Photos - The Fallout Shelter, 2/17/11

Last night's show at The Fallout Shelter was fantastic. Wings for Armor was a great time, but Roz Raskin and the Rice Cakes absolutely blew the doors off the place. None of us had really quite understood what we were going into (except Byers, since he was already a huge Rice Cakes fan and got us on the bill for that exact reason in the first place), but a cutesy folk-pop outfit they were not. They fucking rocked hard on some insanely prog-y shit that was all over the place.

They were also really insanely cool people and we talked to them for awhile afterwards and decided that as soon as we have shit to sell, we'll make a little week-long tour up the east coast and play with them around New England. They think that their hometown of Providence will really be into us, so that will be cool. The whole thing was just awesome, so if you missed it, that's too bad. At least you can take a look at some painfully artsy pictures from the show, courtesy of Carly's camera and no flash.

Thanks to everyone that came out to the show. We had a ton of fun and can't wait to do it again, whether in Aliquippa, Pittsburgh, Providence or anywhere that will have us. Especially if there's more free beer.

February 17th @ The Fallout Shelter

Exactly half of the band has no idea where exactly Aliquippa even is, but that's where we're headed on Thursday night to play with a fun little indie-folk kinda group called Roz Raskin & The Rice Cakes. They're a fun band that Evan and Byers have apparently played with before, so they invited us along for a night of fun this Thursday at The Fallout Shelter.

Naturally, we've got nothing else to bring with us than our discordant brand of stoner rock, so we'll be a perfect fit with their delicate melodies and whispering slide guitar. Right. We can hope the crowd keeps an open mind. Folk-pop fans don't seem like the types to whip beer bottles at the stage, but J.z.'s bringing his bike helmet just in case.

Seriously though, The Fallout Shelter is a great venue and we're pumped to be playing with a band as cool as the Rice Cakes. It's a ways away up there in Beaver County, but if you really want to tag along, we can probably find room for you in one of our cars! We promise we're safe drivers!

March 3rd @ The Aviary

Every other Thursday, the guys from The Aviary at 360 Ophelia Street do a "Music Night" which is a really low-key, nice open-mic thing, where people just post on their Facebook wall to get on the list and the music goes well into the night with everyone having a good time. So naturally, we wanted to ruin that.

Actually, the Aviary dudes (who just so happen to also be the Sleepy V dudes), are the sweetest bunch of guys in the world, or at least South Oakland, and invited us to come in with some of our favorite bands in the city and totally wreck the joint. So we're going to do just that on Thursday March 3rd with Ash Dinosaur, Coal Miner, and of course, Sleepy V themselves.

It's still a ways off, but we're just pretty excited about it. There aren't enough shows in South Oakland these days, and it's our mission to change that. We actually have some things in the works to do so, but it all starts with just one show, something like this one. So come out to see Low Man and all the other cool bands; come out to show your support for the growth of the South Oakland music community; come out to drink beers and hang with your friends... it don't matter none. Either way, we'd love to see you there.

A website!?

Holy shit, Low Man is all up inside your internet now. We've got a Facebook page and a blog... we're like Aerosmith or something. This is the place to be, ladies and gents. We've got show listings and links to shit and maybe we'll put up a picture or three when someone takes some of us. Maybe we'll even record some songs and put them up here for you to listen to. We have no idea.

This is where it'll all take place. Or maybe we'll never update this thing at all. That's the more likely end result here. But we spent like, thirty minutes on designing that logo up there, so the least you can do is stare at it for a few seconds, you ungrateful bastard. And come back and look at it every once in awhile. Maybe we'll change our background, who knows? Not us!

Really, though, we'll try to fill you up with goodness, so check back as we get things together. Shows are coming up, and with them come other cool things as well. We'll keep you in the loop and give you whatever you want in return for your undying love. We're kinda slutty like that. Let us know what you think. Or better yet, invite us to play somewhere. That would be awesome.
