A Life Of Possibilities

Yeah, so, erm, seemingly I neglected this for the entirety of 2010. Sorry about that. I’m going to be updating it far more frequently in 2011 so keep checking back ‘n’ tha’. Going to give this new fangled “blogging” malarky a crack – seems to be all the rage these days.

In terms of Pay For The Piano stuff, got some great gigs coming up from the likes of Frankie & The Heartstrings, Dananananaykroyd and Brother and got some exciting new PFTPR releases in the pipeline from Lifeless and Protectors amongst others.

Haven’t got much to say tonight, so I’ll just leave y’all with this video of The Dismemberment Plan at Webster Hall in New York from last weekend that I just stumbled across on youtube. I went to the gig. And it was amazing. Thank you to Big Ass Lens for uploading the vid.

I took some photos on my trip, feel free to check ’em out on Flickr:




Yeah, should have updated this sooner… but anyway… gig in Boro on Thursday upstairs at Doctor Browns – where else!? 1/2 of the line up is from New York, so come along and give them a lovely Teesside welcome… yeah?

Pay For The Piano Presents…


Minimalist-garage/art-punk all the way from New York. Imagine a beautifully haunting amalgamation of The Pixies,
My Bloody Valentine, Echo and The Bunnymen, The Walkmen, Dinosaur Jnr, Interpol and Sonic Youth.


Hartlepool superstars combining the finest elements of driving, gas and retirement. Two bassists.
One drummer. Too many cowbells. A melodica. Click your fingers. Like The Shins, but lower.


Ace new Boro band with more members than I’ve had hot proverbials. They remind these ears of
stuff like Arcade Fire, Guillemots, TANAOU, The Spinto Band, The Beta Band and The Band.


On tour with Werewolves, Brooklyn based singer-songwriter Vincent Cacchione will be opening
up the gig with a set of his mint Ted Leo meets Ryan Adams-esque indie folk. Awooga.

Thursday 2nd October upstairs at Doctor Browns in Middlesbrough.
7:30pm. £4. 18+. For more/less info: www.payforthepiano.co.uk

Werewolves sound amazing on the ol’ myspace – http://www.myspace.com/amsterdam – give them a listen and come down and see them live!
