Just before The FEST 9 (2010) in Gainesville, FL, NYC’s Bridge and Tunnel suffered a setback that would cause most bands to cancel. Guitarist Rachel Rubino broke her wrist in a bicycle accident meaning she would not be able to play. The band opted instead to play a cover set of hardcore songs as a three piece with Rubino on vocals. Arguably the most talked about set that year, these recordings were pressed to vinyl for a limited 7″ insert in the band’s 2011 LP, Rebuilding Year on No Idea Records.
A great wrap up video from this year’s The FEST 10 in Gainesville, FL.
Jay over at the new Up And At Them live music blog just completed a new mini-doc called 2000 Miles of Debt and Doubt featuring the Fest 9 tour of the bands The Great Explainer and Pacer. Check it out as well as other live videos from Crucial Dudes…!
So stoked to share this preview from my buddy Reese of my boys DTM.
This all started a few months ago when our buddies in You Blew It! got together with our audio crew from The FEST 9 to do a recording project. The result of which is Terry v. Tori on the Topshelf Records 2011 Label Sampler. We ended up wanting to do a video for it and it snowballed into getting some NU alumn and some new friends together to shoot a video during Koerber’s birthday party at The Buffalo (the You Blew It! house). It actually came out pretty rad. See for yourself.
My relationship with Mose Giganticus has been pretty varied over time. For about a year and a half, I considered myself a member of the band; another time, I left tour, rented a car and drove myself home after the first show. Regardless, I probably owe almost everything I know about how to be in a professional band while still staying true to DIY ethics to Matt Garfield and my experience with Mose. There is not one person in the DIY community that works harder and grinds it out moreso that Matt Mose. Whether it is touring to Alaska and back, stealing veg oil at 4 in the morning, or just playing show after show after show after show, Matt Garfield and Mose Giganticus is as honest and as real as music gets.
