…Wine Styles, Vacaville, CA

Friday, February 27th, 2009

Through the wine-spills and cheese-stains, we’ll be playing a fortified, amplified, award-winning set.  We apologize from the bottom of our crooked hearts for the impromptu notice.  See our Upcoming Shows section for more info.

Lime Colony, CA 95688

Play bass with us?

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

Dear Subscribers and Website Readers,

Lime Colony is looking for a kick-butt bass player (upright or electric, preferably both) willing to add  a bit of low-end to our recordings and occasional live performances.  After some great live shows and numerous open mic appearances (namely at the Hotel Utah), we’re now in the middle of recording an LP’s worth of new music (approximately) to be self-released.  We usually get together about once a week (Thurs or Sat nights) in the city. If you love music, and are good at playing it on a bass, then we’d love to hear from you.

To summarize what we’re looking for:
- a talented bass player and musician
- upright or electric or both, preferably
- music-lover
- easy-going
- sense of humor doesn’t hurt
- ability to sing back-up vocals a plus

To further summarize what you should and should not expect, please see below.

What you should expect:
- a friendly environment
- fairly informal but focused rehearsals and recording sessions, when schedules line up
- jokes (usually bad/not-funny)
- open-minded and good-humored bandmates
- to play semi-folk-inspired music, that is sometimes quiet, but sometimes tries to rock pretty hard

What you should NOT expect:
- pay
- a strict or frequent practice/rehearsal/recording schedule (see first paragraph)
- many, many gigs every month
- scary monsters
- fame

Love,

Lime Colony

Just to prove we’ve actually been recording songs.

For everyone who visits limecolony.com, and even for those who don’t: we have posted a brand new, never before heard in public, song.  We’re calling it ”Houdini,” and you can listen to it at our Myspace page, or our Facebook page.  This song was written and performed by Earl K., engineered by Tim G., and features Siv Lie on violin, and it will appear on our upcoming full-length, which will be available later this year.

Please click on over and give it a listen.  We hope you like it.

See you soon,

Lime Colony

Attention Facebookers!

As things go, we love you all very much.  We are still working on the cd (omgomgomg) and are going to start showing our faces in public a bit more.  

Anyway, we’ve got this facebook page (it’s linked to over on the right, but here it is again).  We would like you all to become fans.  While we cannot make you, of course, we can blackmail you.  You know, about that one thing.  Right?  Besides, President Obama says it’s your patriotic duty.  Also, he says, “Buy your own damn fries.” 

God bless you.  And God Bless The United States Of America.

Here’s a nice fan-created image (from here).  Hopefully the Associated Press doesn’t get angry and sue us. :(
