So one of my favorite bands came through town last night for the first time since September '07 (LMA download link). You can be sure that it was a good night all around, especially with a bill consisting of Red Sparowes (Los Angeles), Caspian (Beverly, MA) and Fang Island (Brooklyn). Do not miss this tour. Well, since it's almost over chances are you may have. Don't worry, Caspian is constantly touring. This includes 25 dates in Europe this May. Caspian's second album "Tertia" was released last year through The Mylene Sheath. Thanks to the band and to The 400 Bar for allowing this recording to happen. Caspian has other live recordings available for free download on The Live Music Archive.

Be sure to tune in to Nowlikephotographs and Radio K (770AM/100.7FM/104.5FM) this Monday at 8PM Central for an interview with the band from the basement of the 400 Bar. I believe interviews were also conducted with Red Sparowes and Fang Island. Nowlikephotographs can also be streamed online.

I'm also excited to annouce that Caspian will now be making ONE list spot available for anyone interested in recording the show no matter which continent they may happen to be playing that night. First come first served. This is of course dependent on the venue's existing policies which may prohibit recording. This offer may also not apply to festivals or tours where Caspian is supporting in which recording is not allowed. Please contact me at the email address above for more information. Your interest is appreciated by both the band and myself. - John
