INDIE ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Our "stay at home" moment is a great time to showcase some artists you may not have heard of. Nicola Denti is an excellent guitarist/composer from Parma, Italy. I tracked bass for his song "Awakening" on his just-released album "Egosfera". It's great instrumental guitar-oriented rock, with killer tones, riffs, and melodies to last for days. And amazing playing by Nicola, of course!

The whole album is available at Bandcamp right here:

FOR THE CREATIVES (with bonus Dunlop Bass Wah action): I’m posting a video to say it’s ok not to post a video just because everyone’s posting a video, and also that it’s great that everyone’s doing that. Huh? Just watch. And stay safe. 🙏🙏

MONGOLIAN METAL: Well, maybe it's more hard rock than metal, but alliteration always achieves. This is The HU and they're perfect for those #stayhome moments we're all enjoying. Make sure you turn on the closed captioning/subtitles! 😉🤘

LATE SEPTEMBER DOGS ONLINE RECORD RELEASE *THIS SATURDAY NIGHT*: I was really excited to play with Zappa Vaultmeister/drummer Joe Travers at The Whisky on March 28 for Late September Dogs' record release gig for their new album "Learning To Fall". It's hard-grooving straight-up rock fronted by two female lead singers, Liz Teisan and Jackie Farrar, and featuring Liz's brother Dan Teisan and Jay Smith on guitar. Welp, that got cancelled along with everything else on my calendar. But you can check out the whole new album during their *online* record release watch party tomorrow (Saturday) night at 6:00pm Pacific. It will be a full album streaming video, kind of like I did with the "Scenes From The Flood" premiere events (not saying I invented this format or anything, just for reference!).

We're all looking for something to do while sequestered indoors, right? So I invite you to check it out, and hopefully one day when this all blows over, Travers and I can rock this material properly live. 🤘🤘THIS COMING SATURDAY! VIDEO PREMIERE WATCH PARTY! 6 PM PST www.facebook.com/lateseptemberdogs

Want to hear @lateseptemberdogs new album in its entirety while watching a brand new, album-length video? Want to get more information on how and where to purchase CDs, vinyl and other merchandise? Join us on Facebook at 6:00 PM PST THIS COMING SATURDAY and we will tell you more!

ATTENTION ASIA: As you can see below, the COVID-19 situation has forced the postponement of the upcoming Aristocrats Asia tour. We're working on a reschedule plan right now. I think my face in this poster says it all. 😉Dear Aristo-crowd in Asia!:
Unfortunately the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to postpone our upcoming June-July tour in Asia. We announced shows in Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam and had many more to announce, but we had to hold back in light of the recent developments. Currently many borders are closed, countries have cancelled all public events, and most crucially, visas have been cancelled or have become impossible to obtain for the short term future. So we are currently planning the new dates with the promoters in your country as we speak, and we'll inform you as soon as we can about the rescheduled shows. In the meantime, let’s all do our part, keep a safe social distance, stay informed with advice from local health experts, and together we’ll beat this so we can make this all happen again as soon as possible!

Thanks again and stay safe,
The Aristocrats
