DrumJam plays the Official Blue October Aftershow at Stubb’s tonight, doors at 11:30pm & show at midnight.
I love DrumJam’s live performances, but I also felt the desire to post this because I have to brag on myself for two seconds. Basically, I don’t really like Blue October’s music personally. BUT before they were REALLY BIG and selling out shows and had a platinum album (December 2006), I pitched a story about them to HOUSTON magazine–by warbling “Hate Me” intentionally off key and then outlining the boys’ Texas roots. They bought it and my first REAL feature in a magazine was born. I interviewed Justin, the lead singer, for the article. Imagine being a rookie journalist and having this be your first big piece! So while I don’t love their sound, I can’t help but love Blue October.
I do, however, actually love DrumJam’s sound. So pay the $8 (or free with your Blue October ticket) and get your drum on.
