This show will be with the entire live band and we’ll be running through a lot of new material from the upcoming album (which, incidentally, is very near completion; hoping to have it wrapped up by the time of the show). We’ve been working a lot on evolving the live set and the visuals so I’m excited that we’ll be bringing all the new elements together for the first time at The Independent, which just happens to be my favorite venue in the city.
Dusty Brown has certified this sound system and tonight is a go. Tycho goes on at 11:30pm, try to get there early as they should be hitting capacity quickly. Tickets are available at the door or you can purchase a full pass for all three days of the festival here.
SEMF @ The Townhouse, Sacramento Thursday, January 27th, 2011
Tycho will be playing in Sacramento at SEMF on Thursday, January 27th. SEMF is the Sacramento Music Festival which, if you haven’t been, is well worth the drive. This year’s line up includes Daedelus, Dusty Brown, Little Foxes, Bonjay, Sister Crayon and many more.
I’ll be doing visuals for Casino Versus Japan when he plays with Deerhunter and Real Estate this Saturday here in San Francisco. We’ve done this once before, at LPR in NYC. Should be a great night, see you out there. 10.30 – Deerhunter, Casino Versus Japan (w/ ISO50), Real Estate
And to answer Healthcare’s question in the comments, for the visuals I’m running the following:
– Macbook Pro
– VDMX (modular live video software environment)
– OS X network MIDI protocol for tempo sync with Ableton Live
– Akai MPD18 (might start using Novation Launchpad though, if I can get it to work with VDMX)
I just got back in from Toronto which was the last stop on the short Tycho tour we just did (I was joined by Dusty Brown and Zac Brown for the live sets). I just wanted to thank everyone so much for having us, we had a great time playing for you and couldn’t have asked for a better vibe. Our very own contributing writer Shelby White was on hand at the Seattle show to shoot with his 1D MK2. As you can see (above) the results were beautiful, he really captured the feel of the lighting that night. And that last one of Dusty is amazing!
I’m going to take a break from shows for a little bit here while I tie up some loose ends on the music front, but we’ll be hitting the road again — and making it to a lot more cities — once the album comes out and we have time for a proper tour.
I’m pleased to announce that we’ll be doing a few Tycho shows later this month in Seattle, NYC, and Toronto. All the sets will include the full live band (and unless otherwise noted, all future sets will as well). Details follow, hope to see you out!
