BEFORE THE BRAVE NW TOUR

Before_The_Brave_Tour

I get bored super easy! So when I saw that Before The Brave was finally going on tour I told them “I want in!”

I’m not going to Lie … I may have begged a bit. It’s possible I may have been telling Jason Perry Stevens for months, “the second you go on tour … I want in!” I told him I would be his back up dancer, pr pro, merch babe, pack mule, anything the band needed.

SOLWAVE EXCLUSIVE FOOTAGE

Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom Did I hear correctly… You dropped out of college to focus on your band? If I did… I think that’s both awesome and horrible!!! (I’m not advocating it… but if they get famous… then they can simply say “I TOLD YOU SO!”) Solwave is an SF band that practices at […]

Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom The band is called Yalls, but he’s a band of one?! From the other side of Rock Make I speed walked past all the vendors to see what band was creating such an amazing collage of sounds. Upon arrival I realized the sounds I had been enjoying were coming from […]

CON BRO CHILL PLAYS PORTLAND

Con Bro Chill

Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom I don’t know where “Boom Town” is but I wish it was somewhere near SF. This last week I was in Portland for pleasure.

Picture 73

Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom  I know this isn’t a normal post for me!!! However… a couple days ago I was contacted by the PR agency of America’s Got Talent.

I STINK

Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom In 14 days we visited 7.5 states played 11 shows and showered approximately 5 times.

WHERE IN THE US IS…

Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom In 14 days I got to see a lot of flat lands, deserts and highways.. a lot that I had already been on in previous days. While seeing 7 states in 14 days was fun. I couldn’t help but think to myself (and sometimes out loud) that the routing was […]

Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom In 14 days we visited 7.5 states and played 11 shows. Which as you can imagine means we spent a lot of time in the van. Our tour started in San Francisco at Bottom of The Hill, the next day we were in Portland at Branx followed by shows in […]


IMPORTANT DISCOVERY

Laramie

Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom While on tour with I The Mighty, we visited a lot of states I never thought I would see. Never really wanted to see… but I learned a valuable lesson: When I told my friends I was going to Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska… I got the same response from […]


TAGGING THE WEST

san_francisco

      Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom Sticker marketing has become a standard way for bands and brands to leave their mark. I visited 7 states and they were all tag’d with stickers.

Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom I love getting photos of drummers… but sitting in the dark 10 feet behind the lead singer makes getting a good shot really hard!!! A couple months ago I purchased a GoPro camera to capture my notes at SF MusicTech. My friends made fun of me for using an HD […]

SLEEPING WHILE ON TOUR

Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom As I wake up on the floor of a random house in Spokane… I started thinking to myself how “rock & roll” this is!!! Last night we played a show at The Kave in Spokane. We had not scheduled a place to sleep after the Spokane show and before our […]

LIVE REVIEW: I The Mighty

I The Mighty

A few weeks ago a friend put me onto I The Mighty, a Californian progressive/alternative rock band in the same vein as Circa Survive and Saosin. I initially assumed the band must be based out of LA as many other up and coming alternative rock bands are. It was refreshing to find that the four-piece […]
