with the outstanding

"You're Not Dead"

Recently Matty showed up for rehearsal with a new tune.  I'd heard it once before on a recording he produced with Ben Singer.  He brought the recording over for us to listen to, and I have continued to play it ever since

Every so often a song comes to visit for a reason.  You hear someone else play it or you write it or you end up playing it with a friend or bandmate, and the bright shiny poignance of it is just overwhelming and leaves you slightly catatonic.  Recently Matty showed up for rehearsal with a new tune like that.

It's called "You're Not Dead," and I can't stop listening to it.

Turntable's Grand Opening

We'll be playing Turntable's Grand Opening in Jamestown, NC on November 17th.  It's a brand new venue/coffee house/bar/cool place.  Here, let me let them tell you about it.  This is from Turntable's website, :

About The Owners:
We are Turntable, aka Jonathan and Renee. If you have not met us yet, we hope that changes soon! Over the past nine years, while living in the DC metro area, independently and as a couple, we found ourselves living in local coffee shops, intimate music venues, and record stores. The idea of Turntable ventures back to our first date when we attended one of these favorite venues for their open mic night. That evening we both shared a vision of opening our own live music venue. With the opportunity to create an atmosphere within a house that holds so much family history, we couldn’t think of a better place to begin.

We have created a unique space with eclectic and vintage furniture that combines inspiration with our own personal flavor. It may remind you of your living room or basement growing up. Either way, we hope the nostalgia mixed with live music will make you feel back at home and happy. Our primary goal is to provide a venue featuring up and coming artists to perform and be heard. Come sit back, relax with your beverage of choice at Turntable - Extended Play for all…

We'll be playing at 1:00pm, following a Pumpkin Smashing event, and right before the band Suitcase.  I'm excited.  -matty

This Month in the Life of The Blockheads

Drawing by Stefan DiMuzio
We will be performing twice this month (September), so there two chances to see us play, and at two different venues. The first show will be on Friday, 9/28 at Sessions on Spring Garden St.  It'll be an earlier show, and we'll be playing with our friend Chelsea who performs as Ten Cent Poetry- from Asheville, NC.  This will be our first show at Sessions.

The next night, 9/29, we will be performing at CFBG for Greensboro Fest 2012!  We love Greensboro Fest, and we haven't played CFBG in a looooong time.  Also playing that night at CFBG: The Old One-Two, The Raving Knaves, and Albino Rhino.

Our first album should be done by this Fall!  Stay tuned for updates...
