Wow, it feels like this blog is just becoming a place for me to announce my shows! haha
Well, I haven’t had anything interesting to fill these pages with lately, and the amount of activities I have to do is just overwhelming, and I don’t get time to sit down in front of the pc to write creatively. I have a job appraisal in 2 days (wish me all the best!) and I have some gigs lined up this month as well! And if I’m lucky, I’ll be paid to play 8 nights which will mean I hit 20 gigs by the end of the year! woo hoo! well we’ll just see how things go. In the meantime, here’s my upcoming gig at the end of the month:
This will be the first time I’m headlining for doppelganger (hopefully not the last! haha) so DO COME! Bring your friends, spread the word! Tell everyone you know! It’s at the end of the month, on a Sunday, which isn’t NY eve so you should have no problems making it! :p

And here’s a little more about our performers for December!
Sparanormal, An unintended collaboration formed in 2001. It went on nameless for quite a while, until just sometime last year the name came to be. Since then the band managed to record a few songs. It was hard squeezing in work and music together. But in the name of music and in dire need of some variation in our daily lives the band had to live on. So far Its been a hell of a journey, and were looking forward for a hell lot more. Sparanormal is Kameel, singin’ and strummin 2nd guitar Jzon, rippin’ 1st guitar Ajeem, thumping bass Safwan, rolling the drums With our first not so far in the future release (hope so) Between, Above and High Sparanormal E.P. out NOW!

After the disbanding of his former band, dreamingtosleep, George needed another outlet to release his thoughts, feelings and emotions. He picked up the acoustic guitar, put new words down on paper and wrote stripped down, honest, soul baring music. What started off as a couple of songs for a side project for bedroom jamming and the ears of good friends eventually turned into a collection of songs that forms his current performing setlist. With more than enough songs to record an album with, George decided that his music needed to be heard. In 2007, he finally broke out of his bedroom by playing at his first open mic event. Surprised by the great response he got to his ‘friendster song’ he decided that he was going to do more than just play to his friends. After taking a break for a few months, getting his heart broken and writing a few new tunes, in 2008, he hit the open mic scene like there was no tomorrow- playing at every doppelganger and cloth and clef gig for a few months straight. To audiences big or small, receptive or not, he just wanted people to hear what he had to say. Now with an EP in the works and a number of gigs lined up for him, things look like they are finally shaping up for 2storeyheart.
Hope to see you guys there!
