Quest Coast Tour Diary #4

We’re back in the Bay Area after too amazing a time in Portland, OR and Seattle, WA, and the new AJAPOPFILMS video above proves it. Our second show in Portland, OR fell through, but we ended up going to a rad house show and partied with Apes Tapes, Radiation City, and 2 Player Productions.

BUT, the quest isn’t quite over yet. Our homecoming show is in less than a week, on Thursday, July 7 at DNA Lounge in San Francisco. This show is going to be super-special for a number of reasons:

  • It’s the first PulsewaveSF show – this will be a monthly chip show in San Francisco!
  • Bit Shifter is coming from NYC and headlining
  • Awkward Terrible will be flying from Milwaukee and opening this show and they are THE BEST. Check out their new album they just released on Bandcamp, “I Feel Asleep
  • Our debut EP “Anything Past That” will be released and on sale at the show!
  • Plus, TONS and TONS of other surprises and new stuff we can’t mention on here!

So pretty, much, yeah. You’ll have to attend the show if you’re in the Bay Area. You can get advance tickets here. For those not in the area, DNA Lounge offers a webcast on their website. Bookmark this link!

Speaking of Awkward Terrible, we’ll be working on an awesome vinyl split release with them while they’re with us in San Francisco. You can bet your pretty face you’ll want it.

Oh yes, and speaking of our debut EP, we have finally unleashed its final cover art to the [internet] masses. Thanks, as always, to the talented Mike Bombon for the design!

See you all next week! Please check out our updated videos page on the menu above for more AJAPOPFILMS goodness.

Buttons, April 7, and Japan

 

Our buttons finally arrived today, and just in time for our show with Anamanaguchi and Peelander-Z, which is in less than a month! Buying tickets early is cheaper (and recommended), so make sure you do so on the DNA Lounge website! We’ll have these, as well as more stickers, at our merch table at the show, as well as some other fun stuff. And if you’re on Facebook, you can RSVP here! Please spread the word, San Francisco!

Aren’t these buttons awesome? Big thanks to Mike Bombon, who designed these. Show him some love by visiting his website or following him on Twitter @VULTR3.

Also, many, many thanks to everyone who’s bought our tracks already on Bandcamp. We’ve raised some money and we’re donating 100% of it to American National Red Cross to aid Japan. You can still help out by visiting our Bandcamp page. Additionally, we’ll have a NEW song in a chiptunes compilation organized by True Chip Till Death and Pixelh8. If you donate money here, not only will you be helping out the country, but you’ll also receive an awesome collection of chip music from talented artists everywhere. For more information, visit The Chip Fund at firstgiving.com.

For my new band The Glowing Stars, things have been really kicking off since we released our first track “I Know Now” on the internet. Special thanks to my cousin Phoebe Jacinto for recording backup vocals, Riki Feldmann for mixing our demo on such short notice, and Mike Bombon for designing our kickass logo and art for our demo.

Please “Like” our Fan Page on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/theglowingstars if you dig our song! We have another song on the way called “Got it Bad” which should be released really soon. We’ll also be at PAX East giving away some cool stuff, so all you people out on the East Coast should come by!

On the subject of chiptunes, there will be an awesome nerdcore and chiptunes show tomorrow night in San Francisco at Bamm.tv Studio! For those not in San Francisco, you can stream the show live at http://bamm.tv . Some of the artists performing are Crashfaster, who also puts on 8bitsf which Anamanaguchi has played, and Doctor Popular, who has actually asked me to perform a song with him! So yes, I will also be performing a song with him during his set, so don’t miss it! More info about the event here:

So, all that aside, we do have some great plans ahead for The Glowing Stars that hasn’t been announced yet. Some really big things, and some smaller things. More on that later, so make sure to at least follow my band on Twitter. 🙂
