Erie, Pa. “Kodachrome” Release Show

In studio at Behrend BVZ on Rebel Girl Radio with Auda Kontroll.

Hey all! I’ve traveled to Erie, Pa. where I’ll be joined by some of my very favorite musicians for the second release show of the “Kodachrome” record. This Sat., May 16, we shall converge on the King’s Rook Club from 10 p.m. till 2 a.m. and beyond for some acoustic rock n’ roll… or whatever you want to call it.

Joining me will be Matt “Broke” Boland, Andi Wondersound, and Chet Vincent of Pittsburgh’s The Big Bend. Each of us will share with you a rockin’ acoustic set of original music. And closing out the night, I’ll be performing with my full band, The Graveyard Orchestra.

SO GET EXCITED!

We all made this happen together. Even if you were unable to attend either release show, even if you were unable to back the Kickstarter, the support of my friends and the community brought this music into the world. In the form of a record. In the form of these events. In the form of a shared experience to mend our broken hearts and find the strength to fight another day.

Sincerely,
~ Victory

Solo practice

  Inner monologue of Victory during solo practice: 

  1. FIRST! Practice your set. 
  2. Now you can work on new material. 
  3. Ok, pull out the kick drum. 

To guitar: “We don’t hug enough.” 

Release Week

This is it.

The culminating moment of my musical life, cut to vinyl, crafted from my heart. It feels like I tore the arteries out of my body and used them to string my guitar. Then I set about recording the noise and presenting it to the people like some kind of carnival display.

Well, I feel like I’m on the Rollercoaster – all adrenaline, excitement, and fear. Listening to the click of the chain on the tracks. Coming up closer and closer to that crest.
We’ll barrel-roll down that first hill and it’s gonna be a hell of a ride.

This is it.

The most important thing I’ve done thus far. In my whole life, really.
The “Kodachrome Heart” vinyl record.
This Friday.

This is it.
