Here’s how it works.

1. You have a house or loft space that can comfortably and safely host 40-50 people. A place with a big living room, finished basement or other interior space would be ideal. Sorry, we can’t do these shows outside. There needs to be enough parking nearby and your neighbors should be cool. It would be a huge bummer if someone called the cops because of all the extra cars and people coming to your house. You should probably not do this if you live in a small apartment with a bunch of uptight neighbors or a cranky landlord.

2. The shows will not be open to the public and no tickets will be sold at the door. We will pre-sell a set number of tickets for each show on David’s website before the show. Be realistic on how many people your place can hold. We need to know how many tickets we can sell in advance. We’ve found that 40-50 people is what the average living room can hold. Ticket price will be $20.

3. David usually starts playing at 8pm. We ask people to start arriving after 7pm and to be out of your house by 10pm.

4. We will provide you with a detailed list of everyone who will be coming to the show. The host won’t have to deal with any money and will only need to check people off the list as they arrive. We give the people coming to show very specific instructions on when to arrive, when they need to be out of your house, and how it’s a small intimate acoustic show and not a house party.

We’ll make this as easy as possible for the hosts. We’ve done over 300 shows like this and haven’t had any problems or complaints. Bazan fans are very polite!

5. The host can have up to 5 additional free tickets for the show. If you have other friends who want to come to the show you can direct them to the link to buy tickets on-line.

6. You don’t need any sort of sound system. All you need is a chair for David to sit on. A small table and lamp would be nice too.

7. Your home address will not be published on the web and will only be given to those people who purchase tickets.

8. The shows will not be promoted or advertised anywhere except David’s websites and word-of-mouth.

9. There will be no opening acts on the living room shows.

If you are interested, please follow these steps:

1. READ THIS

2. email  bob@undertowmusic.com with all of these things:
– a. your address.
– b. a few photos of your living room.
– c. please put “Bazan Living Room Show” and the name of your town in the subject line.

3. sit tight and we’ll get back to as soon as possible if we can work your home into the routing.

After we have the dates and locations sorted out we will announce the dates and tickets will go on sale at undertowtickets.com.

Thank you all for the amazing support.

It was hard to choose because we recieved over 300 submissions. But we narrowed it down and picked this really great illustration by Christopher Kennedy. You can check out some of his other work HERE.

We are sending Christopher $150, Bazan and Deerhoof shirts, Bazan Lifetime Pass and other goodies.

Thanks to everyone who sent in their ideas. We really appreciate everyone being so supportive. We hope to do more projects like this in the future.

And thanks to Deerhoof for being so awesome to work with.

Side A is Bazan’s collaboration with Deerhoof on their song “No One Asked To Dance” that we’ve renamed “No One Asked Bazan To Dance.”

Side B is a live recording of the Headphones song “Gas and Matches” recorded at Ante Up Studios in Cleveland OH during a Bazan Band tour last February.

The 7″ will be released on January 17 by the nice folks over at Polyvinyl Records. It’s limited to 2000 copies on translucent blue vinyl.

You can PRE-ORDER it now direct from Polyvinyl and get an instant download of both tracks.

Pre-orders will ship on or around January 10th.

Centro-matic will be playing shows in Dallas and Houston the first weekend of December. Spooky Folk will be opening both shows.

Rocky’s new album will be out in early 2012. For the first time his his career, he’s releasing an album without the funding and assistance of a record label. Rocky is reaching out directly to his fans to help fund the project through Kickstarter. Fans can contribute at different pledge levels and get limited edition and one-of-a-kind stuff in return. It’s been wildly successful so far… over $23,000 raised in less than a week. Every dollar raised goes directly into the making and promotion of the album. There’s 22 days left to make a pledge. Please consider supporting Rocky and his music.
