Steinomite show in Vegas 3/22/12

March 23, 2012

hey mom!

last night Steinomite performed at Artifice in downtown Las Vegas.  the show kicked off the Neon Reverb festival that runs all weekend around town, and was hosted by the always hilarious Voki Kalfayan as “Bill Stevens.”  the bill consisted of Steinomite, my new friends Wazu from NYC, David Liebe Hart backed up by a rawk(!) power trio, and Penny and Melody from Absinthe doing a croony and funny duo show called “Sista’s from another Mista.”

’twas a really fun and pretty weird night.

i drove from L.A. with only about an hour to spare, having forgotten the cable i need to connect my iphone/band.  but, after giving me some shit, the soundman came up with one.  Steinomite was on first, and despite getting more shit from the soundman, started a little late to make sure the “sista’s” and some other folks were there.  i had to come out swinging to get people from the bar to the dance floor, but it worked!  got a great response and got some booties shak’n.  even mister grumpy soundman gave me props afterwards and apologized for his battitude.  BAM!

show highlights:

1.  in honor of Penny from Absinth, i used a sock puppet for some talk-back and nay-saying, and eventually beat the $h!t out of him.

2.  spent most of “alien abductapohone” lying on the stage.

3.  got people to do weird dance moves.

4.  made a new outro for this show, introducing the next acts and promoting my website IN THE SAME TRACK!  i pre-recorded the singing and had the puppet do it.

listen to it NOW!

after the show i accidentally hung out in a casino hotel bar until 4:45a.  i felt like i was in a Terry Gilliam movie.

BUT I AM OK!

love,
