Octagrape video

I was honored to be asked to make a video for one of my favorite bands, Octagrape. It officially comes out next month but you guys can watch it now cuz you’re so cool. Also, I have a movie coming out very soon. Info at www.sdmusicdoc.com. In further news, I’m neglecting my websites.

Neglect

Children of the Stars has had a small flurry of press. A feature in the Huffington Post, an audio interview from KPBS radio, a review from the San Francisco Bay Guardian and a feature on Fox News San Diego. There’s a free LA screening coming up February 23rd at 7 Dudley Cinema/Beyond Baroque, 681 Venice Blvd, Venice. It’s part of Gerry Fialka’s film series.

Following a late February trip to DC and New York It’s Gonna Blow!!! – San Diego’s Music Underground 1986-1996 is headed int0 post production. So far we’ve interviewed over 50 musicians, promoters, club owners and others for the film and it’s all been great fun.

Of course we’ve been doing lots of commercial work for small businesses. You probably need us to do something for you so don’t hesitate to say hello.

I’m always the guy with his eyes closed in the photo. The Pinback and Deathfix crews in Santa Barbara. A nicer group of people you couldn’t hope to meet.
