Red Paint CD release party
Submitted By Steve Schaefer
Alameda, California-based Red Paint is releasing their first CD, "American Tender." The official CD release party takes place on Saturday, January 21 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at High Street Station in Alameda. At the event, the group will play through the new CD, in order, and in a second set debut some fresh, original material slated for the second CD, along with a few favorite covers.
See the High Street Station website at http://www.highstreetstationcafe.com for event information and directions. Contact the band directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the Evite invitation list. Space at High Street Station is limited, so if you want to go, sign up now.
Red Paint was formed in October 2006. Members include Colin Close (lead vocal, rhythm guitar), Shaun Reid (lead guitar), Steve Schaefer (bass), and Tony Herrin (drums). The band plays about half original material and half carefully selected covers. The vast majority of the original songs are composed by Colin.
Musical influences include Little Feat, the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, and the Who, among others. The band's sound mixes rock with a little country, a little blues, and a surprise hint of punk, blended into a satisfying taste of Americana.
See Red Paint's Facebook Page (www.facebook.com/redpaintmusic) for information and some studio-recorded musical samples. Copies of the new 11-song CD will be available at the event at a special event-only price of just $5.
