Re: Song Fight! Live 2020 Berkeley CANCELLED

So here's kind of a nutty idea/compromise. Song Fight! "Kind of Live" 2020. Anyone who wants to participate submits a video of say 20 minutes or less of them doing a live performance of their "set" to someone (say Sam). Sam collects all the videos and uploads them to a dedicated YouTube channel for ...

Re: Unsaddle the horse and write your (Golfpunk Rides Again reviews)

Old School Reviews! Sockpuppet: Nice farty opening bass. I like the funk. It’s got a Zappa feel to it. Especially with the title background vocals. And I like the dirty guitar lead. The spoken word is fine but I’m not really following along with the whole ‘story”. But the mix is nice and sounds good...

So let's just all get back to posting old school reviews! It will be fun. There will be some tears, but in the end, Sam will be okay.
I'm in!

Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

But we had some fun with our battles back then! Me and Generic would go at it! And don't get me started on Blue. That dude could make the Baby Jesus cry. The diss was almost an art form. Which is pretty true of real life good friends. Real life good friends love to rip on each other (in a hopefully ...

Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

What's funny is that the one time fairly recently where I did a set of reviews in the "old" style -- that is to say "pointlessly harsh" -- they really weren't received that well. The method being "play the fight to my wife who doesn't want to listen to music right now and see how long it takes her ...

Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

I just wanted to say I've hung out with lots of you over the past 17 odd years, not very often, maybe once a year or less, but every single time I've hung out with Song Fight! folks I've had a great time. I've never met a bad person on Song Fight! There's a reason it's lasted this long. Community.

Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

Happy birthday, plus a few days, Song Fight! Here's my incredible story. I began recording on 4-track cassette in late '88. In 1994-95, I took a music class while living in Albuquerque. We all had to compose something and present it to the class. I was the only one who titled theirs. (Hounded By A ...

Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

May 2003. Eric and I (brody) entered our first Song Fight! (Shreds). Lots of great songs. We told all our friends about it. We won. I guess that's kind of a rite of passage. I think I found out about Song Fight! from Blue Lang. I think he posted on craigslist under the local musicians area and I was...

I've broached the subject with Ken offline a bit. I've been holding out but I think it's probably time to start thinking about shifting to doing a live stream or something. Sad stuff! :(

Re: Song Fight! Live 2020 SF Bay Area Aug 28/29

So given the unlikelihood of this event actually happening live and "in person", has there been any discussion of doing a "virtual" Song Fight! Live show as a back up? We've never missed a year!

I think this is by far the earliest the date and venue has been solidified ever. Plus it's a cool bar! Well done Sam.

Re: Song Fight! Live 2020 SF Bay Area Aug 28/29

I think Robin and I are going to do this. I've always wanted to get to San Francisco and didn't pull the trigger on Songfight I-LWC. Get this, I thought the whole idea of internet people meeting up in real life was just too dangerous and crazy at the time. (I read too much news and that was the fea...

OK folks, big news. We're booked at the Starry Plough in Berkeley on August 28th and 29th! Start making (or changing :P) your plans now!
Sweet! I love that place! I'm in (hopefully with band in tow). Somebody tell the Redmons!

Re: Song Fight! Live #20 in 2020 for Song Fight! 20th anniversary SF Bay Area

Yay! For anybody who's never come to an SF Live before, everybody is nice and welcoming and it's a really fun time, even if you don't know anybody IRL yet. It's totally worth it. I remember many years ago I skipped SF Live 2004 in Austin because I was too nervous about hanging out with a bunch of s...

Santa Cruz isn't a 2 hour drive from SF. Maybe the way you drive.

As for otters, not sure about SF. They have sea lions and seals at Pier 39. Sausalito has otters. The ferry ride over there is cheap fun.

So, the Berkeley venue we used last time has asked us if we would like August 28th and 29th. That's the Friday and Saturday of the last weekend in August. What do y'all think about that?
That's the weekend before Labor Day weekend.

The San Francisco 49ers play in Santa Clara, about 45 minutes south of San Francisco. Berkeley is a ten minute drive from San Francisco in light traffic. You can see it from the city. Just saying.
