O.R. celebrates 10 years of throwing it down.
Things have been so busy since we have last done a blog post and I haven't had time to send our email blast out either, so I'll just pick right up where we left off and get to the good stuff. Tuesday, June 5th we did a last minute show at The Firebird w/ Athel and our friends in Fer De Lance. It was our first show there and I was impressed with Athel, myself and our drummer Patrick were asked to say a little something to their camera crew for the tour documentary they are putting together. When it is done, I will try to remember to share it. June, for me personally, was a lot of preparation for things coming up that next month. The second annual Rock University Festival was one example. Which was a blast, by the way. Plus, we have just been busy putting things in order for the digital and physical release of "Decapitated Society". We were able to debut and talk about the new single "Teach Me How To Learn" on 105.7fm The Point's Local Show and Indio Radio. Dia "Live From The Band Room" also played the track and was kind enough to do so for us on her show that airs on Metalholic Radio and Maximum Threshold Radio. The Galaxy Radio at Webster University was actually the debut of it, but I did that to see who was actually paying attention and because they have been kind to us. In addition, the Hard Rock Cafe was the sponsored guest of the Deliciously Alive w/ Kelley Lamm Show at the end of June, so it was nice to have a snippet played and meet some beautiful new faces. Last, but certainly not least, I have to mention my friend Richard. He invited me over to his studio to tape a commercial for Rock U Fest 2012, meanwhile he was streaming his other video productions on facebook. He heads up The Itchy Show and I appreciated his support too. So, that brings us up to speed now.
Saturday, August 18th will be our tenth anniversary show at the Old Rock House! The intentional reason I chose this venue was because of the fact that the operator there was the last person to manage Mississippi Nights, back in the day. Our first show was there in Aug. of 2002, so it seemed like a no-brainer to give them a nod for multiple reasons. We will be sharing the stage with our long time buddies in Reigning Heir and new friends in Connibal Road. This will also be Connibal Road's last show w/ their current drummer too. All of us will play extended sets, we will play at least an hour, if not an hour and fifteen minutes. It's all-ages, no minor surcharge. Five dollars at the door. Incredible venue w/ a parking lot across the street and parking directly behind the venue, plus on the street. It will be a memorable night, for sure!
Also, just announced recently was this event happening at Fubar on Friday, September 14th produced by Archfront Media. Eye Empire, Blameshift, Downstait & us w/ another TBA.
