It’s been a long time since I’ve updated this blog; I suppose you can consider me officially inactive. But!
I wanted to share this with you guys: A couple nights ago I went to Motion City’s FREE show in Brooklyn, NY. They were amazing, as usual! I also managed to get a bass guitar pick from Matthew Taylor!
I’ve got a couple things from that show posted on my instagram account, which I’ll probably share on here in a little while. In the meantime, I use my instagram as a showcase for all the concerts I go to, so I would appreciate it if you checked it out! :)
Well, that was my 5th Motion City Soundtrack show. If you haven’t had the chance to see them yet, make it your life goal! Go! It’s beyond worth it.
POZ Video Premiere: Real Friends, Modern Baseball, Stickup Kid, Candy Hearts - “When You’re Around (Motion City Soundtrack Cover)”
We’re gonna break Tumblr. On the last day of tour this past summer, our buddies in Real Friends, Modern Baseball, Candy Hearts, and Stickup Kid all got together to record a great acoustic cover of Motion City Soundtrack's “When You're Around.” PropertyOfZack is very happy to be premiering the cover today in conjunction with Soundlapse who did a great job filming the shoot. Watch all four bands cover “When You're Around” below!
I Am The Movie: The Movie
Last year we sorted through hours of video footage and photographs from when we first recorded and released our debut album, I Am The Movie. We realized we had such great footage from those days that we thought it would be cool to put together a documentary inspired stylistically by Fugazi’s Instrument. We asked our friend Melissa Kraemer to lead the project and she did an amazing job editing together the story of I Am The Movie through the songs, from start to end.
We are releasing this video documentary, now called I Am The Movie: The Movie, on May 13th through our longtime label Epitaph Records. I Am the Movie: The Movie will be available on limited edition DVD in the original floppy disk packaging that the album was released on, as well as through digital outlets like iTunes and Amazon.
You can watch the I Am The Movie: The Movie trailer here: http://youtu.be/OQ2mEooDNHE
To celebrate the release of the documentary, we will perform the album I Am The Movie acoustic, for the first time ever, in it’s entirety, start to finish at the 240-cap seated McNally-Smith Auditorium on the campus of McNally-Smith College of Music in St. Paul, MN on Tuesday, May 13th at 7PM. Tickets are $25.00 and will be on-sale on Friday April 18th at 10 a.m. via www.etix.com or at the Depot Tavern
Filling up on endless insights,
from other people’s ugly insides,
all this bitterness is starting to grow cold.
