MATT KEEGAN GIVING YOU PRIVATE LESSONS COOOOOOL
Hey, here’s a message from our Australian brotha Matt:
Hey everyone! Although I’m sure you guys loved checking this site only to be reminded of that horrifying and depressing rape statistic, here’s a different thing that hopefully doesn’t bum you out as much! I (Matt) am now offering trombone, trumpet, and guitar online lessons via Skype (or any other video chat platform that you prefer).
Scheduling is flexible and rates are cheap/flexible, so visit http://mattkeeganmusic.tumblr.com/teaching or email matthew.keegan.music (at) gmail (dot) com if you or anyone you know might be interested in cheap online music lessons from someone who, in addition to being in a bunch of sloppy punk bands, has been teaching music lessons professionally for over 10 years. In fact, a professional-type Bio is available for your thorough examination at http://mattkeeganmusic.tumblr.com/bio in case you were interested but didn’t trust the credentials of someone who you’ve mostly seen on stage as a drunken screaming psychopath.
That same Tumblr also has links to various recordings of projects I’ve been working on, which, along with other posts about music, etc., will be updated regularly in the future. So, um, I guess “follow” that shit, or whatever…
I am also available for freelance long distance trombone recording, if anyone in a band is interested in that.
Also, if anyone wants to “reblog” this, I’d really appreciate it!
Whoa. It’s been a while since we’ve been here on this tumblr, huh? Just wanted to let you know that we record a new song and are releasing it with hopes to raise some money for Respond and Rebuild, who are cleaning up the garbagey moldy mess that Hurricane Sandy left in the Rockaways.
We are not requiring a donation for you to download it (that ain’t our style) but we ARE trying to make you feel guilty…
Where’s that basket full of puppies gonna go if you don’t help?
Also, you’ve only got one more day to donate to a charity for this fiscal year! So shouldn’t you do it? you should! You know you should!!!!!!!
JEFF ROSENSTOCK SOLO “MIXTAPE (?)”
Hey, everyone. In honor of this solo tour I’m doing with my buddies in Andrew Jackson Jihad and Future of the Left, I’ve put together a new solo record. It’s called I Look Like Shit and it’s not so much a rallying cry to start a solo career as much as it is a bunch of new stuff, a bunch of covers and some stuff I’ve been working on the past few years that has never really found its place in the world. Anyway, get it here and come see me on tour pleeeeeeeez thaaaaaaaaaaanx.

HARD GIRLS + REALLY RECORDS!
Our buddies in the band Hard Girls are releasing their first full-length record through Jeff from Bomb the Music Industry’s label REALLY RECORDS!!! We are starting a fundraising campaign to help raise the money for pressing. You should go over to http://hardgirls.reallyrecords.com to learn some more about it and then also PRE-ORDER THIS RECORD! Once our goal is reached we will release this record to the public for fucking free. But online. And let’s face it, how often do you have internet. Like, there’s some seconds where you don’t sometimes, you know.
INCENTIVE!!! HERE’S THE AMAZING VIDEO FOR “MAJOR PAYNE” SHOT BY BOB VIELMA OF SHINOBU AND ASIAN MAN RECORDS FAME. YOU MIGHT KNOW HIM AS BOBOSO.
Hey everyone. I’ve been sitting in lil’ office in my apartment working all morning and have decided to take a break to thank everyone for coming out to see us on this tour, especially to those of you who took the time to say hello to us, say nice things, sing along, buy us beer, make us jalapeño tequila (!), give us the local beer or snack in your town, hung out with us although I am pretty confused by the total lack of dance parties and karaoke on this trip, write us letters, let us sleep on your floor even though we were strangers, let us play in your house late after our shows were done, and I don’t know… just keep us company and letting us make some more new friends.
This was a super fun tour. Lots of places we’ve never seen before from cities, to countries to geographical wonders. I believe we did 28 shows in 26 days which is a record for us, but that might be wrong as I do not know how to use a calendar. I’ve got a scar on my hand from trying to make a quesadilla at 3 in the morning in Eureka. John’s got two scars on his hand from trying to open a bottle of wine using a Croc and a streetlight. The rest of us have no new scars I’m pretty sure.
I’ll also ignore the big elephant in the room and say “Uhhhhh WE’LL SEE YOU NEXT TIME REAL SOON OKAY? COMING RIGHT BACK OKAY? COMING RIIIIIIIIGHT BACK. OKAY?”
Seriously though, we had a great time. Thanks for making us feel so welcome, especially in so many new places. Love ya.
