A lack of updates sometimes means a lack of things happening. That hasn't necessarily been the case. I hate to post every time something small happens, but a few small things and one big thing seemed to justify a new post. The live band has been busy right now AND I am working on a bit of instrumental music for a few things.
We had our first performance in July at The Main Street Cafe in Clarksburg, WV. We played with some really nice folks and the people at the venue are very nice. It was an eclectic lineup and I'm sure we will do it again.
I'll be doing music for a production of George Farquhar's play, The Beaux' Strategem this December. I'm also working on an interactive dance piece in conjunction with a really nice choreographer and two lighting designers/digital effects artists. This has potential to be really amazing, but we are still early in the process.
We are finishing up recording for our full length, The Great Repression. We've shared some music from this album already so you have an idea of what it will sound like. We would like to do some special video releases for this too. If you are a video creator or animator, email us and maybe we can collaborate.
The bigger news right now is that Black Hole Zion live band has been selected to play at the Trauma Halloween Fetish Festival in Columbus, Ohio. Trauma runs from 10/29/15 to 10/31/15 at the historic Bluestone Theater. Black Hole Zion will be performing on Friday, October 30th. We are very excited to be part of such an interesting and engaging sound and visual experience. You can read more about Trauma and purchase tickets at http://www.traumacolumbus.com. We will be doing some special things for this performance only. If you are in the area, or can make the drive, come out and see us.
Oh, and we just Twitter and YouTube accounts. You can follow and tweet to @blackholezion now if you are a Twitter person. The Black Hole Zion YouTube channel is here.
