The Ever After will be playing a 40 minute set in the front room of one of the best dive bars in SF, El Rio (3158 Mission St (@ Cesar Chavez), San Francisco, CA 94110). LEANAH OXNARD will be opening with what is sure to be an exciting set of acoustic material. Best of all: It’s Free! So there are no excuses why you can’t come out, have a few beers and enjoy the great back patio and some lovely music. Show starts at 7pm. Tues. June 25th, 2013. Join the event on Facebook!
Excited to play a short set at Park 77 on Saturday, Feb. 23rd. This will be the first show in San Francisco. No cover. I checked it out last week and it is very cool spot with a lot of good beers on tap and a spacious outdoor patio. Fun!
In a concerted effort to get some more tracks out there to be heard and (hopefully) appreciated, I’ve put a few songs from Oh Dear! up on Soundcloud. They can be checked out at https://soundcloud.com/theeverafter
Next project is to finish re-mixing and mastering the new EP. Its a few tracks that I’ve had kicking around for the last few years but never really polished off entirely. That should hopefully be ready in the next few weeks.
The Ever After has been off the radar for a bit as we locate to the foggy hills of San Francisco. There should be some more news and hopefully music and shows by the new year. Meanwhile, please enjoy this photo of my newest purchase – a 2006 cream colored American Strat – which I got from Caruso Instruments in New London, CT. It looks a bit like the strat that Hendrix played at Woodstock (except the ebony fretboard). If I were Clapton I might be tempted to call it Creamy but I’m not so I won’t I used to have a strat that I played exclusively in my late teens and early 20′s. I loved it dearly and stupidly traded it for a fine guitar but I would have preferred to have held on to it. Ah, to be young and poor.
I met an amp maker named Michael Whitney at Caruso’s and tried a bunch of his excellent amps. Apparently Mr. Whitney is opening up a shop in New London in the early New Year where he will be selling his fine amplifiers. Definitely worth checking them out – they sound great. I hope to make it back and purchase one myself. Ok, bye for now, Andreas
Here is the latest single from the The Ever After called The Doll. It was written and recorded by Dre for his friend Shubihashish Bhutani’s short film The Star. The film is currently being considered at various film festivals so we can’t provide the video yet but you can check out the tune below. It began as a tongue in cheek take on a Bieber-esque tune and ended up as…well…this
