The Get Help Series Finale

We know your New Year’s resolution is to attend every Get Help show in 2012. It’s ours, too. So we’re going to make it very easy for everyone: there will be only one Get Help show in 2012. Yes, as of the close of show January 6, Get Help will be taking a break from our obligations as rock’s only living supergroup of unknown musicians. It has been a magnificent five and a half years being Get Help, and at some point, or points, in the future, we hope we can reform and resume our land-grabbing ways, even if just for a little while. Maybe we’ll even blog a little. But for now, we’re entreating you to join us for one last hurrah:

Friday, January 6, 9pm
Trash Bar
256 Grand Street
Brooklyn, NY

We’re sure we’ve thought of everything, left nothing to chance, and after all, what could possibly go wrong? Thanks for all your support.

Song: A remix of “The […]

There were a few monumental events in my life lo this past year, and they include but are not limited to (in chronological order): my running the New York City Marathon, my presence at a “classic lineup” reunion show of Guided by Voices in New York City, my wife and I having a baby boy, and my attendance at the first Archers of Loaf reunion show in Brooklyn. The first two happened on the same day. The latter two, thankfully, did not. I hasten to add that obviously these events were not equal in significance. In each, however, I […]

Some Press

Mike and I did some interviews recently. They were fun to do, and I think they are fun to read as well.

The first is an article by Jen Kelly that appeared in Popmatters.

The second is an interview I did with Brendan Carroll for the Jersey Journal, a local paper.


Get Help on Youtube #1: The Dark Knight

Since Tony and I got ourselves into this licensing game, we’ve discovered that a number of our clips get selected by Youtube posters. To make this blog a little more semi-regular, we’re posting some of the vids that feature Get Help songs.

Let’s kick it off with a clip that was sent to us by Dan Howard. Dan was kind enough to hunt Get Help down after finding this photo montage of Heath Ledger on the set of ‘The Dark Knight’.
