Re: Sasquatch 2010

So who was playing drums for them at Sasquatch?

By the way, The Hold Steady were FANTASTIC on Saturday! Nada Surf was also terrific. The Posies played a bunch of new songs which were more meh, than anything else.

Re: Update

Just had to pat myself on the back. On Feb. 13th, I wrote this in the Band Nerd Section, "So, is Nabil no longer with the band? Time to start calling Mike Musberger? (Might as well get all 9 former/current Posies in there.)" Not bad, if I do say so. We drummers aren't always a bad lot. Mik...

Re: Bonnaroo Help

I went to the Sasquatch Festival this year (and last) so I think I can speak about a couple of these bands. Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs were a helluva lot of fun, so I'd go with them. Bon Iver was okay, but nothing outstanding. I have never seen Rafael, so I can't speak about him/her/it. Jenny Lewis in a hear...

Music Venues in Seattle

The band I play in (alt. country/roots rock) is looking to play up in Seattle again. (We're from Portland, OR.) We have played in Seattle a couple of times already (Jules Mae, The Shanty Tavern, etc..) but we are looking for some other venues. Any ideas or suggestions? We know about the Comet and th...

Re: Question about Nabil's Drums on the DVD

I had never thought about it quite this way before, but I've been in bands with over a dozen drummers in my life, and played with a dozen more. There are plenty of drummer jokes out there I won't bother repeating, but it can be generally true that tightly-wound dudes end up playing the drums. It's ...

Re: Question about Nabil's Drums on the DVD

Nabil is actually a human time-piece, a total bad-ass, and the tight feel is entirely down to him. Playing snare and cymbals over a kit isn't the hardest thing, because there's no kick drum to worry about. We had a hilarious moment during the recording of PTDTB when we measured Nabil's tempo at the...

Re: Question about Nabil's Drums on the DVD

Thanks for the info John. So, I'm assuming that Nabil played to a click on that song to be able to overdub the different drum parts? Otherwise he would have to be one helluva bad ass to play different kits and have them line up perfectly. The Commander has a looser feel-as far as the drums are conce...

Re: Question about Nabil's Drums on the DVD

Good ear. We recorded the drums a few different ways for PTDTB, and for Fire Island I wanted a pretty dead sound, so we set up the drums in a heavily padded iso-booth and recorded them dead and dry. Then we recorded the snare and cymbals as a separate take in the live room. You win the prize. That'...

Re: Question about Nabil's Drums on the DVD

John- I apologize in advance for these "technical" drum questions. Did Nabil use the Gretsch kit to record "Putting the Days to Bed"? Here is why I ask- The drums have a very tight, almost close-miced sound (especially on Fire Island) although the snare buzz comes through like yo...

Re: Question about Nabil's Drums on the DVD

Liesbeth- Yeah, in the dvd the front "skin" says "The Long Winters" in a cursive script. I don' remember ever seeing that when I saw them live. I play drums in a band in Portland (played at the Shanty Tavern and at Jules Mae in Seattle) and I have a hankerin' for a head like Nabi...

Question about Nabil's Drums on the DVD

Hey all, this is my first post, so be gentle. I have seen TLW several times and have been a fan of Nabil's drumming from the time I saw him play with Micro Mini-going way back. I know he used to use Boom Theory drums, but on the dvd it looks like he is using a Gretsch kit with a Ludwig snare. Anyone...
