April 18th, 2014 (Tacoma, WA) – Three amazing rock bands, all worthy of a headlining spot, yet all humble enough to play first, and show support for each other! How do we decide who plays which spot? We are letting fate decide. Performance lineup will be determined by a toss of the dice, just before the show, and however the dice land, the crowd wins an incredible live music experience!
As an extra bonus, we have made a limited number of pre-sale tickets available for only $5! Buy your ticket directly from any band member and you will receive a free 6 song compilation CD featuring tracks from all three acts! Message any band’s facebook pages and we will hook you up!
We want you all to be there, start to finish, so for the fans who show up early, just prior to show time we will pass out free raffle tickets to everyone in the crowd. After the last song of the night, we will be giving back to all of you and kicking down all kinds of cool prizes!
Doors at 8pm, show starts at 9pm $8 cover charge day of show 21+W/ID Contact bands here and get your $5 ticket and free CD!
The People Now are recording brand New Music for 2014
After a phenomenal trip to #NAMM2014 in Los Angeles last month, meeting many new faces in the music industry and sharing moments with legends, The People Now got uber inspired to return to Seattle and write some of our finest music yet. So far, 2014 has been a great year! Our single “One by One” was featured on Fox News and JoeTV as official music of the NFL Superbowl Champions the Seattle Seahawks, and our Italian brothers Neodea, our first band in our international music exchange program called Bands Beyond Borders, released their single “Breaking News” as part of Seattle label’s London Tone Records 52×52 Compilation. We are not even close to being done…
Through our own investment and construction, we have completed our new studio, Huge Studios™, built with our own hands, sweat, tears, and likely a lot of beer. This year, The People Now are gonna rock our world audience with new music in surround sound, and recording has already begun! A quick click to follow us on Twitter, subscribe to us on YouTube, or like us on Facebook, and you’ll know the moment we post new music availability. Personally, I am so flippin’ excited for the latest from TPN; its got booty like a ferris wheel, its got the shape of a tornado lookin’ for an RV Park, it rocks twice as much as half a steel bunny, and its full bodied and juicey like a Washington Cabernet: its huge.
The People Now‘s single “One by One” featured on Q13 Fox #Seahawks Sports Shows and Seahawks.com
If you live in Seattle, or really anywhere in The States, you may know how well our home town team, the Seattle Seahawks, are doing. The sports fan experience to me is an awesome escape from our usual, disconnected world, where we mostly communicate via text message and e-mail inTO a world where I can sit down with good friends at home, at a bar, or #Qwestfield stadium and feel the fun of connecting with real people over a common goal. Throwing my fist in the air with all my buddies or people I don’t even know over the success of a team is a great experience. I’m sure we have all felt this union in some way, and it brings energy to a cause that could have never been there with a lone voice. Our song One By One is exactly about this idea. Only WE can rise up and create decibel levels that break records, only WE can scream so loud it causes the earth to quake. *** We are SUPER stoked to announce that…
KCPQ13 and JoeTV will be featuring our song One By One on their Seahawks Saturday Night (1/18/14) at 10PM on KCPQ13 and JoeTV in Seattle. :-)
. …What an honor for our hometown team and news station to allow us to support them in their fight for the NFC Championship against the San Francisco #49ers this weekend, and (with the voices of the 12th Men!) then the #Superbowl !! Tune in here to get the latest scoop on what is going on in this exciting battle where the Seattle Seahawks are dominating the NFL to possibly once more stand on the Superbowl field. It’s local pride, it’s fun and it’s exiting to be a part of a movement of hope, as its more than “just a game.” What it really is?
The People Now to attend National Association of Music Merchants NAMM, 2014.
#NAMM. Its one of the music industry’s largest conventions of the year; where music related merchants drool over the latest in music gear, and new ideas for the next years lineup of equipment are hatched. One of our biggest passions – to write, record, and make our best music, and this is also true of our live show. When we perform, we meld elements of lights, surround sound, and video projection into a synergy with our music and performance. All of these elements stem from what we do in our lives when we aren’t together as The People Now. We also share a passion for how technology can help us create our best-est and most badass-est show for our fans.
I work for an audio video company, where I am a technician that sets up and programs lights along with designing and running audio reinforcement from corporate events to concerts. Dagna Silesia owns and works in her own custom guitar and repair shop in Shoreline, WA called Silesia Guitars. Jonny Smokes is not only a one man band that uses an intense array of pedals and equipment to control his show, but also is a hired guitar/bass/lighting technician gun with many skills in his arsenal. Garth Hockersmith is a devil of a producer and recording engineer in our very own Huge™Studios, and has worked with incredible local talent such as Amanda Hardy and Intisaar Jubran.
The thing is, building and creating is what we do – with and without music. This year at NAMM, we will do our best to learn from our peers, share who we are with others of talent, and check out what’s coming down the pipes to keep improving our music, our sound, our show, and ourselves. Follow our #instagram to get sneak peeks from “on the inside” and maybe even come with us…to Disneyland!
If you know our guitarist Jonny Smokes you know how dedicated to music he is and the business of living solely as a musician. Recently and suddenly he lost a very large quantity of gigs that were supposed to be guaranteed. It is very hard to find good paying gigs in and around this area at short notice so he is in dire straits in the coming weeks to find some money for basic necessities like food, rent and bills. We just got a portion of our online store up for the holiday season and we are going to funnel all profits of our CD sales into Jonny’s pocket for the next month to help him get by. So this holiday season give a gift and get a gift by purchasing our CD from the paypal link below. Thank you!
We had such a great time helping Fates Warning close out there tour here in Seattle! Thank you to all the other bands that helped make this such a great show: Graphic Light Theory, Custom and Artizan.
We are heading into our warm studio to bring you all a new album in the Spring but, in the mean time we will be heading to NAMM in January. Keep checking in for exclusive behind the scenes videos of our recording process and maybe little bits and pieces of the album to come. Stay tuned!
