In preparation for tomorrow night’s Black Friday: Nine Inch Nails Tribute with LAVOLA and The Craven, we’ve been blasting our top NIN tunes in the office all day. Let me tell you, it’s incredibly distracting to listen to Trent Reznor’s nightmarishly soothing voice and try to write press releases at the same time (“May 26th at Green Room we have I want to f**k you like an animal great performance by….” ).
I went around the office today to ask my co-workers what their favorite NIN track was. This was their responses…..
Thanks to everyone who came out for Digital Love’s birthday party. It was great seeing so many familiar faces and meeting a slew of new people. As some of you that attended already know, the Digital Love mixtape CDs ran out quickly; however, if you weren’t able to nab a physical copy last Thursday or couldn’t attend for whatever reason, you’re in luck. For your streaming and downloading pleasure, we’ve digitized the CD and uploaded it on Mediafire for download. Although the beautiful album artwork (see above) does not transfer over to mp3s, all the local tunes are there. I hope you enjoy and continue to come out to Green Room to enjoy live local music.
Here’s to another fun year of Digital Love Thursdays!
Lately, I’ve been handing out Green Room records all willy-nilly. Believe it or not, we do keep a log of certain statistics. The log is called the Greeness Book Of Records and it contains records such as Most Individual Art Pieces Sold (tie: Sole Del Real & Chris Hill), Most Radio-Active PBRs Consumed (tie: FTLCollective.com’s Fat Hand and DJ Mig’s cousin), and Most Times Getting Kicked Out By Green Room Security (you know who you are). West Palm Beach band Lavola holds the title of Most Times Performing At Green Room (6), and that’s totally cool with us. Interestingly enough, for as much as we enjoy this band, they have actually never headlined a Gallery Saturday, and it’s not like they haven’t paid their dues. Last May, the band was slotted to play at 5pm on the New Times stage inside Green Room. 5PM!?!? Now that I think of it, they also hold the not-so-awesome record for Earliest Set Time At Green Room (logging it in the book right now).
Fresh off “the best sets Lavola has ever had the pleasure of playing” and adding new drummer Jeff Rose of Young Circles/Blonds fame, the indie rock trio appears to be re-invigorated and motivated to keep the momentum going. Always expect a great live show from these guys; expect an even wilder one this weekend. Take a listen to their highly-acclaimed Leaving Paris EP. Stream it, download it, then make sure to pass it on to to a friend. It’s that good.
Lavola performs at midnight, The Adam David Band plays at 11pm. DJs Mig & Andie Sweetswirl, The Reckless Dames. $2 PBRs. No cover. Doors at 9pm. (event page)
