Videos! Videos! 700 Videos!

Oh, hi! Nice to see you. It’s been a while since I’ve updated you on Daykamp Music TV. If I ever want to show my face around town again, I better use my imagination and come up with some way to tell you more about the state of our video channel. Sooo, here goes.

Look, we all get a little bit low from time to time. Sometimes we’re so low down we don’t even wanna to go to school or work. The fear is that it will send us to our graves. There’s hope! Music is our medicine! With more than 700 videos from 300 artists, Daykamp Music TV will have you ridin’ out this sweater weather until we’re all living in harmony.

OK. That’s all I’ve got for this morning. Enjoy a music video or two! Here’s today’s Video of the Day. It’s a classic from The Juliana Hatfield Three. They play The Sinclair Friday night!


Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling @ Davis Square Theatre 12.6.2013

The Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling Big Band Revue* took to the Davis Square Theatre stage for some Jingle Ball Rock. The world’s only drum, bass, trombcussion and fluboe quartet might not be festive, but they are compelling.**

* At least I think that’s what they’re called these days. I may be making that up. Yes, I’m most definitely making that up.

** Probably the world’s only. I sorta made this one up, too, but it may actually be true.

Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling – By Hook Or By Crook (2013)

DNFMOMD - By Hook Or By Crook
Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling
By Hook Or By Crook

Boston’s favorite “The Prisoner”-inspired musical act is getting feisty. Not content to wail and fuzz with bass and drums, Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling wail and fuzz with bass, drums, keys, oboe and viola on By Hook Or By Crook. “Episode 10 – Living in Harmony” may be my new favorite DNFMOMD song. The vocals are simultaneously desperate and matter-of-fact. The augmented instrumentation adds to the emotional pull. Oh, the video ain’t too shabby, either. “Episode 15 – The Girl Who Was Death” will be instantly recognizable to those who have seen one of the band’s recent performances. The refrain of “You have just been poisoned” is effective in its directness and repetition. This is music design to make in impact. It does.

Where to get it:

Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling @ T.T. The Bear’s Place 11.15.2013

Crazy. Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling just released two songs, with videos(!!!), on the same night night. That’s not the crazy part.* The crazy part is that they added a few folks to the DNFMOMD fold for the occasion. Matt Graber, Rachel Blumenthal and Susannah Plaster all pitched in on various instruments for a memorable set. What’s so crazy about that, you ask? One look into Sophia’s eyes and you’ll understand…

*For most people releasing two videos on the same night would be called crazy. For Sophia and Michael, it’s called Friday.

Announcing The Daykamp Poster & Photo Shows!


We’re putting on a a couple of shows with rock bands, photos and posters at TT’s in October! It’s going to be more awesome than we can put into words. That’s why we had Richard Bouchard do it for us! Here’s a special guest post from the Indie Rock Ranger with the details…

When I was first hired to do booking at TT the Bear’s Place, one of the first things I wanted to do was set up a show with Nicole and Johnny Anguish of Daykamp Creative and Daykamp Music, respectively. I’ve been hiring Nicole to create show posters since back in the Boston Band Crush days, usually giving her no guidance other than the list of bands and the date of the show. She always delivers an incredibly eye-catching, colorful design that doesn’t just provide information; it’s something I want to hang on my wall forever. Then there’s Johnny, always front and center for a rock show before posting amazing photo recaps on his Daykamp Music website. They tirelessly support the music community here, and knowing that I wasn’t the only one to feel that way, I felt that it was high time they present a show. Not just any show, mind you, I wanted them to pick the bands – artists they’ve worked with over the years and bands they’re longtime fans of – but I also wanted to display their work in the club for everyone to see. After some brief discussion, Nicole emailed me back: “We’re thinking we need to do two nights…”
Here’s what they came up with:

Thursday 10/10
(Tickets | Facebook Event)

Friday 10/18
(Tickets | Facebook Event)

Two night pass:

Posters and photos from the Daykamp empire will be on display for the entire week between shows.
