Back catching up on a few things today after a week away. If you ever get to Las Vegas I highly recommend the Beatles themed, LOVE Cirque Du Soleil show, it is excellent. A little lighter on the acrobatics than your usual Cirque Du Soleil show but chock full of cool special effects and rare Beatles audio snippets.

I had left you all with a nice mix to tide you over for the week while I was away, if you’re wondering where it went, well apparently it was too good and got BOS smacked with it’s first DMCA takedown notice, causing Google/Blogspot to immediately pull the post. I can’t repost the songs, but for those of you who missed it, here’s the playlist.

I Party, You Party, We All Party Down
Eli “Paperboy” Reed And The True Loves – (Doin’ The)Boom Boom [Roll With You]
James Hunter – She’s Got A Way [The Hard Way]
The Clash – Wrong ‘Em Boyo [London Calling]

Our friends in Canadian Invasion have also been busy this week, their excellent new album Three Cheers For The Invisible Hand is now set for a February 2009 release date and graphic artist Melinda The Martian has created a video for the title track. They’ve also put together a Phillies fight song to help usher the Phils into a World Series win against Tampa Bay. Check ’em out.

In the help wanted column, bass players in Brooklyn take note, I Am The Heat is looking for a new bass player. Heres’ the scoop from their myspace blog:

Looking for a Bassist!
Category: Music

Sadly, Anthony has left the band to pursue his endeavors as an all-star graphic designer. He will be missed. So we’re going to finish up these last few shows with him and in the meantime, we’re looking to fill his shoes. Here is the ad we’re posting everywhere:

WE ARE:
A fun, catchy, raucous, danceable indierock quartet (including you). We gig 1-2 times per month to an ever-increasing crowd of friends and fans. Our live show is awesome. We practice twice a week in WB. We have an UNSHARED lock-out that’s really nice!

We’ve self-released 2 EPs and gotten some very positive feedback (http://www.iamtheheat.com/press/). We’re currently spending our time compiling material for a full-length record. And we’ve recently filmed for the Fearless Music TV show – our spot should air in a month or so. . Things are going well…

YOU ARE:
– accomplished bassist
– comfortable writing collaboratively (we really stress this – we write as a band)
– ability to quickly learning a set’s worth of existing material
– energetic, enthusiastic, and dedicated
– someone who loves to hang out/party/etc. We love fun. You should too. We’re all good friends, blah blah blah.
– someone who will take this serious. We all have full-time jobs, but we do intend to start taking small tours (days, not weeks) within the next few months.

* ability to sing backing vocals is a plus!

This is a great opportunity to join a rad band with some fantastic momentum. If you are interested, please check out the tracks we have online (links below) and then message us with some juicy details about YOU! Influences? Best show you’ve ever seen? Best show you’ve ever played? Links to previous bands are welcome!

Please note: at this time we are only looking for bass players.

Have a fantastic day!
xoxo,
I am the Heat
