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

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

Matthew Ebel dot net is now Ziibra

I’ve been announcing this everywhere else, but it occurred to me that I haven’t mentioned it on my own blog yet. So here goes… My old subscription site, Matthew Ebel dot net, has now been moved to a new platform! I’ve teamed up with Seattle-based Ziibra so I don’t have to wrestle with WordPress and

The Three-Con Report

Runtt and I played three conventions in three consecutive weeks, each one with a different theme. Normally people write a post-con wrap-up after each weekend getaway, but chances are good most people don’t hit one every week! I’ve got photos from some of them, so click the big pictures to get to the galleries. Furthemore

Anyone Want A Cat?

UPDATE: Murphy now has a new home! Thanks to everyone who scoured their networks helping me find the right family to make him a part of. I’ll post a more detailed update later, but at this point my Adorable Fatball is happily weighing down someone else’s couch. Anyone want the World’s Most Adorable Cat™? In

Our first show as an outer-space trio. Our first show at Arisia, Boston’s biggest sci-fi convention. Our first show with video cues, robot dialogue, and a bona-fide villain trying to take us down. And now it’s yours! I’m hoping to get the HD video from Arisia, but that may take a while. In the mean

The Copper Evolution

After months of fine-tuning (a never-ending process, actually), we finally debuted the new live show, The Copper Revolution. Runtt, the robots, and I were joined by bassist Matt Pompei for the first crash site (Boston), and then managed to crash once again just a week later in Chattanooga. After two shows, the reception is already
