December is almost here, and we’re looking forward to the upcoming winter months. Thursday, December 9 we play the Larimer Lounge; a favorite place of mine to jam. I feel like that place gives me the real-life rock star experience: I get to stand in the dark with a full sound system, stage lights, and I get to blast my own music at jet-engine noise levels. Another reason it’s exciting: we also get to show off our new t-shirts and hats for sale that night.
The Larimer Lounge isn’t the first nor only thing slotted for the darkest month of the year; this Friday we’re revisiting San Luis Sound – a recording studio set up in an old pipe organ rehearsal space in the midst of suburban Broomfield. San Luis Sound is run by local recording wizard Joe Turse, with whom we have worked before on our last two recorded tracks: “Try For You,” and “Know Me Well.”
After the studio and Larimer Lounge, we’re off the rest of the year (so far), and then we start strong in January, playing Ned Kelly’s once again.
It’s been a great year for SFoM – the best so far. If our past is any indicator, we’re up for some big things in 2011. What’s awesome is that we’ve worked to create in 2010, and that’s what we’re gonna carry with us into next year. SFoM is becoming something tangible; not just a band you see at a bar.
These are the days of our lives.
