Thank you to Lisa for again bringing her camera and taking some really great photos of our set at Jammin Java last week. And thanks to everyone who came out. We had a lot of fun. Oh Pep! and Micah were not only rad people, but played some quality music.
We played a show last week in Charlottesville at The Garage and Lisa was kind enough to bring her camera along and take some photos. Also, Steph Faucher was there with her camera too and sent us her photos. You can view them on Facebook here. Thanks Lisa and Steph!!
The show was amazing and we had such a great time playing with Michael Coleman and his backing band, Rusty Speidel. Many thanks to Sam Bush for setting it up and to Brian McMillen for running sound!
As I mentioned in last week’s post, Kate and I got to go to NPR headquarters in DC do an interview for Morning Edition. They posted it online and you can stream it here.
It was such a great experience. Really. We’re both big NPR fans/nerds/help please. Really, though. I listen every day and it helps make my transition from sweet, sweet sleep into the realities of the day a little bit smoother. So, I am grateful for the show itself, and then for them to have featured We Were Pirates was a just a really big honor. Many thanks.
Lisa got to hang out too, and she was kind enough to bring her camera and take a few photos.
You can listen to the WWP remix of the theme song on Soundcloud here:
Thanks so much to our local DC area NPR affiliate, WAMU for playing ‘The Cheapening’ on Wednesday. I was actually listening at the time and got to catch it live. So cool. They’re featuring all local interstitial music for the summer. It’s been great hearing Oddisee, Deleted Scenes, The Sea Life…. Lots of really good stuff.
It’s been a really nice week of NPR love. Kate and I got to stop by Morning Edition’s studios at NPR headquarters in DC to talk about We Were Pirates’ version of their theme music on Tuesday. It should air next week sometime. Possibly Monday? Meanwhile, you can listen to the theme at #morningeditiontheme on Soundcloud here.
You can download ‘The Cheapening’ here on Bandcamp.
WE WERE PIRATES
Thursday, July 7
NPR’s Morning Edition recently put out a call for musicians to re-imagine their theme music, and I finally had a chance to throw something together. Kate Rears Burgman came through with the cello and I played/recorded the rest of the instruments in my home studio.
I’m a fan of the show myself, so it was fun to get to take a crack at a song I hear in the background most days. Hope you dig it. Thanks for listening….
Charlottesville! We are very happy to be coming back to play a FREE acoustic show with our buddy, Michael Coleman. We were fortunate to get to share the stage with him a couple years ago, and we had a blast. Looking forward to another great night at The Garage.
