Via Audio & Someone Still Loves you Boris Yeltsin : Hard to Find a Friend's Backstage Sessions


Via Audio & Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin
The Hi-Tone
Memphis, Tn
April 29, 2008

This was the funnest session we've ever done. We spent 2 days in Memphis: seeing movies, trying to find vegetarian food (apparently hard to do in Memphis - one girl responded with "yeah, we have salad...and chicken), going to the park, Stax, and watching music. The sessions were crazy, Via Audio & SSLYBY performing each other's songs together as a super group of sorts, banging on pots and pans, cheese graters, basketballs, guitars, and singing into fans. We shot a lot of footage which we'll edit into a mini-doc of sorts soon. There are also some fun covers to enjoy below...

thanks for these.

Thank you. These are great.

I have to point out, though, that the song/video you have labeled "I Can't Focus" is actually "Hazmat".

Jessica said...

Thank you, Ako, but the song IS, in fact, called "I Can't Focus". A little mix-up around the time we pressed the record has caused this ongoing confusion. Thanks for pointing it out though! But now you can be in on the secret.

It figures that my copy of the record would be the thing that's wrong, wouldn't it? Oh well.

Wow... this is amazing. This is the type of live music that should be recorded and put on a record. Very well done. I will be loving these videos for a long time.

Awesome post.

Thanks for sharing this intimate little session. Both bands played great sets here in DC and really seemed to enjoy sharing the stage. I'm sure they will look back on this tour with many fond memories.

Just fantastic!

I was lucky enough to be one of the eight or so people who were at the Memphis show, and it was really great. Is that really what the back room looked like? Amazing.
