Gotta Minute? How 'Bout 54 Of Um - or - PT-Dubs Has A Live HD Video
Hi. I'm gonna do something I didn't think I would ever do. I'm gonna tell you my name. My name is Danger. Actually, Danger is my middle name. I live in a tiny apartment in Chicago and I fill my tiny apartment with instruments, tropical plants, bourbon, and laundry. As you might know, I play double bass in Paper Thick Walls. On June 1st, we did a live web-streaming performance through a super-pro recording studio called Audio Tree. They have just released two very slick HD videos of this session. One is the last tune that we played during that session called Liar's Lawyer, a tune that really gets my blood going. It is about 6 minutes. The other video is the entire hour long audio session. Take a minute if you got one and check out the links. I like to think that I have been waiting for this band all my life, but waiting implies that there was no work involved in getting to this point, which is the complete opposite of how PT-Dubs has worked. Quite literally, blood, sweat, and tears have gone into this band but the result is a musical collaboration between five amazing individuals, each bringing their one dump-truck full of talent, personality, dysfunction, and dedication to the collective. The whole out weighs the sum of the parts for all the right reasons. I will fight to the end to keep this life long dream of mine alive and this tight-knit cross-section of life-walkers from totally different paths together until the bloody, sweaty, tear-filled end. I enjoy it. I need it. I love it.
