UM, FREE YEASAYER SHOW?!

May 10, 2010

Wow, so, my weekend kicked ass. Friday night (as I noted) was the Twelves/Grum shindig, which, despite a number of gripes I have with Mighty as a venue, was a good dancey time with many awesome favorite tracks shelled out from both. Man, the Twelves especially know how to bring the party. They busted out many of their best remixes as well as a bunch of unofficial mixes of other favorite tracks by dear favorites like Gossip and Phoenix. ❤

But, the real WTFOMGAWESOME came on Saturday night. Get this: Free Yeasayer show. FURRRREEEEALS. As if that wasn’t cool enough, there was FREE DRINX (wtf?! I feel like this is a mythical occurrence, haha) and free shirts! And a sweet poster.

It was sort of a secret show promoted through the BlastHaus website. You had to sign up for their text list, email to get the tickets, and then wait for the evening of to receive the venue details via text. It was all kind of fun and exciting! I guess it was a promo event for this Kin phone that they seem to be promoting very aggressively now, but whatever.. if it means I get to see Yeasayer AND get free booze, Kin me up! 😀

It ended up being at this weird and random, but mad awesome venue called the Longshoremen’s Hall in the Marina. They said the venue cap was 500 ppl, and I’m sure that many showed up. I’m sooo glad we got in, cause this was mad dope!

Haha, I just feel like my Yeasayer love won’t stop growing. They are so delightful and sound sososo good live. They did a similar but slightly different set from their Coach performance, and again I enjoyed every song. Gahhh, of all the things I love about them (manifold), I think it’s their high harmony vocal bridges in quite a few of the songs… ahhhhh, gets me every time!

Now I’ve really been giving my Odd Blood LP a workout on the ol’ turny. 😉

GRUM

November 23, 2009

grumGRUM has steadily become one of those remixers I always know will bring the goods. He’s now starting to release original solo material which sounds pretty promising. Peep this amazin video for the already oft-remixed “Heartbeats”:

Almost all of the remixes I’ve yet heard have also been great. Check out hypem.com and type in “Grum Heartbeats” to check out a whole bunch of them. There are also a ton posted on his website, here.

Here’s a couple of my favorite Grum remixes for your listening pleasure. The Friendly Fires one has definitely been high on my list of remix faves for quite some time now, and I snagged these other two more recently and have been loving them big time.

Friendly Fires – Skeleton Boy (Grum remix)

Break Chops – Moulinex (Grum remix)

Nightdrive with You – Anoraak (Grum remix)

Incidentally, the entire Anoraak remix EP for “Nightdrive with You” is fantastic. Check it out! I also just discovered that Anoraak has a regular mini-album called the same thing… definitely bears further investigation.
