What's been going down: Part I

So as you should all know by now, yes, Eric Slick is the new drummer for Dr. Dog and it's damn exciting. Last Monday they had a photo shoot for their upcoming tour, and this is the first one published.



Here's a review of Ninja gig at Johnny Brenda's last Thursday...some additional photos and nice comments posted there, too.



Dr. Dog just signed with Anti Records

Meanwhile, how cool is it that Eric gets to play the Electric Factory in Philadelphia, where his Dad saw his first concerts at age 15. We saw Jeff Beck there last May and I started having the fantasy back then though little did I know it would be Eric with a new band.

By the way, before he takes off on this gargantuan tour, Eric has two gigs this week which will be awesome. Tomorrow night, he is on the drums with Ape School and here are the details as published by the City Paper:

"Ape School is futuristic, but not in an entirely nerdy way, even though there are some moments in their oeuvre that can only be described as “beam me up” music. With Savior Adore, Circadian Rhythms, and New Motels, $8, 7:30 p.m., Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 215-291-4919."


On Friday night, Eric is playing with Lithuania at The Ox which I personally would love to see since Eric and Dom Angelella share vocals but um, I'd kinda feel like 90 years older than everyone there so I will have to take a pass. Bleh.

And then next week, the Dr. Dog tour begins.

Oh, another thing I wanted to mention is that the Dr. Dog show in New York City on May 15 at Terminal 5 is on Eric's 23rd birthday. We're going to have to come up with something major for that. All ideas welcome!

Finally, please friend the band on Facebook. You'll understand why when you visit their page.

In Julie world, she had a blast at NAMM. Here's a couple of photos - one which bass player extraordinaire Tony Levin posted on his website...



...and another with bassist Bryan Beller, Bryan's amazingly talented wife, singer Kira Small, and Corey Brown from No Treble, where, as I have already posted all over the internet, Julie's interview was #1 read in 2009!



So yeah, Julie schmoozed with rock royalty at NAMM and she's going to fill me in (finally) when she swings by here today or tomorrow, but the harsh reality is this: The music business is such that unless Julie is out there actively touring, she isn't earning a living. So in case anyone reading this is looking for a kick ass bassist willing to travel the world, Julie is your woman. Here's a link to her EPK: Click!

This wraps up part I...part II to follow. Hey, I do have a writing career of my own!

Later,

1. Does Eric's Dr. Dog gig affect his ABPT gig?

2. Have you heard Mike Keneally's new album?

RobinSlick said...

Hi, Bill!

1. Do not know the answer to that one;
2. Scambot is one of the best CDs I've heard in recent years.

Bill said...

1. Wow. Does ABPT still exist? Has something happened?

2. Agreed.

Have a great day!

No worries.

Hey Rob,
That is so cool that Eric is in Dr. Dog!!! Dani, my younger daughter is a fan of Dr. Dog and plans on going to the Electric Factory. Katie saw Julie at NAMM and enjoyed reconnecting. Glad to hear everyone is doing well. What a great start to the new year!
Cheers,
Esther

RobinSlick said...

Hi, Esther! Thanks so much and I will get Julie to give me all the NAMM gossip when I see her today - I know she was really looking forward to seeing Katie so I will get her to fill me in on Katie's latest news, too. Yeah, very exciting about Eric...you never know, there may be some surprise all ages Philly area surprise Ninja gigs again in the near future and if so, I will shoot you an email so Dani can attend.

Eric mentioned on twitter that he would be in Cleveland on 2/10 but didn't say where or with whom and I hadn't figured it out for myself yet. Thanks, Robin-via-Google ;)

RobinSlick said...

Well, I just hope this means I will have the usual comprehensive review a few days later, Derek!
