On monday we started a campaign featured a video that we called the #bledfestchallenge in which we challenged Andrew WK to party at our set during Bledfest, a festival in which we are playing and Andrew is headlining. We asked those in the Flint Family (aka people who listen to our music - cause let’s face it, we’re in this together) to tweet Andrew WK a video saying we want to party with him and that they want to see him party with us, too. AND TODAY HE TWEETED US SAYING HE IS IN. HE’S GOING TO PARTY. AT BLEDFEST. WITH US! DURING OUR SET!!!!
TO MAKE MATTERS EVEN BETTER, HE PUT US ON HIS WEBSITE - THERE WE ARE. NEXT TO THE MASTER OF PARTY!!!!!
You guys, i don’t think you understand how huge this is for us. Andrew WK has played a major role in our musical upbringing. He taught us that music (and life) can and should be as exciting as you want it to be. He taught us the power of postive partying and that partying is a lifestyle of intentionally being exciting about everything life has to offer, no matter how miniscule or mundain it may seem at a quick glance. This is truly an experience we will never forget!
Saturday night a few friends put on a concert, a night of awesome talent and music. This was to celebrate the release of DL Rossi’s (top photo) new self titled album. I decided to bring along my 1963 Polaroid Automatic 100 Land Camera for some fun. Here are 2 versions of images this camera cam produce: 1-the scanned negative. 2-the scanned print. I love both of these looks and depending on the feel of the scene I will use either. This was my first time shooting it in an actual concert usually i am all digital. This stage had awful lighting but i am looking forward to trying it out on better stages.
Please download DL Rossi’s album and support musicians who are passionate about great song writing and wonderful music.
Also check out Flint Eastwood (Clay Carnill featured in bottom photo), an amazing band along the lines of The Black Keys and a few other straight out awesome high energy rock bands. Jax the front woman of Flint Eastwood was one of the most energetic leaders I’ve seen and was able to whoop that crowd up in no time!
