Two Days at Mad Oak

So the last two days have been something amazing. My powers of articulation fail me, so I’ll just read the transcript of the little man upstairs in my head that’s been doing cartwheels for 48 hours. “HolyshitholyshitholyshitholyshitholyshitholyshitAWWYEEEAHholyshitholyshitholyshit…” Actually, it goes on like that for twelve pages. And that was just the first day. I’ll spare

It’s Slacker-Backer Time!

So if you hadn’t noticed, we made it to about 300% of our initial goal on Kickstarter! But now what? Well, until we get all the goodies assembled we can still take backers who may have missed the month-long campaign. The Kickstartering (that’s a word, dammit) may be over, but thanks to the miracle of

A First Look at Mad Oak Studios

I believe in the same rule that Alton Brown has for homebrew supply stores: If it looks slick and well-decorated, you probably don’t want to be there. Mad Oak Studios just moved to a new building in Allston, MA, so when I headed there to scope the place out in person, it took me twenty

Live at Tiny Ninja Café

Slap Me On Vinyl And Call Me Captain

I had an awesome time in Seattle last Friday night! Tiny Ninja Café (now called the Stone Way Café, apparently) is a beautiful place with the most amazing backdrop I’ve ever performed in front of. The people that filled the Café were a hell of a lot of fun to play for, and now some

Oktoberbash 2014 Is On

If you’re a Matthew Ebel Officer or Entourage member, you’re invited to party with me in Boston! The sixth annual Beer Bash is happening, this time with an Oktoberfest theme. That’s right, we made 10 gallons of Oktoberfest-style ale, a ton of pretzels, and we’ll be making beer brats in a way most of you

Hiding Behind My Hand

Creating a New Genre is a Serious Gamble

Sometimes it frightens me what my fans give me the courage to attempt. I’m trying to stay calm and collected about this whole High Orbit Saves The Pandas thing, but underneath I’m chewing my fingernails down to the cuticle. What the hell was I thinking trying to cram science fiction, rock music, and comedy into

Matthew Ebel’s Laws of Touring: The Drive

I’ve played concerts all over the USA and there’s one constant that most touring musicians already know: People don’t know how to drive. Seattle drivers are maniacs, Boston drivers are assholes, Nashville drivers are NASCAR wanna-be’s, and Ohio drivers are most likely taking a power nap behind the wheel. Everywhere else, the drivers are an

Live Concert Footage from FA:United 2014

Live Concert Footage from FA:United 2014

Flanked by talented songwriters Fox Amoore and Pepper Coyote, we spent well over an hour playing each others tunes, auctioning off our saliva for charity, making a toy cat piano sing like the Beatles, and raising money for the NJSPCA. It was one of the best times I’ve had on stage in a long time,

High Orbit Kickstarts The Pandas, Starting September 1 2014

Saving The Pandas, Raising The Bar

It’s been a good run for The Copper Revolution so far. I’d never tried to produce a theatrical, sci-fi-meets-steampunk piano rock show before, so this was something of a major gamble for me both artistically and professionally. Sure, I’ve been playing concerts for geeks for years now, but it felt like I was crossing over

The Economics of Pooping On Your Friends

We all do it. Something pisses us off and we need to tell the world- or at least our Twitter followers. The process of releasing, and thereby providing relief from, strong or repressed emotions is called catharsis and it’s a necessary mental function. Just like pooping is a necessary biological function. Bitching about something is

Mixing It Like The Foo Fighters

So like anyone with taste, I’ve become a huge fan of the Foo Fighters. On top of the fact that Dave Grohl’s a geek and a mind-blowing performer, the dude’s also got an amazing voice, their music is interesting without being overproduced, and it runs the gamut from hardcore to soft and passionate. You’ve also

The Most Dumberest Person In The World

I’m not kidding, this is an email I just got yesterday morning. And it was via my contact form, so it had to be a human being sending this to me. I added emphasis just to point out how special-needs this person is… From: Dana Ariel <dana@thesalonoutlet.com> Subject: Sponsored Blog Post in the Beauty Vertical
