It's May already? It's been a year (almost) since the formation of The Januariez. And looking back at everything we've done in this time, I'm thinking we're moving right along.
April, as always, is a transitional month. I don't know why that is, but crazy shit goes down in April. Tax Day, the sinking of the Titanic, Andi the Pandi's birthday (and I still need to mail her a check for helping The Januariez with T-shirts), volatile weather, allergies, jobs change, people move, etc. In the case of this April, for The Januariez, we've had some changes, and we played two super fun shows with some great bands
Check out the video from April 22nd.
In the realm of changes, our bass player Gorilla J., has decided to leave the band. As many of you know, he has been busy with his other band and he works a lot, and there just wasn't anymore time in his full schedule. Reno and I wish him well in his endeavors.
So at the moment, our pal Tony Rivera has stepped in on bass for the next few months, at least until our recording is complete! Tony has been playing bass for longer than I should say, ahem, and he has some cool projects going on, one being his solo project, Shai Azul. Check em out if you have a moment! In the interim, we will be auditioning bass players. If you have any suggestions for good bass players, please pass them along!
For this month, we have 1 super cool show coming up!
Saturday, May 19, we have been invited to open for none other than Hedwig and the Angry Inch! We are joined by Portland band, The Quick and Easy Boys! Stoked is an understatement.
After this show, we will be focusing on auditions and pre-production for the studio.
Until next time!
