Choice/Cuts: Norwegian Arms - “Easy a Lover Goes West”

We’re back with the second installment of our Choice/Cut session with Norwegian Arms. In this footage, you get an exclusive listen of their yet-to-be-released song “Easy a Lover Goes West” (which will appear on their upcoming album Wolf Like A Stray Dog). We don’t think that you’ll be able find it anywhere on the interweb. Well, in the age of iPhones and smartphones, there might be a poorly recorded version out there somewhere. But why would you want to suffer through that? And we surely don’t want you to either. Get down to some island vibes, and check out our interview with “Keith Birthday” and “Dr. Awkward” where they get a chance to discuss their love for “vintage” gear. Special thanks to the HotBox crew. Enjoy!

Norwegian Arms & Laser Background Kick Off Philly House Show Residency at Dreamcastle Sept. 14

Come get weird tonight with Norwegian Arms and Laser Background at Dreamcastle in South Philly as they begin their Philly house show residency experiment. The guys sent us an email at the end of August announcing their plans to tour our city’s various house venues from mid-September to mid-October. The message also included a set of rules that the members of each band must adhere to during the tour (including living at each house for at least two days). You can check out the note with the complete list of rules and tour dates HERE.

Norwegian Arms posted this status on their Facebook the other night which perfectly sums up our feelings of why their house show tour is important for the city’s underground music scene and why you should go out and support the artists and houses involved. “I think the best thing about this House show residency is that not only does it allow me to play in four hardworking house venues in this city, but it also raises people's awareness of spaces like there, where people allow folks to enter into their homes and share in a common cultural experience. We've also chosen them because they reflect different neighborhoods.” They’ll also be joined this evening by buddies The Circadian Rhythms and Jon Pfeffer (from Capillary Action). Dreamcastle, (Please contact one of the acts or the venue for more deets.), 8pm, $1 - $5 (sliding scale), All Ages, BYO-fun things - Dan Brightcliffe

Norwegian Arms & Laser Background Get Creative w/a Philly House Show Residency Tour in Sept. & Oct.

Below is a message from our wacky pals at Norwegian Arms & Laser Background. The two outfits have joined forces for a Philly House Show Residency Tour in September & October. However, it is not your normal run of shows as you will see from the deets below.

 
Hello fellow earthling.  To celebrate what may perhaps be our last year on this planet, we here at Laser Background & Norwegian Arms have created a project of unlikely proportions, pushing the boundaries of all parties involved to new heights of creativity.  For one month, from mid September - mid October, our two bands will perform once a week in different neighborhood house show spots within our fair city of Philadelphia.  Also featured will be local &/or touring bands that we think are great.  We will also adhere to a strict policy of rules for this project, which include actually living inside the houses we play in...
 
Rules:
1 - We must actually "reside" in said houses for two days prior to / including the show, creating a sort of couch-fort / tent type dwelling in a living room or other common area.  We may leave for work or other daily obligations, but absolutely must sleep there.
2 - During this time, we must adhere to a strict food / drug regimen for at least one of the two days.
3 - In & around our altered food / mind / couch fort states, we must write as much material as we can possibly be compelled to create.
4 - We must perform at least one song that we wrote during this period at the respective house that we have dwelled in.
5 - At the end of the entire project, a compilation of pertinent material & documentation of the process will be gathered for future release to the public.
 
Schedule:
* Friday September 14th @ Dreamcastle in South Philly w/ Circadian Rhythms
* Friday September 21st @ Double Deuce in North Philly w/ TBA
* Friday September 28th @ Pilam in West Philly w/ DRGN KING & Ladies Auxiliary
* Friday October 5th @ The OX in Kensington w/ Thin Hymns & Son Step
 
All of these shows are all ages, open to the public, BYO fun-things & optional suggested donation $1 - $5 sliding scale.  Please spread the word & tell your friends!  We want this to be as fun for everyone as it will be for Andy & Brendan.  Expect a lot of weird videos, recordings, drawings, etc. as these dates approach.  We are psyched!
 
Sincerely,
Norwegian Arms & Laser Background
