Posted in music, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 18, 2013 by finerstacy

Ohio, what can I say.  I love every person that  I met!   Thank you Buzzbin and thank you The Patio Tavern.  We met great artists and hung with quality folks.  Now we are back in Indianapolis with friends and family gearing up for Thursday night at Birdy’s with Gallo, our touring friends! What a great opportunity to help build their audience by bringing out our music loving hoosiers as well as for us opening up for a killer group!


The revolution will be anywhere…

I feel like life is going to be different…yes just a little live streaming video and you are connecting with people instantly. Don’t get me wrong, I love playing in a live venue.  But we just did our first blogtv post and  it  reminded me of why I play music.  I play to feel good and to make others feel good.  How is cool is it that I get to be so close to Ethan while he’s playing a wicked solo and the energy is getting transferred online to anyone who is listening? Very!  Thanks to Noel and Manny for helping out with the technical difficulties.  It’s better when you actually hear the music.:)

In the studio!

A new year and a new EP !  We are joyously working on our new recording.  The infamous “Whoa Whoa”  is going to make it on to this recording.  We know you’ll love it.   We performed it for the first time  right before the new year and it will be aired on Indiana public radio in February.   Once again Kiel Whitted is a huge help.   He’s engineering the record freeing up me and Ethan  to wear our producer’s cap.   Keep an eye out for pictures and posts on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr.

Finer loves Harry Potter and the Melody Inn

Posted in harry potter, hip hop, music on November 22, 2010 by finerstacy

Well, maybe it was not smart to see Harry Potter at the 12:01am opener and follow it up with an early morning band practice, but I love HP and we can’t wait to the hit the stage at the Melody Inn on Dec. 1st. Brad Real and Big Tid, Indy’s best underground hip hop artist go on right before us and we finish the night with the always pleasing dance rock band Montauk Monster. I plan on seeing HP again this weekend with my niece in NY, but will be back for the Melody and a surprise show annocement for the following weekend. Have a Happy Thanksgiving with your friends and family and watch your back as he who must not be named is still out there.

Fun and Easy

Ah! We’ve been cranking away at the new music and posting youtube videos care of Ethan’s excellent editing work, but we are most excited about the next stage of the battle. We’ve met so many great bands along the away and  have now had a chance to connect with so many more fans that we don’t want it to end.  So be at Birdy’s on the 29th of October at 8pm and see us get to the final round.

An autograph is very valuable

First off, FINER made it the next round of the battle of birdy’s!  We had a great night, met new people and as I was swing my guitar over my head in the air  I almost hit Ethan in the face.  He matrix styled his way out of it.  Thank you Mr. Reeves!   So thanks to those who came out and we hope to see more of you in October.  Also we’ll be at the Melody Inn next week on the 25th and we have a great night of music before we hit the stage.  Glass Halo and The Post Script are two rocking Indianapolis bands who always light it up.  Josh Eagle and Harvest City out of Ohio and Purgatory Hill  will start off the night.  Purgatory hill is getting press on The Onion’s website. Very cool!

Okay, enough promotion… I have had a crazy few weeks.  Every once and awhile I leave my lair of songwriting to head out into the real world.   Well, I was on the plane coming back from NY and I  was lucky enough to sit next to Sandeep from the web sensation The Guild.  Check out   So first off he was very smart and super cool.  Second, this show is so funny, I almost died laughing.   The premise is about a bunch of online gamers of a World of War craft style game who meet in real life and drama and fun ensues.   I lived in LA where everyone is an actor and I hung out with a dungeons and dragons improv group so this show hits very close to home.   Everyone is quirky and hysterical and your neighbor is the stunt guy for every random kung fu movie on the back shelves of Blockbuster.    So, I got invited to meet the cast at Gen-Con.  AWESOME!  I could not believe how many people where there and how many new games were being developed and how many guys look good dressed as the Riddler.   The Guild had a huge line and I got to cut the line…not cool I know, but I was running to help a friend with a video shoot in Muncie so I had an excuse.  The show was created and stars Felicia Day from Dr. Horrible’s sing-along who is way too hot and way too talented.  The cast was so friendly.  Now, when I meet famous people, I get very amped up and excited so I was running my mouth and talking to everyone around me.  I offered to take pictures for several fans waiting in line…their loss as I could hardly keep my hand straight.  And offered several antidotes to those who were deciding what to buy.  “Oh, get the one that matches  your desktop.”  Or “Everyone needs three copies of season 1 on DVD!”   I was down with the cause… and why shouldn’t I be.  The show is funny and I got everyone’s autograph.   I now have a personal connection and will tell everyone about the show.   I also got Keith Richards autograph when I was a teenager and look how that has helped the Rolling Stones!  🙂

Be at the Melody Inn Wednesday August 25th. We go on late around 11:30 or 12 but the whole night will be Incredible!
