yesterday's session

We had the D.U.M.E. recording session/concert yesterday at The Hunt Studio in Millstone (which was a really great studio, by the way)... fortunately for us, the other bands that were supposed to participate bailed, so we had the place all to ourselves. Thus allowing us to have more time and freedom to try different configurations of instrumentation, etc. It turned out way better than any of us had expected; what had started off as just a thrown-together outfit just for fun suddenly became something really magical. The metamorphosis was so stark that I feel like we ought to change the band name to something less silly.. the music reflects something much deeper now. I guess when we figure out what the new band name is, I'll make us a new myspace page. :(

Upcoming Kayo Dot Shows

We have about a week's worth of shows on the path to and from SXSW in March. There are a couple towns that need filling in, but there's now a pretty solid list up at Kayo Dot's myspace page. Nice to be booking again after not playing since '06! As far as lineup details, we have been rehearsing with a few guys:

Patrick Wolff (woodwinds), Daniel Means (woodwinds and guitar), David Bodie (drums from Time of Orchids), and Terran Olson on keyboards and woodwinds (formerly of Kayo Dot and maudlin of the Well - yes!!!!)

A D.U.M.E. Candle is a black vigil candle with a Black List on it - write the names of those who have wronged you in the black list and burn the candle, bad luck comes upon them.

kayo dot shows!

I'm pretty sure KD is going to be playing South by Southwest in March. I'm trying to book a few dates around it now, on the way down and back. This would be something like Richmond, Asheville, Hattiesburg, Austin, Denton, Nashville, Washington DC or Baltimore, and NYC.
Trying to only hit cities we have played several times so that we can draw enough of an audience. If any of my readers are near one of these places and would like to set up a show for Kayo Dot (March 10-18), please email me! (NOT via blog comments! thanks)
