thanks you guys, and much love to everyone we met on tour!
Saturday, March 26th:
- It’s all in the name. Adventure will take you on an electro pop journey that will have you dancing throughout. Adventure musically incorporates the majestic nature of outer space to have you feeling weightless, like an astronaut dance party on the moon.
-Drums, synths, and vocals; Unicorn Domination doesn’t need much to have you empowered and dancing to their simple yet catchy club electro pop.
Raised By Television
- A music project centered around the belief that ideas are living entities and should evolve with the artist, Raised By Television busts out some loud experimental electronic indie rock to overrule any thought that may be in your head.

We’re Back! We had a great time in Los Angeles. Our first show there was with some friends LACO$TE. They play glitchy synth-pop, it was a lot of fun with an enormous sound system. We have some video from the show, we’ll post it as soon as we get the sound fixed.
We have two shows coming up in Portland, the first at the Treehouse on March 12th with the ex-girlfriends club, Cat Head and Holy Tentacles.
After that, We’re opening for the awesome 8-bit band Adventure from Baltimore Maryland, at backspace, on March 26th with Unicorn Domination. Tickets are $10, available now at brown paper tickets.

LA River Underground tunnels… lots of graffiti, no CHUDs, that’s good. We’ve had the week off hanging out with Miew’s family, it’s been nice and relaxing. We’re getting ready for our shows this weekend, we’re kicking off our Los Angeles Shows at the Silver Factory Studios (4310 W Jefferson Blvd, Los Angeles, CA) Tomorrow night with our Friends Dasgubell.

"Have you heard the joke about the band? It hasn’t been made yet.
We’re not playing another song until we get more beer.”

It’s a sunny sunday in Oakland California this morning, and everyone is catching up on some much needed sleep.
We spent Friday night at the lil red lion in Eureka california. There’s a crazy hum in the sound system some locals told us was normal- I’m pretty sure it’s the cathode rays from the digital jukebox. We met Amy May who used to book there, she has an awesome collection of tour posters (I uploaded some pictures) and let us sleep on her floor.
Saturday started at 6:00 am, and we drove from Eureka to Berkeley, about 400 miles. We got to Berkeley Community Media to tape a live performance, and we had just set the studio up when the power went out. It was raining pretty hard outside; there was one street light without power, and then the building we were in.
After two hours without electricity, we tore down our equipment in the dark and drove for a few minutes into oakland. We played a house show last night that our friend John from the Molestations had set up for us. They’ll be touring to portland in about a month, check them out if you’re a Stooges fan. He also shot a live video of our set, I’ll post that up as soon as I get it from him.
We have the next week to recover from the first leg of our tour and spend some time with family. Our next booked show is Saturday, February 26th at the Silver Factory Studios in Los Angeles. They’re at the new 4310 W Jefferson Blvd address, remember.

Hey folks, this is Maxwell from Raised by Television. I’m sitting in a coffee shop in Arcata, it’s beautiful outside! We had a great show last night at Six Rivers Brewery in McKinnleyville. Excellent food and amazing house brews.
We stayed in the F street warehouse (Mischief lab? 1041 F Street, Arcata CA), thanks to Heather Lewis from The Humboldt Spin Collective. There’s some great photos of the space i have to upload.
Tonight, we’re heading down to Eureka to play the Lil’ Red Lion, then we’re off to oakland.
