Goodnight, not goodbye

I’ve been performing live music in the Twin Cities for close to 16 years now; over half of my life. The first time performing, I played drums in my band Paradigm, in “The Lounge” at “The Garage” in Burnsville. I like to tell people we did all Bad Religion covers, but that’s only half the truth. There was some Good Charlotte and Sum 41 in there as well. That first show sparked a fire inside me that has continued to grow, and burns brighter with each song, each gig, each band, and each year.

Reflecting on that, I find myself getting emotional, because I realize that the vast majority of the wonderful friendships I now have, are due to my decision to play, listen, and watch shows. I can’t stress this point enough. Almost every person I am close to and love, I have met through music in one way or another.

If it wasn’t for music, I never would have met Allen, Matthew, or Aaron. I’ve spent five wonderful years playing with Matthew, and 11 years with Allen. These guys are my brothers for life. They have contributed an exorbitant amount of time, energy, and creativity to this band. Their individual talents as musicians, along with our camaraderie, has been one of the highlights of my life to watch and take part in.

Performing Live

I have made a personal decision to take a step back from American Scarecrows. I wish I had the opportunity to give our wonderful fans more forewarning, since these next few shows (Friday, April 1st at The Turf Club, and Saturday, April 2nd at The Icon Lounge in Sioux Falls, SD) will be our last…at least, for some time. But, like I said, it’s goodnight, not goodbye.

Lyrics of “Goodnight, not goodbye”.

Say goodnight, not goodbye
You will never leave my heart behind
Like the path, of a star
I’ll be anywhere you are

In the sparke that lies beneath the coals
In the secret place inside your soul
Keep my life, in your eyes
Say goodnight , not goodbye

Don’t you fear, when you dream
Waking up is never what it seem
Like a jewel buried deep
Like a promise meant to keep

Say goodnight, not goodbye
You will never leave my heart behind
Like the path, of a star
I’ll be anywhere you are

In the sparke that lies beneath the coals
In the secret place inside your soul
Keep my life, in your eyes
Say goodnight , not goodbye

Don’t you fear, when you dream
Waking up is never what it seem
Like a jewel buried deep
Like a promise meant to keep

You are everything you ought to be
So just let your heart reach out to me
Keep my life, in your eyes
Say goodnight, not goodbye
Say goodnight, not goodbye

Our band has had the pleasure of making two records. We are so proud of that. We have also shared the stage with many killer bands and artists.

I want to thank every person that has ever come to a show, bought a record, or come up and talked with us. You have played a defining role in why we do this, and for that we will always be grateful to you.

Performing Live2

Keep listening to records, keep going to shows, and keep being excellent to each other.
Big Love,
Seth…

Lenny Kravitz Accidentally Flashes Swedish Crowd

Sascha Baumann, 

Being a good performer requires FULL COMMITMENT: In order to captivate the audience, you can’t hold anything back. Lenny Kravitz clearly knows this, as he regularly dazzles concertgoers with his guitar playing/guitar faces. He probably also knows that sometimes, when you bare your soul on stage to a sea of strangers, you almost feel naked. And last night (August 3) in Stockholm, he actually was naked. In the crotch area.

The “Fly Away” singer was playing to a crowd of thousands at a Stockholm theme park called Gröna Lund when, in a fit of true rock frenzy, Kravitz crouched down for an intense guitar solo. That’s when the unthinkable happened: The seams of his leather trousers split to reveal literally all of his business. It’s almost as if he was pointing at the front row. Guess they’re glad they got there early?

Lenny Kravitz

According to The Local, Lenny briefly left the stage and reappeared in a pair of functioning pants — but by then, the stray appendage had been captured on camera phones and posted to social media. One eyewitness told a Swedish tabloid (via The Local), “It was insane, I killed myself laughing. And then I called my mum who was there at the show as well. Her reaction was the same and she almost killed herself laughing too.”

Sadly, our company’s standards policy prevents us from sharing stray dong imagery, but if you’d like a gander (NSFW! Dong ahoy! There’s a monster at the end of this book!), one can be had here. Also, here.

In his defense, underwear is less than practical when you’re wearing semi-breathable animal skins! Our hearts and thoughts are with Lenny’s daughter Zoe Kravitz at this difficult but also hilarious time.

Lenny Kravitz Performing

The “Take off” vocalist was playing to a horde of thousands at a Stockholm amusement stop called Gröna Lund when, in an attack of genuine shake free for all, Kravitz hunkered down for a serious guitar solo. That is the point at which the unbelievable happened: The creases of his cowhide pants split to uncover actually the greater part of his business. It’s near as though he was pointing at the front column. Figure they’re happy they arrived early?

As per The Local, Lenny quickly left the stage and returned in some working jeans — however by at that point, the stray limb had been caught on camera telephones and presented via web-based networking media. One observer told a Swedish newspaper (through The Local), “It was crazy, I slaughtered myself giggling. And after that, I called my mum who was there at the show also. Her response was simply the same and she nearly murdered giggling as well.”

Tragically, our organization’s gauges approach keeps us from sharing stray dong symbolism, however in the event that you’d like a gander (NSFW! Dong Ahoy! There’s a beast toward the finish of this book!), one can be had here. Likewise, here.

With all due respect, clothing is not as much as down to earth when you’re wearing semi-breathable creature skins! Our hearts and considerations are with Lenny’s little girl Zoe Kravitz at this troublesome yet, in addition, clever time.…
