Swim Herschel Swim: It’s Happening

This is on. We are playing a reunion gig on July 14, 2012. We are playing with Stretch Armstrong, a band we played with damn near every Provo show from 1991-1993. That’s not to ignore the other two acts; Insatiable, another band we played a ton with back in the day, and 2 and a Half White Guys. To say that I’m excited would be an understatement. The last time I took the stage with the Herschel boys was 1995, a full two years after we broke up and about 12 months after we released the CD, Burn Swim Burn. I’m also terrified. A lot. I haven’t performed onstage in a very long time and I’m working on securing rehearsal space, a new axe (a rental or a hybrid made from discarded 1980s synths) and something called chops. I’ve done a single rehearsal with our original guitar player and it went much better than I expected in terms of figuring things out. The bigger issue for me is finding a decent organ sound and a decent piano sound. I can fake the synth sounds or resurrect my original keyboard that I still have from the founding days of Herschel: The Cheesemaster 2000.

Tickets can be purchased here. $12 pre-show, $15 day of. Looking forward to this.
