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.)
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.
