Memory Lane :: ‘The San Martian Project’ Trailer Hits The Internet

It’s hard to be a part of the San Marcos culture and not be familiar with the huge impact the Triple Crown had on the entire scene.  Currently, only the memories of this wonderful bar remain, but The San Martian Project is looking to change that by documenting the history and the stories surrounding this legendary location.  Hopefully this trailer can tide you over until the full project hits the airwaves.

Patiently Waiting :: A Heartfelt Tribute To Triple Crown

Many wonderful souls grazed the hallowed stage of Triple Crown‘s former location in San Marcos, TX.  That location is currently under development as the town prepares itself for its first building over 3 stories tall that isn’t on the Texas State campus.  Meanwhile, Triple Crown new location rumors have been buzzing all around the town.  While we all wait for what we know will be its triumphant return, CPC Films and SMFC Productions have been working on a documentary to show homage to some of those good times from the past.

In the immediate days after the closing of Triple Crown, up to the date it was finally completely demolished, many musicians would gather in front of the location to sing songs and reminisce about the good times.  This video is an attempt to capture the spirit of those gatherings, and it does it quite well.

New Mix Available!

Here’s a new mix… straight from last Monday’s DoomsdayMonday at Triple Crown.  Lots of instrumental gems on this one, with a few new and old songs sprinkled among them.  I feel this set is strong enough to represent me as more than a mere live mix.  Listen, share, download and enjoy!  Free for all, donations are gladly accepted.

Many thanks to the homeboy DJ Alpha and his baby Monkey Biz Media for this gem.  Lots of heat on this one, including some good footage of Electric Mayhem and yours truly, performing “Misfit Therapist” a ways before the album came out.  Enjoy!

Big Week of Shows :: See Chief!

This week is full of good shows, with lots of variety amongst them.  There will be four opportunities to see me perform this week, and believe me, they are all worth the time…

Monday : Electric Mayhem will be holding our final Monday installment, and it will feature live drums by Patrick Montgomery.  The show takes place at Triple Crown (206 N. Edward Gary), and after this one, it will be solo Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice sets with occasional guest DJs.

Tuesday : The following night will be the CD release party for “It/ll Be Better Tomorrow”, and it will feature the amazing stylings of Henry + The Invisibles.  For those who need a reminder:

This is definitely a DO NOT MISS show… and it’s a great chance to support two local giants on the music scene.  This show also takes place at Triple Crown.

Thursday : One door closes, another opens, they say… Monday marks the end of Electric Mayhem as a weekly entity, but you can still catch the duo every first Thursday at Tantra Coffee House.  This is the inaugural show, and you better believe there will be more to come…

Saturday : Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice return to Firehouse Lounge (Austin) for some exploratory sound sessions.  No cover, good tunes, and cheap drinks… what more can you ask for?
