"Bandalabra is a band from Seattle, composed of musicians who are pursuing a rhythmic path towards enlightenment. Fela sees Steve Reich in Rock's backyard is a way of imagining the future. Join us. Music examples can be heard on our myspace page, and facebook page. There's joy in repetition. Thank you."

Skerik (saxophone, efx)
Dvonne Lewis (drums)
Evan Flory-Barnes (bass)
Andy Coe (guitar)

Sparky says: This band kicks some SERIOUS ass -> check it out, yo!

Bandalabra also initiated a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to mix/master their new multi-track live record. In just a few hours they have already raised over 25% of their goal -> more info at the link below, I hope you will please consider kicking in a few dineros to support this project, you won't be disappointed!

I went for the $75 level which includes cd, admission for 2 and a mystery _____ prize -> what could it be?! Can't wait to find out!!

I'm already trying to round up as many Bham folk to join me for the Conway Muse date! It's a Thursday, but isn't Thursday just another Friday that couldn't wait?

LOL - easy for YOU to say!
I'm already planning to do 4 shows in 3 states... plus there are other bands/shows I want/need to see in that 2 week time period. Plus I kicked down for the $75 "mystery" prize which Skerik confirmed that _____ with the band is indeed codespeak for ______ with the band!! That could take days to recover from, LOL!

Seriously though... am *totally* psyched & grateful that I live where these guys call home!!

VERY cool about the vinyl thang, always a nice touch imho.

I wish some of these bands would come to the east coast where I could experience them. McTuff, Taint, Bandalabra, etc... never seen 'em :(

At least we've been getting DKGs once or twice a year for the last few. 8)

i paid the $75 as well and i will probably have to come out to the west coast to see the show and get my ______ on with the band. so between a flight and a place to stay and transportation from the venue to the airport ect... its not gonna be cheap.
anyone know if any of these venues are near any air ports?

some shows/venues are definitely closer to major airports than others

does it matter which day of the week the show you choose is? ie., Portland OR might be a good one but it's a Thurs night. I don't know anything about the So Cal venues but SF north I know something about many of them. I can help try to figure something out that will work for you...

thursday might be so bad, fri, sat are better but i can swing a thurs or sun i think.
i don't think i will make it to a CA show cause flights will be priced high most likely. not sure about other places yet. what shows are you hitting up?
