SXSW, New Times spotlight on "The Prey" and Scottsdale Arts Festival  Podcast

 

 

"The entire band is in top form here and keep in mind it's only the beginning of a fantastic album." - Mitchell Hillman, Phoenix New Times

Hey there! 

Wanted to check in as it's been a minute.  Things are still rad over here, and getting radder.  My band Treasurefruit is playing at the 46th Annual Scottsdale Arts Festival this weekend (Sunday 3/13).  We will be a full quartet, doing a jumbo set of the full album plus a handful of new faves.  We go on at 3:30pm on the Fountain Stage (near AZ88) in case you're there.  It's a good day to come because Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra, Jerusafunk, The Blood Feud Family Singers and the Sunpunchers are all on the lineup as well.

In other news, our single "The Prey" was recently included in a Phoenix New Times spotlight feature on 5 new songs to hear from AZ bands, including some comprehensive reflections on the track and a shout-out to our guitarist extraordinaire Matt Ventre, who while ferocious and exotic, always plays it cool.  Sophistication, taste and restraint are his specialty.  I am lucky to get to work with this guy.  Also, check out the other cats on the list who are all pals of ours and make tasty tunes. 

And finally, I'll be back at my old stomping grounds in Austin at this year's SXSW!  If you know people who'll be there, send them my way for a private serenade.  Just look for the yellow sunglasses and hot pink flyers.

  • Thank you, @grandavenuerecords for a successful impromptu dig on my way to Bikini before the @nanami_ozone show at @trunkspace. This was factory sealed and legit. I'll be barking up your tree again soon! #rundmc #tougherthanleather #vinyl #turntablelife #yourturntablesnotdead #recordcollection #grandavephx
