Snowflakes Podcast Available On iTunes

Maybe it’s no big deal to the experienced podcasters, but we’re tickled silly that iTunes carries our podcast:

Snowflakes Podcast on iTunes

It’s just a pretty cool world that lets us share what’s up via iTunes’ really big umbrella. No money changes hands. They incorporate the RSS info into their podcast store but don’t host the media. That stays of our server. It’s a win-win. It’s easy to subscribe from the iTunes store.

I (Martin here) was slow to learn how to enjoy podcasts. Once I finally forced myself to study my iTunes for 5 minutes, I got tons of pleasure from podcasts that I’ve now followed for a couple of years. One of them is nearing its 200th episode. And the shows I listen to are never never never going to be on a mainstream outlet.

Did I dream that I’d be a podcaster? Or that Snowflakes would podcast? Never once until we attended the Los Angeles Podcast Festival recently. Now that the RSS thingy is worked out I believe our next Snowflakes episode will automatically appear on iTunes. Time to check the microphones…

 

An Intimate Night With Snowflakes – Nov 16, 2013

We’ll be playing Venice, CA’s The Love Dome on Nov 16.

“Doors open at 9:00pm, music starts promptly at 10:00pm. Immerse yourself in hours of acoustic tunes with Snowflakes. Cash donation bar, no outside beverages please. Artist Q&A after the show. Only 40 tickets available. Pre-sale only.”

We are so looking forward to this. It seems almost like a house concert, which we’ve yet to play. There’s an hour of music, an hour of mingling and then another, shorter set. It sounds like a perfectly lovely evening to us. All the details are on our gig calender Tickets are being sold through EventBrite. The Love Dome is a westside institution.

 

Playing on October 13

We love the Phoster app for making gig posters. And we love playing electric shows with Tom Gonzalez on drums. Rock you soon!

Set List for Short Set

Set List for Short Set

UPDATE: We didn’t take a single picture last night. How did that happen? It was a fun vibe opening for Eagles tribute group Best Of My Love. We played as a duo because our drummer Tom was too sick to make it out. Usually we go acoustic when it’s just the two of us. But the electric guitar and amp were all rigged up. When the the music starts up, we always have fun with it. There was some creative echo that magically appeared on the vocal. Funny how the echos seemed at least as loud as the original. Funny as in, well, nevermind… It actually was fun making spooky Halloween sounds with it.

Trailer Release Party – Mental Health Awareness

Snowflakes is proud to contribute a performance tonight for a film, The Forgotten Heartbeat, promoting mental health awareness. Pics to follow. Mini red carpet. Great cause.

Edit: The event was lovely. Amanda’s trailer is compelling. Her movie deserves to be made. The mysteries of electronics made the PA unavailable. So we just played acoustically. The electric bass worked because we just plugged the amp into an outlet.  We were really touched by how carefully people listened. The Medusa in Silverlake was the locale.

We love a Friday night tiki party. We love the movie Freaky Friday. Enter the Freaky Tiki Beach Party. The venue is Raw Star Cafe in Santa Monica. We’ll be alternating sets with Bliss Factory which we’re jamming in too. Lots of playing time and healthy food. Pics will be taken

Sunday Celebration Hosted By Jonathan Zadok

Jonathan Zadok hosts some really great comedy and songwriter nights around Los Angeles. Snowflakes is always delighted to jam at his soirées. Max Holly showed up to cheer on the night. Tom Bishell appeared out of the blue and snapped neat photos. He’s a pro and it shows! The sound was great onstage and we had a thoroughly wonderful rock out sesh. Photos by Tom Bishell.
