Deathline International

Friday, December 15th, 2006

I managed to catch my friend GW playing keys for the group Deathline International. They had a gig last night at the Voodoo Lounge in San Jose, which isn’t too far away, so after missing previous opportunities, I finally saw them perform. GW has talked about the group for ages, but I […]

Thursday, December 8th, 2005

I met up with my friend, Goh Nakamura to give him a hand on a project he’s working on. It would be rather indecorous to reveal any details, but it’s quite an exciting opportunity for him. Goh helped me and John Hinson out with a demo track featured on REDD47.com. Since January […]
