The weather in Oklahoma City was starting to turn icy, sleet falling down in the beginnings of the latest winter storm, but that didnt stop Rachel Brashear from taking the stage at the Blue Note to celebrate the release of her new EP. If you missed it, you missed out! She played a set of 12 songs, including all 6 songs from both of her EP’s. The band consisted of Nigel Moore on Bass and Robby Anderson on drums. This three-piece unit produced a huge, epic sound that rocked the building. Paperscisser opened the evening, playing an incredible half hour set. I recorded both sets professionally into Pro Tools, and I think I can say that I’ve completed mixing Rachel’s set today. I don’t really know what will be done with this recording, but I think it sounds great. I’d like to extend my thanks to the Blue Note for allowing us to record. Their engineers were so nice and so helpful. Also a thanks to Mark Quenzer for loaning me some of the equipment I used to capture the show. Maybe you’ll get to hear something from it. Seriously, you missed out!
The response towards the EP has been really great. Below you can hear what the radio hosts of The Oklahoma Rock Show had to say about it.
Once again, Rachel’s EP “Revolution” is now available on her bandcamp site digitally. If you’re interested in a physical copy, contact her or me and one of us can hook you up. Her next show will be at SXSW in Austin, so go to it if you can.
Them Apples played a great set opening for Dr. Pants on Friday night. Another great show you missed out on. If you ever get a chance to see them, go do it. They have great songs and great harmonies. It was my first time hearing and seeing Dr. Pants, and I have to say I’m a fan now. I can’t stop playing their album “The Trip”.
Until next time…
