‘You Light Me Up’, by Evolfo Doofeht, is a rockin’, quick-phased romp through howling vocals and fetching saxophones. Now, Boston’s own Evolfo Doofeht will be releasing a new single on November 7th, 2013, titled ‘The Mechanicals‘. ‘The Mechanicals’ starts with a commanding horn section that trumps into a melodic groove by Boston’s own Evolfo Doofeht. Cheeky lyrics, lofty, meaningfully and distorted rhymes light up the song ‘The Mechanicals’. The second verse starts after a cordial band tacet, and the breakdown proceeds subsequently into awesomeness. The “nerdy king”, proclaimed by the lyricsist as the crowning chorus invades into infiinity.

Now added to the Massbands.org directory, Evolfo Doofeht, check ’em out!

    Mean Creek – New Album Out


    “Alternative rock” is such an overused term, but Mean Creek have that ever-so-slight country tinge that gives them more of a classic sound, similar to Counting Crows (whom Mean Creek recently toured with), or if you’re even more old-school, Fleetwood Mac.


    The Boston band recently released an album called Youth Companion, their third full-length release, and the songs are more organic and full of life than ever, even after a three-year hiatus from recording.  This may be because Mean Creek has been concentrating on touring and gigging around the Northeast, writing songs along the way that have been influenced by the very energetic atmosphere of the live show circuit.


    That’s not to say that the tracks on Youth Companion are just upbeat alt-rock devoid of meaning.  On the contrary, there’s a lot of emotion here, particularly nostalgia, and the songs take you on a journey from childhood to adulthood via the most bittersweet route.


    Mean Creek have come a long way since their days as a folk duo, nearly a decade ago.  What started out more timid and laid-back soon developed into something more assertive and confident, especially after the addition of a bassist and drummer in 2006.  Since then, the band has gone from strength to strength, playing on stage with some of the biggest names in alternative rock, and following good albums up with even better ones.


    If you want to check out a Mean Creek show, and you definitely should, you can find their gig schedule on their web site, where you can also follow them on social media, or listen to some of their songs on YouTube.  They’ve just uploaded some tracks from the new album, so you can give them a try to see why they have so many fans, both regionally and nationwide.

    Online Presence as a Musician

    Hey there. I’m Jon of the Shred, and this is my first blog post on Massbands.org

    I figured for the first article, I’d give you some helpful tips on promoting yourself online, and how to work on your web presence. Feel free to e-mail me any question or requests for future posts, I plan on doing a monthly music advice column so drop some insight!




    Ah, the coveted online presence of a musician. Arguably, a far more useful tool in this day and age than a record deal, your online presence can MAKE or BREAK the advancement of your career. As a self-employed musician myself (aka unemployed), I will show you some of the tricks I’ve used to build a formidable web presence.

    Facebook + Graphics

    One of the coolest features for Facebook pages is the cover. It gives you the chance to display character and a unique flavor to entice people seeing your page for the first time. If you check out the website I built for my Jon of the Shred and Sweet Funky Freedom pages, you will see the custom design I made to introduce new fans to something different.
    Jon of the Shred
    Sweet Funky Freedom

    Spend a couple hours designing the cover, I mean put some REAL effort into it – the goal is, you want to show your friends, fans, and family some love with a nicely designed cover on Facebook. Don’t have the dough to drop on Photoshop? Easy…get Gimp and Paint.net, two awesome freeware programs for graphic design! Then scour google for Gimp brushes, watch a few Youtube tutorials, and you’ll be making your own album art and designing your own website in no time!

    Soundcloud + Cloud Killers

    Soundcloud is a phenomenal website to host your tracks to showcase to the world. (Did you know there’s a Soundcloud App on Facebook, by the way, to get a playlist tab in your Facebook pages? Look it up!) When I first started using Soundcloud, I loved the ability of putting a slick looking player on the walls of music groups to generate hits on my new, prized track. But the comments just weren’t rolling in….

    Enter Cloud Killers. This site is a great way to both discover new music, find artists to collaborate with through the internet, AND earn points and luck towards YOUR OWN amount of monthly, weekly, and even DAILY comment intake. Check it out, you will not be disappointed! This site helps immensely, just check out the track I updated TWO DAYS ago and have over 300 comments on.

    Societal Decay


    Headliner.fm is a cross-promotional tool aimed at labels and artists. The system is based on “Band Bucks” – the more fans you have, the more you earn when you promote another band. (Fans are calculated from linked Twitter, Myspace, and Facebook accounts.)

    I’ve found TWO crucial ways to get hits on this site:

    1) Offer some free sh!t -Be it a live CD on archive.org, or a set of production tools for hip hop artists and electronic producers, or even a new single for free download…free = more hits! Share your music, and advertise the fact you are giving them a free track! The fans will appreciate that!
    2) Witty, humorous advertising – When I’m advertising for Jon of the Shred, I like to go overboard with hyperbole and sarcasm.

    “The latest Jon of the Shred tracks gave Chuck Norris a concussion, sterilized Justin Beiber and melted the Predators face off.” (Link)

    I don’t know about you, but I’d click THAT link.

    Get YOUR music on Itunes, Spotify and Amazon!

    To get one’s music on I-Tunes, Spotify, and Amazon, they must FIRST face SE7EN TRIALS of UNRELENTING TERROR. First, a journey through the FOREST OF THE IMPALED. Then…..

    Just kidding. All you need to do it sign up with a site like Routenote.com. Your album will go through quality checks for each separate website (Amazon, Itunes, and Spotify) and you can expect to see them in a few months, the latest. Once they’re up, its your job to promote your own product to get the sales!
    (Note: Routenote lets you take 85% of your earnings in exchange for free service. Alternatives cost instant cash.)


    An online presence is essential to a musicians career. Stay hungry, stay driven, continue to strive for your goals and push yourself into new realms of expertise, both in your musical craft, your sound engineering abilities, and your promotional charisma. But most of all, spread YOUR own unique message and signature sound of music – make sure every song you write is your best song by constantly trying to top your last production. You’ll be churning out tracks like “Symphony X – The Odyssey” in no time!

    Where to Put Gig Flyers in Cambridge

    I was going through the archives and came across this document. It should come in handy at some point, though I haven’t made it into town in a bit. Here’s a list of places to put up some gig flyers if your planning on playing the Cambridge area. I linked them to Google maps, sans two of them.

    Saturday, September 22, 2012 – The Fallout Festival w/ Love and Opium, Full-Blooded Mutt, Speak, The Slobbies, 3sk, Ferriz, Krayze Pope, Sheez Late and more

    The Fallout Festival 2012 is just around the corner and this one’s going to be packed -I can just feel it. We got bands, we got rap, we got motor cross…should I go on? We got walls of live graffiti, b-boy battles, skate boarders on quarter pipes, booths of items for sale, food and much more. The Fallout Festival is put on by Art Attack Entertainment. The Fallout Festival is Arty Walch‘s yearly show, for his friends to show of all their artistic and professional contributions -and this show is going to rock! Plus, feel good about a portion of proceeds being donated to the American Diabetes Foundation -you’ll rock AND make a difference too! This year MassBands.org is taking over the main stage, and booking ninety percent of the acts. I just grabbed another web domain to promote the event. Check out my new TLD, FalloutFestival.info [ http://www.FalloutFestival.info/ ] for the latest up to date info and links for the Fallout Festival 2012 in Shrewsbury, MA. Here is who we got going on, on the main stage roaster:

    Two more opening acts (11:45AM-12:30PM, 12:45PM-1:30PM) have just been added, and we’re just going to have an awesome show that day, with lots of different types of music. There will be something for everyone to enjoy! The Fallout Festival 2012 will be held at the SAC Club (Scandanavian Athletic Club), in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, on Saturday, September 22, 2012. The SAC club is located at 438 Lake Street, Shrewsbury, MA 01545-3958.  Again, the show starts at 10:00AM. These two new added acts were hand picked by Arty and were brought in last minute as the show has grown in to what is sure to be the biggest event of the year, hands down. There will be stunts shows: 2:30-3:00 sick and nasty,3:30-4:00 Freestyle force BMX, 4:30-5:00 sick and nasty, 5:30-6:00 freestyle force bmx, 6:30-7:00 sick and nasty, 7:30-8:00 freestyle force BMX. This show is really going to take off this year. I’ve got a feeling about this one.

    Fallout Festival 2

    So again, I hope you all can make it out to the show this year. Tickets are $16 in advance and $20 at the door. Get your tickets in advance at Brown Paper Tickets or Art Attack Entertainment‘s website. I’ve really got an awesome feeling about this year, I think it’s going to be packed with crowds of people this year. That’s alright, this venue can hold ’em. “To infinity and beyond!”, says the life re-animated toy robot!! 🙂

    PS  I just check out Arty’s blog, we’re going to have horses there at the show. Two m*th*rf*ckin’ horses! Holy shiat!

    Saturday, August 25th – Starring, Guardian Alien, Major Stars, and Guerilla Toss at PA’s Lounge

    If your looking for a good time this weekend, check out the Brooklyn, New York based act Starring at PA’s Lounge in Somerville, Massachusetts. Starring is a really awesome “big beat, disco house, psychobilly” act from Brooklyn. Listen to their songs and check out “The Wife of God” on their MySpace page, that’s some awesome stuff! I love how it starts off -intense. This is definitely a band to check out. “Body Double” starts off as a fine instrumental progressive rocking song , and then takes it to the next level with some sweet lyrics in at four minutes into the song.

    After downloading a free sample of their newest album, ABCDEFG-HIJKLMNOP-QRSTUV-WXYZ,which was released June 12, 2012, on Northern Spy records; I have to say I am amazed. This album is a refreshing breath of crisp air; from the smog of many other band’s futile, monotonous attempts at music. This is a really fantastic album! Check out it’s trippy surreal feel, that you just cannot fake! I love it!  Some music has just got it, and this band has it! The album starts off with the song titled “best”, and it as a frantic, harmonious, almost fugue-like composition, with apply timed tempo changes and sporadic angelic vocals. Track number two, “ie”, is just a great song. The breakdown chops in it at 2:18 just rock and scream psychedelia. I hope to hear more from this group in the future.

    The third track on this album is called “———-oooooooooooooo”. It is a mesmerizing waltz with a superb organ intro, rich with drum shakers and guitar twang effects. After a sweet bridge around 3:30, the song then comes back in with such colorful tones. Those have got to be some vintage instruments their using on this album, it’s just got that awesome, full, thick, aged sound. The fourth track is titled “aphonia”. Of course I had to look up the word, and according to Wikipedia, “Aphonia is the inability to speak…Aphonia means ‘no sound’. In other words, a person with this disorder has lost his/her voice.”  “Aphonia”, the song, is a faster paced romp into a disco/psychobilly meld. When the vocals come in, they just scream excellence, and the breaking of barriers -i.e. the inability to speak. There’s also a great solo/free-form section around 2:55. Check it out!

    Track five is called, “…7…”, because sometimes you don’t call track five five; you call it seven! If you’re looking for some awesome music with viola, check this song out. Whenever I think viola, I think the Velvet Underground -one of my most favorite bands. Certainly this band, would give them a run for their money. The viola has just this sweet, scratchy ominous sound. It always has had that haunting effect for me. This song just all out rocks at 3:12 when the whole band comes in! This is definitely an intense album, one I will be listening to over and over. The final song on the album is called “wo”, and it is a dream like sonic landscape. I hope you get a chance to check out Starring and their new album.

    Like I said, if your looking for a show this weekend in Somerville, look no further than Starring. PA’s Lounge is located at 345 Somerville Avenue in Somerville, MA 02143. Their phone number is 617 776 1557. Also performing on the bill will be Guardian Alien, Major Stars and Guerilla Toss. Click here for a Google Map of the location.
