The 11th Annual Art Director’s Club of Denver Paper Fashion Show just took place on April 10, 2015. Among the many in attendance was SFoM’s bass player, who took footage from the event of Sakura Lab’s “Siren’s Call” dress and edited it together with an instrumental track from SFoM’s upcoming studio project.
For those curious, this is an instrumental version of a song called “Reason to Sin.” The designers of the dress were Tricia Smith, Angela Mavers and Richard Smith. The ADCD Paper Fashion Show is a fundraising benefit for the Downtown Aurora Visual Arts program.
We laid down “Steady As She Goes” by The Raconteurs while warming up before a recent recording session. This cut is a little rough around the edges, but then again, Weezer made a career from sounding like that. We’re not Weezer though. We’re SFoM, and we are mighty. (Not that Weezer isn’t.)
Well, not really… but there are some similarities between the new Pearl Jam video for “Mind Your Manners” on their upcoming Lightning Bolt release, and this old video of us playing “Final Ride of the Ghost King” at the Skylark a few years back. It’s probably our “artiest” video, if you’ll permit me to make up a word to describe it.
Here are the videos for you to compare for yourselves:
Olde Town Arvada better get ready for some Olde Time Rock ‘n’ Roll… It won’t be at Ye Olde Tavern, but The 12 Volt Tavern – A venue so electrifying, they invoked the idea of a car battery when they named it.
Come down to 7514 Grandview Ave., Arvada on Saturday to rock out! While you’re there, be sure to get your hands on some t-shirts and stickers to show everybody you Support Local Music! Limited edition CD’s available too!
Thanks to everyone who attended this memorable event! We had a blast as we got a glimpse of the next level in the rockstar game. Thanks to Eugene’s Axe for organizing such a great show, and thanks to 8 Foot Orphan for playing “Achilles Last Stand.” Thanks to The Fox for letting us use the stage to display what we’ve been working on in basements and bars for these last six years or so. Rock on!
Thursday, October 11 – 8 pm, SFoM will share the stage with our friends in Slight Return – Denver’s Premier Hendrix Tribute Band…two great local acts ready to put on a good show at a venue we’ve always wanted to play.
Yeah, so we’re playing some gig tonight. I think the show has already started. Music, beach volleyball, chicken wings, beer… it’s all there at Gibby’s Sports Saloon in Aurora. We take the stage at 7:45 pm.
