A few words on why we've been pretty quiet as of late. Our primary videographer was involved in a motorcycle accident in July, which fortunately did not lead to any series permanent injury, but unfortunately did result in the destruction of much of our video equipment, including our main handheld camera. We've been slowly replacing everything as insurance settlements have been paid out, and should be back filming some shows in the next couple of months. Oddly enough, the incident occurred just a few miles from the official site of SBP's founding, US 101's exit 667a.
In a separate event that unlike the other was totally our fault, the GoPro we generally use for those awesome behind-the-drummer shots got wet and it fried the shutter button, so we're looking to replace that in the coming weeks as well.
We'd like to take this opportunity to remind you that you can support our work and cover these unanticipated costs by making a purchase from our Cafepress shop (which has the added benefit of free publicity for us) or making a contribution through PayPal. We'll send anybody who does so some stickers with which to adorn the dark, vomity corners of your favorite divey music venue. That, and our eternal gratitude.
Thanks for your patience, we'll have some new stuff for you sooner than later.
Sorry for the lack of output in the past few weeks. We've been moving our editing setup and haven't had time to work on anything. To make it up for you, rather than giving you one Thursday video, we've cut two for your listening/viewing pleasure. OK, more like one and a half, as the second one is really just a single angle of drummer Keith Abrama playing the last song from our earlier Kayo Dot video, requested by the band. But the dude's amazing, so whatever.
This week's new video is a performance of "Cusp" from Seattle supergroup Dust Moth, who opened at the same show. We'll have more stuff from them to share in the coming weeks, as well as some footage of San Francisco's Kowloon Walled City, who played second that night.
In other SBP news, things may be a little slow for a few weeks, as we're working on a contract project for our friend, prolific SoCal videographer and occasional SBP contributor Arturo Gallegos, and a promotional video for SBP. We'll also finally have merch ready very soon and are working on some minor tweaks to the website.
