Gig at the Baked Potato, 9ish PM on 11-20-12. Doors at 730. Two sets. Not only is this reason for holiday celebration, we will (likely) have discs of the new improvised sessions for sale! It’s called “Tsunami Jams”, and the only place available until we figure out what else to do with it. Come and support the band, the Spud, and live music in general.
News! We’ve been a little cagey about this, but since we got the master disc and artwork from our friend Donny Sarian (www.donaldsarian.com), we can announce that we’ve recorded a disc of improvised Ohm! If you go to the Iridium show it will be available (we’re getting them two days before), and will also have them at a Baked Potato show that is probably the day we get the disc. Though not meant to be an Ohm record “proper”, while recording the disc we’re working on, we had fun recording some improvs that came out pretty good. It’s called “Tsunami Jams”, and David Eagle, Pag, and CP pull off some pretty cool stuff. We hope to eventually make it available by mail order as well. Track list: 1. The Box, 2. The Grandstand Play, 3. Fools Die Twice, 4. Twenty-Four Karat Kill, 5. Ten Thousand Diamonds and a Heart, 6. No Bottles… No Cans… No People, 7. A Thousand Pardons- You’re Dead!
East coasters! Come see the crew at the Iridium, Friday, November 23rd. If we have enough folk there, we’ll surely get asked back. There’s also the possibility of a cool surprise for you at the gig, that I can’t really announce yet, only tease. For all those that’ve hit us up for gigs out there, now’s your chance! The Iridium site is here.
From CPs manager, Steve Bauer: “Chris is available for all sorts of studio sessions; nothing is to big or too small.
Chris has been contributing to everything from metal to even trance-type stuff. Prices are very reasonable and this is a chance to make your recording sound like no other with CP’s instantaneously identifiable, classy guitar playing.” If you want to get in touch with Steve, he’s at: email@example.com
Couple of weeks ago at the Spud, the crew played all the new tunes… except one, which has been written since that show (and we recorded it in the studio). If you come to Alva’s Showroom in San Pedro this Saturday night, you’ll likely get to hear them all! Live Ohm this Saturday: Alva’s link here.
New tunes, bomber size spuds, at one of the last great places for live music. Come see the crew burn it down and the world famous Baked Potato. Friday, September 14th. More info here.
New article interview/pic with Chris and Jake Cinniger (Umphrey’s McGee) of OHMphrey in the September 2012 issue of Guitar Player Magazine out now. They talk about the band and the making of the latest OHMphrey effort, Posthaste. http://www.guitarplayer.com/
