• The Baseball Project

    In 2008 they busted out of the box and easily reached first with their Frozen Ropes
    and Dying Quails.  The Baseball Project was on base and immediately posed a
    threat to go further.
    In 2011, they moved on to second with some wildness aptly called High and
    Inside.  They were halfway home.
    Three years later in 2014, the quintet of Big Stars moved on down the line to the
    aptly titled 3 rd , an epic double dip delight of craftsmanship and savvy.
    And there they stayed.  For 9 long years at the hot corner, but we’re happy to say
    that The Baseball Project is finally coming home, scoring big and touching ‘em all
    with their fourth album Grand Salami Time.  The scoreboard is lighting up and the
    fireworks are illuminating the sky
    Speaking of reaching home, this album is a homecoming of sorts, as the band
    recorded and produced the album with none other than the legendary Mitch
    Easter.  BBP members Peter Buck and Mike Mills’ made their first albums with
    Mitch back in the early 80s with a swingin' little combo called R.E.M.
    Scott McCaughey and Steve Wynn kept busy themselves, busting out new tunes
    with the Minus 5/Young Fresh Fellows (Scott) and The Dream Syndicate (Steve),
    while stockpiling a passel of penned poetics about the national pastime, many co-
    written with Peter.  Mike adds a new classic of his own about doctored baseballs
    called “Stuff.”
    Linda Pitmon, who along with Peter and Scott has been part of a steady rhythmic
    nucleus, bashing out epic rock platters with Filthy Friends, Alejandro Escovedo,
    Luke Haines & Peter Buck, is back driving the ship from behind her mighty drum
    All in all, a fancy pedigree but, as Wynn points out, “this is our only band that plays
    stadiums” -- true story as The Baseball Project has performed full sets along with
    the National Anthem and “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” at major league parks in

    Boston, Chicago, Milwaukee, Denver, Minneapolis, Philadelphia and more minor
    league and spring training fields, as well as having thrown out some exceptional
    first pitches (nothing but strikes!) as well.
    It's all part of an unusual arc and fun story of a band whose first gig was an
    appearance on Late Night with David Letterman followed by a festival in a
    medieval Spanish city.  For a quintet that has seemingly done everything over the
    years with their other bands, The Baseball Project always offers new and
    uncharted experiences.
    The album was recorded at Mitch Easter’s fabled Fidelitorium Studios in
    Kernersville, North Carolina, with the entire band performing live together in the
    same room, a joyous experience that seemed impossible to imagine only one year
    before.  Mitch adds guitar on a few tracks and the record also features
    appearances by Stephen McCarthy (Long Ryders) and Steve Berlin (Los Lobos).
  • Rookie Card

    Internationally unsigned recording artists Rookie Card have been
    called alt-country, indiepop and "some of the best songwriters in San
    Diego". Their debut demo EP was nominated for a 2003 San Diego Music
    Award, a feat unheard of for a mostly self-produced first recording.
    The very next year, they took home the trophy for Best Pop Act and
    were whisked onto the covers of the San Diego Union-Tribune's Night &
    Day section and San Diego Music Matters Magazine. Besides sharing
    stages with Violent Femmes, ABC, Calexico, Bow Wow Wow and Soul
    Asylum, their live shows produced countless infamous moments from
    dragging an audience outside to play a perfectly timed "Back In The
    USSR" with an airplane fly-over to becoming the first band to ever
    play with the world's largest outdoor instrument (the 90 year old
    Spreckles Organ in Balboa Park). The Rookies went on indefinite hiatus
    in 2006 but reunite regularly for leap years and BIg Bear house
    concerts. They still rank high amongst the most memorable of
    performers, living, dead or unborn.
