Thanks to UnderCurrentMPLS for this video of our third Wednesday show at the Amsterdam. Only one more Amsterdam Wednesday left! Next week's co-stars are "The Dirty Pretty"; if you've not yet checked out the Max Corcoran Project, Tentacle Boy, or Lovecat, well, we have, and it's been a thrill to share the bill with each of them.
New toy alert: the Godin Grand Concert Duet Ambiance is blowing my brains. How a classical guitar and $1000s in condenser mics are hiding in an instrument that looks/plays like a Telecaster I don't know.
Come to the Amsterdam on Dec 28 and hear more. Do it for Humpday. Do it for cool music. Do it for the broodjes (I had no idea what they were either, and I guarantee you'll eat more than one). Happy Chanumas.
Thanks to UnderCurrentMPLS for posting this video of our first event at the Amsterdam Bar and Hall.
One of our brand-new songs!
You can hear us at the Red Stag Supperclub this Monday night, Dec. 12 at 9:30. We'll also be back at the Amsterdam every Wednesday this month. Shows start at 9pm. See you all soon!
Alright folks, here's the scoop: every Wednesday this December you can find Ashley Gold and band at the Amsterdam Bar and Hall. What does that mean? Band = Andrew Foreman (bass), Erica Burton (viola), Zach Schmidt (drums), and me (guitar).
The Amsterdam means an exciting new venue where music and socializing happen at night--in Downtown St. Paul.
Confused yet? There's more: starting this Wed at 9pm, we'll be performing alongside some very fun guests.
This week it's the Max Corcoran Project. Still puzzled?
Stop by 6 W 6th Street, St. Paul at 9pm this Wed and clear up all this confusion.
Here's the latest folks: "There and Bach" is now available as a digital download at http://garyleejoyner.bandcamp.com/
This is a guitar duet with folktronica wizard/avant man Gary Lee Joyner. Using a Bach invention as the source material, we improvised our way into a messy, gurgling, ambient landscape featuring drum loops and effects.
A fresh set of improvisations with Twin Cities iconoclasts Gary Lee Joyner and David Roos are now available
These segments document our first meeting as a trio. Three guitars, a "uni-string", novelty items, a Chinese horn, live loops, and an autoharp created these textures.
As an aside, I'm really loving the combination of the Electro-Harmonix Ring Thing and the Line 6 DL-4. Ring-modulation discord + ambient swell = chewy awesomeness.
