Lime Colony on TV (or radio or something)

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

Friends!

This next Tuesday, October 30th, the denizens of Lime Colony will appear LIVE on TradioV’s program Lost In Transition.  The plan is to chat with host  Cecilia Castelli and play some tender acoustic musics.  You can watch and listen to it all unfold at tradiov.com/sf at 11:00 am PST.  Who knows, maybe we’ll even break out a song from the new album (currently in the recording phase).

In other (but related, as you’ll see) news, the recording of our next album is well underway.  We’re going to get our musical hands dirty at The Hearing Booth in the coming weeks and will produce for you what we believe will be one of Lime Colony’s three best albums ever.  Stay focused.

With Everlasting Unconditional Love,

Lime Colony, the band

Dear Folks,

Some stuff is going down in Oakland, Calif.  Two things, really.

The first is, Lime Colony will be a musical presence right down the block from the next Oakland Art Murmur First Friday Art Walk (me, I call it OAMFFAW).  What’s happening: the bad boys of Lime Colony will be playing some tunes at the nice new location of Bittersweet Cafe.  It’s right next door to the also-pretty-new Oaklandish store.  It’s a short walk from all the splendid galleries of art that are open during these First Fridays.  And what we’ve been told is, there’s a hamburger truck parked right outside the door.  You go over there, you hear us, you eat a hamburg’, you see some local art.  That is:

live music 7-10PM
Bittersweet Cafe
1438 Broadway
Oakland, CA 94612

The second thing is, a few copies of our Lime Colony album can be found in CD form at 1-2-3-4 GO! Records in Oakland.  We are very pleased to have something on those shelves.  We highly recommend going to their store.  You don’t even have to buy our album.  You probably already have three copies anyway.  (WHO DOESN’T?)  But please actually go there and buy one more.  That is:

1-2-3-4 GO! Records
420 40th Street, Suite #5
Oakland, CA 94609

Thanks for still reading.  See you in Oakland.  We can’t wait.

Yours Sincerely,

Lime Colony

Live At Ex’pression: The Movie

Friday, February 4th, 2011

Friends,

Last month, we helped out the kind folks at Ex’pression College by rocking their ever-loving faces off. The event was video’d and is now on Youtube!

Here’s the link.

Or you can watch it right here.  Thanks everyone! (don’t forget to watch in HD and fullscreen that mother)(also, the link and the video are part of a playlist, so just let it go and it’ll automagically start playing the next song).

Don’t forget – webcast tonight!

Night Owls rejoice!  Lime Colony is casting web at 11:30pm TONIGHT (1/19) at the link below.  So gather around the warm glow of your old 15″ CRT monitor and observe.

Alternately, you may come watch live (just make sure you let us know so we can put you on the guest list), which would be grand.  Show-up time is 11 for y’all.

On performing

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

A subject has been coming up a bit lately, and I think it warrants a weblog post. It is the issue of balancing a visually engaging, energetic presentation with playing the songs well. Both are important.

(Note: the following is fairly genre-dependent, subjective and ill-informed.)

When you go see a band live, you expect to be entertained. There are two major parts to this. The first is the quality of the musical performance. The second is the quality of the, for lack of a better term (as I’m too lazy to think of one), act. Let’s examine these.

A band exists to make music (unless it’s a band of, say, transient clowns). It seems to follow that the musical performance is the most important and critical part of the show, with the act coming in a moderately distant second. But is this true?

Suppose you go to see a band you’ve never heard. We’ll call them Slime Folly. They come up on stage and make music seemingly flawlessly. While they are making such music, they are standing, looking devastated, staring at some piece of masking tape on the floor left over from some show three nights ago.

They are followed with another band called Flying Monotony. They proceed to rock the crap out of the stage as they play. Their energy washes over the crowd and everyone is, at a minimum, bouncing to the beat and grinning stupidly. While they are giving this performance, they screw some stuff up. Their harmonies are occasionally cringe-worthy, the guitar player poops a few chords, the drummer spills his beer and so forth.

Which is more enjoyable? Which would you rather see live?

(I realize that this is a false dichotomy, but be quiet).

Recording all day today.

See us!  Hear us!  Believe us!

If you couldn’t decipher the title of this post, or the silly words above, there is going to be a thunderous rock-and-roll concert in less than a month. It’s going to be at Bottom of the Hill, San Francisco, CA.  It’s going to be with The Yellow Dress.  It’s going to be with Passenger and Pilot.  It’s going to be with the JJ Schultz Band.

Fan A: “FOUR bands?”  Fan B: “Our dreams have come true.”  Fan A: “Yep.”

Read on for some more information…

MORE INFORMATION:

Cover? $8.  Doors? 8:30pm.  Ages? 21+.  The order, chronologically? The JJ Schultz Band; Passenger and Pilot; Lime Colony; The Yellow Dress.

This show was conceived and assembled based on pure, hard, concrete scientific facts.  Equations were sketched and numbers were scattered.  Facial hair was grown and then furiously shaved.  Nothing could make you happier.

Show Tomorrow!

We’re getting our rears in gear, and you should too. Come see the world’s finest collection of musicians ever assembled (Earl, Tim, Colin, and our new bassist, Will) at the Beale Street Bar in SF. Tomorrow night. It will be extreme.
