The New BellerBytes #81: December House Concert Tour & New “View” Remixes At Bandcamp
Monday, August 23rd, 2010
Just got back from the wild and wacky tour of the Carolinas…first time to Asheville and many other NC/SC locations, plus a swing up to Virginia, and a vacation in the Smoky Mountains. All great fun. Supercool folks all along the way. Where am I again? Oh yeah – home.
Now it’s time to talk future stuff once again, and so I present to you the latest BellerBytes. Click here for the full dose. (And as always, just go here to have these fine missives sent straight to your inbox!)
There’s two big headlines in the latest blast. One – Kira Small and I are heading to Florida in December for a house concert tour. So Florida people, if you’re interested in having us come to your living room, just write me and say so, and we’ll take it from there. There’s lots more info in the full BellerBytes as well.
Second, I just posted full-blown remixes of the tunes “Seven Percent Grade” and “Get Things Done” from my first album “View.” Remixing “View” is just something I’ve wanted to do for a while, so I thought I’d test the waters with these two tracks. And I posted them on Bandcamp, which is a cool download service that allows you to pay whatever you want for the music. For those who’ve owned and appreciated this record for a while, I really think you’ll enjoy these two remixes.
Click here for the “Seven Percent Grade” remix, and click here for the “Get Things Done” remix.
Now it’s off to battle the brown recluse spiders in our basement. Nashville, I love ya, but man, you got some critters going on up in here.
BellerBytes #80: Southern Summer, SoCal In September – And Seeking Seattle!
Thursday, August 5th, 2010
This is a cute way of saying I just sent out a new e-mail newsletter. It’s got stuff about the August Kira Small/Bryan Beller tour of Atlanta and The Carolinas, some early September stuff in Nashville, the one-show-only Keneally/Beller “Same Band” reprise gig in Los Angeles on 9/15, and a metric ton of info about the Big Ass Cross-Country Tour that Kira and I are embarking on this October and November.
You can see it all by clicking right here.
One of the biggest takeaways in that e-mail is that, basically, the whole Kira/Bryan October/November tour is booked, with one glaring exception:
Seattle, Saturday 10/30
If you’re in Seattle and you’re even thinking about hosting a house concert, now’s the time. Just e-mail me here and I’ll answer any questions you might have. Or if you know of a venue that we really should play (hint: intimate, quiet rooms good; loud, noisy bars bad), please hip us to it. Especially if you have a connection there.
Aside from that, we’re getting ready to leave the homestead for another 15 days, starting this Friday in Chattanooga, followed by a double-header clinic/gig in Atlanta. Then it’s over to a day off in Savannah, GA, followed by a first-ever gig in Columbia, South Carolina. As usual, the calendar page has all the info. I don’t think it’s ever been this packed with gigs. Ever.
My fingers are tired again. This happens on BellerBytes day. I shall now rest them for the coming days…
