What are y’all up to, anyways?

In case you were wondering, hey, what’s Venice is Sinking doing these days, well, then here is an update, okay, sheesh?!

Mrs. Marie Davon is in a rad group called Powerkompany with her musical/life partner Andrew, who is way hotter than Vincent Gallo. You should go check them out and their albums, which are great: http://www.powerkompany.com/

Meanwhile, Lucas has a few things in the fire, most notably Croup Vandemar, a project he just launched with BC Fortenberry, who you may remember as “Bassist” from the final “SXSW Tour.” Check out their first song here: http://croupvandemar.bandcamp.com/

It’s called “Curses”, and Erin Lovett of Four Eyes sang on it. Lucas played drums in Four Eyes for a while, and they recorded an album with BC called “Our Insides”: http://foureyesathens.bandcamp.com/album/our-insides

Daniel just moved, but is heading to great things in the world of landscape architecture. :( James is working at UGA, stage managing the concert hall! Jeremy lives and works in Seattle with his adorable child and wife (that “adorable” applies to both, even though Anna probably doesn’t want to be called “adorable,” deal with it, okay?! Sheesh!). Steve is…in Canada? Steve, we miss you! Alex is roaming the earth, as per usual.

No Venice is Sinking music planned for the foreseeable future, but you can hear bits of our “signature sounds”™ in these tracks. Enjoy.

Megafaun + Venice is Sinking — 40 Watt — Athens, GA — Friday, November 18!

Hello, VISers! It is our great pleasure to be playing a show this weekend with the stellar Durham, NC band, Megafaun. They really are one of the best things going, a band that does a marvelous of riding the line between the familiar and the unique. They can be folky, experimental, noisy, pastoral, boisterous, pastoral, psychedelic, and more, often within the same song. You really should not miss this show.
