A collection of memories from WE ARE ANIMALS featuring Pasty Cline, Witch Kings, Tiger Fawn, Pathos, Pathos, and Stuyedeyed. All shots taken by my best buddy, Joel Cameron. I’d like to send a huge thanks to everyone who came out, all the bands that played, and the best friends that helped manage the madness. We’ll have to do this again sometime soon. Enjoy.
Recently, photographer Christopher Garcia and I paid Orlando indie rock quartet Pathos, Pathos a visit while they were practicing for their EP release show. He brought his camera, and I sat in the corner and watched. Work hard. Play hard. Here are photographs from that session, along with my thoughts on Pathos, Pathos’ debut EP, Familiar Homes. Enjoy.
Pathos, Pathos at WE ARE ANIMALS (our first show) featuring fellow Orlando acts Pasty Cline, Witch Kings, and Tiger Fawn, and Brooklyn psych rock outfit, Stuyedeyed.
“Darling I’ve been seeing a reflection of myself in your eyes.
Oh paint me all the colors of the sky.
Blues and greens fill up my insides.”
The sounds on Familiar Homes are like a bite of out a sweet, crisp apple on a beautiful day. Matthew Walsh’s sugary vocal melodies ring throughout these songs, weaving in and out of the light-as-air guitar lines. Simply put, these songs are pleasing to my ears.
So there’s sweet, let’s move on to crisp. All of the instrumentation on Familiar Homes, like the guitar lines I mentioned, sounds phenomenal. As a live band, Pathos, Pathos has chops. I’m glad that talent shines through on the recordings. On songs like “Tiger” and “Speak In Tongues,” each instrument is clear and pops in its own way.
FAV TRACKS: “Tiger,” “Show Me Love,” “Blues and Greens”
If you’ve been boycotting us over the last few weeks, or just never liked us to begin with, then WE ARE ANIMALS probably means nothing to you. And that’s fine. I’m not really a fan of this site’s output either. But, WE ARE ANIMALS is our first show (3/21 @ The Space), featuring Witch Kings, Tiger Fawn, Pasty Cline, Pathos, Pathos and – just added – Brooklyn psychedelic savants, Stuyedeyed. If you’d like to become a more informed consumer, read more into WE ARE ANIMALS and RSVP. Enjoy.
It’s a great surprise to have Stuyedeyed on board with this show. They’re coming into Orlando a little sooner than they expected – they have another show on 3/22 – and were looking for a place to play. So, take a minute and melt into the lava-esque sounds flowing through their debut album Birth, and come see them close out The Space. I say the more the merrier. What do you think?
The Vinyl Warhol presents WE ARE ANIMALS, a night of music starring Orlando wildlife: Pasty Cline, Pathos, Pathos, Tiger Fawn and Witch Kings. As the inhabitants of this concrete jungle, we want to celebrate Orlando’s growing art community while helping preserve a different kind of ecosystem. Partial proceeds from this event will go to Fallin’ Pines Critter Rescue, a local non-profit that rescues, rehabilitates, and finds homes for unwanted exotic and farm animals. They do very important work, and TVW is proud to support such a vital organization.
The night of, The Space will be decked out in jungle decor; face painters will Ani-morph party-goers; and our very own Karina Curto will be capturing the night in a wildlife photo shoot. Doors for this event are at 9:30 p.m., with music starting at 10:00 p.m. RSVP now!
Band previews and set times can be found beneath the show poster, made by the supremely talented Josiah Wess. If you dig the poseter as much as I do, you can scoop a copy the night of the show.
I really can’t believe this is happening. I never thought we’d be putting on a show. Thanks guys. Enjoy.
