What an incredible show at Bows & Arrows last night in Sacramento! THANK YOU to everyone who came out to support, some of you for the first time, and for reminding us how much we love what we do and why we do it. Here’s a little pic from after the show with our friends Scissors for Lefty and the Generals.
So playing an Ace of Base song at a concert is kiiind of a childhood fantasy of ours. We got to play The Sign and All The She Wants at the Jags Solanki Memorial Gala in Sacramento a couple weeks ago, and Scott Prusko put this little video together for you guys. DPA triv – The Sign was the first album we bought with our saved allowance!! Just living the dream over here…
Everyone has a September 11 story. Everyone remembers where they were when they heard the news. Things changed that day. The world changed. This story is only one infinitesimal fraction of the stories that are told of September 11. This story is ours.
Twelve years ago, Sarah got on a train headed into New York City for another day at college. Stephanie was back at home on Long Island, hearing a weird news story on the radio of a plane that seemed to have accidentally crashed into the Twin Towers. Big, clunky mobile phones went off in Sarah’s train, and she caught fragments of conversations—broken, confusing reports of that little plane, which turned into two passenger planes, which turned into terrorism. The train sped on. Stephanie was sitting in a diner in downtown Babylon, watching the TV reports of the totally unbelievable attack, a room stunned into silence as they slowly understood what was happening.
You guys. YOU GUYS! It’s official.
We’re doing the new album.
Heading back to the studio for what we told ourselves we wouldn’t call Project Gamma as a working title BUT WE ARE ANYWAY!! So we are tucked away in a beautiful little spot creating all the demos and preproduction bits that will make this album happen.
But we want to make this album with you.
We’re launching a cool little pledge project with the awesome people at PledgeMusic so you can all help support the album and be part of it.
We had such an incredible weekend. Seriously. So now it’s shoutout time. Here we go.
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported all of us this weekend, rocking out for an awesome cause. Special thanks to #teamDPA for coming together to pull off a great show, especially to the incredible Ian Rasmussen on bass (from Sacramento band Telemetry) who took care of everything from load in roadie stuff, to drum and guitar tech stuff, to amp rental, to rehearsal space. He is a rockstar. Much love to the amazing Cyrill Messmer on guitar of Swiss pop-rock superstars Myron and our friend Brian Whitten, who totally rocked the keys. Thanks to Rajan Patel from AVL Films for the stunning stage and lighting (wowsers guys, talk about a stage) as well as double drums with Steph (yeah, it was crazy!) and Hedo Solanki and Viraaj Solanki and the rest of the first class crew who helped us rock out. It was just a great night.
