All the members of The Adam Effect would like to take a moment to wish everyone a happy fourth of July. Thank you God for bringing us the freedom to worship you. Thank you soldiers for fighting for this freedom. It is called freeDOM of religion, not free FROM religion. Happy Birthday and God bless the USA.
Gabriel Brownlee is an up and coming Hip Hop Artist. He uses his artistic lyrics and melody to portray a concept and message with a very original sound. His lyrics flow out in repetition on a steady beat that keeps the groove going strong. We expect to hear more from this artist within the next year or two, and look forward to hearing more tunes. In the meantime, you can check out a single called “No Mo Solo.”
We had a fantastic pre-production session last night with producer Dave Kushner. His input is invaluable and thse songs are coming together really well. Can't wait to get into the studio next weekend and start tracking!
Tracy's agent Miranda Silver has big plans to put her in movies, which would mean the end of VulGarrity: The Series. Shawn and the crew concoct a scheme to put an end to Miranda's plans - and her life.

So, a few weeks ago we were having RSM. That's our churches student night, and a few weeks ago my dad (the leader in Greeley) went to get us dinner! ROMA! Ok, anyway... he said that he wanted an original song by the time he got back, so we tried it out. I messed around on the guitar, (I'm the worship leader for RSM in Greeley) and came up with this really odd song. So tomorrow for RSM, I will be performing this song for the students there, it will only be a few people, and then it will also be recorded! Don't worry, I actually did write it out and everything, and I hope this becomes a normal because it was fun and tomorrow night people will hear this song! I hope you all get the chance to watch and listen to the live version that will be posted here! I think you will like it!
Blind Pig is proud to add slide guitar wizard Roy Rogers' 1987 label debut to its "Vinyl Masters Series." Roy powers his way through classic and original blues, aided by special guests John Lee Hooker and Allen Toussaint.
"Rogers is both a sensational and a sensitive blues guitarist - certainly among the finest slide guitarists playing today."
- San Francisco Examiner

Happy Friday! Episode 4 comes out next week. In the meantime here's the music video from the episode, slightly modified (the episode version will contain bloopers from the set, this one doesn't). Most of this footage is from the VulGarrity: The Series Screening Party at the Colosseum on 6/10.
We are excited to announce that Mike Wendy, of Test Chicken fame, will be in the house when we hit the stage at The Store, 2002 N. Halsted on Friday, August 19th. It should make for a fun and combustible night! We haven't seen Mike since our Carolina Mountain Jam; You can hear what that sounded like by clicking the music link on our site. We are now officially stoked & are looking forward to seeing you there!
After a slow most of the month of June, TAE is gearing it back up and getting ready for what God's putting on the table for us during July and the rest of this summer. Getting ready for some awesome, awesome worship at some festival shows with more upcoming. We will put in more details as we learn them ourselves. Still working on a CD project as we had to back curner it due to some issues. Back at that soon, I know you guys can't wait for those, they will be awesome I promise. Shirt order ready to be filled and looks like the first order will fly. Thank you Jesus for letting this happen for us.
Beginning tracking out at the new RAF HQ "The Rape Barn" barn out in the country. The results will likely include an upcoming 7", as potentially an EP or Full Length depending on whether or not our incantations are up to snuff.
Stay tuned. This will be a sessions project full of special releases. The first of which we hope to have finished and packaged in Fall of 2011.
First off, we want to thank all the folks who came out to Silo's in Napa last weekend. What an energized and wild crowd!
Coming up: We're breaking new ground this weekend. This Friday June 24th, we will be at the Thunder Valley Resort for a co-bill with Zoo Station (the complete U2 experience). Petty Theft kicks off the show promptly at 8PM (with a 50 minute set) On Saturday, June 25th, we head back to Pleasanton for our first appearance at El Balazo. We play all night starting at 9PM.
We have all kinds of great shows coming up this summer and we encourage you to go to our website, or our Facebook page and look at our full schedule for a show near you.
One of the highlights will be our 3rd year in a row performing at the "BBQ on the Lawn" show at Rancho Nicasio on Sunday July 10th! This a fantastic event for the whole family. Come hang outside on the beautiful grounds and enjoy the amazing BBQ and speciality summer cocktails. Plus this year we will be performing 2 sets! So bring some blankets and lawn chairs and get ready to dance barefoot on the lawn!
Bringing it All Back Home has its own set of challenges. Without the modulation of a professional microphone pre-amp, David's exaggerated vocal dynamics cause trouble for our heroes as they try tracking "Light the Dark" at Casa De Smallman.
Last Saturday's show (on 6/18) at What's Up was great!
All the other bands were really impressive! Thanks to all of the other bands who played, and of course a big "thank you!" to everyone else who showed up!
The next L'eclipse Nue gig will be next month, on 7/21, at Koiwa Bushbash. It sounds like it's going to be a pretty cool show! I've been told that the other bands will be Plugdead, Heartland, and Nanraka. The start time and ticket price haven't been announced yet, but I'll let you all know as soon as I found out.
For one night only Hamer & Isaacs Gypsy Swing Band will be in London performing at the notorious Gaz Mayall's Gaz's Rockin' Blues night tomorrow at the St Moritz Club in Soho. It is always rammed with people - it is completely bonkers and well worth a visit. Come and check it out:
From the same recording session that brought you "No Feelings", the latest Moriarty track, now available to download for free is "Shadows of Manhattan". An ode to the people of NYC. It's another stomper, with a "Glam" and also a "Grunge" feel to it we think. Hope you like it as much as we do!
To contact a member of the Moriartys office, and possibly (depending on the content!) get a message through to one of the boys, send an email to:

Another great night at O'Neill's. I wish the band had drunk as much as the group of guys that keep trying to join us on stage and who had a bite of Mark's keyboard. Must have been the pull of Steve's shirt. Some fantastic dancers, the girls, not the crazy guys.
