RPM Challenge kick-off

albany music coalition rpm kickoff 2013 logoThe Albany Music Coalition an RPM Challenge kick-off party lined up for this Friday (February 1) at Pauly's in Albany. Blurbage:

Bring your voices and instruments and join the Albany Music Coalition for an evening of collaborative, participatory sound as we all come together on February 1 to guarantee RPM success. The evening's work will be recorded and made available online shortly after the event.

And after that: Oobleck will be playing.

The RPM Challenge is a prompt to record an album (10 songs or 35 minutes) in the month of February. A bunch of local bands have participated in the past. One that comes to mind: The Parlor (then We are Jeneric), whose Hansel and Gretel: Stories from the Stove album ended up being highlighted by NPR's All Songs Considered.

The Albany Music Coalition event at Pauly's starts at 8 pm. It's free (and 21+).

My boyfriend put up a whiteboard in our shower (thinking he could get his ideas down while in the shower)- however the steam allows about 20 seconds of writing time- so now its more of a love note board- I love pulling back the shower curtain and seeing a cute drawing and note!
