Pretty Dirty

Hey all,

It’s no surprise that Character Nine has been quiet for a little while, but I thought I’d share some update about what we’ve been unto since the the last time we played out.  Also, It’s a little ridiculous that “We’re Coming To Boston” has been the first post on this site for coming on two years. Unacceptable!

Ladies & Gentlemen, peep this:  Pretty Dirty

Pretty Dirty Music

Samantha Farrell, Jon Crowe, Chris DeSanty, Pete Durning

Jon & Desant are working with the lovely and talented Samantha Farrell & Pete Durning to create gritty soulful jams with deep groves and steamy vocals.  They’ve played a few shows at Arlene’s Grocery and Rockwood Music Hall, and they’ve been hard at work on a debut EP.  Here’s a taste…

 

Annnnnnd this:

 

Is that foxy or what!?!

Stay tuned here and on The Pretty Dirty Facebook Page for more updates on the Boot Stompin’ EP.  You can also check back here for updates on other C9 projects and side projects as they drop.

We’re Going to Boston!

Hey Team,

For the first time ever, Character Nine is playing Boston, MA.  We were lucky enough to sync up with our friends Chris Cubeta & The Liars Club and share the bill at Church of Boston, an awesome looking venue near Fenway Park.

If you live in the area, or just feel like going on tour with ‘Nine, we would love to see you at the show. Check out our Facebook invite to learn more about the details and RSVP.

The Essentials:

Character Nine
Saturday, June 26th | 9pm to 11pm
Church of Boston | 69 Kilmarnock St. (Fenway Area)

Woodwork

This is one from our back catalog, called “Woodwork.”  Although short and simple, I’ll bet it’s the prettiest song you’ve heard all day. [Right-Click to Download]

Breaking Upwards

Far more influential ink than mine has been spilled over Daryl, Zoe, & Peter’s movie Breaking Upwards, so I will save the ‘wax poetic’ for another occasion.  Instead, I’m just going to tell you to see it: See this movie.

After a successful opening weekend at the IFC Theater in NYC, their run has been extended to through Sunday, April 11th.  They open in Los Angeles on Friday, and if things go well, IFC might consider a nation-wide release.

If you don’t live in either of those cities, they’ve got you covered as well.  You can watch it home through your cable provider’s On Demand menu.  How bout that?

Richie Kotzen Live @ BB King’s

Just thought I’d post some photos I took of Richie Kotzen’s last show in NYC.

What an amazing time. Richie is one of the most talented rock vocalists I know of. His vocal chops are only exceed by his work on the guitar. He has the technical mastery and speed on par with any ‘shredder’ but the taste and soul of an old-school bluesman. It’s an unbelievable combination of talent that gave way to one of the most impressive live performances I’ve ever seen.

If you want to see Richie for yourself, he’s coming back to NYC to play the Highline Ballroom on May 25th and promote his new album Peace Sign.  Barring an act of god, you can bet that the four of us will be among the melted faces in attendance.
