recently my friend bryant (aka beeface killah of the beehavers) was chatting with me & asked how long seaweedsway had been going. i realized it's been 7 years since i've been promoting here in the bay area. crazy! then we realized the show we were working on together would be on 7-7. perfect! we decided to celebrate 7 years of seaweedsway on 7-7, which is today. yay!
i'm very grateful that emily took the time to ask these questions. it made me think more about what this project is, and is perhaps becoming, as a community effort, and i hope you'll take the time to read it. thanks for being a part of it.
seaweedsway started with the weekly email list & blog, basically. thank you to all who have kept up with it over the years, even if you don't live here. my intention with this is to share the music i love & if you live here, maybe we get to meet up at these shows, have fun experiences, hang out, & hear good music. or practice yoga, dance, or even farm & garden together. if you are out of town or don't go to shows, i hope you listen to the bands sometimes & hear new sounds that might stay with you.
and tonight!we are celebrating seaweedsway's 7th anniversary at amnesia, with a kick-ass show. collin ludlow-mattson & the folks are releasing their cd, which features collin, matt adams (who also produced the album), lucas boilon, indianna hale, & sleepy todd. "the folks" tonight will include sean olmstead & will halsey as well. matt adams of the blank tapes is releasing a picnic plate vinyl of the song Double Rainbow, & will be joined by bandmembers will, sean, & maybe steve winchell (if he's back from the rainbow gathering on time). the beehavers are whole-heartedly opening the night, with their voodoo folk-rock highly dance-able tunes. show starts at 9 and is $7-10.
