Fair Times :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice Drops Visual For ‘Bee Drowns In The Honey’

What do you do when you’re schedule to play the silent disco at Hill Country Fair VI, but you don’t want to wait until midnight to go out to the festival?  If you’re Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice, you drag some camera equipment out with you and go impromptu style on collecting moments.  Then you montage those moments over Bee Drowns In The Honey, your favorite song off of your latest release, Day For Night.  Then you share it with the world.  Enjoy!

Getting There :: Emcee Eats Shares F@mbly Practice Session For ‘I’m Coming Home’

Every time that Hill Country Fair rolls around, I get to thinking about bands like F@mbly.  This San Marcos-based outfit, made up of members of other projects and solo artists that all shared a common vision, rocked many a stage and party during the hey-day of the San Marcos music scene, and as the Hill County Fair became the institution that it is today, their reunion shows for the event became something to look forward to.  This year, the crew will not be rejoining (on the stage, anyway), so in order for their energy to not be completely missed, Emcee Eats shared a recording of a practice session for one of the band’s popular stage numbers, I’m coming home.  Hearing the band in raw, measured form, rather than their all or nothing stage style, is a refreshing look into their process and the way that the members all gel.  Check it out, leave a like and a comment, and share it with someone that used to hang around back in the day… let them know you miss them and you’re thinking about them.
