I met up with the dudes in Restorations at the Side One Dummy office before their first LA show ever to film a couple acoustic songs and drink root beer floats. This ACS finishes with Restorations full (electric) set from The Satellite in Silverlake. Huge thanks to Jamie from S1D for being instrumental in setting up and organizing this session! This is Altered Course 016.
Check out our Bandcamp and pick up ‘Warehouse Sessions: Volume 1’ for only $5 (this week only). It features rare acoustic performances from Jon Simmons of Balance And Composure, Francesco Mentesanto of Sainthood Reps, Nick Diener of The Swellers, Reba and Kimi of Adventures, State Faults and Mixtapes.
Stephen and I had been discussing filming an acoustic session while he was in California when he confirmed this show at Vacation Vinyl in Silverlake. Since the set was going to be as stripped down as possible (no effects and no PA; just a guitar and voice) there wasn’t a need to film anything else. Steve plays several solo songs ranging from his first record to his latest effort “Hit or Mystery” and also a song from each Cave In and Mutoid Man! Special thanks to my friend Kimo for helping film. This is Altered Course 014.
The fine folks in Mixtapes recently stopped by the No Sleep Records office to be the sixth in our Acoustic Warehouse Sessions series. Enjoy, and look for more soon!
A special thanks to.. Mixtapes for doing this Chris Avis of Cavis Tapes for recording this Fender Guitars for the awesome acoustic The Donuttery for making everyones belly happy and for Ryan overeating on Donuts Green Vans for leaving the van bench in our warehouse
