All Young Girls Are Machine Guns - Maple Street (Live at The Waiting Room Lounge 08.10.12)

So, while we’re figuring out when and how we’re going to distribute it (because, you know, there’s an actual cd coming out at the end of September), you should know that Jeremy Garrett is a king and has provided us with a gem of a live recording.

Benson, Nebraska, this one’s for you. 

Recorded, Edited, Mixed, and Mastered by Jeremy Garrett

Benson Up! All Night by Aaron Shipp for The Heavy Duty ⇢

We played Benson’s 125th Anniversary last Saturday night. This is Aaron Shipp’s take on the night. It’s not a review per se, but he does manage to throw some nice and accurate words our way.

I’ve got to lose this buzz of the blues. So, when the sun goes down, down in Benson town when you come around, I’ll ask you to play.

So, it just dawned on me. Like, just. It dawned on me that normal people don’t bake cupcakes and take them to a bar. That is not a thing that regularly happens among people who work in a cubical all day, or with children in a daycare or what have you. Unless possibly there is a birthday. Other than that, baking and bar time very rarely intersect.
However, I am a musician, and Open Mic Nights can become like family dinners if done right. So, tonight, I called up all my lady musician friends, and said, “Hey, Open Mic has been a sausage fest lately, let’s take over and I’ll bring some sort of baked good.” So, instead of baking cookies and taking them to work, I baked cupcakes and walked into Barley Street Tavern with an instrument strapped to my back, ready to sing.
It was a good night. I saw all the gals. Hung with the bartender. Pet Shooter, the bar cat. And although to random patrons, I looked a bit silly, really it was like walking into my living room with a glass of milk and some cookies, only it was a Colorado Bulldog and a cupcake.

So, it’s a crap picture taken from my cell, but that was my view of the Concert for Equality. I was actually sitting across the street at Mia’s Bongo Room on a lawn chair soaking up Gillian Welch, Cursive & Despadoritos. Good, free times. Here’s to being a Bensonite.

This One’s For KDYLDY…

I live in Benson, a block away from Jake’s and The Waiting Room. I woke up from my after-work nap and the first thing I hear when I go outside to my porch with my barbecue chicken is Conor Oberst w/Bright Eyes shouting “I’m wide awake, it’s morning!”

No joke.

I love where I live.

So, for those of you who follow me who live in Omaha, I want you to know that All Young Girls Are Machine Guns is playing at The Waiting Room tonight at 8:10 pm for the OEAA Summer Showcase. That is NOT a battle of the bands. It is three blocks, five local venues with at least local five bands per venue. Tonight and tomorrow you pay one price to get into every venue and see every band you wanna. You should come to this.
Not only should you come to this, you should come to SEE ME PLAY THE WAITING ROOM. Also, you should SUPPORT LOCAL MUSIC. We’ve got some good stuff goin’ for us here in The Big O.

All Young Girls Are Machine Guns - This Old Piano

I wrote this song months and months ago. I was waiting to do the video until I had someone to duet with, but there has been no one to duet with, so, here ya go.

Playing a show with Vincent Elliot at PS Collective Thurs, April 29th. There will be beards and gingers. It’s almost like a Viking Parade.
PS. Viking Parade needs to be a band name.
