Band Smoosh likes this picture

I forgot to mention Asy of Smoosh contacted me a few weeks ago to arrange use of a few of my pictures from one of their live performances. The following is currently Smoosh's MySpace profile pic.

Smoosh @ Neumos 5.18.08

Smoosh is a sister-duo who started writing songs and performing in their 'tween years -- a mere 5 years ago. Asy and Chloe acheived enough noteriety in their first year to open for the likes of Cat Power, Sleater-Kinney, Jimmy Eat World, Death Cab for Cutie and even Pearl Jam by the end of 2004. [#] At first a novelty, the young ladies have matured their song-writing and performing skills to grow a solid fanbase which reaches well beyond their own demographic group.

This picture is from a Smoosh performance at the Head Like a Kite CD release party this summer. Speaking of HLAK, you really MUST check this group out. Asy co-wrote and sings the track "Daydream Vacation" on HLAK's 2008 release There is Loud Laughter Everywhere. Stream that tune on HLAK's MySpace page, and while you're there check out one of my favs from HLAK's release, "We Were So Entangled." Dave Einmo sings into an analog phone on this one. Rad.
