aberden botch south by southwest showcase

the chain of events goes something lik this… johnny gets brian drunk on cheap margaritas, who then screws up the new song enough to throw off beth who gracefully screams at at the top of her lungs to stop the song and start over, causing us to have to cut our grand finale. and who really suffers in all this? john’s poor guitar, who finds itself hurled to the floor of the stage upon ending ‘sink or float’. i guess someone had to get it. don’t you feel like you feel like you were there???


aberdeen to appear on buffy the vampire slayer.

we recently taped a performance on the set of buffy, performing two songs, “sink or float” and “cities & buses” from ‘homesick and happy to be here’.

John Aberdeen explains “…we got to spend the better part of a thursday morning pretending to sing our own songs while people who would not be within a square mile of our real show pretended to dance to music we were not playing while ‘willow’ pretended to get continually hit on by a new ‘slayer’. it was a blast! I love hollywood.”

the episode airs: tuesday february 4th, 8pm et/pt on your local UPN affiliate.


enough with the playing already! aberdeen and trembling blue stars one night only at Spaceland in Los Angeles (1/10) while Beth is in town for the taping of our performance on Buffy the Vampire Slayer…more to come…
