Too Much Fun for Arlington

Westover marketIs Arlington too much fun !? Well, that's what some people seem to think. You know Starryville, your favorite band, we play so loud rock'n'roll that we got into trouble while playing at Westover Market last August. I think that's because of the little kids that were dancing in front of us were having too much fun. How decadent !

Sounds from the Cave

Very Private Party Jan 2011All right, you might wonder why the Starryville web site has been so silent this past month: are these people not playing music anymore? Did they leave the country for some warmer latitudes? Did they win the DC lottery so they don't have to play stupid music anymore in bars late at night just to make enough money to pay for the beer tab? Nahnahnah, all wrong! Simply, we have decided a retreat in our preferred practice cave in order to get ready for our next gig which we plan to record on tape. We know, our next gig is a private event, and not all of our numerous fans will be able to attend. But at least if we suck, we can always fudge the recording, no witnesses :)!

Delphic on Three-Phase Power at DC 9

DelphicYesterday night cat woman and I were at the DC9 to see a British pop'n'dance band named Delphic. One more good call from our friend Mary Chang!

Drug Calamities

GTII wanted to drop few word about a serious problem that plagues our society: drug addiction. But I'm not talking about the kind of drug you would think at first. I would like to talk about one of the strongest kind, the one that, even you, you didn't think you were addicted to: cars. Yes, you read well, cars! To illustrate my words, I would like to recommend you the reading of this story. This is the story of Ms S., who was forced to spend a week without a car for a supposedly school project. Please read, this is a mind blowing and very poignant story.

Starryville at Bangkok Blues, Thursday Sep 23

Take it easy, Starryville has the solution! Just come see us at the Bangkok Blues on Thursday Sep 23 2010. We will make some smooth and suave melodies for you to release your tensions and forget your daily worries.

Culprit Victims

Manufactured LandscapeCatwoman and I watched a movie called Manufactured Landscape. This is about, roughly, how the industrialized world modifies the natural landscapes. Esthetically, the picture, and pictures shown in this movie are superb, and upsetting at the same time. From a never ending traveling in a mega factory in China, to electronic components scrapyards also in China and rusted super tanker cemetery in Bangladesh, the images remind us that everything that we are doing has a consequence and an impact on nature and other people. Everybody should watch this movie.

Starryville at Dogwood Tavern this Saturday

Dogwood Tavern, Falls Church, VA First, I thought that Dogwood was some kind of a canine sculpture, carved in wood. But no! All wrong, ignorant foreign national that I am. From the Dogwood Tavern web site, I learned that Dogwood is "Our state tree & flower. The word comes from dagwood, the slender stems of very hard wood for making 'dags' (daggers, skewers)."

Anyway, This won't change our plans: we will be playing at the Dogwood Tavern in Falls Church this Saturday night, August 28. Show starts at 9pm, up until there's no more beer to drink at the bar. Come and help us set up the Dogwood on fire!!!
