Another band, another Kickstarter

Kickstarter season keeps rolling on! This time it is Von Strantz, another band we discovered at Audiofeed a few years back. We enjoyed the band's rawness and quiet intensity. 

The album "Apple of Your Eye" is scheduled for digital release in September, The purpose of the campaign is to generate pre-orders, as well as to raise funds to press the album onto vinyl. 

The band's kickstarter campaign can be found here. Here is a video of a performance of their song, "Nothing Good in Me," to give a sense of their music.

Audiofeed 2016 - Sunday

Sunday was a bit rainy, and that greatly limited our time at the fest. And the late Saturday night combo of One Bad Pig & Timbre also wore us down a bit.

Sunday started with another Imaginopolis seminar, this one by Melody Green about the intersections between Christianity and fairy tales. Then our old friend Harry Gore did a set, and we watched an energetic performance by Destroy Nate Allen.

We also spent some time wandering the merchandise area, and my wife had a lovely chat with a few very nice fellas from the very loud band Send the Advocate.

We spent the evening in town, and had some terrific pizza. A good end to a good fest, and we drove home on Monday, July 4, arriving home just in time to catch some local fireworks.

We have made a habit of attending Audiofeed every other year, so it may end up back on the agenda for 2018.

John Crist's "Church Hunters"

Comedian John Crist is one of the few people in the Christian comedy scene who manages to be consistently ... funny. We have a few of his prior comedy videos here. And here.  

In this new video, he goes after the idea of "church shopping," by comparing the process of finding a new church to shopping for a new house. It's "Church Hunters," episode 1. 

Episode 2 is available at John Crist's web site, as are a range of other humorous videos.
