we're on at about 10pm:
No Friends Only Enemies When: Sat Aug 1 at 7 pm. Price: $15-$30
"Theater company/culture virus Implied Violence has been traveling: A residency at Robert Wilson's Watermill Center on Long Island, reconnaissance trips to Germany, and now an invitation to make a scene at the New isLand Festival in New York City. To fund their exploits, they're doing what they do best- throwing a bash. The venue: the basement of the American Hotel (until recently a Union Gospel shelter). The art: Implied Violence, NKO. The diverse bands: messy punk by Strong Killings, garage pop by TacocaT, ethereal avant by Zac Pennington and Jherek Bischoff of the Parenthetical Girls, dirty electronica by Weekend, and more. The booze: of course."
I feel like the band is gazing out over a sea to the coming dawn, from the windows of a colony on Europa in the near future. Welcome to TEOTWAK.
Beast, Please be Still has been featured in The Silent Ballet's list of the best 50 albums of 2008 as an honorable mention. Thanks TSB! We hope you all come to the show on the 24th, prepared for something new. Expect rotating instrumentation, spirit animals, screams from dystopic futures, strings, drums, the chains of oppressed brothers, horns, smiles, hugs, and more.
We're booked for The Cumulus Music Festival on January 24, 2009 with great bands Hypatia Lake, Deelay Ceelay, The Luna Moth, and Unlearn!
The CD release party at Chop Suey was terrific. Thanks to everyone for coming out, Joy Wants Eternity and Wizard Prison for being awesome, Alejandro for being The sound guy, and to Three Imaginary Girls for the lovely writeup. We've got a couple of shows coming up, and are scheming a trip out of town soon.
The album, self titled, arrived! Thanks everyone who helped get it done. It's here, let us know what you think.
Sadly, the Crocodile closed this weekend. We're looking at different venues to have the CD Release Party, which is no longer at the Croc. We'll figure it out soon, stay tuned..
Update: The show is now on January 8 at Chop Suey with the same awesome bands: Wizard Prison and Joy Wants Eternity.
The all new group with its' mighty 2 drumsets had some fun
with Corespondants and Unlearn at
The Vera Project
the other night.
Thanks for having us, Vera!
The CD is finally getting printed, and
we're having a release party
at the Crocodile on January 9, 2008!
(The Croc closed! See above)
Thanks, The Stranger, for choosing a poster of the week which includes us. Thanks keith for making the lovely poster! See you, Sleepy Eyes of Death, the Capitol Steps, and everyone else at the Crocodile on Tuesday.
we just came out of a long weekend at church. No really, Colburn Studios really is a church. There wasn't much praying, but a whole lotta testifyin' goin' on! This album is going to be rad.
hey Bright Red Paper and White Nights, you're awesome! We had great time at the Crocodile on Tuesday, thanks everyone for coming. This week the Seattle Weekly pointed out how little money a 7-piece band pulls in, and gave a great review. Thanks SW!
Thanks to Josh from Beep Repaired and Lake of Falcons fame for his great work recording some new tracks for us! We've got shows coming up on February 03 and February 08 with some terrific bands. We hope to see you there!
Happy new year! February brings loveliness, as we get to play with Joy Wants Eternity again, along with Smile Brigade at The High Dive on February 08, 2007. This is one Beep Repaired extravaganza. [ oops, the date incorrectly read 02/09. -ed ]
Also, check out Garrett and Amber's radio station, Hollow Earth Radio! It's terrific so far, and mere days old.
Unfortunately, we have lost tenor saxophonist Andy to the clutches of the Bay Area. In better news, we've welcomed Jonah, master violinista. Come say HI! Oh yeah, and big things are about to happen.
Kind words from The Stranger:
The newish nine-piece Seattle unit Beast, Please Be Still traverse the ambitious orbit that many of Montreal's Constellation Records' artists do; they're all about busting out of rock's gritty urban confines and heading out to the country -- and, occasionally, deep space. Beast, Please Be Still (even their name requires patience) strive to embroider the rock song with beguiling textures, imbuing their elongated passages with poignancy rather than bathos, as many of their ilk are prone to do.
Thanks guys. We hope to see you all at Chop Suey on Sunday July 02, it's going to be awesome. NA, BILL HORIST, WALLY SHOUP & DAVE ABRAMSON, BEAST, PLEASE BE STILL,COCK & SWAN
The show at Chop Suey was a lot of fun, thanks to all of you who came out. Special props go to Assisted Living, Terrene, and Never an "Anything" for playing with us. A couple of shows are in the works for June, and we're confirmed for June 20 at the Rendezvous.
New songs magically appeared on the media page. These were recorded in mono
at last practice, and are a bit rough, but a critical reviewer noted that
there are some really beautiful parts on there, I think we're
going to sound badass at the show.
You'll need to come see us at Chop Suey on 05/15/2006 to hear the real dope!
The band has branched off into a new namespace. Welcome to our new home, that of Beast, Please Be Still. We've got fresh new energy, it's invigorating.
We laid down some tracks at Studio 414 the other weekend, and the initial results are promising. Keep your ears out for a demo release in the coming weeks, followed by a full EP. Some photos of the recording weekend are posted here.
thanks to everyone who came out to see us last night at the 414 house. it was great being able to debut some new songs despite a few broken strings and the deconstructive ability of the inebriated vs. rob's amp.
hello. thanks for coming by, and for your patience while our interweb presence settles into the truth. we've been busy writing and rehearsing new material for an EP to be recorded in March of the good year 2006. thanks, see you soon.
