Tourblog by Tripp : Steamboat Springs, CO : 10-09-08

It's no secret... I love Steamboat Springs, but not for the reason you may think. It's a great skiing destination for tons of people, but I love it for the people. Every time we have played there, we've had a venue full of people rawking out... it doesn't matter if it's in the height of the winter season, or in the off-season. This time was no different!

What was different was: This marks Souleye's first return to Steamboat since he moved to San Francisco (so BLVD could join forces once and for all!). We had a great turnout, and I know it was especially sweet for Souleye since he knows so many people in town.

BLVD has also been getting the royal treatment when it comes to the airwaves. Steamboat's local radio station has been playing Stamina (off our new album "Music For People") religiously. Much love to KFMU! We were also interviewed for the first time to television at Steamboat's local TV-18, which is broadcast to all the resort hotels. It was a fun experience to be on Steamboat Today, and somehow we all managed to be there for the 8am live broadcast! For myself especially, this is no small feat.

The icing on the cake was on our way to Denver (to begin our 8-show run opening for Lotus). Instead of just hearing ABOUT our song being played on KFMU, we tuned in and actually heard it for realz. Thanks so much to the entire Steamboat community for supporting BLVD!

Tourblog by Tripp : Club DubDub : Houston : 10/4/08

We drove through the night from the Coalessence Festival in Eureka Springs, Arkansas to Houston, Texas... the first time BLVD would be visiting! Hurricane Ike hit the city about 3 weeks before, and the stories sounded like some pretty intense clean-up happened over the weeks leading up to our arrival... century-old trees with 10-foot stumps up-routed into the air... Showers of glass from windows breaking in the high winds... Days and days of chainsawing broken limbs... my favorite quote: "There's a sailboat in my yard and it's not mine."

Club Dub Dub is actually in a residential area called Houston Heights, nestled in the trees behind the owner's house. The venue itself actually has a rich history of bands playing there over the years. It's become a favorite tour stop for many bands on the road due the intimate setting and amazing hospitality. We were treated to a great dinner and had an entire section of the house to call home for the night.

It was an honor for BLVD to be the first performance at the Club since the hurricane had rolled through. The start time was earlier that we are used to for a Saturday night, but a good number of people made it out by 9:00 when we started. By the time we were in the thick of the show, you would have thought we were in a downtown club by how much the people were getting down.

The people of Houston that came out to the show were amazing and encouraged us to come again, and it was fun to spend time hanging out after the show. I was joking with some people that it was a pleasure to be done with the show before midnight, because usually we would be rolling into a hotel at 4:00 in the morning! But the concensus was that rocking at Club Dub Dub was the perfect way for people to shake off the vibes from the hurricane. Thanks for inviting us!

'Music For People' Digital Distribution Begins Today, October 7, 2008

BLVD’s “Music For People” Brings Electro Hip Hop To The Masses

(San Francisco, CA – Tuesday October 7, 2008) – BLVD fuses live instruments with electronic production techniques to bring their audiences a refined and progressive musical experience. Combing hip-hop, house and breakbeat they continue to break down boundaries between dance club culture and the live music community.

BLVD was a three-piece instrumental ensemble until 2007 when they were joined on stage by the jet-setting MC Souleye. They had an immediate connection during an impromptu performance at the Tucson Gem and Jam and have been together ever since. BLVD's live interpretations of what are generally considered to be electronic musical forms blend naturally with Souleye's conscious and rhythmic approach to rapping. Souleye's partnership with BLVD is a natural convergence of two unique yet like-minded styles, and continues to earn these four talented artist great notoriety and devoted fans of many diverse musical tastes.

Drummer Dylan McIntosh and bassist Tripp Bains lock into deep, sub-woofing grooves while electric guitarist Curtis Sloane adds tight, rhythm based, melodic progressions and heavily effected looping patterns. Bridging gaps between hip-hop, drum & bass, electronica and funk, Souleye has emerged as one of the most sought-after MC's in the live music and dance club scenes. Together "they create an irresistible booty shaking combination of house, breakbeats and rock...tailor made for the dance floor" the founder of the Joshua Tree Music Festival, Barnett English, raves.

BLVD’s dynamic sound and broad appeal helped spark the fourth album "Music For People". Recorded live at Rodent Records to capture the group’s energy and chemistry, “Music For People” is a genre and mind-bending exploration of electro and hip-hop. Produced by McIntosh and Sloane and mixed at One Union Studio in San Francisco, fans are sure to be blown away by the electronic musical blends with conscious, thought provoking lyrics.

BLVD has become an unstoppable force as they push forward with their musical expansion, pulling you out of your seat and on to the dance floor.
