i didn’t think it was too hard at first, but being in two bands can get really fucking hard. i’m not saying that it’s a bad thing, because a lot of good has come out of this. making sweet jams with both bands and developing new ideas and feeding off of ideas to incorporate into both bands has really helped me become a much better/open minded as a musician and as a person. i’ve been neglecting the first band (catch the matinee) i was in for a while now, not on purpose, just because i’ve been much busier with my second band (arrows in her). i feel like i’m way more involved in my second band, we started all of our stuff from scratch, we all need each other there, bass and drums are super important and this is why i have felt like this second band became more important to me personally. my first band is awesome and i love those guys to death, but i feel like my role isn’t as prominent and if i were to leave, the band could easily continue and wouldn’t even need to look for a replacement.
i guess that is what has always bugged me. i’ve always wanted to do as much as i can, and in the first band that i’m in, i TRY to play as many things as i can but i feel like it isn’t enough. i’ve really debated on leaving for such a long time now, that it wasn’t me on the records and the shows, that i was just playing someone else’s music and that it got really old. i’ve felt even stronger about these feelings as i played with my second band, and seeing how successful (slowly, but surely) we are getting in such a short amount of time. we came out with an ep and have gotten really great reactions from people all around (the world?). that’s the first time that has really happened to me. i felt like with my first band, we were playing for the same people over and over, that we were just playing for our friends and not making an attempt to expand. i feel like all of that will change though
i’ve been in the studio with my first band for a couple of weeks now, re-recording our first ep. it’s actually us playing it now, though. this record has made me feel really optimistic about my presence in the band, even though i still feel like i don’t do enough. if anything, i think i might end up playing second guitar along with keyboards and vocals. it’s definitely a challenge, considering that i’m not even that great at guitar, but it’s a challenge that i’m willing to accept. but i want to stick around for the long run. this album feels to me like a revival of the enthusiasm i had when we first started the band. we finished the final vocals/percussion yesterday, and now it is in the mixing stages. i’ve been listening to the rough mixes of them all day, and i can’t get it out of my head.
i’m not too fond of catch the matinee’s name change to “del monte rosa”, but i have decided to stay. balancing two bands is no easy task, but i’m willing to do it for the love i have for my friends and for the music we make together

This band is kick-ass.
i think i’m finally going back to school again!
i’ve been feeling pretty lazy taking a whole year and a half off just to work and play music. for the most part, it’s been pretty fun and all, but i kind of missed going to school and letting that occupy a portion of my time instead of just sitting around finding something to do. hopefully this will help me become less of a sloth and give me some inspiration for some new art projects. i’ve been neglecting my sketchbook for a very long time, and i know she misses me……. FUCK
here goes nothing
