My ska band, The Two Tone Boners, is trying to get a van, and you can help out by donating and sharing and spreading the word! Please donate if you can- even if it’s a dollar or two, it’ll help. We’re a bunch of working-class guys from the same small town just out of LA who make music and want to share that music with the rest of the US. So please, donate and share this post!

Did I die and go to heaven? Today was amazing. Things worked out, and our set time allowed us to not cancel, and we played a rocking set. I missed out on the Maxies because we played the Constellation Room the same time as them, but we were able to somehow retain a full-capacity crowd when Skadonna played. On top of that, hospitality was incredible- the band got free booze, burgers, and hot dogs, and I got to see so many of my friends in the OC ska scene and in the out-of-town bands that I haven’t seen in a while! I also got to spend time and explain a bit of what I needed to say to this girl I really like during late night Denny’s, and sure enough, Frank and Eddie from Voodoo Glow Skulls came in to eat. They said they would check us out at the Viva Ska Vegas pre-party…

I guess this is me singing a song I wrote with my band playing with GOGO 13 at the Slidebar on Tuesday…

Thoughts on expanding

theskankingpanda:

So, I’ve kinda assumed the duties of a band promoter. As such, I’ve been trying to hunt down shows in areas and places we haven’t played before. Here’s where we’ve been wanting to play:

Somewhat locally:
-The OC
-The Inland Empire
-Riverside County
-The San Fernando/Santa Clarita Valleys

Possible tours:
-San Diego
-San Francisco
-New Mexico

I have a rough idea of who to talk to in the possible tours (i.e. The Gilman up in San Fran; Che Cafe on campus at UC San Diego; a few guys at Amped in Albuquerque, New Mexico).

As such, we’re also looking for hookups on shows, so anyone who reads this and needs a band to fill a lineup… hit us up!
