Re: Songfight Live 2022 IRL Interest Poll

So the drummer in the band I've been currently playing with regularly just played a gig at a nice, cool bar in downtown Redwood City (SF Bay Area) and her other band drew a good crowd on an otherwise dead Friday night last week, so the owner loves her. The bar has a downstairs with a pool table and ...

Re: Songfight Live 2022 IRL Interest Poll

I think there is very likely to still be an online component of Song Fight Live even if there is also some in-person component. Everybody made such great stuff for the live streams the last couple years and they seemed to go over really well, and it's great to have a way for more folks to be involv...

Re: Don't stand under it (Lightning Rod prefight)

Have an idea for this that I've been wanting to do for a while, has to do with needing a song that starts in one key and ends in another... the lyric came quickly, it's already done, but the recording is going to take a while. We'll see if it works out, but I'm trying to keep the streak going here....

Re: Telecasters of Song Fight!

Jimmy Page played the lead on "Stairway to Heaven" on a 1959 Telecaster given to him by Jeff Beck when he joined the Yardbirds. I love my Strat but I love Teles too.

Wow... Dennis emailed me this evening to give me the news, and I an absolutely shocked! I was the last bass player for sonofsupercar, and though we only played together for ~6 months I can confirm everything that has been said about Blue in these posts. Blue was an incredible musician, badass drumm...

Very sad news. I had the pleasure of meeting Blue at Santa Cruz in 06. Great bloke.
He did so much to support those 2 live shows, including shlepping a lot of gear to and from Mountain View. He was a one man roadie wrecking crew.

Re: Blue Lang Hxaro

Back-in-the-day Song Fight legend Blue Lang passed away. Some folks expressed interest in a musical tribute. Let's do it! I think most of his Song Fight entries were with his band sonofsupercar but he's got a few more in there and maybe some of you know about ones the rest of us don't. Maybe also f...

Re: Goodbye Blue Lang

I'd even credit Blue with bringing "collaborations" to SF. I know some people worked together on songs (like the Lancaster folks) but Blue was the guy who started the IRC (SF Chat). And we used to hang out in there and people would collaborate because they could now chat in real time. It's where I h...

Re: Goodbye Blue Lang

I'm in complete shock. The guy was a beast. And he influenced early SF so much. If he liked your stuff you got tingles. If he hated it you wore it like a badge or ran away. He was brutally blunt and honest and the fucking essence of Song Fight! He loved this place and he loved the community here. Th...

Oh, that's a good point, I hadn't looked at the originating site.

FWIW, for the last little while when Jack Shite was still running it as a weeklyish thing on its own site, he was mostly picking sample packs and a capellas from ccMixter.org.

Or you could have a "Spud's Happy Hour" where Spud plays host to videos people send him. I think you get the idea. It needs show runners and themes. I have been wanting to get back in the game and looking for a way. I had fun doing the live show and making the voting widget. I have recently done a ...

Re: Song Fight! Live(Stream) - September 2020

So this is just my opinion but I think the next logical step for this new Song Fight! video channel thing is to have someone do a themed weekly show, or monthly, or something "regular" (vs. "one off") people will ultimately subscribe to. For example, maybe someone does a monthly "Best Of Song Fight!...

Re: Was Song Fight Live your first gig?

SF! Live, to which I've thus far only attended once, was not my first gig. It was, however, the first and only time I stood alone and performed with guitar and vocals. (I never insult singers by calling what I do singing) The bands I played in wisely left vocals to others. I'd love to, and hope to,...
