BREATHE TIME

Two nights ago we played yet another fun show (isn't rock and roll just tons of fun, guys?) at Cause in Uptown. My friend of many years now, Jordan Taylor, opened the night solo with a knees-weakening set of songs from Two Beat Band's latest EP, stripped down to nothing more than a nylon string guitar. Then BEAR came and played and tickled some inner-ear hairs with our take on the age-old art of music. After that Hotel San Sebastian made us all dizzy with their amazing set of songs. Please check them out if you get a chance. 

love this shot from @thereallizdoyle. it's the one song Jon doesn't play on, so he's just kicking back on his amp, drinking a beer. can't keep a good man down.

Now we here at BEAR HQ have a little time to breathe. The last few weeks have seen us primarily tightening up our existing set for a different show each week. Since our next show isn't until October 26th (that's the Saturday before Halloween, and we're hosting a rock show/costume party at Driftwood Char Bar & Goosebumps is playing their 2nd show in 8 years & Goosebumps is releasing an anthology of all their songs to date that night in CD and cassette form & our new friends End Quotes are also playing), we're going to take the next few practices to put the finishing touches on a few new jams we're really excited about. We've also got a small handful of our 7" to package up and mail out to some patient folks. 

Tonight, I'll be going into BEAR bassmaster Jordan's studio to record some film music for a documentary project. I'm not legally allowed to say anything more than that, except it's an honor to be considered as a potential composer for this thing. All I need to do is nail this music. No pressure or anything. Don't phuck up. 

Ok, we've got some serious business to take care of. We can't be wasting any more time on the infobahn writing blog posts today. Over and out.
