"I feel like I play a lot of instruments, I have to dress appropriately to match them well; to look fancy like the nice instruments. And part of it is I just wanna smash it super super hard, and this is the best way I know how to do it. Come correct! You know and blow my horn and blow my brains out!" » Watch Dr. Blum talk about his style and instruments via Latin Recap. WATCH: http://youtu.be/kjn0oPI2xY4
In celebration of their brand new Tom Morello produced Future Rock EP (available at Amoeba Hollywood) the group Outernational are currently on a two month tour with stops this week in Texas, Arizona, and California where they will play Fulton 55 in Fresno on Thursday (Aug 16), El Callejon in Salinas on Friday (Aug 17), and at The Satellite in Los Angeles on Saturday (Aug 18) along with Las Cafeteras and Los Hollywood - all before traveling up to Canada, down South, and back East for more dates on the current tour that goes through the third week of September.
Along the route of this tour Outernational have been attracting new and old fans of their instantly likable world music flavored revolution rock. This is the second tour in the past few months by the hardworking Brooklyn NY based band. Their earlier 2012 concert trek was a unique two month, 2000 mile, tour along the Mexican border when they played venues not typical for touring rock bands including “the farm fields of California” as part of their Todos Somos Ilegales: We are All Illegal’ tour
In the great video clip below from a Chicago show last week the band reference that unique border town tour. This week’s Outernational concert stops in Texas, California, and Arizona should hold an equally profound meaning as the band’s ever radical music’s call for discriminated people to fight back is a message that has taken on new significance with the announcement over the weekend by Mitt Romney of Paul Ryan as his VP running mate.
Local Marfa/El Paso culture blog, EP Culture Beat showed us some love this week! “NYC rock band Outernational is playing on Sunday, August 12 at Padre’s in Marfa. The group will also play El Paso on Monday at the Palomino Tavern, located on 2601 N. Mesa St. along with local bands.”
Volted Mag interviews Dr. Blum and Miles Solay with some great live footage from the band’s show at Pachanga Fest from May 2012.
“New York City rockers Outernational play “future rock,” a sound they explain in our latest interview. The band also talks about their record Todos Somos Ilegales (We Are All Illegals) and the social injustice that inspired it.”
