The Live Show

POSTPONED! tonight's NYC show (according to Eric Sardinas' Official Mailing List)

HOT! 05-26-2002 - santa cruz blues 2002 - aptos village park - aptos, california

Henry Benson, prolific music photojournalist and editor of Central Coast Magazine, has submitted a whopping seventy-seven professional pictures taken at Santa Cruz Blues 2002. You may already be familiar with Henry Benson's work -- specifically, his Eric Sardinas Flash Slideshow from the same festival. His internal gallery starts HERE, and is divided into two sections: Behind the Scenes and The Show. Magnificent!

[I'm running out of superlatives. What can I say about this gallery? Well, I can tell you that after viewing it, I think I may need to have the smile surgically removed from my face.]

Desperately Seeking: vhs to digital-for-the-web conversion (help)

The Band >> press and media >> guitar one - november 2003 - eric sardinas

'Rocksanne' has sent in her low-res scan of Eric Sardinas' brief interview on page 31 of the November 2003 issue of Guitar One. (View the scan HERE.) I am working on acquiring a high-res replacement scan, with interview text that is clearer. [I know we only read G1 for the articles.] Until I do, Rocksanne offers the following gentle recommendation:

"I strongly suggest hauling thy ass to the nearest Walgreens and nabbing a hard copy, to read this bullshit interview and see the hot white outfit."

[LOL! Click the thumbnail to view Rocksanne's scan. ----->]

The Live Show >> sushi tuscadero's live gallery - various - socali

'Sushi Tuscadero' has sent in 28 pictures taken over the last few years at various venues in and around Southern California. (View Sushi's gallery HERE.)

[I'm lovin' these pseudonyms... Rocktober is shaping up to be a funny month!]

The Sounds >> 'first-500-to-buy-Black Pearls autographed poster (see the image)

I got mine Saturday, so if you haven't received yours yet, you're probably not getting one. What makes me think so? My mail carrier is a crackhead. I always get stuff last.

UPDATE! Becky has scanned the November 2003 G1 Eric Sardinas interview and picture... at HIGH resolution. Wanna see? I thought so. Click HERE.

Webmistress >> gone to church

Aerosmith is now in Southern California. EEEEEEEEE!!! Since I'm going to be otherwise occupied (worshipping my personal deities and America's Greatest Rock 'n Roll Band), the next update may take a while. Don't burn the place down while I'm gone... and don't wait up!

The Live Show >> edith w's review: 10-17-2003 - healey's - toronto, ontario

Edith W. just attended her first-ever Sardinas show last night. Click HERE to read her hot-off-the-presses review, "There's Something About a Man and His Guitar." Edith also took time to send in the following article from her local newspaper, the Toronto Star

The Band >> press and media >> toronto star - oct. 16, 2003 - here's bad news:

eric sardinas' new black pearls disc -- a terrifying ride of hard-driving blues

EXCERPT: "Remember the old story about blues icon Robert Johnson selling his soul to the devil so that he could play better? Soon you'll discover who was likely in Satan's entourage on the day the deal was done..." (Click HERE to read the rest of Geoff Chapman's kickass article/review. Click HERE to view the photo included in the print version of the article.)

[Great show review, great newspaper article! Can't wait to see the live pics! I owe you, Edie... Now I gotta go get some sleep, so I don't look scary at church tonight in Devore! PS: Church Thursday night was so inspirational, my knees are still knockin'! EEEEEEE!!!]
