Me and my video-keytar on a national tour with Ice Balloons!
Super excited to be embarking this week on a cross-country tour with Ice Balloons, a “neuvo supergrupo” that’s fronted by a human fly and features Seans from Samiam and FuckEmos, Kyp from TV on the Radio, Rob and Dan from Wild Yaks, Giselle from Midnight Masses and yours truly on the video-keytar. 
I love being a part of this band. We truly have a fantastic time together as this is already our second tour this year, but this time we’re hitting the west coast and beyond! I would love to see some familiar faces out on the road! And if you have friends who are into psychedelic visuals and/or strange noise rock, please send them to us! Here are the dates:
 
5/7 Cleveland @ Happy Dog (supporting King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard)
5/8 Cincinnati @ MOTR Pub
5/9 Detroit @ Los Corrales
5/10 Grand Rapids @ The Bunker
5/11 Chicago @ Beat Kitchen
5/12 Milwaukee @ Cactus Club
5/13 Minneapolis @ Turf Club
5/14 Fargo @ Dempsey’s Public House
5/16 Seattle @ 2 Bit Saloon
5/17 Portland @ High Water Mark
5/18 Reno @ Ampersand
5/19 SF @ the knockout

5/26 Houston @ Mangos
5/28 New Orleans @ Siberia
5/29 Memphis @ The Buccaneer
5/30 Lexington @ Sidecar

 
 
And here’s what the press is saying about us:
 
10 Best Bands of 2013 – New York Observer

“brilliant band of bizarros” –Village Voice

“This lurching, fuzzed-out act – fronted, naturally by a half-man, half fly creature–is just the thing to make you feel you’ve stepped into another dimension, especially when accompanied by B.A. Miale’s trippy projections.” –New York Observer

“el futuro de la musica” –Indie Rocks, Mexico

Ice Balloons' set was a nonstop assault of aural and visual insanity. They are a surrealistic painting come to life.” - Gaper's Block, Chicago
 
And thank you Meredith Fraser and Panache Booking for dreamweaving this tour together! http://www.panacherock.com/artists/ice-balloons
 
Of course they’ll be a NYC show (or 4) once we get back as well! 
 
Thanks for reading and have a fantastic spring!

Seven years ago last week I discovered you can live mix video on a keytar, after making a joke about it. Seven years ago today I did it on stage for the first time at the Lucky Cat (before it was grand victory or bruar falls), where this shot was taken. Seven years later 90% of people are still totally confused about what the hell I’m doing and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Happy anniversary keytar!
