The Great Book of John is on the road again! They made it to Brooklyn last night for a great show at Roots Cafe. Greeted with the southern hospitality of Alabama native owner, Jamey Hamm, it was a warm welcome back to the Big Apple.
Today they started the mid-tour adventure of working in studio with legendary Paul Logus (Notorious B.I.G., Tina Turner, and oh-so-many-more).
It’s sure to be an epic two days.
They are set to Play Rockwood Music Hall (4/24/12, 11:45pm, Stage 2) and then continue down the East Coast towards home.
Check out their upcoming dates to catch a live show near you.
The Great Book of John are on the road.
A last-minute show in Nashville went splendidly. There were even some celebrities in attendance.
Tonight is Pittsburgh — 222 Ormsby. Come say hi.
Tomorrow the band will play 2 shows: One at Jack’s Music Shoppe in Red Banks, NJ. We play at 2:00. The guys from that show, Comic Book Men, will be there, too… Apparently Kevin Smith owns the building and Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash is across the st.
Our other NYC show will be on Tuesday the 24th at Rockwood Music Hall. It’s free. Come out. Bring a friend. Spread the word.

By their very nature, compilation albums are very much a mixed bag. I have been privy to a fair selection in my time and more often than not the contents are pretty bleak. So it was with trepidation that I settled into this virginal sampler from Birmingham Alabama based indie label Communicating Vessels’ This trepidation was off-set slightly by the fact the label was the final home of Remy Zero (former member Jeffrey Cain actually started the label following his bands dissolution back in 2010), in my mind one of the most underrated indie bands of the last 2 decades. I had no need to worry, this is perhaps the strongest selection of songs I’ve heard in a while and each seems to embody the labels cheerfully bleak aesthetic.
