John Nolan [27 Jul 2009|10:26am]

I think most of us know that John has a solo project. But if you didn't know, go check www.myspace.com/johnnolanmusic now! He did a few fan collaborations - fans sent him whatever music they had created and John added the lyrics/instruments he felt would go well with them - over the past few months and now they're up for free download at http://johnnolanmusic.bandcamp.com/ My favorite is Not To Let Go. So good!

The even more exciting news is that John's first solo album, Heights, will be released on October 27th, 2009 through Doghouse Records. The album was produced by Mike Sapone. There had been talks about John being on Brookvale Records (the Long Island based, Looney Tunes/Derrick Sherman label) and they previously had a September 1st, 2009 date for the album. That's not happening anymore. Doghouse Records is the label to bands The Honorary Title, Limbeck, Mansions and Say Anything. John played a few shows in June in the Midwest.

His first merch as a solo artist:

You can get it here. Or from John at a show near you.

Now he's on tour with Mansions and in August he goes on a short tour with O'Brother. I had the chance to go and see him play on the 25th at The Space in Hamden, CT. The show was really good, except very short. Camille accompanies him on guitar and keyboard and they're just cute.

Setlist (07.25.09)

New song (I Don't Believe?)
Not To Let Go (with Camille)

one (or two) ticket(s) for sale: chicago, 10/21 [29 Aug 2008|07:01pm]


One (maybe two, if you want both) ticket(s) for the Chicago Anberlin/Straylight Run show on October 21.

I bought these tickets for me and a friend, and then she bailed on me without paying me back, so I really need to sell her ticket. I'm willing to sell my own, too, because I'm not totally sure that I want to go alone to the show.

The tickets were $23.00 each.

Comment or email me if you're interested, sublimmenel@gmail.com

New Song! [11 Aug 2008|11:41pm]

[EDIT - I fixed the link]

Straylight Run are streaming one of the new songs over on AP.net as well as an interview. I ripped the audio for the new song and figured some others may want it to, so here it is...


I'm really liking this song; it's different but I think I'm really enjoying it despite the lack of Michelle.

I figure most of you have probably seen this already, but just in case...

I wanted to let you know that after a lot of thought and discussion with the band, i have decided that i am going to take some time off from Straylight Run to work on a solo record.

It was a difficult decision to make and please know that i have enjoyed all my time in Straylight Run and i loved meeting all of you through the years and hope to continue to see you in the future! John, Will, Shaun and i are all still close friends and we look forward to playing together again some day. Straylight Run is not breaking up. The guys will be continuing on without me and this month they are recording some new songs for you all! In the mean time i will be working on my new project and i will keep you informed as things start to come together. Thank you so much for your support and your understanding.

Love, Michelle

November 19th - first night of the tour [20 Nov 2007|04:11pm]

[ mood | tired ]

I don't know if anyone went last night, but the show at Sokol Underground in Omaha, NE was amazing. The only thing that made me a little sad was that there had to have been less than 50 people at that show.

The first two bands before The Color Fred and Straylight were nice. TCF were awesome, and Straylight put on such an amazing show. John kept messing up on the set list, and would start in with the wrong song. xD

I got a phone call before they started in on a song, and I don't know if John thought I was talking to him or whatever, but he didn't realize I was on the phone. xD It was kind of embarrassing, but funny. After I told my sister [the one who called] where I was, John said, "Oh, she's just telling her she's at the Straylight Run show!" After the show I apologized, and he was like, "Don't worry about it. It happens."

I met all the members after the show. They're always so nice. :] I snagged a set list and they signed it, even Jeff. I gave Will and Shaun the Bow of Awesome, which was just a baby silver xmas bow, and Will said he'd put it on the top of his drums the next show to see how long it'll stay. xD

I always enjoy myself at Straylight Run shows, and last night had to have been the best so far. However, there was this dude who bought the two albums and the EP and made everyone sign the CD and then the booklet, and had Jeff sign it too. He looked like he was in his 40's, and really didn't seem to belong. He didn't know any of the band member's names, which I guess doesn't mean much. I had the suspicion that he was going to sell the albums on eBay, but I don't know... xD xD He probably has a son or daughter or something that couldn't make it. xD

But enough of my ramblings. xD I didn't take any pictures, besides of one with me and John, because I really don't like doing that in the Underground. I did take pictures of when I saw them in April at The Rock. You can see them here.

set listCollapse )

I also spoke briefly with Michelle about her songs. I was really excited to hear some of hers, but she told me that the audience didn't seem so thrilled. :[
