Things are going to be pretty excellent. Tyler bought a bunch of new drum stuff, so the percussion at the show ought to be pretty bombastic. He’s put a lot of work into the sound. Also – ALEX IS BACK!!! We played without him at Country Pizza! and at the Manimal Festival. While we had fun both times, he was sorely missed. But now he’s here!!! And with him, we’ll be playing the hits as well as new stuff that we’re recording for our next album.
This has been a pretty good week for Pizza! We had a blast at the Manimal Festival in Joshua Tree. LA Record posted a video of us playing “Big Mammoth Skull” there. Honestly, though, we had far more fun hanging out after our show than we did actually playing. Swoon magazine posted a video that captures the spirit of the fest. It seems like their trip was a little bit harsher than ours, though. All in all, a very weird and fantastic weekend. I think we’re all very excited about being in the company of the musicians we saw last weekend. We have a lot to learn from them.
We got mentioned on a few blogs and the like this week, thanks to Manimal and our friend Tim. The Deli LA has a voting thing – if you have a moment, maybe vote for us as their artist of the month? It’s always nice to be considered for stuff like that.
