My pals the Blue Rajas played 3 shows in 4 days this past week. It was their last batch of shows for a while, as drummer Gracie is heading off to college. For that reason (along with the fact that they were FINALLY playing someplace with decent lighting!), I decided to record as much as I reasonably could. This first video is for “Casanova Frankenstein and Mata Hari Zombie.”
18 April 2012 - The Blue Rajas performing “You’re Gonna Kill That Girl” at Strange Matter, RVA.
(I’ve given up recording before when other people have gotten in the frame. I think I’ve finally decided… fuck it. Just keep recording. The song is what matters. I probably should have tagged Robert in this though, because I think the first head that crossed my shot was his.)
Galaxy Girl hosting River City Limits on WRIR with a special performance by Hoax Hunters. A local music extravaganza featuring lots of bands I saw during Janetpalooza! Follow the link to stream or download the podcast.
In honor of International Women’s Day, they decided to cover a song “by a couple of awesome women.” If only I had realized what they were doing sooner and started recording faster! Here’s their cover of “Papyrus” by the Blue Rajas.
You can stream or download this week’s Thursday Breakfast Blend by following the link above. Today was a blend of psyche, soul, pop, garage, local & international tunes. Plus tunes from a few bands playing in town soon. And remembering Michael Davis of the MC5 and Christopher Reimer of Women. Lots to cover!
