The Dawn Chorus / The Retrospective Soundtrack Players - Blogging all over the World

My name is Kyle. I am a happily failing indie/punk/folk/country/rock musician from Hampshire, UK. I have been singing and songwriting in The Dawn Chorus since 2005, and The Retrospective Soundtrack Players since 2010. I love these two bands like my brother/wife rolled into one. This blog details the shows I have played with both bands, in chronological order.

CCXV - The Wine Vaults, Portsmouth - 29/12/11

Thursday 29th December 2011
The Wine Vaults, Portsmouth

The Day of the Rabblement
Kyle D Evans
The Real Raj

It's nice to do a festive gig, in this one I played 4 Christmas songs (Have yourself..., Blue Christmas, Christmas is Awesome (Reuben) and Yo Zushi's Christmas Song (Yo Zushi)). I also played one new DC song, 2 old DC songs and one new RSP song. It's a very confusing time at the moment; with a new DC and RSP album coming soonish I have 25+ finished songs but no bands to play them with. Must get the full band shows going again!

This was one of those gigs where my relief that there were plenty of people in dissolved into frustration that they weren't all listening. First world problems! It was ok though, to be fair most people were in to see DOTR, and they did not disappoint. It was the first time I'd seen them as a five-piece with mandolin and violin and they really got the place moving. My parents loved it too. I can't wait to see them play again.

New year's resolutions for 2012:

  1. finally release new DC album
  2. release new RSP album
  3. play 50 gigs between DC/RSP/solo (this is unlikely but i'm aiming high)
  4. write some pop songs for incredible young singer that Nelly has discovered
  5. read more
  6. learn more
  7. spend less time on twitter
that'll do.
