Tycho Live w/ Dusty Brown - Photo by +Russ
Big thanks to everyone who made it out Thursday for the Ghostly show in Seattle, we had a great time playing for you. Hope to see you all again soon.
By the way, did anyone catch that Mad Professor / Banga show at Nemos afterwards? Amazing, I couldn’t breathe from all that bass.

Just a quick update on tomorrow night’s ticket situation from the organizers:
Decibel: Ghostly 10 yr showcase tomorrow at the Seattle Art Museum
There is a VERY good chance that you’ll be able to get into the Ghostly event in the auditorium. Pre-sale have ended, but I doubt all pass holders are going to show up, which means we’ll have extra seats available for walk up sales. I’d recommend getting there by 6pm. Tycho goes on at 7pm.

Tycho + Dusty Brown Live - Photo By Lead Into Gold
I’m happy to announce that 2/3rds of Dusty Brown will be joining me on stage for the Seattle show on Thursday. We’ve been rehearsing some new versions of different songs and we’ll also be playing the Dusty Brown remix from Past is Prologue. Flying out tomorrow, gotta start packing, see you out there.

As some astute readers pointed out in the Tycho Live in Seattle post, the event is not quite as “free” as originally stated. I checked in with the organizers and apparently only the lobby area — where Michna and Lusine will be playing — is free. The auditorium show — where The Sight Below and myself will be playing — is actually $10 (unless you have a Decibel Fest pass in which case it’s included).
The event is the opening gala for this year’s Decibel Fest, you can get tickets here. I’ve heard they’re almost out so get on it if you haven’t already.
Sorry for the confusion, see you out there!
The Ghostly Discovery App has been garnering all sorts of praise and even more downloads since it’s July launch. When we first posted on it a lot of you had noted that it was not available overseas. Well the announcement just came down that with the release of version 1.05, the app is available internationally. The best part is that it’s still free! Get yours now
Ghostly 10 Year Seattle handbill
I’ll be heading up to Seattle later this month to Play the Ghostly 10 year show at Decibel Fest. Last year was great so really looking forward to this one.
You can see the flyer for the show above. I went with a slightly modified version of the Chicago poster / Ten Year Print to change it up a little. With this one I was going for more of a flyer/handbill feel as opposed to a poster.
Here are all the details, hope to see you out there…

Tickets and Info
Just a quick reminder that tonight I’ll be playing in Austin at The Parish Room. This will be an all ages show (my first in a while), you can get presale tickets here.
On a side note, looking forward to making it through my first successful set with the new SSD running things.
Time to head out to the airport, see you tonight…
Test pressing of Tycho - Costal Brake 12 Inch
It’s been a hectic past month, I feel like I’ve been all over the place and I’m really looking forward to getting some time at home to focus. I head out to Austin tomorrow to play The Parish Room for the final show in this recent set and then I’ll have a few weeks until Seattle to get work done.
Luckily, during this time I’ve been able to get the new Tycho 12″ wrapped up and I finally got the test pressing in (shown above). The 12″ will feature a new single — “Coastal Brake” — along with 3 remixes by Lusine, Hatchback, and Manual. It feels good to finally have all the artwork and music done for this one, the final step is ok’ing this test copy. I also did my first offset print job in a while (click for some images) as part of this project, the posters will be included with the record. Looking back, this single has been about as much work as it was to put together my last album, funny how that works.
After I get back from Austin it will be time to really focus in on finishing up this new album. For some reason whenever I go out of town, when I return my house looks like a bomb went off. I guess things just get out of hand and disorganized when I’m rushing to get packed up. I hate returning to the mess because it’s really stressful to try to work in a disorganized environment. So I finally got some free time over the past few days and reorganized the place and got the studio back in order. Hopefully now when I return it will be a smooth transition back into work.
