Dog Eaters

Our hearts are heavy…

Nick Gillespie, a Black Dog Clan member, was killed in an avalanche while skiing in Wyoming. It was the last run of the last day of a ski trip.

Nick worked fire rescue (the civilian equivalent of Delta Force — without the guns) at Yellowstone Park and later built walls on the hiking trails. Great guy, he will be missed.

Nick had just turned 30…

Needing a drink?

Waiting for the word that Dog Eaters, the graphic novel, is in comic books stores. I have heard that copies will be on the shelves on Wednesday, Feb 6…

Until then, I could use a drink.

If I drank…

Dustin and Beach House @ Shibuya Liquid Room

Posted on 01.22.13 under Beach House, Dustin Wong

Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand started Beach House as a recording project in Baltimore. They are a Pitchfork favorite, rating their albums in the top 20 in 2006, 2008, and 2010. They perform and tour with drummer, Dan Franz. Dustin met them in Baltimore as a member of Ponytail when they were both starting out. Ponytail has since disbanded and Dustin is now a solo act with the name, Dustin Wong.

Dustin recently moved from Bushwick, Brooklyn to Tokyo. He has just finished recording his yet-to-be-named 3rd album. It will be released in America through Thrill Jockey and in Japan through Art Union/Plancha. It should be out later this year. Please keep your eye out for it!

A stark face in the crowd.

French-born Victoria Legrand.

Alex Scally plays sitting down because he is also playing the bass with foot pedals. Can’t see that from the audience, though…

Beach House makes their own set backgrounds and custom lighting. Alex packs and unpacks it every show. This tour started with six dates in Australia, went to South Korea and then Osaka and Tokyo. Next they swing through Europe and then to America, finishing in late April.

Dustin offers thanks and appreciation.

In comic book stores from Jan 23, 2013!
