Rooftop Recordings: Appetite

9 Jul

Teddy Briggs aka Appetite

I’ve been having trouble posting because I’m still basking in the glory of last Fourth of July weekend, with the best friends and non-audio adventures. But we fit an amazing show in there too, featuring K Records founder Calvin Johnson, Joey Casio and my boy Appetite at the Robot Rocket Residence in Davis.

Teddy Briggs debuted a new full band for this show, with Carson McWhirter, Jesse Phillips, Addison Quarles and Sam Coe, and they frickin’ held it down. Here’s “Warn Me Right”:

Teddy was the first person to give me a lesson in audio editing, back when he was the KDVS production director and I was a lowly new DJ. We use Adobe Audition at the station, but I’ve grown to prefer Audacity in all its open-source jankiness.

The show also happened to be a going-away party of sorts for me. Thanks especially to Craig and Sally for making that happen, Teddy for his sweet pre-show dedication, and a dozen KDVS volunteers for letting me ride atop the KDVS billboard as they marched it to its new home!

    : D Awesome. Thanks for sharing. Did you record the whole show? I’d love to hear it. The version of Eating Chips and Checking Email on the KDVS commercial sounds intriguing too.

      I did record the whole thing, but there was a lot of chitter chatter throughout. If you want the whole thing, I could send you a CD or something.

      And the BTBB song on the KDVS video is the same version that’s on the album, plus a clip from their “Live in Studio A” broadcast during the 2006 KDVS fundraiser (the “K – D – V – S”). They raised $1,000 in one hour! Superheroes, those guys.

        That’s awesome . You’re the best. However you want to do it is cool with me. I know it can be a pain to go mail stuff so if you want to email me a zip file or something that would work too. My email is Ill send to my addy if that’s easier for you too. Thanks!! Oh and do you have any others? I’m a big appetite junkie right now haha. Trying to hear everything I can get my hands on. :P
