hello, friends. two-thirds of bermuda triangle service is just back from the catskill mountains where we spotted miniature frogs, watched a rabble of monarch butterflies, and had an odd standoff with a jackrabbit who refused to eat homegrown carrots. now that we have returned to pigeon terra, we look forward to a couple of local musical outings this weekend. show details are here.

aloha, all. bermuda triangle service heads east to play the fine city of new york. first up, pete's candy store. now, it might sound like pete's candy store is, well, just that. but mostly, it is a purveyor of fine music and adult spelling bees. bermuda triangle service performs on sunday, 11/5, at 9:30pm. we're hoping to catch a spelling bee on monday as well. after that, there is a show manhattan way with our friend, mr. dred scott, on 11/7 in the lower east side at rockwood music hall. come on out! we'll throw you roses or hibiscus.

holy cryptic notebooks, hobo sidewalk sales, and thumbs pointed toward vancouver or victoria or anything north of the northern border of bush country. yes, bermuda triangle service is working on those notebooks in hopes of another studio release sometime in the not-too-distant future. in the meantime, enjoy these lovely pictures that amy honey took of our bands, our beasts, and the general mayhem that the saloonatics (amy honey, lily fawn, carolyn mark) caused while touring the western coast. you might also want to stop by amy's record store, red cat records, if you're ever in the vancouver area. it's 'not just music for pussies.'

title track to high swan dive:

there's a glass in her hand
so she slowly puts it down
brushes the crumbs off of her lap
and then takes a look around

the lawn chairs are empty
the chips are gone
the ice has all melted
the water is calm

she follows the concrete
around the shape of a bean
and climbs up the ladder
until she sees everything

the roofs of the houses
linoleum floors
the cul-de-sac ending
her neighbor's front doors

she's still and she's flying
with the june bugs beside her
she's still and she's flying
with the june bugs to guide her

her party is over
her friends have all gone
the dachshund is sleeping
the streetlights come on

she calls to esther to make it be good
and steps up confidently just like esther would
then breathing loud and heading down to the deep, deep blue green
she jumps high with all her might
a swan dive in mid-flight

she's still and she's flying
with the june bugs beside her
she's still and she's flying
with the june bugs to guide her

19 may 2005

we'd never heard of an albino redwood 'til fernwood said they had one. we shall be dedicating songs to the albino redwood tree when we play the fernwood on saturday, may 28th. it makes us both happy and sad to report that fernwood is completely booked up for the night, but we know of one person who drove his car all the way from oakland to big sur and back to see will oldham play there. it can be done! if you watch the curves! otherwise, catch us at the 9th annual mission creek music festival. show details are here.

21 february 2005

the plum blossoms are falling, perhaps signifying the true change of the seasons. bermuda triangle service can only hope, as we drive ourselves around this weekend, that the rains shall let up and that we shall successfully deliver ourselves and our gear to our committed destinations. up first is an evening at luna's on saturday. sacramento music critic, jackson griffith, told us that we really needed to play his town and suggested a double bill with david houston. we look forward to hearing david's set as he is a man that is not adverse to the use of a string section or wearing sunglasses at night. david has recently been getting press because jack white of the white stripes is a fan of his songwriting and has covered his songs live. fellow san franciscan, matt bauer, shall open. weekend show details are here.
