  1. Upcoming Show – Circle Bar – Friday Oct 4th

    September 27, 2013 by Something Burning

    Happy to announce that we’re gonna be playing a show at Circle Bar with a Swedish ambient pop band called Siren Sea next Friday, Oct. 4th!

    Its safe to say its been a while since our last show. With all the logistics of getting our upcoming EP finished (recording, mixing, mastering, producing, etc…) we haven’t been able to play live a long time. We’re happy to say that the EP is done now, although we still need to get the physical CDs shipped. Hopefully we’ll have them in a month or so. Anyway, the lack of playing live has been eating away at us, so we are happy to finally get back out and play for some real people.

    We have been working up a lot of new material, and also now have a new drummer. Our old drummer, Pepe, unfortunately had to part ways with us to follow a more business oriented career path. We are sad to have lost Pepe, who was a great friend and musician. However, we were fortunately able to fill his shoes with another talented drummer named Cairon, who currently studies jazz performance at University of New Orleans.

    We hope you will come out to Circle Bar on Friday and experience some of our new sounds.

    -Set starts at 10pm, and there is a $5 cover-

    Make sure to catch us this weekend at at least one of these two events!

    This Friday – 4/19

    House Party @ Bottom Shelf Lounge
    4115 Loyola Ave. (right off of Napoleon)
    – NO Cover, 1$ Drinks –
    Something Burning plays an acoustic set @ 11pm, come start gettin’ drunk at 10!

    This Saturday – 4/20 – Starting @ 8pm

    Uptown Sounds Festival – Taking over Freret St. –
    Music, Art, and Drinks at 3 venues: Gasa Gasa, Dat Dog, The Other Bar
    Something Burning is playing an Acoustic Set at Dat Dog @ 9PM
    We really start at 9, because Dat Dog closes around 10.

    Come out to this awesome establishment this Saturday and have an the most amazing customized hot dog, sausage, or bratwurst you could ever ask for, grab a beer, and just relax and listen to the softer side of Something Burning. If you have never been to Dat Dog, that’s really tragic and you should really come experience it this Saturday. If you have been to Dat Dog, then you know that it is the shit. Where would you honestly rather be on 4/20? There isn’t a better time and place for you to come listen to SB’s acoustic vibes, so come on out (if you haven’t passed out already at that point).

    March 19, 2013 by Something Burning

    Join us for a night of eclectic rock music in a beautiful venue at the Old US Mint performance hall. Its right on Esplanade across the street from Dragon’s Den.

    The Mint is largely a museum, but it also has a nice intimate concert space on the 3rd floor that has great video/sound recording capabilities.

    We are looking forward to getting some good live footage, so come on out and get yourself in our next video!

    By the way, This is a FREE EVENT, open to all ages.

    Bring your friends and family.

    Doors are at 8. We will be starting at 9pm, so get there early. Its not a late night show, so either you can go home fairly early, or go out to Frenchman Street afterwards and see some more Live music! (We recommend the second option)

  4. Hard at work

    February 25, 2013 by Something Burning

    This past Saturday was a very long day in the studio.

    I am happy to say that we’re making good progress on the upcoming EP.

    Gotta give a lot of credit to PJ. He has been acting as our engineer while also playing on all of the songs. This time around, he got to the studio extra early to set up mics and get the session ready all by himself. I then had to gather the troops (“the Stang” and Pepe) while he set up the studio (which, by the way, is no task to be overlooked).

    We have come to recognize at this point that studio sessions always take longer than expected to get started. So in a way, it was expected that the session wouldn’t actually start rolling until close to 4pm, almost four hours after PJ got there to set up. It was a good thing we had the studio booked until midnight. We managed to get a rough tracks of 6 songs in the next 7 or so hours, and ended up getting out of the studio around 10:30 or 11.

    It was a lot of work, but it was worth it. This is going to be the first official EP that we’ve released. Believe me, we want to share our hard work with you, but we will have to wait until the time is right. Not until the music is perfect (or as close as we can get it). There is no doubt that the EP will be ready for y’all by the end of this semester, but we are hoping for mid to late April.

    Something Burning is also planning on playing a show or two before our release party. We will give more updates when the details on this stuff are official. Keep a look out for an upcoming show in March!

    Hey Yall,

    Carnival season has come back around, and people are starting to get into the mood down here in New Orleans. There have already been a bunch of parades, and Something Burning had a great time playing an acoustic set at a Pre Krewe Du Vieux Party at the Bottom Shelf Lounge last Friday. To add to the good old Mardi Gras madness that is starting up yet again, 

    Its about time for Superbowl weekend! And, as you are likely aware, the Superbowl is going to be here, in New Orleans. 

    We are happy to announce that we will be performing at the Super Block Party in Mid-City the Saturday of the Superbowl weekend. The party is going to be a big NOLA neighborhood crawfish boil, complete with lots of beer, crawfish, music, and good company. Come join us next Saturday and lets kick off Mardi Gras with this Super Block Party!

    PS –  We are had at work in the studio, working on a soon to be released EP (we’re shooting for late March). Keep your eyes and ears open.
