Attention East coast Gametabs members

Hey, everybody. I (Juja) will be joining Random Encounter for part of their East coast tour in the upcoming weeks with BrentalFloss and Danimal Cannon. I'll be filling in for their lead guitar player for 5 confirmed shows and possibly joining them on stage prior to those shows (if we figure out something that works). This will be my first time performing live, so I'm somewhat nervous but excited at the same time. So, if any of you could make it out
to see me live, that would be pretty awesome.

If we record any videos along the way, I'll upload them and link them here.

I'll actually be with them when they play with the Protomen, so I'll be at the show at least, but their lead guitar player will still be around, so I won't be playing that show (unless they want me to come on stage for 1 song or something).

I will definitely be by to the Boston show on the 26th!

And the OneUps are playing, too? Thanks for the heads-up, I would've been furious if I missed this so close to home.

Cool, somebody can actually make it to one of the shows that I'll be playing. Make sure to find me before or after the show, BooDoo. And Random Encounter's other guitarist isn't falling off the face of the Earth, he's just busy for the first week or so that they're going on tour, so he's going to fly out to meet everybody when I fly out (we're swapping places, essentially).

Also, I saw The One Ups perform today and yesterday at Nerdapalooza, and I have to say they're pretty damn amazing live, especially their Castlevania 3 song and their Super Metroid song. Brental Floss is also pretty entertaining live. It seems that he's half comedy and half musical act (as you can gather from his YouTube videos).

Actually, no. From what I am told, the Protomen will be playing in Sarasota that night, and then Random Encounter will be playing with them the following 2 shows. However, The One Ups, Brental Floss, and Danimal Cannon will be with Random Encounter at the Brass Mug show, so it'll definitely be worth checking out.

Bullshit work schedule,

Bullshit work schedule, trying to get out early next Tuesday to be sure and catch your set.

Try knocking shit over on stage and hiding instrument cables to stall your start time, thx.

ON TOPIC: Shitty cameraphone bootlegs of some Random Encounter from tonight's show!

Due to a dumb curfew (for idiots) RE was running through their set at a super hectic pace. Lots of energy and a great way to close out the night.

Windmill Hut Theme(the tail-end of it):

Final Fantasy medley:

The first opener (Bright Primate) are Boston local, and it's rough opening an all-ages show at a dry venue at like 8PM on a Tuesday. I'll definitely give them another chance at a real venue soon.

The One-Ups were on point, even with their stand-in bassist taking Mustin's place. They had a sax player sit in on a couple tunes who was killing it with improv (not being familiar with the themes, I think.)

Danimal was on fire— I didn't know what to expect from him, but his solo guitar work over Gameboy chiptunes he had sequenced was pretty much perfect.

On a less positive note, Brentalfloss might be the worst human being I've ever seen on a microphone in person. He was petty, sexist, narcissistic and NOT FUNNY. If he were struck by lightning, I would not feel very bad.

Oh, and Juja fucked up on Big Blue, so everyone make fun of him for it. (with love)

Thanks a lot for coming out, BooDoo; I really appreciate it. It's nice to know that I've had at least a very slight positive impact by coming on tour with Random Encounter (one more attendee and one copy of self-titled sold).

As for me botching Big Blue a bit. Yes, I did, but there are 2 reasons why it wasn't totally my fault. First of all, the sound set up on stage wasn't very good, so I couldn't hear what I was playing (I could really only hear drums and the accordion screeching at me). And secondly, the bastard drummer was playing every song too fast since we had to rush through our set, and Big Blue is already pretty fast at normal speed, so having it sped up is pretty tough. Also, this is the first time I've played in front of 40+ people, so I was fairly nervous.

It was a really cool night, though. Even though I messed up on Big Blue (the last song), people still called for an encore. That was pretty crazy, because that's the first night that we've been the headliners, and people wanted us to play one more song (which we would have, but we honestly had no time because of the damn curfew). Whereas The One Ups have been the headliners every night, and as amazing as they are, people haven't called for them to do an encore yet on the tour (however, they did get an encore the first night of Nerdapalooza).

Here are a couple of videos from the last show I played with Random Encounter. I hope somebody uploads Big Blue from that show since I did pretty well during the crucial part that I messed up when BooDoo came out to see us. By the way, I'm the guitar player on the left with black hair and the light blue and white guitar.
