Still Taste It - album art

The Hangover Brigade is happy to announce that we’ll be playing a release show for our EP “Still Taste It” next Saturday, October 25th, at Milk Bar.  I’m incredibly pleased with how the EP has turned out, and I’m incredibly excited to get to share our new songs with you! We’ll be sharing the night with our good friends Blisses B, Cassandra Farrar and the Left Brains, and Becca Richardson.



Big Driver: score complete!

I’m delighted to announce that I’ve finished the score for Big Driver! There are just a few more steps of post-production to wrap up, and then we’ll get to sending the movie to a festival and theater near you soon!

Meanwhile, here’s a cover song that Tawnee & I recorded:



Burn

Just in time for Burning Man, here’s the band covering Ellie Goulding’s song Burn.

The Hangover Brigade (also now the Tawnee Kendall Trio, because who doesn’t want more names?) will be playing this song and a bunch of our originals at these upcoming shows:

8/20/2014, 8pm
Hotel Utah, $8
Supporting Alden Knight, w/ Xochitl

9/9/2014, 9pm
Brick and Mortar, $7 advance / $10 @ door
w/ Ezra Bell, Bevelers



I got to play for a proposal!

Tawnee and I were recently asked by a then-stranger named Brian to play some music while he proposed to his girlfriend Caroline at the Berkeley Rose Garden. This was easily one of my favorite things ever. It was a beautiful moment, and it’s been captured beautifully for you to see.



You Should Stop will be playing in SF in December

You Should Stop will be playing in SF at Another Hole in the Head on Sunday, December 15th.  I’m super excited that the film gets a festival run here in the Bay, and doubly excited that it’s poised to sell out a month and a half before it even goes up!  =D  The film was scored by me, and even includes one song by The Hangover Brigade.

Tickets are available here.



The Deli Magazine’s Band of the Month

The Hangover Brigade is The Deli Magazine’s SF artist of the month for October!

Thanks for voting for us, we really appreciate it!



Reviews for “When in Doubt” are in!

My score for When in Doubt has been called “intriguing” by SF Weekly, and “hypnotic” by the Huffington Post!  (Another paper called it “distracting”, though, so I’m 2 for 3.  Meatloaf would say that ain’t bad.)

I also get some studio time with the band to record a few songs this weekend, which I’m really looking forward to.



I like the way you ballet, no diggity, no doubt

This weekend, one of my collaborations with Post:Ballet will be showing at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.  The show, “Four Plays”, will be performed Thurs-Fri, July 18 & 19.  I’m delighted and honored to get to be part of Post:Ballet’s fourth home season, and especially to get my music played at YBCA’s swanky Lam Research Theater, which I didn’t think would happen until I turned at least 40 or so.  We even got a preview piece in the Huffington Post!  (That’s another awesome point in the interblogtoobworld.)

Now that my work with the ballet is in its final push, I get to turn my attention to the score of Big Driver, which is currently in post-production, on its way to the silver screen.

Work with The Hangover Brigade is proceeding swimmingly, as well.  We’ve got a handful of shows coming up at Club 23 in Brisbane, as well as Milk Bar and the Monarch in SF.  We’ve also recently posted videos of a couple new songs, and there are more on our YouTube page:

Exit Strategy:

No Diggity (omg yes)

Hope your summer is going well! Mine sure is! =D
