed… we all imagine the neighbours don’t like us too much right now, ha. So next were making the space much more band friendly, posters of Hendrix, Cobain, and the likes will be plastered on the wall.
In the next week or two here I think I am going to buy myself a new laptop, that way I can take my mammoth computer to the rehearsal space and use it for what it’s meant to be, a ministudio for pre-production recording. We also have a $3,000 Yamaha Keyboard that we are going to haul down there, it’s a great keyboard for midi interface as it has as many keys as a baby grand! It’s wonderful to finally have the space to accommodate our musical creativity. At this rate we’ll be hammering out a new song every week.
I’m crazy excited for when we will finally get to share all of our new shit, it’s gonna be incredible!
All in good time.
