Uncovered: going to mastering 8/3; big party moved to Sept 29
Work is continuing. I haven't posted any new previews on my bandcamp as I've been too focused on finishing tracks -- the whole thing goes to mastering in less than one week!
I can divulge my final track list (track order is not final; it is an advanced logic puzzle of style/content variety & flow):
with 3 additional bonus tracks. The blueness of the spreadsheet cell says how close to final the track is.
Downloads will go out to kickstarter backers sometime in August, but physical packages won't be ready until sometime in September.
Biggest news, for Bay Area folks: remember when I told you all to save the date for Sept 17 for the big release concert/party? I'm afraid that date didn't work out with any of the venues I was considering. But the good news is, I have nailed down the Uptown in Oakland (near 19th St BART station) for Thursday, September 29. Every single kickstarter backer is going to be guestlisted for this event, and I want you to bring all your friends, too. Cover charge for anyone not guestlisted is just $7. Doors are at 9 pm. The venue is 21+. I'm working on assembling a dreamteam of guest musicians, bellydancers, and a DJ and a VJ. I want this night to be tremendously successful and hope to see a huge number of you come out. I'm going to do 2 sets, one of original music and one including a bunch of the covers on Uncovered, and I'm putting a lot of work into making sure this night comes off completely awesomely.
