I Helped Bazan Make A Record!

The sales period has ended.

The shirts and discount coupons will be shipped this week and next week. We’ll let you know as soon as we have news on the album release date and when the CDs and LPs will be shipping to you in 2011.

Thanks for your support!

David is making a new album right now! The songs are all there, recording is underway! We are shooting for a Spring 2011 release. Barsuk gave him dough to pay for dudes to play on the record and some gear upgrades to make it sound great. But in order to focus his full attention on recording (so he doesn’t take three years like he did with “Curse Your Branches”) we need to keep him at home as much as possible until he’s finished recording the album. That’s a little tricky because a significant part of his income comes from touring.

So we came up with a plan to raise funds for anyone who wants to help out. Here’s the deal:

Shirt + CD + Liner Notes Package: $35

1. Limited Edition “I Helped Bazan Make A Record” T-shirt.
2. A pre-order of Bazan’s “Strange Negotiations” CD (delivery date TBA)
3. Your name in the liner notes of  “Strange Negotiations”.
4. $5 coupon good towards purchase of Bazan merchandise at any show.

SOLD OUT

=========================================

Shirt + LP + Liner Notes Package: $40

1. Limited Edition “I Helped Bazan Make A Record” T-shirt.
2. A pre-order of Bazan’s “Strange Negotiations” Vinyl LP (delivery date TBA)
3. Your name in the liner notes of  “Strange Negotiations”.
4. $5 coupon good towards purchase of Bazan merchandise at any show.

SOLD OUT

=========================================

This is a limited time offer. We’ll take orders until December 1.
There will be no re-prints of the shirts after the sales period ends.
Shirts and discount coupons will ship on December 10.
(guaranteed delivery for Christmas!)
We don’t know exactly when the album will be released. But we’ll let you know as soon as we figure out the release date and ship it to arrive on or before that date.

Or if you prefer to donate a few bucks you can do so by clicking the button below.


100% of sales and donations will go directly towards the recording costs of “Strange Negotiations.”

Thanks for your support and help. We really appreciate it.

“I got the chicken parmesan, with a side of pizza”

Hello friends,

I apologize for the lack of updates. My added responsibilities on this tour have proved quite time-consuming. I hope we can still be friends.

I write to you from Columbia, South Carolina – a surprisingly cool town in a weird state. Lots and lots of people are here, being cool and buying merch. We’ve been so many places since we last talked, please allow me to recall them individually for you.

Springfield MO – Randy Bacon Gallery : The meth capitol of the world I was told by a local. I didn’t meet too many meth-heads, but I did meet a lot of twelve year olds. All ages shows are fun. I also got to see my friend Phil from the fantastic Springfield band Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. Randy Bacon gallery is a nice place with a very luxurious green room. They also gave us cheese cubes. Huzzah!

St. Louis MO – Old Rock House : The Old Rock House is one of the nicest clubs in the nation. The performance area looks like an old theater (it’s a very old, very large building), the bar is isolated well from the stage area (always a plus), and the green room has a television and air conditioning, amenities we’re not fully accustomed to.

Newport KY – Southgate House : This being the second venue in a row we played with the name “house” in it that is not a house at all, I felt a little betrayed, but the people of Newport/Cincinnati were very kind and welcomed us with horrible bar food across the street from the venue, tales of a haunted upstairs, and warnings of an alley notorious for van break-in’s. Luckily, our van remain unscathed, as did Big T’s Tavern. Big T’s Tavern is what the Headlights van is called. It’s where we drink when we play no alcohol/no liquor venues.

Day off in Nashville, TN – I live in Nashville. Being home with my special lady friend and getting to see my friends and family almost smack dab in the middle of a tour seemed way too good to be true. I ate fried things, slept well, and generally enjoyed myself.

Nashville TN – Exit / In : Exit/In is a great rock club, and we had a great show, with the highest attendance of the tour. My good friend Jeff Baker filled in behind the soundboard as our regular dude. the legendary Chris Colbert, had left us for two days to do sound at SXSW for his regular gig, The Walkmen. It was a great night, except my hometown showed no love for Headlights, which made me sad and embarrassed. Nick compensated by beating up his bass at the end of their set in a fit of Punk-ness.

Asheville NC – Grey Eagle : Asheville is a wonderful and weird town where hippies go to retire and young folks go to become hippies. The staff treated us well and cooked us delicious Cajun food. We ate at a place called the 51 grill in a gas station. It was delicious. Then we ate breakfast at cracker barrel. All we do is eat.

California

Hello friends,

Much has happened since we last spoke. We played a show in Visalia, California : a weird town that sneaks up on you. After driving through empty fields for an hour there was a Target and a Guitar Center and a sign that said welcome to Visalia. We played a rock show at a wine bar called the Cellar Door. The security guards there wear earpieces – because it’s serious.

The people of Visalia were great, as was the Cellar Door, but our hotel (The Lamp Liter Inn) while nice felt like the set of a 1970’s zombie movie. Not a reccomendation.

Next we drove to Santa Barbara, a town full of people with lots and lots of money, and home to Jeff Bridges, who finally won his first Academy Award for best actor while we were in town. We celebrated by quoting the Big Lebowski all night  – that is to say, it was a night like any other. SOhO is a nice venue, and the crowd (though they seemed a little Sunday) was big and appreciative.

I write to you now from Alex’s Bar in Long Beach, California. Home to NWA, pretty good Mexican food, and the ghetto. Alex’s Bar was apparently the bar where a bunch of scenes from the television show True Blood was shot. I wouldn’t know, because Vampires are for the birds. Lots of people here, they’re buying lots of merch, cheering really loud, and generally being cool. Tomorrow we drive to Las Vegas, where it will be my birthday after load-out It’s going to be a good day.
