Espresso Yourself Cafe show, next week….

Hey everyone,

We have a show at the Espresso Yourself Cafe in Powell Ohio next Thursday. We will be playing from 8 to 9. That’s right, we will be making Mocha waves at the cavern of Espresso once again!  We’re excited that Eric invited us back and we can’t wait to see you there.

Gorilla Session update!!

Just this past week I, the low frequency echo-communicator, paired up with THE ‘Ape of Wrath’, Drumbuie, for a gorilla section rehearsal. Any Anthropologist worth their salt would confirm that often times when the six string sapien is away hunting, gathering, or playing in caverns for inspiration, the rhythm section of the species, myself and Drumbuie, would get together for a Gorilla session.

This very thing happened last week and it went smashingly (literally at times).  We needed to hum the six string sapiens parts, which sufficed without impressing, but we made due. Our preternatural ability to keep solid beat and rhythm allows us to function in this capacity, although the tone of the product is never meant to be heard without all three working parts. We ran through a couple new cover tunes we have been polishing.  There is nothing like paying homage to those who pay homage to you by playing an artform you created! After this we worked on a new orignial tune that we are excited to bring to the masses. It is a moving chart that doesn’t let you catch your breath. We also combined for an alternate version of the Apes of Wrath duet, as when left to our own vices the gorilla section always goes primitive and returns to the ‘beat rhythms on things’ ritual.

Espresso Yourself show wrap-up (v 2.0)

Hello fellow simians,

Unfortunately our servers fritzed on us and we lost our original show update, so I am attempting it again. Sometimes we surfeci don’t fully grasp servers and other modern conveniences. Our ‘servers’ and ‘blog spots’ involved sun-bleached fish bones, ground up dahlia petals and the nearest flat rock… Anyway…. The show last month was a success. Eric at Espresso Yourself Cafe has put together an awesome venue for modern humans, and your favorite surfing hominids, to express themselves musically and artistically. After a rousing acoustic set by Eric himself, Australosurfecus began their mellifluous set full of social-ritual dancing and primordial rhythms.

The set began with a Rumble, as usual, and the crowd was rocking from the first chordata to the last. What followed was 16 songs full of energy and passion. We Australosurfecus simply return to a time when all we worried about was food, shelter, and making music and from that space our music flows. We ended on Apes of Wrath, where once again Drumbuie showed the world why our species was so revered. With rhythmic talent like he possesses being biologically passed down, it’s pretty shocking we faded from the hominid landscape.

Thanks again to those who joined us. We hope to do it again soon.
