One time, at Bandcamp…

Check out the new platform for Nice Bass tunes over at! You will find full-length albums, compilations (including both volumes of Lowell & Behold for FREE), EPs, and bootlegs (sets from jazz giants and local heroes).


Yesterday, Strange Creek. Tomorrow, Bonnaroo.

ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 9 2010, Boston/Lowell’s GOOSEPIMP ORCHESTRA will set sail toward the hot sunshine of Manchester Tennessee, to take part in one of the largest and loudest music festivals in the world. In proper funk-gypsy style, we have a caravan of our closest friends and freaks with vehicles filled with musical instruments and costumes following the band to BONNAROO 2010. If you are there, and you get bored of JAY-Z or GWAR (what the fuck?!), be sure to check out the WORMTOWN tent and catch Goosepimp hitting it all weekend. 6 sets between Thursday night and Sunday morning.

ALSO, thank you to everyone who came out to the annual STRANGE CREEK campout and music fest last weekend. We had so much fun and enjoyed an incredible amount of talented bands (check out Garage Mahal or The Sam Kininger Band). SEE YOU AT WORMFEST?

If you want more Goosepimp, head over to the BOOTLEGS page and download our LIVE AT LOWELL WINTERFEST performance! Thank you Emilie Palmer for the photos.


NEW page! bootlegs!

Get your live music fix! I added a new page called BOOTLEGS, where I will post recordings of live shows.  Right now you can hear some bangers from the 2010 Winter Jazz Fest and President Soup’s performance from Centro in Downtown Lowell.  Right-click and save the files to your computer! or copy the link and paste it in your browser… I need to set up the link better.

NYC Winter Jazz Fest Bootlegs

2010nyc jazzLast weekend, the 2010 NYC Winter Jazz Fest kicked off for a two-night exhibition of the finest new musical acts in the city. Over 50 groups were sprawled across 5 stages in the West Village, showcasing their unique sounds and instrumentation. I brought my trusty bootlegger to Kenny’s Castaways and The Bitter End, and taped some of the most memorable performances of the weekend.  Download mp3s of The Claudia Quintet (actually a sextet that night), Bobby Previte‘s New Bump Quartet, and Elliott Sharp‘s Terraplane.
Right Click and select “Save As.”
