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 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!
Tycho Live Dates, Sep/Oct 2010: 9/26 – Tycho w/ Tim Hecker+Sanso-Xtro – Triple Door, Seattle Tickets 9/29 – Tycho w/ Com Truise – Le Poisson Rouge, NYC Tickets 10/2 – Tycho w/ TBA – The Drake Hotel, Toronto Details
The highlight reel from the recent FITC event here in San Francisco is out and it’s excellent as usual. Stock Archive did a great job shooting and pulling all the footage together — they even used a Tycho track for good measure. Also check out the reel from Toronto. If I recall, they were using a 5D MK2 for the Toronto stuff so I’m assuming that’s what most of this was shot with as well. If anyone from SA is reading, how did you get the aerials? Cool stuff.
As part of FITC SF (which I’ll also be speaking at) I’ll be playing a live Tycho set with the new band. It’s a private party for the conference but FITC has given me a handful of guest list spots to give out (all FITC attendees already get it, so don’t enter if you already have a pass for the conference). The show will be the night of August 18th, here in San Francisco. If you’d like to go, email firstname.lastname@example.org with “FITC Party” in the subject. We’ll pick some addresses and let you know if you won. Good luck!
