This might be considered the first official installment of The Terrapin blog. We have 3 shows currently booked for the month of June with the possibility of one more towards the end of the month. First gig up is going to be us performing in San Pedro at Harold's Bar. It is being presented by Craig Ibarra and The Rise and Fall magazine. They've been putting on some great shows over the years that we have had the chance to go to. It is going to be Saturday June, 12th. We will go on first and open up the night. Admission is FREE but they will be taking donations so that they can get a new PA system to continue to be able to put on the kinds of shows they have.
The next shows we have will be the following week on Tuesday June, 15th and Wednesday the 15th. The June 15th show we will be performing at The Prospector in Long Beach with The Verpertines and Modest Fur. The show is going to be featuring DJ Oldboy who spins a great mix of old soul, R&B as well as some great garage rock rarities. On top of that, it is also going to Alan's birthday! The next night will find us at a newish venue called La Fonda with our friends in the band Swordfights as well as Torches In Trees.
RECORDING NEWS: Next Friday and Saturday June 11th and 12th we will be recording with producer Raymond Richards at Red Rockets Glare. We are pretty stoked about it after a minor set back. We will be recording all day Saturday June 12th before we pack up our gear and head to Harold's in San Pedro to play.
I guess that covers most of what we have going on right now other than the usual mish-mash of going and seeing bands around town.
We hope to see you around soon,
