i’m plannin’ on selling our 2005 ford e350 xlt 15 passenger van. cause you know, we have a private jet now. im probably gonna be selling that soon too when we start touring via teleportation. so if you’re in a band thats not quite to the private jet level yet, maybe this’ll do.

for a band its good cause it currently has a nice loft built into the back to sleep 2- 3 and storage / sleeping below as well. but it’d come out easy if you wanted. its got a data / cd player with an aux in to hook up ipods. and a towing package for a trailer and all that. its in good condition, runs spectacularly, only minor cosmetic dings (with j burger behind the wheel, its hard to avoid.) and no rust. i don’t have pictures YET but if you are totally seriously considering i could get some pretty quick.

here’s a link to the kelly blue book info on this van with some of the important stats on it… [kelly blue book value].

if you wanna know more, email [email protected] the van is in orange county, sooo you’d have to be able to get it from here. so hopefully you live nearby. ask me questions, whatever. (try not to email that address to say wasssup. say wassup at [email protected])

Hellogoodbye Show Review – Nov 24, 2006

Hellogoodbye, Reggie & The Full Effect, Cute Is What We Aim For, & Dave Melillo
House of Blues in West Hollywood, CA
November 24, 2006

The House Of Blues, spanning the entire United States in the biggest and most famous cities, you can always count on HOB to put on a quality show. Extensive security and a very short list of items you can bring in (that doesn’t include bottled water or any form of camera) makes for a very different dynamic for a concert. Stage lighting equivalent to that of an arena or broadway performance, I’ll just stick to staying short and say you can definitely expect a “show.” Sorry, no photo pass for this one, you’ll just have to take my word for it.

Dave Melillo, one of Drive Thru Record’s youngest artists (signed at age 16), followed the typical DTR format and released an EP entitled “Talk Is Cheap” for free online earlier this year. I’m a big fan of the EP and have been excited to see him perform live ever since hearing it. With a band that couldn’t possibly be out of their teenage years, I was quite skeptical as he stepped on the stage. From the first note it was quite clear that with your eyes closed you’d believe you were listening to someone far beyond his 17 years. Playing his entire EP and the debut song, “Wait For It”- Dave is a true testament to the idea of talented people becoming younger and younger. If this is what he sounds like now, I can only imagine what he will create in the coming years.

I am guilty. 100% guilty. It took countless listens and this being my fourth time seeing the band in concert, but I’m getting past the denial. I am addicted to Cute Is What We Aim For. Now, lyrically they are not my favorite. Songs that speak the truths of popular TV shows like The OC or Laguna Beach, but even though their subject matter isn’t always applicable, I still can identify to nearly every song. If I’m not able to identify, I’m still singing along. This 4-piece from Buffalo, NY has slowly begun to take over the world that is currently run by Fall Out Boy and Panic! and I wouldn’t be surprised if they achieved a complete monopoly by this time next year. Their live show is solid, and Shaant sings quite well considering the energy he exudes on stage. If you’re a hater, you’ll come around. If you’re addicted already, I’m starting a support group soon, let me know if you’d like to join. All in all, I am really impressed with this band and can’t wait to see them again. They’re my pick as the next big thing in pop music.

I said it earlier to a friend of mine, and I’ll say it again. Reggie and the Full Effect was the absolute worst choice for this tour. Not only does their music not fit the pop outline set by the other three acts, but the on-stage comments made by the once admirable James Dewees may very well make it so that half of the 14-year-olds in attendance will never be able to convince their onlooking parents to take them to a concert again. I’m not saying I’m not a fan of them, I actually appreciate their honesty and intensity, but not in this setting. James’ additional performance under his side project “Fluxuation” was NOT funny to anyone in the audience, it caused most of us to turn away from the man only wearing a bra and shorts and his “turkey” dancers. Basically, whatever respect I had for him, I lost.

Finally, after the hour long experience I mentioned above, Hellogoodbye took the stage. A packed out venue filled with frantic teenage girls, family friends, label staff and veteran scenesters was definitely ready to be uplifted. The band took no time changing my mood and performed nearly all of their recorded songs. Bright lights, confetti, balloons that Forrest insisted on pausing from his vocal duties to stomp, people dressed as food, and incredible music were all present in their performance. An amazing encore included “Oh, It Is Love” dedicated by Forrest to his own girlfriend was then supplemented by the audience favorite “Touchdown Turnaround” and an all-crowd dance party ensued. The only thing I could’ve asked for beyond the incredible performance was my personal favorite track “Two Weeks In Hawaii” but I guess you can’t have it all. Hellogoodbye puts on one of the most memorable and fulfilling performances in music today. I would gladly see them play every single night, and I don’t think I’d ever go to bed sad again. I shouldn’t even have to sell this to you so do yourself a favor, GO SEE HELLOGOODBYE LIVE!

Staff Recommendations October 22nd 2006

Michael Schneider

The Best of Bamboozle:

Hellogoodbye – Combining their performance at Bamboozle and my first real listen to their record, I can’t recommend anything higher than this band.

Cobra Starship – Expect my interview with Gabe to be up tomorrow! This CD is awesome and definitely a dance party waiting to happen.

Between The Trees - As if we haven’t been pushing them enough already, I LOVE this record. Read the review and stream it by clicking the banner up above!

Julie Watanabe

Brandon Heath – About this time in October I was hoping to serve up a recommendation for My Chemical Romance’s The Black Parade without the bat of an eyelash, but MCR went ahead and made a crappy record so I’m left to scavenge through my album collection to find you something above sub-par. I came up with a record I’ve been overplaying through all of October. Brandon Heath’s Don’t Get Comfortable came out in mid-September of this year, but unlike his in-life roommate Matt Wertz’s album, hasn’t enjoyed the same amount of instant acclaim. Being familiar with both singer’s debuts, I find myself more drawn to Brandon’s wholesome, college-coffehouse authenticity than Matt’s new-era soul/pop/funk fusion. For an idea of Brandon’s audience think mellow acoustics like Jack Johnson under clever pop verbiage like Jason Mraz, with an unbeat appeal reminscent of John Mayer. If you’re in the mood for something markedly less rock and more roll-down-your-windows-and-drive pop give Brandon Heath a try.

Tyler Hayes

Melee – This is a band that you need to watch out for. Hopefully people have heard of them but they deserve to be HUGE, and with the right marketing they will be when their major label debut comes out in the spring of ’07. Melee is a pure feel good pop band that will make you want more please check them out if you haven’t yet.
